Thompson on Hollywood

Well, I finally saw, here at the Star Cinema in Cannes, the 20 minutes of J.J. Abrams' Super 8 (June 10) Paramount had screened to media in New York and exhibitors at CinemaCon. The footage looks very Spielbergian, and serves to set up the film's characters, a group of teen guys and one girl (Elle Fanning) as they film a super 8 movie at a train station, when a truck veers onto the tracks and causes a stupendous train crash that lets out something wicked and alien into the area.

My feverish anticipation for this film has been somewhat tempered by the realization that it's yet another monster movie. Sigh. It's looks well-made and scary undoubtedly. And thus it will be a huge commercial hit, not just due to the participants involved, but the fact that it's an original, not a well-worn piece of franchise material.

Paramount's three sneak peaks have hit Fox and the internet as well as an official teaser trailer. The first two Fox clips include material I saw; number three has more new stuff.
