    I think that's how the 1976 version of The Omen was released, too -- 6/6/76.

    08/08/08 is apparently when Repo! The Genetic Opera is coming out, so I'm going to see that. Or renting it, if it happens to be a straight-to-DVD release. I'm unclear on what's going on with that. Still, should be a good night.

    However, I was unaware of any superstition that pertained to that date. Is there any actual superstition, or is it just people who like obsessing over the end of the world again?

    8 is a lucky number in lots of Asian countries; that's why the Olympics in China are starting on 08/08/08. I can't think of any other superstitions relating to 8; it seems like 8 is generally a positive number!

    Ah, interesting. A day that's based in good luck. Hm. Considering our society, I'm still betting some idiot is going to turn it into the latest apocalypse, as I'm guessing December 2012 is too far away to be satisfactory.
