GIRL WALKS INTO A BAR trailer gives peek at first film made exclusively for web distribution
Here is the first trailer for Sebastian Gutierrez’s new film GIRL WALKS INTO A BAR, which was made exclusively for the web and will be available for free!
Despite the fact that his films have all done poorly at the box office or with critics. As with most of his, this new flick boasts a sweet cast that includes Carla Gugino, Zachary Quinto, Josh Hartnett, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Robert Forster, Alexis Bledel, and many more.
The story follows a group of apparent strangers who come together in a series of stories taking place in ten different bars during the course of one evening in Los Angeles. Check out the trailer and more info on the break.
Here’s the synopsis:
“Girl Walks Into a Bar connects a group of apparent strangers over one night across ten bars throughout Los Angeles. Zachary Quinto stars as a dentist who teams up with a feisty would-be assassin (Carla Gugino) to put the final touches on the plan to kill his wife. Once he makes a play for the assassin’s payment, he unknowingly sets off a chain of events that fuels a crosstown journey through the many lounges, bars, strip clubs and the occasional nudist ping pong clubs scattered across Los Angeles. By turns funny and heartbreaking, this sharp-witted comedy features ten interconnected vignettes that build to a revealing finish.”
Here is what Gutierrez had to say about the web distribution plans:
“We want to prove that Web distribution is a viable medium for theatrical quality movies which rely on story, characters and dialogue as opposed to special effects. For many reasons the theatrical indie landscape has changed drastically in the last few years, leaving many potential breakout hits without an audience. We are excited to break the rules of feature films by letting people watch our movie for free online.”
The film will be available for free on YouTube the same day it premieres at SXSW on March 11. That is also the same date that Gutierrez’s other film, ELEKTRA LUXX, opens in theaters.
