Super 8 (2011) Plot & Synopsis


Starring Dale Dickey, Bingo O'Malley, Bruce Greenwood, Greg Grunberg, Janis Jones

Directed by J.J. Abrams

Two Hollywood heavy hitters team up for this Paramount Pictures release that finds director J.J. Abrams working with producer Steven Spielberg for the first time on a film that reportedly hearkens back to the early days of Spielberg’s Amblin films.

Synopsis: SPOILER: 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.

Tagline: It arrives.

Storyline: During the summer of 1979, a group of friends witness a train crash and investigate subsequent unexplained events in their small town.
