I went to the Warrington Film Festival 8th April 2006. Lionhead had Stunts and Effects available to play on.
The tycoon past of the game has been improved on. But I played mostly the movie making side of it.
There are a lot of improvements from The Movies game. You now have a free camera. Which can be placed where you like. It can also do sweeping shots between points 1 and 2, which you can choose their position.
There is a blue screen and green screen now. Blue screen allows you to have backdrops including custom made ones. As well as different floor textures. The screen screen has the backdrop options too. But it has a side screen which makes it appear as if it is moving continually. I saw a helicopter that appeared to be flying above a road. I also saw a spaceship that looked as if it went through hyperspace.
There is also a parrelex set, where you can get say a helicopter or more if you desire to fly between buildings.
There are new sets, Jungle, commercial street, sci-fi corridors including no 5, plus several more.
There are new costumes, hairstyles, backdrops, music, scenes.
Advanced movie maker is now easier to use, also the free cam is easy to use, I found it very natural. But if you prefer the pre shot scenes, you can still do that too.
There is a minature city, which has car chase scenes, helicopter and spaceship scenes. Like a mothership hovering above the city.
From the perspective of making movies with Stunts and Effects, your creative options are now almost limitless. What I saw just blew me away. I can not wait for this to be released, it is totally awesome. You can make your own movies, that can actually look very good.
I was the second person to play the game, and the first person to use the free cam. Whatever you here about this game, can not do justice to how good it actually is.
This is the best game I have ever played, by far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! 6 April 2006
The first expansion pack from Lionhead Studios for the underappreciated, 2005 title: The Movies.
This time around you'll be building up your studio with all new sets including a minature city, blue/green backdrop CGI - custom scenes, Japanese gardens, Spy settings and more. Behind the scenes you'll be given the chance of training and exploiting a team of stunt experts and advancing in the latest special effects technology. While you juggle your cash with producing movies, and looking after your cast, you'll be given more options than ever before.
Not only from new scenes and sets, more options are available to add an even more distinctive stamp on your movies. Due to fan outroars, finally one of the most sought modes is available: Free Camera! You'll be able to literally take your shots from any angle, in any motion or direction you want!
This expansion, along with added content, expands on the eye candy with new particle effects shown off by the new stunts and effects package, that feature the ability to add high speed car chases, and air chases! Catastrophic explosions and the most insane stunts you could put any actor through.
The expansion not only explores more depths to the movie industry, but opens the oppotunities for all gamers to create the true movie they've been waiting to make.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hollywood, watch out! 18 Jun. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I must say when I first got the original 'Movies' simulator for the PC I was very dissappointed as it only seemed to allow you to create films that the game already had the basic plot for. In other words you couldn't create films with plotlines from your own imagination. However I was soon proved to be wrong as you soon unlock the Intermediate Scriptwriting office that allows you to do that. Because of that I was glad that I didn't turn my back on this game.

Then I soon felt even more like a Director when this expansion pack came out. This expansion pack allows you not only to unlock brand new sets and vehicles/props and costumes etc but also allows you to do your own blockbuster stunts for your films. Since then I have made many epics ranging from comic book themes to horror and spoofs and I intend to make many more films. You can only make films that are about 20-30 mins max because they take up a fair bit of memory space but don't let that put you off, if you want to make films of your own get both the original Movies as well as this expansion pack for 100% pure fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Game i've played yet! 9 Feb. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The stunts part of this is boring and annoying BUT the free cam is GREAT! Your movies are much easier to make look the way you want and the extra costumes and haristyles add way more to the game. I also loved the set that makes it look like you being chased by a plane or UFO :) If you loved the movies there is NO reason not to buy this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lights,camera,Action 20 Mar. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This movies game is amazing, you can chose from a number of stunts from, slipping on a banana to a 2 wheeler car crash, its just the same as the first game when you make the movies but the upper hand is that you can high stunt men/ woman to fill in for your actors wen a stunt is needed.

but i must worn you, you must train you stunt men up before you give them a stunt to do because if there status is low in exsperiance and the stunt you want them to do is the highest one in the game,you will lose points towards your movie
