Well, JJ Abrams made his schedulded appearance at Comic Con today about 1-18-08. He gave us very little info, but here’s a quote from the man himself:
“I want a monster movie, I’ve wanted one for so long. I was in Japan with my son and all he wanted to do is go to toy stores. And we saw all these Godzilla toys, and I thought, we need our own monster, and not King Kong, King Kong’s adorable. I wanted something that was just insane and intense. It’s almost done shooting and I watch dailies and I’m more excited for them than the trailer, which has had an overwhelming response. We have 6 months before this comes out. We’re going to have a whole bunch of things, a whole bunch more.” He said a full trailer, more clips, full posters, and much more will be coming out over the next 6 monts, including the name, which he will NOT reveal today.
“You think we’d call it Monstrous? No…”
A couple of days ago, this image of a movie poster was leaked:
Well, today this official poster was released:
Its the exact same thing, minus the word “Monstrous”. Looks like JJ Abrams was a little upset that his poster got leaked, so he’s just denying that “Monstrous” is the title and will now change it. Or, maybe “Monstrous” is just meant as a tag line for the movie. Or, maybe the word “Monstrous” was just photoshopped onto the original movie poster.
Regardless, the fact remains that we learned very little about the upcoming movie today. I guess we’ll just have to continue to wait for now. Thanks to the guys over at firstshowing.net and their coverage of Comic Con 2007.
