“Super 8” the mysteries of the trailer…

One thing for sure that JJ Abrams and Spielberg did a great job on keeping the new trailer mysterious. The plot haven’t been revealed quite yet. The trailer showed a few kids filming their own zombie movie with a video camera at a railroad track. A train comes by and crashes through a truck. Then they discover a US Airforce cargo that was on the train, not sure where it came from and they try to investigate it. Something was trapped inside the cargo and trying to get out. Keeping that “thing” a mystery. They wouldn’t show you if it was an animal, a monster or an alien, whatever that thing is.

At about 1:37 in the trailer, you can briefly see that “thing” in the trailer, if you look closely. So it’s obviously some kind of creature or an alien. The trailer makes it look like that the town is in danger of this “thing”. If you notice in the trailer, the kids try to find the “thing” themselves by filming a documentary of it. Look like Kyle plays the town’s Sheriff and look like his job is to protect the town from danger.

The trailer wants to make it look like the film is violent and dark, with this mysterious “thing” in the film. Is this “thing” evil or actually friendly? There are too many questions that need to be answered. Once we actually see the film, I’m sure the film will be much different than the trailers we’ve seen.

Knowing that Spielberg is part of this film, I just hope this film won’t end like “Close Encounters” or “E.T.”. We’ve had enough of those endings where the aliens go back out in space. I hope the ending for “Super 8” will be different.

Most movie trailers make films so predictable, but this one is mysterious. They did a great job with the trailer, leaving us having no idea of what the movie is going to be like. Spielberg have done so many movies about aliens over the years, I’m hoping this one will be something different. I’m hoping the “thing” in this film will be evil and scary looking. Spielberg had enough family friendly aliens, hope this one will be a mean one.

It might not be an alien or a monster at all and the thing won’t even exist in the film. We’ll just have to wait and find out what it is when the film comes out in June.


Cool Video: New “Super 8” trailer with more footage from the film hits the web!

The JJ Abrams directed, Steven Spielberg produced sci-fi movie, “Super 8” have just hit the web this morning. It surfaced on twitter. The trailer is still keeping the monster or alien mysterious as you can see here.

The movie looks very cool. I’m happy for Kyle Chandler that he’ll get the recognition he deserves. I’m there in theaters when it comes out, June 10th. Hope it’s a good movie.


Thought: See what “Friday Night Lights” is doing to it’s cast?

“Friday Night Lights” is such a popular TV show that it’s giving the show’s cast members bigger opportunities for bigger film roles. Want some examples?

Taylor Kitsch landed a role as Bandit for “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and now he’s filming the leading role in “Battleship”. Connie Britton got herself a big role as Dr. Holbrook in the “Nightmare On Elm St.” remake. Kyle Chandler recently just got a leading role for JJ Abrams sci-fi flick, “Super 8”.

I’m sure big movie roles will happen to other FNL cast members too. I’m sure big movie role opportunities will come for Minka Kelly, Aimee Teegarden, Zach Gilford, Scott Porter, and Adrianne Palicki as well. The whole FNL cast are talented actors, they’ll all get big movie careers up ahead. They already shot, FNL Season 5, that’s why some of them are already working on films.


Report: Kyle Chandler gets a huge movie role to star the lead in a JJ Abrams flick, “Super 8”!!!!

“Friday Night Lights” star, Kyle Chandler has landed a huge role for JJ Abrams new upcoming film, “Super 8”. Also signed to the movie is teen star, Elle Fanning. Is Kyle playing Elle’s Dad in the film? That’s what it’s looking like.

See the article here.

Kyle has done movies other than “Friday Night Lights”, but Kyle never had any huge movie roles. With him doing FNL, will help make his movie career bigger. Congrats Kyle! Now I’m really looking forward to this movie. Kyle in a sci-fi movie, yeah! Can’t wait!
