With the release of Super 8 fast approaching, some very cool hand drawn posters for the film have surfaced.
Unfortunately they were never officially released as part of the film’s promotion, but, thankfully for us, they've turned up online.
It is clear that they have been designed as a nod to producer Steven Spielberg. The posters are reminiscent of those associated with Spielberg’s classics, drawn by artist Drew Struzan.
Bad Robot commissioned artists Daniel Skubal and fiancé Veronica LaPage to make the posters, which never ended up being used.
Needless to say they are impressive and capture the era, mystery and sci-fi feel that this film promises.

Super 8 opens on 5 August 2011.
