Curiously, the directorial debut of Diablo Cody is headed right to TV. You'll be able to catch Paradise on Thursday night, according to Cody herself.
My movie PARADISE premieres on @DIRECTV on August 8, so plan on staying in next Thursday w/ pizza & indie…

Probably more a symptom of a changing industry than confirmation of the bad smells created by the film's evil poster, right?
Well, I hope so. And this trailer isn't anything like awful at all. And the script was good – far better than this promo lets on. And Cody is smart. And there is a theatrical release coming in October.
Now, I don't want to give away too much, but I'm not sure I agree with everything this film says. But that's not the point. From reading the script, I certainly enjoyed the way it said it.
