Japanese ‘Super 8′ Poster Adds Some Crazy

If you’re a fan of J.J. AbramsStar Trek, you might have watched the Super 8 trailer and thought to yourself, “where’s all my beloved excessive lens flare?” Leave it the Japanese to light a “flare” under this movie’s ass.

The poster below is the Japanese one-sheet for Super 8, directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg. There are a couple of touches that make their version just a bit weirder than ours, like what’s the deal with all the different lights? Are there gonna be multiple alien monsters, piloting different ships? Also, the lights and the placement of the kids kinda looks like a skull, and all that crazy alien writing is just messed up. Oh, that’s Japanese, the language of Japan? Never mind that last one, everybody.
