The first trailer for JJ Abram’s forthcoming sci-fi thriller Super 8 has been released, and it’s amazing. Harking back to the heady sci-fi days of the 1970’s this has got to be a contender for movie event of the year.
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.
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.
