Cloverfield Nominated For Two Saturn Awards

Cloverfield was nominated for two 'Saturn' awards by the The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films.

Cloverfield was nominated for Best Science Fiction Film, and Lizzy Caplan was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

It's not really clear how Cloverfield is even eligible, since it was a 2008 movie, but let's not look a gift horse in the mouth :)

Slusho Laptop Prize

Austin was kind enough to send pictures of the Alienware laptop that he won in the Slusho commercial contest. He received the laptop yesterday, and had this to say: There was absolutely nothing Cloverfield-related included in the package, except the laptop cover (duh) and that everything was registered to Paramount and Bad Robot and stuff.

You can view more of pictures of the prize here.

* Coming soon: expect some catch up posts, part 2 of the Cloverfield Manga, and maybe another podcast.....?

Cloverfield Monster Revealed

Paramount has officially unveiled the Cloverfield monster.

A quick peek of the monster could be seen in a new TV commercial shown during the season 4 premiere of LOST, and now images and HD video of the monster can be seen at Yahoo! Movies. Check out the 1080p HD version of the video for an amazing close up of the monster, seen just before Rob and his friends take cover in the subway.

BTW, does anyone know what this sign in the new Yahoo! video is from? You can see it on the left, above the graffiti, as they are running towards the stairs.
