Lost in Previews: Super 8

Last week, the first full trailer for Super 8 premiered on Twitter via TwitVid.  That has to be a first for a major movie release.  Previous to this trailer, there was an ambiguous teaser trailer and the Superbowl commercial spot.  The trailer is now over on iTunes Movie Trailers, along with the poster release.  I have to say this looks good, and there have been enough crappy alien movies as of late that it has to be time for a good one.  Today, some NYC press got to see twenty minutes of the footage and they seemed impressed (at least from their tweets).  Let’s see if director JJ Abrams can knock this one out of the park because Star Trek was damn good.  Super 8 stars Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills, and Amanda Michalka.  Official Synopsis:

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.

Super 8 is in theatres June 10, 2011.
