After making his feature film acting debut in Super 8, Joel Courtney instantly became an up and coming actor to watch. For Joel Courtney and Super 8, which lands on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, November 22, getting to act in a sci-fi action film directed by J.J. Abrams and executive produced by Steven Spielberg was the opportunity of a lifetime.

In Super 8, Joel Courtney plays Joe Lamb, the lead in a group of kids who shoot their own Super 8 movie but find themselves on the run from a mysterious creature after a train derails in their town. Although the Super 8 kids grow closer as they try to save the town, Joe forms a special bond with Ellie Dainard (Elle Fanning) who shares a similar family history through her father.

Ahead of the November 22 Blu-ray release of Super 8, The Deadbolt went one-on-one with Joel Courtney for an exclusive chat about bonding with the other actors, working with Elle Fanning, how he relates to Joe Lamb, and what it was like to work with both J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg on Super 8.
