Cloverfield Update: New Trailer, New Images

So what’s been going on with J.J. Abrams’ other movie — you know, the one called “Cloverfield”? According to various sites around the net, the film is set to get a brand spanking new trailer in front of “Beowulf”, which is being released today. Plus, the official name of the movie is supposed to be revealed in the trailer. Meanwhile, some new images from the movie have arrived in our in-box thanks to reader Garth. The new images (or at least, they’re new to me) still don’t show the movie’s creatures, just a lot of promo stills of characters running, a soldier firing a bazooka, and survivors filming themselves. Which makes you wonder — if weird looking creatures are trying to eat you, would you really be taking the time to film everything? Seriously?

A monster attack in New York as told from the point of view of a small group of people.

Starring Michael Stahl David, Odet Jasmin, Mike Vogel, Lizzy Caplan, Blake Lively, and directed by Matt Reeves. J.J. Abrams produces through his Bad Robot shingle.

Here is a bootleg version of the new trailer for those of you who can’t wait. A better (i.e. less “leany”) version should show up online by next week, I’d imagine. Update: Scratch that. Here’s a clean version of the second trailer.
