There’s no doubt that J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8” is one of the most anticipated movies of the summer season, and even though its release is just days away — this coming Friday (June 10), to be precise — the wait feels longer than ever.
But if you’re in desperate need of your “Super 8″ fix now, no sweat — we’ve got your back. Check out this exclusive clip from the sci-fi blockbuster, which debuted last evening (June 5) at the MTV Movie Awards!
From the very beginning of its marketing campaign, “Super 8″ has centered on a horrific train wreck that has disastrous consequences not just for the people on board, but for all of the folks living in the nearby small town community when a mysterious and dangerous entity gets loose. This clip is no different — whether it’s a monster, an alien or something else altogether, the “Super 8″ menace is busting out and getting down to bloody business. Get excited!
There’s little more in the Movie Awards teaser than we’ve seen in previous trailers, but just enough to tease it for us to be — if possible — even more interested. The opening scene in the teaser where Joel Courtney, Elle Fanning and their friends witness the train crash is one of the most epic scenes we’ve seen in recent history, and yet we’re glad the clip didn’t spoil the movie for us. J.J. Abrams said it best when he said this was a movie not meant to be revealed beforehand, and even if things are somewhat clearer now, we’re glad that the mystery is still mostly preserved for when the film hits theaters Friday.
