Previously, we had just a teaser for this upcoming J.J. Abrams homage to Steven Spielberg known as Super 8. Now, thanks to the magic of the Internets (and the Paramount PR department) we’ve got a full trailer for the movie to share with you today.
This one brings a lot more of the story and characters and goes a long way to cementing this as one of the must-see films of the year. Written and directed by Abrams, the film’s plot has been kept pretty close to chest until now.
From what we’ve gathered, a group of kids in 1979 catch something inexplicable emerge from a train wreck on their super 8 movie camera. Naturally, all hell breaks loose and these kids are the only ones who know something evil this way comes.
Not sure exactly how much Spielberg had in the way of direct influence on this movie, but his influence is felt heavly nonetheless. It looks and feels like a movie he would have made himself during the Close Encounters and E.T. days. And that, at least to us, is a good thing.
Check out the trailer after the jump. Super 8 hits theaters on June 10th.
