Cloverfield Five Minute Clip Online!

Published 7 years ago by

cloverfieldposterofficial Cloverfield Five Minute Clip Online!Hey everyone, just wanted to put up this clip from the highly anticipated Cloverfield, opening in just over a month on January 18, 2008 (the film was known by this date for a while, 1-18-08), from producer JJ Abrams. He does an introduction to the clip, and I’m almost positive it’s from the set of the new Star Trek Film!

The clip is after the jump. It’s awesome and actually a bit scary (think 9/11).

  1. I will admit I got sick laying in bed trying to watch Thirteen on a TV that was in my line of site, so I wasn’t looking up or down, but dead on. And that made me ill!


  2. You really have nothing good to say about this movie huh, Jim? Lol

  3. The compensation for the handheld look will be the Panavison steadycam and other cool effects that will take your mind off the handheld aspect to begin with.
    Not all handhelds have CGI and Color filtration… Yet.
    Btw Jim are you the actor Jim Carry? :)I just had to ask..?

  4. Zachary-you got me cynically red handed, man.

    Steve-no, i don’t have an unnecessary “r” in my name. haha

  5. Well Jim when you typed, Wowie zowie and Mabel.
    I just had to ask…..:)

  6. If they want to do the whole thing in the handheld, fine. I’m sure they have their reasons. My only issue, and its a small one, is that anytime I’ve known anyone to ever try to run with a handheld, they would either turn it off, or you would be getting shots of people’s feet and the floor.
    No to mention, this guy then trips and falls (maybe due to the fact he’s trying to look at the hand held screen (LOL)), but the camera never misses a step and a guy helps him up, and yup, he’s still got the perfect angle on the camera.
    Oy vey!

  7. In the trailers, Rob asks Hud why the hell does he still have it on. And Hud Replys as such “We got to let them know what happen(s)(ed)” So I can see why they would leave it on. No one else is going to shoot it, I would if I was them. Cause you know the government will try to cover up as much as possible.

  8. Anyone catch the new (?) commercial? I saw it on Conan O’Brien (the bearded one)’s show. The tag line is, “Their only hope…is each other,” and shows a new perspective of the Libertyhead hitting the street.

    >>And please don’t tell me the whole movie is going to be shot in hand-cam…like watching 2 hours of someones bad home videos.<

    Big hurdles for Cloverfield.

    1. Run time is a paltry 90 minutes. This, for something I’ve been teased with for over a year.

    2. Re: Hand-cam. If there’s a monster, I want quality effects, aerial shots, and high resolution, not a shaky-fuzzy-grainy-static-obstructed silhouette between buildings.

    3. The reveal of the monster is so crucial, and my expectations so high. This better be spectactular.

    4. The monster is such a secret–can someone “spoil” the whole experience, by blurting out that “It’s a giant turnip!” or whatever?

  10. nice preview, but there is a full video, in net

  11. I took up whole movie theatre. I look smaller than
    I am. People no live. hehe…fun. Good. Me gorgeous.
    Feel sorta bad for kill. Not really. Too short. New
    view. People look so small. Bigger on screen. My butt hurt.
