Greg Grunberg added to 1-18-08 Cast

Thanks to a Project Cloverfield reader, Casey F., for sending this to me. It looks like Greg Grunberg has been cast for the 1-18-08.com movie.

One movie that Abrams is casting Grunberg in is the buzzerific disaster flick known only by its myriad working titles (i.e., Cloverfield, 1-18-08, Slusho). "It'll probably be something where no one will be able to tell it's me," he said. "As you know, J.J. calls me his good-luck charm, so he's got to put me in there somewhere. I actually went to the set the other night, and it was really exciting and cool. The budget is not astronomical. But they're doing incredible things."

Tie in comic premiering at SDCC?

Adapted from my blog post:

IDW teases two projects for SD Comic Con:

Correction to be had - it appears the pic on the right is for a comic adapation of a story by Cory Doctorow. The proof of this is in the direct-link name of the pic. I might have stayed speculative, because Newsarama doesn't always label things helpfully, but it bears out. (credit to sethlombardi, who left comments in a few places pointing it out; my blog is also carrying this correction) The comic cover on the left is not labelled in any descriptive way, however, but I can't see how it links.

For now, may as well ignore it.

A Clearer look at the "Monsterous" Poster

Chalk another one up to the guys (and gals) at Unfiction.

a nice clear pic of this supposed poster. 
Interesting things about it: 
1) the Paramount logo in the right bottom corner, if this is a fake then whoever made this poster is in trouble for using a tradmarked image and implying they endorse the poster
2) the monster's path of destruction looks to basically be a straight line, no random destruction to other buildings, just what is in its path (to what???)
