Super 8 (which is supposedly a tentative title) is written and directed by visionary director J.J. Abrams, who started his career with “Lost” & “Alias” before directing Mission: Impossible III and Star Trek last summer. This is being produced by Steven Spielberg with a budget of ~$50 million and hasn’t even started shooting. Abrams will film this in the next months, most likely in complete secrecy, so I’m not sure when we’ll see the next trailer. According to early reports, this is inspired by Spielberg’s films of the 70’s and 80’s. Paramount will be releasing Super 8 in theaters everywhere sometime next summer in 2011 (a date has not been set).
I watched this before Iron Man 2 on the big screen and it twas amazing.
