Paramount Pictures has released the official synopsis for J.J. Abrams’ secretive sci-fi project Super 8:
In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.
Abrams wrote and directed the project and produced it with Steven Spielberg and Bryan Burk.
Super 8 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 10, 2011.
