In a move that’s surprising as it is unnecessary, Nicolas Cage is starring in a seven-episode VR video series set in the world of the upcoming The Humanity Bureau.
For those not in the know, The Humanity Bureau is a film in which people who can’t pull their weight in society are exiled to a place called New Eden, and it also stars Cage and Sarah Lind. To hype up the movie, developer and publisher One Touch Distribution has released a video series, available on Oculus VR, which according to the description on the Oculus Store, “is a custom themed multi format movie experience app.”
The app includes “The Humanity Bureau VR cinematic experience in 7 episodes, bonus material from behind the scenes and making of, the feature film movie trailers, Standard 2D, Barco Escape formats.” And on Earth Day (April 22), users will receive the upcoming movie (which releases April 6). The three-screen Barco Escape version, specifically, promises to “revolutionize the future of cinema,” which we doubt.
