Quick, Hit That Inhaler. Battle: Los Angeles Viral Site Launches

07.22.10 8 years ago 15 Comments

Amidst all the Hentei murals and Vince Mancini semen, a little something extra will be draped across the walls of Comic-Con this weekend: banners for Director Jonathan Liebesman’s (Darkness Falls, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) alien epic Battle: Los Angeles. Robopanda first reported on this movie last year, when the production had decided to cheat Louisiana for Los Angeles just to f**k with everyone. The film stars everyone’s favorite chin, Aaron Eckhart, along with the world’s most terrifying female, Michelle “I Can’t Tell If I’m Sexually Attracted To You Or Not” Rodriguez. The two play members of a group of Marines whom Eckhart must lead through the streets of a Lindsey Lohan extraterrestrial ridden Los Angeles.

The viral site went online yesterday, driving traffic to the web address scrawled across the film’s banner ads, ReportThreats.org. From the main page viewers then link directly to a web page named W.A.T.C.H. or Worldwide Assessment of Threats Concerning Humankind, offering mock-documentary footage, interviews and photographs. Hey, wake up, d**khead. I’ve got a block quote below.

The W.A.T.C.H. site, as well as the banners on display at Comic-Con, are all focused on a few actual real-life historical mysterious alien events, including the pinnacle Battle of Los Angeles event in LA in 1942 (you can read all about it at that link). The site contains a huge collection of “Expert Analysis” videos, links to a bunch of “Evidence” articles and “Eyewitness Testimonials.” Beyond all that we’re not sure if this will lead to any major viral events in San Diego or if it’s just the start of the viral for Battle: Los Angeles and only the first of many websites we’ll see related to these creepy historical extraterrestrial events.

The videos are all pretty shlocky, jumping between “eyewitnesses” who seem to have dropped out of their acting classes a little too soon, but do yourself a favor and click the Battle of Los Angeles link from above -I do enjoy the idea of structuring the film around actual UFO documentations from the past (they did that for Waterworld too, right?), I’ll give them that. I just hope it all lives up to its potential.

Sadly enough, Arizona was not available to comment on the invasion at this time. Hiyoooo!!!!!
