Oooh now this is starting to get interesting. After debuting the first full trailer for J.J. Abrams' mysterious but incredible-looking new sci-fi Super 8 on Friday morning last week, Paramount finally released the high def version on Apple, and of course there's hidden clues found in the frames. In one of the final frames that flashes through the lens, there's a shot with a clearly written out web address: s8editingroom.com. That's the new viral site that basically launches an "editing room" containing a couple of "archival clips", not much. If you flick on the projector, it mostly says "Clip Missing", so there's still a lot we need to find/wait for this.
As always, we're not really sure what to do with site except look around and wait until more clips show up. For now there's just small chunks footage to watch, including a few quick glimpses of scientists conducting experiments on something. Maybe the kids in the movie find this film footage from the train wreck and start developing it, putting together this kind of scary story from "Area 51"? Not sure yet, but I'm excited/nervous/fascinated all at once by this Super 8 viral already. I like this new site a lot more than that server terminal from before. What curveball are you going to throw at us next, J.J.? We'll be sure to keep you guys updated!
