The Movies dated

So, um, does that make this Black & White/Movies day?

The Movies has gone gold and will be released across Europe on November 11th, according to publisher Activision. It's out in the US three days prior to that on the 8th. Look for it on PC, PS2, Xbox and Cube. And, no, we're not doing a "That's a wrap" joke.

As you know, The Movies is another brainchild of renowned British developer Peter Molyneux and his Lionhead development studio, and sees the player building up a Hollywood empire from scratch, dabbling in talent-spotting and even direction along the way. Perfect if you've ever wanted to slap the little prima donnas around a bit.

It's been in development for a pretty long time, and has some typically ambitious ideas. You can read more about it in our ages-old preview, and we'll have a review up as we draw closer to the game's release date. Or premiere or whatever you want to pun it.

In the meantime, today also sees the European release of Molyneux's Black & White 2. Hopefully The Movies has done a better job of colouring its ideas.
