“Super 8” Movie Trailer and Review – Amazing Summer Movie – Bring it!
Memorial Day is behind us.
And we all know what that means……
The summer blockbusters are coming!
And to start things off this month is the great looking flick “Super 8” and a new movie trailer.
Think “Cloverfield” meets area 51.
In fact, the original screenplay was developed to be the sequel to “Cloverfield”, so you can do the math on what to expect - serious science fiction and inhuman things.
Usually we can tell by the movie trailer if we think a film is going to be any good, and all we can say about the “Super 8” trailer is this film is going to rock.
Not really a kid’s movie, but definitely a predominately teen kid cast – but with very adult adventures.
The production values of this flick are undeniable because it was written and directed by J. J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg.
It stars the young Elle Fanning, AJ Michalka, and Kyle Chandler, and has Spielberg’s trademark all over it.
The story goes like this – a group of kids are playing around with their super 8 movie camera when they witness a train derailment.
It turns out to be a deliberate derailment of a United States Air Force train named "Groom Lake One", which was transporting undisclosed materials from Area 51 to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
After the wreck, some unknown entity escapes from one of the cargo cars and begins to cause havoc on the small town of Lillian, Ohio.
Suddenly, the military and other spooky looking Government suits start showing up and taking over.
All the dogs in town run away and strange things start happening all over.
There are disappearances, unexplained events, and eight missing people. The local sheriff investigates the cause of the events which leads to the discovery of something inhuman.
And the kids have it all on Super 8 video….
The budget for "Super 8" was a modest $45 million and is due in theaters and IMAX June 11th.
Welcome to the blockbuster movie season!
