Tomorrow. Interplanetary. Netflix.Posted: August 1, 2011
After more than four years of working and waiting, I feel like Interplanetary has finally really arrived. That’s because, as of tomorrow, our little Mars-sploitation flick will be available to the masses via Netflix’s streaming “Watch Instantly” service.
Update: Netflix’s Interplanetary page is now live at http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Interplanetary/70197404?trkid=2361637, though the site won’t let you add it to your instant queue yet.
This is a big deal. Short of an actual old-school television airing, I think a Netflix deal is the best way to get a movie to a large number of viewers. If any of your friends have a fondness for sci-fi and a Netflix account, I hope you’ll encourage them to add the movie to their instant queue. I’d also encourage folks who have already seen Interplanetary to add it to their queue. As I understand it, Netflix considers users’ queues when deciding on whether or not to carry (or continue to carry) a particular film.
As if that wasn’t enough, the movie is also available for rent or purchase via Amazon’s “Instant Video” service.
Thanks to the gang at Shock-O-Rama Cinema for making all this happen.
