Super 8 Trailer!

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the modern day E.T..; even right down to the Amblin logo that prefaces the trailer, this is J.J. Abrams take on the boy-meets-alien movie that Spielberg perfected in the late 70's with Close Encounters and E.T... Hell, Spielberg is even producing the film which is set around the exact same time period as both of those films

The trailer will indicate, however, a much darker twist to this story. Instead of Reeses Pieces, it looks like this creature feasts on chaos and tears.  Abrams knocked the Star Trek reboot out of the park, and I am pretty convinced that anything the auteur has complete control over will be amazing; if Super 8 is as good as the early reports have indicated, we may be witness to the rise of Abrams as Spielberg's heir in the medium of film.
