In a World... Made Entirely of Steam...

I want to know more about the newly discovered steam world, where:
"...its surface temperature is... an average 446 degrees Fahrenheit, according to estimates from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center.
That means that the water on the surface of GJ 1214b is doing weird things besides turning into steam.
“The high temperatures and high pressures would form exotic materials like ‘hot ice’ or ‘superfluid water’, substances that are completely alien to our everyday experience,” Berta [a researcher at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics] explained."
When's the movie?
