MTV Movie Awards Clips for ‘Super 8′ & ‘Planet of the Apes’

The MTV Movie Awards is (apparently) airing as we speak, where they’ve debuted a number of “extended” clips from a few of this summer’s biggest movies.

Inside you’ll find an extended look at the opening train crash sequence from Paramount Pictures’ Super 8 (review), the J.J. Abrams-directed sci-fi thriller that gives homage to ’80s Steven Spielberg films. It opens in theaters this coming Friday, June 10.

Also inside is some fresh scenes – also mixing in trailer footage – from Twentieth Century Fox’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the prequel to Tim Burton’s remake that arrives in theaters August 5. It’s set in present day San Francisco and deals with the aftermath of man’s experiments with genetic engineering that lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.
