1-18-08 Untitled J.J. Abrams Project "Cloverfield" information and videos!

Posted by Jason Triplett

There has been a swirl of mystery around the new J.J. Abrams film, but who wouldn't expect that after the success of Lost and it's internet entities? Like Lost, Abrams is using the internet for viral marketing.

And it's working.

ARG's, or Alternate Reality Games, are a growing way for game developers and film exectutives to get the buzz they are looking for. From Bungie with the Halo related "ilovebees" to Abrams' ingenious Lost ARG, it's evident that this form of advertising is effective.
So I bring you to this film. It doesn't have a name, but we know it is a monster movie. My sources tell me that the monster is original, not someone else's IP. So all you Voltron geeks, I'm sorry. This just ain't it. No Godzilla either.

In fact, my source tells me that the final design of the monster has not yet been decided. Well if I was Abrams, I wouldn't tell anyone, not even the cast, what it looked like unless I wanted it to get leaked out. Let's face it. Stars leak things too.

The origin of the monster is said to be Japan. One of the main characters is wearing a Slusho shirt. Japan is where the Slusho drink is manufactured. Another of the main characters is leaving for a job in Japan. A Slusho job? The history of the Slusho company involves finding some secret ingredient from the deepest parts of the sea.

The official Website. Currently if you go there, you can click and move around 5 or 6 different photos. None of them reveal much, other than a distinct timeline of what happened. This closely follows the footage from the trailer. Also, if you click on the corner of the photos and drag real fast, you can flip the photos over. Some of them have writing. If you leave the official website open for at least 6 minutes, you will hear the monster's roar.
The official Slusho website. Confirmed by Abrams' camp to be connected to the film. Pretty nifty little Flash site with a lot of interesting revelations. Particularly in the "History" section. A quick read-through lends more to the "monster from the sea, upset by Slusho" theory.

Abrams' camp has had to debunk a few faked viral sites claiming to be connected. Aside from the two confirmed official ones, there are these official MySpace pages:

Beth McIntrye - 26, seems to be looking for Mr. Right
Rob Hawkins - "Robbie", 26
Hudson Platt - "Platt", 26, comic book geek and probably the group clown. Sadly I can identify every character in the background pics used for his page.
Lily Ford - 26, very liberal, maybe the loud opinionated character.
Marlena Diamond - 26, not sure what type she is.
Jamie Rascano - 25, the party girl of the group.
JJ Hawkins - 28, guessing the "J" from the flipped pics because the writing is so different from Jamie.

Before we leave you, we'd like to share with you the awesome trailer as well as a photo leaked from the set. The photo comes from http://1-18-08.livejournal.com/. You can visit there for a few more shots of the set.

As always, stay tuned to Rated-M.com for more updates on this and other great stories!


New John Rambo red band trailer!

Posted by Jason Triplett

I know, some of you have probably seen it. However, there are still many who have not had a chance. I think it's important people see the red band trailer for this film, because the green band trailers (if there are any) just wouldn't have the same effect this trailer has.

Oh yeah. This movie is gonna kick ass. Why was I even worried? I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have!

Posted by Jason Triplett

We have finally provided for you what you really want. A trailer for the new Iron Man film. Granted, this is the trailer from the Comic-Con 2007 show less than 2 months ago, but it is the official trailer from what we have heard.
According to the director, the trailer will be shown across all venues on the 10th and 11th of September.

The only possibility is that the trailer shown in 3 days time is merely a teaser, and the one below will be the full theatrical trailer. I guess we will all see for sure in 3 days! At any rate, enjoy!

Machine Buster
Sonic Boom
EVE Saver
Vending Expert

Future Packs:
Life Drain (and upgrades)
Machine Bully
Telekenesis 2
Air Blast 2
Electric Bolt Zero

Special Ecology Plasmid set:
Mutant Synergy Plasmid
Drone Neural Dampening Field Plasmid

Rated-M.com gets a new look!

Posted by Jason Triplett

We've been open for quite some time now, and the look of the site had grown quite stale. So I figured it was time to upgrade the visuals around here. If the site looks different all of a sudden, don't panic. Anyways, we like it, and hope that you do too.

Damage control begins on the Larry/Lana Wachowski controversy!

Posted by Jason Triplett

So it seems this story is more news worthy than many originally thought. In the last few days, this story has exploded across the internet, radio, and television in what has to be described as a wildfire of controversy.

Amoung the venues reporting the story are Fox News, who neglected to even link back to the original source. Now not that I care or anything, but what that also did was blind their readers/viewers from the truth of the article, such as photos and other large respected venues also reporting the same thing.

All Fox News did was talk to Joel Silver, who simply stated that Larry was still a man.

Well, duh! Joel Silver is the main money man behind Speed Racer (as well as all the Wachowski's previous films). He is simply afraid of the backlash this controversy could have on his upcoming children's film. Let's face it, the majority of parents would not take their child to see the film if tey knew it was directed by a transsexual. Church groups of course would have their own protests.

That's not to say the film still wouldn't do ok, assuming it didn't just outright suck of course, but this is certainly not the type of press they were aiming for.

So let's all thank Joel Silver for the expected denial, regardless of all the photos (not just the ones shown on this site), other venues, and eyewitness reports.

And to Fox News, shame on you. As one of the largest news venues in the world, you should know that it is disrespectful and wrong to not link your sources. But unlike you, I link mine. Just like I linked you over a year ago when your same reporter did a story on this very thing, yet today he is "shocked"? Get real. Faux News...
