LOS ANGELES – June 10, 2011 – Quantum Mechanix Inc. (QMx) announced today that it has signed an agreement with Paramount Pictures to develop and market a full line of collectibles based on the hit movie, Super 8.
Written and directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg, Super 8 tells the story of a group of friends who, in the summer of 1979, witness a catastrophic train crash while filming a Super 8 movie. They soon come to suspect that the crash was not an accident, as unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in their small Ohio town.
QMx’s Super 8 license includes screen-accurate prop replicas, character maquettes, posters, apparel and novelties. The company is already hard at work on several products and will have prototypes on display at the QMx booth (#2944, #2950) at Comic-Con International 2011 San Diego in July.
