Can this dude keep a secret, or what? He also knows how to generate buzz. I thought Cloverfield was derivative [Godzilla, anyone?], but entertaining. It was the hype that propelled it to cult status. Abrams can market.

It was supposed to be just a monster movie like Godzilla, nothing more, nothing less. Abrams said it himself NUMEROUS times during interviews and even on the DVD that he just wanted to make a fun monster movie.

Sounds like a pretty awesome and interesting concept/ premise. If done well, who knows...

M Night Shamalan rode the mysterious bandwagon of trying to outwhit the audience and we all see where that got him. Cloverfield was a mess of a dissapointment, except for the rebar scene, and LOST is nothing but predictable now. I wouldn't be surprised if the trailer was nothing more than abrams' pointing and laughing at the audience on his way to the bank.

Lost predictable? Did you see it last night? Give me a break. Cloverfield may not have earned the regard given it by some people, but it was hardly a "mess." Qualify your opinions. It gives them more validity.

Lost - predictive is an oxymoron my friend.

I can see this workingIf truely a prequel to Cloverfield it could tie in nicely, little alien dude showing up who might actually be a young-in.. then some years later momma comes looking for her baby!

Abrams is one of the most creative guys in the industry. He's definitely right about the change in how movies are experienced. Fanboys always set themselves up for disappointment when they consume every bit of news and every trailer before a movie shows up in theaters. Studios need to think more about how to smartly market films so that they raise awareness without giving away the entire story. That way going to the theater isnt just perfunctory, as Abrams says.
