In a sign of things to come for Hollywood, movies viewers will have an exclusive opportunity to see Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh's Bubble, on the same day the movie opens in theaters. Focusing on three workers in a small town doll factory whose lives are overturned when a murder occurs, Bubble will appear on HDNet Movies twice on opening night, January 27 at 9:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. est.

Bubble is the first of six films Soderbergh is directing for HDNet Films that will be shot in high-definition and released simultaneously in theaters, on DVD and on HDNet Movies. Mark Cuban, co-founder of HDNet, and his partner Todd Wagner are experimenting with this day-and-date model utilizing various media properties they own, with the goal of giving the consumer a choice of how, when and where to see a movie.

"Through this partnership with such an incredibly talented and creative director as Soderbergh, we can reward HDNet Movies subscribers with
great original movies on the same day they open in theaters," said Cuban.

In this unique cinematic experiment, acclaimed director Soderbergh brings this tragic story to life with startling realism. A bizarre love triangle is born at a doll factory in a small Midwestern town. Lonely and isolated, long time employees Martha and Kyle have become friends by default in spite of their drastic age difference. Their dynamic is upset by the arrival of a new worker: young, attractive, single mother Rose. As Martha grows increasingly wary about Rose's dubious character, she discovers Kyle and Rose developing a relationship of their own. When a murder investigation begins, it calls into question our established assumptions about these characters and life in their small town.
