<i>Super 8</i> Plot Details Finally Revealed!

The highly secretive JJ Abrams, with a bit of urging from producer Steven Spielberg, finally reveals some plot details for his upcoming film Super 8

JJ Abrams has a history of keeping his projects as top secret as possible, whether it be films or television. Even with his trailers, he does little to reveal any plot details, character info or designs of aliens for that matter. When the Cloverfield teaser first hit, it had everyone asking questions and very little was answered until we saw a final trailer, literally weeks before it was released. It seemed as hough Abrams was headed in that same direction with his latest film Super 8, but with a little urging from producer Steven Spielberg, he finally released some info to the Los Angeles Times.

He started things off by giving this statement:

“This is the first time I’ve talked about the movie with anybody that wasn’t working on it,”


As far as what the film is actually about, Abrams and the LA Times gave us some decent information.

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.


I'm guessing that the author of the article has seen bits of this film, because they gave some comparisons to other films, and an idea of what to expect from the potential blockbuster movie.

"So, ladies and gentlemen, meet 'Super 8,' a sci-fi film that has the monster-on-the-loose vibe of 'Fringe' (another television show that Abrams co-created) or 'The X-Files' as well as a throwback spirit that in many ways evokes 'E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial,' 'Stand by Me' and maybe even 'The Goonies.'"


ecksmanfan: Being that I am a child of the 80's, I really like the idea of this film, and definitely the films he's used as an inspiration for Super 8. I wasn't not a huge fan of Cloverfield, but it was still enetertaining. This one looks to be at least as good, if not better.
