Share Your Thoughts: Are These Videos UFO Proof Or ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ Viral Marketing?
  |  @   |  

With just a quick search, anyone can find hundreds of decent videos claiming to show off proof of extraterrestrial crafts flying, hovering, and disappearing from Earth’s own skies.

A new video recently hit the web from Jerusalem where two men visiting Mount Zion noticed a strange ball of light in the night sky. The ball then slowly moves downward to hover directly over the Temple Mount, not all that far from the ground at all. Suddenly, a blast of light explodes, and the ball of light shoots up into the sky as if startled. After disappearing into the darkness, it then becomes clear that multiple red lights are floating high above.

So do we have some solid proof of alien visitors here, or are those crafty movie marketing teams up to their tricks again? Click on over to the other side to see some videos of this event and share your thoughts in the comments!

‘The Last Exorcism’ Viral Campaign Shocks Horny Guys On Chatroulette
  |  @   |  

If you’re unfamiliar with Chatroulette, the website allows people with webcams to be matched up with strangers for some random social interaction. Not working quite as planned, the site has built a reputation for offering up a whole lot of lonely men (often “in all their glory,” if you know what I mean) ready to show off to the lucky ladies who find themselves regrettable staring back.

In a work of genius viral marketing, the new horror film The Last Exorcism decided to take advantage of this situation. They put together videos of beautiful young women, who would appear to be ready to put on a show for the gentlemen watching her feed. Just when the girl looks like she’s about to remove her clothing, however, the eager male expressions turn to shock as her eyes roll back in her head, and a demon-esque creature comes at the camera.

Thankfully, there’s some videos of reactions to this unexpected horror, and you can head below to check them out for yourselves!

Watch Now! Teaser Trailer For J.J. Abrams & Steven Spielberg’s ‘Super 8’ Released
  |  @   |  

Last week the internet was on fire with rumors that a teaser trailer for Cloverfield 2 might be playing in front of the arrival of Iron Man 2 when it was released last weekend.

As you can read at the bottom of our post on that rumor, there was also the chance that it could instead be a collaboration that J.J. Abrams was doing with Steven Spielberg, which would be a nod to the master film maker’s science fiction and horror work in the ’70s and ’80s. In either case, it was very clear that movie fans had something to be excited about for the 2011 summer movie season.

After that, we received an exclusive spy report of the mysterious trailer, which made it clear that it was without doubt the Spielberg collaboration. And though many were saddened that it was not Cloverfield 2, that sadness will quickly be replaced by excitement when you witness the teaser trailer here and now.

Grab your hand-held camera — just in case — and be sure not to miss a frame when you click over to the other side to watch the trailer for J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg’s Super 8.

Watch Now! Decoded ‘Tron: Legacy’ Puzzle Leads To Great New Trailer
  |  @   |  

Viral marketing has been a popular and entertaining method of promoting new films for a while now. Crafty videos with no known origins, guerilla-style fliers and posters slapped around town, and websites with mysterious puzzles are all good examples of these unique methods of getting the eyes and pockets of potential movie-goers solidified in their film.

The Walt Disney Company has no issues with the viral marketing option, and recently put together some cryptic puzzles in relation to their upcoming Tron: Legacy. When all of said puzzles were deciphered, the end-goal revealed a brand new trailer for the movie, and it is spectacular.

Want To Work For An Iron Man? Even In These Tough Economic Times, Stark Industries Is Hiring!
  |  @   |  

Jon Favreau‘s Iron Man 2 isn’t set to come out until May 7, 2010, but Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is preparing for the boom in business by hiring new employees, and you can go and apply yourself right now at Stark Industries! If you need to suck up, I suggest sucking up to the new CEO, Miss Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), who you would probably be working for more than Mr. Stark these days.

You’ll fill out the basic information, such as your name and location, before moving on to your skills and goals in your life and career. You’ll even be asked a couple of questions that you likely won’t know the answer to, which is always a good way to weed out prospective employees.

As a viral marketing campaign, it’s a pretty cool and original idea, but I’m not quite sure what it is yet. There is a terms of use agreement to OK, which mentions respecting other users and forums. It could be the ultimate Iron Man 2 social networking website, theoretically.
