Like Cloverfield, Super 8 has been shrouded in secrecy. Minus the teaser trailer, which gave little away, no one really knows what to expect from this movie and its release is in only a few months. Earlier today the official plot synopsis was revealed:

"In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined."

These were the previously released details from last month: "“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.”

A full trailer is expected to be released with Battle: Los Angeles this weekend, so we should get a better idea of what the movie will be like in the next few days. Super 8 will be released on June 10th.
