After a pretty grand trailer, the masterminds behind J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg's "something alien this way comes" thriller have dropped a new poster on us. Now, if you'll just cock your head 90 degrees ...

There are, I'm sure, scores of "deeper" meanings one can read into this Super 8 one-sheet. The film looks at science fiction from a different angle. Five kids and a camera can save the world from a darkening horizon. Cities, no matter how big, will lead to your doom.

Me, I'm going with: That's one glowy water tower, not to be trifled with.
