Auteurism is not dead.

Just look at the above trailer for Super 8. One glance at it and you can immediately tell it's a Spielberg film (he produced it). Now, I love Spielberg for nostalgia's sake but the fact that J.J Abrams directed it turns my nostalgia into pure excitement. The fact I can tell it's a Spielberg film without having to see his name (especially when he didn't direct it) proves Autuerism still exists in Hollywood. Stay tuned.
