Movie Websites Launches for September 3 - September 9

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 A Dirty Shame - 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: More director's journal entries were added, as was a High-Res image gallery. And we're talking 300 dpi and nearly 5 megs on average. Nice.

Current Content: This site doesn't work with Mozilla so I have to use Internet Explorer to view it. I hate Internet Explorer. It's a good site with a high degree of interactivity, but is perhaps a little light on content.

Current Content: Still no Buzz despite opening tomorrow.

Christmas with the Kranks
Current Content: A new trailer was added to the site. It's a about as effective as the last trailer.

Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo
Current Content: Just a short animated intro.

A Dirty Shame
Current Content: The flash site launched this past week. It has all the usual information, synopsis, cast and crew bios, trailer, image gallery, plus a few of extras. Extras like an informative interview with John Waters and a flipbook featuring Selma Blair (a.k.a. Caprice Stickles, a.k.a. Ursula Udders) and her performance. The most extensive feature is the Film, Fetishes and More, which talks about the inspiration for the film, stars, music and of course, sex. The site could use a bit more sound in the form of effects or audio clips, but at least you can listen to one of the songs from the soundtrack. There are even a few video clips still marked coming soon, as with that the site wins the debauched Weekly Website Awards.

Current Content: Nothing, but the trailer is marked coming soon.

Current Content: Simple site without sound or animation. It does all the usual features including a rather long section for cast and crew bios.

First Daughter
Current Content: The flash site launched this week, and the format is really well done. It has enough animation, sound effects, audio clips and even clips from three different songs for background music. However, it is a little light on content with just the synopsis, trailer and image gallery.

Hotel Rwanda
Current Content: Just the synopsis, a few pictures and the screening times.

I Huckabees
Current Content: The site is now just a redirect to the trailer site.

I Am David
Current Content: Just the trailer so far.

It's All About Love
Current Content: Standard Strand Releasing movie website with just the synopsis and the release dates.

Kung Fu Hustle
Current Content: Just the teaser trailer and the synopsis for now. But the site has plenty of sound and animation for its limited content, so that's a good sign for future updates.

The Machinist
Current Content: The trailer has been added.

National Lampoon's Gold Diggers
Current Content: The last three video clips were added to the site.

Le Petite Lili
Current Content: Standard First Run Features website.

Polar Express
Current Content: The flash site launched this week, sort of. It's mostly the old content with a new format and plenty of features marked coming soon. Cast and crew, production notes, soundtrack, TV spots and about half the downloads and special features sections. The site could use more sound and animation.

Raise Your Voice
Current Content: No updates to the site this week, but the Raise Your Voice Player went live. Right now it just has some behind the scenes featurette, the music video for Hilary Duff's latest single, Fly, and an additional image gallery.

Current Content: The site has the synopsis, cast and crew bios, image galley, (with really, really high res images), and quotes from reviews.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse
Current Content: Been a while since the site was last updated.

September Tapes
Current Content: This site has all the usual features, synopsis, trailer, cast and crew bios, etc. It also has a bit of sound and animation.

Shark Tale
Current Content: A couple of games were added to the site, a mixing table and a coloring book.

Silent Waters
Current Content: Standard First Run Features website.

Straight Jacket
Current Content: The background music best feature of this site but the site also has a very short synopsis, cast and crew bios, image gallery, screening dates and press.

Team America
Current Content: Another TV Spot was added to the site.

Current Content: The movie comes out in theatres tomorrow and on DVD on Tuesday, but the last section of the site is still marked coming soon, (or Accessible Information - Pending to be more accurate.)

When Will I Be Loved
Current Content: Standard IFC Films movie website with the synopsis, cast and crew bios, image gallery and trailer.
