When it comes to movies, there are a variety of ways to experience them. You can head to theaters to catch one on the big screen, you can wait until one is available on VOD, Blu-ray or DVD to watch one from the comfort of your home, and you can even take movies with you on your mobile devices like tablets and smart phones. However, Woody Harrelson is about to deliver a movie in a way no one has ever experienced one before: live.
The man who will be seen facing off against an army of simians in War for the Planet of the Apes next summer will spend the early part of 2017 directing Lost in London, the world’s first live movie that will be shot as it’s being broadcast into theaters around the country. You might think that sounds like nothing more than a stage production broadcast live into theaters, which is done all the time, but this is much different.
