This week, Paramount Pictures has been premiering mini-clips from the Steven Spielberg-produced JJ Abrams-directed 1980’s Amblin film homage Super 8. Each 30-second clip has premiered on Fox at 8pm, with the last one scheduled to air Wednesday.
We’ve posted the first two clips, the first of which showed the kids preparing to shoot their Super 8 zombie movie before the big train crash, and the second of which showed what happens to the kids during the train crash.
The third clip is a continuation, another 30 seconds of footage, showing what happens after the train crash. While the first two clips pretty much showed what happened in the teaser trailer but from the kid’s perspective, this is the first clip in the series that I would warn against watching if you’re worried about learning plot points or spoilers no yet shown in the previous advertising. Watch the new clip embedded after the jump.

Quite an achievement, especially in this current climate of trailers that give the impression that you’ve just seen the whole film, even if that’s not the case.
Anyway, there is also a new poster for the film, and we’ve got a high-res version after the break. Read More »
