Watch the Flashy Office 2010: The Movie Trailer

The release of a new major piece of Microsoft software, be it an operating system (we already know how big of a deal Windows 7 is) or an office productivity suite, is much like a blockbuster movie franchise.

Unlike movie series like the Matrix, Star Wars, Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings, there will continually new versions of Microsoft Office that hope to improve upon the one before it – perhaps like James Bond movies.

Microsoft seems to have realized that its major software is like the release of an event picture, where people plan around and anticipate it, and have commissioned Traffik Filmworks and director Dennis Liu to create a promotional movie combining Office themes and a major blockbuster like the Matrix.

It might not have a lot to do with the little details of all the improvements in Office 2010, but any computer user should be able to appreciate all the little nods in the Office 2010: The Movie trailer. Check it out embedded below.

    I always kind of hoped the search engine Dog would eat the Office Clippy and choke, killing them both.

    Don't worry guys, the movie is fictional. Clippy didn't really die.

    I have never seen anybody using Clippy. That's one of the worst ideas that M$ have ever implemented. The only thing that is worse than that is probably Bob.
