Like many of us, I am a film fan. So when I heard that J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg have collaborated on a movie, I was undoubtedly thrilled. Despite disappointing some Abram’s fans, the film is not a continuation of Star Trek, but a horror film entitled Super 8.
Steven Spielberg needs no introduction, having created the Indiana Jones franchise and directed Jaws and Star Wars: A New Hope to name but a few. Abrams meanwhile is one of the best storytellers of our generation, having created Lost and Alias TV series, as well as writing the films Cloverfield and Star Trek XI.
Information regarding the plot of Super-8 is sketchy at best, but the trailer that does provide us with some details. Obviously, it is set in 1979, will probably revolve around Area 51, and likely to involve aliens (although I suspect it is not of Spielberg’s E.T. variety).
The title of the film, Super-8, implies connotations with the super 8mm film medium. With this in mind, people are suggesting that Super-8 could be the prequel/sequel to Abrams’ previous Cloverfield, a claim that Abrams is firmly denying.
Careful viewing of the trailer does reveal additional information. Letters hidden in the trailer spell “scariest thing I ever saw”, which leads to www.scariestthingIeversaw.com, a viral website created for the film. Also one instant clearly during the trailer shows an image of this boy.
Who is he? What is his role in the film? What does this all mean? I haven’t a clue.
