Until about 20 minutes ago, we’ve known precious little about this summer’s super-secretive, J.J. Abrams-directed, Steven Spielberg-produced Super 8. Previous teasers have spilled few details: an exploding train here, a felled telephone pole there. But now, thanks to the brand-new trailer that just debuted during the Super Bowl, we finally have some details. Judging from the all-too-quick spot, the movie looks very Spielbergian in tone and mood. The wondrous music, the small-town Americana, the kid riding his bike through a field. “Do not speak of this. If you do, they will find you.” What else? Elle Fanning looks tall next to that kid. And Kyle Chandler stares intensely at… what?
In other trailer news, Captain America also premiered. How does Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers feel after turning into Captain America? “Taller.”
And here’s Thor.
