Here a leaked trailer for the JJ Abrams produced ‘Cloverfield’ monster movie. It is bad shaky cam footage of a trailer which itself is supposed to be like bad shaky cam footage.
It appears that this film will be the first Abrams/Bad Robot film released (1/18/08) under his multi-pic deal with Paramount, and Star Trek will be second (12/25/08).There is an official site tied to the release date so that appears to be set. 1-18-08.com. Nothing there but an image for now.
From the trailer it is now known that the film is directed by Matt Reeves (another long-time Abrams collaborator from his Felicity days) and is being co-produced by Bryan Burk (an exec. producer on Lost as well as the new Star Trek).
Online Game link?
There is one of those Internet games out there at the site ethanhaaswasright.com along with a blog ethanhaaswaswrong.blogspot.com. It isn’t entirely clear how this all comes together, but Abrams and Burk have done this kind of thing before with The Lost Experience last year. As we learn more we will update. If anyone works their way through the game let me know (tipline on the right).
NOTE: It is unclear if this is all part of Paramount’s viral push or if they will shut this down and have the trailer removed from the net. So don’t be surprised if this disappears soon.
Thanks for the link tip Rick Kelvington
