Super 8

Hmm.

After the Aladygma hoax, I was really hoping we could get something on Cloverfield 2.

This looks mildly interesting.

This played before IM2. Some CLOSE ENCOUNTERS imagery coupled with a JURASSIC PARK vibe. Intriguing but I hope the whole thing isn't as derivative.

It feels like a Cloverfield prequel, at least to explain where it came from. And if they actually film it in Super 8, that could be interesting.

The official answer, apparently, is no, this not related to CLOVERFIELD. The fact that Abrams is directing kind of lends an air of truth to that statement. Plus, Speal-burg is involved. By the way, in case anyone was wondering, I hated Abram's STAR TREK reboot.

I was bored with it, but this catches my interest.

I guess I'm in a good mood after the movie last night. It ruled. Though, I've got a feeling my review was totally incoherent. A couple of beers and a head cold will do that.

...I even saw a Tie Fighter cameo.

Good catch. TIE Bomber, actually.

Yeah, I like how they don't actually reveal whatever the secret is.

The film, which takes place in the summer of 1979, features a group of friends from a small town in Ohio who capture something not of this Earth on their Super 8 camera after a devastating train crash.

Super 8 Will Shake Up Some Moviegoers With ‘Motion Effects’ Seating

Moviegoers in select cities will be able to shake, rattle, roll and levitate in their seats as they watch J.J. Abrams’ summer sci-fi thriller Super 8 .

Screenings are slated to take place in about 50 North American theaters that are outfitted with D-Box Motion Code seats. The “motion effects” technology activates pitch, roll and heave movements that shift audience members up, down and sideways in their chairs.

“The content of this new picture is an ideal match for our incredibly realistic motion effects,” D-Box Technologies CEO Claude McMaster said in a statement. The Canadian company also enables on-screen actions to trigger what it calls “intelligent vibrations” for audience members.

Produced by Steven Spielberg, Super 8 tells the story of kids who make home movies before stumbling upon a government cover-up of mysterious events involving aliens. The movie (see trailer below) opens June 10.

So, apparently someone has seen Matinee and The Tingler.
