We've been receiving emails all morning from folks who've discovered that Cloverfield (aka that mysterious J.J. Abrams-produced monster flick) is now shooting scenes on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Of course, this now means my lazy ass will need to stop by tonight after my Superbad screening to see what's really going on, but based on the pics coming in, it looks like folks have dropped a ton of concrete on a car and scattered the street with debris as if something monstrous had just moved through. In the meantime, you can scope out some of the damage here and here, and stay tuned to Cinematical for more updates once I'm able to check out the scene for myself.

Wait, we're not done yet. Since it's a new day, Cloverfield has been given another title. Contrary to me wanting them to just call it The One Where I Punch J.J. Abrams in the Face, some internet MacGyvers are saying that the film might be called Overnight. Apparently, some lawyer who's worked with Abrams is registering names with something -- I dunno, nor do I care. We do know, however, that three teaser posters were released at ComicCon. All of them featured the same image of the Statue of Liberty without a head, but two of them were titled: Monstrous and Ferocious Furious. Could the teasers be leading up to a new poster with the title Overnight? I'm not crazy about the name, but it would make sense since all the action appears to take place, well, overnight. Or, in the middle of the night. And if you listen to the Billy Joel song River of Dreams, it begins with the lyrics: "In the middle of the night, I go walking in my sleep. From the mountains of faith, to the river so deep." Could Billy Joel have something to do with Cloverfield? Is the river he's speaking of the Hudson River? Is Billy Joel the monster? And the plot thickens ...
