As we all know the major movie studios are struggling to keep people going to the theaters. These days most people are either willing to wait the 2 or 3 months it takes for a movie to come out on DVD, already happily downloading movies from P2P networks, or just too focused on American Idol to care about this summer’s blockbuster — probably the latter since voting on the next American Idol is evidently more important than voting for the president.

The way I see it, it’s only a matter of time before most people are downloading movies (legally), burning them onto DVDs, and watching them when and how they want. Movies that would never achieve wide-release by traditional means will still be able to show to an audience of millions.

Surprisingly, this has already started happening! I just came across this amazing movie (Unflinching Triumph: The Philip Rockhammer Story) that is only being distributed for online — and for free. You can download the whole movie and burn it onto a DVD or watch it with their online player.

Power to the people,
