Personally, I am really surprised by the teaser for Captain America, and blown away by the spot for Super 8. While I’m anticipating all of these, I am really interested in seeing how these two turn out more than any of the others.

Super 8, in particular, seems intriguing simply because it really feels like a return to the days where a lot of films came out with child actors as the main stars of the show (E.T., The Goonies, The Sandlot, Stand By Me, etc.). It looks like this will really be J.J. Abrams’ love letter to the “kid adventure” genre – especially since Spielberg is on board as producer. I can’t wait!

    Actually, The Captain America trailer is pretty good now. (I watch it more over and over). So sorry about the previous comment.

    I was anticaptaing (misspelled here) the Capatin American TV spot and I found it somewhat down. After all, it just a teaser so I hope there’s a better trailer coming soon. Transformers looks AWESOME!
