The latest trailer for Abrams’ Super 8 is a case in point.
As well as the new trailer, Paramount last night dispatched the following official blurb for the film:
In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.
Despite the obvious, material deviations, I’m standing by my Lady in White comparisons.
