    My first own thread! :) Had to tell you that I just preordered Unrest on iTunes!

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/unrest/id1265409535?ign-mpt=uo=4

    Expected release date is October 10, 2017. (Not sure for which countries though, because my preorder says expected release date for Germany is October 31, 2017).

    Subtitles are available in French, Spanish and German (plus English for sound-sensitive/hard of hearing people). :globe: That's so awesome, otherwise I couldn't show it to my family!

    I read somewhere that other streaming services will follow, so if you don't have iTunes, there will be more possibilities.

    It's so great this is being made available so quickly! October isn't far away at all!

    Thanks for posting this. I've been sick with a very bad cold/mild flu the past couple of weeks and it totally slipped my mind.

    Unrest is releasing on October 10th - less than a week away - on iTunes!

    So looking forward to seeing it! Had to miss the local screening as it was at the exact same time as my Grandmother’s 100th birthday party (which was probably the only thing besides a crash that could have prevented me from going).

    It's a lot cheaper to see it at Crowborough or Portsmouth!

    Hi @ArgyrosfeniX, Thanks for posting the picture and bumping this thread. I repost your pic as twitter post, so that the clip can be clicked and watched (can't explain it better, hope you and others know what I mean :)).

    Short video (3:48 min) by Jen. She's asking us to preorder on iTunes. The ambitious goal is to get into the charts in the iTunes store (top 10). This would require 2000 preorders until Tuesday. "We want people to see just how many of us are invisible." https://www.facebook.com/unrestfilm/videos/972770979527302/

    Edit: And she said she's coming to the UK in 2 weeks.

    Just noticed that you can also listen to the Unrest soundtrack on iTunes:
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/unrest-original-motion-picture-soundtrack/id1281594851
    Longer preview versions of the tracks here than on Amazon.

    Edit: Recommend reading Bear Mc Creary's blog in addition, that @slysaint posted in another thread. It's simply amazing how much thought, time and sweat went into every track: http://www.bearmccreary.com/#blog/blog/films/unrest/
    Edit 2: Downloaded whole soundtrack, it's beautiful.

    Its starting to sound like a bottomless money pit o_O They were gonna charge my local ME group £200 to watch it so we're all going to the cinema instead :)

    It's £200 to rent it to put on a screening: we are putting it on in a local "theatre" that seats 100, and, together with the hire of the hall, that brings the tickets up to around £3.50. But if just a few of you in your ME group want to watch it, then iTunes is a more appropriate route.

    Yeah thats why we're all going to the cinema to watch it. It'll cost roughly £3.50 a head by using the disabled passes amongst us and we don't need to pay for the screening.

    Ah, a wise move, oh Ms Fury (or may I call you Hell?)!

    Actually we have been quite surprised by the uptake. We've already sold over 40 tickets, and the posters, bits in local papers etc. have yet to hit the streets. We are being very optimistic and seeing whether we can get some staff from the local GP surgeries to attend.

    We've got geography on our side, because the only other showings in the south-east are Canterbury, Brighton and Portsmouth (so far?). We thought we would offer drinks and snacks from the cafe afterwards with a chance to chat one-to-one with members of the group, or to join a small Q&A session in the hall.

    Some days I wonder if we are going to make the hundred sales, and other days I think we will end up with a second showing. Such are the thrill-packed days of life with ME that this counts as excitement.

    So excited if we made it into the top 10 (somehow not able to check it, only get the German charts). :) Does anybody know if international preorders also counted (asked people in the German forums to preorder) or just the US ones?
