Update #2: Second clip inside.
Update: A new clue has surfaced in one of the various TV spots. As displayed in the poster, the water tower is the focal point as a ball of light emanates from behind it. In the newer TV spots it’s implied that whatever “it” is can be found IN said water tower as it’s literally covered in metal from objects around the town (you can see all of the objects being pulled upwards in various spots).
Moviefone has premiered the first official clip from Paramount Pictures’ Super 8 that teams director J.J. Abrams with producers Steven Spielberg.
“In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.”
The following clip displays said kids filming their movie right before a train crashes–and potentially smashes a little girl. See the Super 8 on June 10.
