10 Paramount titles coming to Marketplace as Silverlight Enhanced Movies

Paramount Digital Entertainment has announced that 10 more of their titles will be coming to the Marketplace and will be exclusive to Windows Phone as part of Silverlight Enhanced Movies. We've seen this before, way back in December when Paramount first started this new media-style,  Aside from just watching the movies, the new Silverlight Enhanced Movies include the ability to bookmark, create and share clips, and search for people and products in the films.  There is even a trivia game which will allow users to share results with each other over social networking sites.

The Paramount films will be available in the U.S., Canada, U.K., France, Italy, Germany and Spain.  Right now you can get Mean Girls and School of Rock for $9.99, and each week a new title will be available.  Keep and eye out for True Grit, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, Waiting For “Superman,” The Last Airbender, Zoolander, Gi Joe: The Rise Of Cobra, Beowulf  and The Italian Job.  An ecclectic mix, for sure.  Hopefully, more will be on the way.

  • I really don't see the point of these things. If I pay more then $1.49 for a movie I want to be able to play it back anywhere, not just on a phone.The only use I see for them is for independent movies like Journeyquest, would be a nice way for them to sell their movies without making deals with Microsoft/Apple/Google.
  • I wouldn't pay $10 for a digital copy either. Still, they do sound cool.
  • won't buy them unless their in 3D, want to see 3D on my phone.maybe that's too much to ask, but $9.99 doesn't make sense when I can rent movies for a $1?
  • Netflix streaming is only $7.99 and i love it. Torrents FREE and i love, Zune Move and TV show purchasing I love it... all 3 options are still cheaper and you get more options.
