Three Kings star Mark Wahlberg and director David O. Russell will be featured in the first ever synchronized online chat and screening of a major feature film on DVD. The screening/chat is scheduled for August 25 at 6 p.m. PST.
To participate, users need a computer equipped with a DVD-ROM drive, the Three Kings DVD and an Internet connection. A cue delivered by Warner Home Video via the Internet will trigger the movie to begin at the same time for all users on their computer.
Users will then view the movie at DVD quality in a "virtual theater" and will be able to ask Wahlberg and Russell questions as everyone watches the movie together. Users without a DVD-ROM computer will be able to participate in the chat only.
Autographed DVDs of the Three Kings will also be given away as prizes during the event. Users can register by going to "Online Events" in their DVD-ROM’s menu, at Mark Wahlberg’s web site www.markwahlberg.com, or through www.entertaindom.com.
