J.J. Abrams Has a Super Secret Trailer Attached to Iron Man 2
There's no denying that J.J. Abrams is one sneaky bastard and that he has a passionate love affair with mysteries and secrets. After all the mystery and excitement surrounding Cloverfield swept the internet by storm, it looks like we might be in store for another Abrams-fueled cinematic puzzle of sorts as HitFix has discovered that a brand new mystery movie will be introduced later this weekend with a secret trailer that is attached to copies of Iron Man 2. The project, given the title of Super 8 thanks to the trailer, will only be produced by Abrams (like Cloverfield), but apparently Abrams himself directed the attached secret trailer.
Though the surprise of an unknown and mysterious trailer is no longer secret, HitFix was kind enough not to spoil the trailer for us (mainly because they haven't seen it and don't know what it looks like), however Vulture seems to have more details (if you want to spoil it). We'll definitely have a recap after the midnight shows of Iron Man 2 on Thursday. HitFix (and Vulture) have heard that the trailer is rumored to be for the intermittently talked about Cloverfield sequel, which if true would ruin some of the mystery, but coming from Abrams and his Bad Robot banner, this rumor is to be expected. Maybe it has something to do with another secret Abrams project known as 500 Rads? No one knows, and J.J. Abrams absolutely loves that.
Abrams truly is the master of mystery, secrets and the like. This is a guy who directed a teaser trailer under a fake title and even tricked the crew into thinking they were working on a remake of a teen sex comedy. In this day and age of the internet and knowing everything within seconds, that's incredibly impressive, and the fact that we're just now finding out about this project now is even more impressive. So join us in getting even more excited for Iron Man 2 with the addition of this brand new J.J. Abrams fueled mystery. And stay tuned as this secret trailer will likely be the start of a viral and so much more. See you on Thursday night!
