Another day, another short 30-second clip from J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8”, this one from AOL. The third clip follows up on the previous two with the aftermath of the train derailment. In the clip, the kids meet the old dude who caused the derailment, and he don’t look so hot. Serves him right for causing the crash, if you ask me. I’ve included all three clips for coherence, with the latest/3rd clip at the end if you’d like to skip on to it.
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 releasing into theaters June 10th.
