Great. Now on top of all the mental illness we inherited from Britain, we've got what Japan's got.

And Korea, if this is ripping off the Host (and I'm sensing it is)

I think that's supposed to be Lavos. My theory is that this will be a Chrono Trigger movie. That is my theory.
I think that's supposed to be Mewtwo. My theory is that this will be a Pokemon movie. That is my theory.
I think that's supposed to be Thunderpants. My theory is that this will be the long-awaited North American debut of the beloved British character. That is my theory.

I think that's supposed to be space apes. My theory is that it's not enough to enslave humans on their world, and they have always hated the Statue of Liberty. That is my theory.
I think that is supposed to be The War on Terror. My theory is this will be an exquisite failure at both the level of movie AND social commentary.
I like the mystique they're building up and I actually kinda hope its Cthulhu. But if it is an American remake of The Host? For shame. For deep, deep shame.

This is Americans deciding that finally, we have an equivalent Hiroshima (though we don't), and DESERVE A METAPHORICAL MONSTER MOVIE!!!
I'm gonna build off the best comment-theory I've heard thus far (on Metafilter) and say that the only way this movie will be cool is if ...
ROB IS ULTRAMAN.
America has had giant monster movies before, hoss.
I dunno; I'm not an expert but there might be something to it. Don't most American monsters terrorize small, rural towns, rather than lay waste to urban areas?
I suppose we've always had alien invasion movies for our secret political victimization pornography, though.
OMG HE SAYS "IT'S A LION AND ITS HUGE" THIS MUST BE VOLTRON!!!!!111
Actually, it looks to be either a ripoff or a remake of "The Stuff", about some kind of parasitic creatures that are plumbed from the bottom of the ocean. How do I know this?
A.) Movie rumor websites have revealed that on the set, the creature has been referred to as "the parasite", and all of the grip trucks are disguised as advertising the fake beverage Slusho, and
B.) One of the only two confirmed official websites for the film, www.slusho.jp, gives some ambiguous backstory about Slusho being a failed soft drink company until the new CEO, Ganu Yoshida, discovered a mysterious substance at the bottom of the ocean that is just irresistible!
That is probably the least likely theory yet.
I can't wait to see how the executive producer of Lost and Six Degrees blends reality television with monster movies.
It looks really good on paper but I'm sure this is going to be a total piece of shit.
+1 star for hope.

The writer, Drew Goddard, wrote some solid post-peak episodes of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Therefore...well, therefore nothing. I just want an excuse to go see a monster movie. Go Cloverfield!

This is the best viral marketing campaign ever, and I don't even give a shit what the monster is.
|doc duodenum |
It's name is Cloverfield? That's the dumbest name for a monster ever. All I can picture is a giant lizard wearing a monocle.
Which would automatically five star this were it true.

Saw it tonight. It's Giygas. This is an Earthbound movie.
I thought this was risky and brave. It could have been done better, but took a lot of guts to try at all. It got a lot of hate from, well, the haters.
