‘Marley’ Documentary, As Innovative As The Man Himself

The documentary Marley, focusing on the life of the most famous reggae artist of all time who we lost to cancer in 1981, made an estimated $260,000 at the box office after playing in only 42 theaters following itss release on 4/20.

Besides being available for viewings at local indie theaters nationwide, Magnolia Pictures made a smart move targeting youth –  availability on Facebook  for  $6.99 (a portion of proceeds go to Save The Children) and streaming/on demand platforms.

On iTunes it shot up to the #6 most rented film amidst Blockbuster titles like Contraband and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. On the movie, directed by Oscar-winner Kevin Macdonald (Last King Of Scotland), Ziggy Marley says:

“I think what’s great about the film, is though there’s been a lot of things done on Bob, I think this one will give people a more emotional connection to Bob’s life as a man.” 

“Not just as a reggae legend or a mythical figure, but his life as a man, you know? The struggles he went through.” For Marley showtimes in your area visit MovieTickets.com[Random Fact: Martin Scorsese was originally meant to direct the project in 2008, but it was eventually handed to Jonathan Demme (Silence Of The Lambs) who backed out because of creative differences]
