So when you first saw the Super 8 Trailer during the Super Bowl did you sit around pondering the idea of “what the fuck was that about?!” with your friends? Cuz’ that what I sure did. I mean we get this scene that looks straight out of Leave it to Beaver of some kid riding his bike then a fucking train crashes out of nowhere. Then suddenly a bunch of people in shock and awe are catapulted at us and we are clueless as to what has happened. Well, thankfully we finally have an explanation as to what is going on in this damn thing! A summary of the plot of J.J. Abrams upcoming film Super 8 has been released stating,
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.
In addition to having our foggy vision of what’s going in the film cleared up we also found out who will be making up the cast. The list includes Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basson, Joel Courtney, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills and Amanda Michalka.
Even though the project is in the hands of a great director and back by the likes of Steven Spielberg the thought still remains that maybe all the secrecy is part of the magic that makes the film so intriguing and that once that’s revealed it may let us down. What do you guys think??
