Leave it Abrams to start thinking about another project before he's finished this one, but it looks like there may be another super-secret movie in the works.... and guess what, I'm already on top of it. Head on over to www.zanbatonews.com to catch up on the very little, very new, news regarding "Zanbato" an Abrams project revolving around "swashbuckling robots with swords"... or so the rumors say.

There's not much information at this point and don't expect another viral to pop up anytime soon, but I'll keep my eye out for any information and post it there so you don't have to scour around for it. And of course that site is brand new so things will change over there once I have some time and once the Super 8 stuff has calmed down since this has all my attention for the moment.

How cool is this! A special interactive trailer for "Super 8" can be found in the Portal 2 game that was just released. It basically puts you into the train that crashes in the trailer, allowing you to walk around and look at things. You can't interact with anything, but it's still pretty freakin cool!

I don't have the Portal 2 game so I can't run around and take screenshots, but lucky for me xi_wolf at unfiction did just that. Check them out here.

Super 8 Package Arrives In The Mail!

That's right folks! Just like all those other big movie sites out there, we have been included in the physical viral marketing of this movie. I received a package today that contained exactly what you've seen on the other sites already: A roll of Super 8 film which contains a clip of our favorite scientist, along with a USB stick containing a video file of said clip, and of course the little card that shows me how to unlock this clip for all to see on s8editingroom.com

So instead of just posting up pictures of the box and film canister I decided I wanted to include all of you guys in the process of actually opening it and discovering what's inside (even though we already know). This site would be nothing without you guys so I figured this was a good way to try and include those of you that will not receive one of these :(.

The clip appears to be #79 indicated by the file name "EX_1A_079". And should be unlocked on s8editingroom.com shortly.

It appears as though the folks behind the "Super 8" viral have decided that a good way to drop more clues is to mail out mysterious packages containing film reels as well as flash drives with video clips! What a cool idea, maybe there will be one waiting in my mailbox when I get home ;). No worries though, the guys over at Slashfilm have received their package and have taken the time to post what they know. There is a short video clip as well as some pictures of the film strip and old super 8 film box over on their site, go check it out now!

Update: The video clip that Slashfilm was sent is now available on the s8editingroom.com site. It seems to me that when a person receives a clip they can email that email address with that code (go to their site to see what I'm talking about) and once that video is unlocked it shows up on s8editingroom.com.

Update: Clip #23 has now been unlocked as well. It appears that it was sent in the mail just like the slashfilm one, but this time it was sent to the website io9.com

Update: comingsoon.net has received a new clip.

Update: We have joined the ranks of those sites mentioned above. A package was delivered today containing what appears to be clip #79. Check it out here.
