Who says Netflix doesn’t have any good movies?

After focusing on original TV and shows that you can binge-watch, the streaming service has landed its biggest movie debut yet.

Brad Pitt’s new movie “War Machine” will debut on Netflix at the same time it lands in theaters.

Reports say Netflix spent a cool $30 million to get the film — and to keep annoying theater owners, of course.

“War Machine” is a satirical comedy that stars Pitt as a general who leads the American war effort in Afghanistan. It’s due out next year.

Netflix has announced a couple other movie debuts, but we all know that when you get Brad Pitt, that takes it to a whole other level.
