Coming Attraction: Super 8

Click here to watch the trailer for Super 8

J. J. Abrams’ new project, Super 8, is being kept largely in the dark. In the age of the internet, you can read a movie’s script, watch the trailer as many times as you want, and know every actor that is in a movie, all before the movie even is released. But Super 8 is different. A quick glance at it’s IMDb page will show you that no actors are listed and the movie’s premise isn’t even known. An even quicker glance at google’s Super 8 results shows that no one else really knows what the premise is either.

The teaser trailer gives a few indications as to what the heck this is all about. A train that is carrying “material” from Area 51 is derailed, and “something” is banging on the door of a large freight train container, presumably trying to bust out. Is it an alien? Is it some government biological experiment? I guess we won’t know until it’s leaked onto the internet the movie comes out. All we know for now is that it is from Area 51, and it’s big and strong enough to do some major structural damage to a freight container from the inside.

Will you like the film? To find out, you’ll have to ask yourself these two questions: Do you like monster/horror/sci-fi films? Do you like the work of J. J. Abrams (writer of Lost and Alias, director of Star Trek, and producer/creator of Cloverfield)? Personally, I love horror/sci-fi, and I think Abrams is perfectly suited to deliver a thrilling mysterious alien movie. That is why I’m going to give Super 8 a 3.5 on the Potential Meter.

    talked with Abrams at an event last night where he said that it has nothing whatsoever to do with Cloverfield and he can t even tell them what it is about until it s done since he hasn t even started shooting the actual full-length version yet I guess . Beyond that we really don t know what this is about but the Abrams Spielberg had this quote The project will deal with everyday people whose personal relationships are tested when they are thrown up against extraordinarily fantastic and possibly other-worldly events.
