Morgan Freeman’s ClickStar

Are Intel and Morgan Freeman’s Revelation Studios aiming to overthrow the old distribution model of the movie business? Offering movies online as soon as they hit theaters looks interesting … the movie release schedule (first theaters, then Pay-Per-View, then DVDs, then TV) is shrinking anyway.
