The Movies: Superstar Edition Coming June 30
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Feral Interactive has announced The Movies: Superstar Edition. The upcoming game package will include Lionhead Studio's The Movies, the Stunts & Effects expansion pack, and a bonus music soundtrack featuring 30 original tracks.

“The Movies has become a blockbuster favorite among Mac gamers and the Stunts & Effects expansion pack added a new range of movie-making magic, which players really appreciate," said Feral Interactive’s David Stephen. “Releasing the two in one box is an attractive double feature, but being able to include Dan Pemberton’s brilliant original music as a bonus, along with new costumes and sets, makes The Movies: Superstar Edition an essential release.”

With The Movies: Superstar Edition, players can have their cake and eat it too as they take complete control of a Hollywood studio, from coming up with an initial idea to filming the action to releasing a finished movie to theaters. Box office numbers, critical reception, and award shows serve as barometers of their success.
This big budget bundle features not only the original game and the Stunts & Effects expansion pack, but also more than 30 original cuts from composer Dan Pemberton’s BAFTA-nominated music. Mimicking a wide range of styles - from silent movie piano ditties to soaring, John Williams-esque orchestral pieces – Pemberton’s music traces a century of cinema history.

Developed by Lionhead Studios®, The Movies: Superstar Edition harkens back to the era of the Hollywood moguls, allowing players to oversee stables of screenwriters, directors, movie stars, and stuntmen. Beginning in the early days of silent film and carrying into today’s special effects-laden epics, the game tracks movie history as players grow their Hollywood studio from fledgling venture to major industry player.

• 1.6 GHz PowerPC or Intel-based Mac
