3 dots on truck

If you've been following the last post on the site regarding the chat log that recently appeared on the scariest thing I ever saw website then you may recognize a symbol on the truck above. During the chat log Josh mentions a canister with "3 dots" on it. Some people have left some comments saying that they have seen trucks driving around Weirton (where the movie is/was being filmed) with 3 dots on them... and now we have photographic evidence thanks to "BuzzMan". There also appears to be a shot showing JJ Abrams in the back of a truck as well as Kyle Chandler walking through the street.

BuzzMan sent quite a few great pictures so head on over to the gallery to see the rest of them!

Commence Filming!

You guys are awesome! I love the fact that my email is blowing up with all of these pictures from the Super 8 filming, keep em coming. I'm going to try to setup a more organized album on the site a little later today so I can make it easy to view all of these, but for now I've tagged every posted that contains pictures of Weirton with a special tag. So if you click on the link in the sidebar that says "Behind the Scenes Pics" you will find all of the images related to the filming in Weirton. That was easier than I thought it would be, check out the new gallery!

With that said, here are some more pictures of actual filming that is taking place thanks to atlas3434. Thanks again.

UPDATE: Tons more pictures sent to us thanks to Dee, but instead of making a new post every time I get pictures I've just added them to the gallery. Check em out!

Last night around 9 pm I watched them a film 1 of the scenes for the movie. The scene shows the long blonde haired girl riding a bike down a little hill turning right heading up the street, then seconds later a mustang or camaro comes flying down, slams on the breaks, and peels to the right (looks like chasing her) I took a few photos of the street..they had lights of all different colors to make it super white and a few to make it look like dusk...Along with cars from the 70s park all on the road.

More Super 8 Casting News

super 8 casting news

Looks like the veil of secrecy is starting to lift surrounding Super 8 and the first things to be revealed are the cast. Yesterday I posted an article about Elle Fanning and Kyle Chandler joining the cast of Super 8 and now it looks like we have a few more cast members.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee and Zach Mills have all joined the cast of Super 8.

And on a side note, take this as you will, I have had multiple people email me from Weirton saying that Brad Pitt has been spotted in town. I'm a little skeptical about this, but you never know, stranger things have happened. Thanks to all those that sent in this tip and keep the pictures coming!
