Warner Bros. Digital Distribution (WBDD) have announced the launch of ‘App Editions’ of the Chris Nolan-directed feature films “Inception” and “The Dark Knight” for use on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
These versions provide a “fully-loaded, connected viewing experience that gives consumers the first five minutes of a feature film and a portion of bonus content that can include games, trivia, soundtracks and soundboards”.
The entire feature can then be “unlocked via an in-app purchase, which enables downloading and unlimited streaming, as well as access to the entire array of bonus content available within the App”.
Now available in over 30 territories via iTunes, these versions provide consumers with movie subtitles in 34 languages ranging from Arabic to Ukrainian (streamed via WiFi) along with a feed of social networking chatter directly related to the movie in real-time.
Later this year, Warner Bros. will release a full slate of App Editions including new release and catalog films.
