Thanks to movies like Pacific Rim and of course Godzilla, it seems as if projects featuring giant monsters are on the upswing; and as far as we're concerned, that's a pretty awesome thing. Know who else thinks it's awesome? Director J.J. Abrams.
Ever wonder how some of your favorite monsters would stack up against others size-wise? How much taller is Godzilla than, say, a T-Rex? How big is King Kong in comparison to both? Godzilla fought King Kong in Japan so they're about the same size, right? Wrong! Read on!
Filmmaker Drew Goddard will receive the Filmmakers Showcase Award at the 38th Annual Saturn Awards on July 26th, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films announced today. Read on for the details!
In the four-plus years that I have been reviewing films, I've gained a reputation among my friends and fellow critics as someone with strong - and often negative - opinions of horror movies. My opinions about horror are often met with disdain, as the majority of my reviews within the genre tend to lean toward the negative.
Ever since the success of Cloverfield fans have been hoping and praying for a sequel. Thus far we've seen fan-made viral videos, hoped that Super 8 was actually the return of the beast, and have heard tons of chatter but nothing concrete. Will we ever see Clovie again? The answer is YES.
Actually it's more like one sentence than a whole conversation, but for those of us jonesing for some news about the Cloverfield sequel, anything J.J. Abrams says about it is most welcome!
Around three weeks ago we showed you what could very well have been the first viral video for Cloverfield 2. Fake or not, everyone was pretty much in agreement that it was pretty badass, if not a little too much on the nose. How would the second video fare? Find out now!
Few things get me as excited as movies that feature giant monsters wrecking cities. Though the film has taken more than its fair share of criticism, for me Cloverfield delivered on the promise of colossal-sized creature action. Here we are two years removed, and a little video has surfaced over on YouTube (where else?) giving us a taste of what could be the next installment of the franchise.
One of my favorite films of last year was without question Cloverfield. It gave me, a huge monster movie fan, everything that I was looking for and, in this crappy cinema climate, needed. This weekend at WonderCon Abrams did a little talking about the franchise's future.
A few months ago you might recall we did a story that Hasbro’s over priced plastic version of the Cloverfield monster may have been cancelled. Nothing specific was ever said one way or another by the company, unfortunately, so we just had to go with the info available to us, which was that those who pre-ordered were getting notifications that the toy was discontinued.
It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve heard anything about a sequel to Cloverfield, even though the money it made during its theatrical and home video run makes it a no-brainer for the studio. Director Matt Reeves recently talked with MTV’s Movie Blog about it and gave some reasons why we’ve not seen anything yet.
Over at his other home on Action Figure, our man Nomad just got word from Hasbro that things are in flux on the state of the company’s upcoming Cloverfield monster toy, which may or may not be upcoming now...
If you’re one of the few who have yet to see Cloverfield and managed to avoid all the images of the monster once the film was released, congratulations. I have no idea how one would do that. If you’ve read this far, chances are you’re neither, so just move your eyeballs down a bit to check out some new pics of the monster fresh from the floor of Comic Con!
Finally we can all stop our complaining, hemming, and hawing because Paramount has announced its initial Blu-Ray lineup, and of course Cloverfield is on it.
