Shane Carruth's Upstream Color gets a full trailer and a release plan!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Shane Carruth's follow up to Primer is finally going to be seen by audiences in the next week when it premieres at the Sundance Film Festival.
I'm having to miss Sundance this year, which makes me sad, but thankfully we already know that Carruth's Upstream Color won't sit around for a year before coming out. Carruth isn't waiting around for a big distributor or even a small, boutique distributor. He's putting the film out himself, booking it in New York at the IFC Center on April 5th, then expanding theatrically to LA, Seattle, Boston, San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago and other big markets.
Around that time he'll also have a digital distribution option, which will lead to Blu-Ray/DVD. You know, the standard Magnolia/IFC style release, but instead of being spearheaded by a distribution company, Carruth is doing it via his own company, erbp.
That's an interesting experiment. If filmmakers can take the place of a massive distribution company and succeed that opens up a whole new world for young filmmakers. Kevin Smith did something similar with Red State, but Smith had a couple decades worth of a fanbase built up around himself. Carruth made a splash with indie fans, but is far from the broader name than Smith is.
They've also released the first trailer for the film, which can be seen below. I don't know what the fuck is going on, but I felt that same way when watching Primer and unlike most times I feel that way when watching a movie, I didn't think that was a bad thing.
