Movie Website Updates for June 3 - June 9, 2007

June 9th, 2007

There are a lot of movies on this week's list, but many have just the synopsis, image gallery, and the trailer, and many don't even have that. There were very few that stood out, but at least Speed Racer - Official Site got off to a great start. Perhaps it will win the award before it hits theaters.

12:08 East of Bucharest - Official Site
Just the synopsis and the trailer.

30 Days of Night - Official Site
Just the trailer, which is offsite.

1408 - Official Site
The cast & crew bios were added to the site, as were four TV spots.

American Gangster - Official Site
Just the synopsis, image gallery, and the trailer so far.

Becoming Jane - Official Site
Just the synopsis and the trailer.

El Cantante - Official Site
New look, but no real new information.

Death at a Funeral - Official Site
All the usual features are here, synopsis, bios, production notes, image gallery, but it is the trailer that sell the movie.

Enchanted - Official Site
Just the synopsis and the trailer.

Evan Almighty - Official Site
The rest of the Ark was added this week, including several clips of Steve Carell... I'm not sure what he's doing. They call it dancing, but I'm unconvinced. In addition, the bios were finally added.

Halloween - Official Site
Just the trailer, which is only available between 9:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. It's really not worth the wait and is, quite frankly, rather boring. I was wondering why a movie called Halloween is coming out in late August, and now I know why.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Official Site
There's a new section where you can upload, view, and rate drawings of dearth eater masks.

He Was a Quiet Man - Official Site
The site was completely redesigned this week, but it doesn't have the same strong sense of style. Fortunately the old site is still there and is linked to on the new site.

Hostel: Part II - Official Site
I hate this site. That crying they use for background sound drives me nuts and that's all I'm going to say.

Hot Rod - Official Site
The site is up, but any interest I had in the movie was killed by that trailer. There's also a game on the site and a link to Stuntman Forever, neither of which helped sell the movie.

How She Move - Official Site
MySpace. Ick. However, there is a contest you can enter to appear in the movie.

I Am Legend - Official Site
Nothing. But the trailer can be found at Apple.com.

The Kite Runner - Official Site
Nothing.

Kung Fu Panda - Official Site
A new look to the placeholder site, but no new content.

My Bollywood Bride - Official Site
Just the synopsis, bios, and some information on screenings. On the other hand, it does have more style than most sites.

Nancy Drew - Official Site
Emma's blog is online.

Ocean 13 - Official Site
All of the usual features are here, plus a page for each character. However, while there's a lot of pages, they are mostly dead space; had there been more animation here, or even a clip or two, then it would have been a great site. Personally, I was expecting more.

Rocket Science - Official Site
New look, but still no content.

Sicko - Official Site
Three TV spots were added to the site this week.

Sleuth - Official Site
Nothing.

Speed Racer - Official Site
As promised, there was an update this week, however, it was much larger than expected. Not only were the regular features added, (synopsis, bios, image gallery), but also a massive amounts of video clips were put up. These come from the recent press conference, and you can check out the transcript, the clips, or download the audio. Had the site been more stylish, it could have been a contender for the Weekly Website Award.

Stardust - Official Site
The game was added and so was the first resident of Stormhold.

Steel Toes - Official Site
Just the basics without any real sense of style.

Surf's Up - Official Site
The clips were added to this award-winning site.

The Ten - Official Site
The trailer is online. It looks funny, but it doesn't appear to have much in the way of mainstream appeal.

The Transformers - Official Site
Images of the Autobots and Decepticons were added to the site this week.

La Vie en Rose - Official Site
No real changes in a while. Overall it is a good site, but not an award-worthy site.

War - Official Site
New look, but no new content.

You're Gonna Miss Me - Official Site
Just the synopsis and the trailer on the site, and a link to an interview with the director.
