Evan Almighty Virtual Ark [26/07/2007]
To celebrate the release of the new comedy film Evan Almighty, producers are inviting web users to showcase their pets or favourite animals in a bid to make the web’s biggest virtual animal community.
Directed by Tom Shadyac (The Nutty Professor, Liar Liar, Bruce Almighty) Evan Almighty is sequel to the 2003 film Bruce Almighty, and sees Steve Carell star as preening newscaster Evan Baxter.
Newly elected to Congress, Evan leaves Buffalo behind and shepherds his family to suburban northern Virginia. Once there, his life gets turned upside-down when God (Morgan Freeman) appears and mysteriously commands him to build an ark. But his befuddled family just can't decide whether Evan is having an extraordinary mid-life crisis or is truly onto something of Biblical proportions.
The Evan Almighty Virtual Ark website is based around the films central theme – the building of the ark and is an online community in which users are invited to upload a picture, or video of their pets and favourite animals to form a unique and exciting pet profile.
Any pet can take their place on the Ark, including dogs, cats, dolphins, goldfish, ducks, lions and zebra’s and much more. Details may include the animal’s likes and dislikes and users can write a personal message and create a personalised pet avatar.
It’s expected, the Evan Almighty Virtual Ark will fill up randomly with thousands of other animals and pets that are able to explore the Evan Almighty Virtual Ark. Pets are not located in one fixed position and users can navigate through the different floor levels of the ark by clicking on the map. Once you’ve selected a pet or animal you can check out other users’ profiles, watch their entertaining video clips and photographs and add them to a favourites list.
What’s more, everyone who joins the ark will also be entered into a prize draw to win a variety of prizes, including £100 to spend at PetPlanet.co.uk, a family break at a Butlins sea-side resort, day tickets to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm and more!!!
The ark is due to set sail on the films release date of August 3rd so make sure you take your place!
