Ain't It Cool News (
Movie News


Hey folks, Harry here - and this is kind of fucking hilarious. You see the day before Moriarty wrote his story announcing SUPER 8 and what he thought it was - Drew and I chatted about a very different story. Drew thought it was the Spielberg/Abrams project - but somewhere along the way in his research and shaking down of insiders he was led up the garden path to believe... SUPER 8 was CLOVERFIELD 2. Wrong. How do I know? A bird told me. And then just a few minutes ago, over at someone who just saw the theatrical release print of IRON MAN 2 tonight around midnight - saw the trailer!!!
“In 1970 Area 51 was closed down and everything was shipped to an undisclosed location in Ohio”. Then you see a train carrying lots of cargo loads. Cut to a car driving down the road that jumps up on the tracks and heads straight toward the train. Cut to black screen and then the words “From Director J.J. Abrams”. Then back to the train and car colliding into each other, the the train derails, the camera slowly zooms in on one of the tipped over cargo cars of the derailed train, then something is punching on the walls inside the train cart trying to escape. Cut to black screen and then the title ”Super 8“.
This sounds absolutely fantastic. SHOW ME THE MOVIE NOW! LOVE IT! That's literally all I need to ever know about the movie. Right there. Enough. Show it. Now.

    by drew mcweeny

    So even though I was the only person to break the story about "Super 8," and there was NO OTHER MENTION about it before me, and I was explicit that there was a good chance it was NOT "Cloverfield 2," I'm "unreliable"? <P>I broke the story. Period. And I absolutely separated out the rumor from the fact. All anyone else has done is clarify further the story I broke. I'd consider that fairly fucking dead center reliable, Mike_D.

  • May 6, 2010, 3:03 a.m. CST

    by blakindigo

    If you have, what say you?

  • mmhmm

  • May 6, 2010, 3:06 a.m. CST

    Mike_D, I think you lost us. Care to elaborate?

    by blakindigo

    Do you mean that Moriarty broke the story that "Spider-Man" was shelved? Or that Raimi was being pressured?

  • and it turned out to be gabage. Apparently he thought it was the kid from "Percy Jackson" who was supposed to star as the new Peter Parker. Nope. Pretty embarassing.

    Moriarty = Fat-Ass Anderson Cooper Wannabe

Tell me again what was inaccurate about the "Super 8" information I broke. Please. Or tell me why you're sure Sony, who lied when they postponed "Spider-Man" in the first place, is telling you the absolute truth about the casting process so far.

    and in record fucking time for a nerd fight. It reminds me of back in the day when I worked at Taco Bell, and there was this one guy who quit. He was pretty good at running the steam cabinet. Then one day, a hobo wandered in and started telling everybody the guy who quit was now working at Wendy's and he fuuuucking sucks making square hamburgers. But the guy who quit Taco Bell, who now works for Wendy's, had come by for a visit, was in the bathroom, in fact, and heard the hobo disparage him. He got all pissed, too.

    It hardly sounds "fantastic"

    by Drsambeckett1984

    Moderately interesting perhaps. Just because J.J is involved doesnt automatically make it brilliant. Alias was nonsense. M.I3 was a real let down. CLoverfield was ok but shallower than Paris Hilton's soul. <P> The only solid thing he has ever done is Star Trek, lets not go painting him as the new messiah yet.

    what's the "fucking hilarious" part?

    I prefer MI2 to MI3

    by Drsambeckett1984

    Dougray Scott was a solid villain and some of the action sequences were really cool, it didnt really feel like Mission Impossible to me though, more like Bond, but that was a good thing. <P> MI3 was just terrible. <P> The first MI is easily the best.

    So a description of a teaser has you that amped

    by Phategod2

    Harry you sound like a fan boy.

    Newton was bad in Mi2. It's not a good movie, but 2>3

    by JuanSanchez

  • May 6, 2010, 3:45 a.m. CST

    Anyway - shooting a trailer before shooting the movie?

    by JuanSanchez

    It's just gotten stupid. Eventually one will be shown and the movie will never actually be made - like the Variety ad for Jan De Bont's Godzilla.

  • May 6, 2010, 3:48 a.m. CST

    I think she was bad, but I wasn't watching her performance—

    by blakindigo

    —Dougray Scott was the BEST villain the series has ever had. Still prefer 3 though. Better storytelling, excellent set ups, Lawrence Fishburne. I didn't like the Vatican bit (too silly), but, the bridge scene was good stuff. And, Phillip Seymour Hoffman was good.

    Dislike the description because it's too simple

    by Eliywahoo

    Imagine if the pay off of an x-files episode was an alien knocking on a train car that's been derailed, what is exciting about that, it takes me nowhere special that I haven't already been. That is as special as me designing a trailer in which a man asks to be flown up in a helicopter, once he's in the air says he has to initiate the test, throws someone out, and he lives. LAME, give us something original and more interesting.

  • May 6, 2010, 3:51 a.m. CST


    by Drsambeckett1984

    I was really looking forward to Hoffman in MI3 but the character was so underdeveloped. As for the Rabbits Foot, just ridiculous.

  • May 6, 2010, 3:52 a.m. CST



    hes like the ex boyfriend that gets dumped for a hotter more well adjusted dude so he starts stalking his ex girlfiend's myspace page writing dellusional claims like hes better than the new jock boyfriend who drives a beamer and has a 10 inch cock and fucks for 2 hours even tho the nerdy ex is a minute man.

  • May 6, 2010, 3:53 a.m. CST

    why it was fucking hilarious


    Because 72 hours ago, Drew was debating running the story - which was actually more right at that point, but by holding off - he got some bad information that cluttered the picture. It's funny because that's how this game is sometimes. Something that's crystal clear can become muddied and so forth. SO the trailer plays and Drew ends up getting beat up a bit, when had he gone 24 hours earlier, he never would have said Cloverfield 2. And Drew and I discussed it at length. He works his ass off to get stuff before anyone - sometimes though - the vision gets muddied.

  • May 6, 2010, 3:57 a.m. CST

    Come to think of it, you're right, Drsambeckett1984.

    by blakindigo

    He was great in the opening scene. And, the trailers. Not the most memorable death scene. The biggest flaw, IMO, is that we never got to see an objective pov from his character. It was using Hitchcock's template too literally.

  • May 6, 2010, 3:59 a.m. CST

    HEADGEEK, he had a disclaimer on the "Cloverfield 2"

    I honestly don't get it... What makes that more special than any other trailer? Hell, hearing that it may be some E.T. Homage makes it even less interesting to me. I'm not trying to be knee-jerk in a negative response, I just truly don't understand the point of this kind of thing being unannounced and kept under lock and key until the last minute.

    A great Hollywood Woo film. And Hard Target, too, for that matter -especially the superior workprint. It's a solid action movie despite the presence of Van Dammage. Lance Henriksen is king.

    Cloverfield 2 did seem a bit unlikely

    by kevred

    It made a very healthy profit due to being very cheap to make and having a big viral-marketing lead-in. With a second film, the cat would be out of the bag, the budget would likely be bigger, and how many people really liked the first one, anyway?<p>Personally this new thing sounds better, though it also sounds a lot like Signs.

  • May 6, 2010, 9:05 a.m. CST

    Yes, Bullet in the Head, The Killer, Hard Boiled

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    Better Tomorrow, etc. are superior - The Killer is the best action film of the 80's along with Die Hard and Aliens, IMO, but you said GOOD film. Those two definitely qualify, especially Face/Off which is completely in line with the themes of his HK work. I don't detect a lack of passion there. It was only after that, with MI2, that Woo went downhill.A pity, since he seemed to have finally found his feet with US filmmaking by that time. Of course, it didn't help that his style became much copied by other US films around that time like The Matrix and was starting to become assimilated into the mainstream of action movies, thus diluting the potency of the original innovator.

That crap just makes it seem like YOU don't believe it. 12 years is a long time. More than enough years to figure out that most talkbackers talk directly out of their assholes and bypass the brain entirely. Oddly immature and under-informed about Internet/File sharing issues?

    Whatever you think about War of the Worlds as a good film or not, it was all about character. Now you may not have liked them (I did for the record), but it was a character driven peice set around the invasion of aliens.

    Your assessment of AICN in its current incarnation is spot on. If it weren't for Vern and his hysterical essays, I'd have no reason to continue reading here. Harry's BLADE 2 review is the most memorable review I've ever read because it repulsed me so completely. He nearly ruined that movie for me because whenever I watch it I cringe recalling his semen-obsessed prose. Quint's babbling article on LOOPERS this week nearly drove me away too. It's a shame because back in its heyday this was my favorite site for scoops and geek culture. Thankfully the Onion's AVClub still rocks

    The first Mario Galaxy came out in 2007. It's the sequel that's coming out in two weeks. Clearly you've never played it. If you like classic Mario games, you're missing out. The game drops the wandering, aimless shit from Mario 64 and Mario Sunshine, and instead delivers the best 3D platformer ever made. You don't have to take my word for it. Quoteth the great wikipedia- "Towards the end of 2007, Super Mario Galaxy was named Game of the Year by IGN, GameSpot, Nintendo Power, GameTrailers, Edge and Yahoo! Games."

    Mario Galaxy was released in 2007. The gameplay was highly innovative and original. It won game of the year and is easily one of the best Mario games ever. <p> Now the sequel to that game, Mario Galaxy 2, is whats coming out in a few weeks. Based on early footage it looks easily as good if not better then the original, with far more interesting level design. Early reviews have been nothing but praise and perfect score, and it'll probably will game of the year again. <p> Bottom line is the Mario franchise as good as it's always been. I'm not a huge gamer but Mario games are always quality.

    Kind of looking for a fresh spin on aliens...

    by SK229

    anyone else getting tired of the same stories and angles getting trotted out over and over and over again? There are a lot of other directions you could go in with what aliens might be/are and yet it's always the same shit. Even a movie that posits they're some kind of mental abstraction that we collectively come up with to handle some repressed human memory would be a lot more interesting. Anything to do with Area 51 is almost moot at this point... the X-Files did it to death as do all these UFO and alien docs and shows on the History, Travel, Discovery, you name it, they've got some kind of reality series on ghosts or UFO's. I guess there's always room for more, if done right, but I don't know... sometimes I think we're getting to the end of fresh ideas and ways of doing genre material. Case-in-point - all the 'next Alive in Joburg' short films that have come out recently like 'The Gift', Panic Attack!, and The Raven... all technically brilliant, but there's almost no hint of an actual story and practically no acting or human element in any of them... we just keep getting the same stuff recycled over and over and it looks like that's the way it's gonna continue with the new talent coming up. The only recent movie I thought was derivative but original enough in its own ways was Moon.

I put the Iron Man movies on par with "Raiders", but I can't think of anything that comes close to that, maybe the "Bourne" flicks. As long as Abrams doesn't blast light into anamorphic lenses, warping the fuck out of everything, thus rendering the actor's heads akin to marshmallows, I'll be cool. Don't get me wrong - I thought "Star Trek" was a monumental achievement - story/plot wise. Photographically I thought it was crap on a hot stick.

In fact, one of the things that upset me about the nmovie was all that wuxia bulslhit. You see, the Battle Of Red Cliff ACTUALLY HAPPENED. It's not a fictional battle. It's not soemthing out of chinese lenge,d it's an historical event,. and all those impossible superhuman wuxia stuff just ruined the movie for me. There could had been hundreds of ways to tell a great epic story with badass character doing their war stuff without all that wuxia nonsense! It really pissed me off. Specially because some characters were really interesting, like the very smart embassador who could predict seasonal wind changes.<br><br>The movie just didn't pleased me, and i doubt the 4 hours version would do me any good, as in, what's ruiend the movie for me is something that will aslo be in the longer version, the wuxia bullshit.<br><br>The best thing from that movie was to see that other countries can now produce big ass epics that can rival anything that Holylwood produces. I'm loving that democracy in epic filmmaking.

    Just saw the trailer....

    by The_Lovely_Funkiness

    ...and it very well could be a prequel to Cloverfield. Based on the trailer alone, there is nothing that prevents this from being a prequel. I'd be willing to bet a days pay that this is the backstory to Case Designate: "Cloverfield".

    Considering how much money is involved in the american movie industry, how big it is,a dn how much money it moves, i'd say any movie news from a big studio involving well known filmmakers is big news. Maybe we have became despodents, but the thing is, 50 million dollars IS A LOT OF MONEY! That today people in America would say that a 50 million dollars movie is a small budget movie is just an indication of how big any movie made in Hollywood really is. Consider that the chinese movie RED CLIFF was done with a 80 million dolalrs budget, which in Holylwood it's the kind of budget nobody bats much of an eyelid anymore, and you cna tell how inflated things are there. therefore, news about a movie is big news because it's all big business.

    No Super 8 Trailer

    by slayergirl_13

    I was looking forward to seeing this trailer all day after reading about it online, but it was not shown with the Iron Man 2 print played in my IMAX theater. I even stayed after the bonus clip at the end of the credits and NOTHING!!! Stupid theater!

    Movies are not just movies anymore

    by AsimovLives

    Movies are big business. Their budgets are huge, even among the so-called "low budget" productions, and the introductionof viral marketing creates social and cultural impacts, evne if shortlived but it's still there. Movies ar enot just movies anymore. Movies transcends what's on the screen. There is no "it's just a movie".

    No, Clovie doesn't return then

    by AsimovLives

    Well, if that means no more anoying fucking yuppes pretending to be audiences surrogates and lead characters, then i guess that's a good enough trade off. Clovie took one for the team. Clovie, i salut you.

    Either you are 15 years old and blinded by getting awhiff of Megan Fox's snatch, or one of those potbellied, balding middle age dudes that grew upo glued to the crappily animated TV show. Either's a crap "B" movie. II was a total POS. People like budweiser beer, and it sells a LOT. Doesn't mean it's good.

    Abrams's movies pleases the 13 year old in us

    by AsimovLives

    The age when we were all retard, fucking stupid, ignorant, confused, emotionally fucked up, devoid of life experience, clueless that there's more to a girl then just a cum receptable, that there's more type of female breauty then just the slut look, and didn't know any better about anything.

    One of the most disappointing films ever. The dialog and acting was so embarrassing, I couldn't even watch it to the end. I didn't even want to watch any movies at all for like a month after that.

  • May 7, 2010, 10:50 a.m. CST


    by ClayG

    Your post tells more about what you were like when *you* were 13 than the rest of us...personally, it never occurred to me, ever, to see a girl as 'nothing more than a cum receptacle.' Nor have I personally ever liked 'the slut look.' You poor excuse for a human being. If you really think Abrams' Star Trek, for one, had anything to do with those kinds of values, then you'll probably just answer this talkback with mindless insults and derision. That's what you'll probably do, anyway.

    PowerRing: Fuck you

    by Playkins

    Don't start pulling that presumptuous shit on me, asshole. You don't know me any better than I know you so don't think for a second that your elitist armchair-director opinions mean jack shit. Based on what you said I could make a guess that you're one of those spoiled, entitled little whiny 20-year old fanboys, but I didn't need to go there, did I? I go to movies to be entertained- THAT'S ALL. The fact that I'm willing overlook a few problems with a script for the sake of being entertained doesn't make me any less of an educated viewer. It simply means that I neither expect nor feel owed that every movie should be an award winner.<P> Grow the fuck up. And FYI- I'm 35, a professional artist in the game industry (formerly films until I got sick of the egos). I jog every day, I'm not overweight hate Star Wars, liked Transformers back in the day and I'm very happiy married to a beautiful woman. Go fuck yourself.

    monster maybe?

    by nikem3

    probably just my mind trying to create images just like we all did after cloverfield trailer but right after the words "Next Summer" with the flash.. if you slow it down.. kinda looks like a monster maybe? or a demon or something?

    It IS Cloverfield 2!

    by sven1607

    I just watched a totally enhanced copy of the trailer, and have studdied every pixel of every frame for clues, as JJ loves to put these things in his trailers. If you look VERY CLOSELY during the explosion, you will see a VERY small green tag, looks like a metal address tag from a crate on the train, and though it is barely legible, it says, "Cloverfield, OH", and I can't make out the zip code. There is also a small symbol I can't quite make out, might be a skull and crossbones, but it's so illegible it could be anything. But there's PROOF. If I found it, I'm sure everyone else will find it, if I had a way to do a screen capture I would post one. So rest assured, it IS CLOVERFIELD 2!!!!!

    Bullshit. Go tell your lies to soemone who could buy that. Well, you are int eh right place, there's lots of people here who buys the Abramanito's bullshit like hook and sinker without questioning. Yeah, you're so special... NOT!

    Super 8 trailer

    by Busyguy4

    Just saw Iron Man. Not as good as the first one but still entertaining. The trailer for Super 8 had everyone guessing. But correct me if I'm wrong but the pickup truck that get's hit by the train looks an awful lot like Roy's truck from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Hmmm... an inside joke between Spielberg and Abrams perhaps?
