Have A Quick Look At The ‘Super 8' Alien In This New Viral Video

OF COURSE there's a 'Super 8' viral Easter Egg video. [post-album postid="215508" item="1"]Those not fortunate enough to get an early look at Super 8 (and subsequently berate it) are likely curious about the film's secrets and what the alien looks like and if Kyle Chandler is nice or not and does JJ Abrams work out and if so how does he find the time. Well, this video should help with some of those questions. Over the last few months, clips from a 1960's secret military video were released to various websites. Now on the day of the film's early release, those clips have been pieced together and feature the early scientific research into the film's alien. Be advised that the video contains minor plot spoilers as well as a glimpse of the alien. If you want to see the film with fresh eyes, don't watch the video. But please pour over my words and tell me if you see us sealing the deal tonight. I mean, c'mon. Bus rides and extra value meals add up, you know. (Yahoo)

See A Super New Clip From 'Super 8'

Production value! Super 8 is in the midst of a big promotional push from Paramount. As part of that push, they've released yet another clip from the movie, this one showing that wacky gang of movie-making kids taking advantage of that train that explodes and runs off the tracks, setting the wheels of the mysterious plot in motion. Enjoy, and remember: Don't mess around with trains. They're dangerous even when they're not exploding. [post-video postid="212982"]


‘Super 8' Gets A ‘Goonies’-esque Clip

Kids do the darndest things. Like videotaping vast governmental cover-ups. This edited clip (but not really a trailer) from Super 8 set to The Cars' "Bye Bye Love" doesn't really offer much new insight into the story being told, but does slant it in a new fashion. Rather than roll with the standard J.J. Abrams "We're gonna confuse and tease the hell out of you so you are frustrated into the theater," this clip (and the odd song pairing) creates a more whimsical, coming-of-age ambiance. [post-video postid="211813"] I really don't think that this avenue is Abrams' strong suit, but with Spielberg on board, perhaps some nostalgia slipped into the film. This is a manipulated 30-second clip, compared to lots of footage that show's this as a more conventional supernatural thriller, so I'm not convinced this isn't just for marketing. Nonetheless, it still makes the movie look pretty awesome.


An Alien Runs Amok In New ‘Super 8' Trailer

Soon, JJ Abrams transformation into Steven Spielberg will be complete. Soon, JJ Abrams transformation into Steven Spielberg will be complete. The new trailer for Super 8 wears Spielberg on its sleeve more than Spielberg and gives us more than we could have ever hoped for. The plot follows a group of kids who witness a train derailment and the escape of its strange cargo. Mysterious disappearances then plague their small town while the Army patrols the streets without providing any answers. Then things go insane. It looks like this summer's biggest hit without a doubt.


New ‘Super 8' Trailer: Still No Creature

Maybe the monster is actually invisible. Think about that. [post-album postid="214221" item="1"]Last night, Super 8 stars Joel Courtney and Elle Fanning appeared at the "MTV Movie Awards" alongside total oldsters JJ Abrams and Stephen Spielberg to present a new trailer. Once again, we don't see the monster or creature or alien or whatever it is that is tearing this small town to shreds. But we do get to see a small town get torn to shreds. So there's that!! This film just keeps looking better and better and I'm really looking forward to seeing it this weekend. It is such a tease though to not show the creature thingamabob. Is it done intentionally to build buzz? Or is there another reason. Perhaps it has boobs for a face. I guess we'll find out on Friday.


New ‘Paul’ Clips: Kristen Wiig’s A Lot Funnier After Smoking Alien Weed

Comic-Con, secret government alien (?) weed, girl-on-robot sex: these are the topics that all movies should be discuss. We've got some new clips from Team Hot Fuzz's upcoming film Paul (courtesy of British sites Empire and Sky). Simon Pegg and Nick Frost never fail to disappoint, though I have to admit, I've had my doubts about this project. No Edgar Wright directing, an alien that's just Seth Rogen as an alien (they could have slapped some antennae on him and saved a space ton of CG money) and a big part for Kristen Wiig, the SNL cast member who I've fast-forwarded past so many times, my TiVO does it for me now. However, in these clips, I can see the elements working together nicely. Comic-Con, secret government alien (?) weed, girl-on-robot sex: these are the topics that all movies should discuss. Plus director Greg Mottola shot Superbad, which I continue to McLovin, despite how dated that reference has already become. Paul will beam you into theaters March 18. (JoBlo)


See New 'Cowboys & Aliens' Super Bowl Ad Without Having To Watch Super Bowl

I just saved you, like, 7 hours. One of the main issues I have with the Super Bowl is the lack of cowboys, aliens, laser guns, and Harrison Ford. So I had mixed emotions about the prospect of a new Cowboys & Aliens Super Bowl spot - on the one hand, yeah, it probably has all those things. On the other hand, I'd have to sit through untold hours of lame beer ads, awful musical performances from senior citizens, and a few minutes of football in order to see it. Imagine my relief when I saw the ad appearing on the internet! And in the spirit of friendship, I now present the ad to you as well. Think about it - I just saved you, like, 7 hours. What are you going to do with it? I'm gonna watch the Super Bowl! (via SlashFilm)


New ‘Super 8' Clip: Kids Are Afraid Of Guns And Monsters

Children are such scaredy cats when it comes to guys with bloody faces pointing guns at them. Children are such scaredy cats when it comes to guys with bloody faces pointing guns at them. That's what we learn from the newest clip from J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated Super 8. The preview above takes place after the train crash. The kids are poking around the wreckage, hanging out, finding important maps 'n' stuff, when all of a sudden - bam - crazy guy with a bunch of guns. Man, Super 8 is reminding me of Goonies more and more. It's about kids on an adventure, one of them's a tubbo, it's produced by Steven Spielberg, and now there's an important map. I hope the monster turns out to be a giant Sloth. Next clip airs tomorrow on Fox during "American Idol."
