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.
Directed by J.J. Abrams from his original script, the Bad Robot / Amblin Entertainment Production is produced by Steven Spielberg, Abrams and Bryan Burk. The film stars Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Joel Courtney, Gabriel Basso, Noah Emmerich, Ron Eldard, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee and Zach Mills. Super 8 arrives in theaters June 10.
Update (12:38PM): Okay, the website looks to finally be working, so visit www.Super8Secret.com and see if you can reserve a screening ticket. The site wasn't working for a while at the start, but is back up now!
We're incredibly excited to be a part of this and I'm even more excited that FirstShowing and SlashFilm are hosting the Los Angeles screening, as this is now our home and we love the fans here. We've been covering Super 8 since the very beginning, even going all the way back to Cloverfield, but it's the moment you've all been waiting for as J.J.'s latest sci-fi blockbuster is finally about to hit theaters. If you're in Los Angeles and can make it to the screening, we'll see you there tomorrow night! If not, you can hit the viral website to get more info on other early screening locations, or we suggest buying tickets to see it in theaters this weekend.
