LOST is awesome and this looks awesome too. It appears the movie will be a mystery in itself, much like LOST, so I doubt much will be revealed before it shows on screen.

Really? Someone sees Ivan Ooze? I was just kidding with the Power Rangers thing. I just see hair in the picture, personally.

I`m not betting on anything. But consider this: What if it`s a movie about Revelations (Bible)? Think about it: the statue of Liberty is the "whore of Babylon," and Babylon was a city of commerce.

And then there`s the number (I am getting way too deep into this, but bear with me) Atheists, chill out and just go with it. Look at it as fictional storytelling.

1-18-8. so it`s 1188. Take the first and third numbers, and add them together. Then the second and fourth. You get 9 and 9. So 99. In Medieval Ages, 100 was considered the perfect number, because everything fits into it evenly. And since God was prefect, 100 was one of God`s (many) numbers.

99 was less than perfect, which is what Lucifer was, less than perfect to rule Heaven. So 99 was considered one of his (many) numbers. This is why in the Divine Comedy (Dante Alighieri), there were 9 ring

I have no idea what it is but this trailer sure has hooked me. if its power rangers I am going to laugh so hard haha

I was just looking at the pictures and noticed something a little weird....
1. The pic with the 2 girls : look closely at the top of the picture between their eyes. In the little V SHAPE it looks a bit like an alien head??
2. Nothing interesting but how freaky does that bit of the girls head on the right side of the pic with the guy drinking beer look?? Maybe the alien has already arrived??
This is just a little theory, but you know, its all i can come up with at this point..

godzilla or mecha godzilla would be so sick but it could be a multitude of things. maybe even a new monster or something. deff not king kong obviously. i dunno if godzilla would create that kind of explosion though. hmmmm, not a super hero i dont think. some say chrono trigger? eh i dunno about that one? i am intrigued to find out what the hell the big ass thing is.

I`ve read on a few sites that it could have something to do with the Cthulhu. Check it out on Wikipedia (I know, it`s not always the most accurate place for info). It was created by the famous horror author H. P. Lovecraft sometime around 1928. It`s this huge monster said to be like a moving mountain who came from the stars to rule this planet. I could see this as a possiblity.

Cloverfield is the "cover" title, and is the name of the street where the production company is located. It`s the working title, not the final one.

It`s called Cloverfield and is a monster movie from the producers of Lost, the writer also wrote some Lost episodes as well. And like I said it`s called CLOVERFIELD no 1-18-08, that`s the release date.

This isnt Godzilla... Its King Ghidorah!

The clues may be ambiguous but they do fit.
- Its huge
- Its able to breath lava bolts
- It is large enough to shake the ground with it`s actions
- It comes from a group of monsters known for tearing buildings/monuments apart
- Based on the fact that he pops up in the middle of large city its not unreasonable to suggest he came down from space

And no, I dont seriously think this is actually what that is, but he is the first thing that came to mind. :)

"The flight number for the plane in lost was 811 the date jan 18th backwards is 811 the year 2008 aka 08 is the month of August, probably the month Lost season 3 is going to come out on dvd."

Oops! Oceanic Flight 815 is the flight that crashed on LOST. As for the Smoke Monster on the show, it`s been seen a lot this past season and is actually a security system. The sound in the trailer is not the same sound the Smoke Monster makes which is a more mechanical, metallic sound.

The trailer looks awesome, my only complaint however is for God`s sake, give NYC a freaking break. It`s not the only large city in the United States! I can`t wait to see it though. :)

Has anyone found any links between this and the Ethan Haas thing? I don`t really see a link between the two, and if we`re going off of info from rumors on the internet, we`d need a confirmation from someone working on the project. Ethan Haas seems more like a "War of the Worlds"-esque alien survival thing, and lets that slip out a bit easily. Too easy for it to be related to 1-18-08

It reminds me of that monster/dinosaur thing that was never really shown on Lost when the plane first crashed on the island. It ate some people and then hasn`t been seen or heard from lately. Maybe it made it`s way to NYC? But J.J. better be going somewhere with this story otherwise he deserves a swift kick in the sack!

I`ve searched around and found a few things.
1. It is NOT Godzilla.
2. There is a game based on it called Ethan Haas Was Right which can be found here: http://www.EthanHaasWasRight.com
3. There is what I think is the official website of the movie: http://www.1-18-08.com. The only things on the website right now, however, are two pictures that you can drag around.
4. The monster itself is supposedly being refered to as "The Parasite".
5. Cast includes: Michael Stahl-David ("The Black Donnellys"), Odet Jasmin, Mike Vogel ("Supercross") and Lizzy Caplan ("The Class").
6. Also found a really weird blog: http://ethanhaaswaswrong.blogspot.com/

I thought I heard the "lion" thing too. Voltron would be interesting.

Hehe, here`s another possibility. They looked around and asked "Where`s Jason!?" Power Rangers. But no, Disney owns the rights to it now, so it would only suck.

This is so incredibly lame and it is setting peopel up for a big disappointment, like FrcknA said.
Why would he not release any info about it? Answer: `Cause it`s a crappy movie and he wants people to see it so it makes money (and isn`t a flop) due to the surprise factor!

I went to go see Transformers... saw this trailer, and the entire time my best friend was yelling, "IT`s GODZILLA!". Pffhfff idk. I don`t want to think it is.

Anyway, wicked trailer. But then again, remember the top-secret hype about "The Village" by M. Night Shamalawhateverhisnameis and it ended up turning out to be pretty lame?

When I went to the Transformers premiere and this trailer ended, some dude in the back yelled out "You BASTARDS!!". I couldn`t stop laughing.

But by the way, the code name for this movie is "Cloverfield" with a working title as "Slusho". Look it up on Wikipedia. There`s no more information there, but it proves I`m right.

Oh... and TRANSFORMERS was F*CKING AWESOME!!!

Sounded a bit like a whale to me but that`s TOO weird. I think Godzilla is too predictable but you never know. Looks very interesting, I like the fact you don`t know what it is- I hate it when trailers give away too much of the movie. I hope it manages to stay a secret because I hardly ever see a film without knowing the whole damn plot.

I can guarantee that you will NOT see the monster the whole way through...think about lost, everytime you see a trailer for it and you think it will reveal something it doesn`t.
Now think, what do you want to know here? :

what are we not going to find out?

err Aristotle i think you`re confusing good movies with entertaining movies. Transformers is entertaining, but not good, there is a big difference between the two.

But this movie looks quite good, 01/18/08 might be the actual name though, since when bad things happen, people refer to the date all the time, like 9/11 or 7/7

"Why didn`t they just cram the all-spark into megatron from the way beginning!!!! Optimus knew it would kill a transformer if you stick the all-spark in its chest so why wait till the very end. They could have even done it while megatron was frozen."

1) He didn`t want to kill Megatron.
2) They didn`t want to destroy the all spark, they were going to use it to rebuild their civilization.

Pay attention. Then whine.

Some guy claimed to have a friend that worked on this film ( claimed ), he said that the entire movie stays a mystery, you never get to see what it is. You just see alot of explosions, panic and noise through the "homemade" video. The creature remains a mystery. That would suck! I say its Voltron! That would rock! :D

this is to cmanatlan....the reson why they didn`t do that waz because megatron waz optimus prime`s younger brother...optimus prime did not want to kill his brother, he told sam (shia`s character) that he is to put the cube into his own chest (optimus prime`s chest), not megatrons if worse comes to worst ......even tho megatron waz bad, optimus prime waz such a nice loving being that he could not bare to see his brother die, and if he could keep his brother alive and destroy the cube (which waz what his brother wanted, and without it he could not do much evil...)...then optimus prime waz willing to sacrifice his own life.....cuz megatron waz still family.....

hope that cleared things up for ya! ;-)

its codename is slushio or something like that. which is a reference to Alias. and i hope to got it isnt an alias movie...

my personal guess is a giant monster flick where you never see the giant monster. at a 30 million dollar budget... they probably could barely afford this trailer.
