Google announced today, on the official Google blog, a few enhancements to the
specialized movie search feature
. They have pushed improvements adding detailed movie pages, genre filters, and theatre map views.
If you search for any movie title ( where the wild things are ) you’ll see brief bits of information about the movie, and movie times for a couple of your nearest theaters. If you click “More theaters,” or go to google.com/movies , you will be taken to an enhanced details page.
The page lists additional show times that which can be filtered by date, movie or theater. It also aggregates movie reviews from across the web. For some movies, there is an embedded YouTube player featuring the trailer and additional photos from the movie.
It’s a pretty nifty update. They just need a way to buy tickets using Google Checkout and they would have the whole package.
