Super 8 Trailer

Honestly. I’ve watched this latest trailer for the J.J. Abrams directed and Steven Spielberg produced Sci-Fi adventure, Super 8, three times in a row. I get goose bumps from just the first 30 seconds of the music played…I’m sure that isn’t actual music from the score…but combined with the visuals it just feels like a Steven Spielberg film like back in my youth. Looking forward to seeing more about this before it hits the theaters on June 10th!

  1. The first teaser was great, but the trailer in theaters didn’t get my hopes up. Now, I’m excited again, so thanks for posting this new one!

  2. I was more unsure when I saw the teaser, but this trailer confirmed for my the Spielberg vibe was intact. I just hope the FX are not distracting or over the top.

    Looking forward to this summer movie.
    I think the music is from Cocoon. Nice, evocative choice.

    I’ll be avoiding further trailers from now on.
    Kinda surprised they managed to keep this one under wraps for so long.
