Tip: What would Lost look like if it was set in the 1960s?
We're not quite sure, but thanks to Edot Achmejedidad, we at least know what the opening credits would look like.
After a mysterious atmospheric event, a small group of people wake up to realize that their entire lives have been a lie. They are in fact aliens disguised as humans. Now they have to make a choice. Live amongst men, or try to find a way back home.
BullfightsOnAcid gives us some info:
It will feature Martian Girl, Aqualad, Nightwing, Impulse, Arrowette, and Connor Kent. It will be announced officially at Comic Con.
I caught this on /Film, but its a TEDx (the 'x' means independently organized) talk from Neill Blomkamp about what he thinks alien life will look like. Its actually very well presented, I've heard and read most of the points he makes but he adds some interesting visuals and presents in a very nice cohesive way. I recommend checking it out.
