THE OFFICIAL "Cloverfield" thread

Abrams has done it again (old tricks) with the trailer for "Cloverfield" film. I have no idea what it is about but I want to see it. What do you guys think about it if you've seen the trailer.

the trailer is up in high def on apple.com/trailers

and 1-18-08.com is the only official website for the movie that's been FOUND. Apparently J.J. has some more buried on teh interwebz.

No, the Ethan Haas stuff is not related to the movie.

I have high hopes for this one. Been a while since there has been a great monster flick.

AS long as it stays away from the stupid cliches (the head of the statue of liberty is borderline) I think it'll do well.

Casting a bunch of "unknowns" will help add some realism. Wouldn't be the same if Tom Cruise were in it)

People need to chill out on this hoax trailer, yes there is a project in production now, but chances are everything that was shown in that teaser was made specifically for that purpose since it didn't even start shooting until last week.

By the way BEAL, if you want a great monster movie check out The Host.

I just got back from seeing Transformers.

This trailer was AMAZING. J.J. I love you.

January can't come soon enough now.

Sin City 2 and Sweeney Todd might both come out in January, too.

Am I the only person who wasn't impressed with the teaser?? I laughed when I saw the trailer (in theatres, so the big screen effect wasn't lost), and this was before I was aware that it had become such an ~*internet sensation*~. Fanboys everywhere popping insta-boners over the teaser and formulating theories about the secret websites/plot of the movie is amusing, though.

Yes, I believe so.


Anyway, back to the Cloverfield

The trailer felt like what I always thought a real War of the Worlds film would be like.

My buddy and I really hope the monster is Lovecraft's Cthulu. I don't know where that rumor came from, but I likey it.

We've been reading up on it online and it's completely badass.

Fair compromise.

I'm still curious as to what the "hidden" sites are. The official 1-18-08.com site just has 3 pictures, but I'm not sure what the significance of them are just yet. Anyone know?
