World's first Internet movie premiere

Written by Jari Ketola @ 07 Sep 2003 11:22 User comments (1)

"This Is Not a Love Song", a movie from the film writer Simon Beaufoy ("The Full Monty") was, at least according to UK Film Council, the first ever "major" movie to premiere on the Internet when it began screening on Friday.
However the huge media attention received by the movie caused the download website at ThisIsNotaLoveSong.com to overload, and the downloads have temporarily been suspended. It should be available to the public again in a couple of days.

The movie costs 2-3 (pounds sterling), and can only be downloaded and viewed on a PC equiped with Windows operating system and Windows Media Player 9. It is also only available to UK residents.

Hmmm..... I would rather just go and watch it in a theatre or cinema. Well, actually, I wouldn't watch this though. :P


Everyone is entitled to their own true opinion. Either respect that or don't.
