If you couldn’t catch The Undefeated in movie theaters, you can now watch it in your own living room:
ARC Entertainment, the distributor of “The Undefeated,” and Victory Film Group, producers of the film about Gov. Sarah Palin’s rise from obscurity to national prominence, jointly announced that beginning today September 1st, the film is available to 75 million homes via Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View access through national and regional cable and satellite operators.
Taking on the political establishment, The Undefeated chronicles Governor Sarah Palin’s rise from obscurity to become one of America’s new generation of leaders. See for yourself the real story of the woman who is always in the spotlight, but whose story is largely unknown.
This On Demand release coincides with the announced Tea Party rallies in Iowa and New Hampshire over Labor Day weekend.
ARC Entertainment content can be seen on most major cable and satellite companies such as DIRECTV, DISH Network, Comcast, COX, Charter, and Time Warner Cable.
Trevor Drinkwater, CEO of ARC Entertainment, said, “Since the film opened in select markets across the country on July 15th we have been inundated with requests from people wanting the film to be made available in their market. After methodically analyzing the most effective ways to bring this galvanizing film to the widest audience as soon as possible we have determined that Video-on-Demand, Pay-Per-View and DVD sales will be the best modalities by which to deliver this film as widely and as quickly as possible. We have created partnerships with national cable, satellite, and mass retailers to achieve our distribution goals.”
“This title is absolutely perfect for Video-on-Demand and Pay-Per-View backed by a traditional and significant marketing campaign. We are incredibly excited about having this film made available to the entire country earlier than expected,” said Glenn Bracken Evans, the film’s producer. “A traditional windowed release would not have allowed us to maximize viewership of this highly sought after film,” continued Evans.
Filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon stated, “Given the strong audience reaction we have determined there is overwhelming demand for us to get this film out broadly enough to cover the entire nation in September and October. In a 90-day period from September through November we will be able to effectively cover the nation through multiple distribution platforms.”
The Video-on-Demand and Pay-Per-View deals with strategic partners will be backed by a significant marketing campaign to heighten awareness in all markets to the film’s availability.
Written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon and produced by Victory Film Group co-founder Glenn Bracken Evans and Dan Fleuette, “The Undefeated” was independently financed by Victory Film Group and its partners.
The film includes leading prominent political commentators Mark Levin, Tammy Bruce and Andrew Breitbart as well as conservative activists Kate Obenshain, Sonnie Johnson and Jamie Radtke. Additionally, the film features interviews with Alaskan civil servants, elected officials and advisors who were involved in Alaskan politics during Governor Palin’s tenure.
