15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Super 8

There's but one simple rule in life that we live by: Never look at JJ Abrams' IMDb page. The only thing it ever does is make you feel like you haven't quite done enough with your time on Earth. But just this once, with a deep breath, we took a peek at what he's got coming up. He's tied to Star Wars projects, Star Trek projects, a Cloverfield sequel, Mission Impossible 5, as well as movie versions of Half-Life and Portal!

We stopped short of looking at his back catalogue, we were running out of air, but perhaps our favourite movie he has made is Super 8. It's brilliant, that much we know, but what about the movie don't we know? Here's 15 things. If you knew them all, your name's probably JJ Abrams.
