First Clip from J.J. Abrams’ SUPER 8

     May 16, 2011


The first clip from J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 has gone online.  Footage-wise, there’s not much here that you haven’t seen in the trailer.  What’s interesting about the clip is the pacing and the camera angles.  The clip is paced so quickly that it almost feels abbreviated and of course, there’s plenty of lens flare for no particular reason.

Hit the jump to check out the brief clip.  The film stars Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills, and Amanda Michalka.  Super 8 opens June 10th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Super 8:

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.
