J.J. Abrams, who brought us the likes of “Lost” and “The Event” is back with a science fiction thriller sure to please. Releasing June 10th, 2011 is Super 8 and Abrams wanted to keep all details a secret until opening night. However, viewers have wanted some sort of insight into the movie.
All you get for now is a simple paragraph telling us the plot line. I think it’s written effectively enough to peak interest and build excitement towards the flick.
The Paramount Pictures release is set in Ohio in 1979 and introduces a troupe of six youngsters who 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.
So, without further adieu…here is your glimpse into the film with this Super 8 trailer.
