Just two weeks after being released to theatres Morgan Freeman's new film will be available to watch online. Freeman will use clickstar.com to release the film online to complement a limited theatrical release. Reports the Washington Post: "[Freeman's] production company, Revelations Entertainment, joined forces with computer processor giant Intel to sell the movie online. ... In both an effort to pull in a large audience and protect the film from piracy, Freeman and his partners hope to usher in a new era for filmmakers and audiences."
