Yet for all their evolution, they form no bonds.
Love does not exist for them. They are incapable of dreaming,
Of contemplating beauty, Of knowing something greater than themselves.

J.J. Abrams has been a chatty cat the past couple of days! He has updated fans on many of his up and coming projects including "Super 8" which includes His praise of Kyle Chandler, Filming done, and a trailer should be coming out in March.

J.J. Abrams refused to say much at all about the movie, although he did confirm that filming had ending and now they're in a very hectic editing phase. He also praised his star, Friday Night Lights's Kyle Chandler, which revealed a few oblique hints about the movie as a whole:

Kyle is the greatest. He's my favorite. I love that guy. I can't say enough about him. He had a very interesting part and it was a wonderful shoot with him. It was interesting, because I got to work with him in a way that I really like to work with actors, which is I like talking about what a moment is, but I don't like over rehearsing things. There are kids in the movie as well, and that requires a little bit more work. I don't like rehearsing all that much and I like jumping in. And Kyle, having done Friday Night Lights, that's all they do. So he loved it! And it was so much fun to sort of say, "Here's the moment. Here's the thing. Let's just shoot it." And he was like, "Great!" His eyes always lit up when it was about just trying it. And his instincts are so good and he's so crazy talented and relatable. I love him. I can't say enough about him.


When will audiences get to see a trailer for Super 8?

ABRAMS: Probably sometime in March, I think.

"Super 8" is confirmed as one of Hollywood's, and specifically Paramounts, promotions during the Super Bowl in 2 weeks! -So I assume we will perhaps see some kind of teaser/trailer.

ComingSoon also has links to an LA Time Article In Which Abrams Gives Us The Plot:

“To me, all people need to know is that it’s an adventure about a small town and it’s funny, it’s sweet, it’s scary and there’s a mystery: What is this thing that has escaped? What are the ramifications of its presence? And what is the effect on people? But I know that’s not enough. Look, I feel we need a little bit of a coming-out party because we are up against massive franchises and brands and most people don’t know what ‘Super 8′ means. We’re a complete anomaly in a summer of huge films … and we don’t want to be so silent or coy that people don’t care or don’t hear about it.”

“As the process went along I realized I had the potential makings of my favorite sort of movie, which is the one that is the hardest genre to define,” Abrams said. “That because you could say — and be right — that it’s a science fiction movie; or you could say — and be right — that it’s a love story; or you could say — and be right — that it’s a comedy; or you could say — and be right — that it’s a special-effects spectacle. That sort of cocktail is for me what I love about movies…that was the beginnings of this movie coming together.”

This is a movie about overcoming loss and finding your way again and finding your own voice,” Abrams said. “A boy whose lost his mother and the man whose lost his wife. There’s this father who, because of the era, never really had to be the parent. He’s a good man, he works hard, he’s a deputy in the town, but he’s never stepped up as father.”

Full Article Here:http://herocomplex.latimes.com/2011/02/06/super-8-j-j-abrams-2/

I really think it looks good! It has that old Speilberg family feel, but yet the modern character driven science-fiction-drama of Abrams. :D

Here are screencaps from the Super Bowl TV spot that reveal some Easter Eggs. Some are saying the EEs lead to a new viral marketing campaign.

One of the images seems to have a reference to LOST if you look carefully it says "LOS..."

Enjoy!

First Trailer To Be Shown with Red Riding Hood!
Last month, fans noticed an interesting detail in the Super Bowl TV spot for J.J. Abrams‘ Super 8: a film frame showing the date 03/11/11. We speculated at the time that March 11 would be the release date for the first Super 8 trailer, especially as Abrams had previously announced that we could expect to see the trailer around March.

Though we still don’t have official confirmation, new information indicates that our theory was probably correct — and that we can therefore expect to see the Super 8 trailer before Battle: Los Angeles and Red Riding Hood when they open this weekend.

Just found this (Major props and shout out to Devil's Arcade!!! :rockon: )

But, If I see one Golden Shower/Magic Fountain/Polar Bear reference... I am gonna be ****!

But seriously, This could be awesomely great as long as its done well. I was not a big fan of Cloverfield so I am hoping that they don't follow that mold too closely...

(I will accept a Dharma Logo on the creatures but!!! :D )

I do love the shout out for 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' though, CEOTTK remains one of my top ten movies of all time. And with even/just the yellow pickup and RR crossing scene, they will get my 10 bucks in the theater for this one! :thumbup:

I am sure there will be something, but I feel confident that this will be more like everything else and not so much like Cloverfield. Abrams has described it as of the multi-genre and I think will play homage to many of Speilberg's films..

Actually I saw something in one of the set pics for MI 4 -which I also saw drawn in in 2 seperate stories of Tales of Fringe Comics...Now maybe it just happened to be there, but I don't think so considering who is also cast in MI-4.
