“Super 8” Trailer

The trailer for J.J. Abrams’ and Steven Spielberg’s Super 8 was released by Paramount Pictures Saturday via a partnership with Twitter.com. The ’70s-set sci-fi flick is an eagerly-awaited homage to Spielberg’s Amblin-era productions, featuring Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka, and Kyle Chandler.

“To me, all people need to know is that it’s an adventure about a small town and it’s funny, it’s sweet, it’s scary and there’s a mystery…I feel we need a little bit of a coming-out party because we are up against massive franchises and brands and most people don’t know what Super 8 means,” Abrams told The Los Angeles Times last month.

Super 8 opens in cinemas Stateside June 10 and in the UK Aug. 19.
