iom_moviesAs I’m sure we’ll all find out tonight at midnight (those of us attending a midnight Iron Man showing anyway), it appears as if, on the eve of Iron Man 2’s release, we may have news of a secret teaser?

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).

Interesting … as Ain’t it Cool News notes in the same article, it would be interesting for Paramount to advertise TWO alien “found footage” films simultaneously, with this and Orin Peli’s Area 51.  However, given the secrecy behind this project, do we even know it’s Abrams’ related?  Maybe it actually is an Area 51 trailer?

I remember when the Cloverfield trailer premiered, the entire internet was buzzing with theories and excitement about the movie, and what its title would eventually be.  I really dug Cloverfield – definitely curious as to what this trailer could mean, and looking forward to some answers!
