Cloverfield trailer

JJ Abrams is at it again: he's released a few minutes of the Cloverfield movie. There's not much more info at first glance than has been seen previously, but it's still cool.

Some things I learned from watching this:

1) Only young attractive people live in NYC.

2) Sound travels at the speed of light. The big explosion is heard at the same time it's seen, and the same thing happens again a bit later in the clip.

One interesting note: Abrams is definitely playing off of the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. It's hard not to with something like this. But the most chilling footage I saw from NYC that day was from a group of people hiding out in a store, and in the video you see the debris cloud go by, from left to right. Sound familiar?
