J.J. Abrams Allows ‘Super 8′ Plot To Escape His Hatch Of Mysteries

Thursday, March 10 by

Somewhere, deep below the surface of the earth, there is a heavily guarded vault containing all of J.J. Abrams‘ story secrets. All the stuff that was never answered on “Lost,” what becomes of the Cloverfield monster, and until recently, the plot of his new film Super 8, which Abrams wrote and directed. Well, now that last mystery has been allowed above ground, thanks to the folks at Paramount. Behold – the plot:

In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making 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.

There’s a rumor that says the official trailer will debut this weekend at Battle: Los Angeles. Then fanboys will get to examine the trailer for clues, examine those clues for clues, and examine their lives and whether they’re using them properly.

Produced by Steven Spielberg, and starring Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka, and Kyle ChandlerSuper 8 crashes into theaters June 10th. (Collider)
