SUPER 8: First Teaser Poster Proves J.J. Abrams’ View Is Askew

Just last week, Paramount Pictures released the synopsis and first, full-length theatrical trailer and official synopsis for director J.J. Abrams (Star Trek) forthcoming, super-secret movie that’s not only inspired by Steven Spielberg but produced by the iconic director as well.

Now, we get the first official poster and it’s a little bit disorienting. Check it out below, along with the trailer and synopsis in case you missed them the first time!

Theatrical Trailer: Super 8

In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a 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.

Super 8, directed by J.J. Abrams and starring Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills and Amanda Michalka is slated to hit theaters on June 10th, 2011.
