Leave it to “Lost” creator J.J. Abrams to stir up buzz about a potential Cloverfield movie with another trailer that provides more questions than answers.
Our friends at Vulture report that a teaser for a movie tentatively titled “Super 8″ will debut to U.S. audiences before Iron Man 2 this weekend. Word has it, it’s a Cloverfield prequel.
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.
