Filed Under 'Things You Definitely Don't Have Time For': This 72-Minute-Long Movie Trailer
A standard two-hour movie gets a two-minute trailer, so this 72-minute trailer for a 720-hour movie is super short, right? Is that a way that we can make this make sense?
Ambiance is the latest (and, he says, last) film by Swedish artist Anders Weberg, and when finished, it plans to come in at a running time of 720 hours. This is the first trailer, a measly 72 minutes. Weberg plans to release another 7 hour, 20 minute-long trailer in 2016, and a 72 hour one in 2018. The final film is set to be released in 2020, shown once and “syncronized in all the continents of the world and then destroyed.”
For some perspective, this movie will be 30 days long. An entire month, nonstop. That’s 43,200 minutes long. You could watch The Fugitive 332 times. You could watch Firefly 64 times. You could probably watch the entire The Lord of the Rings plus the two Hobbits at least twice.
This is the trailer. If you can make it more than 60 seconds without skipping through, you are a stronger person than I.
