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.
