Just the other day, J.J. Abrams finally opened up about SUPER 8. Today, the boys at Bloody Disgusting came across the above image - which might just be the first glimpse of the film's monster - while panning through the new TV spot. They also discovered hidden references to "Lost" and a few other interesting bits. Perhaps most curious is the fact that the frames in question have since been removed from the trailer for its posting on Apple.
Do you think we're looking at the reflection of the alien creature? We all know that Abrams is great at being sneaky with his viral videos.
SUPER 8 is set in Ohio in 1979 and introduces a troupe of six youngsters who are using a Super 8 camera to make their own zombie movie. One fateful night, their project takes them to a lonely stretch of rural railroad tracks and, as the camera rolls, calamity strikes — a truck collides with an oncoming locomotive and a hellacious derailment fills the night with screaming metal and raining fire. Then something emerges from the wreckage, something decidedly inhuman.
The movie is produced by Steven Spielberg and stars Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka (below), Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard and Noah Emmerich. It hits theaters on June 10th via Paramount Pictures.
