Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (directed by newcomer Ned Benson) had a screening unlike anything seen before.
The film - starring James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain - tells the story of a married couple whose relationship disintegrate.
The 'catch' with the film's screening though, was that there were two different cuts of shown back-to-back. Him centered on the story from McAvoy's point-of-view while Her centered on Chastain's.
The Weinstein Company picked up the rights to release the film on September 26th this year, and have now announced the film will actually have three different cuts released.
The main, wide release will be termed Them, which is a combination of the two points-of-view while the two other cuts - Him and Her - will get separate, limited releases as well.
While I think something like this is unique to see in terms of filmmaking, I can't imagine someone paying to see essentailly the same film three times, even though each is technically different.
Whatever the case may be, it'll definitely be on my radar to check out come this fall, depending on whichever cut I actually see.
