What will happen to the Blinkumentary? Will it be one of those things released decades from now or maybe some pieces of it used for another documentary covering blinks history in the future? Will it ever see the light of day?

Image

According to various sources it was scrapped completely in 2012. Nothing has been heard since late 2012 from the many twitter/media accounts created for the Blinkumentary hype. The http://www.handsomerandsome.com website has been silent as well for all that time. This is the last tweet/message ever to be sent out from the Blinkumentary twitter/social media accounts:
We are waiting just like you guys for the release date of the film. We will let you know when we get approval for release!

The whole thing seemed to be going great (according to Haven & Matt) up until the point the band and some "Higher-Ups" did a final screening of the documentary. After which the whole hype machine sort of broke down, coming to a screeching halt in 2012. In an interview from more than a year ago, Tom & Mark confirmed the fate of the documentary saying it was:
A “work in progress” and that it felt outdated and misrepresenting of the band by the time that it was finished.

And adding that:
There is talk of making possible changes, but that is all in the air as of now.

What do you guys think? Is there any chance we will ever see this thing or even parts of it? I have to say i would really like to see this thing. Maybe leaked, even if it sucks and is misleading. What do you think?

This bums me out so much.

Theres got to be more to the story than what we know. These guys work on this thing for 3 years and then its just dead in the water with no update from them ever again? And I'm just not buying the whole "it feels outdated". Its a documentary following the 2009 reunion tour. It's supposed to feel 2009.

I don't know. Just with how hush hush it all went I don't think it will ever see the light of day unfortunately. Such a waste. SO much great footage and potential all down the drain.

I was actually just thinking about the Blinkumentary for the first time in forever the other day. Unfortunately, I'm pretty it's 100% scrapped, which sucks because I was soooo excited for it :(

I'm with Reed though, there has to be more to the story that they haven't said yet.

Agreed, i remember Mark saying it was okay/decent in an interview some time ago but Tom disagreeing. I wonder if it was mostly Tom that pulled the plug on the whole project?

Sucks though, i bet the footage is epic.

This will never see the light of day

I think with Tom leaving the band, the 0.001% chance this had of one day surfacing was killed.
