The official trailer for Super 8 is now online. Either check out the embedded version above or head on over to Apple (at the link below) and check out the HD versions. It should be much easier to tear this one apart and get a clearer view of what we're looking at, so get digging!

Thanks for the heads up Zavin and BuddhasWarrior.

The Firefight in Dulce, NM

I wanted to get my own research in before I posted on this topic because honestly I'd never heard of it, and thanks to Christian in the comments for bringing it to my attention. So lets jump into exactly what the Firefight in Dulce, NM was, or at least what people say it was.

In 1979 in Dulce, NM it is said that there was a firefight between 69 members of the secret service, FBI, Black Berets and the like, and large alien humanoids. 66 of the U.S. agents died in the fight and there were 3 survivors. One of those survivors, Phil Schneider, came forward to tell his story to the public and was found dead 7 months later.  His body was found in his apartment with piano wire wrapped around his neck and visible signs of being tortured before being killed....

At the lecture, Phil talked about all sorts of things related to secret government projects and conspiracies along with the information pertaining to the Firefight in Dulce, NM. In his story he says that they surprised a group of 70 "large greys" and in the end all of them were killed and there were only 3 survivors from the government, Phil being one of them. He does say that he was shot in the chest by an alien weapon that had subsequently given him cancer and possibly only a few months to live, which is probably why he felt he could come forward with his story. I have pasted the section of his lecture regarding The Firefight in Dulce, MN below, but there are other interesting things in the source link that make for a very interesting read.

If this is related to Super 8 in anyway, my theory is that The Firefight in Dulce, NM happened, but not all the alien humanoids were killed as Phil suspected. At least one survived and the government realized that they needed to move it to a more secure location, Wright Air Force Base, but obviously someone didn't want the train to make it there. Could it be that one of the other 2 survivors of the Firefight is the driver of the truck we see in the trailer trying to run the train off the tracks, thus killing the creature that killed the 66 men (and possibly women) during the firefight? Seems like a possible theory, but I'd love to hear yours..

The Fire Fight at Dulce Base

"Back in 1954, under the Eisenhower administration, the Federal government decided to circumvent the Constitution of the United States and form a treaty with alien entities. It was called the 1954 Greada treaty, which basically made the agreement that the aliens involved could take a few cows and test their implanting techniques on a few human beings, but that they had to give details about the people involved. Slowly, the aliens altered the bargain until they decided they wouldn't abide by it at all. Back in 1979, this was the reality and the fire fight at Dulce occurred quite by accident. I was involved in building an addition to the deep underground military base at Dulce, which is probably the deepest base. It goes down seven levels and over 2.5 miles deep.

At that particular time, we had drilled four distinct holes in the desert and we were going to link them together and blow out large sections at a time. My job was to go down the holes and check the rock samples, then recommend the explosive to deal with a particular rock. As I was headed down there , we found ourselves amidst a large cavern that was full of outer-space aliens, otherwise known as large Greys. I shot two of them. At that time, there were 30 people down there.

About 40 more came down after this got started and all of them got killed. We had surprised a whole underground base of existing aliens. Later, we found out that they had been living on our planet for a long time, perhaps a million years. This could explain a lot of what is behind the theory of ancient astronauts."

"Anyway I got shot in the chest with one of their weapons, which was a box on their body, that blew a hole in me and gave me a nasty dose of cobalt radiation. I have had cancer because of that."

"I didn't get really interested in UFO technology until I started work at Area 51, north of Las Vegas. After about two years recuperating after the 1979 incident, I went back to work for Morrison and Knudson, EG&G and other companies. At Area 51, they were testing all kinds of spacecraft. How many people here are familiar with Bob Lazar's story? He was a physicist working at Area 51 trying to decipher the propulsion factor in some of these craft".

Would You Guys Like a Forum?

When I ran a few years ago I had a section of another forum setup specifically for Cloverfield News and chatter, but I have since dissolved that site so there is no more forum. So my question to you guys is, would you use a forum dedicated to this movie? I know the comments can be a little confusing when it comes to responding to people, etc and forums can be easier, but on my end it could be a lot of work (moderating and keeping those pesky spammers out). However, if you guys feel like it would be a useful tool in helping find and talk about information regarding this movie, I'd be happy to set one up.

So let me know in the comments here if you feel like you'd use it if I set it up, thanks. And again, thanks to all those that have made their way here and either commented, emailed me or just read the site, I appreciate it.

Update: Ok, I decided just to set it up anyways, whether it gets much use or not. Please let me know if you think there should be different categories or if something isn't working for you.

Alien Sighting in the Trailer?

At the 22 second mark in the trailer this screenshot was pulled showing what could possibly be an alien figure off to the left side of the screen. It appears to be the face/head of what most people would describe as an alien being. It is gray and has a large skull and larger oval shaped eyes. Now, I'm not sure what we're seeing here, it could just be smoke playing tricks on our eyes, but it does sort of resemble an alien. However, that being said, I don't think this is the creature that is trying to break out of the box car on the train. The creature contained within that car seems to be a lot more powerful and probably a lot bigger than just an alien being. I think we're going to be looking at an actual creature and not just an alien "humanoid" when all is said and done.

So again, this could just be our eyes playing tricks on us and our brains making us see what we want to see, but it's the start of the campaign so I figured that everything is fair game for right now until we can prove otherwise (possible with an official version of the trailer).  So what do you guys think?

Thanks Brett for commenting on this and user wildoofsmeg at unfiction for the screenshot.

Update: commenter Kidanny has posted up another screenshot which some are saying looks more like an alien than the above, but honestly the more I look at both of them it just looks like smoke or the middle of a transition in the frame, but you be the judge. I've posted Kidanny's screenshot after the jump.

What Happens When The Counter Ends?

If you've been following the posts today regarding "Super 8" and it's viral campaign, you know that there is somewhat of a countdown going on over at and the big question is, what will the screen show when the countdown ends? Well you don't have to wait until then to find out... kind of.

Someone in an IRC channel associated with unfiction (if you know who please let me know so I can give them credit) managed to download the .swf file from that website and pull out what will happen at the end of the cycle. It doesn't give us any clues as to what really happens next, but you can at least see what the screen will look like at the end of it. So I don't think this is too much of a spoiler of anything. The only thing I can gather from this screenshot is that the "AF" in "AF FILE LIBRARY" may stand for Air Force, which would make my assumption that D. Morris stands for Dan Morris, since he was a Master Sergeant in the Air Force.
