With over a year until release, Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot are already hard at work promoting the J.J. Abrams/Steven Spielberg collaboration Super 8, their 80’s-esque Amblin homage that is said to follow a bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera in the seventies or eighties. When they develop the film, they notice that there’s an alien creature in the frame. The latest viral once again is related to the “Rocket Poppeteers”: “Remember, kids: Real Spacemen Love Rocket Poppeteers!!!”
All of the following comes courtesy of Super 8 News:
“It appears as though some of our readers have gotten a surprise in the mail today in the form of a letter from Captain “Coop” Cooper and The Rocketpoppeteers! I’ve included screenshots, thanks to Charlie, and I’ve transcribed the text below in case you can’t read it on the screenshot. Thanks again for posting these in the comments, at the moment nothing seems to strike as “hidden” or “significant” in the letter.
