Invisible or Clover 2?

01.31.2008
This won't come as a surprise: despite the second-week sinker that most horror/genre movies take, CLOVERFIELD was a stomping success when compared to its relatively meager budget. And thus, a sequel is already officially being discussed.

Director Matt Reeves, who is not JJ Abrams, is in talks with Paramount to deliver another (or the same one again?) massive metropolis-demolishing beast, probably complete with similar ground-level queasy-cam and endless declarations of "Ohmygod!", but with even more utterly useless and nonsensical viral marketing.

While those specifics are being hammered out, Reeves already has a deal to shoot his own script for THE INVISIBLE WOMAN, described as a Hitchcockian thriller about an ex-beauty queen who becomes a criminal to protect her loved ones. It's safe to assume that transparency factors in somehow [Ed. note: the title is just a metaphor, no one is actually invisible in the film.], though the movie isn't mentioned as a remake of the 1940 version, nor will it apparently involve Jessica Alba in really tight costumes. Sad face.

If the creature feature follow-up falls together quickly, Reeves will tackle that monster before the see-through babe.

Extra Tidbit: Abrams and company are likely already working on the viral campaign for CLOVERFIELD 2. In fact, you could be watching, reading, breathing or eating it right now. Beware.

"Useless and nonsensical" viral marketing...sorry but isn't that the definition of viral marketing? How does painting "Ha ha ha" across the sky help a movie? And yet some people wet themselves over the idea. Viral marketing is all just fun and anyone who thought Cloverfield's viral marketing was "useless" should be reminded that it was made for 20 M, which it recouped in the first weekend.

You scared the shit out me. I thought for a moment that the guy that directed the horrible "Cloverfield" was going to adapt "Invisible Monster"...
So he's making "Invisible Woman"? I can live with that

Dear God...

Cloverfield was easily one of the best monster films of all-time (yes, I just said that) and a sequel would only serve to tarnish it. Is the news of a sequel really surprising, though?

Not really considering the following:

- Made bank.
- Made bank.
- Made bank.

Woo-hoo, bring on another "Book of Shadows"...just wake me when the damn thing is over.

Seriously, are you guys forgetting to research news nowadays? I mean ive been noticing this more and more. No, the invisible women has NOTHING to do with actual invisibility; Reeves said so in a recent interview, that was linked to on this very site.

Joblo.com could itself be a viral campaign!!. JJ knew in 1998 that Cloverfield 1 would be a major success in 2008 and proceeded to create a website about movie news - under the false Alias "berge garabedian" aka (JoBlo). So when the sequel hit, The site would completely transform into the biggest internet propaganda machine of all time.

Thus using even more useless and nonsensical viral marketing and leading us into a completly different direction about what the movie could be about. In the

Thus using even more useless and nonsensical viral marketing and leading us into a completly different direction about what the movie could be about. In the process giving us the impersonation that a giant unicorn with NPH ontop was actually destroying the city.

I'm waiting for this day to come.
