Marley, the long-awaited documentary about reggae legend Bob Marley, directed by Kevin Macdonald (Touching The Void), finally hits movie screens April 20. (Could anything be more respectful than having your Bob Marley biopic debut on 4/20?) It also hits computer screens: Marley will be the first movie to be streamed on Facebook simultaneously with its theatrical release, and it will also be available through video on demand that same day. (A portion of the Facebook proceeds will benefit Save The Children.) So problem solved, people worried about properly celebrating 4/20 and watching a first-run movie at the same time! You can pre-order at Milyoni's Social Cinema. [Indiewire]
