Movie Website Updates for December 2 - December 8, 2006

December 9th, 2006

Good week for websites with a number of candidates for the top spot. In the end I went with Ghost Rider - Official Site, but there's a few others here that will undoubtedly win in the coming weeks.

Apocalypto - Official Site
All the basics are here, (synopsis, production notes, cast & crew bios, image gallery, and trailer), and there are also several video clips and a section on the Mayan culture to check out.

The Astronaut Farmer - Official Site
All of the regular features are here with the bios marked coming soon.

Balls of Fury - Non-Official Site
Not the official site, but a fan site that was sent my way. So far it just has the trailer, but there's a lot of promise.

Because I Said So - Official Site
New look to the placeholder site, but no new content.

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon - Official Site
No real content at the moment.

Black Christmas - Official Site
The cast bios were added to the site as was a clip from the movie. It appears edited to remove some of the violence, or the movie doesn't really earn that R-rating.

The Blood Diamond - Official Site
All the usual features are here, as well as a behind-the-scene featurette. There is also a lot of information on Blood Diamonds.

Blood and Chocolate - Official Site
Just a link to the trailer so far. Unfortunately, I can't see the trailer because I'm not American. Hopefully it will be on the site by next week.

Catch & Release - Official Site
The site is online, finally. I was starting to think the movie was dead. It's a very long site with a lot to explore. The usual features are here, (with production notes marked coming soon), and a lot of video clips hidden throughout the site. There are 8 clips from the movie and 5 interview clips. Add in the soundtrack, which is marked coming soon, and this is a strong site.

Charlotte's Web - Official Site
Another animal was added to the barn leaving just Charlotte.

Epic Movie - Official Site
Just the synopsis, image gallery, and trailer, which looks even worst than Date Movie.

Eragon - Official Site
The second of three features, Spanning Time, was added this week. It's a lot better than the first giving a ton of background information. My only concern is that this information will be needed to enjoy the movie.

First Snow - Official Site
No real content so far.

Ghost Rider - Official Site
The full site finally launched this week and it's great. Most of the usual features are on the site, (the cast & crew bios are missing but there are character bios in their place). In addition, there are two games, (including the new Hellfire, which is very fun). Also new this week, three more video blog entries including ones on Peter Fonda, the Hidden, and a short poster dissolve. The full site is very well done and combined with the extensive production blog it is the winner of the phantasmal Weekly Website Award.

The Good German - Official Site
Making Of was added to the site, but they are production notes, and not a video clip like I was expecting.

The Good Shephard - Official Site
Cast & crew bios and the production were added this week.

Happily N'Ever After - Official Site
The site is up and it has all the usual features for an animated site, synopsis, cast & crew, (bios marked coming soon), and trailer. There are also two games with two more marked coming soon.

His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass - Official Site
Not much information on the movie, but quite a bit of background information on the world.

The Hitcher - Official Site
You can now share hitchhiking horror stories.

The Holiday - Official Site
There are new clips for each character and a trailer maker.

Hot Fuzz - Official Site
The full trailer is up, and it is awesome. Now I'm a huge fan of Shaun of the Dead so my opinion might not be entirely unbiased here, but this could be the funniest trailer I've seen for any movie coming out in 2007.

Mimzy - Official Site
Just the trailer so far, which you can download. I like being able to download the trailer so I don't have to waste bandwidth every time I want to see it.

Miss Potter - Official Site
All the usual features are here, (minus the image gallery), but it still feels like a placeholder site.

Music and Lyrics - Official Site
The trailer was added to the site, or to be more accurate, a link to the trailer. I expect it to be on the site next week.

The Reaping - Official Site
There's a new trailer that makes you go through an age verification to see it. I was only able to see the green trailer banner, but I don't know if that's cause I'm Canadian and can't be verified with this system or if there's just the green banner trailer.

Screamers - Official Site
All the usual features for a documentary site are here and they include a rather long clip. Unfortunately, the size of the clip is rather small and I had trouble reading the subtitles.

Trade - Official Site
Just the trailer so far.

Unaccompanied Minors - Official Site
The soundtrack was added to the site.

Venus - Official Site
The full site is up and has all of the usual features. Also, there's a section on Peter O'Toole that is marked coming soon.
