Netflix will launch Space Force to series soon, reuniting Steve Carell and The Office creator Greg Daniels in the process.

Roma Theatrical Release

Roma has been pulling in awards left and right this season, and director Alfonso Cuarón has been the recipient of several of them as the director, writer, producer, editor, and cinematographer of the foreign language drama. At every turn, he’s been extremely grateful to Netflix for releasing a film that most studios probably wouldn’t touch. But a recent problem has emerged that has Cuarón unhappy with Netflix.

The entirety of Roma is a Spanish-language film featuring subtitles for those who don’t speak the language. However, for some reason, in the country of Spain where Spanish is the native language, a set of subtitles in Iberian Spanish is being offered, implying some kind of disconnect between the Spanish spoken in Mexico and the Spanish spoken in Spain. This is what has upset director Alfonso Cuarón, who calls it “parochial, ignorant and offensive to Spaniards themselves.”
