Super 8 on the Imax


Imax is coming to Trinidad and Tobago but more specifically, One Woodbrook Place, which is way over budget was built by The HCL Group of Companies, a member of the notorious CL Financial Group. Most Trinis who will be able to easily afford a ticket to see an Imax movie locally are those who have already experienced how good an Imax movie looks and feels in countries they have funneled scarce US dollars to buy a second or third house. They are probably the ones who are also quick to complain that there is a shortage of US dollars. The rest of us will have to start a lay away plan or win tickets on a radio show competition.

I predict notwithstanding the infamy and drain on the local econpomy of One Woodbrook Place, the Imax will do well once the economy does well and the economy will do ok once there is good gas, oil, methanol, ammonia and urea prices coupled with low or no wage increases for all public sector workers.

Naturally, the local Imax will be showing all the latest block buster special effects movies and one I hope to be seeing locally or even overseas is Super 8. It was written and directed by JJ Abrams and produced by Stephen Spielberg. That combination plus a fantastic trailer will ensure Super 8 sells out our local Imax despite high ticket and popcorn prices.

Synopsis

In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.
