New Super 8 trailer brings new footage
Well, I have to admit I’ve stretched the truth a little with that title, the trailer is new, but for the most part it’s just the same as the previous, except when you get to the latter half and there’s some new footage.
Don’t be fooled though, this isn’t just some different footage thrown in to try and sell you a different trailer when there’s nothing really of consequence that’s changed, there’s plenty changed, and I think there’s a reason for it.
Looking at the footage in the latter half of the new IMAX trailer I wonder if this is meant to counter the current rumours about what the creature might be – you can see more of that here on Filmstalker, but be warned that it’s full of spoilers, if it does turn out to be true of course – for when you see the latter footage there’s a fair bit of action and someone who seems a little hysterical as he claims to have “seen it”.
This new IMAX Super 8 trailer doesn’t make me think that the creature of Super 8 is what the previous rumour was saying, I think what that was talking about is something recovered in the wreckage but may not be the creature itself. I’ll refrain from saying too much here.
Half a look at the new trailer and see what you think. In the meantime twenty minutes of the film are about to be shown to a select few in the U.S., we will have to await the outcome of that.
