FROM MTV MOVIES: Details have been scarce about this summer's potential blockbuster "Super 8," as J.J. Abrams and company have maintained their typical air of secrecy about the thriller, which hits theaters on June 10. All that could change on Sunday night, when viewers will get a sneak peek at the Steven Spielberg-produced movie at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.
Both director Abrams and Spielberg will join "Super 8" stars Elle Fanning and Joel Courtney on the stage of the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, to present never-before-seen footage from the film, which chronicles a mysterious event accidentally caught on film by the cast of young stars.
All we know so far about the movie's plot is that while making a homemade zombie movie, a group of kids film "something" escaping a train crash. And whatever it is sends their town into turmoil. The "Super 8" trailer has earned comparisons to such Spielberg classics as 1979's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
