The updates continue to stream in (literally) for Cloverfield. While the last update came with a couple additional spots, Paramount has released the film's first batch of stills. Better yet, we have also been alerted to some new details on the film's monster. Or should I say baby?

Cloverfield Stills and Monster Talk

The good people at /Film have posted a great article, somewhat spoiler-ish, on Cloverfield's monster. While the creature lays destruction wherever it goes, JJ Abrams and effects crew think of it more like a baby.

The concept for the monster (affectionately known simply as “Clover” in-house) is simple, says Abrams. “He’s a baby. He’s brand-new. He’s confused, disoriented and irritable. And he’s been down there in the water for thousands and thousands of years.”

And where is he from? “We don’t say – deliberately,” notes Goddard. “Our movie doesn’t have the scientist in the white lab coat who shows up and explains things like that. We don’t have that scene.”

Not only is the creature disoriented – he’s downright angry. “There are a bunch of smaller things – humans – that are annoying him and shooting at him like a swarm of bees,” observes Reeves. “None of these things are going to kill the monster, but they hurt it and it doesn’t understand. It’s this new environment that it finds frightening.”

Cloverfield opens to theaters on 1-18-08.
