The world got its first taste of J.J. Abrams newest film, Super 8, during the Super Bowl. And now, the full trailer has arrived. If your interest was only slightly peaked for the teaser trailer, then the latest trailer is going to blow you away. And the best part? Unlike most trailers, it not only seems to avoid giving everything away but generates incredible tension. Prepare yourself for Super 8…
It feels like a suped-up version of E.T. : A group of kids have their town turned up-side-down by something incredible and unexplainable. Further, E.T. director Steven Spielberg is serving as a producer for the film. The official synopsis of the film:
In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.
The film debuts June 10. Will you be lined up for midnight showings or will you wait to stream this one online? Leave us your thoughts below!

This is one of the few summer blockbusters I’m actually looking forward to this year. I love Kyle Chandler from Friday Night Lights, and I’m a big fan of Abrams, as well as early Spielberg sci-fi which this seems to be heavily influenced by. Always excited for a film that doesn’t give everything away in the marketing.
…OK. So I’m gonna go outon a limb and state the bleedin’ obvious:
This. Looks. Like. WIN!!!
It’s been a LONG time since ANYONE has come up with a story which has generated so much brou-ha-ha… even the TRAILER has me on the edge of my seat!!! I cannot WAIT for THIS release!!!
