While the trailer for Super 8 was bootlegged last week, it’s now available to watch online in full quality, in all sorts of marvelous HD formats. You can watch it in bigger HD qualities over at Apple, but I’ve embedded a YouTube upload of the video below for you to watch right away:
I’d held back on watching it till now, and after seeing it for the first time, I’m pretty damn excited. From J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg, masterminds who have worked on Cloverfield, Lost, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Jurassic Park, you just know there have got to be at least some awesome sci-fi, mystery, monster ideas. According to many, this project has nothing to do with Cloverfield, which I’m glad about, because I’d much rather have something original (not that I wouldn’t like to see some sort of prequel or sequel to that at some point).
The mysteriousness and “monsteressness” of the trailer is enough to get me extremely pumped – also the fact that it has anything to do with Area 51. I love this sort of secrecy, like they did with the first Cloverfield teaser…where nobody really knows anything about the movie, and we’re not shown much to go by. But yeah, this has quickly become one of my most anticipated films of the not-too-distant future, and it’s potentially gonna make 2011 an even better year.
