Conspiracy movie Branded gets a pretty cool trailer

Did you ever think that maybe advertising is lying to you? Well, what if there was much, much more to it…

Set in a future that is perhaps not too far away, Branded tells the story of corporations and their final attempt to break the code of the human mind and control us with consumerism. In a similaR vein to They Live, this is one for all of us who are pretty sure fast food isn’t the answer – even if the ads say it is. It stars Geoffrey Tambor and Max Von Sydow and is due for release on September 7 in the USA.

BRANDED is a dark, mind-bending journey into a surreal, dystopian near future where corporate brands have unleashed a global conspiracy to control who we are and keep the population disillusioned, dependent and passive. One man, Misha (Ed Stoppard) is passionate to take back control, uncover the truth behind the conspiracy and lies and try to stop it from destroying our world

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
