The Super 8 UNIVERSE - Inside A Mind

  • Published on: 27 February 2018
  • Super 8 was a film created by JJ Abrams and Steven Speilberg. Super 8 also had it's own ARG/Viral Marketing campaign, that told it's own story before the release of the Super 8 film. Today we're going to explore the Super 8 Universe! And by that, I mean, we're going to explore Super 8's Viral Marketing campaign and show you what you may have been unaware of in the build up to the Super 8 movie.

    It all started with a trailer that was played before Iron Man 2 in cinemas back in 2010. The Super 8 trailer featured a Super 8 camera lens that flashed "Scariestthingieversaw" people later found the website scariesthingieversaw.com. From then on, the Super 8 Viral marketing campaign had begun!

    Wait, if the kidnapper died by some sort of “energy” according to josh, and his dad had a connection with a monster and they experimented on an alternate energy source.. then does that mean the monster helped? If so, then cool

    The Super 8 Universe is the probably extended Cloverfield storyline and the discovery of one of the ailen's technologies on Earth.

    I had no idea that any of this was a thing. I liked Super 8 but honestly this ARG intrigued me more.
