Jj Abrams' highly anticipated new sci-fi movie 'Super 8' is set to hit screens tomorrow (9th June 2011), one day before it officially opens in theatres, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Jj Abrams film will have a limited release on Thursday following a partnership with social networking site Twitter.
The partnership will see 'Super 8' screened in 300 theatres tomorrow, including 239 Imax locations. Twitter have designated the hash-tag 'Super8Secret' to help promote the 'secret screenings'. Fans wishing to see the movie early can purchase tickets through the micro-blogging website, and will be entitled to free popcorn with any concessions ticket. The promotion continues the partnership between Twitter and Paramount Pictures first forged in March, when Twitter premiered the first trailer of the movie. Directed by Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg, 'Super 8' follows a group of friends who witness a horrific train crash while making an independent movie. The film stars Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler and Ryan Lee.
Jj Abrams is perhaps best known as the co-creator of ABC's acclaimed series 'Lost'.
