“Branded” Trailer Uses QR Codes To Warn of Conspiracy

Roadside Attractions’ sci-fi thriller Branded looks to be sort of a remake of 1988’s They Live. Set in a dystopian future where corporate brands have taken over the minds of the population, one man is finally able to see the aliens controlling it all. A trailer for the film came out this week, and it is laden with QR Codes that are more than just show. Get the details after the break.

Watch the trailer below from Yahoo, and pay attention to the multitude of QR codes throughout.

I checked a few of the QR codes, and while they are all technically different, they lead to the same place, a subpage of the official Branded movie website, Code 11. Here we find a countdown to June 25, when “the next layer of the conspiracy will be revealed.” You can sign up to be notified, and it will be interesting to see what this “next layer” will be. We’ll keep you updated.

Branded opens in theaters on September 7th, and since the official website doesn’t have much information, check out IMDB. The website does have a cool feature where it will play the trailer if you scan it with a QR reader on a device. I’m not quite sure how that works, but it’s a nice touch.
