Poster Alert: Super 8

The much anticipated film is just days away from arriving in theatres so it's only fitting we provide a look at the latest poster for J.J. Abrams's Super 8.

The film looks to be a loving throwback to Steven Spielberg's earlier films and this sweet poster captures that vibe perfectly. I miss the old-school, hand-drawn posters. It's great to see a studio take a shot at one of these again.

In case you've lived in a cave for the past year, the plot for Super 8 is as follows: “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.”

Written and directed by Abrams and produced by Spielberg, Super 8 lands in theatres on Friday. Enjoy the poster below!

  1. I like this poster. I've also missed the classic poster art of the 1980's etc. The closest that have come close was the first Harry Potter poster, and the ones after that- even though the ones for Chamber of Secrets (#2) onward weren't hand drawn, they still had some of the feel of the old school posters. :D
