A headless Statue of Liberty looms over a burning New York City beneath a blanket of green hues. Ominous and beautiful, all at the same time, the Cloverfield poster is bold, mysterious and completely stands on its own. It reminds me of the last shot of the classic Planet of the Apes film where Charlton Heston witnesses the bust of the Statue of Liberty buried on the shore of a beach. That image certainly echoes through my mind whenever I see this poster. Perhaps that’s what got me so excited about the film? The visual connection it had to one of my old favorites? Either way, I saw Cloverfield on opening day because of this poster. And like many others, I hopelessly searched the Web days before hand to try to find a sneak peek of the monster.
