Watch the Awesome SUPER 8 Super Bowl Spot; Features the First Footage from the Movie

     February 6, 2011


Without a doubt, the best Super Bowl spot so far goes to director J.J. Abrams and Super 8.  Or maybe I should say Steven Spielberg’s Super 8.  Because as I watched the commercial – which features the first footage from the movie – I couldn’t help but think of Spielberg from the way the camera moved to the John Williams sounding score.  While information about Super 8 has been shrouded in mystery, today marks the beginning of Paramount’s promotional campaign and I really couldn’t be more excited.  Trust me, watch the Super Bowl spot and then tell me you don’t want to see this film opening day.  Super 8 gets released June 10.

And thanks to the LA Times, here’s the first synopsis:

The Paramount Pictures release is set in Ohio in 1979 and introduces a troupe of six youngsters who are using a Super 8 camera to make their own zombie movie. One fateful night, their project takes them to a lonely stretch of rural railroad tracks and, as the camera rolls, calamity strikes — a truck collides with an oncoming locomotive and a hellacious derailment fills the night with screaming metal and raining fire. Then something emerges from the wreckage, something decidedly inhuman.

Watch this spot.  You’ll be impressed.
