More and more movie studios are using unconventional methods to distribute their movies, and it gives us a lot more options than we ever had before. It used to be that if you didn’t live on one of the coasts, or in a huge city, you could never catch an independent or arthouse film while it ran in theaters. You had to wait months and months for the film to be released on DVD.
Now, we are seeing more and more movies getting a “pre-theatrical release” via On Demand. You can choose an outlet, pay a minimal fee, and watch the movie in the comfort of your home.
Ryan Gosling’s latest film, All Good Things, will make it’s debut On Demand on November 5, a full month before it shows in theaters. The movie also stars Kirsten Dunst, Kristin Wiig, Frank Langella, and Philip Baker Hall.
Andrew Jarecki (Capturing the Friedmans) directs and produces the film. Jarecki also produced this year’s Sundance hit Catfish.
Synopsis: Inspired by the most notorious missing persons case in New York history, All Good Things is a love story and murder mystery set against the backdrop of a New York real estate dynasty in the 1980’s.
You can watch the official trailer embedded after the jump. The movie will be available On Demand via Amazon, Play Station 3, ATT Uverse, Xbox 360, and more. For a complete list of available outlets, visit the Magnolia website.
