MTV: The 'Super 8' Trailer Reminds Us Of These Classic Films

MTV says that "The 'Super 8' Trailer Reminds Us Of These Classic Films."

Surely you know by now that the full-length “Super 8” trailer premiered last week, alongside a new official poster, which you can see past the jump. Frankly, we’re just a little bit obsessed with it, endlessly pressing play over and over and over again in an attempt to analyze every single frame the trailer has to offer. If it wasn't official before, it is now: "Super 8" is giving us goosebumps.

And why is that, exactly? Simple – it's because it makes us feel like we’re seven years old all over again. The trailer (or is it that Amblin logo?) triggers an almost Pavlovian response in those of us who grew up with Steven Spielberg’s films, and it’s pretty clear that “Super 8” will serve as an homage to his most beloved tales, with some signature J.J. Abrams action thrown in for good measure.

Here are the classic movies that MTV is flashing back to.

Paramount will have a monster studio presence during the Feb. 6 Super Bowl telecast

According to Hollywood Reporter, Paramount will have a "monster studio presence" during the Feb. 6 Super Bowl telecast.

With a little more than two weeks until Super Bowl XLV, Hollywood is finalizing its plan to take advantage of the most-watched television event of the year.

Paramount will have a monster studio presence during the Feb. 6 telecast, buying ad time to plug five films -- J.J. Abrams' alien-invasion pic Super 8, the threequel Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Gore Verbinski's CGI film Rango and Marvel's superhero pics Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger. All are high-priority event movies for the studio.

As in past years, the Super Bowl will provide the first glimpse of Hollywood's summer lineup. Disney has bought time during the game for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, while Universal and DreamWorks' will plug the Daniel Craig-Harrison Ford sci-fi western Cowboys & Aliens.

Rango opens March 4, followed by Thor on May 6, Pirates on May 20, Super 8 on June 10, Transformers on July 1, Captain America on July 22 and Cowboys on July 29.
