1st Super 8 clip shows teens about to take on a mega-monster

We've seen a lot of trailers for Super 8, J.J. Abrams' tale of teens teaming up to take on a mysterious mega-monster. Now here comes the first clip from the film, showing where things begin to go off the rails. Literally.

The thing is—though this IS the first clip, we can't really say that it's an actual scene from the movie, as it appears to be highly condensed from what we'll end up seeing in theaters. But it does give a better idea of the way the story will play out than anything released up until now.

As a reminder, here's the official plot synopsis:

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.

Super 8 hits theaters June 10.
