Scene It? Box Office Smash is a party game and the adaption of the popular DVD-based party game of the same name exclusively for the Xbox 360. It is the sequel to Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action. The game was developed by Krome Studios and Screenlife and released on October 28, 2008. The title is one of the first games to feature Xbox Live Avatars. A downloadable question pack called "Award Winners" is available on Xbox Live Marketplace, offering 800 new questions.
Like other games in the series, Box Office Smash is a trivia game where up to four players test their movie trivia knowledge over several themed rounds composed of five questions each. Some rounds have players watching a clip from a well-known movie, then answering questions based on what was shown in the scene, while others are more abstract, such as a round in which players have to identify the names of movies based on drawings that depict not the content of the film but rather the words that compose its title.
During Microsoft's Press Conference at E3 2008, Shane Kim announced Box Office Smash, along with You're in the Movies, another party game. According to the trailer shown at the conference, the game appeared to be pretty similar to the game that came out in 2007, but with the support of the avatar system that Microsoft announced earlier. The trailer showed an increasingly large crowd of people in an electronics store playing the game. Gameplay footage was also shown during the conference.
