Why Steven Spielberg is teaming up with Netflix comes as a surprise

In their post on the Netflix / Amblin partnership, Deadline revealed that this deal does not mean that Netflix automatically gets the first dibs on films produced by Amblin. Instead, some of Steven Spielberg’s films will continue to go to Universal Pictures, and others will be released on Netflix. Amblin had previously established ties with Netflix, as he co-produced The Trial of the Chicago 7, which was originally slated to hit theaters by Paramount Pictures, but was later acquired by the streaming service. The two companies are also collaborating on Maestro, Bradley Cooper’s film with Leonard Bernstein which is in pre-production.
