Cool 'Super 8' Interactive Trailer Unveiled in 'Portal 2' Video Game
Aside from the fact that we've already seen an explosive teaser trailer, an awesome Super Bowl TV spot, and a breathtaking full length trailer for this summer's mysterious film Super 8 from J.J. Abrams, this new video promoting the film is one of the coolest pieces of marketing I've ever seen. Valve, the company behind the video game Portal and the recently released sequel Portal 2, have created an interactive trailer of sorts which places the player on the train that so ceremoniously and explosively crashes in the aforementioned trailers. Essentially, it's like being on the set of Super 8 if the film were turned into a video game. See below!
Here's a walkthrough of the interactive Super 8 trailer courtesy of Kotaku:
Relationships are tested when a small town experiences extraordinarily fantastic "other-worldly" events. This sci-fi film stars: Zach Mills, Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Noah Emmerich and Ron Eldard.
Super 8 is both written and directed by visionary director J.J. Abrams, who started his career with "Lost" and "Alias" before first directing Mission: Impossible III then Star Trek last summer. This is being produced by Steven Spielberg at Amblin, Relativity and Bad Robot. According to early reports, this was inspired by Spielberg's sci-fi films from the 70's and 80's. Paramount will be bringing Super 8 to theaters everywhere starting June 10th this summer. You can stay up-to-date by visiting: super8-movie.com.
