Last night the romance film In Your Eyes premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Immediately after the screening, Joss Whedon, who wrote and produced the film, made a video announcement revealing that In Your Eyes would now be available to rent online for the entire world to see.
For a mere five bucks at that.
Yes, Whedon, director Brin Hill, and Co. followed the Beyonce and Louis C.K. model of 21st century take-the-power-back the entertainment releases and they weren't the only ones. The New York Times notes that a handful of other films at Tribeca released their movies online shortly after the premiere. Beneath the Harvest Sky, Bright Days Ahead, and The Bachelor Weekend were all put on Itunes on Tuesday following their Tribeca screenings.
