Finally it is getting a name. Yes, a proper name. Very soon the top-secret J.J. Abrams project commonly referred to as â€œ1-18-08â€ or â€œCloverfieldâ€ will be christened with its official title.
Coming Soon has revealed that the name of the highly-anticipated film will be released along with a brand new trailer on November 16 prior to the opening screenings of Robert Zemeckis’ fantasy adventure Beowulf. So we can all rejoice in the fact that we will no longer have to pore over the original trailer, searching in vain for any small detail that may hint to the identity of the mysterious creature terrorizing New York.
The original trailer, first released during the opening Transformers screenings back in June, has created a hive of activity across the internet, with swarms of bloggers and crazed Lost fans uncontrollably hyping the film up to event status, in much the same way as the release of The Blair Witch Project back in ’99.
So far very little has officially (and truthfully) been released about the project, temporarily named on IMDb as â€œUntitled J.J. Abrams Projectâ€, apart from the rather ambiguous but super-cool photo website (www.1-18-08.com). Confirmed for sure are the director (Matt Reeves) and writer (Drew Goddard), as well as several key stars, Michael Stahl-David, Odet Jasmin, Mike Vogel, Lizzy Kaplan, and Jessica Lucas.
November 16. Write it down. Remember this date, because it is the glorious day when we will finally be released from our bubble of confusion and freed into the wonderful land of knowledge.
