Branded Trailer. Jamie Bradshaw, Alexander Doulerain‘s Branded (2011) movie trailer stars Leelee Sobieski, Max von Sydow, Ed Stoppard, Jeffrey Tambor, and Lyubo Yonchev. Branded‘s plot synopsis: “BRANDED is a dark and mind-bending journey into a surreal, dystopian society where corporate brands have unleashed a monstrous global conspiracy to get inside our minds and keep the population disillusioned, dependent and passive. One man’s Misha (Ed Stoppard) passion to unlock the truth behind the conspiracy will lead to an epic battle with the hidden forces that really control our world.”

Branded looks interesting but I would rather the aliens’ presence was more subtle. The effects remind the viewer of The Darkest Hour and Skyline, two films it should strive to avoid. They Live seems to be the goal here.
More on Branded, the directors, and their theory on marketing:
Co-director (with Alexander Doulerain) Jamie Bradshaw says marketing may just be the biggest ill facing modern society:
The most powerful weapon on earth today is not a gun or a disease, nor is it even visible to many. It is Marketing. Marketing is the power to control your desires and change your mind, and if you look closer there is something about it that is not of this earth.
And you can trust him on that, because he should know. Bradshaw and Doulerian are themselves marketing execs, you see. Bradshaw is the co-founder of Ignition Creative, while Doulerian is Chief Creative Officer of Russian TV network TNT.
