Blogs as film tie-ins

In the past studios have created fictional websites as tie-ins for movies. One recent example is the website for Manchurian Global, created to add verisimilitude to this summer's inferior remake of The Manchurian Candidate.

Though I admit that it's probably happened before, this is the first time I've heard of studios using blogs as part of the marketing for a film. Have there been others?

Count Olaf from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events has a blog Olaf Unleashed

That's the blog I was referring to. :-)

By the way, those books (at least the ones I've read) are a lot of fun. They are especially fun to read aloud if you like to do voices. I don't particularly, but for some reason I decided that Count Olaf needed to sound like an old classmate from college who always overpronounced his L's. Now I'll be disappointed if Count Olaf doesn't sound like that in the movie.

I guess I didn't see the link on the word blog. The movie Godsend has a "tie-in" website The Godsend Institute
