The latest poster for Super 8 has arrived, and it is filled with ’80s goodness, not only in terms of style and feel, but also in the fact that it is done by Drew Struzan, the man behind the classic Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Big Trouble in Little China posters of our youth.  Well, my youth, not yours because I’m old…

UPDATE: According to IMDB, this is not a real Struzan, but a fan inspired take on his style.  So sad…

  1. Definitely a late 70’s/early 80’s feel (I, too, remember those days). Isn’t that when the movie is set?

  2. Are you sure it’s a Struzan? It’s in his style but doesn’t seem to be as…good. Looks more like an homage to Struzan and his style of posters, which would be in keeping with the overall film of the movie.

  3. Its a fake, that’s not Struzan. This art is definitely not in his league. It would be nice to see a new Struzan poster, even for a crap director like Abrams, but this ain’t it.

  4. Elle’s hand seems an odd inclusion. It has no purpose save maybe to separate her and the characters below her. Maybe that was the idea though, I dunno.

    I like the poster well enough. It makes me more interested in the movie.

    • I don’t think that’s her hand. I’ve not seen the movie yet, but in the previews before the train crash, the main boy asks her to close her eyes and he uses a white gauze or pad to wipe near her eyes, I think it’s his hand, like a direct frame lift from the movie.
