MTV: The "Super 8" Kids are All Right

From MTV Movie Blog:

The Kids Are All Right
While so many of the previews and the buzz surrounding "Super 8" has been about what's in the train (Vegas odds are on aliens) and all the strange happenstance that occurs after the train crash, the latest trailer emphasizes what a big role the kids in the movie will play. After all, its their super 8 camera that captures the big moment.

In the new trailer, we learn that a group of friends, with a penchant for making their own monster movies, stumble upon a real-life horror scene when they witness the crash that changes everything. The young cast -- which includes Elle Fanning and newcomer Joel Courtney -- seem to embody the childlike wonder, mystery, and amazement that Spielberg and Abrams have made so much a part of their classics. After all, what would "E.T." have been without Elliot, or "Lost" without Walt? Likewise, the kids of "Super 8" will no doubt be the key to figuring out what's going on here.
