Between Star Wars: Episode VII, the Star Trek movie franchise and even the video game that he’s working on with Valve, as well as his possible involvement in the production of Portal and Half-Life movies, it’s very easy to become confused when it comes to JJ Abrams news. That’s why Abrams didn’t help anything last month when he also released a mysterious trailer simply entitled, “Stranger.”
And while I was under the impression that it was for a movie about a guy who sits on his right hand, Abrams cleared everything up with a new trailer on Monday that explains that this is all about the book “S.” which Abrams helped developed and was written by Doug Dorst. Aw, a book? But that means reading. :(
The still incredibly vague plot of “S.” via Variety:
… the story revolves around a grad student and college senior who trade notes in the margins of 1949 novel by fictional reclusive author V.M. Straka. S. The second trailer is just as vague and mysterious as the first, involving an older man’s narration that everything written was true before ending with the Plato quote, “death is not the worst that can happen to men.”
Whatever, I’ll wait for the movie version that I assume will star Benedict Cumberbatch.
