Super 8 Update

Long ago I posted about an upcoming film entitled, Super 8. After many months of waiting a little more info has come out about the plot and we've got a more in depth trailer. According to Abrams in a recent interview with The LA Times "This is a movie about overcoming loss and finding your way again and finding your own voice. ... A boy whose lost his mother and the man whose lost his wife. There's this father who, because of the era, never really had to be the parent. He's a good man, he works hard, he's a deputy in the town, but he's never stepped up as father." It looks and sounds like a Spielbergian E.T./Close Encounters/Goonies type flick which I absolutely love. When I dream of writing feature films these are the gold standard for me personally. They are the flicks I grew up watching. To read more visit the LA Times link embedded earlier in the article. Or just sit back and enjoy the extended trailer. Ladies and Gentlenerds, Super 8.
