VIDEO: J.J. Abrams Releases Mysterious New Teaser Trailer - STRANGER

Abrams' Bad Robot has released an intriguing new teaser vid for an upcoming project (no, it doesn't appear to be anything Star Wars related!), but is it a movie, a tv show, or something else entirely? Take a look and sound off in the usual place..

This is a new level of secrecy..even for Abrams! He's released the vid to Entertainment Weekly without giving them a single piece of further information on it. Personally between the music, the beach setting and even some of the voicover I'm getting a bit of a Lost vibe from it, but I'm sure it has nothing to do with that show. What do you guys make of it?

I'm guessing Tv show. But I'm down Fringe was insanely good.

Hmmmm. I think that the voice over was quite compelling if I must say so myself. It's like the voice you always dreamed of hearing as you got read a good bed time story as a kid! lol

J.J. and his obsession with mystery bunks that go nowhere. I used to respect and be a fan of this guy, then he made Star Trek Into the Toilet and is about to rape Star Wars. Overrated hack. Let's spread the word to Kathleen Kennedy so Star Wars can be salvaged. http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/themcdougalbugle/news/?a=84868 This guy makes great points.

this is one of abrams new tv shows coming out, he has this and a spy drama out soon
Dev7 - 8/19/2013, 10:03 AM
Yea it kinda looks like the lost tv show.
MrCBM56 - 8/19/2013, 10:04 AM
HMMMMM.

He had me right up until the guy with his lips sewn shut appeared, then I got bored. Blew it with that. Anyone who's ever had a hostage or two knows you can't just sew their lips shut. People just won't shut up with the complaining, they have to bitch. They just won't. Trust me. You have to cut them then sew them so that the lips heal and seal together. That keeps them quiet. Jeez. Amateurs.

Wow. It looked so promising until Origins-version Deadpool showed up at the end.
Ocelot - 8/19/2013, 10:21 AM
No doubt the reveal will be an utter letdown, just like how the reveals for Cloverfield, Super 8 and STID were.

This was pretty good unitl the guy with the sewn lips appeard. That was quite random and lame really. Loved Lost, but it really started to become ridiculous after 2nd season. I never cared for Fringe becuse it was procedural. But I doubt this is another tv show. Isn't he doing another series with Cuaron? Some kinda guy gets out of jail to help protect a girl who has supernatural powers.

It got me hook, line, and sinker!
RorMachine - 8/19/2013, 10:31 AM
I think it was great even with sown lips dude..why does that diminish the overall effect? Consider me intrigued.

Person Of Interest is the Best show Abrams has done.
Nubase - 8/19/2013, 10:51 AM
@Bread

Person of interest is jonathan nolans creation, abrams is just one of the exec producers.

Fringe, lost, and alias are abrams creations.
Bread - 8/19/2013, 10:57 AM
@Nubase

I realize that, I meant the best show that Bad Robot is affiliated with.
dudebro - 8/19/2013, 11:31 AM
Twilight Zone, which Bad Robot picked up the script for.
agentawsume - 8/19/2013, 11:34 AM
Color me interested. Except don't use pink. I hate pink
Momotaros - 8/19/2013, 11:35 AM
Looks like the Crow to me. Although it's quiet funny that it has Star Wars stuff in the trailer. Like the opening tune and the Yoda like ending. Almost like JJ is having fun with those that will think Star Wars first.

@themcdougalbugle GO AWAY!

JJ Abrams picked up Rod Sterling's the Stop along the Way and for a tv mini-series and there is a very good chance this is the trailer for it.

Solomon Grundy
superbatspiderman - 8/19/2013, 12:02 PM
Seems mysterious. I love teasers like this that make you think. Who was the narrator? I t sounded kind of like Donald Sutherland.
TheBeard - 8/19/2013, 12:05 PM
is fox making a barakapool movie
Johnem95 - 8/19/2013, 12:43 PM
Kinda reminds me of The Crow, but I have no idea if that's what this is or not.
Killersloth - 8/19/2013, 1:12 PM
@fearitself18 Fringe might have started procedural but the mythology quickly took over and it became one of the best tv shows, you should give it another watch.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 8/19/2013, 1:15 PM
Howard Stern?
imnotwearinghockeypants - 8/19/2013, 2:11 PM
Hmmmmkay. I'm guessing another Lost type show.
SmellofDuty - 8/19/2013, 2:36 PM
I thought it was a good teaser. I'll of course wait to see more but as of right now I'm interested.
Jimmyquickfingers - 8/19/2013, 2:55 PM
"What begins at the water, ends at the water" sounds like an important clue. And "he arrived knowing nothing" ( looking at the night sky.). Could be throwing us off but it does have I used to be a badass but I don't remember who the [frick] I am feeling to it.
Asterisk - 8/19/2013, 3:22 PM
...still think it is Star Wars related in some way.
abw2 - 8/19/2013, 4:39 PM

Okay, well, that was uhm, rather odd... *unsure*

eyesore - 8/19/2013, 4:52 PM
Maybe it's Jon From Cincinnati. He has returned to confuse, baffle and intrigue us with his mysterious ways, then he will again leave us wondering what the [frick] just happened and wanting more of whatever that just was.
Dandy - 8/19/2013, 5:34 PM
It's most likely a viral video for up and coming series tentatively titled "Believe".

That's the only show Bad Robot is working on right now unless there is some secret movie in circulation.
Silentman - 8/19/2013, 7:09 PM
I say it's for that multimedia book that Abrams is helping develop called "S". Would make sense.
TheSoulEater - 8/19/2013, 7:12 PM
This I am curious in
TankD - 8/20/2013, 3:14 AM
@silentman I agree
DeadGuyWalking - 8/20/2013, 6:28 AM
Im I the only one that thinks the face at the end looks a lot like "The Deadpool" from X-Men Origins: Wolverine?
