I believe this is footage from the movie Stealth.
In the third picture you can see someone who looks like Jessica Biel in the cockpit.
To answer your question, it is likely an (unfunctional) cosmetic modification of an existing aircraft.

The UCAV EDI (Extreme Deep Invader) is a joint program in relation to the F/A-37 Talon. EDI (call sign 'Tinman') is smaller than the Talon and has a downward-canted delta platform. Despite its designation as an Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV), it retains a cockpit for maintenance and emergencies. Among the new features are V/STOL capability, a Cermet (metal ceramic) composite exoskeleton, and aeroelastic wings. The engine is described as a Pulse Detonation Engine with twin Hybrid Scramjet Turbos fueled by catalyzed A1 methane. Being unmanned, EDI has shown to disregard G-forces and perform a complete sharp angle, high speed turn.
EDI's computer is more powerful than a standard Talon's at 10 tera-bits/second. It also has an Artificial Intelligence system with Quantum processing achieved by a neural net.EDI's artificial intelligence goes even further by allowing it to speak freely without being influenced by a human controller. EDI is capable of identifying a target 5 miles (8.0 km) away or by using a satellite uplink. EDI can identify a human target by fingerprints, voice analysis, or by face recognition. The most striking feature of the A.I. was its ability to learn at an exponential rate, and its ability to develop emotional feelings.
