From the country of Russia comes a dark look at corporate advertising in the not too distant future. BRANDED is a story about a company that has unlocked a code to control people’s desires and make them more ‘susceptible’ to advertising. But that’s only the surface of the story. From imdb:
Set in a dystopian future where corporate brands have created a disillusioned population, one man’s effort to unlock the truth behind the conspiracy will lead to an epic battle with hidden forces that control the world.
Check out the paranoia inflicting surreal trailer that will have you wondering if this is already happening…
Crazy right? This movie looks like they made a juicy sandwich out of John Carpenter’s THEY LIVE and the Anime PAPRIKA. And did you catch some of the QR codes that showed for a split second? I used my iPhone to look at the first one and it took me to a webpage that said “The Next Layer of Conspiracy will be Revealed…” with a countdown clock. Yo!! I love this kind of inventive marketing for movies.
“Unlock the Code, Take Back Your Mind, Before It’s Branded” Yesssss!!!!
BRANDED will open in theaters in the USA and Russia on September 7th, 2012. You will be compelled to watch.
