Today we have the trailer for the upcoming "Branded" sci-fi movie, which stars Ed Stoppard, Leelee Sobieski, Jeffrey Tambor, and Max Von Sydow. The trailer contains many unique QR codes that lead to exclusive images and video content. Check it out below.
Plot: A journey into a surreal, dystopian society where corporate brands have unleashed a monstrous global conspiracy to get inside our minds and keep the population disillusioned, dependent and passive. One man's (Ed Stoppard) passion to unlock the truth behind the conspiracy will lead to an epic battle with the hidden forces that really control our world.
The movie, which Roadside Attractions compares to "They Live," is written and directed by marketing executives Jamie Bradshaw and Alexander Doulerain. It is set to hit theaters on September 7th.
"Nothing lamer than a revolution fantasy born out of boredom."
Now, now, the Occupy and NWO/WTO losers might not like your take on them leaving momma's closet, Cannon.
Wonder what these f*ckers will do when they finally crush business and we're all sitting around naked, eating each other or sh*tting into holes for sustenance?
Goddamn Tyler Durden.
"That sh*t needs to stop right now! Starting with the eradication of corn syrup."
You look smarter every day, bro. HFCS. Worse sh*t ever. Pure evil. It actually makes cane sugar look like...well, something not so bad. And they put it into everything.
Anyway, this bullsh*t looks stupid. They're cynically taking a stab at marketing by plastering QR codes throughout the movie, which looks like a rip-off between They Live and The Matrix. More the latter than the former. And the Hero's Journey sh*t with love interest in tow. Yawn.
As for fat people, it's the fault of culture for telling them they can do whatever the f*ck they want when they want, and for the fault of corporations for pushing endless food to people endlessly bored out of their little minds.
In all fairness, I do love me some Capitalism, but it ainít perfect either, so I have no problem with artists/filmmakers taking a jab at the system here and there (itís healthy for a society to mock itself) just as long as itís clever and doesnít get to self-righteously hip. John Carpenter did it right, and made it fun. This movie just comes across too blatant and too serious.
Never seen that before. Thanks -- sh*t was hilarious
looks weird, and not in a good way. the idiotic QR codes everywhere also make the whole enterprise a wee bit disingenuous. but hey, fat people eating juicy burgers! apparently, in the future the corporate advertisers at least start using more 'real' people in their commercials.
in my humble opinion, the movie/show that takes on corporatism best is still my namesake, Mr. Show (yeah, that old TV sketch comedy series from HBO). anyone who hasn't seen it, should. tonally, they nail it...
