Cloverfield Sequel Might Not Happen

CloverfieldAlthough Paramount was quick to greenlight a Cloverfield sequel back in January, the director of the original monster flick says plans are currently on hold. Smartly enough, the filmmakers (Matt Reeves, producer J.J. Abrams, writer Drew Goddard) have decided they’d like to wait until they actually come up with an interesting story.

While ideas for a sequel - or a prequel - have been tossed around, Reeves told SCI FI Wire that nothing has really stood out so far. “We’re still kind of toying with what it’s going to be and whether or not we’re going to find something that will be as exciting for us to make and, hopefully, for an audience to watch. So we’ll see. It’s really in the baby, baby stages. And right now it’s definitely on hold until we come up with what that would be.”

Well, whatever the trio eventually decides - the film better not have a shaky cam involved. Otherwise, they can simply count me out.

Star Trek Movie Delayed Until Next Year

Star Trek LogoWell, it looks like we’re going to have to wait a little longer to beam anyone up.

Those who made it out to see Cloverfield in the past few weeks got a sneak peek at another J.J. Abrams production: .  (If you haven’t seen the clip yet, you can view it after the jump.)  Unfortunately, a major part of that trailer is now no longer true.

The highly-anticipated prequel/sequel was slated to be released ‘Christmas 2008’.  What it should have said was ‘December….Give Or Take a Few Months.’

According to Variety, the movie’s premiere will remain ‘under construction’ until May 8, 2009.

The film was simply part of a major reshuffling in ‘s calendar.  In most cases, a changed date usually signals bad news; that’s not the case with Trek.  In fact, the studio believes the movie will benefit from this shift.

Actors involved in the next installment include Tyler Perry, , Zoe Saldana, Eric Bana, and Leonard Nimoy.

Sequel News: ‘Cloverfield’, ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’

Cloverfield - a movie that’s only two weeks old - has already earned itself sequel buzz.  While that shouldn’t be surprising news given the film’s stellar debut numbers, the movie did drop 68% in its second week.  And let’s not forget the movie’s ending.  Wouldn’t the movie be better served as a stand-alone piece….or do people really need further explanation?

Well, regardless of what I might think, the negotiations have already begun.  Its ‘s hope that the three behind the first installment - director , producer and writer - will return to create them a monster-sized hit.  Who knows?  I actually found myself enjoying 28 Weeks Later, and I was convinced that would be a disaster.

‘Cloverfield’ Warning: Take Your Motion Sickness Pills


Tonight, I was really looking forward for my chance to see .  Not only was I intrigued by the trailers, I was relieved to watch a movie that was only 1.5 hours long.  A short run time basically guaranteed the action would start quickly.  Unfortunately, the production ended up feeling like the longest 85 minutes of my life.  (And that wasn’t because it was necessarily a bad film.)  It was also the most nauseating experience I had had in quite some time.  (And that wasn’t because it was a particularly gory film.  In fact, it was fairly tame.)  Cloverfield just happened to be the shakiest piece of film I can recall having to endure.  Period.

Had this been any other movie, I might have walked out on it.  The problem was that I wanted to sit through the whole thing.  (I needed to see that bad-ass monster for myself.)  If that meant averting my gaze through a third of the film, I figured that would still be better than completely leaving halfway through it.  I refused to wimp out.

But if any of you out there have a problem with motion sickness, heed my advice:  Take Your Dramamine!  Envision the shaky home video your friend took at your wedding. Then imagine them running with the camera.  Then extend that same piece of film (with no pauses) to movie-length.  I like to think that I can stomach a lot, but this was x 10.  (Though when compared to the sickening feeling I felt on a casino boat once, this was about half as bad.)

Tyler Perry Joins ‘Star Trek’ Film

Put Description Here - the man behind and - will be assuming a much smaller role for his next project.

The writer/producer/actor will be taking someone else’s direction while starring in the upcoming film.  (I believe this may be the first time he’s ever participated in something that didn’t have his name in the title.)  Perry will join a continuously expanding cast that already includes Eric Bana, Winona Ryder, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, John Cho and Leonard Nimoy. 

If the movie adds one more star, I believe it will have officially reached proportions.

Coming 1.18.08It has been a fiery topic among entertainment blogs and movie sites for months, and now the project previously known only by it’s release date - 1.18.08 - has finally got an official name: .

The film’s first trailer debuted prior to this summer’s smash-hit, , and has sparked speculation ever since. The rumors involved everything from the film’s poster and title to its plot and mysterious city-ravaging “monster.” And although many rumor mills figured out the film’s title some time ago, the second 1.18.08 trailer, which debuts this weekend before Paramount’s , makes the sci-fi thriller’s title official.

But with another two minutes of footage to scrutinize, I’m sure the fanboys will find no shortage of more things to ask questions about.
