Xbox Movie Showcase
Now this is exactly the kind of thing I’m looking forward to on my PS3, and it better have it! (Actually, all indications are that it will.) Paramount pictures is going to be offering HD versions of movie trailers for Xbox 360 users to download and view on their HD televisions.
Launching April 12, the Xbox Movie Showcase will feature free, high-definition, downloadable content from MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III, starring Tom Cruise and directed by J.J. Abrams (the creator of LOST and ALIAS), hitting theaters May 5, and NACHO LIBRE, a comedy starring Jack Black and directed by Jared Hess, NAPOLEON DYNAMITE) in theaters June 16.
Sure, it’s only two movies. But it’s a start. Right now I like to go to Apple’s QuickTime site to check out movie trailers in HD. But that’s on my puny little 19″ CRT monitor. I’d much prefer to see movie trailers in glorious HD and 5.1 surround sound on my HT!
