Movie Website Updates for September 23 - September 29

September 29th, 2005

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. Here the list of this week's releases, a couple of new sites and few updates, including this week's winner, The Greatest Game Ever Played - Official Site.

39 Pounds of Love
This site has a lot more style than most documentary sites with plenty of sound and animation.

No real changes since the flash site first launched. It's a bad site, but it doesn't stand out enough to really sell the film.

Clerk 2: The Passion of the Clerks
The first entry in the video journal is on the site and it's something you have to see for yourself.

There is a request for questions for am upcoming Q&A session.

The Road Trip section was added, but it's just a contest.

The Family Stone
Just the synopsis and trailer so far, neither of which left me too enthusiastic about the film.

Far Side of the Moon
A lot of this site is in French, (the trailer and the sound clips) so that lessened the impact it had on me. Even so, the site is well done with a few unusual features.

Forty Shades of Blue
Not much has changed since the flash site first launched.

Going Shopping
The site has all the usual features, but doesn't have a very polished feel.

The Greatest Game Ever Played
The movie opens tomorrow but way too much of the site is still marked coming soon. The games, timeline and clips were added leaving cast & crew bios, production notes, behind the scenes, etc. marked coming soon. I just checked back and a good thing too as most of the features were added. The site now has all of the regular features, (synopsis, cast & crew bios, production notes, image gallery and trailer) as well as extras like behind-the-scene clips, timeline of great sports moments and even a couple of games. It's a great site, but its biggest flaw is it doesn't make the film seem any more interesting than any other Golf movie. But the site is still worthy of the hollowed Weekly Website Award.

In Her Shoes
Four clips were added to the site. I can't say they made me want to watch the movie any more or any less, but then again, I'm not part of their target demographic.

In the Mix
Just the trailer so far, but I'm far from sold on the movie. There are just too many cliches the film has to avoid to succeed.

Into the Blue
Not much has changed since the site won the weekly award.

Kids in America
The rest of the site underwent the same redesign that the placeholder site underwent last week.

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang
The flash site launched this weekend and it has a lot of style, unfortunately, that style seems to be borrowed from Waiting...'s Official Site. Had the two sites not been so similar, this site would have won the weekly website award.

The Legend of Zorro
The game was added to the site and it is very much like the game on the Elektra and Fantastic Four sites only this time you can destroy objects and find knives, health boosts, etc. Very fun.

Little Manhattan
No changes since the site first launched. I assume there will be plenty more added between now and the film's wide release, whenever that may be.

I do believe they added some images to the site. Still no word on a release date, and it might just go straight to DVD, which would be a shame.

All the features marked coming soon last week are now on the site, (cast bios, image gallery, and trailer).

Match Point
Just the trailer so far, but it certainly doesn't look like your typical Woody Allen film.

Not much has changed since the site was last on the list.

Just the press release announcing the name of the film.

Nanny McPhee
The flash site launched this week and it has all the usual features, (synopsis, cast & crew bios, image gallery and the trailer). There are a couple of extras, mostly marked coming soon, including three games and videos.

Typical placeholder site with just the synopsis, image gallery and the trailer.

The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio
Still just the synopsis and the trailer.

The Ringer
There's a new trailer up, but you have to surf over to to see it. After seeing the full trailer I'm confident to predict that this will be one of those movies that you are embarrassed to admit you laughed at, but you will.

Screen Door Jesus
There are a lot of video clips on this site including several interviews, but overall it doesn't have a very professional feel.

The server is getting pounded today, I don't know if it will survive. If it does die, head over here for a interview featurette with the cast and crew. Or head over here for an even longer feature. If the server doesn't die, definitely check out the site as it's the best one on this week's list.

The trailer was added to the placeholder site.

Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny
Another episode of the Hell O'clock News was added to the site and if the early marketing campaign is any indication, this will not be a normal movie.

Three Days of Rain
No real changes since the site first launched.

Another location was added to the site and with it another clip. Also, the food fight game is online.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Huge update this week with the style completely redone. Each section starts with a short clip and there are three more in the video section, but the Activities and Behind the Scenes sections are still marked coming soon.

The War Within
Just the synopsis, cast & crew list, trailer and a text based interview.

The Weather Man
Four clips were added to the site, and you can also listen to the director talk about them.
