A better look at the Super 8 trailer gives us our first hidden clues

05.11.2010

Originally we posted the bootleg trailer of SUPER 8 that premiered before IRON MAN 2 on Friday.

The bootleg obviously was decent cam quality, but it was a bit on the dark side nonetheless. Today, Apple released the trailer in glorious high quality, if it wasn't for this we would never find what was hidden within.

Check out the trailer again, then skip below for all the hidden stuff. To get an even closer look, head to Apple to see the trailer in HD.

Thanks heavens for Bloody Disgusting because I would have never seen this since I'm severely optically challenged. Right when the footage drops into the lens before the title card an image of a boy shows up:

Who is this boy?

Wait, there's more: A SUPER 8 fansite got a heads up that unfiction forums uncovered words within the trailer, "scariest thing I ever saw". They then decided to punch those words in leading them to a website which you can check out for yourself here.

A virtual PDP-11 computer pops up, if you prompt it to print you will get an interesting surprise message on your end. Also try clicking the second icon that appears to be a Xerox machine. I'm lame and don't have a printer so you'll have to check it out for me. To read the full details on the discoveries head to the fansite.

Extra Tidbit: If you uncover anything else, let us know and I will update.

Korny:
Definitely looks like some kind of fetus. Or ghost. Or ghost fetus. But it could also just be smoke. My guess is that whatever was trapped in the train is a human infected by something, and that they're related to whoever decided to drive their truck into the train.

Alien fetus in the trailer?

If you pause the trailer 14 seconds in, theres a frame after the train going past of some alien fetus. It's the frame before the text reading "in 1979, the U.S Air force closed a secton of Area 51.."

I really love Abrams advertising. To me, the guys has probably the best viral campaigns around. Kind of sucks we have to wait a whole year before we get to see this thing. Will probably have to wait at least six months to get an official synopsis, or something like that.

I got the print out

After messing around with the scariestthingieversaw site I got to the point where I could print something off from one of the yellow squares. This is what printed:

STOP POSTING PUBLICLY. I CAN ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. I HAVE PROOF.

Freaky shit, man.

I know this is just the teaser, but I think the cloverfeild trailer did a better job than this. I mean, how many times have we seen a monster banging on a door about to break through? I'll probably eat my words when the movie comes out, but for now I'm not that impressed.

Interesting. Abrams is really good at playing the simple fact that WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW, or are NOT SPOON FED is more interesting than all else when he markets his product.

Why didn't they show this at the IMAX iron man 2 screenings? Looks cool, and Abrams hasn't disappointed me yet so I'm looking forward to this.

X-KID, Super 8 is a low-grade type of film stock commonly seen in home videos from decades past. The presence of a camera lens at the end of this trailer suggests that the title refers to this type of film stock.

I got to the Print prompt key and pressed P, but it has yet to do anything.
