Creative Multimedia released today an expanded, enhanced version of its award-winning CD-ROM movie guide, developed in partnership with Blockbuster Entertainment.
The new Blockbuster Entertainment Guide to Movies & Videos will be sold as a package with Creative Multimedia's newest entertainment CD-ROM title, the Billboard Music Guide, providing consumers the most comprehensive resource for movie and music information.
"Our research shows that a majority of our customers also have a keen interest in music, and vice versa, so it makes sense to bundle these titles together," said Len Jordan, Creative Multimedia's executive vice president of sales and marketing. "Given the impressive growth and potential of the entertainment market worldwide, and the approaching holiday season, we expect an enthusiastic reception for our entertainment CD-ROM package from retailers and consumers alike."
In addition to the 23,000 movie reviews, 5,500 photographs, 10,000 biographies and videographies, 40-plus video clips, 65 years of Academy Award winners, and film genre tours offered in the original version, the new Blockbuster Entertainment Guide to Movies & Videos CD-ROM features:
-- Free monthly updates via the Internet (The update feature in last year's edition cost $3 per month.)
-- A listing of the 50 Great Movies of all time, compiled and reviewed by a nationwide panel of 20 movie critics
-- 11,000 movie reviews from the Time Out Film Guide, mainstay of the London entertainment scene
-- Up-to-date reviews, video clips, and award-winners
-- Recommended movie lists
-- Updated biographies, and complete cast and crew listings
-- The StarLinks trivia game, which challenges the user to make a connection between two actors who seem professionally unrelated by identifying a chain of movies, actors, and directors that leads from one to the other
-- A direct link to Blockbuster Entertainment's Internet website
-- As with the original version, the user can print personalized movie lists from the CD-ROM.
"The Blockbuster Entertainment Guide to Movies & Videos makes it fun and easier than ever before to select a movie that's just right for a particular user," said Eric Thompson, Creative Multimedia product manager. "Moreover, by providing in advance the information needed to make an informed movie viewing decision, this CD-ROM saves the user time and money."
The Blockbuster Entertainment Guide to Movies & Videos is bundled with the Billboard Music Guide in Windows and Macintosh formats at an average purchase price of $39.95. Like other Creative Multimedia titles, this dual CD-ROM set is available everywhere CD-ROMs are sold, including retail outlets and bookstores in the United States and Canada. The movie guide CD-ROM can be purchased individually through Creative Multimedia's website or its toll-free number, 800/262-7668, or Blockbuster video stores nationwide.
