Godzilla meets Blair Witch Project ?!?

Written By: Gary on July 3, 2007 9 Comments

So I just got back from the movies and what’s more important than a movie review?!? A movie preview review! What’s the title of this movie? I don’t know. They didn’t list a title just that it was produced by J. J. Abrams. Plus they didn’t give it away as to what the movie is actually about, very strange…

So the trailer is a home movie of a party and after they establish the characters (and that it’s a going-away party) you hear a rumble and a noise outside. They then go up to the roof and hear the same noises and see an explosion in the distance. Then the camera angles get all Blair-Witch-like as they run around and there are a few more explosions (and screaming).

Then you just see J. J. Abrams name and the date of the release, 01.18.08, and that’s it. Very strange. Looks very cool.

I thought it was a Godzilla flick but the rumors on-line don’t think so (but that was their first impression too). But I’m still hoping…

UPDATE:
Plus they’ve updated the site at 1-18-08.com which now has a second photo and they are a flash image now that randomly layers them (instead of the single jpeg that was there before) and I imagine they’ll slowly add more (fyi, all the images are date-stamped 1-18-08).

They’ve been pulling down the trailers pretty fast but here’s a copy that was live on YouTube
It should give you an idea of what I’m talking about.

Please note I’ve put some additional information up on July 7th.

    A little more on the JJ Abrams movie…

    We’ve got some more URLs for the that mystery movie appear to be semi-authentic. Sadly, I’m not thinking Godzilla so much anymore though.

    1-18-08.com – Which has been modified to show a raqndom placement of two photos (I assume the quantity will grow…

    Yea I saw this trailer, and was very intrigued by it… it’s JJ Abrams… so we probably won’t know what the movie is about for another 7 seasons… lol

    But I’ll still go see it.

    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…

    It is interesting that Atari is coming out with Godzilla Unleashed Fall of 2007.

    Cloverfield – Review

    So I’ve mentioned this movie a few times before, mostly back in the summer of 2007 when I saw the unnamed 1-18-08 preview. I think I was pretty accurate in my original description when I originally referred to it as “Godzilla meets the Blair Witch Proj…
