    Anyone seen the trailer for this '1-18-08' yet? It's attached to reels of Transformers which is in theaters right now. The untitled film project is code-named the 'Cloverfield Project' and created by JJ Abrams, the guy who produces Lost. Could be kind of cool, I've really enjoyed Lost (at least until the latter half of the latest season). Hopefully it retains its focus, unlike Lost.

    It's an interesting idea, but it has a lot to live up to, being hyped the way it is.

    I saw the trailer about a week ago and thought it looked interesting. I'm not a fan of "Lost", mostly because I missed the first season and a half and it left me, well... lost...

    Yeah, I saw the trailer before Transformers too. Looks cool.

    I wonder what it's about, though. Some speculate that it's a spin-off of Lost. But does Lost have monsters? I never watched the show, so I have no clue.

    I'm definitely interested in it. The viral marketing has brought me in. I've even gone to ethanhaaswasright.com to solve the puzzles. I googled for the answer on some of them though.

    I think it's Godzilla, but no one buys it. It's soooo Godzilla!

    I spent 50% of my day trying to figure out the plot. They're filming on the Lower East Side tomorrow. I don't know what time, but I'm planning on going down there.

    Yea that looked like a really cool trailer. Reminded me a lot of War Of The Worlds. I like the way they shot the trailer like it was a done on a handcam. It was intense. I'm looking forward to it. I like armegeddon/apocalyptic movies.

    Cool trailer but i could see it being a big letdown. I'll hold judgment until more info comes out...

    It looked cool until I saw the Statue of Liberty head fall into the street. Ugh.

    Still interested to see what the final product is all about.

    THANK YOU!

    I saw the trailer before Transformers, and couldn't figure out why they had a trailer that didn't show the name of the movie!

    Is that some kind of animal claw that scraped through the Statue of Liberty?

    I never watched Lost either, but apparently it had Polar bears.

    Polar bears on a tropical island...

    Looks interesting. I like the filming style, although all the voiceovers were a little corny, like "Oh my God!" and "What kind of animal makes that sound?!" and how Rob and his friends seem to stick around and peer down the street just for the sake of the camera having a reason to stay, while everyone else runs for their lives. IMO it would've been better if they had been running as well but the camera man looks back once in a while. :)

    Still looks good though.

    [Edit] I haven't seen all of Lost but isn't the monster some sort of weird black cloud thing that's not very big and probably wouldn't be able to rip off Lady Liberty's head?

    It looks like Godzilla, but due to international copyright laws... its not.

    I think the filiming style is just a teaser and that's not how the movie actually is. But yea, Lost's Smokey is not the monster that rips off lady liberty's head. I think this is a like an alien vs. gods type of movie.

    And on a sidenote, your avatar gave me a momentary shock, as I thought there was a fly inside my monitor. Touche, touche...

    I'm seeing Transformers tonight so I'll deifnitely watch for this - sounds intriguing. I enjoy it when they do things like this to keep you guessing. :)

    Mind you, I hope it lives up to whatever potential its built up already. I remember seeing a similar teaser trailer for Titan AE in the theaters (I think it was before Independence Day? Or was it The Matrix? :confused: ). It looked really cool and promising at the time, little did we know.... :eek: ;)

    Looks interesting, though I have no idea what the movie is about based on the trailer other than a party with some guy named rob moving to Japan and flying balls of fire.

    I'm with you - I really enjoy movies that destroy New York (Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow, Deep Impact, etc.) but nine times out of ten they're terrible. Plus, this is being released in January, which for Hollywood is like the Bermuda Triangle or the massive dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico - if they thought it could compete during blockbuster season, it would be out in November/December or May/June.

    Its a monster movie but I'm not going to say if its zilla(don't think paramount owns the right to zilla) or not. I heard some interesting theories about the monster but it will come out soon enough.

    Interesting indeed....there is also interesting trailer about another movie.
