There is probably a lot of threads getting started on this, so I decided I would make an official 'Cloverfield' Experiment thread.

For those of you that do not know what The 'Cloverfield' Experiment is (Codename: Slusho). During the previews before Transformers, a trailer for a movie produced by J.J. Abrams was played.
http://www.dailymotion.com/relevance/search/cloverfield/video/x2inu3_cloverfield-trailer_shortfilms
There is not much information released about this project, not even the name. So for anyone who knows anything about the movie, feel free to post here, as I will be doing the same.
The plot outline revolves around a monster attack in New York as told from the point of view of a small group of people.


There are names floating around, like Colossus. But before you jump to conclusion, I'm in high doubts that it will be about the comic-book character Colossus, as cool as it would be.
There was Monstrous, but the pictures posted below will clear that up.


The release date for the movie is 1-18-08.

HUGE PICTURE!!

The people who decided to make a trailer like that are very smart...they just knew that the internet would go crazy trying to figure out what it is. Looks neat...I was kind of thinking Godzilla haha.
Moar?

Everybody was thinking Godzilla. At ComicCon, Abrams said that it's time for America to have its own monster. Probably an original, but if not, I'm still hoping for Chtulu.

There's rumours it's Voltron movie, also if you listen really really carefully at one point someone yells "It's a lion. It's huge" so that gives a reason to the rumours. God damn I'm actually excited to see movie for once in forever now


Edit: nevermind the lion thing He's saying "it's alive" not "It's a lion"

it's not anything we already know of i don't think.... abrams said america needs its own monster movie, like japan with godzilla, so i think we're going to be dealing with something original (hopefully)... he said it will be "insane and intense".... this movie hopefully won't be a let down, because it has potential to be great with the hype its getting from its first trailer and poster

They are making a Voltron film though (or so rumour has it) Summer '08

Next they need a Road Rovers movie; I would be freakin stoked. But; they'd prolly **** it up by making it CG or live action... it would have to be good ole hand animated. Anyone agree/remember Road Rovers? Probly not

But aren't they being pretty open about everything with Iron Man? Like, just calling it Iron Man, or Plastering his superbadass armor on stuff?

I have a slight feeling the movie might not stand upto the people's expectations

Like thats a lot of publicity for the movie... Releasing a really vague trailer 6months before the release of the movie.
People are gonna expect a lot from the movie when it releases. If it ends up to be just another slightly above average monster movie, people are gonna hate it!!

The movie's gotta be amazing after that much publicity for people to actually like it... and thats quite a tough job for the flim crew!

I doubt they'll be able to pull it off big... last thing we want another crappy invasion movie like tom cruise's war of the worlds....

Oh and from Wiki about Cloverfield:
Paramount Pictures secretly greenlighted the project "Cloverfield" to be produced by J. J. Abrams, directed by Matt Reeves, and written by Drew Goddard.[1] For the film, Abrams conceived of a new monster after he and his son visited a toy store in Japan that had Godzilla toys.[4] The casting process was also carried out in secret, with no script being sent out to candidates. It has been confirmed that Michael Stahl-David, Odette Yustman, Mike Vogel and Lizzy Caplan star in the movie. With production estimated to have a budget of $30 million, filming began in mid-June in New York.[1] Location filming, using hand-held video cameras, has taken place on Coney Island, with scenes being shot at Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park and the B&B Carousel.[5] One report asserts that the film will not be "a sequel or a remake" of any previous motion picture.[6]


Its apparently some new monster Abrams came up with...

That quote still leaves room open for Chtulu. There hasn't been a movie about him. But it's probably something Abrams came up with.

Ooooooh... ok.. I think Iron Man is on Marvel cant remem, but a movie about Black Sabbath's Iron Man cpuld be cool... like, just make the story of Iron Man play out, and have him kill the people he once saved.

Statue of Liberty comes alive...

And owns the city...

I don't know why, but I get a feeling that's exactly what's going to happen.

I saw the trailer on YouTube.
I remember not being able to find it anywhere..

Stuff done with handheld cameras is usually pretty powerful at capturing the action, like a few of the scenes in Children of Men

But the statue of liberty's head just came flying off...Maybe the monster was planted inside the statue by aliens?

I bet my rig that there are aliens involved which invade.
