Japanese Super 8 Poster is Spielbergian

|

I can’t wait for Super 8. From the beginning JJ Abrams has said it’s meant to be a loving tribute to the Spielberg movies of the 70s and 80s. Then Spielberg himself became involved, and even resurrected the Amblin logo for the movie. Then the trailers hit and the movie is really starting to look like the Spielberg movies I grew up with. Now First Showing has gotten their hands on the Japanese Super 8 poster, and it really invokes Close Encounters of the Third Kind. There are some rumors that it isn’t as sugary sweet as say, E.T., but it combines elements of E.T. and Close Encounters with a little bit of John Carpenter. We’ll all know for sure in a couple weeks how it turned out.
