Now this looks like one interesting movie. Cloverfield (might just be a codename since the trailer simply ends with “Produced by J.J. Abrams”) is a movie, in which NYC is attacked by monsters… or something like that. It’s recorded using a handheld camera and we follow the attack in an almost documentary like manner. It reminds me a lot of the hit show Lost with the whole “It’s a giant lion!” thing somebody yells when the attack begins and everybody is running. Furthermore it also reminded me a whole lot of The Host, a Korean movie I’ve previously blogged about where the city of Seoul is also suddenly attacked by huge monsters… during bright daylight.
Here’s the IMDb for the project.
There’s also a website up (although not that much to look at yet) simply called 1-18-08.com, which as you’ve probably already guessed, refers to the January 18th, 2008 premiere.
Sorry about the quality of the trailer, but the video was recorded inside a movie theater and shown just before the Transformers movie so that’s something we’ll have to live with for now. I really can’t wait to watch this baby in all it’s orgasmic Quicktime-quality glory.
