There’s a 5 minute chunk of the forthcoming J.J. Abrams Cloverfield film up and about the webs. You’ll find it here. It looks amazing. The trailer is chilling with realism and any American who watched TV all day on September 11, 2001 should feel an additional stir.
This movie seems to address 9/11’s imagery and themes without beating you in the face with them (looking at you War of the Worlds.) And that is a great choice. Without writing a review for a film that hasn’t been released yet, we can assume that the metaphoric monster that takes Manhattan is an inexplicable force from somewhere far away that we don’t understand. Sound familiar? Keep it subtle, J.J.
And from the looks of the new trailer, linked below, the whole movie is shot in that shaky, handheld first person p.o.v., so in somewhat atypical fashion for TheFeed, we're assuming the best.
