Entertainment properties are quickly showing a move towards in video ads and a user interface that makes you, the consumer, a part of the movie magic. I cannot comment on the movie. but the ads and microsite exude creative hotness and an awesome experience. Visit the http://webapp1.latimes.com/theblackdahlia/ to jump in to the storyline.
This campaign, launched by Universal and the Los Angeles Times, marks
the first integrated print, online and out-of-home campaign using
actual news stories -- pulled from the Los Angeles Times archives --

Chicago Tribune and Newsday ad inserts. Ads have also been place on the
latimes.com website driving audiences to the minisite.
