I can pretty much guarantee that by us reporting this, it will either be denied or changed – again. We learned exclusively here at Bloody-Disgusting that JJ Abrams’ monster movie was in fact going to be titled “Monstrous”, but was changed the second it hit the web (man we all gossip way too much!)

The user comments all sum up the feeling that Wreck is the lamest title for this movie. One person “Moonset” remarked that it should be called 1-18-08.
