Super 8 Super Bowl TV Spot Analysis

During the Super Bowl this past weekend, a new tv spot for Super 8 was aired.  The previous trailers failed to show much of what the film is actually about, but this one blew me away.  The film is being produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by J.J. Abrams (Star Trek).  That alone would make any science-fiction fan take notice.  The thing that is special about this trailer is that it channels Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T (Aliens and a cast of strong child performers).  Watch the thirty second tv spot and I’m sure you will join me on the hype train.


00:13 in the trailer we see something about to rip through what looks like a plane
00:17 Flashing Car lights (Close Encounters anyone?)
00:19 looks like some kind of mass exodus
