I'm trying to figure out what the first instance was of a website being created specifically for a movie. I've narrowed it down to Star Trek Generations (1994) and Stargate (1994).
I was pretty sure it was Star Trek Generations, because I had it from a couple of sources, but then after a little bit more googling I found that people make the same claim for Stargate.
According to IMDB, Star Trek Generations was released in November 1994 and Stargate in October 1994. I don't believe the fact that Stargate was released first necessarily means that the website was too.
For Star Trek Generations:
- From IMDB trivia: "The first movie to have a web site created specifically to promote it."
- From IMDB trivia: "This was the first movie to ever have an official website. It was set up by Dean Devlin in 1994 and featured images, trailers and behind the scenes clips and actor information."
