Hot Trailer: JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg’s SUPER 8 Trailer ..released on Twitter first?

So they released the full trailer for the very mysterious and highly anticipated JJ Abrams film Super 8. The film is written and directed by Abrams with Stephen Spielberg producing. With credentials like that, this movie has the potential of being an absolutely fantastic filmgoing experience especially considering that the main reason why Spielberg was brought in was so that the 80’s movie vibe that he pioneered could be emulated correctly in this film.

As well, with this trailer we finally get a sense of what the movie will feel like and what the story is all about.  While there still is not a lot known, we now get a sense that the film is not going to suck. And truth be told with this much creative weight behind the film, that is probably one of the most important things to get out of the way.

The interesting thing about the trailer itself is that studio released it on Twitter using Twitvid. This is brilliant and I forsee this becoming a trend with other films as the trailer as already accumulated over 3.2 million views since it launched a couple of days ago.

Here is the synopsis:

The Paramount Pictures release is set in Ohio in 1979 and introduces a troupe of six youngsters who are using a Super 8 camera to make their own zombie movie. One fateful night, their project takes them to a lonely stretch of rural railroad tracks and, as the camera rolls, calamity strikes — a truck collides with an oncoming locomotive and a hellacious derailment fills the night with screaming metal and raining fire. Then something emerges from the wreckage, something decidedly inhuman.
