Unique Diggers Release

04.07.2007
DIGGERS, a movie directed by Katherine Dieckmann and featuring the always great Paul Rudd (ANCHORMAN), Maura Tierney (ER), Lauren Ambrose (SIX FEET UNDER) and Josh Hamilton (THE BOURNE SUPREMACY) is gearing up for a fairly unique release; it is set to open in cinemas on April 27th and then almost immediately on DVD on May 1st, just four days later.

The film is a 'funny and heartfelt' 70s era piece set in the Hamptons area of Long Island. The story revolves around two generations of hard-living clam diggers trying to maintain their way of life in the face of sweeping changes. From the trailer it looks like an offbeat comedy of some promise. Even though I thought Paul Rudd was a tool when he decided he would rather sleep with a young boy than Jennifer Aniston in THE OBJECT OF MY AFFECTION, he's deserved a solid lead role for years and maybe this will be the one that makes him, since right now I don't really associate him with anything but Sex Panther cologne. I've had a strange but very real affection for Maura Tierney since LIAR LIAR and the supporting cast all look like they can pull of the comedy that's needed of them.

The movie also features a sweet soundtrack with the likes of REM, Aimee Mann and Wilco in on the action. Click on the poster below to check out the movie's official site, where you can find the movie's trailer and additional info.

Explaination

No one should be mystified by this move. Obviously the studio thinks this movie will not have any lasting power in theaters, so they're gearing up for a big opening weekend and then pushing to their real money maker, the DVD. I figure this will become more and more common in time. Also, I am the only one who is turned off by anachronistic soundtracks? REM and Wilco in a movie about the 70s?

I don't think a film should be released on DVD until AFTER is has left all theatrical screens completely. But once out, it should be released on DVD as SOON as POSSIBLE. It's good for the public as well as the studios for one main reason;

The Desire to See it!

If we're foreced to wait nine months to a year just to see a DVD of the film we saw and loved in the theaters, we'll begin to lose interest in it. The desire to watch it will fade and then when it IS released, we won't feel the need

The desire to watch it will fade and then when it IS released, we won't feel the need to watch it all that much anymore. And it also helps those who cannot see it in theaters as well.

im not that keen on it either, but i wouldnt say there's a trend of it happening.

i can only think of "bubble", the soderbergh flick that has done it, but maybe i'm just misinformed.

why

I don't understand why this trend is starting with releasing a movie in theatres then on DVD immediately after. Do they want to kill the theatre experience? Whos going to buy tickets to this in theatres if it's already on DVD? Stupid ideas.
