Apple has debuted the much talked about teaser trailer for the secret J.J. Abrams directed and Steven Spielberg produced Super 8 of which Paramount has still not provided an official synopsis, but here’s what I put together after watching the trailer last week:

Written and directed by JJ Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment, Super 8 is set in 1979, and the U.S. Air Force has closed a section of Area 51 and ordered all materials be transported to a secure facility in Ohio when an accident causes the train transporting the materials to crash and an unidentified creature escaped.

Check out the trailer directly below and click here to watch it in high definition.

Also, take notice of a final frame screen grab caught by The Playlist, which would seem to be of a young child. I included the capture at the lede of this article and you are only likely to catch it if you watch the HD version frame-by-frame. As Diandre Cole would say… What up wit dat?

Super 8 is expected Summer 2011, but an official release date has not yet been announced.
