Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has officially debuted their Second Screen App for The Amazing Spider-Man exclusively on the Sony Tablet S, Sony Xperia Tablet S and Apple iPad.
The Second Screen App, which syncs only with the Blu-ray Disc, offers an additional movie-watching experience, giving users behind-the-scenes access into the world of Spider-Man as the film plays. Additionally, the App will unlock new content each week with all content available by the November 9th release of The Amazing Spider-Man on Blu-ray.
By accessing the Second Screen App, users can engage with key elements from the film while watching it on Blu-ray. The App includes two interactive modes – Timeline and Production – both featuring extensive content from the set such as interviews with the cast and filmmakers, featurettes on the making of the film, behind-the-scenes photos, storyboards, concept art, pre-visualization sequences, stunt rehearsals, trivia, factoids and more.
- In Timeline Mode, the App syncs with the Blu-ray Disc, allowing scene-specific trivia, featurettes, storyboards, interviews, and other content to scroll across your tablet in time with the movie. - In Production Mode, users can explore even more content that goes deeper into the making of the film by diving into the various areas of the production process including Filmmakers, Story, Design, Cast, Location and Stunts, among others. And when the App syncs with the Blu-ray Disc through a connected player, users can “sling” select content from the Sony Tablet or iPad to the television screen to watch it in full HD, for a greater viewing experience.
In addition, users can also update their Facebook and Twitter pages and share their viewing experience by posting trivia and facts directly from the App.
