'Super 8' Trailer: JJ Abrams' Film Preview In Super Bowl Ad (VIDEO)

And you thought 'LOST' was mysterious...

Super producer and director JJ Abrams is headed back to the big screen with his latest epic, a highly anticipated -- and highly mysterious -- Area-51 disaster film titled 'Super 8.' The mastermind behind 'LOST' and the 'Star Trek' series reboot, he teased the new film -- seen by some as a prequel to his 2008 disaster film 'Cloverfield,' with a trailer during the Super Bowl.

The trailer, while still not explaining much, at least reveals some cast members, unlike an earlier, even more mysterious sneak peak. Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning and Amanda Michalka will star.

Abrams has vast experience in the disaster movie field, having written Michael Bay's 'Armageddon' in addition to his work on 'Cloverfield.' He's also the man behind 'Mission: Impossible III,' 'Felicity,' 'Alias,' 'Fringe,' and the upcoming TV show 'Alcatraz.'
