Columbia Pictures Releases Trailer for The Bounty Hunter on Betacam, Really, Really Doesn't Want You to See It

Posted By on Tue, Dec 29, 2009 at 4:33 PM

Just arrived here at the RFT, a curious betacam videotape for a new Jennifer Aniston vehicle that leaves one to wonder how in these final days of 2009 we are supposed to watch it.

The IMDB plot synopsis for Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler's upcoming movie The Bounty Hunter, goes like this:
A bounty hunter (Butler) learns that his next target is his ex-wife (Aniston), a reporter working on a murder cover-up. Soon after their reunion, the always-at-odds duo find themselves on a run-for-their-lives adventure to Las Vegas.
But we wouldn't know that by watching the promotional trailer we received, because it comes on an obsolete piece of technology. Yes, our Columbia Pictures copy of the trailer comes on Betacam videotape. There's a Betamax player selling in Florissant for $100, but is seeing this trailer really worth that much?

Maybe Columbia Pictures just really doesn't want people to see another one of her movies.

But if you're interested in owning this sweet paper weight, post in the comments why you need it in your life and we'll send it to you.
