UPDATE: J.J. Abrams’ 1-18-08 is Monstrous


UPDATE: We’ve been alerted that Paramount Pictures bought the domain name TheMonstrousMovie.com (there’s nothing there yet) on June 8. Will it be part of the promo campaign? Is it the title? We’ll have to wait and see. The original story follows…

A user at unfiction posted the following interesting bit about J.J. Abrams’ secret movie 1-18-08:

I just wanted to let you know about something I saw at a warehouse sale called Frank & Son’s here in Southern California. Basically they sell collectible stuff like cards, comics, toys, etc. It is like a mini convention hall every wed and saturday.

Anyway, I was at a large booth where they sell movie posters. One of the posters there had a snapshot of the statue of liberty overlooking the city of new york. The statue was missing it’s head and at the top in large white letters it said “Monstrous”. The lower right corner had in smaller white letters, 1-18-08.

Fake? I dunno but that is what I saw. I also snapped some cell phone pics and if possible i’ll try to upload them.

Here’s the photo he took, which is very low-quality with a bit clearer version below it. Although many will think the title of the movie is “Monstrous,” we think the text is more for a teaser poster campaign describing the monster in the film.
