Game of Thrones Dragon Skull Image

OK, so we can’t say a real dragon’s head is now resting on the beach of the Jurassic Coast in England, unfortunately, though it is still a fantastic thing to see.

British video on demand service BlinkBox created the giant skull and put it on the beach to promote the arrival of season three of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. The skull is inspired by the skulls seen/read about in season one and book one, when Arya is in the dungeons of the Red Keep and happens upon the many dragon skulls that formerly decorated the Great Hall of the Iron Throne when the Targaryens ruled.

You can check out a video of the making of the giant skull and you can see more images at the source link below.

Well folks, it looks like the apocalypse isn’t canceled after all. This morning, the monstrous Kaiju of Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim made land fall in San Diego, California. Ladies and gentlemen, the Great Kaiju War has begun and it will be televised… or streamed on YouTube at least!

Taken from helicopters flying over Qualcomm Stadium, the footage below shows a series of colossal craters – a monster’s massive footprints – in and around the stadium. As if stadium parking wasn’t the pits already, am I right people?!

Doom Deliveries: ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ Unlock The Genius Kit

Da Vinci's Demons

A package recently arrived which contained within a wooden box with a message on top to UNLOCK THE GENIUS with the date 4-12-13. What could this be? Why, it must be a Doom Delivery!

Upon opening the box, I found a note inside from the good people at STARZ regarding their new show, Da Vinci’s Demons, which airs tonight at 10pm ET/PT. The eight-part original series is an historical fantasy which tells the untold tale of a young Leonardo da Vinci and reveals his “demons.” It turns out that the contents of the box are actually meant to help me tap into my inner genius! Woo! The kit contained a journal – so I can put my own ingenious thoughts to paper – and a Da Vinci’s Demons t-shirt that reads “ARROGANT, VISIONARY, BASTARD” on the front, with the back displaying the show’s logo.

You can check out a photo of the box and its contents here below, as well as watch a few teaser videos for the series.

Watch Now: Creepy Girl From ‘The Ring’ Throws Out First Pitch At Baseball Game

Samara in The Ring

We you aware that they were still making movies about that little creepy chick from The Ring, which was a remake of the Japanese horror flick Ringu? Neither did we!

As it turns out, a new movie about everyone’s favorite adorable little well-dweller, named Sadako in Japan (Samara here in the States), was released in May of 2012 titled Sadako 3D. Whether the movie is good or bad is of no consequence, but what is worth a peek is some of the promotions that were run to market the movie.

One of the promotions was for Sadako to come out before a baseball game and throw out the first pitch, which is…well, it’s something to see. Marketing a horror movie using comical techniques is a bit unorthodox, but hey, why not?

Continue below now to see the first pitch, as well as a trailer for the movie.

Doom Deliveries: ‘Stoker’ Skeleton Key Necklace & Sharpened Pencils

Stoker film banner

In early February, a small white box with a yellow ribbon arrived at Geeks of Doom headquarters. Inside was a skeleton key necklace wrapped in yellow tissue paper tied up with a thin black ribbon. There was nothing else with it; no message inside and the sender’s address was unfamiliar with no company name mentioned. Having received mysterious objects like this in the past (see our other Doom Deliveries), I figured it must be a viral campaign for an upcoming film or TV show. We tried searching for clues, but there were none to be found.

Earlier this week, another small white box with a yellow ribbon arrived, this time with sharpened pencils in a black case. We figured it had to do with that first mysterious package, but again, we wondered what it could be related to … until we took the pencils out and noticed a photo of a woman pasted into the bottom. I recognized the woman right away – it was Alice In Wonderland actress Mia Wasikowska, but it took me a while to recall that the image was from the poster for the film Stoker, directed by Chan-wook Park.

You can check out photos here below of the two packages that arrived.

The Last Exorcism Part II Header Image

Back in 2010 we saw the then upcoming horror movie The Last Exorcism pull some crafty viral marketing techniques off by taking advantage of the users of Chatroulette.

Now The Last Exorcism Part II is on the way, and again, some viral marketing is being put to good use. This time around their victims are the patrons of a beauty salon who will see things they’re not expecting to see.

You can check out the prank video below, but be warned, people tend to say naughty things when having the crap scared out of them, and in this particular case those things are not censored. A NSFW warning is in effect!

Emotions of David-8

Oh how excited I would be if Fox generously put a David-8 android on my doorstep. Earlier today we posted an article about the latest product from Weyland Industries, which is actually one of the key elements in the Prometheus viral marketing campaign. The video detailed all the aspects of what the David-8 was programmed and designed for, and now a new video has surfaced detailing the emotions of the android (to be played by Michael Fassbender).

Hit the jump if you want to know more details about the fascination robot.

As stated in the earlier video, Weyland Industries’ David-8 lack the ability to express any human emotion and are programmed to perform the tasks that humans deem questionable and unethical. But a new video has the ability to unlock those emotions that were otherwise considered unlockable. In the gallery here below are four of my favorite emotions.

Prometheus Viral Video Introduces Us To David 8

While I was sitting in the theater watching Cabin In The Woods this weekend I was galvanized in my belief that knowing as little as possible about the actual events of a film before you see it makes for a much more enjoyable and organic entertainment experience. Trailers ruin movies for people every goddamn day. Before you even purchase your ticket, the chance that you’ve likely already seen every key scene, explosion, death, punchline, and catch-phrase is pretty high.

But this new viral video for Prometheusthis is how you promote a film without giving away the freakin’ beginning, ending, and everything in between.

Watch the video here after the jump.
