If you've been to see "Transformers," you noticed the very curious preview for a film only identified as "from J.J. Abrams."  The preview shows a giant explosion in New York followed by deafening howls from an unidentified creature.  The film is called "Cloverfield" and it revolves around a monster attack in New York.  The film has been under super-heavy secrecy.  Casting involved calls to agents.  No scripts were sent out, and people were merely asked if they wanted to be in a movie.  Eventually a cast, made up mostly of relative unknowns, was put together; it includes Michael Stahl-David ("The Black Donnellys"), Odet Jasmin, Mike Vogel ("Supercross") and Lizzy Kaplan ("The Class").  The film is directed by Matt Reeves, who co-created "Felicity" with Abrams, and is written by Drew Goddard, who has worked with Abrams on "Lost" and "Alias."  It releases January 18, 2008.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
