Ready for the next wholly original J.J. Abrams movie? The first new trailer for his mystery movie, Super 8, is rumored to be debuting before Iron Man 2 this week. And the premise may have been leaked. Spoilers ahead...


Vulture is reporting, based on inside sources, that the trailer consists of a group of kids filming with an old Super 8 camera, hence the name...

When they develop the film, they notice that there's an alien creature in the frame. Our sources also say that Super 8 is absolutely connected to 2008's Cloverfield (possibly a prequel, but not a sequel).

Hmmm I feel like a Cloverfield tie-in might be pushing it a little, but it does combine the hand-held shaky cam from the original and aliens/monsters. But this premise, if true, does remind us of his other mysterious film that's being labeled a "Spielberg tribute film." Could they be one and the same?



I officially declare JJ the most overrated artist of the 21st Century.
