Another Mysterious 'Super 8' Film Reel Delivered to FS.net HQ Today

Super 8 Film Reel

Remember a few weeks ago, our friends at SlashFilm received a package in the mail containing an old Super 8 film reel and a note linking the package to J.J. Abrams' upcoming sci-fi movie Super 8? Well we just got one, too! A mysterious package was delivered today to FS.net HQ that contained another film reel and another black-and-white video clip, which goes into the depository in the virtual s8editingroom.com with more bits and pieces of footage. I've already submitted the unlock code as it requested and have embedded the clip below. Maybe we're finally getting close to unlocking some of the secrets of this ongoing ARG/viral?

My favorite part about the film reel box is that it actually has "Process Before May 76" printed on the side (see a photo), which is just too awesome. I love these kind of truly vintage virals, especially when they tie in directly with the story. Speaking of which, the clip that came with my reel seems to shed some more light on the history behind this "creature" which, as we all know, has come to menace the small Ohio town. It's only a few seconds long and a Lt. Col. with the Air Force is speaking at his desk and says only one line: "First is to provide an overview of the events leading up to the assault on technician 58-042." This obviously ties in with some of the laboratory footage already unlocked in the editing room, but I'm sure there's more to come.

That's all we've got for now on Super 8, but I definitely suggest checking out s8editingroom.com and seeing if there are any more updates or more clues that can be deciphered from all of the footage showing up. As always, we'll keep watching on Unfiction and elsewhere to see if any more mysterious Super 8 packages start showing up or if the Rocket Poppeteers part of the viral picks up again, too. Keep it coming, Bad Robot!

  • What was the unlock code, please.

    Agreed, why isn't the code shown? Unless there's a specific letter in the box saying "do not show publicly" then I would assume it's being sent out to media for the world to see...
    • Well it was meant for me to send in to that email address... I don't think they just want that code floating around, but I'm about to go post it on Unfiction anyway. I've had people try to hack my other viral accounts because I've showed too much info/codes in photos. :/

    "A mysterious package was delivered today to FS.net HQ" By that do you mean your house?
    • Yea, but it doesn't sound as cool to just say "my apartment." Plus, if you came and visited, with the amount of DVDs I own and movie collectibles I have here, this place definitely deserves to be called FS HQ!

    at the super 8 editing room... am i crazy for seeing Dr. Beardface in some of the other posted footage?

    Wait...did you get a different reel, different from the one /Film got? If so, that just awsome. Several people piecing together a background story is a cool way to promote this film. I hope noone that got a (different) reel didnt just go 'meh, garbage' and toss it out. But...it really wasnt that awsome now, hehe, from that picture above, it doesnt look like there is actually anything on the film? It would be so bad ass if you actually got a real reel of film and had to go find an old projector to view it's contents :)
    • Yea it was different, you can see the video I received embedded above. That's what we're trying to figure out, the backstory, with this editing room and clips, but it's slow to unlock everything since each clip is only 1 sec.
