The first clip from Super 8 was released ant while it looks great. I’m still having a lot of trouble getting excited about the new JJ Abrams movie. Is it a kid’s movie? Is it family friendly horror? Is it a movie for grown ups that focuses on kids… like Stand By Me?

I’m a big fan of most of Abrams’ Stuff. I’m even really looking forward to Alcatraz, which I’ll be posting a trailer for after this, but something about this just feels kind of uninspired. That said, he’s got a major history of keeping stuff under his belt and not giving too many details so people can experience the movie with fresh eyes. I’m hoping that’s the case here.

Anyways. Here’s the new clip and some TV spots that just came out last night.
