Engaging Movie Experiences on WP7…So Hot Right Now.

Paramount Pictures announced today that they’re bringing enhanced movie apps to Windows Phone 7.  Paramount is releasing 10 full movies which include all the bonus content from a DVD plus stuff you can’t get on a disc like trivia by ‘Scene It?’.  This is cool for a couple of reasons.  First, I’m a huge fan of Zoolander (in case you couldn’t tell from this post’s title Smile) and it’s one of the movies they’re releasing.  Second, this was all done leveraging the power of Silverlight on WP7.

We’re continuing to see a fantastic array of rich, interactive experiences built for Windows Phone using Silverlight.  Many developers also choose for their app to appear alongside the user’s media by integrating with the device’s Music & Video hub.  Want to learn more?  Check out the Getting Started resources for Silverlight on Windows Phone.
