The trailer for this project -- entitled 'Super 8' -- is attached to screenings of this weekend's 'Iron Man 2,' as if there weren't enough reasons to see that movie.

Any news about the plot and production of the film, or even details of the trailer itself, are being kept under serious secrecy. It echoes the marketing campaign for the Abrams'-produced 'Blair Witch'-meets-'Godzilla' surprise hit 'Cloverfield.'

As expected, the rabid speculation over what 'Super 8' is about has caused motivated people to bootleg the trailer and get it out on the web as soon as possible. Behold the trailer in all its bootleg glory.


An intriguing teaser that poses more questions than answers. According to EW.com, the film will be "an homage to the sci-fi films Abrams loved as a teenager." Expect 'Super 8' in theaters in the summer of 2011. (View the film's Web site here.)
