Who is Ethan Haas?

The mind-blowing teaser for the top secret J.J. Abrams movie known only as "Cloverfield" can now be seen online.

The "Ethan Haas Was Right" thing isn't connected to the film...it's a promotion for an upcoming table-top RPG (role playing game).

On the other hand, there are two sites (so far) that are linked to the film: www.1-18-08.com and www.slusho.jp. The slusho site's a trip, done up in purposely bad japanese-english translations like an old japanese monster movie.

BTW, the new working title of this film: Slusho! It's an oft-used reference to a fictional drink (think Slurpie) that appears in JJ Abrams' productions.

I think that's all for now. Oh, wait...you're in Manhattan. If you look at the clip, right about the point where they all run into the street, you get a good shot upstreet of the 401 Broadway bulding. Gives you a good idea where they filmed.~BB

In typical Lost-like fashion, who the hell knows what's real and what isn't? I have a feeling I'm not going to believe anything until I see the actual movie.

But thanks very much for all the tips.

You're welcome, Chez.~BB

Looks and sounds like a Godzilla movie. And that was my impression even before hearing anything about slusho.jp.

Seriously, JJ Abrams needs to stop smoking the reefer.

I agree with sleepless mama that it looks like godzilla; imdb.com seems to point in that direction, describing the plot as "Revolving around a monster attack in New York as told from the point of view of a small group of people."

Looks like a prediction about Kish's next visit to Manhattan.

Run, Chez!
