First details on J.J. Abrams’ secret Super 8 movie

J.J. Abrams has a new secret film in development — possibly connected to 2008’s Cloverfield — and its trailer will reportedly be featured in front of Iron Man 2 this weekend. Here are the details, courtesy HitFix and Vulture:

So what if I told you JJ¬†Abrams had a mystery box called “Super 8” all gift-wrapped and ready for everyone to open this week, and there hasn’t been a single word written about it online so far?

Insiders familiar with the trailer tell us that it shows a bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera in the seventies or eighties. 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).

Whether the actual Super 8 movie will be set in the seventies, eighties, or present day is anyone’s guess. And yet, just this scrap of information will have fans obsessing for months. Advantage yours, Abrams.
