It’s becoming the norm to use two devices at once while consuming entertainment. We watch TV with our phones in hand, ready to tweet our minute-to-minute reactions. Along with the newest Netflix delivery, we keep our laptop handy, set to check IMDb to instantly relieve any nagging feelings of “I know I’ve seen that actress in something before.”
The entertainment industry has taken note: The most buzz-worthy tech to come out of this year’s E3 convention was the Wii U, a videogame console that includes a touchscreen embedded on the controller. There’s even talk of allowing cell phone use in movie theaters. And now, Warner Bros. is inviting viewers at home to use their tablets while watching the DVD for the latest Sherlock Holmes movie, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.
WB’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadowsmovie app syncs with the Blu-ray disc for the film. The Blu-ray/DVD pack hits stores tomorrow, but if you’re eager to watch one of its features before then, you can check out this EW exclusive video, a featurette on Holmes-o-vision with interviews from producers Lionel Wigram and Susan Downey and director Guy Richie.
