You OK?

My head. I don't know

what's wrong. I can't sleep.

A pain back here? Like...

like something bit you?

Yeah. How do you know? You too?

Mark? Listen,

this may sound weird but...

is anyone else awake?

Is anyone having trouble

sleeping or something?

Mark, are you there?

Wait for me here. I'll go.


We all need to get out of here.

It's a psychic attack.

They're here! I tried

to make it back in time.

It's too late.


- No!

- Come on!

Remember your family.

Remember the first time.

Remember the terrorism.

My head hurts.

I'm turning into one of them.

Stop thinking.

If you stop thinking they won't

be able to get into your mind.

How am I supposed to do that?

I know how.

"Dark Sky:
The Third Wave"!

I know!

All right, all right!

After this exclusive preview...

by the way, thank you for that...

which I should mention is being seen

not only by everyone here but

also everybody on the Internet

who's streaming the ceremony from

the official website. Hi, everybody!

OK, but after this, let's bring an end to

this schlongfest, get down to business.

Everybody give it

up for Jill Goddard!

I love you!

Thank you!

We meant her.

We? What do you mean, we?

You're the only one talking.

I'm here with my friends.

If they were your friends,

they wouldn't let you make

such an ass out of yourself.

OK, so, as I was saying,

after seeing this exclusive preview,

I feel like I have to know

if a certain "character"

gets killed this time around.

The white t-shirt, Jill.

You're asking me if the white t-shirt

I'm wearing in that scene survives.

OK, I'm already a little embarrassed.

Oh, come on, don't.

The "Coming Soon" sign appears

right when my shirt is about to come off.

It's supposed to make you think about it.

OK, I guess we're not gonna have

an answer for that question, folks.

Jill, seriously, it is a huge

pleasure to have you here.


I mean, in this one,

she's using her psychic powers...


Sorry. It started recording before

I had a chance to place the camera.

Maybe I should stop

and start over again.

Or you can just cut this part out.

This is recording, right?

Personal introduction.

Hi, there. I'm Nick Chambers

and I'm the webmaster


You know, pictures of Jill,

scans, videos, articles.

Some of my stuff is some

of the first posted of her.

But that was just lucky. I'm not

a reporter. I don't work for an agency.

Presentation of...

I already talked about

my website. Sorry.

What do I expect from...

I'm really happy I won. I know a lot

of bloggers entered the contest.

I've never been to Austin before.

It's really nice.

Actually, I just checked in

the hotel a couple hours ago.

I still can't believe I'm

going to meet Jill Goddard.

I hope my interview with her works out.

I don't want to spoil her dinner.

I promise I won't be as

nervous as I am right now.

Thanks for everything.

I'm surprised, honestly.

Have you shown us too much?

OK, tell him that.

Once you see this scene

in the final film,

you'll see there's a lot more

to it than meets the eye.

Oh, shit. It's a wet dream.

I knew it. I knew it...

That's the exact moment when I wake

up from a dream... it is, isn't it?

No, no, no, it's not a dream.

I assure you, it's not a dream.

- I hate dreams in movies.

- Hate dreams in movies?

What is that? Some thing

with European directors?

- Hello? Nick Chambers?

- Yeah?

Are you Nick Chambers?

Are you the contest winner who gets

to have dinner with Jill Goddard?

- That's me.

- I'm sorry to bother you.

My name is Simon Chord.
