I’m thrilled to announce that Junction is now available on iTunes as of today, July 14, 2015! International markets will find “Junction” released as “Hostage.” But don’t worry, if you rent “Hostage” and end up watching Bruce Willis as a washed out police negotiator that is ok…Miramax will thank you, but you won’t get the same experience as enjoying 4 strung out meth-heads cruising into Verterra Hills for a B&E that will change their lives’ forever. So, be sure you are watching Tony Glazer‘s film not Florent-Emilio Siri’s, and I will be sure to thank you personally.
I received a few comments on social media regarding today’s release, and the comments boil down to this question, “Didn’t you already release Junction?” I’ll explain and give you a summer reading assignment. Summer Crockett Moore shared a great article on film release windows (originally posted by BirthDeathMovies.com) a few weeks ago on social media. Many people “liked” the article, but did you read it? It gives some information on basic film releasing and some good reading about the challenges we face in finding our market and making money, especially with the impact of Netflix as a major market disruptor for film releasing.
For Junction, we released in select theaters–and earned great reviews and amazing press. That was our first release window. Our second window was making it available on select platforms for DVD rental. And consistent with the article, we needed to make the best use of distance between release windows. Finally, we are where we are today, completing the digital drop to VOD platforms and giving a worldwide audience access to enjoy “Junction” via iTunes and other VOD platforms.
Enjoy Junction and keep checking back….we have more movies coming for you!
