Netflix has already conquered the world of TV with hit homegrown shows like 'Orange is the New Black' and 'House of Cards'.

Now it's taking on Hollywood too with a series of original films, the first of which will premiere in October.

beasts of no nation

Called 'Beasts of No Nation', it will feature 'The Wire''s Idris Elba and will air on Netflix on October 16th and hit US cinemas the same day.

It follows a Nigerian warlord (Elba) who takes a child soldier under his wing.

Next for Netflix is the first of a four-film deal it signed with Adam Sandler.

Comedy western 'The Ridiculous Six' will arrive on the streaming service on December 11th. The title is a play on Tarantino's forthcoming 'The Hateful Eight'.

The sequel to 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon' will follow in the first three months of 2016. Called 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend', it will also be shown in IMAX cinemas in China.

And in March 2016, 'Pee-Wee's Big Holiday' will hit the streaming service.

So there you have it. Some sound good, some less promising.

Netflix is hellbent on world domination, pledging to be in every country in the world by the end of 2016.

It's coming to Italy, Spain and Portugal in October, though that still leaves it with around 150 countries to go.
