So, Super 8 is not the sequel to Cloverfield.
However, it clearly is another monster movie. Featuring aliens.
It does look very much like the kind of film Spielberg would have made if he'd opted to make Night Skies instead of ET, and seems to be set in the same milieu as Close Encounters Of The Third Kind.
More importantly, unlike Cloverfield, JJ Abrams is directing this one.
It's out summer 2011, which, I have to say, is starting to look very tasty for movie lovers.
Incidentally, youtube.com currently has a link up for the trailer that someone shot directly from the screen at a US cinema. I don't suppose it will be around for too much longer. Watch it while you can...
