'Super 8' teaser online

There are still so few details about the plot of Super 8, the J.J. Abrams-directed and Steven Spielberg-produced flick hitting theaters in 2011, but teased before Iron Man 2.

The Super 8 Web site is up, but so far just shows a blank, flitting film strip - which might coincide with New York mag's Vulture blog report the movie is about "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." However, Lost maestro Abrams says, "It has nothing whatsoever to do with Cloverfield," which shoots down Vulture's theory the film is connected to his 2008 monster production.

Personally, I like a good mystery production, and love the idea of a year of teasing and theorizing with a Slusho!-style viral marketing campaign from Abrams and Spielberg. And if anyone can make a giant monster/alien flick worth waiting a year for, it's these two.

The teaser trailer playing now before Iron Man 2 is embedded after the jump.
