New Super 8 trailer online

Plus JJ Abrams talks

super 8

J.J. Abrams’ latest top secret movie Super 8 is out in cinemas in August, and he’s finally beginning to let a few cats out of the bag regarding the mysterious project.

The first comes in the release of a second trailer (an effective teaser was unveiled last year), which simultaneously has us chewing our fists in anticipation while still knowing basically nothing about the film.

One thing’s for certain: it’s extremely Spielbergian in look and feel. Note the young male protagonist, the promise of epic adventure, and sly out-of-this-world suggestions.

Check out the trailer below…

At the moment, the film’s looking like a period mash-up of E.T. and Signs, with a little War Of The Worlds thrown in for good measure.

Of course, nobody will find out anything solid about the film until it hits cinemas.

Meanwhile, Abrams spoke a little about Super 8 to Hero Complex, revealing that it’s “a movie about overcoming loss and finding your way again and finding your own voice.”

He addressed the tone of the film, noting: “I  realised I had the potential makings of  my favourite sort of movie, which is the one that is the hardest genre to define.

“That’s 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.”

Super 8 opens 19 August.
