Brand New Super 8 Clips
See two exclusive chunks...

28 July 2011  |  Written by James White

It seems like we’ve been waiting ages for JJ Abrams’ alien invader-meets-coming of age tale Super 8, since America got to see it months ago. Well, the ticking clock has nearly reached its end and the film will arrive over here next Friday, August 5. And now we have two new, exclusive clips from the film for your staring pleasure.

The first clip finds young filmmakers Joe (Joel Courtney), Charles (Riley Griffiths), Cary (Ryan Lee), Martin (Gabriel Basso), Preston (Zach Mills) and Alice (Elle Fanning) kicking off some shooting for Charles’ latest masterpiece. They decide to include a passing train for what the wannabe Hitchcock describes as “production value” but are shocked when the speeding locomotive suddenly crashes…

 

In the second piece of footage, deputy sheriff Jackson Lamb (the ace Kyle Chandler) is trying to make sense of the chaos that has descended upon his previously sleepy town and then learns that his son, Joe, has vanished along with his pals. Naturally, he’s not pleased.

 

Keep your web browser pointed towards Empire for much more on the movie in the coming week…
