Abrams, Spielberg trailer “Super 8”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It’s funny – in an entertaining kind of way — to watch the filmmakers who grew up worshipping Steven Spielberg come into their own.
A new comedy opening soon (that I can’t talk about just yet) is steeped in Spielberg nostalgia, dropping “E.T.” and “Close Encounters” references and even luring the Oscar-winning director for a cameo (of sorts). And then there’s J.J. Abrams, who cites Spielberg as a major influence, and collaborated with him on this summers “Super 8,” which mirrors early Spielberg in so many ways.
Is it any wonder it’s sitting atop our “Must See” list for Summer 2011?
A new “Super 8” trailer hit Thursday night. It sets up the story of young teenagers making their own movie with a Super 8 camera who happen to be near train that derails. The locomotive’s cargo is … dangerous. So obviously, we’re worried when the kids go looking for it.
“Super 8” looks like “Stand By Me” and “The Goonies” meets “Cloverfield.” I mean that in a very good way.
You can see the new trailer here. You can see “Super 8” when it opens in theaters on June 10.
