Super 8 Trailer Uses Cocoon Music With A Hint Of Close Encounters

Super 8 Trailer Features Cocoon Music

I personally cannot wait for this movie.  Super 8 will feel very retro.  Set in the 70's this will feel like an old fashioned Spielberg movie and that's no bad thing.  directed by J. J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg, and starring Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka, and Kyle Chandler Super 8 hits theaters June 10, 2011

Set in 1979 Ohio, a group of six young children use a Super 8 camera to make their own zombie movie. One night while filming near a remote stretch of railroad tracks, the children witness a truck collide with an oncoming train leading to a catastrophic derailment. Amidst the fire and destruction, something inhuman emerge

Watch the trailer and feel all warm inside as we return to the 70's and 80's with a hint of Close Encounters and The Goonies.  The music in the trailer is from Cocoon composed by James Horner.  Enjoy.  I cannot wait!

  1. Rob, I couldn't agree with you more. This looks fantastic, and, as you say, very Spielberg in a good way. I like that its protagonist's appear to be children, its so long since we've had a film like that. I personally think JJ Abrams is going to be a bit special as a director, and him teaming with Spielberg can only be a good thing. Its out the day before I go on holiday, we must see it on the Friday, no choice, we must. Followed by curry off course. Bagman

  2. indeed. This movie requires us Geeks to unite and give this our full attention. We need more like this. The curry is a given.

  3. Which track or the Cocoon soundtrack is the music from ?

  4. It came from the track Ascension. I believe it has been slightly remixed to fit in with the trailer.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
