‘Super 8’ Blu-ray and DVD Debut November 22nd

Called "this year's most thrilling movie" (Richard Corliss, Time), writer/director J.J. Abrams' (Star Trek) breathtaking adventure Super 8 debuts in a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack with Digital Copy November 22, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Produced by Amblin, Bad Robot and Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, the exhilarating story follows a group of friends in a small Ohio town who witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie. When they realize that it was no accident, they set out to find the truth-something more shocking than any of them could have imagined. Combining action, humor and heart, the film features outstanding performances from a fresh young cast including Elle Fanning (Somewhere), Gabriel Basso (The Big C), Zach Mills (Kit Kittredge: An American Girl) and newcomers Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths and Ryan Lee, along with veteran actors Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) and Ron Eldard (Blind Justice).
