Is this how Hollywood is going to release new movies, music and video games? I hope so... because there is a lot of potential here.
Disney's launched an iPhone App for it's new film Bolt (which opens tomorrow). It launched a couple weeks prior to the movie's release. It's free, of course, as it's a marketing / brand awareness play. The App features:
- high quality trailers - an interactive game based on the accelerometer - high scores and viral score sharing
Not exactly an App I would use - but I am not the target audience. I do however think that this is a brilliant marketing move and look forward to other studios / marketers doing the same.
