J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Teases A New Mystery Project

Soon he will know. The rest of us will have to wait awhile.

Here we go again. There's a new project coming from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot, which was announced today with this teaser. It's mysterious and elusive and features a guy with his mouth sewn shut. The clip is simply titled "Stranger." Maybe that's the name of the film, too. Then again, maybe it's not a film at all.

It seems a lot of people are fed up with this sort of thing. My reaction to Abrams' Mystery Box shenanigans has moved from impatience to full-on indifference. It's human nature to seek solutions to unanswered questions, but when the question is based on a drunk hobo tripping over waves, I'm not even sure what the question is.

Untitled Bad Robot Thing will be released whenever it's released. And it will be whatever the hell it is. In the meantime, enjoy the moving piano music.
