Coming soon to a desktop near you: Microsoft's Office The Movie

Posted by Sharon Chan

"There are 5 billion working people in the world. In 2010 their hero will arrive."

Those are the opening lines to an online video trailer for Microsoft Office 2010. The company is now taking requests for the technical preview, set to begin in July, which you can sign up for at the Microsoft site "Office 2010 The Movie."

Like a trailer for a real movie, it doesn't say much about the plot of the movie, I mean, the software.

Dennis Liu, credited as the director of the trailer, sounds like a technology agnostic guy. He first gained notice last year for making a music video on the Mac. In this interview with the Unofficial Apple Weblog, he says he's a Mac fan. The video is set to the song "Again and Again" by Bird and the Bee, which has been viewed 1.3 million times. Here's that video:

And, check out this other funny short film he did called "Pretend to Work" using Microsoft Office for Mac:
