New ‘Super 8' Trailer: Still No Creature

Maybe the monster is actually invisible. Think about that. [post-album postid="214221" item="1"]Last night, Super 8 stars Joel Courtney and Elle Fanning appeared at the "MTV Movie Awards" alongside total oldsters JJ Abrams and Stephen Spielberg to present a new trailer. Once again, we don't see the monster or creature or alien or whatever it is that is tearing this small town to shreds. But we do get to see a small town get torn to shreds. So there's that!!
This film just keeps looking better and better and I'm really looking forward to seeing it this weekend. It is such a tease though to not show the creature thingamabob. Is it done intentionally to build buzz? Or is there another reason. Perhaps it has boobs for a face. I guess we'll find out on Friday.

New ‘Super 8' Clip: Kids Are Afraid Of Guns And Monsters

Children are such scaredy cats when it comes to guys with bloody faces pointing guns at them. Children are such scaredy cats when it comes to guys with bloody faces pointing guns at them. That's what we learn from the newest clip from J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated Super 8. The preview above takes place after the train crash. The kids are poking around the wreckage, hanging out, finding important maps 'n' stuff, when all of a sudden - bam - crazy guy with a bunch of guns. Man, Super 8 is reminding me of Goonies more and more. It's about kids on an adventure, one of them's a tubbo, it's produced by Steven Spielberg, and now there's an important map. I hope the monster turns out to be a giant Sloth. Next clip airs tomorrow on Fox during "American Idol." Super 8' Kids" src="" alt='' width="300" height="225" />


An Alien Runs Amok In New ‘Super 8' Trailer

Soon, JJ Abrams transformation into Steven Spielberg will be complete. Soon, JJ Abrams transformation into Steven Spielberg will be complete. The new trailer for Super 8 wears Spielberg on its sleeve more than Spielberg and gives us more than we could have ever hoped for. The plot follows a group of kids who witness a train derailment and the escape of its strange cargo. Mysterious disappearances then plague their small town while the Army patrols the streets without providing any answers. Then things go insane. It looks like this summer's biggest hit without a doubt.


New ‘Super 8' TV Spot Will Take You Back

Will this be the one that finally gives the whole movie away? 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.


Ellen Page Looks Inappropriately Good In Trailer For ‘Super’

You won't have to join NBC Comedy Night's secret fight club anymore, if you want to see Rainn Wilson beat someone over the head with a wrench. You won't have to join NBC Comedy Night's secret fight club anymore, if you want to see Rainn Wilson beat someone over the head with a wrench. And it's all thanks to this trailer for James Gunn's vigilante comedy Super. I always wondered how The Punisher would have reacted if his wife up and left him, rather than being viciously murdered. Would he still feel the urge to take back the streets? Probably not. And the world would have to go without one sweet-ass skull design. But, that's exactly what happens in Super. Rainn Wilson's wife leaves him for Kevin Bacon's smooth-talking drug dealer and a war on crime is born. And, honestly, it's about time that someone was brave enough to step forward and tell crime to shut up.


‘Super 8' Gets A ‘Goonies’-esque Clip

Kids do the darndest things. Like videotaping vast governmental cover-ups. This edited clip (but not really a trailer) from Super 8 set to The Cars' "Bye Bye Love" doesn't really offer much new insight into the story being told, but does slant it in a new fashion. Rather than roll with the standard J.J. Abrams "We're gonna confuse and tease the hell out of you so you are frustrated into the theater," this clip (and the odd song pairing) creates a more whimsical, coming-of-age ambiance. [post-video postid="211813"] I really don't think that this avenue is Abrams' strong suit, but with Spielberg on board, perhaps some nostalgia slipped into the film. This is a manipulated 30-second clip, compared to lots of footage that show's this as a more conventional supernatural thriller, so I'm not convinced this isn't just for marketing. Nonetheless, it still makes the movie look pretty awesome.


See A Super New Clip From 'Super 8'

Production value! Super 8 is in the midst of a big promotional push from Paramount. As part of that push, they've released yet another clip from the movie, this one showing that wacky gang of movie-making kids taking advantage of that train that explodes and runs off the tracks, setting the wheels of the mysterious plot in motion. Enjoy, and remember: Don't mess around with trains. They're dangerous even when they're not exploding. [post-video postid="212982"]


Orlando Bloom Seems Super Drunk

America, nay, Planet Earth, I hope you're ready to get lost in Orlando Bloom's eyes all over again. America, nay, Planet Earth, I hope you're ready to get lost in Orlando Bloom's eyes all over again. "Entertainment Tonight" stopped by the set of that Paul W.S. Anderson version The Three Musketeers that I can't imagine anybody will want to go see (which, of course, means it will be the hugest hit and everyone except me will start wearing those queer floppy hats with the big feathers sticking out) to listen to Orlando Bloom act really, really high. Not to compliment his acting, but I can't tell if he's faking it or not. He's either doing an imitation of Captain Jack Sparrow or turning into Joaquin Phoenix. Or did he have a stroke? Whichever is the case, it's pretty sad. The Orlando Bloom Beard Watch begins...... now.


Watch Oprah Milk Tears Out Of Pharrell's Eyes

"Why'm I crying on Oprah?" Oprah sat down with Pharrell to seemingly interview him about his career in music, but her secret motive was to harvest his tears for use in various potions. Oprah shows Pharrell a supercut of people around the world making their own videos to his song "Happy," and the result causes him to mist up. That's when she drops the hammer by mentioning his deceased grandmother. That's some expert tear-jerking, Oprah. Now all you need is a dragon scale and a child's love and you'll rule all the kingdoms. Seeing Pharrell this overcome makes me want to give him a pass for writing one of the more infectious and grating songs in recorded history. I ain't even mad. Though, I do find it disingenuous that man who loves hats so much should sing about a room without a roof.


Have A Quick Look At The ‘Super 8' Alien In This New Viral Video

OF COURSE there's a 'Super 8' viral Easter Egg video. [post-album postid="215508" item="1"]Those not fortunate enough to get an early look at Super 8 (and subsequently berate it) are likely curious about the film's secrets and what the alien looks like and if Kyle Chandler is nice or not and does JJ Abrams work out and if so how does he find the time. Well, this video should help with some of those questions. Over the last few months, clips from a 1960's secret military video were released to various websites. Now on the day of the film's early release, those clips have been pieced together and feature the early scientific research into the film's alien. Be advised that the video contains minor plot spoilers as well as a glimpse of the alien. If you want to see the film with fresh eyes, don't watch the video. But please pour over my words and tell me if you see us sealing the deal tonight. I mean, c'mon. Bus rides and extra value meals add up, you know. (Yahoo)


First Footage Of Spielberg's 'Lincoln' Is Lacking Vampires

Here's the trailer for the trailer. You're welcome. After a long wait, we're finally treated to a taste of Steven Spielberg's Lincoln. Remember this moment. It is the culmination of years of planning, casting setbacks, and however long it takes Daniel Day-Lewis to grow a beard. There's not much to see in these brief clips, but we are given some soundbites. Is that really the voice Day-Lewis is using for Lincoln? That's not Lincoln-y at all. I think I prefer the original Bane voice to this. We'll learn a lot more about the film when the full trailer debuts on Thursday. Perhaps the camera will continue to dolly around to reveal Abe in full penny pose.
