Looks Like the Lid's Been Blown off this Super Secret J.J. Abrams Trailer for SUPER 8

As you may have heard, there's been lot of talk on the internet surrounding a Super Secret J.J. Abrams film project called Super 8, and a super secret trailer for that will be attached to the new Iron Man 2 film. There were lots of secret codes that were supposedly even color coded. 

But, with all of this security of keeping the film secret had failed, and apparently everything secret about this wasn't secret at all, because someone's claimed to have seen the trailer and gave a description of it to our pals over at /Film, who say it comes from "a reliable source." 

So here are the not so secret non-spoiler information, this is stuff we all pretty much knew already:

It is not a Cloverfield sequel or prequel. It was written and directed by JJ Abrams, and produced by Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment (not Dreamworks). The film takes place in the late 1979.

Now if you want to know the full details of this previously super secret trailer then continue to read. If you want to spoil this trailer for yourself then read ahead. Of course reading wont be as fun as watching it in the movie theater, but I'm still not convinced that this trailer actually exists. Why? Because, why should I? There has been no official confirmation from a source that matters that says it actually exists. But maybe it does...?

Heres the description:

The trailer lasts about one minute and a half.

It begins with the Green MPAA screen, followed by the Paramount Pictures logo. No Bad Robot at the header.

A train rushes by the screen. We notice that it has lots of cargo.

Text comes on the screen: “In 1979, The U.S. Air Force Closed A Section of AREA 51.”

We see the railroad crossing light blinking and ringing as the camera pans up we see some sort of light moving in the background. What is it? A UFO?

More Text: “All The Materials Were To Be Transported To A Secure Facility In Ohio.”

No, it appears to be the headlights of a yellow 1970’s truck, which skids in a 180 degree motion, and suddenly pulls onto the tracks.

Point of view of the truck heading into the light.

Black screen and white text: “From Producer Steve Spielberg”

We see the truck explode as it hits the train.

Then… the cargo train is heading towards the car explosion - BAM. It is wrecked, thrown from the tracks like a wild snake. The flaming metal body flipping towards the camera. Cars flying through the air. It is INTENSE.

Another black screen and the text: “And Director JJ Abrams”

The camera really slowly moves in on the wrecked pieces of the train, most of which is now just scrap metal. At least one car remains intact.

Black screen, white test: “Next Summer”

We see some sparks.

Black screen, white text: “It Arrives”

We pull up on one of the train cars with a US Airforce logo. The wheel on the door begins to spin out of control as we pull in closer. The wall of the door begins to bend like some huge force is punching it from the inside.

Cut to one second of a close up of an 8mm camera lens.

Cut to black. White text: “Super 8″

The credits at the end were pretty bare.

And the bottom featured the Amblin Entertainment, Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures Logo.

It definitely feels like a late 1970’s Spielberg film, think Close Encounters of a Third Kind. I’m excited to see what the actual movie is about.

So there ya have it! I'd like to think this was real, but anyone with an imagination and a computer could have typed up this description having not seen anything. I guess we'll find out for sure this weekend we we all go out and see Iron Man 2.

What do you all think? Is this real? Will we see this trailer with Iron Man 2? Or could it be some elaborate internet hoax?
