Here’s a pretty exciting short clip from the set of J.J. Abram’s upcoming sci-fi thriller “Super 8.” It’s quite a change from all the docile and rather boring set images we’ve been seeing lately. From the looks of the clip, it seems as if the 1970’s era military is deep in the heat of battle with unknown alien forces in what use to be a quiet suburban neighborhood.

While you don’t get to see any aliens, you do get a nice feel of how the final film may look in action. Check out the clip below and let us know what you think!
