New Trailer for JJ Abrams and Bad Robot’s Stranger

The new mystery box teaser promises a story about a man...a story which is a mystery.

All that is really known about the newest project from the JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot production company is the title: Stranger. Why do I get the feeling that they want to keep it that way? In the mysterious new teaser for the upcoming flick, a black and white sequence of close-ups promises that “Soon” he (and thus we) shall know the truth. Soon, there will be an explanation as to why he is in the water. And soon, we might know why there is some creepy guy in the corner with his lips sewed shut. See for yourself. 
 Personally, I am getting a bit weary of this mystery box marketing campaigns. What seemed fresh and daring in the build-up for Cloverfield and intriguing, if it a bit annoying, in the lead-in to Super-8, feels downright hammy now. And the less said about “Who is Benedict Cumberbatch Playing,” the better. Still, the visuals and atmosphere hopefully promise something worth seeing in this stylishly impressive tease. Abrams is currently in heavy pre-production for his upcoming 2015 Star Wars: Episode VII film at Disney. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for all news updates related to the world of geek.
