Super 8 IMAX Trailer



A new IMAX trailer for the J.J. Abrams directed and Steven Spielberg produced alien sci-fi "Super 8" has been released.

I think there are a few seconds(?) of additional footage - nothing new.

Abrams is being real secretive about this one. Yesterday, in NYC the showed off around 20 minutes of footage with the general consensus around the web being that it didn't reveal any new info.


Set in 1979 Ohio, the film will follow a group of six young children as they use a Super 8 camera to make their own home movie. One night while filming near a remote stretch of railroad track, the children witness a truck collide with an oncoming train leading to a catastrophic derailment. Amidst the fire and destruction, something emerges from within the wreckage, something inhuman.

Super 8, due out next summer, is directed by J.J. Abrams, produced by Steven Spielberg and stars Kyle Chandler, Amanda Michalka, Elle Fanning and Zach Mills.
