Super 8 New Trailer Review

You may remember, last month I wrote about the upcoming film Super 8, well now a new even longer trailer has been released.  When I last wrote about it, very little was revealed about the film, but now more plot details have be shown.  Although we’re still in the dark about what the monster looks like.

The movie is about a group of children who, using a Super 8 camera, try to make their own monster movie.  However, while filming, they witness a train being derailed and some creature escaping.  Strange things begin to happen around town, people are attack, all the dogs run away, etc.

While watching the trailer, I couldn’t help thinking of E.T., maybe it’s just me.  Then again, the film is an homage to Steven Spielberg and his work, so I guess some familiarity is to be expected.  The movie looks great and I’m genuinely looking forward to its release, but if even one dog is killed off I will walk straight out of that cinema.  They could write off the entire main cast and I’d sit there munching popcorn, but one dog gets hurt and it’s the end of the movie for me.  I think that not seeing the creature adds so much to the excitement, similar to how much buzz formed around what the Cloverfield monster would look like.  Let’s just hope fan are happier with the appearance this time around.

This is J.J. Abrams first original project and it comes out on the 19th of August, in the UK and Ireland, and the 10th of June, in the US.  His work is always great though, so I have no doubt that Super 8 will be able to hold its own against the classic Spielberg films that inspired it.

What do you think?  Do you like the new trailer?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.
