Paramount Pictures has released a new ‘Super 8′ trailer. The highly anticipated Steven Spielberg movie, and you can watch it below! Spielberg, writer and director J.J. Abrams, and the rest of the crew have done a pretty good job of keeping details of the movie secret, and in turn elevating the anticipation factor for all of the Steven Spielberg fans out there!
What has been revealed up until now has been basically a scant few details. You probably know that the release date is scheduled for June 10, 2011. Unfortunately that is a few months away. You also probably already know the basics, the movie focuses on a small group of pre-teen kids growing up in the Midwest in the 1970′s. The kids stumble upon some sort of creature while shooting a homemade 8mm film.
In watching the ‘Super 8′ trailer, you can see that the production and special effects teams have gone all out on this one. In particular, without giving too much away before you watch the trailer, there are some pretty amazing special effects involving a train on its way to Ohio.
For those of you that haven’t seen the first ‘Super 8′ trailer, it begins in 1979 at a closed section of Area 51, where all important materials from the Area are being moved to a secured facility in Ohio, via train. Cut to crazy, and assuming drunk, driver in an old pick-up truck and, well, it is easy to see where things could go awry from there.
New Official ‘Super 8′ Trailer Synopsis – Spoiler Alert
Paramount released the new “Super 8′ trailer and synopsis via their Facebook page: “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 Â– something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.”
A couple new key clues released in the trailer are, number one, all of the ‘missing dog’ signs. What happened to all of the dogs? Apparently the creature either has a healthy appetite for dog, or all the dogs in town are smarter than the people and got the heck out of Dodge!
Number two, the creature obviously has some sort of control over electricity. You see power lines exploding, electronics stores exploding, anything and everything related to electricity.
Has your interest been piqued enough? Quick, go watch the trailer now via the short link Paramount provided, here.
Anyone who loved ‘ET, The Extra Terrestrial’ as a kid, will surely love this new Steven Spielberg movie. It seems this will be the ‘ET’ for today’s new generation of kids, and adults!
