Super 8 Plot Details

Now that the Super 8 trailer has aired at the Super Bowl, the marketing push for this film has officially started, and J.J. Abrams is talking more about the film. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, you can see this Spielberg-inspired sci-fi teaser on our Super Bowl video roundup page.

The official plot details have also been released: "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."

After watching the trailer last night, Super 8 definitely looks like something in the same vein of an 80's Spielberg sci-fi and I'm really interested in seeing how this turns out. Super 8 will arrive in theaters on June 10th, 2011. For an in-depth interview with J.J. Abrams on the film, check out our source link below.
