Though I still don't know what to officially call the project, we have been alerted to a small new detail for Cloverfield/1-18-08.
We already know that Cloverfield is taking the Blair Witch approach by having (almost) the entire film shown from the perspective of a video camera, but it turns out that the story will start at the end. Capiche?
While The Blair Witch Project suggested the video we were watching was found a year after the 'incident', the good people at AICN claim that Cloverfield will begin after its own 'incident' as well; but this will be shown in the film.
I think the one thing that’s undisputable about the trailer is that it worked. It got people talking. Not putting a title on the teaser was a genius idea, and someone deserves a promotion for that one touch. I think that, more than anything, got people buzzing. People seem intrigued at the idea of a whole film being shot like that, and that’s pretty much what you’ll get. The film starts with a rescue crew cleaning up after the entire incident, and one of them finds a camera. They rewind the tape, press play... and the playback is the movie that unfolds.
That's it. What? You thought there was more? This project is top-secret people!
