Brand new film distributor MOVIEFARM, which was co-founded by film industry distribution veteran Martin Myers, has today announced that Beautiful Blue Eyes will premiere in London on July 19, before releasing theatrically in the UK from July 22
Starring the late, great two-time Oscar-nominated Roy Scheider (Jaws, The French Connection, Marathon Man), in a mesmerizing final performance, and written and directed by Joshua Newton, the film is the first in what will be the ultimate movie experience for film lovers through new distributor MOVIEFARM, which has picked up the global rights.
With Scheider sadly passing away during filming in 2008, completion of the film was put on hold until AI and CG technology was advanced enough to overcome the technical challenges faced by the filmmakers and now the iconic actor’s fans will soon be able to celebrate the legend on screens this summer in 4k.
MOVIEFARM’s debut release is set in Germany with flashbacks to Nazi-occupied Poland, narrating the story of Joseph (Scheider), a retired NYPD cop who visits his estranged son Ronnie (Scott Cohen) in Nuremberg and insists that his neighbour is the SS Commander (Helmut Berger), who slaughtered his entire family in a Polish forest in 1941. In flashbacks, young Joseph (Alexander Newton), who has a romance with a beautiful young woman (Sarah Bolger), escapes the Nazis and joins Resistance fighters in the Polish forests. As older Joseph enlists the help of his son Ronnie to kidnap Schrager, we’re confronted by moral issues of justice versus vengeance, the meaning of the title “Beautiful Blue Eyes”, and a gripping and unforgettable twist-laden climax.
Ahead of the London and New York charity premieres of Beautiful Blue Eyes, MOVIEFARM will be releasing 10,000 unique NFT action figure collectibles of screen icon Roy Scheider as he was in the film, designed by cutting edge digital artists.
Following a theatrical window and alongside availability to rent on main VOD platforms MOVIEFARM will be offering transferable ownership of purchased digital movies it releases under its brand name MOVIEKEY™, with Beautiful Blue Eyes being the first of many. Audiences can trade them, gift them, and resell them just like a BLU-RAY. Following the Premieres, owners of the digital art collectibles will be entitled to watch the movie at special cinema screenings across the globe, giving them the chance to meet the director and select members of the cast either in person or via Zoom; ask questions about the movie, and enjoy the exclusive MOVIEFARM physical movie theater experience.
