J.J. Abrams and Spielberg Discuss the Passion for Film in ‘Super 8′ Blu-ray Trailer

A lot of people considered Super 8 to be J.J. Abrams‘ tribute to youthful, spirited adventure and sci-fi films of generations past—it’s likely that whichever of these movies you loved as a child was the one you felt most channeled by Super 8 (for me, it was The Goonies; for the friend I saw Super 8 with, it was E.T.…the options are numerous).

So, it’s fitting, and a lot of fun, to see Abrams and the film’s producer Steven Spielberg talk about their own youthful plights in filmmaking. The below featurette, and preview for the upcoming Super 8 Blu-ray pack, offers the points of view of Abrams, Spielberg and Super 8 castmembers Jade Griffiths and Gabriel Basso, on the movie and being a child fascinated by the making of and working with film.

Super 8 comes out on Blu-ray, with dozens of additional special features, on Nov. 22.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
