As I sat watching the trailer for Super 8 during the Super Bowl, one of my friends remarked, "Is this a sequel to E.T.?" Obviously this is not the case, but the preview does channel producer Steven Spielberg's earlier work between the music and the central character, a young boy.
Spielberg and director J.J. Abrams have been tight-lipped about their latest collaboration, yet all signs point to Super 8 being an alien sci-fi movie. A panicked Kyle Chandler and Elle Fanning look toward the sky, people get dragged through grocery store aisles, and crazy explosions erupt. But we don't actually get to see the extraterrestrials, which only adds to the suspense. The film comes to theaters June 10, but take a look after the jump.
