Heard about the latest J.J. Abrams film? Probably not until today's reveal that the trailer for the film -- which hasn't even been shot yet -- will hit theaters this weekend, in front of 'Iron Man 2.'

What is it? No one knows exactly -- except that it's called 'Super 8' and is rumored to be the sequel to 'Cloverfield,' HitFix's Motion Captured column reports.

Somehow the super-secretive mastermind behind 'Lost' and 'Fringe' has managed to keep a lid on his latest project. It's the same stealthy strategy he used to sneak the first teaser for 'Cloverfield,' which was first unveiled to 'Transformers' audiences.

What else do we know about this top-secret new film? No one who's seen it yet is talking, but the mystery factor is a surefire way to have everyone talking about it Monday morning. (Or, say, the Tuesday before it hits theaters.)

Rumor has it that Abrams will not be directing 'Super 8' himself. There are rumors of an Abrams-Steven Spielberg collaboration, but it's doubtful that this is that project, especially as Spielberg has just announced he'll next be taking on the World War I epic 'War Horse.'

So how do you keep your high-profile project under wraps? Word is that the crew who made the mystery trailer thought they were working on "the remake of a teen sex comedy."
