A while back we gave you guys the first word that Paramount was finally laying down plans to get a real Friday the 13th box set out to fans (read it here), and over the weekend the first bit of confirmation came down from the wilds of Kentucky.
Our man Andrew Kasch just called in with some very good news for you Friday the 13th freaks out there...
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.
Thanks to the Associated Press, the news hit the Net this morning that Paramount Pictures is teaming up with MTV Networks and Makena Technologies to make thousands of video clips from Paramount's movie library available inside the virtual 3-D online worlds of There.com and vMTV.
We're still not sure if the monster rampage flick known as Cloverfield (review) will be making a debut on Blu-ray this April 22nd, but we just found out that there will be something else emerging with the regular DVD.
Love it or hate it; curse its name until you’re blue in the face or sing its praises from the mountaintop, Cloverfield (review) ain’t done with us just yet; we still have to talk about the DVD until you’re sick of hearing about it!
If you're like me, or several other people who saw Cloverfield (review), then you've probably got some questions about the film's monster. What is it? Is it a baby? Were the parasites offspring? What was with the tiny arms on its underbelly? Why did it change size?
The audio on this video sucks, just want to get that out of the way. Whoever was asking J.J Abrams questions at the US-Ireland Alliance Party (?) forgot to make sure her mic was working, so you’ll not be able to hear much of what she’s asking.
Much like the movie, the figure based on the monster seen in Cloverfield (review) was met with mixed opinions (“Hasbro's Cloverfield Monster Figure Revealed” – February 2008). The toy just didn't quite look like what we saw in the film.
Color me curious about this one! Most of us were waiting for this figure if only to get a good look at the beast itself! I must admit when Hasbro announced they had the license, I was a bit worried. Would it be a true representation, or would it be dumbed down a bit and made to look cutesy?
It sure is strange in this day and age to hear about a major toy creator making the official toy for a horror/ monster movie as opposed to, say, your Sideshow or Gentle Giant. Apparently the makers of Cloverfield just wanted to make sure their figure gets into as many places as possible.

Three days to go until we find out if Cloverfield will live up to all the hype. Odd though that we haven't seen much in the way of mass marketing this week (aside from the creature spoilers I refuse to run ... as I want to keep the beast a secret). However, AOL/Moviefone did put up a video today that lets us get to know the character of Marlena a little more. There's no carnage or beasties, but it's something...
