Revelations Entertainment Would Release New Films on the Internet

Morgan Freeman and his movie company, Revelations Entertainment, have joined Intel in a strategy to bypass multiplexes and distribute first-run movies directly to home theaters via the Internet, the Wall Street Journal reported. "We're not pushing his technology – the technology is pushing us," Freeman told the newspaper. The Journal noted that in the past, releasing a film directly to video implied that the film was so bad that movie executives had concluded that it would tank at the box office. However, Freeman said that such a perception would not likely be accorded the Internet, which, he said, users perceive as cool.
