    AFM News: Freestyle Digital Media to Focus on Digital, Cable, VOD Distribution

    In case you were wondering, VOD distribution is here to stay. Look at JC Chandor's $3.5 million Margin Call, which lured a strong ensemble of name actors led by Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons and Zachary Quinto, and has passed the $1.5 million mark theatrically in limited release, as it was also available day-and-date on VOD.

    Watch: New Footage In The International Trailer For Cameron Crowe's 'We Bought A Zoo'

    Also Shows Off Some Of Jonsi's Score For The MovieWell, after the first trailer for Cameron Crowe's "We Bought a Zoo" arrived last month, we promptly counted it out of the Oscar race but it looks like with a meaty December release date and a big hearted story featuring cute animals, this is aiming to be Fox's "Marley & Me" for this year, though probably without the three-hankie ending. A new international trailer has arrived for the movie and in addition to a good amount of new scenes and footage -- most significantly a moment involving Patrick Fugit evaluating Matt Damon's character -- we also get a pretty nice preview of Sigur Ros frontman ...
