Super 8 hits cinemas in South Africa at the end of July. Here’s why you should watch it:-
1. Steven Spielberg – No further elaboration required.
2. JJ Abrams – Creator of Alias and Lost and director of M:I-3, Star Trek (96% on Rotten Tomatoes). He knows how to make quality entertainment.
3. Kyle Chandler – You may remember him from Early Edition, and love him from Friday Night Lights. This will be his biggest feature film role to date. He is awesome.
4. Nostalgia – Super 8 is a throwback to Spielberg’s early movies from the 70’s and 80’s. It is going to have a certain charm about it that today’s blockbusters will never match.
5. The Mystery… finally going to the cinema where you’re not sure what will happen. For interests sake, check out JJ Abrams ‘Mystery Box’ T.E.D. talk
6. It’s Original… It’s a blockbuster that is not based on a book, a comic, a tv series and it’s not a sequel.
7. The Trailer
8. The Poster – Scroll back up and agree that there’s just something about the posters that screams ‘magical!’
