Paramount has released a full-length trailer for J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg's Super 8 (June 10). Here are seven reasons to be excited about the original 70s-set filmmaking thriller.

The studio has launched the first exclusive trailer premiere on Twitter. Paramount is also syncing its Twitter and Facebook accounts to make use of both platforms. The film stars Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Joel Courtney, Gabriel Basso, Noah Emmerich, Ron Eldard, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee and Zach Mills.

    (Trailer, not teaser, of course.)

    That teaser looks good and wonderfully Spielbergian. But as this was written by Abrams the film will probably be another empty vessel à la Lost and Cloverfield, all tease and effects and no resonant story with heart and meaning. (I'd love to be proven wrong, though.) I'll go see it if Manohla likes it.

    This could be many things. It could be another "War of The Worlds"or it could be another "E.T.". I am hoping for the latter.
