Movie Website Updates for January 27 - February 2

February 2nd, 2006

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. It was another slow week with nothing really grabbing my attention and nothing award-winning, (although there are a couple of sites that show promise). Hopefully some of the summer blockbusters will start launching flash sites so this slump can end.

American Dreamz - Official Site
The placeholder site was redesigned to give it a little more personality, but there was no new content.

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

Basic Instinct 2 - Official Site
Nothing to see here.

Clerks 2: The Passion of the Clerks - Official Site
Another clip, this time with Jason Mewes talking about doing his own stunts.

The Da Vinci Code - Official Site
There was a slight redesign and a couple of games were added to the site. I'm not good at anagrams, but I was able to get my time of the Symbol game down to 30 seconds.

Dave Chappelle's Block Party - Official Site
Just a list of people appearing in the movie.

Duck Season - Official Site
Simple site with all the usual features, including a Red Band trailer, but not much the in way of extras. Couple of notes, I must really be jaded cause I can't figure out why the trailer was restricted. Secondly, I really like the music from the trailer, it's catchy.

Friends with Money - Official Site
The trailer was added to the placeholder site, but it didn't really sell the film well. I'm still looking forward to the movie, mainly for the cast, but I'm not as enthusiastic as I was before I saw the trailer.

A Good Woman - Official Site
There's just the synopsis, image gallery and the trailer. That's not much for a movie that opens tomorrow.

Joyeux Noel (Merry Christmas) - Official Site
Just the image gallery and the press kit so far.

Miami Vice - Official Site
An image gallery was added this week that contains almost three images. Wow.

The Notorious Bettie Page - Official Site
Just the trailer so far, but I am intrigued. It's also interesting to see what was shocking a few decades ago now seems quaint.

The Omen - Official Site
Just the teaser trailer so far, which was far too much teaser and not enough trailer for me.

Running Scared - Official Site
A game was added to the site and it's really good compared to most website games. However, it seems to have some problems with load times cause it hung on me a few times. Also, in order to play the full game you have to give more information than I'm willing to over the internet.

Scary Movie 4 - Official Site
Just the trailer so far. On a side note, this better be the last movie in this franchise.

Something New - Official Site
Three clips were added just in time for tomorrow's opening. I'm little more hopeful that the film will have more substance than the typical romantic comedy.

Tamara - Official Site
Not much as changed since the site was first on this list, but for the rated and unrated trailers were added.

The Tenants - Official Site
This site has all the usual features, but not enough style to set it apart.

V For Vendetta - Official Site
There's a announcement for the new trailer that should be online on Sunday. I like the way they describe the trailer just cause it's different.

When a Stranger Calls - Official Site
No changes in a while.

The World's Fastest Indian - Official Site
There were a few video clips added to the site, including interviews and a montage of clips filmed at the premiere.

Yesterday Was a Lie - Official Site
Five video clips were added to the site. These interviews deal with the film, the actors, even the move from film to digital medium. Very interesting to watch and sells the film well.
