SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Yahoo on Thursday launched an online magazine for film lovers.

Yahoo Movies debuted as the pioneering Internet firm continued to shed its online search engine past in favour of a future as a venue for premier digital content and services, particularly aimed at smartphones and tablet computers.

"People are devouring films on their phones, tablets and laptops," the digital magazine's executive entertainment editor Josh Wolk said in a blog post.

"And that's where Yahoo Movies lives as well, with a full screen experience for first-look movie trailers, behind-the-scenes scoop, and red-carpet galleries." Wolk promised articles from critics; interviews with Hollywood stars, and live-streamed events such as red carpets at movie premiers.
