Details on the next super secret JJ Abrams trailer!

05.04.2010

UPDATE - If you want to be spoiled, Vulture has a description of the trailer and details on what movie it's for....

Remember when you first saw the mysterious trailer for CLOVERFIELD, then known only as 1-18-08, before prints of TRANSFORMERS three years ago? As good as you might've thought TRANSFORMERS was (and I'll admit to liking it quite a bit), a good portion of the buzz was about a trailer for a movie that no one knew anything about. Well get ready to relive that fun.

HitFix is reporting that another mysterious Abrams trailer, code-named SUPER-8, is set to run before IRON MAN 2 this Friday. What exactly is SUPER-8? This may completely shock you but nobody knows. There are rumors it's a trailer for the CLOVERFIELD sequel but it seems odd (even for Abrams) to shoot a trailer for a movie that hasn't even begun production yet. HitFix claims it's not the rumored Abrams and Spielberg collaboration and this isn't a project Abrams directed.

The title SUPER-8 obviously gives us some hints as the Super-8 format, released by Kodak in the 60s, was once the standard for home movie film. Abrams shot his first movie, a horror movie titled THE ATTIC he filmed with childhood friend Greg Grunberg, when he was 11. Is it an homage to his homemade movies?

The cans IRON MAN 2 and subsequently the SUPER-8 trailer are reportedly timelocked by Paramount until Thursday, so we probably won't get more details until projections open the reels and run it for the first time. Stay tuned!

The trailer does sound interesting, but did the Vulture article really have to add "might be connect to Cloverfield as a prequel. We don't know".

Really? Give me a break, and stop trying to start up a fake "mystery". LMAO.

I like Abrams style and his marketing. Cloverfield was an alright movie but the marketing for it was done nicely. JJ is a man of mystery and it was a mysterious trailer because all we knew was that it was a monster movie. No name, no idea what kind of a monster, just a release date.

By the way I just want to wish everyone a happy Star Wars day and May the 4th be with you, always.

Um, why is the Cloverfield trailer mysterious?

It was a straight up teaser to a giant monster movie. Where was the mystery?

Is it because it didn't show the monster, like most teaser trailers do (like pretty much all of Godzilla's marketing did), it just teased?

Oh, I know why it was "mysterious", and that's because of Lost. If Abrams sneezes fans will scream "mysterious!"

AWESOME!

As far as cinema experiences go, i would definitely rate Cloverfield in my top 5 (if not #1). I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through and would never do it the injustice of a home viewing. Can't say there are many movie's that have done that for me. This is great news!

Abrams is a genius at marketing. He pretty much gets fanboys to do all of the advertising for him. He keeps his marketing a mystery, knowing that tard fanboys will believe that they are the only ones who can solve it. And they will spend hours upon hours trying to solve it, and then will present their inane theories to all the internet communities. This effectively creates a kind of cult for the film.

Then the movie will come out, and it will reveal that there never was any real mystery to

Then the movie will come out, and it will reveal that there never was any real mystery to the trailer, and the movie itself will suck so much ass. Much like Cloverfield.

JJ knows how to get people to see his stuff, he really is a genius, or at least has a team of media geniuses advising him. The internet will be foaming at the mouth by friday afternoon

I love that trailers have become such a big part of the film world. JJ is like a trailer pioneer almost. Love this shit, it keeps me busy.

Genius

JJ Abrams is. Tactic: Don't let anyone know, and let them be aware they don't know. Everyone will be drooling over it from then on!

I loved the insanity of the Cloverfield trailer. While I'd love to see a Cloverfield 2 teaser on the way, I'm hoping that this will be something new and even more exciting! Can't wait!

CLOVERFIELD 2

Let us pray this is a C2 viral trailer. Cloverfield is a great movie. I'd take bets it is. No offense, but JoBlo may not know that C2 has already been filmed not alone in production. JJ's got a lot of cash and some things slip by people, even movie productions. I cannot wait for C2.

The Cloverfield bit was awesome!

I'll never forget being in the theatre for the midnight screening of "Transformers" and after the teaser played, almost every guy in the theatre including myself yelled out "What the fuck was that?!". It was too awesome!

Yes! More viral goodness. That trailer for Cloverfield that started the insanity was such a treat for me. I was aching to know what mysteries were behind it, and I look forward to seeing what he serves up here for us.
