Trailer Tuesday

So this was the super-duper-hush-hush secret Super 8 teaser attached to Iron Man 2 prints this past weekend. JJ Abrams’ third film as director, first time as writer. Produced by Steven Spielberg. Clearly they are playing on audience familiarity since that shot of the railway stoplight and model pickup truck is directly from Close Encounters. Naturally, there is a lot of comparisons to that very famous Cloverfield teaser in front of Transformers. Both are short and effective, they set up the premise effectively and don’t reveal to the audience what will be set free. Even more interesting is the footage for this Super 8 teaser was shot just for the teaser. Principal photography commences next month, it hasn’t even been cast yet.
