Director J.J. Abrams's SUPER 8 movie finally sees a full trailer, while revealing nothing at all of the "monster" (and hence avoiding the hoopla which surrounded Cloverfield, or perhaps folks be tired of rooting for monster-reveals), the trailer sets the tone and pace of the movie with it's retro-visuals, and yes, it looks real nice. The film's cine-cred is further bolstered by the crediting of Steven Spielberg as the "producer". Further "name dropping" includes having the "cargo" being transported via train enroute to "Area 51". Am liking the stark contrast between the hi-tech recording ability of Cloverfield in the modern age, versus the low-tech non-recoding ability (except for the Super 8 camera in question) of the late 70s = How cool is that? …. What? Train got derailed? And Cargo Escaped? Not so cool for the folks involved, innit? (Way cool for us tho muahahahaha)

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." [via Wikipedia].
