JJ Abrams is the master at keeping a tight lip on his projects (he calls it “the mystery box”), which I love because it leads to a heavy amount of anticipation for each film. What he did with Cloverfield was had us all literally freaking out online, and then took it to an entirely new level with Super 8. He’s up to his old tricks with a new top secret project just teased on his Bad Robot Productions YouTube page.
What is Stranger? Well, nobody knows exactly, but there is one clue – at the end of the teaser there’s a visual of a man with his lips sewn shut. It also opens with a shot of the stars and some dialogue that makes me believe it’s alien related. I guess we’ll just have to be patient and wait for more clues from the “mystery box” to be released.
