The fourth and final preview clip from Super 8 aired on Fox Wednesday night, and though it doesn’t reveal as much as the third clip did, it still gives some clues to the plot. We also have a Japanese poster for the film from First Showing that really plays up the Spielberg connection. See it all after the break.
In the clip, the kids run away from the crash when the military come, and they think they are scott free, but are they? (Hint: no). It seems like Dr. Woodward (the man in the truck) was being chased by the military, otherwise, how’d they get there so fast? Obviously, the sets of clips are sort of a sampling of the larger scene, but I still can’t imagine it was long enough for the military to find out about it and come out there.
Here is the Japanese poster that evokes the old Steven Spielberg movies of the 70s and 80s and Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T.. Spielberg is a producer on Super 8, and director/writer J.J. Abrams has said that this film is an homage to those classic sci fi tales.
Super 8 opens in theaters and IMAX on June 10th.
