The first teaser trailer has gone online for this Steven Spielberg produced, J.J. Abrams directed film.
Much like the way he handled the secrecy for his Star Trek reboot, Abrams is treating the specifics about this film very secretively, only releasing material for it as part of a viral marketing campaign not too dissimilar to the way in which the marketing for Cloverfield was handled (Abrams was producer on Cloverfield).

There’s rumours (aren’t there always?!?) that this is actually a prequel to Cloverfield, though this early in the marketing campaign I’d be a little surprised if that nugget turned out to be true.
The film itself isn’t scheduled to be released until 2011, so there’s loads of time to debate/argue about what it will or will not be.
