J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg are seeking to recapture to imaginative spirit of those ‘80s Amblin films with their upcoming sci-fi film Super 8. Looking like one of the best bets of the summer, footage wowed audiences at CinemaCon last week, and a new TV spot aims to capitalize on the hype.
One of the new shots shows what looks like a dumpster sliding out from behind a gas station where an investigating cop is caught off his G. The Super 8 antagonist seems to be just around the corner and this scene could be a part of the gas station attack shown during the preview the media got a chance to be a part of in New York, and more recently, Las Vegas.
Are you still intrigued to know who or what is plaguing the small Ohio town community? Is it E.T. gone berserk? We hope to find out soon.
Super 8 stars Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basson, Joel Courtney, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills, and Amanda Michalka and opens on June 10.
