Titled ‘Stranger’, the minute-long clip was uploaded to Bad Robot’s newly-created YouTube channel yesterday (August 19) without a description.

The black-and-white video shows a man staggering across a beach at night while an enigmatic voiceover intones: “He arrived knowing nothing of himself. Who is he? Soon he shall know…”

Then at the end, the backing music becomes more dramatic and the camera zooms in on a haunting image. Press ‘play’ below to watch the tantalising teaser.

Bad Robot’s TV productions over the years include Lost, Alias, Fringe and Person Of Interest. The company also receives a “co-production” credit on all of Abrams’ big screen projects including the recent Star Trek films and the forthcoming Star Wars: Episode VII.
