From brilliant “Lost” producer J.J. Abrams comes the greatest marketing campaign ever (and a monster flick).

The only known plot is that it involves a going away party interrupted by the monster’s attack upon Manhattan. It then turns into absolute chaos as everyone sadly gets separated.

Filmed entirely handheld, it’s sure to be intense, but it may be too much or too shaky for some to handle.

For Abrams fans, it will be epic indeed.

27 Dresses:
You don’t need me to tell you it’s a chick flick. You don’t need me to tell you it’s about a girl and her 27 dresses (for being a bridesmaid 27 times but never having her own wedding).

You do, however, need to know the facts: Fletcher has only one other movie: “Step Up,” which critics called “formulaic” and “clumsy.” Unless Heigl and writer Aline Brosh McKenna did their absolute best to save the film, “27 Dresses” will turn out a standard chick flick.

Cassandra’s Dream:
Although it’s hard to tell from the trailer, “Cassandra’s Dream,” a film about sex, crime and guilt (minus any comedy), is indeed a Woody Allen film.

It tells the story of two brothers in London who have to deal with committing a crime and the rivalry between them that then emerges. Critics say it has a similar darkness as his 2006 film “Match Point” and that Allen is officially losing his touch.

As an Allen fan, I’m always hopefuly.
