UPDATED: Possible Cloverfield sequel / prequel trailer attached to Iron Man 2?
Posted by LiveFor on May 5, 2010
UPDATE: Vulture spoke to Abrams himself, who said that the trailer has nothing to do with Cloverfield.
Iron Man 2 has been out for a while over here, but is released in the USA on 7th May. News is out that J J Abrams has a top secret teaser trailer attached to it for something codenamed Super 8.
Word on the street is that not even the people filming it knew what it was all about as Abrams told them it was for a new sex comedy he was working on.
If you remember the Cloverfield teaser trailer was first shown unannounced before Transformers and I personally thought all the teaser stuff about Cloverfield was actually better than the final film. Still amazing in this day and age that they can still keep a film super top secret like this.
Vulture have more on what the trailer will show so spoilers ahead.
Insiders familiar with the trailer tell us that it shows a bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera in the seventies or eighties. When they develop the film, they notice that there’s an alien creature in the frame. Our sources also say that Super 8 is absolutely connected to 2008’s Cloverfield (possibly a prequel, but not a sequel).
There you have it, if it is true. Anyone fancy a Slusho?
If you are in the States and get to see the trailer let us all know what it is like in the comments below.
