J.J. Abrams was last seen around these parts directing the fabulous Star Trek reboot in 2009 (yes, it really was two years ago), and while he has kept himself busy producing Morning Glory and writing/producing the forthcoming Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, we eagerly anticipate whatever he has in stall for us next. Back in February, we looked at the Super Bowl Spots from Paramount, giving us a 30-second look at Super 8, co-produced by none other than Steven Spielberg! Now, thanks again to Paramount, we have a full trailer for the film to look at.
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. Directed by J.J. Abrams from his original script, the Amblin Entertainment and Bad Robot Production film is produced by Steven Spielberg, Abrams and Bryan Burk.
The film stars Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basson, Joel Courtney, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills and Amanda Michalka.
Super 8 is released on 9 June 2011 in Australia from Paramount.
