    Super 8 is a Movie Made by JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg. If you're a trailer person then not much has come out about the movie since then, but if you're a viral person you are in luck.



    VIRAL SITES



    www.RocketPoppeteers.com


    It's Basically like the slusho from Cloverfield, Just for Super 8. It's a Fictional Popsicle Company made for the movie, They basically have this thing goin on where they were looking for Rocket Poppeteer Astronauts and when you sent in this newspaper clipping you got special goodies from This site. I Got a Certificate mailed to me And a Letter Saying i was accepted into some program. Maybe im gettin some more shit soon but who knows?

    You can sign up for the astronaut stuff in the poppeteers link. I don't know if youll get the certificate and stuff though.





    www.scariestthingieversaw.com


    This is another Viral Site for the movie, It basically pretends to be a VNC server or something to someones computer. If you know some programming commands and stuff you can operate around the console a bit. It's full of movie information about one guy, and apparently once in a while some guy posts stuff on craigslist about this stuff (i don't know if he's doin it anymore). Also if you have a printer it prints out some cool image stuff and all that. Also apparently the guy on the computer vanished.


    SUPER 8 EDITING ROOM

    http://www.s8editingroom.com/


    Basically a editing room for footage. Scientists talk about some weird being.



    Shit to look out for


    Three Dots






    the 3 Dots logo is apparently part of a a powerful Entity in the movie's universe. Above is a military Vehicle marked with the 3 Dots. They are related with the US Military in some way. Probably a Secret Service-Esque thing. You can also find it on this image of a Air Force guy (Possibly the Father of the guy who's computer is on scariest thing i ever saw) here:
    http://www.super8news.com/images/A01.jpg




    Random Appearances By Rocket Poppeteers at Popular Conventions/Events








    Above is the rocket Poppeteers van near when Comic-con 2010 was goin on. They Made a Flash Appearance Selling Rocket Poppeteer Popsicles and giving people Free shirts for Singing their theme song, They Dressed in 50's Attire and other stuff. At The New York Comicon they put up posters about Limited Edition Stuff and buying it this winter(??)





    So when can we expect another trailer?

    news is spreading around of a trailer Appearing either at the Superbowl or in March (Or both). Not Much Else.

    The viral marketing was the best part of Cloverfield, the actual film was a little lame.

    This kinda feels like a scenario in which SCP would get involved. But I wonder what class specimen the thing in the container is, Euclid or Keter? Probably Keter, as they make for more dramatic and fatality-ridden events.

    Just watched the Superbowl Trailer.
    It makes the movie feel a lot less mysterious.
    I was pumped when I saw the first trailer. Now...not so much.

    Edited:

    At least it doesn't look like it's filmed like Cloverfield was.

    Ok so how the fuck does a train completely explode and derail after hitting a truck. The truck would have been completely destroyed (which it was) while the train would barely have a scratch.

    Saw the trailer during the Super Bowl. I can now confirm that I was right in thinking that the movie got its name from Super 8 camera film as there was a Super 8 camera in the trailer.

    It's like a cross between Cloverfield and E.T.


    Except E.T. seems to be evil now.

    From the trailer, it almost looks like Steven Spielberg directed it.

    I read on wikipedia it's supposed to be a homage to Steve's 70's 80's sci-fi/adventure stuff.
