Super 8 website and viral site
This new movie already has an official site at www.super8-movie.com, but not much going on there for now, but you can register for updates.
However, as this is a JJ Abrams project, there is more to it. Close examination of frames from the trailer reveals the url for another site www.scariestthingieversaw.com. And there is some interesting stuff going on there. When you first visit you are presented with a old style computer interface (circa 1979).
When you click through the interface eventually you get to what appears to be an application download, which is counting down.
The countdown seems to indicate there will some reveal on this site on May 15th.
