In January, players will be able to log on to www.themoviesgame.com, go to the Prop Shop and use virtual credits earned from creating and uploading movies to the web site to purchase John Malkovich "Uncle Kimono" outfits for their stars. Malkovich says the collection "has resonance of late 1950's California beach boys, some Palm Springs Rat Pack, a touch of lounge lizards, and a recollection of a Swiss banker who's been let go." More information about Malkovich's clothing line can be found at www.johnmalkovich.org.
Launched on December 16, 2005, the Prop Shop will be updated regularly with a host of new costumes, sets, and props for players to download and use in their cinematic masterpieces.
