Paramount officially admitted the existence of "Super 8," a top secret J.J. Abrams-directed, Steven Spielberg-produced sci-fi project, that conspiracy theorists on the Web have been gushing about for the last few days Variety reported.
The first teaser trailer leaked on the Internet a few days ago is now being shown to the general public before "Iron Man 2," in theaters Friday.
Abrams' plot is a mystery, although Variety quotes insiders as saying it's very influenced by the "Lost" co-creator's love of Spielberg's '70s sci-fi movies. Early speculation among bloggers was that the movie was a sequel to 2008's "Cloverfield,” but Abrams has shot down those rumors, according to Deadline.com.
The trailer hints at an alien presence, with the ominous an intro: "In 1979, the U.S. Air Force closed a section of Area 51. All the materials were to be a transported to a secure facility in Ohio."
Then there's a cut to a massive, breath-taking collision between a train and a pickup truck - and a close-up of an overturned Air Force container car with something patently not human smashing its way free.
Fans are clamoring to get into movie theaters.
