This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed and reviewed 10 CLoverfield Lane, the pseudo-sequel to 2008’s Cloverfield. The marketing for both Cloverfield and now 10 Cloverfield Lane has been quite interesting. The first Cloverfield had some great viral marketing behind it that created some great buzz for the film. As for 10 Cloverfield Lane, there was ZERO marketing until January, just two months before the film’s release. So with that as our inspiration, we looked at some of our favorite marketing campaigns we’ve seen over the years.
That being said, what marketing campaigns would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:
*Keep in mind we have different criteria for our lists as well*
1) The Marvel Cinematic Universe end credit teasers
2) Hans Zimmer, Pharrell and The Magnificent Six concert for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

2) Ambiguous marketing for Inception
