You can see that JJ Abrams is wearing an INFOCOM t-shirt. You would think he would be wearing a Slusho t-shirt, but he's too cool for that :)
FYI, INFOCOM was the company that created the ZORK games in the early '80s. Maybe this is a CLUE! Will we see a Cloverfield text-adventure game?
Here is a transcript of the speech that I made:
This is going to be really, really quick,
I just want to say, I want a monster movie.
I want a great monster movie. I wanted a monster movie for so long.
and, I was in Japan over a year ago with my son, who's eight.
and all he wanted to do was go to toy stores, so I know he's my son.
and we went to all these stores and there were still all these Gozillas everywhere
and whats better than Godzilla?
And I thought, we need out own monster, like we need a monster movie
And I thought not like King Kong. I love King Kong. King Kong is adorable.
And Godzilla is a charming monster. We love Godzilla
But I wanted something that was just insane, and intense.
And so we started making this movie,
and we're making it for you right now, and it's almost done shooting.
And I watch dailies, and I'm more excited about the movie itself than the trailer,
which has gotten an amazing response. I can't thank you enough for that
I would say that we have six months before this movie comes out, it's a long time
And so, in the coming months, you're going to get a whole bunch of things:
- You're going to get the real trailer
- You're going to get the real poster
- You're going to get to see the footage from the movie
- And You'll get the real title
Oh COME ON! Please! You think we'd call it "Monsterous"? No.
We have something for you, which is that we have these posters that are made that are really cool. A series of four posters that everyones is going to get, and I hope you like those too.
I can not wait for January. You guys are the greatest. Thank you so much.
