Netflix partners with hilarious celebrity to make cord cutting a whole lot funnier

Netflix, Adam Sandler and IMAX are teaming up - and cutting your neighborhood movie theater out of the deal. That's right, coming off of the hilarious success of "Grown Ups 2," famous funnyman Sandler is bringing his bent brand of giggle movies to cord cutters.

While you can stream older Adam Sandler movies on Netflix, the '90s are over and Netflix subscribers everywhere will soon be getting first dibs on his next movie. And what's better is that they could be seeing the movie as early as 2015 according a New York Times interview with Ted Sarandos, a Netflix exec.

Netflix has, until recently, spent most of its efforts on taking on classic cable. They release Netflix original TV shows in massive "binge watchable" packages. In this case, Netflix has partnered with IMAX as a potential distributor for the films.
