J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8” has released a new batch of images from the upcoming sci-fi/horror/monster movie. As Abrams is wont to do, he’s keeping the whole shebang hidden right up to opening night, which will be June 10th for those of you marking your calenders. The idea of course is to generate positive word of mouth ala “Cloverfield”. We’ll see if it works a second time. Check out the new images below.
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, and AJ Michalka.
