8MM is a 1999 Crime Mystery film released on 26th February; Joel Schumacher directed the film which stars Nicolas Cage, Joaquin Phoenix and James Gandolfini. A sequel, 8MM 2, was released in 2005. The film was a box office success, earning a profit of $56,618,699 on its budget.

A small, seemingly innocuous plastic reel of film leads surveillance specialist Tom Welles down an increasingly dark and frightening path. With the help of the streetwise Max, he relentlessly follows a bizarre trail of evidence to determine the fate of a complete stranger. As his work turns into obsession, he drifts farther and farther away from his wife, family and simple life as a small-town PI.
