Movie Websites Launches for March 12 - March 18
March 19th, 2004
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 the winner for the week, Connie and Carla - Official Site. If you know of any new movie websites not on this list feel free to e-mail me with the details.
Current Content: There's a new Wellspring site, which is very similar to all Wellspring sites. This is too bad, because the old site had more style.
Current Content: No updates since the site first launched, not even the trailer. And the movie opens tomorrow. The trailer is available online, just not on the site.
Current Content: Just a placeholder site with just the name as its only piece of content.
Connie and Carla
Current Content: The first of the new flash sites this week. Every site should have a hook and for this site it's a Sing-a-Long. Besides the sin-a-long the usual features are all there, synopsis, trailer, etc. There are also a few extras like, The 'Is Your Man a Metro-Sexual' Quiz and 'Your Drag Queen Stage Name, (Jean Harlot.) Add in the audio clips and it’s a very well done site with several features still marked coming soon, (soundtrack, Ms. Match, Drag Queen Dress Up, History's A Drag, E-Cards and Movie Clips.) With all this it's the winner of the lyrical Weekly Website Award.
Dawn of the Dead
Current Content: There have been no changes since the flash site went live, but it was an award-winning site so no real changes were needed.
Current Content: E-Cards were added to the site.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Current Content: The crew bios were added, but the four Memory Sequences (video clips) are still marked coming soon. The non-Flash site has a music player with clips from the soundtrack.
Current Content: A new trailer and three more behind the scene clips were added. This site has been slowly building for months now, and now as the release date nears the updates are coming much more frequently.
Home on the Range
Current Content: Three more games were added, leaving just one game and the screen saver marked coming soon.
Current Content: Typical IFC site with less content than usual.
Current Content: The clips were added, but it's just the TV Spot and the Making Of featurette.
Current Content: A placeholder site with no real content.
Current Content: Just the synopsis and the trailer.
Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed
Current Content: The section on the soundtrack was added, which includes two songs, one video and links to all the bands on the soundtrack. Also added were the synopsis, cast and crew bios and production note.
Shaun of the Dead
Current Contact: The flash site launched and the trapped in a pub theme is well done. The site also has the usual features, synopsis, trailer, cast, crew and character bios, etc. There are also two features marked coming soon information on the soundtrack and a game. The site could use more sound though but it is unlikely it will be added.
Current Content: Another webisode was added, this one about J.K. Simmons playing J. Jonah Jameson.
Current Content: The behind the scene featurette was added just in time for tomorrow's release.
Current Content: The IPIX were added, almost. I got a configuration error when I tried to look at them. Hopefully that will be fixed shortly.
United States of Leland
Current Content: The flash site launched this week. It has all the usual features most of which was on the placeholder site, plus a little animation but no sound.
Current Content: The production note and cast and crew bios were added to the site.
Current Content: Typical Sony placeholder site with just the synopsis and the trailer.
The Whole Ten Yards
Current Content: Placeholder site with just the synopsis and the trailer. The gallery and the downloads section are marked coming soon.
