Super 8 gets a release date

We may not know exactly what it’s about but at least we know when we’ll get it. Paramount has scheduled the release of JJ Abram’s new movie, Super 8, for June 10th, 2011.

What we do know is that it’s set in 1979 Lillian Heights, Ohio and centres on “three siblings who discover footage of an alien in some Super 8 footage they shot.”

The film stars Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Ryan Lee, Elle Fanning and Riley Griffiths, with Steven Spielberg attached as executive producer.

Considering this same layer of secrecy enveloped Cloverfield and that was great we’re expecting big things from this one.
