New Super 8 Movie Trailer Reveals More Confusion

Submitted by on March 16, 2011 – 9:10 amOne Comment

JJ Abrams‘s latest movie has had the Internet buzzing ever since the first trailer was shown before Iron Man 2. The short clip showed a train accident with something trying to get out of the trailer. That was it. But it was just enough to pique our curiosity. After all, this is the same Abrams behind the hit series Lost, Alias, Fringe as well as the producer of the film Cloverfield.

When another 30-second trailer hit during the Super Bowl, it gave us a little more insight but still didn’t give away any particulars. But it was just enough to garner this Wikipedia description:

“Set in 1979 Ohio, a group of six young children use a Super 8 camera to make their own zombie movie. One night while filming near a remote stretch of railroad tracks, the children witness a truck collide with an oncoming train leading to a catastrophic derailment. Amidst the fire and destruction, something inhuman emerges.”

Now the official trailer has hit the net via Twitvid. This time it is clear there are kids filming a movie and seeing something horrific. We’re not sure if it’s a monster, entity, person or what. But it sure as hell tears up the city of Ohio. We don’t know what the heck is going on, but it sure is intriguing.

While most movies are remakes of old films or just terribly unoriginal, Super 8 appears to be breaking the mold. With a date of June 10th set in stone, this could be the hit of the summer. Check out the trailer.
