This is an interesting tidbit, but I don't know why they chose the Italian version of the video. It doesn't much matter, the action tells the story.

Looked like the upper half of Godzilla's body swimming away from the wreckage there at the end.

I still think we aren't ever going to get a clear look at the monster during the movie.

I also don't think that we'll get a really good look at the monster in this one. I'm also getting way too much of a Blair Witch vibe from this one anyway (which is bad as I thought that movie was horrendous).

I have the feeling that the audience will NEVER see the entire monster, just quick glimpses of its tail, feet, teeth, etc... I think in the end we will all be utterly confused and will end up making our own conclusions. Can't wait!

I fear that the marketing behind this movie will be more interesting than the film itself...

I'm always game for a good monster movie. I don't know anything about the script. I hope that the movie just doesn't focus on the social lives of New Yorkers and how a giant monster cramps their style. I want to see mayhem on a Godzilla like scale rampaging across the country. I'd also like to see a Cthulhu link here some giant Lovecraftian badboy. If it is just The Mist Meets The Big Apple I'll be severely disappointed.

I understand that most of the movie will be in the mode of the Blair Witch Project.

This picture has been totally debunked and so has the one here .

I have also heard rumors that the entire monster won't be shown in Cloverfield.
And I hope those rumors aren't true.

If a huge monster were real, my first and foremost goal would be to keep on living as long as I could.
My second goal would be to see all of the monster from head to tail.
I'd have to get a good look at it.  I would be compelled to see it.
Wouldn't you?

If the filmmakers go the Blair Witch route and not show the full monster and I pay $8-$9 to see it in the theater, I'm gonna be p**sed!
With the Blair Witch...not seeing her worked for that film.
With Cloverfield...we have to see the monster.

They had better show all of the monster.

From the trailers, that seems to be exactly what it's about.  I've decided to just skip Cloverfield and wait for someone else to rent or buy it on DVD, unless the buzz is REALLY good when it comes out.

As far as the Blair Witch goes, my belief is that there are two kinds of people: those who are scared by what they dont see, letting their imaginations create something far scarier than Hollywood could ever create, and then those who need to see something before its real to them. That's why its such a polarizing film - you either love it or you hate it. Note to all filmmakers: if you want a film to be really scary, it should work on both of these levels. The Blair Witch did work for me because it made me imagine scarier stuff than I actually saw, though I can understand it being long and boring for those waiting to see the monster.  Buggedout As for Cloverfield, we've all seen movies where the heroes are running to escape a city that's being destroyed (independence day, war of the worlds, that crappy new godzilla, etc). The difference between Blair Witch and Cloverfield is that an evil spirit could look like anything, whereas there's only so much you can do with a giant rampaging CGI monster. The only way it could work is if the monster was actually impressive looking, and we actually got to see it. I could be wrong, but this is my opinion.

Hard to compare Blair Witch to Cloverfield. Giant monster movies really aren't scary. They're exciting. People watch them to see cool monsters duke it out and stuff get wrecked. Like a disaster movie, it's about spectacle and suspense and thrills, not fear. For that, you have to see the monster. However, it is better if you don't see it right away, and it's much, much better if the trailer doesn't give the whole thing away as trailers often do.

After three seasons of Lost, I trust J.J. Abrams to know how to craft a compelling story, raise questions, tease the viewer, then show us something cool. We'll see the monster, but not until we really need to see the monster.

Harry Knowles at AICN has seen the movie and has a pretty much spoiler free review up. He liked the movie, though that doesn't mean a helluva lot to me.

Thought you guys might find it interesting.

Despite his constant referrals to how much this movie will rock, I'm still skeptical. No movie is so good that it goes beyond the hype. I'm going to wait for a second opinion on it.
