Big news for Citizens United Productions and Andrew Breitbart’s film Occupy Unmasked this week! We just announced an all rights distribution deal with Magnet Releasing, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, owned by Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner. Magnet is giving the film a limited theatrical release with VOD in late September to be followed by the DVD release. Along with the deal announcement, we debuted an all-new, redesigned website at http://www.occupyunmasked.com that has more details on the film, the cast, and how to take action.
It is because of the dedication of Andrew Breitbart, writer/director Stephen K. Bannon and others at Breitbart.com who have been exposing the seedy underbelly of the Occupy Wall Street movement that we were able to take viewers into the Occupy camps around the country to see first-hand the truth of what is happening there. Occupy Unmasked is a tribute to Andrew Breitbart’s legacy and now, because of this distribution deal, millions more will have access to this important film heading into November.
The support of people across the country who have shown an interest and pre-ordered the film helped us demonstrate a demand and secure this deal. Magnet Releasing co-owner Mark Cuban said, “We are releasing it because we believe there is an audience for it. We never release movies to support one side or another. We release movies because we believe they can be profitable.” Predictably, Leftists and Occupiers are already calling for boycotts against Cuban and his companies because he dares to support free speech and free markets.
Occupy Unmasked will also be screened at the RNC in Tampa at 4pm on Monday, August 27th. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, a friend of Andrew’s, will introduce the film, with a reception to follow. Free tickets are available online at http://www.citizensunited.org/rnc. We hope you can join us if you’re in town for the convention.
Please continue to support this film by pre-ordering it, going to see it in theaters in Septembe,r and ordering it on Video on Demand. Help us stand up to threats from the Occupy movement by continuing to write about it and exposing their sinister tactics. Let’s show them the power of the conservative movement over radical leftists this fall.
