6 new minutes of Super 8 prove the monster ain't the real star

We're calling it here: Super 8 looks like it's going to be one of the best movies—if not the best movie—of the year. And we can say this after seeing only six minutes of footage.

What we get is an interesting ensemble cast who do more than play second fiddle to the hero. The dialogue is good, but the silences are even better. We also get to see what a powerhouse of an actress Elle Fanning has become.

Despite the awesomeness of this scene, we have to wonder: How old is our protagonist, Joe Lamb, who's played by 14-year-old Joel Courtney? He looks way too young to have his driver's license.

What do you think?
