(Newser) – Here's a dream come true for couch potatoes: You're not going to have to stop watching this movie for an entire month when it is ultimately released. Ambiancé, by Swedish director Anders Weberg, will be a full 720-hour film to be screened only once, starting on New Year's Eve in the year 2020, on every continent simultaneously, and then destroyed, reports The Verge. The filmmaker, who says this movie will be his last, has just released a "teaser" on Vimeo that is a "short" 72 minutes long, or roughly the length of a normal film.

The "short trailer," due out in two years, will be 7 hours and 20 minutes long (notice a theme?), reports Smithsonian magazine. The final trailer, out in 2018, will be 72 hours long. The film, a "surreal dream-like journey beyond places," according to the film's site, is "a sort of memoir" that gives "an abstract nonlinear narrative summary of the artist's time spent with the moving image." And it's expected to set the record as the longest film ever made. The teaser is only available until July 20. (Meanwhile, it's not too late to catch part of the world's longest concert.)

I hear the 720 hour version is riveting - as in having a rivet driven into your head slowly, very slowly
