The plan is likely as follows:

1.) Show the industry is willing to try new things by releasing a torrent and DVDs
2.) Make sure that movie doesn't show in theatres and goes straight to DVD so no one knows about it
3.) Make sure that movie is a BAD movie
4.) Blame the lack of DVD sales on free-loading downloaders
5.) More evidence that bittorrent is ruining their business


A film that cost $1,000 to make and boring, will be free??

Cant wait......

Better than a letter from your IP, and the likelihood of making more money off of IP fines that the movie cost. :haha:

I'd go just to see the tunnels under Sydney. Has anyone made a movie about giant plastic alligator prompts under New York?
