New Poster for Alien Invason Flick Branded

7 Comments

Apparently this poster for “Branded”, like the trailer (above), is full of fancy QR Codes that you can scan with your smartphone and get websites or apps or STDs or what not. If you’ve got some free time, feel free to scan the poster/trailer and let us know in the comments section what you find. Unless, of course, it’s something not worth sharing, then, you know, keep it to yourself.

BRANDED is a dark and mind-bending sci-fi thriller into a surreal, dystopian society where mega corporations have unleashed a monstrous global conspiracy to get inside our minds and keep the population disillusioned, dependent and passive. One man’s quest to unlock the truth behind the conspiracy will lead to an epic battle with the hidden forces that really control our world.

“Branded” stars Ed Stoppard, Leelee Sobieski, Jeffrey Tambor, Ingeborga Dapkunaite, and Max Von Sydow, with Roadside Attractions setting the film for a September 7, 2012 release. It’s directed by Jamie Bradshaw and Aleksandr Dulerayn, former ad men trying their hand at directing.

This film would have gotten a lot more attention oh, a year ago, before Hollywood tried to drown us in alien invasion movies. Now, it just feels late to the party, ambitious “we’re all just sheep” not-so-subtle messages and all. It’s original title was “The Mad Cow”, which I think was a more awesome title, though admittedly strange in terms of alien invasion sci-fi movies.

    When exactly did Hollywood try to drown us in alien invasion movies? And what movies were they? Science fiction has been an endangered species in Hollywood for a very long time now? Branded looks good though…….can’t wait.

      Um Battle Los Angeles, Skyline, Falling Skies (on tv), Darkest Hour, just to name the ones that I can remember I think there may have been another. Oh wait Avenegers had an invasion too!

        Adding to what Dedpool already said… “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, “Battleship”, “Cowboys and Aliens”, “Monsters”, “Super 8″, “Men in Black 3″, “The Thing”. And that’s just the big-budget Hollywood ones in the last 2 years. Would you like me to get started on the low-budget/direct-to-DVD ones, too?

          Yeah you’re right those were the big budget movies in the last 2 years. I guess I can’t get enough. Sci-fi is the best genre to me though. The really good ones are more of a commentary on modern day society.
          A low of the low budget / direct -to-DVD sci-fi were really good too.

            Oh, I agree, I can’t get enough alien invasion movies myself, but true to Hollywood, they like to beat something into the ground FAST.
