The first official poster for J.J. Abrams’ upcoming film Super 8 was released today, the same day as the film’s first official trailer. It seems like a lot of people are excited about his film and I can see why, Abrams’ art direction is pretty near impeccable for what he’s trying to accomplish.

Movie posters have a tendency to be bland, corny, and often have too much text to be effective. This Super 8 poster however, does none of that. It perfectly conveys everything you need to know about this movie: J.J. Abrams, Steven Spielberg, Super 8, June 10. And not only that, but what really sets this poster apart is that it completely flips the axis of the shot vertically, declaring that this movie is not going to be like anything you’ve seen before.
