1-18-08 and JJ Abrams


I have spent more than a little time digging into JJ Abrams’ new work. No one has a title yet, but everyone is referring to it as 1-18-08 for now. Its a teaser that debuted before the new Transformers movie.

It doesn’t show much other than a party, and eerie and ominous noise followed by explosions and people running. It finally ends with the people that were at the party running down into the street and the head of the Statue of Liberty being thrown by some unknown force, crashing into a building then rolling down the street.

If its faily typical JJ Abrams, its going to be surrounded by tons of mystery and will leave alot of room for interpretation. I have read that it is most likely Abrams’ take on the Cthulhu Mythos, by HP Lovecraft. I haven’t personally read it but his works but I have read enough supporting material to know that if you pair the two, you _SHOULD_ get some really great movies out of it. (Lets hope..)

    Oh yes, very much still a geek. Just a more refined and mature geek. The transformers on my desk are known as stress re-leavers, and the blaring techno music in my headphones is more commonly referred to as a concentration enhancer. And its no longer referred to as the ‘happy dance’, it is simply called calisthenics.
