Earlier this week, news broke that AMC and Regal Cinemas, the two largest movie theater chains in the country, were teaming up to distribute films. The move came in response to the studios' plans to release theatrical films to VOD services like DirecTV in shorter release windows -- an action that would put theaters at a distinct disadvantage in terms of revenue when competing with the home market. Tired of relying solely on the studios for their product, the AMC-Regal deal would allow the two chains to pick up indie films for a low cost and run them in their theaters instead of relying solely on studio product.
AMC has taken things one step further, announcing today a partnership with The Collective, an entertainment and content management company, and horror website Bloody-Disgusting, designed to bring international and under-the-radar horror films to a wider audience.
