Some details about a preview of Super 8, to be directed by J.J. Abrams and shown this weekend before Iron Man 2 at theaters, have emerged.
Abrams is working on Super 8 with Stephen Spielberg, who will produce the film which has a forty-five million dollar budget and will be released next summer.
The details of the Super 8 trailer, set in the 1970s, are as follows: “A pickup truck veers onto a train track, heading directly for a locomotive. The legend appears: ‘In 1979, the US Air Force closed a section of Area 51. All the materials were to be transported to a secure facility in Ohio.’ The truck hits the train, and both fly off the tracks in an explosion. Focus on one train car that was spared, and a heavy pounding is heard from inside.”
