New J.J. Abrams/Spielberg SUPER 8 teaser trailer arrives (video)

These videos keep getting taken down, but here is the teaser trailer for the upcoming Steven Spielberg produced and J.J. Abrams directed action flick, Super 8. It debuted with Iron Man 2 at midnight last night. The title refers to the brand of the 8 mm camcorder that supposedly records the event. This appears to be a merger of Spielberg style action films and J.J. Abrams Cloverfield project (a favorite of mine). Abrams is very hot right now, producing last year's Star Trek and a number of successful TV shows including Lost, Fringe, Felicity, Alias, and the upcoming series Undercovers. He also wrote Joy Ride and Armageddon. Not bad.

This looks fun, though Deadline reports that it hasn't begun shooting yet. Super 8 is scheduled to hit theaters next summer. What do you guys think?

GODZILLA to be remade by Hollywood...again

He probably won't look like this, however. Legendary Pictures--the studio behind a large number of big budget titles as of late including The Dark Knight and Clash of the Titans--has obtained the rights to produce another American Godzilla film, reports Variety. It will not be a sequel to Roland Emmerich's 1998 Godzilla movie, starring Matthew Broderick and a big-jawed zilla. That film made over $400 million dollars worldwide, but squabbling between studios prevented a sequel from 'hatching.' Japan's Toho Co. owns the rights to Godzilla and will distribute the film in Japan. Toho has released more than 25 Godzilla films since 1954. The brand new Godzilla film is being readied for a 2012 launch.
