    Bad Robot!
    It’d have to be in one of the same demographics as Transformers, so Godzilla (remake, nostalgia, kids) sounds likely.

    I wonder if it’s ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’, just because ‘Bad Robot’ makes me think of that, but IMDB says it’s a monster attack.

    There’s a bit more on IMDB.

    Neat
    Advertising a movie without telling anyone it’s name – nice idea :-)

    My first thought was the monstor from lost – sorta sounds like it. Maybe it got off the island! But that seems unlikely.

    Slusho history and Gojira
    The Slusho history section refers to the founder
    as ‘Little Whale’ and mysterious ingredients from the deep sea and Gojira is a combination of Gorilla
    and Whale.
    So I’m thinking big monster movie.

      With the way the history describes visiting the ocean and never being heard from again, mysterious dreams, unquenchable thirst, that sort of thing… I’d lean towards something of a more cosmic scale than Gojira. Combined with all the prophetic-sounding stuff on the Ethan Haas site, and the dream stuff in the blog, I’m leaning towards the apocalypse/Cthulu theories. (Keep in mind Cthulu’s connection with the deep ocean, too.)

      Whatever it is, if they stick to the feel they’re building up, between the trailer and the stealth marketing, and they can actually pull it off in the movie, I’m very much looking forward to this.

        Agreed. This looks very promising. The explosion effect in the handheld camera trailer, and for that matter the rest of the effects look pretty nice. The liberty head was obviously cgi when it came to rest, but flying through the air and bouncing off the building it was amazingly realistic.

        This looks fun to me, assuming it doesn’t become another "Snakes on a Plane", where the hype is better than the movie.:)

        I’d love to see C’Thulhu too, but he doesn’t seem like the type to throw the Statue of Liberty’s head around.

        I could see ‘The Incredible Hulk’ doing that, but he doesn’t have a Japan connection. (Well, doesn’t Ultimate Hulk learn Zen there or something?)

          But some of C’Thulhu’s buddies might be persuaded to lend a tentacle to the mayhem …

    Duke Nukem Forever
    The game took so long to create that they decided to make a movie instead. ;)
