The company's plan is to have 500GB USB drives with twenty movies each preloaded onto them. Users will pay $9.99 up to $14.99 each for the unlock codes in order to access and watch the movies.

Other films available for purchase on these first USB drives is said to include such films as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Nacho Libre, GI Joe, The Hunt for Red October, Coach Carter, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius , and The Love Guru.

Many technology observers are skeptical about films utilizing USB technology, concerned that this innovation may just become another example of crapware, unuseful or annoying software thats packaged inside other software that you dont want or coimes preinstalled.
