Opera house undergoes online renovation.

October 06, 2004 - The official film site for Warner Brothers' forthcoming big-screen version of The Phantom of the Opera has been updated.

The site for the Joel Schumacher-directed version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber stage musical now features the film's trailer, a gallery of still photos, downloads, a message board, and information on how to participate in the "Mad About Musicals" Sweepstakes. A Flash version of the site is coming soon.

The official plot synopsis says "The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a disfigured musical genius (Gerard Butler) who haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera, waging a reign of terror over its occupants. When he falls fatally in love with the lovely Christine (Emmy Rossum), the Phantom devotes himself to creating a new star for the Opera, exerting a strange sense of control over the young soprano as he nurtures her extraordinary talents."

Phantom opens this December.
