Australian Box-Office Smash Will Debut In U.S. Via Facebook

Tomorrow, When the War Began, which hit number one on the box-office charts in Australia, will make its U.S. debut February 24 simultaneously in theaters, via video on demand, and on Facebook, following an agreement between Freestyle Digital Media and Milyoni.

The film will also be available via iTunes, YouTube, Amazon, and Vudu that same day.

Facebook users who stream the film will have access to Milyoni’s Social Cinema technology, which enables features including watching with friends, commenting, chatting, and answering poll questions and trivia questions.

Milyoni said further details will be available shortly on the Tomorrow, When the War Began Facebook page.

A look at the trailer for the movie — embedded below — along with the fact that the film topped the box office down under makes it look like this flick might become Milyoni’s strongest offering yet on Facebook. Let us know what you think in the comments section.
