Neville Page Talks Super 8

If the name Neville Page sounds familiar to you that's because he was the man behind the design of the Cloverfield creature as well as the designer on Piranha 3-D, Avatar, Star Trek and Tron: Legacy (among others I'm sure). It looks as if he'll be designing the creature in Super 8. Wired recently sat down with him to discuss all things design, so what are you waiting for, give the video a watch.

Last night at the 2010 Time 100 Gala at the Time Warner Center, J.J. Abrams confirmed the existence of a super secret trailer attached to prints of Iron Man 2, but he also confirmed that it has nothing to do with Cloverfield. Of course he could be lying, but at this point it's all we have to go on. Here's what he had to say according to Vulture:

"You have to check [out the trailer]," he told us. "But it has nothing whatsoever to do with Cloverfield, despite your expert reporting." So what does it have to do with? "I won’t be able to tell you until it’s done," he said.

So I guess we'll just have to wait and see at midnight tonight when the trailer premieres. Although, it's probably not going to tell us much up front, but at least we'll get some idea of what's going on here. And whether this is a Cloverfield movie or not, it will definitely have some cool viral marketing behind it, so you can be sure to find all the updated news here, so bookmark this page.

Vulture has apparently gotten their ears on some interesting information regarding this super secret J.J. Abrams project that everyone's talking about today. If you haven't read the post below, apparently there is a teaser trailer attached to Iron Man 2, which comes out this Friday, for a secret movie being produced by J.J. Abrams. Rumors around the net are that it's a prequel to 2008's Cloverfield, but obviously nothing is 100% confirmed, although new sources have emerged in the past hour.

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).

Bloody-disgusting also goes as far as to say that this sounds exactly like the Abrams/Spielberg collaboration that was announced last month and if that is the case it's possible that Abrams will be directing as well, although other places are saying that he may just be directing the trailer and not the actual film, so who knows.

Again all these details are just rumors, the teaser hasn't even been seen by the public yet so take this all with a grain of salt, but keep your eyes here for more information.

This could be what all of us "Cloverfield" fans have been waiting for. Rumor on the street is that J.J. Abrams is producing a super secret project that could be a follow up to the highly secretive, highly viral, "Cloverfield" from a few years ago. "Super 8" as the film is supposedly called, is supposed to have a teaser trailer attached to Iron Man 2 this weekend and just like the initial "Cloverfield" teaser that was shown before Transformers, this is sure to have everyone talking... so why not talk about it here, I know we will be. Head on over to HitFix to read a bit more., but make sure to bookmark this page as we'll have continuous updates as this all unravels.

Maybe the title holds some clues... If it is related to Cloverfield, maybe it's a sequel that shows more of the monsters origins or something like that, that happened in the past when Super 8 was more common/popular... and then again maybe this has absolutely nothing to do with Cloverfield...

If you're unfamiliar with us, we are the same people that brought you a few years back when there was a viral explosion surrounding that flick. And we're bringing all the knowledge we got from that project over to this one and hopefully we can deliver a much better place to get all your "Super 8" news.
