SUPER 8: First Full-Length Trailer and Synopsis for Director J.J. Abrams’ Top Secret Film

Last month, during the Super Bowl, we were treated to the very first teaser trailer 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. The teaser didn’t give us a ton of insight into the story of the film but, it definitely brought forth questions and gave us a glimpse into the “feel” of the movie.

Now, Paramount Pictures has released the first, full-length theatrical trailer and official synopsis for the film, and the theatrical trailer is rumored to be on the big-screen in front of Battle: Los Angeles this weekend. Check out the synopsis and the trailer below!

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.
