Avengers director Joss Whedon released his newest film In Your Eyes online just as it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, joining the ranks of filmmakers experimenting with straight-to-consumer digital distribution.
In a surprise video message to fans, Whedon said he was disappointed he could not be in New York for the debut of the paranormal love story that he wrote and which was directed by Brin Hill. But then he noted it was available worldwide and online for a US$5 (RM17) fee.
The film is available at inyoureyesmovie.com and the US-based video-sharing website Vimeo.
“It is exciting for us because it means we get to explore yet another new form of distribution – and we get US$5,” said the director behind the blockbuster Avengers franchise from Marvel.
In Your Eyes is the love story of an East Coast housewife named Rebecca, played by Zoe Kazan who is strangely connected with an ex-con played by Michael Stahl-David, who lives in New Mexico.
It is the second feature film by Los Angeles-based Bellwether Pictures, which was founded by Whedon and producer Kai Cole to bring micro-budget films directly to the audience. The company released Much Ado About Nothing, a retelling of the Shakespearean comedy, in 2012.
The Avengers the film that united Marvel superheroes in 2012, grossed more than US$1.46bil worldwide. Whedon’s sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron is due out in 2015. – Reuters
