Director's Commentary: Not Just for DVDs Anymore?

Everyone else in the theater talks through the movie...why not the director?

by | September 7, 2007 | Comments

If you’ve ever sat in a darkened theater and thought to yourself “What this movie really needs is a commentary track,” CHUD has some excellent news for you.

Apparently, John August and Ryan Reynolds — the director and star of The Nines, respectively — have recorded a commentary track for the film. Instead of waiting for The Nines to reach DVD, however, they’ve made their commentary available now, for free, as a download at August’s official site.

As CHUD notes, this is an interesting way of getting people to pay twice to see a movie during its theatrical run. On the other hand, we’re not sure there are too many filmgoers who would be willing to pony up for another ticket just to watch a movie with commentary. (If they could even hear it — how loud would you have to crank up your iPod to drown out those speakers?)

At the very least, it’s a cool way of taking advantage of technology — and don’t forget the “free” part. To read more — and to download the commentary track for The Nines — follow the link below.
