It seems like everyone saw a certain movie with Jennifer Lawrence this weekend. If you’re still looking for your Hunger Games fix or curious to know what the fuss is about, check out The Capitol Tour, a companion site to the movie that extends the film to the web and includes exclusive content from director Gary Ross and the movie itself. It’s delivered via a special Internet Explorer 9 website powered by web standards HTML5 and CSS3. Microsoft, Lionsgate and digital agencies Ignition Interactive and The Nerdery teamed up to build the site from top to bottom using the latest in modern web standards, so the content is easily accessible across various platforms, devices, and browsers without the need for plug-ins. This collaboration demonstrates how businesses can create immersive, innovative online experiences that are both fast and fluid with a standard-based markup.
