Detailed description of J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8” teaser trailer


By Sean O’Connell

HollywoodNews.com: So it turns out J.J. Abrams’ secretive “Super 8” project ISN’T associated with the monster movie “Cloverfield” after all. Instead, it has something to do with Area 51, the legendary, top-secret military base that, rumor has it, housed alien ships, weaponry and possibly corpses over the years.

Sounds cool, right?

Ironically, there’s another Area 51 project in the making from “Paranormal Activity” writer-director Oren Peli. And while it’s not uncommon for Hollywood to produce competitive films on similar subjects (think “Armageddon” versus “Deep Impact,” or “Volcano” versus “Dante’s Peak”), this news about Abrams’ film suddenly sets up what appears to be a race to the finish line.

We reported earlier this week that a teaser trailer for Abrams’ “Super 8” will be attached to prints of “Iron Man 2” this Friday, May 7. If you can’t wait to find out more about it, though, the reliable Slash Film acquired a detailed description of the trailer from a source. Click the above link if you want to be spoiled.

For those who’d like to remain pure, just know the film is set in 1979, it’s directed by Abrams, and it will be produced by Steven Spielberg.

That, alone, should get you to buy a ticket opening weekend.
