Ashley Greene (Twilight) is set to topline alongside Stephen McHattie, Barbara Niven and Peter Mooney, who will all play the deranged kinfolk that Greene’s character encounters on her quest to find the father she’s never known.
Xbox Live’s annual Summer of Arcade is almost upon us with the first game, the action RPG Bastion, ready to kick start this shindig on July 20th. Last year brought us fantastic games like the gloomy puzzle platformer Limbo and Tomb Raider: Guardian of the Light and this year shaping up to be even better. Like last year we have five very different arcade games, ranging from god sims to strategy games, so there’s bound to be something for every type of gamer.
Last year’s reward for purchasing every game under the Summer of Arcade banner was a bundle of Microsoft Points, but this year thing’s are being handled a little differently. Now, if you buy every game you’ll get Crimson Alliance for free when it releases in September. It’s essentially Torchlight with four player co-op, so if that’s your thing and you have $70 to spare on five arcade games, it’s a pretty worthy bonus. Head past the jump for the full list of games, their prices, and what they’re all about. READ MORE
Shifting away from the “scary” elements of the teaser and Super Bowl TV Spot, the brand new IMAX trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 bleeds Steven Spielberg films such as Goonies, E.T. and War of the Worlds, focusing on the kids more than the apparent creature. Something interesting to note is the references to “magnetism,” which also kind of reminds me of Joe Dante’s classic The Explorers. I honestly believe we have have a “true” Amblin production on our hands…
Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills, AJ Michalka all star in the Paramount pic that begins “In the summer of 1979, when a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.”
The footage will be re-spooled on June 10th.
We don’t give enough credit to the people who make viral discoveries (wink, wink), so without further adieu a big thumbs up to Latino Review who observed some interesting footage hiding within s8editingroom.com, the Super 8 viral site that’s been online for over a week now.
Doing some serious detective work, the site writes: “it’s not an alien, monster or creature.
It may be an energized living object similar to the 1997′s “Flubber” with Robin Williams. We’re not saying it is a rubber-like super-bouncy substance, but it is an object.”
The evidence is prevalent in the hidden images, and trailer, that can be dissected over at Latino Review. Go check it out and then return here to comment. Did they stumble onto something?
J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 arrives in theaters June 10 from Paramount Pictures.
Paramount Pictures has launched the official Twitter page for J.J. Abrams’ Super 8. While they spent the morning blowing up my phone with unnecessary retweets (I wouldn’t recommend following them if my life depended on it), they did use the social networking platform to release the second full trailer for the sci-fi horror film.
The trailer screams ’80s Steven Spielberg (as it was produced by his Amblin company) and looks to once again carry some hidden clues. What do you see?
Just yesterday we were supplied with the following synopsis for the flick arriving in theaters June 10: “In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.”
I’m sincerely curious as to what you guys think so far. Am I the only one who is over-the-top excited?
We’ve spent weeks attempting to assemble the pieces of footage hiding within each updated Super Bowl TV Spot for J.J. Abrams’ Super 8. I guess, just like old NES games, the fun is the gameplay and not the conclusion.
The latest update to the trailer has revealed said imagery in full — no more connecting the three dots. Inside you’ll see exactly what was hiding within the frames of one of this summer’s biggest movies. Does any of it mean anything to you? Post your theories inside.
In theaters June 10, the Steven Spileberg/J.J. Abrams collaboration follows a bunch of kids in the ’70s who are shooting a zombie movie with a Super 8. When they develop the film, they notice that there’s an alien creature in the frame.
And so the games continue!
We checked in with Apple.com this morning and stumbled across 5 brand new puzzle pieces for J.J. Abrams’ Super 8. For those of you just catching up, Paramount Pictures has been switching out the Super Bowl TV Spot with new versions containing secret images that can be assembled to reveal clues. The images have 3 dots that help aid the connection of said pictures. Inside you’ll find every clue thus far, including the 5 new screen grabs.
The J.J. Abrams/Steven Spielberg collaboration that is said to follow a bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera in the seventies or eighties – and when they develop the film they notice that there’s an alien creature in the frame. In theaters June 10 from Paramount Pictures.
I have a feeling some of you guys are going to want to boycott Paramount’s Super 8 by the time it’s all said and done, but in all honesty this is some brilliant stuff. Over the past few months we here at Bloody Disgusting have been keeping a close eye on all virals surrounding the J.J. Abrams/Steven Spielberg collaboration. In fact, there’s so much stuff you haven’t seen that most of you would probably thank me for not stirring the pot (hidden maps, actual referenced locations, and hidden database files).
Yesterday we accidentally stumbled onto one of the coolest viral games ever initiated, and many loyal Super 8 followers have already (sorta) deciphered the code – yet they still missed a few beats (we’ll help you out). Per our report, Apple.com has been constantly changing the HD files for the Super Bowl TV Spot. What does this mean? Each trailer appears to be the same, but it’s completely different. Dates appear and vanish, images appear and vanish; this has been going on for 24 hours now. Inside you’ll find a collection of the puzzle pieces, but I’d like to make this important additional note: the pieces are connected by the three dots on each image, therefore some of these aren’t connected correctly.
Keep your eyes peeled (so will we) and feel free to e-mail us with any major discoveries that we’ve missed.
It’s no secret that J.J. Abrams likes secrets, hence the reason why I originally panned frame by frame through the Super Bowl Super 8 trailer. I came across the date September/November/December 19, 1962 (on November 19 Fidel Castro accepts removal of Soviet weapons), while also dwelling on a frame that may or may not have been a reflection of the film’s alien creature.
Well, I decided to revisit the trailer on Apple only to discover that the Super Bowl spot has been replaced!!! The new trailer has the date, the billboard of “Lost” references, and what looks like the monster’s jaw all removed. Did we catch on quicker than they expected? Go watch the new trailer and see if you can’t find any fresh clues. Journey beyond the break to see all of the early freeze-framed stills. Paramount will release on June 10.
Ready for a third story featuring Paramount Pictures’ Super 8? No? What’s wrong with you (or maybe it’s just me?)
The LA Times caught up with director J.J. Abrams who finally gives us an idea of what we’ll see in theaters on June 10. This is the first time anyone involved has gone on record.
All we’ve heard, via Vulture, was that the Abrams/Steven Spielberg-Amblin collaboration is that it is said to follow a bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera in the seventies or eighties – and when they develop the film they notice that there’s an alien creature in the frame. Want to know more? Sure you do! Read on for the skinny, and to re-watch the Super Bowl TV spot (again), because you know you love it.
UPDATE: Watch the FULL TV Spot below featuring the first ever footage from ‘Super 8′!! Tell me it doesn’t look like classic Spielberg? Also, did anyone else see the date December 19, 1962 flash?
Excited for the Super Bowl? Some of you might actually care about the game, while the rest of America will chow down on chips, pizza, and wings just to watch three hours of commercials (and that’s a bit sad, don’t ya think?) Hours before kickoff, Bloody Disgusting already has a look at the “Superbowl TV Spot” for Paramount Pictures’ Super 8, the J.J. Abrams/Steven Spielberg collaboration that is said to follow a bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera in the seventies or eighties – and when they develop the film they notice that there’s an alien creature in the frame.
So far all that we’ve seen is this teaser trailer (that carried quite a few viral images hidden in individual frames) and a few behind-the-scenes videos of tanks trolling through suburbia. I wonder if there’s anything hiding within this brief tease? June 10th where are you?!
Paramount Pictures announced today that they’ll be releasing J.J. Abrams’ Super 8, his ’70s/’80s Amblin-esque collaboration with producer Steven Spielberg, in theaters on June 10, 2011. Starring Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills, and AJ Michalka, the sci-fi horror flick follows 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. You can get a brand new look behind-the-scenes of the suburban battleground by reading inside.
