With a summer movie slate crammed full of sequels, prequels, reboots and comic book adaptations, leave it to director JJ Abrams to deliver something original. The full trailer for his science fiction adventure 'Super 8' is here, capping off a year of mysterious teases regarding the film's plot and concept.

This full trailer thankfully leaves a lot of things unanswered (can we all agree that going into a movie not knowing every detail of the plot sounds pretty darn refreshing?), but what we do see looks unique -- a summer blockbuster that's truly going to stand out from the rest of the pack.

Here's the recently released official synopsis, itself also little more than a tease:

"In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth -- something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined."

And really, what else do you need to know? Check out the trailer after the jump.
