paramount reveal official synopsis for super 8

Following reports that a new trailer will be attached to theatrical prints of BATTLE: LOS ANGELES, Paramount have taken it upon themselves and posted the official synopsis for low-budget sci-fi thriller SUPER 8.

Directed by J.J. Abrams (STAR TREK), and produced by the legendary Steven Spielberg (E.T.), SUPER 8 has been shrouded in mystery ever since the first teaser trailer appeared online early last year.

A co-production between Paramount, Bad Robot Productions, and Amblin Entertainment, SUPER 8 is a homage to 1980's cinema and stars Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Amanda Michalka, Zach Mills and Gabriel Basso, as well as a host of other relatively unknown actors. Check out the official synopsis after the break.

The official synopsis is as follows:

"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."

SUPER 8 is scheduled to hit cinemas across the country on June 8.

In the meantime, why not re-watch the original teaser trailer, available below:
