The Lumia920 Lumia 900 has been spotted in the trailer for an upcoming movie - Olympus Has Fallen. Featured at the 2:09 marker, the white Windows Phone looks massive in the hands of a female actress in a clean environment. Nokia has kicked off an intensive Lumia marketing campaign to promote its fairly expansive family of Windows Phones in supported markets.

Hey, who you calling cheap?

The Canyons (IMdB) is a new film coming out in 2013 from writer Brett Easton Ellis (American Psycho), long-time director Paul Schrader (American Gigolo, Affliction) and stars Lindsey Lohan. The new trailer is a spoof off of 1970’s grindhouse, low budget films, which is sort of interesting but of course what caught our eye is the Windows Phone.

Sure, product placements are a dime a dozen but it’s still kind of neat to see what looks to be a Lumia 710 (?) used for a key scene in the movie.  Exposure is exposure. Full trailer is after the break. Thanks, HikiSpray, for the tip

Paramount today announced an interesting twist to movie watching on your Windows Phone: Silverlight Enhanced movies. Fetching for $9.99 and starting with School of Rock, you can download the application/movie combo from the Marketplace allowing you to watch and interact with the movie.

The best way to describe this is a DVD menu + extras on your mobile using the power of Silverlight. The features include the ability to

...create custom clips, view the movie with pop-up trivia powered by 'Scene It?', and 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.

Other movies coming down the line include Zoolander, Waiting for Superman and GI Joe: the rise of Cobra. Not exactly our favorite titles, except for Zoolander, but hey it's a start. Normally, our lame-meters are going off with this kind of thing but dare we say, this might work if they get the right titles (and maybe lower the price)?

Head here to download it. Remember, $9.99 and no trial (obviously).

First look: IMDB on Windows Phone 7

One of the surprises today was the inclusion of the popular movie site IMDB.com. The standalone app is extremly fast, smooth and chalk full of movie info goodness.

Here are a couple of shots of that app in action after the break. More to come later!
