Sure, he’s had big hits, like Erin Brockovich, Ocean’s Eleven, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Sex, Lies and Videotape, and Traffic. (to name just a few), so what makes Soderbergh’s release of the movie Bubble so interesting?
Bubble will be the first movie ever released in theaters AND on dvd AND on hi-definition TV at the same time!
It’s an experiment that threatens to uproot the film industry’s long-standing “release window” formula, which staggers a picture’s release on various platforms to maximize profits. Source
About Steven Soderbergh’s Bubble Movie
The Bubble movie is being touted as another (interesting) Steven Soderbergh experience…
…one that is sure to have heads turning!
In this interview with Steven Soderbergh, see why he’s debuting his movie Bubble on DVD, cable, and in theaters all at once.
“It’s “a genre-bending exercise that is a truly original cinematic experience. Set in and around a doll factory on the Ohio/West Virginia border, the film tells the story of Martha (Debbie Doebereiner) and Kyle (Dustin James Ashley), coworkers who have formed an unlikely friendship. But when the pretty Rose (Misty Dawn Wilkins) arrives, hidden layers of emotion begin to surface, culminating in an unspeakable tragedy. Like a gifted documentarian, Soderbergh uses his nonprofessional cast to present a slice of everyday American life that is unflinchingly, achingly honest.” Source
“Bubble, starring non-actors in the smallest of stories, is likely to strike the multiplex-going audience as inelegant. But with Soderbergh’s name on it, and with an almost-reality filming style much like (but far down the socioeconomic scale from) the director’s HBO series “K Street”, it might well have an impact on the arthouse audience and on American filmmaking in general.” Source
