Watch the lead up to Super 8’s fantastic train wreck


That’s a literal train wreck, mind. Every early indicator says that Super 8 is going to be a doozy. Anyway, this clip from Super 8 shows the young stars of the film preparing to make their movie at a nearby train station, only to watch the train crash spectacularly. It’s a really, really solid clip. It gives a good look for the feel of the movie, as well as the interplay between the kids. I’m getting a Goonies vibe from their relationship, which is about as high a praise as I can give about a group of child/teen actors. And for those of you worrying about spoilers, this clip is fairly spoiler-lite. The biggest “spoiler-y” moment is the train crash, but really, if you saw even the very, very first teaser, you knew that was coming.
