The premise of 'They Live' is that aliens have taken over Earth and domesticate humans by using the media as mind control, and it's a narrative that's evergreen and well worth ripping off. The premise of 'Branded' is that corporations have invaded peoples lives unknowingly, and after watching the trailer for it you get the sense that the filmmakers wanted to take the ideas of 'They Live' further.
