The Trailer for Super 8

Posted May 7th, 2010 at 12:24 am

The secretive trailer for Super 8 has spurned some huge intrigue over the last few days and it has now debuted in front of Iron Man 2. Yesterday I posted some details on the movie as well as a link over to read a detailed description of the events of the trailer. Generally when a trailer debuts on an event movie it doesn’t officially go online until the following Monday. So, in lieu of the official release, we turn to bootleg recordings which are springing up everywhere.

Obviously this isn’t ideal quality but it gets across enough to probably make it a worthwhile watch in the meantime. I won’t go into what specifically happens in the trailer, but as noted previously this is not a sequel or prequel to Cloverfield. It is an alien movie that takes place in 1979, is produced by Steven Spielberg, and is written and directed by JJ Abrams. After checking it out leave your thoughts in the comments!

The official website has launched, though as of now it only contains the running camera and nothing of substance. If the video below happens to have been pulled (which will probably happen) it can also be viewed here.
