Freakonomics – Trailer
Hier der Trailer zu „Freakonomics“. Sieht aus, wie eine meiner zukünftigen Lieblinsdokus. Der Film wird übrigens einen Monat vor’m Start in den Kinos auf iTunes zum Download angeboten. Wahrscheinlich nicht hierzulande, but still: Bold move!
The Freakonomics documentary, based on the book of the same name by Steven Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner and directed by a small stable of big-name documentarians, has a bold release strategy of the sort we wish more Hollywood movies would attempt: You’ll be able to download and watch the entire film on iTunes starting September 3, almost a full month before its theatrical debut on October 1.
While the indie, brainy Freakonomics isn’t likely to be a big box-office powerhouse (nor, for that matter, do we know if it’s any good), it’s refreshing to see a movie’s distribution conducted with the experience and convenience of its viewers in mind rather than by movie theater chains. And it’s in keeping with the contrarian ethos of Freakonomics itself.
