Must Watch: Breathtaking Super Bowl Spot for J.J. Abrams' 'Super 8'
Holy crap! Paramount debuted this Super Bowl TV spot for J.J. Abrams' Super 8 during the game and it looks absolutely superb - like E.T. meets Stand By Me. All we'd seen for this sci-fi thriller previously was a very interesting teaser trailer last year that didn't even feature any cast. Super 8 stars first-time kid actors Zach Mills, Ryan Lee, Joel Courtney, as well as a few bigger names: Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Noah Emmerich, Ron Eldard and Amanda Michalka. This truly has an old school Amblin feel to it and I just love it. It's one of my most anticipated movies this summer and I'm fully sucked into the mystery of it, too.

Relationships are tested when a small town experiences extraordinarily fantastic "other-worldly" events.
Super 8 (which is supposedly a tentative title, but that doesn't seem to be the case) is written & 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 of the 70's and 80's. Paramount will be bringing Super 8 to theaters everywhere, not in 3D, starting on June 10th this summer.
