This (Not So) Secret BATTLE: LOS ANGELES-Related Site Has Some Cool Stuff To Look At!!

 

Merrick here...

If you've been anticipating BATTLE: LOS ANGELES as much as I have, you might enjoy the following coolness gleaned by the folks over at JoBlo.  Summarizing...

If you go to the film's official site (HERE), then make your way to the "Sightings Map"...

...enter the code "031111" into the "Priority Access" field at the bottom of the screen...

...you'll be taken to unidentifiedenemy.com  - a vaguely interactive set of files and dossiers which reveal more information about the aliens who are kicking our ass (including some 360 views of tech).  A little countdown on the site indicates that more information will be released in 18 days - this could be fun.

    OK ENOUGH WITH THAT CREEPY THEME SONG MARKETING TEAM

    by gruemanlives

    IT WAS COOL WHEN I HEARD IT THE FIRST HUNDRED TIMES, BUT NOW IT'S COMING OFF AS ANNOYING.

    0311

    Is the Marine Corps MOS number for Infantry. That was rather clever on the websites creator to use it as the entry code since the movie follows around a Squad of Marine Infantry.

    031111 is the movie's release date isn't it?

    by impossibledreamers

    March 11th. Though the coincidence is not lost on me.

    I miss the days when movies came out without a marketing campaign.

    by Ironhelix

    I hate having all this information before the film is even released.

    Ok just so that Credit goes to the right place

    There's a bit on that website after you've entered the code where you can see some images of the Aliens. If you click on the images and move your mouse around, it looks like the images are 3D. This idea was ripped off the loading screens for Killzone 2 the playstation game. Using displacement maps fixed to the camera or viewing angle. It was done much better on Killzone 2!

    I don't know braindrain

    I think this will be just as big a piece of shit as Avatar. Nowhere near as big a pile of money will result but it will be just as much of a stupid re-tread as Avatar. You take 3D away from Avatar and you're looking at a 350-400 million dollar hit. Maybe 500 million tops. Make it stand on it's own merits as a movie and not a carnival ride and it's pretty damned ordinary.

  • It starts out well enough but quickly becomes the most blatant army recrutement video I've seen in years. I'll bet money that the US army poured some cash in this flick, it's so incredibly pro-army, so much that I'm sure marines will rub their cocks on the silver screen. But it's decent, horribly fucking cheesy in the middle but looks amazing. Sort of a mix between Black Hawk Down and District 9 in look and feel.

    No Comment on the film

    by cushing1967

    But can some one buy the website designers a map that shows that Suffolk, in reality isn't in fucking in Scotland? Yep, the Past Sightings part of the site - which leads to wiki links is shoddy as Hell

  • Jan. 21, 2011, 5:52 p.m. CST

    Oh and the current attacks?

    London is known for many things but sun kissed beaches areen't amongst them.
