Is it just me, or did we never get a teaser trailer to J.J Abrams next original movie attached to Iron Man 2 when it premiered here?!
Via website i09, the next film by the guy who gave us Lost, Mission Impossible III, Star Trek, and the surprising monster hit Cloverfield will be called "Super 8", and it's name has something to do with the motion picture film format of the same name developed in the mid 1960's. It apparently has ties to 2008's Cloverfield, and will feature a group of kids using the camera as a recording tool, which they develop and discover something... strange. Since I haven't seen the trailer, this is still puzzling and mysterious for me. But knowing Abrams, he'll deliver something with a punch and full of bizarre storytelling that's definitely worth experiencing once it comes out. I'm real curious now.
UPDATE (May 6, 2010): Well, guess we can debunk the idea that it's a Cloverfield sequel or prequel. Enewsi reports that JJ Abrams has stated that Super 8 has nothing to do with his 2008 monster movie. You can read the rest of the post here.
