J.J. Abrams, you son of a bitch!

Last night a bunch of us went out to see Transformers and like most movies, I look forward to seeing the previews. Well, one of the previews for this movie was weird. It started off with a group of kids at a party, and the footage was from their POV since it was one of them recording it. Someone was leaving for Japan and they were just celebrating his departure.

Next thing you know you hear this ridiculous screeching noise, and then it flashes to them watching the news with updates on what’s going on. Then of course they go outside, and you see this gigantic fireball coming towards them, and then debris shoots their way. Next shot is them running around, flickering, screaming, then you’re out on the streets and hear people talking about it (“It’s alive!”)

The trailer ends with the Statue of Liberty’s head landing in the streets, and then it shows it’s release date of 1-18-08.

I actually remembered to look this up just now and have found a few websites that have come up for it, with the title and actual storyline still unknown. Most people think it’s a Godzilla movie, but basically it’s going to be one of those epic sci-fi movies.


I’ll keep this updated as I find more:

Goddamn, I just fell sucker for Guerrilla Marketing. ASSHOLES!

Either way, I really want to see this stupid movie. Damnit, I got sucked into the vortex. Seriously. Want to see it. So bad.

Anyone else get a chance to see this trailer? Oh yeah, TRANSFORMERS WAS AMAZING. k.

…war came, no longer from the elemental nor from the star’s rain of fire. The world was again remade, and the glow was as the coming of the sun upon the Earth. The children of the gods were again too few, scattered and divided and among them walked the ancients and those whose thoughts were not as to the towers and the marvels, but to the End and the destruction of the Earth and to the fires from which nothing could escape.


  1. @ Matt: I’m just unsure of the relation between the Class tv show, and the Ethan Haas character for this movie.. =

  2. I searched all night for the trailer on the net, but all had been taken down. I love J.J. Abrams because of Lost, so I’m so excited about this movie!!

    (BTW – Transformers was AMAZING! I love BumbleBee… he’s so cute! ^__^)

  3. I’m trying to solve this puzzle, but there doesn’t seem to be any way to interact with it. Am I missing something?

  4. You actually pay attention to the movie previews? I hate those! I want to see the movie, and only the movie. Man…that’s different.

  5. When I started reading this post, that exactly what I thought it was. I’ma see TRANSFORMERS soon, so maybe I’ll get to see the same trailor.

  6. Viral marketing at it’s best hey!

    Makes me wanna see this movie…

    Gonna have egg on their face if the story turns out to be a pile of SH*T though.

    Transformers not released here until 27th..that sucks…can’t wait

  7. According to this article, the Ethan Haas sites have nothing to do with Cloverfield. Which sucks.. but Abrams did mention there being more sites out there.. so hopefully someone will stumble across them soon!
