I love the nostalgic feel I get when I watch these two minutes and 22 seconds.

Super 8 is collaboration between J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg and looks like a nod to Spielberg’s earlier films which explains why I find this trailer so appealing.

What’s so appealing?

The appeal is that when watching the preview for Super 8 I feel the same exact excitement and magic I felt years ago when first viewing films such as Close Encounters, E.T., Poltergeist and Star Wars.

Magic may be a strong word but it is correct when describing my emotions for these films because back then magic meant more than entertainment, it meant hope.

Hope that the movies have the power to transport me to magical place where I can forget about everyday troubles and see the world through the eyes of a child.

That's a tall order.

Super 8 opens June 10th, 2011.

Looking forward to this one also.
