Polyhedra in the cinema

Polyhedra in the cinema

Modern cinema has tried to attract the attention of the viewer, using geometric forms of "alien origin."

In the film Super 8, produced by Steven Spielberg, the ship of an alien creature that flew to Earth, consisted of a huge number of small polyhedrons. The shape is very similar to the Rubik's cube.

Heroes first find them after the crash of a military special train.
Later, looking at the film from the secret military laboratory, they learn that these cubes are a kind of alloy that makes up the ship of an alien creature who made an emergency landing on Earth and unsuccessfully trying to assemble it.
Experiments of scientists and military aimed at taking possession of extraterrestrial technology, and not at all to help the alien prisoner.

As a result, the alien manages to escape and build a car under the water tower to recreate the ship. All metal objects as well as all cubes in military trucks are attracted to the tower. Gathering together, the cubes are connected, form a ship, and the alien leaves the planet.
