Cola Bottles Take Manhattan: Branded: The Trailer
From Directors and Writers Jamie Bradshaw and Aleksandr Dulerayn comes this twisted little tale of major brands ingratiating themselves into every day society in order to render the human race bloated and incapable of fending off a major invasion – at least that’d be my guess based on the zany trailer. Set in New York apparently, it’s strangely Eastern European looking in design.
With Max Von Sydow (looking surprisingly gaunt) and Jeffrey Tambor in seemingly strategically dramatic parts this looks like it might be a little bit of a joy to behold – if the trailer hasn’t given away the plot completely.
Not quite the new Dark City perhaps but potentially worth a look as an example of a medium size movie trying big blockbuster ideas.
