Regarding the online stuff you posted: yeah, we're doing some fun stuff on the web. But, obviously, if the movie doesn't kick some massive ASS, who gives a rat's about what's online? So as you can imagine, we're focusing mostly on THAT. For what it's worth, the only site of ours that people have even FOUND is the 1-18-08.com site. The others (like the Ethan Haas sites) have nothing to do with us.

Our own site describes the movie as such: A giant monster movie (referred internally as Godzilla) which is shot using home video cameras from the point of view of real people who are experiencing the attack on New York City.

Watch the trailer!

The film's release date coincides with its title Cloverfield (1/18/08).
