J.J. Abrams Talks 1-18-08


Clears the air on funny web business

J.J. Abrams, producer of 1-18-08, or whatever it’s being called this week, wrote in to AICN…

Thanks for your support of our little movie. I can’t wait to talk to you more about it — of course, knowing you, by the time we talk you’ll know more than I will.

Regarding the online stuff you posted: yeah, we’re doing some fun stuff on the web. But, obviously, if the movie doesn’t kick some massive ASS, who gives a rat’s about what’s online? So as you can imagine, we’re focusing mostly on THAT. For what it’s worth, the only site of ours that people have even FOUND is the 1-18-08.com site. The others (like the Ethan Haas sites) have nothing to do with us.

The “Ethan Haas” sites he refers to cropped up last week hot on the heels of the trailer debut. I like the fact that Abrams calls it a “little movie,” but if the trailer is any indication, the end result is going to be anything but little.

So, we’ve got a few new sites to look for, eh? Start digging…
