Girl_Walks_Into_a_BarLast Friday the movie industry did something it’s never done before, releasing a feature film through the web on YouTube.

on March 11th, Girl Walks Into a Bar , was released in its entirety on the internet thanks to sponsorship by Lexus.

When you think of a free movie, you think of a poor product, a straight-to-DVD movie, but Girl Walks Into a Bar has an all-star cast.

Written and directed by Sebastian Gutierrez (Snakes on a Plane/Gothika), it stars Danny DeVito, Josh Hartnett, and Rosario Dawson among others.

The near hour-and-30-minute movie takes place over one night and is essentially a bunch of short films put together (think Coffee and Cigarettes), but still ties all the characters together.

The main character is Francine Driver, a former cop who poses as an assassin, played by Carla Gugino. She’s goes in search of a 20,000 payment. When she doesn’t get the money, the night ensues and she meets dancers, photographers, ex-cons, gangsters and more.

Whether the film is quality or not, it’s a good sign that the movie industry is starting to realize the advantages of the internet, offering innovate ways to watch cinema. Times have changed and spending money on a trip to the movie theater isn’t on that many people’s minds anymore.

Here is the film, Girl Walks into a Bar:
