Super 8 TV spot impresses

Just when it looked like the J.J. Abrams directed/Steven Spielberg produced Super 8 couldn't get any cooler this TV spot had to come along and prove us wrong.

Everything about this movie has oozed awesome from the get go. The spot below, which is about a minute long, shows footage not teased at in any of the previous trailers or Super Bowl ad. And everything about it looks like pure cinematic gold.

We know Abrams is a solid director. Star Trek and Mission: Impossible 3 proved that. And Spielberg is Spielberg. I love the early Amblim Entertainment vibe this gives off and how it brings kids into the picture without sacrificing thrills.

As for the plot: 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.

Watch the trailer and enjoy! Super 8 arrives in theatres June 10.
