This is an interesting story.
2929 Entertainment is planning on releasing movies simulataneously on home video and in theaters. It's an interesting idea. I heard they did that in Japan with some releases to combat piracy. I'm not sure I'm in favor of it for all movies, but for some smaller movies, it's probably a really good idea. Because if you're not living in LA, NYC, Chicago, etc. A lot of independent movies don't come your way. (Although, I will say that Buffalo, NY has a healthy supply of independent movies.) So releasing them on video right away would allow them to be seen right away by a lot more people. I'm still one of those that enjoys going to movie theaters and seeing movies on the big screen. But I also don't like downloading movies that look terrible. Waste of my time. Anyway, read the article.
