Michael Giacchino's Roar at The Oscars

Michael Giacchino's "Roar" from Cloverfield was played as background music while Will Smith presented the award for Visual Effects. The AMPAS, still stuck in the 90s, does not have video available, but check out this clip from YouTube...

Cloverfield's Tagruato in Star Trek Superbowl Commercial

J.J. Abrams dropped another nod to Cloverfield in the latest Star Trek commercial seen during the Superbowl*. The Tagruato logo can be seen on one of the buildings, while J.J. Abrams' name flashes on the screen.

This is the second Cloverfield / Star Trek crossover. We reported earlier that Cloverfield's Slusho! will also be making an appearance in the movie.

Thanks to Evan, Marcus, and Matthew for emailing me about this!

* That's right, I said Superbowl, and not "The Big Game"! Superbowl. Superbowl. Superbowl. Suck it NFL!
