Here's a story/of a bunch of Bradys/who decided to give cyberspace a try. To get fans ready for the Feb. 17 launch of "The Brady Bunch Movie," Nick at Nite is bringing America's favorite TV family online at Internet address http://nick-at-nite.viacom.com or America Online keyword Nick at Nite. Through Feb. 20, users can access sneak peeks of the movie, download classic clips, photos and sound bites of family members, chat with Cindy, Greg or Bobby Brady, or learn about a sweepstakes that could send you and eight other people on a complimentary Hawaiian vacation (just like the one the Bradys took).
If you're dying for news about the heavy metal band Megadeth (we know you are), log onto the Internet at http://bazaar.com/. Capitol Records built a virtual town, called Megadeth, Arizona, to promote the band's latest album, "Youthanasia." There you'll find such delicacies as band gossip, a problem-solving column featuring "every gory detail" and "Crown of Worms," a downloadable song. Hey, we never said it was pretty.
It's "Mr. Payback" time. Expect to see a lot of closet film directors at showings of "Mr. Payback," billed as the world's first interactive movie. Opening Feb. 17 in theaters in Chicago, Boston, New York and other cities, the film (starring Christopher Lloyd and Billy Warlock) lets audience members dictate the action by pressing buttons on a remote control attached to each seat in the theater. The result is a 20-minute movie and, we're sure, a memorable experience.
