Netflix picks up an animated movie from ‘Into The Spider-Verse’ producers

Sony Pictures originally planned to release the film in theaters last October, but it now won’t hit Netflix until later this year. Netflix reportedly spent more than $100 million to acquire the rights, according to Variety.

The Mitchells vs. The Machines is about a family who are struggling to relate to each other as technology plays a larger role in their lives. On a cross-country road trip to take eldest daughter Katie to college, helper robots and other machines emerge as a threat to their family bonding time.

Along with a talented voice cast (which includes Abbi Jacobson, Maya Rudolph and Danny McBride), The Mitchells vs. The Machines has plenty of behind-the-scenes clout. Among the producers of the film are Philip Lord and Christopher Miller, who were behind the likes of The Lego Movie and Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Director and co-writer Mike Rianda previously worked on Gravity Falls.
