Sure, the alien space monster (or something) in J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8” seems to be going around eating everyone’s dog, but that doesn’t mean it’s not nice. Heck, dogs could be a delicacy where it comes from, like some people and lobsters. Or something like that. Anyways, check out the full trailer for Abrams’ Steven Spielberg-ish looking “Super 8”, which stars Kyle Chandler from “Friday Night Lights” and a bunch of cute precocious kids.
Set in Ohio in 1979, a troupe of six youngsters are using a Super 8 camera to make their own zombie movie. One fateful night, their project takes them to a lonely stretch of rural railroad tracks and, as the camera rolls, calamity strikes – a truck collides with an oncoming locomotive and a hellacious derailment fills the night with screaming metal and raining fire. Then something emerges from the wreckage, something decidedly inhuman.
Starring Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills, AJ Michalka and directed by J.J. Abrams.
Rewinding June 10, 2011.
