SUPER 8

It is summer 1979, and middle-schooler Joe Lamb (Joel Courtney) and his group of friends in small-town Ohio are shooting a Super 8 film when they witness a catastrophic train crash. The pre-teens suspect the crash may not have been an accident when unusual disappearances and unsettling events begin to beset the town, and Joe’s father, local Deputy Jackson Lamb (Kyle Chandler), initiates a mission to uncover the truth. STAND BY ME meets Spielbergian sci-fi action in this coming-of-age gem from director J.J. Abrams (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III, STAR TREK). With Elle Fanning.
