As folks watched the network television debut of Corner Gas: The Movie last night, we used the hashtag #CornerGasMovie. That hashtag did something the cool kids on the street call “Trending Worldwide”. That’s something us middle-aged guys call ‘Not too shabby!’ We were later informed by the network that Twitter shut down the hashtag for awhile, because it was surpassing the allowed number of times it could be used in a specified period. HA! Corner Gas fans broke Twitter??? Take THAT, Kardashian’s oily caboose!View Full Post
The theatrical run of CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE is now behind us. It was a limited special event run, as part of Cineplex’s ‘Front Row Centre’ offerings. The response from people was truly incredible – beyond what we could have hoped. There were reports of sold out theatres from all across this big old country, and night after night we were blown away by the support and positive messages from you awesome people. The cast and crew and screenwriters have been truly and honestly gobsmacked by all this. I’ll never be able to say thank you enough, but if there was ever a practical use for Avogadro’s Number, it would be to calculate my gratitude.
During the theatrical run, and since, a tremendous amount of people… you heard me… a TREMENDOUS AMOUNT… have been asking me on Twitter (and occasionally in person) about when they can see CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE on TV, or when it will be available on DVD/BluRay. The best way to answer those questions is to post a quick info blurb up here on my site. This, ladies and gentlemen, is that very blurb.
* If you have TheMovieNetwork here in Canada, the movie will begin playing on Dec.8. A quick check of my electronic calendar informs me that is today.
* It will then air via what is being called a “Super Simulcast” (dramatic!) on Dec.17, whereby it will be broadcast on CTV, CTV2, CTVGo and the CraveTV steaming platform.
* Following that, it will air on TheComedyNetwork.
* As for VOD… uh… I don’t know. When I get that info, I will update this post (so feel free to check back often.)
Thanks again for your continued interest, and incredible support over the years. It is truly and greatly appreciated.View Full Post
