Super 8 NOT Connected To Cloverfield In Any Way

Bad news Cloverfield fans... NY Magazine issued a retraction today after speaking directly to J.J. Abrams, confirming that his new movie Super 8 "has nothing whatsoever to do with Cloverfield". It seems a similar viral campaign may be used, but to reiterate, it "will be totally unconnected to Cloverfield".

I don't know, whether it really unconnected to Cloverfield, like Slusho was at the first state of Cloverfield ARE.

Anyways, this movie is also by JJ Abrams, so I cannot wait to begin new viral adventure.

Here are btw. description of the trailer: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/44955 (I just hope, this description isn't a fake)

But Unfiction is again alive - and I'm happy CloverfieldClues also! :)

The trailer starts with a black screen, that says Steven Spielberg is the producer. Then a small written narrative begins that reads something like this. “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'."

People could read letters in this official website (in the super8 objective): "scariestthingieversaw", and they found perhaps the official ARG website!:

And we will have something in 7 days, since the countdown is running. Actually, this countdown is designed as download count. Pretty cool.

Has anyone read the book "Event" by David Golemon? Super strong alien, middle of the desert, government cover up...I'm not bashing because I loved the book and am beyond excited for this movie. I just immediately thought of it after seeing the teaser.

There is only ONE souce allegedly "confirming" that Super 9 is not related to Cloverfield, and apparently JJ. Abrams has lied before, apart of the viral marketing. So time will tell.

We tried our best to stop this from ever happening again.

You have no idea who resides amongst us, or what they have created.

Man should never tamper with unknown elements.

We all make mistakes, but some cannot be repaired, or shoveled under a carpet.

Also there is a countdown timer on the site which ends on May 15th... trailer release date? Who knows...

It's the Mothra to Clover, while this one movie might not be connected, I believe we will later see this creature (I'll call him 8) and Clover clash
