After months of our begging, J.J. Abrams has finally agreed to cut a new trailer for his secret monster movie Cloverfield, which will allegedly reveal the film's actual title. The catch? According to ComingSoon.net, said trailer will run before Beowulf, Robert Zemeckis's "digitally enhanced live action" movie based on the Anglo-Saxon epic poem (epically boring poem, really) by the same name. You drive a hard bargain, J.J. Abrams!
