Everyone here remembers Slusho! The magical drink from Japan that turned out to have no real significance in the movie itself. Well apparently as a “goof” JJ Abrams decided to give it a cameo in the new Star Trek movie. Apparently it makes an appearance in the bar scene where Kirk first meets Uhura. Abrams said that it doesn’t have anything to do with anything really (in terms of Star Trek), it was just a fun sort of easter egg for fans of Cloverfield and Alias. So don’t expect to see HUD making a bootleg video of the Enterprise in the background of shots or the Cloverfield monster destroying stuff. Although, if you’ve watched the trailer for Star Trek there is a crazy looking creature that does resemble Clovie…hmmm.

Anyways, if you want to read the entire article/interview with JJ about the Star Trek movie, head on over to MTV.

    Both, obviously! XD Anyway, it seems really strange. I noticed the monster that sorta looked like Clover to. Maybe It is what the monsters originally looked like before coming to earth. Abrams did say that there were both human and ALIEN qualities to it or it’s a coincidence and JJ Abrams just likes to screw with the fans.

    It’s Official: ‘Cloverfield 2’ is Coming!

    According to Variety, Matt Reeves is “in early talks with Paramount” to direct a sequel to this month’s smash Cloverfield. This should come as a surprise to exactly no one, as Cloverfield was made on the super cheap ($25 million) and scored a whopping $46 million in its opening weekend alone. From the way the announcement is worded, it looks like they want Cloverfield II underway ASAP, as soon as Paramount can complete discussions with Reeves, producer J.J. Abrams and writer Drew Goddard, who penned Cloverfield as well as episodes of Lost, Alias, and Buffy, the Vampire Slayer. Reeves has also signed to direct The Invisible Woman, “a Hitchcock-style thriller” he wrote that “probes the mind of a former beauty queen who turns to a life of crime to protect her family.”

    It remains unclear which project will start production first, though the Variety article says there’s a “good chance” it’ll be Cloverfield. No word yet on the plot, but Goddard recently mentioned the possibility of showing you the fateful night of the attack from another cameraman’s perspective. Much to my chagrin, I have yet to see Cloverfield. The night it came out I was assigned to review…Mad Money. You don’t know humiliation until you have to purchase a ticket for a midnight showing of the new Diane Keaton comedy while surrounded by a huge mob of psyched Cloverheads. I’ll check it out this weekend, but for those of you who’ve seen it — are you excited for a sequel? And do you like the idea of watching events from another angle or would you want a whole new adventure?

    Danny: That article is over a year old, there has been no progress on a sequel at this time. Both Matt Reeves and JJ Abrams are off doing other projects at the moment.

    I have a feeling the cloverfield 2 trailer will premier in the star trek previews. If not it will have to appear in the transformers 2 trailer. Also wtf, cloverfield was awesome but its cruel to leave fans on a cliffhanger. They need to follow up a sequel before fan loose interest.
