Finally! A better understanding of 'Super 8'

Posted on

Super 8

Even after the fuller glimpse at an still-too-brief teaser of Super 8 debuted at the Super Bowl, details on the J.J. Abrams/Steven Spielberg film have remained scarce. But now we’ve got an official synopsis of the film which will be in theaters June 10:

“In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth — something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.”

The film starts Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Joel Courtney, Gabriel Basso, Noah Emmerich, Ron Eldard, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee and Zach Mills.
