‘Cloverfield 2’ to be unveiled through ‘secret’ trailer

Audiences at 'Iron Man 2' in US to get a sneak preview

A “secret” trailer is set to unveil a follow-up to J J Abrams monster movie Cloverfield in the US.

The hush-hush project – titled Super 8 – is thought to be a prequel, reports New York Magazine.

According to the blog, the clip shows “a bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera in the 70s or 80s. When they develop the film, they notice that there’s an alien creature in the frame”.

It is not yet clear though when the film is set.

The trailer will play before Iron Man 2 in the US at 12.01am on Thursday night (May 6). According to Hitfix, the security around the trailer has been intense, with projectionists only able to open the locked canisters containing the special reels on Thursday afternoon.
