A week ago I was sent an e-mail detailing the Che release plan and passed it along. Most of the information was correct but the part about Guerilla (i.e., part 2) being released on 2.20.09 wasn’t. If IFC had simply launched a Che website all ambiguity would be removed. If such a site exists it’s a well-kept secret. In any event here’s the correct info:
The full-length roadshow version Che (composed of Che, Part 1:The Argentine and Che, Part 2: Guerilla) will be released as a special one-week event on 12.12.08 in New York City at the Ziegfeld Theater and in Los Angeles at The Landmark. (Had that right.) Che will re-open on January 9th in New York and Los Angeles as two separate admissions. A national rollout will follow to the top 25 markets on January 16th and 22nd with further expansions planned. The two parts will be released simultaneously in each market.
On January 21, IFC will also make the separate parts available on IFC In Theaters, its video-on-demand platform. The two parts will be available in 50 million homes nationwide on all major cable and satellite providers in both standard and high definition versions.
