Cloverfield Hotties Top Box Office
Cloverfield, the much-buzzed monster movie from Lost mastermind JJ Abrams, topped box offices this weekend.
The film took in $41 million, according to studio estimates ($10 million more than projected estimates). Cloverfield‘s budget was only $25-$30 million.
If you’ve already seen Cloverfield and didn’t sit through the ridiculous 12-minutes-long credits, you probably missed this. An audio clip was played backwards!
