Sunday's MTV Movie Awards broadcast was a bounty of new movie trailers, from The Twilight Saga: New Moon to Fright Night to this, the latest (and presumably last) teaser for J.J. Abrams' sci-fi thriller Super 8. Introduced during the show by Abrams, executive producer Steven Spielberg and stars Elle Fanning and Joel Courtney, the video starts off with the by-now-quite-familiar scene of the train derailment before revealing quite a bit of new footage.
Set in a small Ohio town in the summer of 1979, Super 8 follows a group of friends who, while shooting a zombie movie, witness a train derail and something escape from the wreckage. Soon afterward, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place, and the local deputy attempts to uncover the terrifying truth.
Super 8, which opens Friday, stars Kyle Chandler, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Amanda Michalka and Zach Mills.
