Not only that, but the Facebook instant streaming option will also coincide with the biopic’s theatrical opening, in a welcome first for any U.S. film to date.
‘Marley’ will become available for a $6.99 rental and released via video-on-demand on April 20th. Part of the proceeds from Facebook sales of the Bob Marley documentary will be used to finance the Save the Children organization.
Fun fact: Reed Hastings, chairman and CEO of on-demand video streaming giant Netflix, sits on Facebook’s board of directors.
