Must Watch: J.J. Abrams' Super 8 Official HQ Teaser Trailer!
After showing in theaters in front of Iron Man 2 this weekend, Paramount has debuted the teaser trailer for J.J. Abrams' secret alien project Super 8 online in high def on Apple. I've seen the trailer (in theaters) and it's a fantastic introduction and perfect tease, just like Cloverfield, and I'm glad it doesn't show more than it does. I'm sure that Abrams won't be showing us what this alien looks like until the movie comes out, and I'm fine with that (although I'm sure it'll be leaked). If you haven't seen this trailer, you should definitely check it out. Oddly, there seems to be extra footage at the end, but I'm not sure if it has to do with the viral or not.

Super 8 (which is supposedly a tentative title) is written and directed by visionary director J.J. Abrams, who started his career with "Lost" & "Alias" before directing Mission: Impossible III and Star Trek last summer. This is being produced by Steven Spielberg with a budget of ~$50 million and hasn't even started shooting. Abrams will film this in the next months, most likely in complete secrecy, so I'm not sure when we'll see the next trailer. According to early reports, this is inspired by Spielberg's films of the 70's and 80's. Paramount will be releasing Super 8 in theaters everywhere sometime next summer in 2011 (a date has not been set).
