Dave Grohl’s Sound City Hits Video on Demand in Just Two Weeks!
If you’re excited for Sound City, Dave Grohl’s new documentary about California’s legendary Sound City Studios, than I have good news for you: while the film is just premiering at the Sundance Film Festival this week, Deadline reports that Gravitas Ventures will release the movie “worldwide via cable, satellite, telco, online, hotel, and airline VOD [Video on Demand] operators on February 1.” If you’re bad with calendars, that just about two weeks from now. And since VOD is generally cheaper than a theatrical ticket, that means that not only can you watch the movie from the comfort of your own home, but you can watch it for a fraction of the price you’d pay in a theater.
Of course, there’s something to be said for the communal experience (to say nothing of the larger screens) of actually going to a movie. So if your preference is to see the movie in a big dark room full of strangers, you’ll be happy to learn that Variance Films will also be giving the movie a theatrical release in North America… although when that will happen, and how large of a release it will be, is still unclear.
And in case that wasn’t enough Sound City madness for you, Antiquiet has debuted “From Can to Can’t”, the collaboration Grohl recorded with Corey Taylor for the film’s soundtrack. Unsurprisingly, it’s pretty good. Check it out below:
And here’s the trailer for the flick in case you still haven’t seen it yet:
