Turns out the upcoming film based on Matell's Magic 8 Ball product is arriving sooner than expected. New reports* suggest J.J. Abrams top-secret project Super 8 features a giant Magic 8 Ball terrorizing the city of New York. No information is given as to where this "creature" came from. Or why it's rolling around killing innocent civilians. What is known is that the film takes place through the eyes of a group of teenagers living in the city. Caught in the midst of the attack, they must work together to escape before it's too late. Unnecessary, violently-shaking first-person camera perspectives will be used throughout. See the trailer here.
*I base this on absolutely nothing.
