Since the trailer for J.J. Abrams’ mystery project appeared out of nowhere a couple of months ago, I must admit I’ve been eager to find out more. Referred to as Cloverfield or simply 1-18-08 – the film’s planned release date – the trailer had me hooked. As a major fan of Lost, I appreciated the lack of details. I loved not knowing.
Then came announcements of a monster destroying New York City.
Now the official title rumors have begun: first Monstrous and now, following that leak, Wreck.
Call me crazy but has the project suddenly become a whole heap less interesting to anyone else? What sounded like an eery, ominous thriller is beginning to sound more like Godzilla with a title to out-lame Hollow Man.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m well aware that it’s the film that counts, not the title. I just kinda liked Cloverfield – since it means nothing to me, in an intriguing way – and 1-18-08 – since it gives you those 9-11 kind of chills, as though the whole world will stop for a moment in time.
Now, it’s just another film. Another Independence Day or The Day After Tomorrow.
Let’s hope I’m proven wrong!
