Everything about this story is perfect: J.J. Abrams is supposedly working on a top secret monster movie called either 1.18.08 or Cloverfield or The Parasite. No one really knew about it until the trailer started appearing before Transformers this weekend. The preview still isn't officially online, however a pirated version has appeared on YouTube. But because the movie is supposedly shot with home video cameras, the effect of a pirated trailer is sorta perfect. Commenters at Cinematical think it's Lost-related.


I saw this trailer before the (terrible) Transformers. It mood of the trailer was very unsettling and piqued my interest. Searching for the missing title at the end made be even more interested.

A fantastic move only because the trailer was well done. Although, if it wasn't well done, the jackass in front of you would have trouble articulating loudly to his best girl, "I'm not going to see...uhhh...whatever that thing was. Yeah."

Looks like the trailer has been pulled down...

The trailer is a Ro-Beast destroying the NYC in the Voltron movie.

Watever! bunch of morons, want to show a film just show it already, clearly this film won't turn out good if you have to resort to gimmicks, btw for those of you who said TF was terrible, another bunch of morons go join the club

The movie is Godzilla part 2... get over it. And TF was a fantastic movie. I'd transform you into a toilet if my laser gun was in range to get you.

If you simply use Logical Deduction you will come to the conclusion Optimus Legend did. I think he was on to something. The main character in the Teaser for 1.18.08 was leaving the next day for JAPAN. the ro-beast(drop the robot part) made a screeching noise-like Godzilla-the fire balls, the fact that it's in New York so it can come out of the water again-that's why it attacted the Statue of Liberty and knocked it's head off, etc.

p.s. TF ruled

I love it when studios make trailers like this..Keeps you yearning for more. Similar to independence day or Transformers and how you never really knew what it was until it came out. But i suspect this movie to be 10X better being JJ Abrams has his share in it!! Can't wait. My calender is marked for 1/18/08!
