One week after.Posted: March 22, 2011
As you might have heard, Interplanetary hit DVD last Tuesday. I’ve been shamelessly pimping the Amazon.com option, but that’s not the only way to see our little Mars movie. The awesome Paige (at Shock-O-Rama, our awesome distributor) let me know about these additional Interplanetary merchants…
Brick and mortar rental: Family Video, America’s largest independent video rental chain, offers Interplanetary in all of its stores.
Amazon Redux: it is unlikely Interplanetary will be offered for free through Amazon’s new “Prime” VOD program. It should be available soon for sale or rental as an Amazon digital download, though.
Netflix: no word yet from Netflix.
TV video-on-demand: no news on this yet. Paige told me that this market is increasingly difficult to crack. However, she is working a couple of different angles and is “cautiously optimistic.”
Interplanetary listing at AllMovie.com.
The second episode of the Crewless podcast/commentary thing is now available.
Amazon is selling 100 digital albums for five bucks each. For a limited time only, I assume. There’s some good stuff to choose from. I recommend the Queen “hits” collection (20 songs!), Nirvana’s In Utero, and Radiohead’s OK Computer. (via Stacey)
