Feel like an alien invasion movie that actually came out of nowhere (like an alien invasion)? Try Branded (aka Mockba 2017). The Russian production has Leelee Sobieski (Joy Ride), Jeffrey Tambor (‘Arrested Development”) and Max Von Sydow (The Exorcist). Nice, huh?
Per Variety, “Roadside Attractions has acquired North American rights to sci-fier “Branded” and plans a nationwide theatrical release this September. Lionsgate has home entertainment, VOD and other ancillary rights through their output deal.” In a remarkable piece of news that doubles as a metaphor for today’s film industry the report also states that the film was “co-written, produced and directed by marketing executives Jamie Bradshaw and Alexander Doulerain.”
The film is, “A dark and mind-bending 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, Misha’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.”
Head inside for the trailer!
