Official Synopsis Released!
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.

So obviously the kids leave their camera, it captures the only footage of the "monster" and that somehow leads to a plot of some kind. It does seem like Cloverfield crossed with Close Encounters and E.T.

It is all very Spielberg and as of yet I don't know if that's a good thing. Because it could turn out to be a really amazing film which homages some very good science fiction films from the 70s and 80s, or it could end up being too unoriginal and seen as a rip-off. One thing I hate about films today is the lack of originality and, although that doesn't make a film bad, it sometimes makes a film a bit less re-watchable.

And Abrams is a legend for making Lost but the two films he's directed, Star Trek and MI III, I've only seen once. They were good films but nothing inspired me to watch them a second time. And I fear this is what'll happen with Super 8.

It does look really good and I am being quite pessimistic but I just get the feeling that I'm going to be disappointed.

PS: Still not sold on Kyle Chandler being the leading man.

And he has finally found a way to love himself. The bamboo sways across the blue sky. And Jack Shephard's eye closes one final time. He is gone."

Yeah I think it may also relate to a military experiment. (j.J. Abrams has suggested the crash itself is not an accident!!) The cargo is of the US AIR-Force, because I am from Ohio and know such things, Ohio is the birth place of aviation! --So I think there could be something FRINGE-esque to this too! (if you have seen episode "Os" you may see what I mean)

New Footage Released:
"I believe." I took a last minute trip to New York this week because I didn't want to miss a special premiere of 20 minutes of unseen footage from J.J. Abrams' new sci-fi movie Super 8, which has been my most anticipated of 2011 since the trailer debuted a few weeks ago. Many have been waiting to see if the movie has more subsistence than just paying homage to Steven Spielberg's great sci-fi classics of the 70s and 80s, and after seeing a good 20 minutes of footage, it unquestionably does. To me, it seems like Abrams has already created a movie that could be a classic, but without first taking us on an incredible adventure this summer..."

http://www.firstshowing.net/2011/early-impression-j-j-abrams-reveals-astounding-super-8-footage/

There is a video blog at the bottom of the article in which two lucky people who saw the footage give some spoilers and their first impressions. I will keep looking to see if any actual footage shows up in video form, but I think it's not going to be likely, unless Paramount lets it leak.

Trailer looks great, although the use of child actors concerns me :bored:

It's suppose to be homage to EOTK and ET. It's also multi-genre. (love, horror, action, comedy, sci-fi, drama)

Every time I see a FB in one of his shows were we have child actors, they always add greatness to the series. I have faith that these kids will take us back and remind us how prescious childhood is and having experience are.

Portal 2 - Interactive Trailer!
http://www.movies.spoilertv.com/2011/04/super-8-portal-2-interactive-teaser.html

If it's cannon, then it looks like we could, if the monster/alien doesn't hurt him first, have one survivor...

I just watched the trailer(IMDB was almost forcing me to watch the trailer) and my thoughts were the same.
