Latest J.J. Abrams Project Is Interesting, for Now

The video above was uploaded to YouTube earlier today by Bad Robot Productions, J.J. Abrams’ production company. Abrams also sent the video to Entertainment Weekly. What is it a trailer for? He didn’t say! Could be a movie, could be a TV show—who knows! It is all very mysterious.

Of course, whether the project will remain interesting once people actually know what it is—or reach the end of it—is another question entirely. Still, for now, I’m genuinely curious. So mission accomplished.
