It’s amazing the difference that a few hours can make. Just a little while ago we reported that the trailer for JJ Abrams’ latest project Super 8 will be attached to prints of Iron Man 2 this weekend. Speculation started running rampant as to whether or not this could be a sequel to Cloverfield, and now the answer has come.
According to New York Magazine’s Vulture:
****Spoilers follow. Do not read on if you don’t want to know****
“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).”
Well, there you have it, folks. One way or another it looks as if Clovie is readying itself to start stomping around again. And in case you missed it before …
To further entice (and confuse) you, footage of Abrams talking about his new “Mystery Box” has shown up online. What is it? What does it have to do with Super 8? Is this the long talked about Cloverfield sequel? Watch the video, and tell us your thoughts below. Let the discussion resume this weekend.
