A deleted scene from Super 8 has surfaced on the interwebs, showing that aliens, zombies and movies were definitely not the only things on one little boy's mind.

Although J.J. Abrams' Super 8 is mainly about an alien being that escapes from a crashed government train and rampages through a small Ohio town, it's also about the coming of age of Joe (Joel Courtney) and his friends, and especially Joe's blossoming romance with the girl of his dreams, Alice (Elle Fanning).

In the newly available clip, Joe finds out from Charles (Riley Griffiths) that Alice is going to star in the zombie epic that Charles is directing. While Charles is consumed with thoughts of his movie, Joe is obsessed with Alice.


We have no idea whether this scene will eventually show up on a director's-cut Blu-ray or anything like that, but it adds a little bit more to the story of Joe's first real crush, which was one of our favorite plotlines in the film.
