In many ways Super 8 is the Inception of this summer. The original sci-fi blockbuster by created by one of cinema’s biggest names, who also has some adaptations of beloved sci-fi properties under his belt, that no one has any idea of the actual plot for. Admittedly, its nowhere near as Inception-y as Inception. I mean, basically all we knew about Inception going in was that Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt could steal ideas and dreaming was involved. Super 8 has a much more easily graspable and advertiseable plot, but that doesn’t mean that the ads aren’t being deliberately cagey, for good reason. There’s nothing better than a summer blockbuster that actually manages to surprise you.
