Paramount Digital Entertainment, a division of Paramount Pictures, released a new “School of Rock” app in the Windows Phone Marketplace that lets smartphone owners watch the full movie plus menus, bonus features and experiences not available on other mobile platforms.
“School of Rock” is the first of 10 Windows Phone 7 movie apps to be made available — other titles such as the Ben Stiller vehicle “Zoolander,” the action-packed feature film “GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra” and the documentary “Waiting for Superman” will soon be available, with more titles to come.
The new apps were designed using Silverlight multimedia technology, which gives WP7 smartphone owners the ability to create custom clips and view the movie with pop-up trivia powered by the “Scene It?” movie trivia game.
In addition, the Silverlight-powered apps have a Movie Info feature offering users the ability to identify actors, objects, music and places in the movie, while providing rich, contextual information such as bios, descriptions and even maps to the locations.
