Here it is, *(drops party bag of Doritos and pulls up underwear)* the full length official trailer for J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg’s Super 8, a film that’s rapidly shaping up to be this summer’s main blockbuster.

The movie tells the story of a group of kids from a sleepy American town in Ohio, who witness a train crash which has bizarre after effects on their home town, as dogs go missing, shop workers are dragged through windows and women walk about in ridiculously tight jeans.

From the look of the film it’s going heavy with 70s styled Spielbergesque nostalgia, (Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, E.T, Jaws), which, for us at least, makes a welcome return to the big screen. We really do miss those atmospheric movies. You know, the one’s with a plot and shit!
