First poster for Super 8

Yesterday we got the epic first trailer for Super 8 and today Paramount Pictures has released a poster for the upcoming J.J. Abrams-directed sci-fi film. Like the trailer the poster fits in with the whole 1970’s sci-fi movie angle. It’s very Twilight Zone-y.

The movie is 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.

Super 8 is released June 10th in the US, with Ireland and the UK lagging behind till August 19th.
