The Movies Screenshots

Activision has released two new screenshots from its Lionhead Studios developed strategy title The Movies. The first screen shows a sequence where two individuals are holding-up a lizard like creature, while the second shot showcases what seems to be the creation of a movie set. The game, which is schedule to ship this Fall, will be available for the PC, PlayStation 2, GameCube and Xbox.

Here’s a synopsis of the game:

Imagine you could make any movie you wanted to. Imagine you could pluck someone from obscurity and turn them into a superstar. Imagine you had control of an entire movie studio, competing with other studios to create box office hits and predicting what audiences want–from epic action films to campy B-movies.

With The Movies, you can make it big in Hollywood by building the ultimate movie studio and shooting the ultimate picture. Choose a script and turn it into a major release. Pick or create actors and locations. Control budgets, build sets, settle into the director’s chair and film a hit.

Just as you can create or modify unique films, you can create or modify actors, customizing their look and renaming them to resemble anyone you wish. You can even replicate every movie star currently in Hollywood and remake all your favorite films with them. Anything you’ve ever read about Hollywood–from starlet scandals to broken box office records–is right here in The Movies.
