Movieland will be featured at the upcoming Comic-Con event in July with a large life-sized version set up for fans to walk through as if inside the game with real props from the summer films.

The game marks the effort to transition from a web portal and search engine to a site offering content that engages readers and offers a service. Recently, Yahoo streamed the premieres of blockbuster The Hunger Games.

Movieland is a partnership with Universal, Warner Bros., Lionsgate and Paramount studios with films featured including Rock of Ages starring Tom Cruise, Dark Knight Rises with Christian Bale, The Expendables 2 with Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, plus more.
