Check This Out: Early Viral Teaser Poster for Surrogates
We haven't really seen much from Surrogates yet, Disney's new sci-fi film starring Bruce Willis, due out in September. Either that's because they're very worried (the footage I've seen looked terrible) or because they have a plan for it that doesn't start until the summer. Back in February we did a brief write-up on the rather lackluster viral that they've put together that involves users creating surrogate robots (e.g. avatars) of themselves. Found on that viral website (via MovieViral.com) comes a new teaser poster, featuring nothing but two naked bodies embracing, but it's a fairly enticing tease for those unaware of the film or the plot.
Disney still hasn't publicly released a trailer for Surrogates yet, although I expect if they actually want to get people interested, they'll put one out on Star Trek or Terminator Salvation, so stay tuned. If you're curious about the viral, click the poster above or just hit this link: chooseyoursurrogate.com. As much as I should say that this has some potential to be great, especially as a viral marketing ARG, I just think their ideas for promoting this are rather unimpressive and I don't expect it'll get any better by September. Surrogates is directed by Jonathan Mostow, of U-571 and Terminator 3 previously, and is in theaters on September 25th.
