In the summer of 1979, six friends team up to film a movie—on Super 8 film—and just so happen to witness a horrifying train crash. The group soon realizes they’ve filmed something more sinister than an accident as their town is ravaged by disappearances and eerie events.
The film’s writer/director J.J. Abrams and producer Steven Spielberg teamed up for this summertime blockbuster, which showcases the flair of both for big action and dramatic tension. But beyond some signature thrills and eye-popping action sequences, Super 8 also hones in on Spielberg’s other specialty: coming-of-age stories set against improbable backdrops.
