Last week we reported on the full description of the Super 8 trailer, the top secret teaser for the next J.J. Abrams project that no one had ever heard of. As it turns out, that description was 100% accurate in describing what you can watch in below in the official Super 8 movie trailer.
The first official Super 8 trailer is intriguing to say the least but doesn’t reveal too much outside of what we’ve already heard. According to J.J. Abrams, Super 8 is not at all related to Cloverfield and is a separate and unique monster movie.
While seemingly embodying the style of Steven Spielberg’s (he’s collaborating with Abrams on Super 8) early work from the 70s and 80s, all we know about the film outside of the trailer footage is the limited plot synopsis from Heat Vision:
“The possibility that a group of kids in 1979 are playing around making movies with their Super 8 cameras (as Abrams and Spielberg did as kids) and accidentally capture something … sinister, on film.”
