Look, I don’t know who J.J. Abrams thinks he is, but he could at least throw us a bone and give us the name of his upcoming project with Bad Robot. Not everything has to be a crazy mystery, buddy. The newly released teaser trailer, entitled only “Stranger,” offers no details about Abrams’ next venture – aside from the fact that it’s black and white, features a lot of water and a man with a sewn-up mouth, and it definitely isn’t Star Wars: Episode VII.
At this point, it’s not even clear if the project is a movie or TV show. The narrator’s voice, as well as the man featured in the trailer are both unrecognizable, which seems to be a conscious choice (Abrams!!). And no, skimming IMDb and looking at his list of upcoming projects will not help. I tried that. Watch “Stranger” (whatever it may be) after the break.
Now we wait, and speculate and raise our fists to an unforgiving god and curse the day that Abrams took a marketing class and decided he was going to be known as that “unconventional” guy. What is this project? [via Rope of Silicon]
