It's Close Encounters of the J.J. Kind. We are very excited to debut the official Japanese poster for J.J. Abrams' upcoming sci-fi movie Super 8 tonight, as you'll see below. Paramount has asked us to unveil this spectacular new poster to the world and I'm more than happy to do so, as this is the movie I am most excited to see this summer! The imagery, which has never been seen before, has a very Close Encounters of the Third Kind vibe to it, which makes sense considering the film is an homage to Spielberg's sci-fi classics of the 1970s, but I know Abrams' has crafted his own exciting, original story for the movie. Check this out!
Be sure to watch the official trailer for Super 8 if you haven't yet. Only a few weeks left until it hits theaters!
Relationships are tested when a small town experiences extraordinarily fantastic "other-worldly" events. This sci-fi film stars Joel Courtney, Zach Mills, Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Noah Emmerich, Ron Eldard.
Super 8 is both written and directed by visionary director J.J. Abrams, who started his career with "Lost" and "Alias" before first directing Mission: Impossible III then Star Trek last summer. This is being produced by Steven Spielberg at Amblin, Relativity and Bad Robot. According to early reports, this was inspired by Spielberg's sci-fi films from the 70's and 80's. Paramount will be bringing Super 8 to theaters everywhere starting on June 10th this summer. You can stay up-to-date by visiting: super8-movie.com.
