Cloverfield director Matt Reeves revealed to MTV that the teaser trailer for Star Trek will be shown before his movie:

"Way back, J.J. was like 'When Cloverfield comes out, Star Trek will be on it,'" Reeves said of his mysterious monster flick, which will hit theaters on 1.18.08 with the Star Trek trailer attached. "I was like 'That's a terrific idea; that's exciting'. So, I've known for a long, long, time that was their plan, and I've just recently seen bits of the teaser. I think it's amazing, and it looks pretty incredible." RELATED: George Takei Calls William Shatner an 'Unfit' 90-Year-Old 'Guinea Pig' After Space Trip

"I think people are going to be very excited," he said, offering a sneak preview. "It's a teaser, you know, it's a teaser trailer. But still, I was like 'Wow!' Just the scope of it, the scale of it, you just look at it and it's so elegantly done."

Reeves has seen some of the footage from Star Trek and says the film "does look completely different and new ... but while having all the stuff that will make fans of Star Trek still feel fulfilled." He added "It's not your grandfather's Star Trek, that's for sure."

Star Trek arrives in theatres on December 25, 2008.
