As mentioned in the last TWIV, The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen viral campaign has kicked off finally. With Linkin Park’s song New Divide available now, Paramount’s efforts to get people to the theater are in full force. Check out our Transformers page, and read about the new viral sites after the jump.
The Real Effing Deal
Visible on Sam’s jacket here, this is the first site that was discovered (shortly after the new trailer came out). The site is run by Leo Spitz (Ramon Rodriguez) and is all about the battle of Mission City from the end of the first movie, finding out the truth and conspiracies etc. Leo apparently has a thing for Olivia Munn from G4TV, as she is referred to as ‘Future Mrs. Spitz’ on the site. The site has blurry images of Optimus Prime and Starscream.
Giant Effing Robots
Run by ‘Robo-Warrior’ (Jon Turturro), this site is in direct competition with The Real Effing Deal. On the site, Turturro talks about his dislike for Leo Spitz, but he also has a little thing for Olivia Munn, as well as Star Trek. The site’s first post is on 9/8/08 and aren’t very common, however this should change now that the viral has kicked off and the site was discovered.
The third and final site in the viral campaign, not running yet. This site (and company) is responsible for covering up the events in Mission City, as well as studying the Transformers in order to gain technological advancements. What they do/don’t have in the movie is currently unknown. This might be the company that is shown at the end of one of the new TV spots (It’s On).
Thanks to transformerslive.blogspot.com for the details. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters on June 24th this summer. Expect more coverage of this film and it’s viral as it becomes available.
