Cloverefield producer J.J. ABRAMS has dismissed reports the monster movie exploits the trauma suffered by New Yorkers in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the city.
Cloverfield follows the adventures of five people attempting to escape from a giant lizard who wreaks havoc in Manhattan – but Abrams insists filmgoers are wrong to take aim at his movie.
The filmmaker claims there are plenty of recent blockbusters that have used an apocalyptic New York as a backdrop.
Abrams said: “Anyone who is upset with Cloverfield must have had the same reaction to the recent Spider-Man films or I Am Legend or the King Kong remake.”
