HDD Breaking News: Secret 'Super 8' Showings TONIGHT!

Posted Wed Jun 8, 2011 at 12:00 PM PDT by

Can't wait until Friday to see 'Super 8'? You're in luck! Twitter and Paramount Pictures have teamed up for the first-ever "Tweet Movie Sneak Preview" of 'Super 8' for one day only on over 300 IMAX and standard screens across the nation.

The ultra secret 'Super 8' sneak previews will be taking place on June 9, one day before the film's theatrical release. Since Twitter is partnering for the sneak previews, the only way you can find out about showing information is via Twitter. Go to the official page of the preview and share the info with your friends on Twitter by using #Super8Secret. Based on the screenings in our theatrical reviewer Luke Hickman's area, it looks like all secret screenings will be taking place late tonight at 12:01AM (technically falling on June 9).

Directed by J.J. Abrams ('Star Trek') and produced by Steven Spielberg ('Indiana Jones'), 'Super 8' is a widely anticipated adventure film that follows a group of children as an unknown beast forces a military take-over of their small town. Trailers and TV spots have revealed nearly nothing about the film, causing a curiosity to drive the pre-release buzz.

Since Luke is under embargo to not review 'Super 8' until it's opening, he can't yet tell you how great it is. What he can tell you is that he has already seen it twice, and he's contemplating going back to a secret screening in Salt Lake City tonight. 'Super 8' needs to be seen on the big screen. Check The Bonus View very soon for his review.
