Google Movies: Now Playing

Over on Google Blog there is an announcement about yet another new feature, when will Google stop?

Just in time for the Oscars, we've created a new "movie:" operator that enables you to find movie-related information faster and more easily, whether you're looking for titles or actors, director or genre, famous lines or obscure plot details. Can't remember the name of that film where Tom Hanks made friends with a volleyball? Search for [movie: Tom Hanks talking to a volleyball] and Google will tell you: it was Cast Away. Want rental recommendations? Try searching for [movie: awesome car chase] or [movie: good chick flick].

So next time your stuck trying to describe a film to some one or are stumped by "who was the actor in that film? You know the one, the one with the dog in a pink bow?" Now you can turn to Google for the answers.

Also you can now check to see what films are playing in your area, providing your area happens to be some where in side the USA, that is.
