The top secret J.J. Abrams trailer to premiere on Friday with “Iron Man 2” will show “a bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera in the 70’s/80’s” reports Vulture.
The blog adds “When they develop the film, they notice that there’s an alien creature in the frame.” So how in the hell does that relate to 2008’s “Cloverfield”? Sources tell the site that “Super 8” is “absolutely connected” and is “possibly a prequel, but not a sequel”.
Still presently no word as yet when the trailer will find itself online, though one suspects bootlegs will show up by Friday should the studio not put a decent version online first.
Update: Abrams himself told the NY mag that the trailer “has nothing whatsoever to do with Cloverfield” as for what it actually is, Abrams “won’t be able to tell you until it’s done.”
