A little more on the JJ Abrams movie…

Written By: Gary on July 7, 2007 12 Comments

We’ve got some more URLs for that J J Abrams mystery movie that I saw the preview for, they appear to be semi-authentic.

Sadly, I’m not thinking it’s a Godzilla movie anymore :(

Update: Here’s a pretty good copy of the unnamed preview.

  • 1-18-08.com – Which has been modified to show a raqndom placement of two photos (I assume the quantity will grow). Domain created March 30, 2007. Everyone seems to think this one is real.
  • Parasite Movie – Supposedly a possible name for the movie. This page has a countdown until August first (with some other web addresses). Domain created Jun 7, 2007. The fact that the meta-words contain the word “transformers” makes me think this might be fake.
  • Ethan Hass Was Right – The weird shape is an interactive (flash) puzzle and you get a video when you solve it. Domain name not created until July 7, 2007 so I’m slightly skeptical on this one. It’s put together professionally, possibly for another movie if not related.
    And if you don’t have flash when you go to the above page, you get

    “…war came, no longer from the elemental nor from the star’s rain of fire. The world was again remade, and the glow was as the coming of the sun upon the Earth. The children of the gods were again too few, scattered and divided and among them walked the ancients and those whose thoughts were not as to the towers and the marvels, but to the End and the destruction of the Earth and to the fires from which nothing could escape”

    Not sure if the following are real sites sponsored by the producers or not. But supposedly someone has been pulling the Ethan Haas stuff from YouTube as fast as the 1-18-08 stuff.

  • Ethan Hass (dot com) – Please note Haas is spelt incorrectly. Created July 6.
  • Ethan Haas (dot org). Also created July 6, 2007.
  • Ethan Hass Was Wrong Blog
  • Ethan Hass Was Right Blog

    Also, most of the domains are all registered from different addresses.

    UPDATE! Please note from Angela’s comment below that the Ethan Haas sites appear to be not related to the 1-18-08 movie (but JJ does have some undiscovered ones).

      The Parasite Movie site is for real. There is an indirect connection. Paramount verified.

      The parasitemovie.com site is fake, beyond fake.

      This may or may not mean anything, but parasitemovie.com could be throwing people off. Many take it to mean “parasite” or that which lives off the destruction of others, taking the movie in a quasi-horror/scifi twist. That’s too overt for a viral marketing campaign from JJ. What if you think of it like “para-site”, meaning a web site that comes alongside the other efforts? Could be grasping at straws, but that’s what came to mind for me. And that’s all assuming they are connected and it isn’t fake or just a red herring.

      Per AICN, the Ethan sites are not related:

      Hey folks, Harry here… There’s conspiracy theories abounding regarding JJ’s little flick to juice us up for his badass STAR TREK recreation. So JJ Abrams wrote me to give us all a clue, cuz we’re at square one of this mystery! But note… the game sites apparently have nothing to do with JJ. And also… he seems to be stating that you guys have yet to find all the sites he’s put up… and yes, you’ll have to find them. The man is laughing at you, me and all of those hiding in the shadows. SO… find em if you can… let us know here at AICN… seems we have a scavanger hunt, ain’t it cool?

      “Dear Sir,

      Thanks for your support of our little movie. I can’t wait to talk to you more about it — of course, knowing you, by the time we talk you’ll know more than I will.

      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.

      Stay cool the rest of the summer — and thanks per usual for AICN!

      Very cool.

      So I’ve still got a chance it might be a Godzilla flick!

      Tossing games is nothing to do with 1-18-08. I did the Parasite Movie site to cash in – you can see it is registered at GoDaddy like all my other sites. Unfortunately it has back fired, I’m getting too much server traffic and it is costing me a fortune. I’m also constantly maintaining the forums because of dumb arse posters. Please spread the word this has nothing to do with 1-18-08.

      1-18-08 Official Trailer up

      Here is the official 1-18-08 movie preview. It’s so clear it’s hard to feel the amateurish video quality that the preview had in the theater… If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’ve mentioned the 1-18-08 preview before… Technorati Tags: 1-18…

      Steve from TossingGames.com didn’t post the above message. I spoke to his cousin today regarding this rumor.

    10. Tim says on: 17 July 2007 at 2:03 am

      FYI, Steve King didn’t say that ParasiteMovie.com has nothing to do with the whole scenerio. Someone else is posting those rumors. JJ told Steve to redirect the site to the trailer for an upcoming reveal.

    11. Steve King says on: 17 July 2007 at 9:17 pm

      Steve King did say Parasite Movie was a cash in. Please ignore those other guys. I think they are something to do with Ethan Haas. Don’t forget the whole 1st of August thing is Ethan Haas but people thought it had something to do with Cloverfield because I stuffed up and put the countdown on Parasite Movie.

      The whole JJ being my cousin thing is a joke. If JJ Abrams was my cousin do you think I’d be selling cornhole sets on the Internet?

    12. Steve King says on: 31 July 2007 at 2:32 am

      I’ve now made theparasitemovie.com redirect to transformers2.com. Hopefully now the world will see I’m just a loser Adsense whore trying to cash in on blockbuster movies.
