Interactive trailer for 'Super 8' featured in 'Portal 2' video game
Wednesday 20 April 2011
An interactive trailer for J.J. Abrams's super-secret film Super 8 has been included in the PC version of the video game adventure
Portal 2, released on April 19.
A "walk-through" of this Super 8 footage is available as a special feature showing the interior of train boxcars in which an alien from Area 51 is apparently being transported.
Abrams, who directed Star Trek and co-produced the television series Lost, has worked with cross-promotional ideas and viral marketing on Lost and the film Cloverfield.
A YouTube video shows the zooms and other features, allowing a peek at details before and after the train crash, as shown in the conventional trailer. Portal 2 gamers can play the role of a passenger on board.
As reported in MTV, this feature could indicate there may be a Super 8 video game.
Starring Elle Fanning (
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and newcomer Joel Courtney, the story follows small town kids who witness a train crash and discover the terrifying truth behind the so-called accident.
The film, produced by Steven Spielberg, will be released June 10 in North America and rolls out in international markets through July and August.
