It looks like my prediction last week was a little off. While I guessed that the Cloverfieldtrailer had to arrive online by Friday (when Beowulf hit theaters), it took Quicktime until today to get it up.
Much improved and a lot of action. I thought the Statue of Liberty head in the first teaser looked a little too CG. It would seem that so did Abrams and Reeves, as the sequence now looks a whole bunch better.
What did surprise me is how much action there is. Explosions and destruction everywhere. Wasn't this supposed to be a semi-low budget film? I don't know, looks like a big-budget tentpole to me.
We don't get to see the creature, but do get to see the silhouette of one of its spawn. It isn't much, but at least they aren't pulling a Blair Witch on us.
Check out the trailer for Cloverfield (yes, that's the title) at Quicktime.
