As the release date for Green Lantern draws near, advertisements for the film are starting to appear. With trailers, tv spots, and toys being the usual go to ads, WB has not forgot to reach out to the Internet audiences. Their virals have led up to an ARG and a promotional campaign with Doritos as their partner. Jonnny, one of our readers, sent an e-mail to Dr. Amanda Waller (played by Angela Basset), and received a reply from her. Hit the jump to see what our reader sent and what she said in response to that email.
In a blog post by Brain, the Newton and District Astronomer’s Guild asked readers to send out an e-mail to Dr. Waller saying
I’d like to draw your attention to a strange astronomical phenomenon we have discovered around Cygnus. Since the night of 1st May new fuzzy red objects have appeared in the dark nebula that have not been reported in that sector of space before. Something big is happening out there.
I have proof.
MovieViral.com reader Jonny filled out the contact information required and sent the e-mail to Dr. Waller and received this e-mail.
I’d like to support the Newton Astronomers Guild’s application for a closer look at the Cygnus anomaly. My observations support their assertion that completely new artifacts have appeared in this sector of space and this needs to be investigated.
I can surmise that this will be the e-mail that will be sent out to those who also filled out all their contact information. Although it would be great if a variety of e-mails were sent out.
With the Green Lantern a little over a month away from release, we can expect more ads to appear. Let’s just hope that they also remember to keep up with their virals. It has been six days since we saw a new Newton’s Astronomer’s blog post, so don’t be surprised to see a new one some time in the near future. We will keep you updated as The Green Lantern ARG progresses.
