J.J. Abrams‘s Super 8 is a throwback to another era. More specifically, it’s a throwback to the 70s and 80s – even more specifically, a throwback to the scifi movies of Steven Spielberg that came out in those decades. Movies like ET and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (OK, pretty much just those two) that combined slick excitement with a true sense of wonder and awe.

So it is with this TV spot, which reminds me of those halcyon days when commercials didn’t feature iPhone apps, computer-manipulated talking babies, or dumb-looking guys in glasses. Watch it, and remember what it was like to watch commercials for movies in a simpler time.

‘Sup.

This is the first movie poster I’ve seen that’s perfectly designed for Friday. On Friday, you’re bored at your desk, waiting to leave work, with your tilted head resting on your hand and arm, about to fall asleep. You come across this poster for director J.J. AbramsSuper 8, produced by Steven Spielberg, starring Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler and Ron Eldard. You think, “why are the words oriented wrong?” Then your boss says you can go, you tilt your head back up the right way, and you think, “uh, wait, why is the landscape oriented wrong?” There’s a pause, and then you think, “oh, cool.”

You saw the trailer, now check out this mysterious poster for a film that’s clearly at the intersection of Abram Drive and Spielberg Blvd, near What All The Best 80′s Kids Movies Were Like Municipal Park. Speaking of nostalgia, that glowing water tower – do you suppose Yakko, Wakko and Dot are in there? I think the answer is almost certainly… “yes.”

Super 8 monster-stomps into theaters June 10th. Click the image for a slightly larger version. (Dread Central)

‘Super 8′ Casts More People http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/super-8-casts-more-people/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/super-8-casts-more-people/#comments Tue, 21 Sep 2010 18:06:21 +0000 Reza F. J.J. Abrams has rounded out his cast for the seeeeeecret Steven Spielberg-produced Super 8, with Ron Eldard topping the additions. Last week we learned that Kyle Chandler and Elle Fanning are taking the leads, and now the star of "Men Behaving Badly" will get a chance to spare with aliens, if indeed there is sparing. Abrams has also let Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee and Zach Mills into the Super 8 club. Still not much is known about the film except that some kids capture aliens on their Super 8 camera. If you see one of these new cast members out at a bar, get them drunk and spilling the beans. There's a SJ shirt/wash rag in it for ya. (THR)
