Still haven’t seen “Cloverfield” yet? Still wondering what the monster in the movie looks like? Okay, so you maybe you’re not wondering that last part so much, since I already showed you what the monster looks like (see it in all its ugly glory here if you’re still clueless). Now the studio has released a minute long clip from the movie that shows parts of the monster as it goes through New York, soldiers shooting at it, and the idiot with the camcorder shouting “Oh my God” so much I wanted to reach into the screen and slap him.
Cloverfield follows five New Yorkers from the perspective of hand held video camera. The movie is exactly the length of a DV Tape and a sub-plot is established by showing bits and pieces of video previously recorded on the tape that is being recorded over. The movie starts as a monster of unknown origin destroys a building. As they go to investigate, parts of the building and the head of the Statue of Liberty come raining down. The movie follows their adventure trying to escape and save a friend, a love interest of the main character.
