While most of the civilized world will be heading to the theaters to see Favreau and Downey, Jr. knock out another killer super hero flick with Iron Man 2, there is a good portion of the fan community that can’t wait to get the first glimpse at J.J. Abrams’ newest secret project, tentatively titled Super 8.
The first we even heard about the trailer was earlier this week, as Abrams announced that it will be attached to the front of Iron Man 2 prints, and that he expects more people to be talking about the trailer than the film itself after the walk out of the theater.
He rumored that it could be a prequel to 2008’s Cloverfield, which he produced, but after viewing this trailer, we now know that this film is the project that he and Steven Spielberg have been collaborating on.
We won’t spoil any of the content in the trailer for you, in case you’re waiting it out for the theater. Otherwise, check out the handicam version of the trailer after the jump, and we’ll be sure to keep you informed on Abrams and the upcoming Super 8.
