Secret URL Discovered in Super 8 Trailer

Remember that awesome trailer for J.J. Abrams' upcoming secretive project Super 8? The movie has been so under wraps that we don't even really know what it is about yet. Well, the investigative team at ReelzChannel found a clue hidden within the trailer for the summer flick.
A url is hidden in the camera lens in the trailer, s8editingroom.com, a website apart from the official website for the movie — www.super8-movie.com.
The website reveals some seemingly "lost" footage of scientists talking about an (alien?) experiment.
For fans of Abrams, the secrecy around the movie can be frustrating but in an era where leaked pics, scripts, and video hit the net long before a movie's release, it is kind of refreshing to be completely in the dark about one of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer.
What we do know about the movie is that it takes place in the summer of 1979 in a small Ohio town where a group of kids witness a train crash. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town. Abrams has called Super 8 his homage to the Steven Spielberg, who is a producer, movies of the 1970s.
We still have a long way to go until the movie's June 10 opening. We can only wait and see what other breadcrumbs Abrams leaves for us.
