As the release of JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg’s Super 8 draws near, the advertising is picking up. Just last week there were a number of brand new 30 second clips, and now a brand new clip of a scene from the film has also been released. There is a second clip and once I can locate it, I will add it to this post!
The first clip shows the kids of the quiet country town using their Super 8 camera to make a movie. They hear something in the background and turn round to find a vehicle playing chicken with a very large train. Could it be intentional? Well, it certainly looks like it! Everyting is caught on camera as the vehicle and train collide causing a huge accident. As you probably already know, the train contains the still yet to be seen Monster.
(Update) We now have the second clip, which shows the poor budding filmmaker’s running for their lives as the train derails and all sorts of debris fly’s through the air. It ends with the Monster about to escape, or does it? Ah, the tension is killing me!!
All will be revealed here in the UK on August 5th.
