It's all action and dinosaur noises in a new Super 8 trailer

06.06.2011

MTV is giving us more than just an award show that exists for the sole purpose of giving Twilight movies the recognition they so clearly deserve. Rather, they've debuted a new trailer for SUPER 8, one of the most anticiapted films of the summer due to the involvement of JJ Abrams and the fact that it's not based on a comic or children's toy.

The trailer is ALL action, and I actually prefer the original spot that starts out slow. We've seen very little from this film so far, and some might say this new trailer even gives up too much. But I do not say that and I think it's rather dumb to classify one new minute of footage in a film that's shown us about two minutes of total footage "spoilers," but watch with caution I suppose.

The most notable thing I took from the trailer was that whatever this thing is, it sounds an awful lot like the Cloverfield Monster as it emits what I can best describe as "dinosaur noises." As for the rest, watch for yourself.

Extra Tidbit: I'm hoping this is excellent, definitely seems like a solid ET/CLOSE ENCOUNTERS throwback.

I have a problem with this too

Although my problem lies more with the audience. Why do people complain up and down that "movies today suck!!1!" (something they've been saying for well over 20 years now) and that hollywood "Has run out of ideas!!1!" THEN this ET/Close Encounters rip-off comes along and every gets wet over it?

Sweetness... This new trailer didnt really give away anything that hasnt already been speculated on. Looks like were going to get some decent story along with some great action.

Everyone seems to be forgetting the sentient matter, and flying cubes - which are probably one in the same. It's more aliens than dinosaurs, folks.

From the sounds in this new trailer I wouldn't necessarily suspect the monsters to be dinosaurs. But between dinosaurs being mentioned here by Mr. Tassi and in the Jurassic Park article by Mr. Sampson I guess the cat's out of the bag.

Thanks guys.

Just because the noises in this trailer sounds like dinosaurs doesn't mean they are, and Paul Tassi didn't give away any spoilers. He just observed what he thought the sounds resembled, and anyone could make the same comparison just from watching the trailer.


As for the Jurassic Park reference, how does that give anything away? This movie is produced by Steven Spielberg and has some similar elements to Spielberg's classic sci-fi films. The comparison could be about the suspense and

As for the Jurassic Park reference, how does that give anything away? This movie is produced by Steven Spielberg and has some similar elements to Spielberg's classic sci-fi films. The comparison could be about the suspense and horror elements that were used so effectively in Jurassic Park; it doesn't mean the monster is a dinosaur, just that it was filmed in a matter similar to the way the dinosaurs were shot by Spielberg.


I haven't seen the movie, but I don't think the "spoilers" you mention give anything away. You are only inferring based on a film comparison and an observation (see:opinion) of some noises in the trailer. Hardly concrete.

Unless these guys are privy to information nobody else has, or are able to see things in this trailer that we cannot, I think it's pretty safe to say the "dinosaurs" comment was pure speculation.

But I'm sure they're flattered that you ascribe so much authority onto them :)

Whoa, I was not suggesting the monster in this movie is literally a dinosaur.
