Cloverfield Trailer

This has been the talk of the internet since Transformers opened in theaters July 3rd and this trailer mysteriously played in front of it. After 390 comments on the article discussing what it is, what it could be, and tearing every little detail of the trailer apart, no one has still officially figured it out. All we know is that it's being referred to as Cloverfield and will hit theaters on 1-18-08. However, here's your chance to give it a full-on high definition whirl and see if you can figure more out, or just be shocked and amazed at it over and over again.

You can also watch the teaser trailer in High Definition at Apple

The mysterious secret project has had plenty of discussion with a few sparse details released in two articles on FS.net: the first here and the second here. J.J. Abrams is producing, but Matt Reeves is directing and Drew Goddard ("Alias", "Lost") is writing. The film will hit theaters next January 18th, 2008.

  • Ladiesman217
    Haha, its already on youtube....won't be soon before its taken down though. Paramount acts pretty quickly. http://youtube.com/watch?v=YzfNQkwwT3c

    How about this. Multiple meteors hit New York carrying parasites. That would explain the explosions and the earthquake.
  • Jessie
    It's the smoke monster from LOST :)
  • yossarian
    i really think it is cthulu. it would be real interesting. it won't be taken down anymore i think. clearly this looks like paramount has finally released it. this is the real thing because it has been fixed up a little
  • rigo
    my guess... monster invades new york, survival of the human race...maybe godzilla decided to make a comeback

    I don't know if anyone noticed this yet....a friend of mine looked at the source code for evanhaaswasright.com In the bottom of the code is this paragraph ...war came, no longer from the elemental nor from the star's rain of fire. The world was again remade, and the glow was as the coming of the sun upon the Earth. The children of the gods were again too few, scattered and divided and among them walked the ancients and those whose thoughts were not as to the towers and the marvels, but to the End and the destruction of the Earth and to the fires from which nothing could escape.
  • Mark
    How long do you guys think they can market this movie like this? I mean eventually they're going to have to give us a name and a plot synopsis right? Movies make money by getting LOTS of people interested. And the few of us who will blog this and research this will NOT turn a profit. So how long before the veil of mystery is lifted. Personally, I hope they wait as long as possible.
  • Anteros
    This version of the trailer should forever put to rest the idea that he says, "It's a lion" Thank God. I'm sorry, but this Voltron thing has been embarrassing from the get go and it has to die a quiet death. Someone asked why would they show a monster trailer before Transformers instead of a Voltron trailer. Let me explain. Studios do that all the time. They play their own trailers in front of their own movies whether the two are related or not. If, and a very BIG IF, the Ethanhaaswasright website is related to this trailer then there's very little doubt that it's Cthulhu. Too many hints along those lines are at that web site. No one has proved that it's all related however. It's all hearsay. If it's not related, however, then we are left open-ended with a very original monster movie. I hope for either one. It would be cool.
  • Anteros
    And for you fanboys out there wetting your pants over a Voltron movie, relax... it's coming. It's just not this one. Same thing goes for Evangelion. And Godzilla. Hold onto your hats... or whatever you prefer.
  • groovy
    Its the new austin powers movie. Remember you heard it here first.
  • Anteros
    And having said that, I see that there already is a movie called "Cthulu" released recently, though according to reviews it has nothing to do with the Old One. The official site is at http://www.cthulhuthemovie.com/ Apparently, according to some reviews at IMDB it's a Gay movie. No, really... a Gay movie. See for yourself. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0478126/usercomments It's supposed to be a movie of Lovecraft's "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" but apparently it's not really.
  • Anteros
    "Here likewise a rambling letter to the editor of a paper in South America, where a fanatic deduces a dire future from visions he has seen." Word for word from "The Call of Cthulhu" by H.P. Lovecraft Ethan Haas?
  • tspice
    i thinks its godzilla!
  • http://ethanhaasthoughts.blogspot.com/ Unlived
    Leviathin? Cthulhu? Gojira? What do you think???? http://ethanhaasthoughts.blogspot.com/
  • Aftab Bali
    Did he say "I saw it, it's alive, it's huge" to me it sounded like "I saw it, It's a lion, it's huge"
  • Anteros
    OMG, a giant lion is causing huge explosions in NYC and throwing the head of the Statue Of Liberty around like papier mache!! Arrrghh!! Sheesh... keep the under 12's out of the forum already!
  • Ox
    I have to admit...the Cthulhu theorists are starting to sound pretty dead on. If you read up on it...Cthulhu is always associated with controlling people's dreams and apocolyptic type destruction. I think Abrams is probably tying the Cthulhu in with the end of the world. If this is indeed the case...is this movie really going to work? I have my doubts...but the trailer just seems to good to let us all down.
  • Wynner3
    From J.J. Abrams little tidbit on Ain't it Cool News.com, this is the official website. To me it's a little weird. More to come I guess. just two pictures that you can move around, so far. http://www.1-18-08.com/
  • ChipNoir
    Follow some research. Giant Monster called The Parasite. Known about this movie for ages.
  • Researcher
  • CrackV
    Chip Noir, if by ages you mean days, then yeah, but if not, screw you, nobody outside production knew about it at all until the trailer. For the real info on this movie, go to the other forum. Check out all the sites that have popped up. http://www.ethanhaaswasright.com http://www.ethanhaaswaswrong.com http://www.parasitemovie.com http://www.tossinggames.com http://www.cloverfield.com and so on also, on IMDB theres a plant going by the name of "My_Name_Is_Van" who has told allot about the movie. Also, on the its a lion its huge thing, it may be alive, but i distinctly hear an N there. Funny thing i have noticed on all forums, nobody ever considers that he may have said "I saw it, its ALIEN, its huge". Kinda stretching it, but it may work.
  • CrackV
    Wow, then again, for the first time ever I actualy heard "alive".

    AICN just reported (from Abrams himself) that the Ethan Haas sites have nothing to do with this movie. Here is what JJ Abrams said: quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Sir, Thanks for your support of our little movie. I can't wait to talk to you more about it -- of course, knowing you, by the time we talk you'll know more than I will. Regarding the online stuff you posted: yeah, we're doing some fun stuff on the web. But, obviously, if the movie doesn't kick some massive ASS, who gives a rat's about what's online? So as you can imagine, we're focusing mostly on THAT. For what it's worth, the only site of ours that people have even FOUND is the 1-18-08.com site. The others (like the Ethan Haas sites) have nothing to do with us. Stay cool the rest of the summer -- and thanks per usual for AICN! JJ ......
  • anonymous
    I knew it, thats why i didnt go to that craptastic website.
  • http://ethanhaasthoughts.blogspot.com/ Unlived
    Well guess what...JJ has nothing to do with http://ethanhaasthoughts.blogspot.com/ either..... and that's a good thing because it has to do with you!
  • nick
    about the comment i posted #30 ill quote "the only site of ours that people have even FOUND is the 1-18-08.com site" im guessing this is saying there other sites but no one has found them yet???

  • http://www.paynebyname.com Payne by name
    How thoroughly refreshing, though we've always known that it made sense, to have a trailer than actually excites and teases and doesn't try to tell the whole story and concept right off the bat. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that if you want to generate some buzz then create a little intrigue. Unfortunately too many studio execs haven't the courage to be daring and creative and thus when one eventually does it's treated with a 'wow this is amazing, who would have thought that would have worked'. How cool would it be if the makers of this film had the courage to leave this as the only pre-screening material available so that when entering the cinema you knew virtually nothing about the journey that you might be embarking on. The film looks exciting and they've done enough to guarantee my bum on the seat come it's launch.
  • http://Geeklabel.com Flynn
    I can only hope that JJ is doing some sort of Cthulu Movie. Whatever it is I will be there opening day cause that trailer made me forget about Transformers for about 30 seconds.

  • Bald
    I smell a lot of stupid in here. If you don't think this advertising will work, look up alternate reality games (ARGs) sometimes. And if it's a lion, then, Jesus Christ, get back in the car.
  • Anteros
    I've been hooked on this for a solid week now but I 'm losing interest. Not enough info. I've had enough. Back to my life.
  • http://www.myspace.com/misterdarkness Spoiler
    It's called "Call of Cthulu." It's not a remake of "The Host."
  • Lucas
    Jessie you are totally wrong. You will never be right.
  • Mike
    It's the movie TRENT REZNOR was thinking about while he was writing the music for NIN's "Year Zero" album.
  • spartan
    OK just another crazy idea......HALO the movie........think about it maybe, not sure, but wouldn't that be wild?
  • I eat spam
    WOuldn't it be crazy if it was a new Chuck Norris flick. Think about it. The Barber, not paying attention, messes the lines on Chuck's beard up causing him to go balistic and killing the barber with the fist that was concealed under the beard. He then summens all his karate energy to grow to a gigantic size so that he may reign terror down upon the tiny earthlings of biblical proportions. He starts in NYC decapitating the head of Lady Liberty. I would watch that.
  • Bryguy

    JJ Abrams himself has already stated that ethan haas has nothing to do with this movie. Ethan haas is about a video game. Hear me out...it's either Pokemon (yes, you read that correctly) or Cthulhu. Please read on... Visit Slusho.com and click the 4th link from the left, takes you to the feedback email address Satoshi@slusho.jp. So, a quick search on this Satoshi person reveals this Wiki info Satoshi Tajiri is a Japanese electronic game designer and the creator of Pocket Monsters, better known as Pokémon. The creator of Pokemon! Tell me this is not happening. :) Ok, you probably think I'm crazy now, but I'm reading more about the Pokemon creator, and guess what, he worked at Nintendo, on Pokemon, for 6 years. 6! "Slusho! You can't drink just six." Thoughts anyone else? Now, read the history page on slusho.com. There's reference to “many towns and villages on Honshu". Well, you guessed it, Satoshi was born in Machida which is located on Honshu! Apparently there's a Digimon character whose design is based on Cthulhu and named after Dagon. The character's English name is “Dragomon." Most Digimon of all levels reside in the Digital World (sometimes called “DigiWorld" for short), a parallel universe created from data inside the Earth's electronic communication networks. However, Digimon are sometimes capable of traveling to Earth - or as it is called in DigiWorld, the Real World. Courtesy of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ultimate_Digimon_(Part_1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ultimate_Digimon_(Part_1)#Dragomon - this is the pokemon character designed after Cthulhu, his type is Sea Animal and his level is ultimate (perfect). I read on another blog that the monster was a sea monster, can anyone else confirm that report? Oh, one more Pokemon coincidence, the kids on slusho.com (boy & girl = the two Pokemon kids) are under water. The Pokemon monster Dragomon is a sea animal! Dragomon is a Sea Animal Digimon. His Japanese name is Dagomon as he was named after Dagon of Lovecraft literature known as the Cthulhu Mythos, and appearance is based on Cthulhu of the mythos. Dragomon is a “Wicked God" referred to as “The Sinful Priest of the Ocean Floor". He is thought to be born from a computer virus that infected the computers of ships and such, disrupting direction and course. When he takes a life, he holds the juzu (prayer beads) on his neck and seemingly mourns. After all of the links I've found, I'm 100% convinced it's either Pokemon or Cthulhu (hybrid of both) related. Probably Cthulhu, and these Pokemon clues are just a way of confirming that it's Cthulhu. Then again, stranger things have happened.

    i am not good at spoting things at all so a couple ideas for you guys with good eyes yet crappy equipment, watch the video without sound and then listen to it without video, it helps a little....for me at least

    Ok... I have watched and watched and listened and listened. and I have a question The initial shake or earthquake or whatever it is. At that moment there is a loud sound that to me sounds like a voice before the moan. Like its saying a name or something. I don't know.. Someone with better ears then me please check that part out. its at about 1:09.
  • Joshua
    While my favorite contender for the monster star in this mystery trailer is Cthulhu, has anyone considered the location difficulty with that? Cthulhu sleeps in sunken R'lyeh, which is in the South Pacific...pretty sure the ol' Statue of Liberty is on the Atlantic coast. Just a thought...
  • Craig
    I know JJ Abrams likes Anagrams but I haven't come up with this one yet (if it even is one). Cloverfield The best I have is Evil/Vile/Veil Cold Rev(olution?)
  • Montezille
    You Guys!! I listened to this 32 times exactly (call me obssesed if you must) and when you here it the first time it says "I saw it, Its a lion! Its huge!" I have no doubt the only reason people here "its alive" is becasue when you hear it more your ear and nerves get weary to the sound so the first is always mostly right, trust me he said lion.
  • Montezille
    Oh and the movie has a couple code names: Cloverfield, The Parasite and 1-18-08. No one knows which of these are the real name if any of them even are. But there are no faces in the fire or that girls hair, your just getting a little creative.
  • http://thelegendofaphrodious.myfreeforum.org/index.php Montezille
    And I think the Lion might breathe fire or something, but im almost certainly sure that the man said lion.
  • http://thelegendofaphrodious.myfreeforum.org/index.php Montezille
    And maybe the lion got infected by some parasites that made him huge and breathe fire?
  • nick
    u guys are stupid

    I noticed the above comment from http://www.thegossiprag.com ... It looks like they have setup a 'Cloverfield Watch' for tracking the latest information on the movie. Pretty cool
  • Whitey
    Ok, here are my two cents and its all I'm going to give... I took the work CLOVERFIELD and put it into a few anagram generators. The most interesting combination I came up with was COLD FIRE LEV. Now before you say LEV is not a word, I took that and punched it into some definition sites. LEV basically translates into... LION! So run with that... or not.
  • Tythandril
    First off, the guy definitely says "I saw it! It's Alive! Its HUGE!" Also there is a very good film on you tube with an analyzation about the trailer; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=im7wWMVzIyg pretty interesting. I'll throw in my twenty cents, I think its probably a movie about either: The end of the world, Gamera remake (Thats right), or Cthulhu. These are just my oppinions but one thing that strikes me odd about Gamera from the japanese films is he could breath a massive fire ball and he also fed off fire so its a possibility that if godzilla can show up in new york, so could Gamera
  • nick
    u can scratch off "The end of the world" and wat you think it might be because we already know its a monster movie jj told us so idk y every one thinks its an end of the world movie

    Ok.... Friend of mine was checking out the slusho.jp site. Apparently the name of the the girl on the sites father is the name of a character in a Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster movie. Coincidence?
  • Blake
    Seems like Godzilla to me. At :54 some guy says, "What kind of animal sounds like that?" Then there is the fireball which could be explained by the fact that Godzilla breathes fire. The roar doesn't sound like Godzilla, but they could have changed it.
  • Shadow
    Pfff I Dunno I just say its another Good ass Monster Movie. I'm just gonna wait it out... I mean we know "its a lion its huge" And "sounds like a animal" I say wait it out and see... I really dont see the big deal...:) my opinion

  • Cifty Fent
    hey guys, i have read all the comments and actually first i thought it is godzilla too, but i cant believe they make a new reremake of it , remember i think 8 years ago there was the last remake in cinemas and it was very good. I like godzilla but do you think the creator of lost will make a movie with godzilla? All the other clues are very fine of course , but think different. the guys who made this movie will keep it secret for sure and what would be better if we take all the people out there in this fanmovie world and make them believe its a monster movie !! i think 50 % of all think its godzilla or this other monster .... forget the name ^^. i have a few ideas and i didnt make any searches for information after i saw this amazing trailer here are my few ideas what it could be (i know some of them are to stupid but ....) 1. halo 2.Final Fantasy 3. I am legend (new movie with will smith ^^) 4.AVP2!!!!!!!!!!! I HOPE IT IS 5.Alien 5 (without ripley) 6.Pokemon movie (i hope not uaaaarrrghh) 7.Any Marvel movie or something 8.Transformers 2 (that would be lol) 9.some invaders movie 10. hellboy 2 and now guys my first idea after godzilla, and also my favorite hope ... Dragonball or its something new we all never will find out till they tell us ^^ at last excuse for my bad english iam from germany and eglisch is not my favorite ^^
  • Cifty Fent
    it could be a lion if the guy in the movie think he see one?! but it also could be another animal that looks like a lion or really the new enemy for godzilla that looks like a lion. But the first time i have see and hear the trailer i understand alive and not lion. possible is everything ^^
  • Cifty Fent
    So guys my brain has going to get crazy but i think i got the best idea what it is i wonder why they show it before the transformers movie, i read about it a few minutes ago and actually could it really be a second transformers movie? Anybody knows the Beast Wars saga? could be really a lion cause there the transformers transformed into animals tell me if iam wrong with that cya
  • BAM
    YOUR SO FUCKIN STUPID IT AINT FUCKIN HALO ITS NOT I AM LEGEND IF U SAW TRANSFORMERS THEY HAVE A TRAILER FOR THAT MOVIE BEFORE IT DUMBASS IT AINT NO STUPID FUCKIN POKEMON U IDIOT AND ITS NO FUCKIN DRAGONBALLZ WTF ITS NOT FINAL FANTASY AND ITS NOT AVP2 THEY ALREADY HAVE A TITLE FOR IT ITS ALIENS VS PREDITOR DUMB FUCK AND IT AINT TRANSFORMERS 2 OR GAY FUCKIN HELLBOY AND FOR THE FUCKKN 2394348 TIME ITS NOT NO FUCKIN GODZILLA SO SHUT THE FUCK UP U GODZILLA FAN FAGGOTS YES CLIFTY FENT FAGGOT UR WRONG IS SHOWN BEFORE TRANSFORMERS CUZ ITS ON PARAMOUNT PICTURES JUST LIEK TRANSFORMERS DUMBASS

    Has anyone else been on the official website lately (www.1-18-08.com), because I've just been on and there's a new photograph with the other two photographs. I can't make it out, but looks like a person running, and two women with their hands covering their mouths. Haven't a clue what that flash of blinding light is. Also one more thing, the numbers on the bottom right of each photograph (there's the date 01/18/08 and then some more numbers which look like the times of the day). Anyway they seem to go up, the first picture of the party is 12:01A, the second picture with the two girls scared shitless is 12:36A and the third one (the new picture) is 12:48A, maybe we'll get see some more photographs in the coming days, and if my theory is right, it should shed some more light on the events taking place as the day goes on (in the movie of course), if you get my drift.
  • bam
    cool "anonymous" thx for pointing out the obvius we know in the bottom right its the date a time were not fuckin stupid. ya the pic is two grls running one guy to the far right running and theres another guy in the middle standing there if u look at ur screen from an angle u can see him good. and no hes not a clue every seems to think that every little thing is a clue. the light is from idk who knows maybe a buling idk streetlights
  • John
    If you think he's saying "It's a lion", you're deaf. If you listen, you will definitely hear him enunciate the "v" sound of the word "alive". Besides, wouldn't that give away too much if someone said "IT'S A LION!!OMGIFWEFEEDHIMHELLLOVEUSANDWECANSELLHIMTOAZOO!!!11". Point being, that would be stupid. I doubt the creature will be anything we've ever seen before. That would be the best thing and would make it more original. Can you imagine this movie being anything close to decent if the creature was a gigantic lion? Rawr.
  • JON
    I KNOW WHAT IT IS GODZILLA
  • Manpata
    re-arange the numbers 1-18-08 to 80-81-1 then to 80811 and search it on Google, there's an article about toxic waste being dumbed into the New York bay, maybe that's where "The Parasite" came from? P.S. sorry if anyone already posted this lol

    Pause the Hi def trailer at 1:34, there is a shape in the smoke, I am not going to speculate, but tell what everyone thinks.
  • Sinner
    OK, they say alive & not lion, so it's probably not Voltron. Plus I heard a different company is making Voltron & not Paramount. So Bam, is it Call of Cthulu or what? Is that the completely original monster movie? I suppose it could be b/c I've never heard of it.
  • Sinner
    I'm leaning towards Gamera b/c Godzilla 3D is coming out this summer sometime & it's only 40 minutes long. However, that roar did sound vaguely like Gojiras, didn't it?

    ok, the licsense plate on the black SUV outside the building is ABZ 3293, now i think thats Robs car because its parked closest to the door but i dont know for sure, if you go to http://www.abz3293.com a person is looking for the driver of the car and he needs something from the car "a family heirloom", now, Rob is leaving for Japan, maybe the person looking for Rob has something to do with the monster but i dont know for sure again, now when i say the person looking for Rob i mean someone in the movie or the movie people making it are just giving us a hint, plain and simple Rob is the main character and a person needs something very special from him but is having trouble getting it so he gets this monster on him, or maybe its just a stupid licsence plate and the website is a hoax lol, i dont know, k bye
  • Manpata
    another idea, what if the movie is actually called 1-18-08?
  • Sinner
    Somebody already suggested that. The question is, what threw that Liberty head. That's want we want to know. Who cares what it's called. Another thing, how did I get on this site yapping with ya'll? I'm supposed to be working. Where is Bam?
  • Sinner
    So, what's up Manpata? Are we the only nerds left? What's really goin on?
  • Sinner
    Where the hell did Bam go? He's either full of it or he knows something we don't. I want to see if he can type anything without dropping the F bomb. Bam, I think it might be Gamera. What's up?
  • Tom
    Ok a couple more tidbits, If you go here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anastasius_Balkin_Zeno you get a possible clue, and here is another interesting page? http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/politics.html
  • Sinner
    That was interesting Tom. I'm still completely in the dark but that was interesting. Those 3 pics are just creepy though; the way you can move them around like that.
  • Tom
    Oh and another find tonight, (can you tell I am hooked) On the Slusho site with all the writing about science and growing into a giant whale. The family lived on Honshu, plug Honshu and Godzilla into a search engine and you will find that More than a few Godzilla movies are centered in Honshu? The puzzle is coming together
  • Manpata
    believe me Sinner i dont do this ussually i just found the teaser really mysterious i dunno
  • Red
    Ok, found something interesting... If you go to the Slusho-O website and read its "history" it says the company is based out of Honshu (in Japan). If you go to google and type in: godzilla honshu, a bunch of different websites pop up. If you read the lines describing the sites posted most of them are about the different godzilla movies made and they're all based out of Honshu... Basically meaning that's where he attacked his enemies each movie. Just something interesting that helps the whole godzilla theory. Oh and btw if you think this movie is about a lion you're a moron.
  • Red
    With what Tom said about the giant whale thing. If you look up what godzilla means it's a cross between two japanese words. One meaning gorilla (meaning strength) and another word that means whale (referring to size).
  • Sinner
    Well gotta jet. Manpata, Tom, it's been a pleasure. Later Red. I thing it could be Gamera but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Godzilla. Let's be nerds again tomorrow. Later guys. GOJIRA!!
  • Red
    Didn't know if this already posted, can't seem to find it. Found a new website. There are 2 very interesting things and 2 not so interesting things on it. The 2 not so interesting ones are the cloverfield website and the official cloverfield trailer site. The 2 more interesting things are The countdown on the page counting down to August 1 (another trailer perhaps?), and the pair of red eyes staring at you. For the people who are totally against the Godzilla idea, he has red eyes... Still TOTALLY sure it's not Godzilla?

  • GetShorties
    Ok this took a few hours of snooping around, but I have reasons to believe (though this would not work well with slusho unless he did that for all his Bad Robot advertising) that this may be a Revelations type movie as well, and here's why: I searched and searched thru the Mystery Street thing but to no avail. Then someone here posted something about revelations 18:8 so I went for a read. I found this there: 'And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!' Link Which led me to 1:18 'I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.' While browsing I found this one too: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY (as in Mystery St???), BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (Now if you have read Revelations you know that Babylon is 'the great city that falls' which is supposed to be the world's business/sin hub...not NYC u say? lol) NOW - I went back and searched ABZ 3293, tried everything. I tried history of the date 3/2/1993 and even 3/2/1893, and even 3293 BC and found this: Scroll down to ABZ it is an abbreviation that has to to with a man named Rykle Borger who coincidentally wrote a book and was a leading researcher in guess what? BABYLONIAN LINGUAL DECIPHERING!!!(Assyriologist) Link His book was called 'Assyrisch-babylonische Zeichenliste' (ABZ) Guess when it was friggin last published? '63... Anyone notice that it was 63 degrees in the news flash in the trailer? 63 degrees in NYC in Jan at midnight??? I think not. At this point, I nearly shat myself, and began hunting deep into the world of translation of babylon scripts. I found out that AKM can also be Aleph-Kaph-Mem, lost link. Aleph-kaph-mem when googled led me to the definition 'Angel'... Upon more searching for the 3293 part I found this: Estimated Death Year of Adam (from Genesis and of Adam and Eve fame) to be 3293 BC... Link HMMMMMMMMM......... Now, throw in the fact that we have been bombarded with the number 6 (mark of the beast)... Extra Facts: -The Beast is synonomous with the Abyss (ABZ = Abyss also? prolly not but hey Ive been up a few extra hours now so sorry) -People claim that someone could have drawn in the 'devilish' looking silhouette in the girls' hair, very true - but the hair thing is overdone so moving on... -I have to sleep. I'm sure theres more links I forgot to add but this is long enough as it is. Good Luck

    ok bam all the other movies i told ya were only ideas!!! oK!! not more also if u read my post u can see i alsothink it could be something different that nobodys knows at this time. What about this smoke monster ? i heard about it from lost?
  • bam
    ya all the lost fans are like "OMFG SMOKE MONSTER AHHHDAFJSDFGL" but me on the other hand think the smoke monster is the dumbest monster ever. ok people seriously think about it a monster that is black smoke?? that is the stupidest idea of a monster ever id rather the film be pokemon or godzilla then some black smoke that some how and lift things up?? how can u kill smoke anyway smoke isn't even scary at all? so no i don't think its the smoke monster i actually think the smoke monster is lame as fuck. what do i think it is? ive said it before its a ORIGINAL NEW MONSTER thats what i think it is Abrams even said it like when this whole thing started. and red http://www.parasitemovie.com or w/e it is is fake and sinner i dont think its Cthulu cuz there is already a Cthulu movie made and if we were to remake it i doubt we woudl remake before it even came out any where the site is http://www.cthulhuthemovie.com/
  • Ed
    When you listen to the trailer on a sucky sound system it does sound like that guy is saying "Its a Lion!" but when you listen to it on a GOOD sound system or just put some headphones on you can clearly make out the 'v' at the end of "Its Alive!" Trust me. I thought he said lion at first also because I listened to it on my friends regular laptop speakers but then when I got home to MY laptop thats hooked up to a separate BOSS sound system the word "ALIVE" came out loud and clear. Now when I first thought it was "lion" I figured the movie was Voltron. But JJ is not directing that movie. Thats what made me go back and listen very closely to what that guy said and low and behold it turned out to NOT be "lion." Besides, if everyone knew it was Lion already there wouldnt be any need for all this build up. I dont think the producers would be THAT brain dead to let the cat out of the bag at this point. This is an ORIGINAL monster movie. Im a Godzilla fanboy as much as the next person but Godzilla this movie is not...and it better not be because that would be a HUGE let down. I dont mind seeing another Godzilla movie come out but I dont want THIS movie to be that. All this build up and then it turns out to only be Godzilla? Please. Get some imagination people. So having said that i think its safe to say that we can rule Godzilla out so PLEASE lets not speak of him again on this thread. As a matter of fact I think its also safe to say that if this movie IS anything we've all seen before after all this secrecy, suspense, and build up then JJ, your head will be served on a platter.

    IT'S LOST!!! It has to be, Abrams is a creative genius! I believe it will connect to the show somehow, one thing I always go back to is the pilot EP of lost when Rose is heard in the background mentioning something familiar about the sound of what they thought might have been a monster at first, then someone asked her where she was from with her response being New York, and obviously the 'others' have 'powers' off the island and may be the cause or at least know something about what is happening in that crazy trailer, I think 'monster' may be a little strong of a word for whatever that sound is just as it was when lost first came out. I'm still not sure whether the island is from the future or is just a 'Noah's Ark' in progress for those who survive the world's near end, but this movie just may be that 'near end' and explaining a lot just before we go into the 4th season of Lost. I'm even thinking perhaps some sort of water world where land mass is rare, the island may not even be an island but more so what's left of the Oregon coast range, sounds crazy but so is that show, and that trailer!!!

    I never saw any lost episodes here in germany also u in amerika have lightyears before us watching that shit haha. My new theorie is that this could be a movie about Evangelion, anybody seen this manga? Its amazing i think this could be the first impact destroying the whole world. Evangelion is a manga about world destroying through a big Impact, Angels are sending to earth from somewhere to destroy the rest of all but the humans build robots or something against them to defeat them with human pilots help very interesting if they will make a movie of it and the story would be so hugh !!! lol
  • Tom
    OK Lets look at this thing Step by step. First the Trailer Surprise party for Rob who is going off to Japan, Thunderous roar, (No explosion) They all run to the roof to see what they can see. A huge Fireball preceded by another roar. Everyone runs downstairs into the street and the masses are running past in terror "I saw it Its huge and Its alive" There is more destruction and the Statue of Liberty's head comes saoring through the air bouncing off buildings and cars and lands in the street. Now some analysis: The Roar is first, almost a growling roar, like something huge making its presence felt. There has not been and explosion yet and when they are watching the news the only thing brought up is the "roaring Sound"! Ok so whatever this thing is it is alive. (Not a Lion) Listened about a hundred times, you can definately here the V, also have seen the trailer in the Theaters 3 times now and its very clear there. So a couple things can now be deduced, 1. This thing was already on the earth, nothing from Space, No sightings of it entering the atmosphere, no impact on the earth etc. ( I think that would have led the news broadcast instead of a "Roaring sound". and 2. This thing came out of the water, Liberty Island sits in the middle of the Hudson River, so whatever this thing is again, had to run across the Statue and destroy it prior to coming into Manhattan. Mosty likely a primative predator who mistook the figure as a challenge to its territory. As for the clues, The Slusho shirt and the mysterious history of the company on its website, DEFINATE clue. Rob's oing to Japan, Clue, Sushi, Clue. I dont think every thing in the trailer is a clue, its part of a movie, so to pack more than a few clues into the scene you are releasing as the Teaser Just isnt Logical, Are there more, I do think so, the ABZ 3293 came up with a few thought provocing sites, The Wiki about this Zeno Character who was killed for Profisizing the end of the world on 1-18-08 is more then coincidental, I dont know enough about these things to figure out when that page was originally posted to Wiki, my bet, in the last month or so, certainly not more than the beginning of the year. But every thing in the room is not a clue, we all need to look harder and be more selective. The fact that nothing came from outer Space leaves out the Voltron thought, sorry for that camp, its just my opinion though. As for a Lost movie, as passionate as the fans are, I cant see there being enough of a following to support a feature film, sorry there too. This Chutlu? whatever that is, (and I think that sais a lot) remember everyone, to get a movie funded the studio has to believe the story is recognizable enough to draw people into the Theaters, Lovecraft was a great writer, But the demo for this flick, will definately be the 20-35 range, Not enough of those people even knwo who lovecraft is. Gamera, see all the above. A cult Anime flick, see above again. As for Revelation, That is a distinctly catholic belief, and one thing in movies just doesnt sell, cramming your beliefs down somoeone else throats, see Battleship Earth. So all this leads me to some final thoughts. First we know there is more out there, just keep looking the pieces will come together. And Second this is sometihng both JJ and the Studio think they can sell, Either its a totally new Creature flick which would be fine by me, seeing something original is refreshing, or its a Godzilla flick, I know Godzilla 3D is in production, but that is a 40 minute thing, that is going to see little theater time, Also if you research the franchise you will find that in 04 Universal lost the rights to the sequel, and Emmerich was no longer associated with the Project, Toho the onwer of the rights, and the Japanese fans wer none too happy with the 98 flick, Broderick a JOKE, giant Iguana? it only took minor thoughts from the spirit of the character, I can see Toho, hiring a Franchise fantatic, which Abrams is supposed to be to make a true Godzilla flick, true to the history of the franchise to get people interested in it again, (SEE batman begins) a real movie compared to the live action cartoons that were the Shadow of the comic. Oh and last thing, if you dont have it go buy a copy of the original Japanese version, It is Darker and plays up the apocolypse and end of the world talk WAY more than the Raymond Burr version. It was a movie that pulled no punches like the american pelease did. So everyone keep looking and post what you find.

    C'mon people, for the hundreth time, ITS NOT GODZILLA! Its NOT Pokimon. Its NOT Lost. Its not Voltron. Its not Cthulu because there is already a movie coming out very soon about it called....you guessed it... CTHULU! Its also not Dragonball Z or Power Rangers (Those choices would be lame, lame, LAME!) There is also NOT ANY LIONS INVOLVED! You people are like that guinney pig on the Simpsons that shocks himself and then repeatedly keeps shocking himself while trying to get the food KNOWING that the food dispenser is electrified. Wake up people! This movie is not ANY of the above. It is an origional movie with a BRAND NEW monster so we might as well all sit back and wait until 1/18/08 to get the definate answer.
  • http://ethanhaasthoughts.blogspot.com/ Unlived
    Do you think some of the theories that have been posted are getting a little too complicated?

    pertaining to the guy on the street asking "Has anyone seen Jensen?" Jeff Jensen conducted an interview with Abrams and his 'Lost’ gang AND Stephen King titled “When Stephen King Met The 'LOST’ Boys". http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,1562722,00.html “But suddenly, the No. 1 question stopped being ”What is the Monster?” and went to being ”What do the Numbers mean?” This isn't to say that the Numbers don't mean anything. We just had no idea it had this potential to get totally out of control."

    just an observation... In the trailer...When they are going to the rooftop just before the explosion... you can see Rob.. and behind him... you can see the empire state building lighted green .... I was in NYC in St. PAtricks day and it was lighted green .. and i thikn that's the only day they do that! And if they only turn green the building that day .. how come it's all green if it's January-18th??!

    oh and those fireballs/comets or whatever they are look a lot like the one that landed on Hurley's fast food place that the island was probably responsible for, and the more I listen to the roar of the 'monster' the more it sounds like the movie version of what we hear from the 'monster' on lost, in which we never really saw for the longest time (and still don't really) yet it still appeared to be huge and capable of trashing on huge trees or anything in it's path. I'm thinkin the people at the going away party may just be a glimpse of real life people going through the world's end and dead before this movie even gets started, except maybe the 'main dude' (lol), but not sure, even he may be a quickie as the film moves on to something much bigger...
  • http://www.myspace.com/decksplace decker
    k this one is crazy, lol, but maybe Locke is the one that died in the future flashes of Jack and is related to Jacob (John Jacob) and so angry over being forced off the island that once into his afterdeath he lays down his rage onto the rest of the world leaving it clear of his island and those lucky few who still roam it, with Jack and them somehow getting back to it, yep this one is nuts!

  • Subjugate
    Its alive Its a lion I think the guy who says it is full of it, he just matches the roar with his first thought. Lets look at where the guy is, he is running and they find him just outside the party, he could of been in the party for all we know. Now if he is telling facts how did he manage to find out what it was, they are on the other side of the explosions and it is night time, so how did this guy manage to get from what is probably the harbor (statue of liberty head) all the way to the party area. seems like a bad choice in evacuation routes if you ask me, not to mention if he is not BSing then why does the news have such inaccurate information.
  • http://www.myspace.com/decksplace decker
    yeah just the fact that that dude is even there and sayin what he is sayin is reason to believe Abrams is tryin to do what he does best, mislead you, whether it relates or not he did the exact same thing with lost, the people there were refering to the so called 'monster' has a gargantuan and alive even though they never seen it, just appeared so by it's sound and destruction of it's path, just like the trailer... such a top secret film and no title is brilliant but ohhhhh man, Abrams HAS to deliver now! if it turned out to be a monster esp Godzilla, it would be very disappointing to most, not sayin it would suck cause it'd still look entertaining but not as nearly as mysterious which Abrams is all about, so I'm not worried... http://www.ethanhaaswasright.com http://www.myspace.com/decksplace

    first of all the guy doesnt say its a lion he says alive we have been over this sooooo many times go watch the HD trailer u can hear it better he wasnt in the party he was obviusly some where past the building from where the party is u can tell cuz when the all walk out side he is just walking past the building he was obviusly some where where he could see the monster ignor ethan haas was right

    I just had a thought, if you look at this map you will see the distance the head had to travel to get to any area surrounding the statue. Maybe it's chucking peices of the statue at things. The statues arm may have caused the first explosion by hitting a gas tanker port depo. Have any of you seen the movie Deep Rising would that sea monster be a parasite? http://www.greatbuildings.com/cgi-bin/building_map.cgi?Statue_of_Liberty
  • This Is I
    01-18-08 USA (trailer title) 1-18-08 USA (promotional title) Clover USA (fake working title) Cloverfield USA (fake working title) Slusho USA (fake working title) That's the IMDB database. So you can rule out Cloverfield or Slusho as the title. But both of them definitely have something to do with the movie, probably. Who was Godzilla's nemesis? Has anyone thought about that? And the Statue of Liberty's head was NOT thrown. Look closely, and you'll see it was hit by one of the fireballs, I guess you would call them.

    another possible LOST tie in is the fact the movie is coming out 01/18/08 and if you rearage that a little you get 108 108 now if thats not a LOST tie in i dont know what is

    of course even if the film doesn't have anything to do with lost, Abrams will still get his kick out of makin us all think so, but I can't stop thinkin more and more that it is indeed tied one way or another!
  • lolwut
    Oh hey guys, I was just watching the trailer again and I noticed something around 1:03 marker. If you look closely, you'll see that you're all a bunch of fuck wits who have nothing better to do in your pathetic lives. Maybe it's a completely original monster movie. Have you considered the fact that MAYBE the director doesn't want to something that's been done before? Godzilla and Cthulhu are both at the bottom of the list, Cthulhu being above Godzilla. For fuck's sake, just wait for more content to come out. You're all over evaluating what's available. And Bam is probably the most worthless faggot to ever visit the internet. Thanks for nothing, kiddo. Kill yourself.
  • Andrew
    Its is not Godzilla. Why. The roar is different from Godzilla's Even in the crappy American movie they still keep the roar the same from the jap movies from the 50's through the 70's. When i first saw this i thought it might be Evangelion. But if it is then the american movie buissness has just killed another movie based on an anime/ book/ T.V. series.

    This movie comes out on 1-18-08 right? Inverse the number and take out the dashes. You get 80811. Google that and you get a document about toxic waste being dumped in New York. This is not Godzilla, that's too played out. It's not Cthulu, that was already done very recently at a film festival. There's a book written by someone about a planet that orbits Earth every 1,000 years or something, and the people making Transformers also were thinking about this a while back, and this preview is only at the Transformers movie...

    After reading everything, I've come to two conclusions: 1.) While there are some signs that point to both the Cthulhu and Godzilla theories, they're probably actually doing something original. Honestly, I'd be disappointed if it were a Godzilla movie. I'd be somewhat enthusiastic if it were a decent Cthulhu movie, but I doubt it really is. Until we see more videos or get more websites, I'm going to guess it's something unique. 2.) Bam is really the worst poster on this board and should probably shut the fuck up.
  • seraph
    I'm not positive, but I think when the debris is hitting the building and the footage is all broken apart, there's a subtle message. If you slow it down and listen beyond the people screaming, you'll hear: "Ru-" probably Run "Oh my go-" probably Oh my god "Shu-" probably Shut "The fu-" probably The fuck "Up Ba-" probably Up Bam So we have five sequences, all with small fragments saying "Run... Oh my god... Shut... The fuck.... Up Bam..." I believe it's a sign that Bam should stop posting and take his anger out on his dick, preferably by removing it with a butter knife.
  • Cifty Fent
    seraph i like your style very well and for me u have so right with that hahahah very nice ;-) but guys i found something interresting, a man that was on the set of that movie? perhaps http://www.9news.com/life/entertainment/article.aspx?storyid=73653 this could be agreat clue if this is real! the man at that article said its a new monster in this movie no sequel or something and u will find a lot of clues on that slusho page but its hard i think, also he said u should listen to the roar more and this line where the guy said: 'I saw it ' Its alive' Its huge' For me this sound not like ALIVE!!! how about : 'I saw it' ITS A LIGHT' Its huge?
  • Cifty Fent
    For those who won't take the link? here the report for new information the other half i have past cause we all know the other shit ;-) 9NEWS Entertainment Reporter Kirk Montgomery learned exclusively on Friday from a secret source, who is on the set of the film every day, that it is not a sequel or a remake (which precludes King Kong or Godzilla). It is not Voltron or "Lost"-related. The source told Kirk the entire film will be presented through a handheld video camera, as in the style of the trailer. All of the actors involved had not seen scripts when they signed on for the project and are under strict legal gag-orders not to discuss any aspect of the film. The source says 50 percent of the $30 million budget for the film is devoted to special effects. The official Web site is http://www.1-18-08.com, but the source tells Kirk that apparently a Japanese-style Web site, http://www.slusho.jp, has lots of clues yet undiscovered by the rabid fans who have been scouring the Internet for hints. The source told Kirk the biggest clue of the trailer is in the line: "I saw it, it's alive, it's huge." The source also says the sound the "creature" makes is another big clue. He says the creature is an organic, living thing. The film is being released by Paramount, but they also are not saying anything. Yet.

    Hi it's me again (I would like to be known as "anonymous"), but I've just seen something crazy, this is of course something to do with this movie. I'll start from the beginning, as I'm REAllY BIG film critic I have a lot of movie websites that I go on to looking for sweet juicy information on really cool movies coming out, such as this movie. I've just been on one of my favourite websites (www.countingdown.com), and found a post relating to this movie with two videos posted by two different members on there, both these videos were from youtube which I'm sure you've all heard of. And I think I literally (well I did) PUKED all over my computer screen with disgust regarding the 1st video, and PISSED myself with laughter regarding the 2nd video because it was just so god damn funny here are the links to the videos, copy & paste into your browser so you can watch them (if you want to). Trailer 1 - http://youtube.com/watch?v=qTpYGJzqcUU Trailer 2 - http://youtube.com/watch?v=filMlR3JYVk Personally if I knew what both of these ideos were before watching them, I wouldn't bother watching the first one as I DO NOT BELEIVE THAT THIS IS WHAT IT IS, IT'S A LOAD OF FUCKING BULLSHIT!!! ...Sorry just had to get that out of my system, if you want to know what I mean watch it, but don't hold me responsible for ruining your own computer screen by puking up last nights dinner. The second I'd just watch for a laugh or if made PHYSICALLY SICK by the first video, and need cheering up again I'd watch this straight after. But I wouldn't beleive what this guy hopes it to be either. If the links don't work when you paste them into your browser tell me and I'll repost them. Oh yes, and just tell me what you think the videos are like, I mean there is now PISSING way it could be that... I wouldn't even bother picking up a poster of the damn film never mind going to see it at the cinema. There' just no way...

    Ok guys, back again... It is absolutely not Lost! Sorry to all you Lost fans out there but that would be ridiculously stupid since no one I know watched past the first season of Lose (I watched the first season, it got old, sorry). Secondly, this Cthulu/ bible theory is totally wrong. Only a handful of people really know about Cthulu and religious films only draw in so many people because religion causes huge issues in society between different groups. As for the outer space ideas, uhm... NO! If it was from outer space we would have been given some clue about that by now, we have not found or seen anything that would suggest it's from ANOTHER planet. IT'S NOT A FREAKING LION SO IF YOU STILL THINK THAT YOU'RE A COMPLETE MORON. I'm sticking with the Godzilla idea... Support? 1. "I saw it. It's alive. It's huge." Not too many giant monsters that are FROM planet earth. 2. He's going to Japan and they're eating sushi. 3. It very obviously came in from the Hudson River where the Statue of Liberty is located. 4. It roars (I don't freaking care if it doesn't sound like the roar from the previous movies it sounds pretty damn similiar to me.) 5. If you go to the Slusho website the "secret ingredient" supposedly came from the bottom of the ocean. 6. The history of Slusho states it could turn a small fish into a big whale... The word godzilla dervies from the japanese words gorilla and WHALE. 7. Slusho began in Honshu, Japan where ALL the Japanese Godzilla movies were set. There's alot more I've found but those are some pretty obvious clues. Btw. If this is Pokemon (which it's definately now) I'll kill myself.

    Simple question, Why would ANYONE! make a movie about a little known Anime story, that only rabid Anime fans love. Like the studio said, hey we want to lose a few million quick lets make a movie that only a few nerds will understand and love!!
  • Anonymous
    Hi, me again I forgot to tell you there are loads more interesting and weird videos on the links I gave you ( including a report on CNBC and a Trailer Audio Spectroanalysis whatever the HELL that is), just look to the right of the video you are already playing and you'll see a whole list of videos and just click on it, and it should play. P.S. Sometimes all the videos don't show up on the list so you just have to keep clicking on different ones until you get a different video on the list.

    ok, I'm new to JJ Abrams, but to me it seems like this won't be as much a remake of something else as something new and original. I would love if it was some goofy mistranslation of revelation prophecy, and that may be the case. however, it doesn't look like it. anyhow, so far these are the ONLY decent ideas I've heard so far: it's a movie about Cthulu. It's a movie about old mythical gods waging war on our modern landscape. as for... pokemon/digimon - I think that anyone with as much grit as mr Abrams has show will know not to start a viral marketing craze and then cop out with "it's.........POKEMON!!!." I think that he probably knows better, and honestly has more to spend his time on. also, if it were a pokemon movie, why would people in the trailer be referring to the creature making the sound as an "animal" ("what kind of animal sounds like that???") in the pokemon anime they never referred to them as animals, only pokemon. as for digimon... give me a break. no one likes digimon. also, to the person who said that satoshi clearly pointed to pokemon.... satoshi is just a japanese name. like Rick is an american name. Godzilla - loosely possible, but remember that the REAL godzilla movies took place in tokyo, and I don't think abrams would be lame enough to make the "let's put godzilla in new york" mistake twice. however, if he does, I will attempt to remove my foot from my mouth and go about my business. Voltron - no. sorry. whether the guy says "alive" or "lion", it rules it out. voltron wouldn't strike you as alive, you'd say "holy hell! a robot!" and... oh hell, I think a couple of the voltron robots were lions. shit. let's just hope that's not the case. peace
  • Ed
    JESUS CHRIST PEOPLE! IT IS NOT FUCKING GODZILLA! There is no way anyone would want to see a Godzilla movie without his trademark roar. Even when they revamped Godzilla's image in the late 1990's they still kept the trademark roar. Why are you people so Goddamned hard headed? After all this crap if it DOES turn out to be Godzilla I will persnally knock on JJ's door and punch him right in the face!
  • decker
    ED, agreed! I myself would like a good godzilla movie but if something that's building this excitment already and to have no name it just has to deliver much more then a godzilla or any monster flick, the only possibility for that is if the movie is a blair witch monster movie in which the idea is not all that bad but still def not worthy of this sort of hype! and RED, if you did watch and understand more of lost then you would know that all the 'support' you listed is exactly the kind of stuff Abrams likes to fool ya with, lead ya another direction, he WANTS people to lean toward it being godzilla or something of it's kind, otherwise he wouldn't shock ya like he plans to, lost or not lost, his goal is DEF to mystify us not just up until we finally get to see it, but while we see it, and probably even after we see it. and he is good enough to make this movie just as easy to understand and enjoy for those who have never even seen lost, which of course they all will afterward if it does indeed connect!
  • This Is I
    Someone explain to me where this 'it came from the Hudson River' crap came from....yes, I know the Statue of Liberty is located on an island bordered by the Hudson River on all sides, but the monster doesn't physically grab the Statue of Liberty's head to throw it, it's hit by one of those fireball type of shits..whatever you want to call them. Anyways, I also don't seem to remember Godzilla being able to create one big fireball explosion death combo, that looks something like the damn supernova or a meteor. I'm not trying to rule him out, because honestly, I don't give a fuck if it is him or not. It's not going to be Evangelion, sorry. There isn't enough of an anime following to dedicate a Hollywood movie budget to. Come on, how the fuck is it going to be chultu or whatever the fuck its called? Didn't that monster originate in South America? I'd find it fuckin hilarious that in 2008, no one in the world could detect a giant sea creature making his way from fuckin Brazil or something all the way to New York City, when we can detect when a damn fish crosses over into American waters. It's clear whatever it is...has the power to: 1. Generate roars of fury that border a mother who found your Playboys. 2. Create a monstrous fireball type of dome thing, because that was NOT just an explosion. 3. Make millions of people run for their lives, scared to death. Hell, maybe it's a dragon form of Rosie O'Donnell.....

    I thought it might have something to do with Lost, which would be very convenient about a month before the new season starts and all of this hunting for clues reminds me so much of the Lost Experience. I'm not going to get crazed and argue that I'm right, but the actual trailer reminds me of The Watchmen, which has been said over and over again to be partial inspiration for Lost. With a lot of talk being generated about a Watchmen movie being made, I think Abrams might want to pre-emptively strike with his own (very quickly made) movie to save his vision for the overall Lost universe, which could be diminished somewhat if The Watchmen comes out before the final season, which it should. I'm not going to go into what about the trailer is similar to The Watchmen for those who have never read it, but I can see how this movie could be a Lost-related movie to get the event out there before it shows up in The Watchmen movie first. Sorry if that is rambling…
  • Cifty Fent
    GOD DAM anybody read any other posts from the beginning? then talk about ya ideas READ THIS!!!!! 9NEWS Entertainment Reporter Kirk Montgomery learned exclusively on Friday from a secret source, who is on the set of the film every day, that it is not a sequel or a remake (which precludes King Kong or Godzilla). It is not Voltron or “Lost"-related. The source told Kirk the entire film will be presented through a handheld video camera, as in the style of the trailer. All of the actors involved had not seen scripts when they signed on for the project and are under strict legal gag-orders not to discuss any aspect of the film. The source says 50 percent of the $30 million budget for the film is devoted to special effects. The official Web site is http://www.1-18-08.com, but the source tells Kirk that apparently a Japanese-style Web site, http://www.slusho.jp, has lots of clues yet undiscovered by the rabid fans who have been scouring the Internet for hints. The source told Kirk the biggest clue of the trailer is in the line: “I saw it, it's alive, it's huge." The source also says the sound the “creature" makes is another big clue. He says the creature is an organic, living thing. The film is being released by Paramount, but they also are not saying anything. Yet. SO ITS NOT ANY GODZILLA OR SOMETHING LOST OR other SHIT >>>>>>>>>>>>>>IT IS A NEW MONSTER IN A NEW FUCKING CRAZY GIANT DESTROYING ARMAGEDDON LIKE PEOPLE SCREAMING TO HELL FUCKING MOVIE NOTHING MORE . Abrams wants to play tricks on us so everyone speak abou what this could be , NO ONE knows what this movie is about causeNO ONE see anything like this before . And if I'am Wrong I#am sorry for this post but to 99,999999% its something new Peace
  • Matt
    Wow...Cifty Fent got a little excited there. I did read the other posts, but to quote your own original post about the article "but guys i found something interresting, a man that was on the set of that movie? perhaps http://www.9news.com/life/entertainment/article.aspx?storyid=73653 this could be agreat clue if this is real!" So even you weren't sure if the article was real or not when you posted it, so why should we have to take it as fact? Like I said before, I'm not whole-heartedly sold on my theory but thought it was a possibility. I could be wrong, but as far as I know this is the first feature film released by Bad Robot. Not that it matters, none of us will know what it is about until more information is released. Until then, we are all wrong.
  • bam
    THANK YOU CLIFTY FENT now hopefllys all thos stupid ppl will shut up now
  • Cifty Fent
    ok you right matt but its hard for me to explain something correct cause my englisch is very bad hehe its just facts but i trust them ,also a lot of other guys roll on more information to another the fever gets me hahahahah i think this film is about a sea monster, created by rob which u see in the trailer he works for slusho, one of his friends got a slush shirt maybe a present? or he works there 2? Everybody fell in panic but rob looks different in some situations at this movie, i think he knows whats going on , they make a parasite at the slusho factory and test it on animals or humans maybe its very complicated for me to explain my theory i hope u can follow me a bit, so this monster follow all the way to new york from japan cause he is searching for rob? and it all gets outta control and he doesnt want that happen. And what about that thing? sounds like a whale or something also guys try to take clues out from this 3 things 1.slusho site 2.the roar 3.rob i think this is the right way to search otherwise abrams also wants to trick us even more this all is so complicated but its fun anyway
  • xXSergioXx
    Belive it or not! Its GEARS OF WAR!!!
  • Matt
    Sounds plausible, Cifty. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't seem that they would be able to deliver all of these aspects if the story is told from the point of view of (3?) camcorders. Or if it does, I don't think it could be done well. Plus, it seems like a read somewhere that it is going to be really short, like one hour long, so that is a lot to put into such a short span of time effectively. We'll see what else we get over the next few months...
  • Matt
    If you're right, Sergio, that would have to be the quickest turnaround ever. The game hasn't even been out for a year!
  • Cifty Fent
    matt do you mean the movie only is 1 hour long? i dont understand what u want to say so okay its all with that point of view but what about if the tease is the beginning from the movie and after that a new camera comes out and tells the story from the whole beginning and after the fall of the head from the liberty statue the film is over? would sucks but could be possible lol
  • Cifty Fent
    search for more clues there http://www.slushozoom.com/index.htm
  • Matt
    Cifty, ignore what I said earlier about it being only an hour long. I remember seeing it somewhere, but cannot remember where and could not find it again, so for now am not sure if it was a legitimate site where I saw it (thought it was IMDB, but if it was it's no longer there). You could be right about the tease, but as far as I understand it the whole movie is supposed to be from the camcorder perspective.

  • Lulu
    I have watched this trailer over and over again for a while today and I am stumped. At first I thought of Godzilla, as the rest of the world did. But I am pretty sure Sony owns the rights to Godzilla. After reviewing the trailer a few times I have some other speculuation as to what is going on. First, is it possible that this creature came from underground? Because everything starts shaking like an earthquake and when all the people are running to the balcony one guy even says something like "everything was shaking, like tremors or something". Also, when you hear the next roar there is not the big earthquake shake before.. This indicates to me that it's not strictly the size of the beast that made the shaking.. It was perhaps the "enterance" of the beast that caused the shaking. Personally, I think we are going to see something we have never seen before. The explosion is absolutely insane and looks like a bomb went off, only it's followed by what appears to be some sort of fireball or meteor. So this creature either has one hell of a fireball or it has come equipped with some nukes or something.. lol.. Whatever it is I can't wait to see it! :)
  • brya ng
    on the website 1-18-08.com there is a new picture
  • decker
    LULU, good point, if it does come from underground that is even more reason to think of it as the lost 'monster' which even us diehard lost fans really don't know all that much about, so who is to say what other things it is capable of, those fireballs look a lot like the one that was in the hurley episode of lost earlier this year and the more and more I hear it's 'roar', the more it sounds like the one on lost... and PEOPLE, please remember/know that Abrams is genius enough to consider all the things we as fans will think it to be which went into his thought process toward that trailer, he is also known to throw out false leads which I beleive is what he's done with the camcorder issue, it's not a bad idea at all but not worthy of a untitled movie with this much hype, it may or may not be lost, but as one person siad on here recently, it WILL be something like we've NEVER seen before...
  • http://www.chris-white.net Chris White
    The more I read about this the more I feel like it could be Evangelion is about the only other thing I can think of that has this many complex clues leader all over the place (except maybe JJ's other work). It fits very well with all the Biblical and Babylonian references and the noise as well as the destruction seems fitting. The thing that throws it off for me is first, that it's New York and second that there seems to be a lot of cult references around the web for it (valid or not). There are two reasons I think they could be making this kind of big budget movie from an anime. First, if JJ get's behind a movie then Hollywood will fund it, most of the movies out there are more about the big names anyway, and Evangelion seems like something Abram's could get into. Second, there has been some talk of a big budget Evangelion film, it got shut down as I recall, but not before Weta did a fair bit of concept art work on it. If Weta would get involved in a little anime project I can see it having drive, regardless if this version and the earlier work are or are not related. However, there are some other really good ideas going around here as well, Lovecraft seems fitting, as do some of the other clues. Before you call me a Evangelion fan boy, I'm not, I didn't particularly like Evangelion and I rather dislike anime now, just seems like it's a possibility.
  • http://www.chris-white.net Chris White
    Okay, let me revise that, I still think this feels most like Evangelion, but I expect it's something completely new. I doubt it's a remake or a sequel.

    You have to look at the picture on http://www.1-18-08 and you will see the time of day in which these pictures were taken. Think about it. On 1-18-08 at 12:01 everything is normal and people are partying right? But later on at 12:30 and beyond thats when things get crazy. So obviously the day 1-18-08 is more important than just the day its released/time it takes place. Its giving you a hint on that 1-18 was a chosen day of attack. And religion is the one key place where there is planned heavenly attacks. Google "romans 1:18" and you will find a website that takes you to a page with "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness," written on it. What is this movie about? The Apocalypse.
  • decker
    good one DAVE, and yet again, more evidence towards it bein a lost movie, religion is behind all sorts of stuff foin on with lost, not just from the others but whatever fate is controling that mysteries island, and the Apocalypse is exactly what I believe the island is for, an island rather then a boat, it's noah's ark!
  • jeremy
    Im Possitive its the LOST movie now. I just read that the shows creators have refrenced a graphic novel called "The Watchmen" as a inspration for the show. anyways whats intresting about the watchmen is that the story consists of a group scientist/superheros that on a remote hidden island created a psyhic monster to distroy new york city and convince the world that it was under attack by an alien force and unite all the countries and people in the world to fight against this common threat. Thus saving humanity from itself..... Now to me and anyother LOST fan this sounds pretty familiar 1. the show takes place on a remote hidden island 2. a group of scientists called the dharma initiative went to "the island" to try and save the world. 3. theres what aperars to be a psychic monster on the island 4. the show has 6 famous numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42 if you add those up you get 108... and if you rearange the date of the movie from 01/18/08 you get 108 108 5. heres a video and audio sample from the smoke monster from LOST http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niY7faCx5cI&search=Lost sounds the same as the monster laying wreck to new york 6. the line in the trailer "what animal makes that noise?" was said in the very first episode of LOST when they hear the smoke monster for the first time 8. and finaly at 1:25 on the trailer when it goes to the panaramic street view pause it and you can clearly see a pillar of black smoke I rest my case....this is for sure the fabled LOST movie!
  • EmceeNamul
    I thought it might have been something dubbed over on YouTube, but now that I've heard the official trailer, it sounds a lot more clear. Listen to the background at about 00:38. You hear a women say "The Myth" before the room goes dark and you hear the roar. I might just be over listening. But yeah, let me know what you guys think. :D
  • http://www.myspace.com/sinthetic_empire Sinthetic
    I dont know if anyone has caught this yet but the second time i seen the trailer (online) I seen this monster in the trailer and had to rewind it a dozen times to get a good shot unfortunately theres no real good one but if you manage to pause the trailer just as it turns to 1:25 you will see it down the street in the distance the HUGE dark figure which appears to have some kind of horns..
  • decker

    I've tried pausing the trailer to see what is claimed to be the monster in the distance, but probably due to my crappy monitor I can't see anything. Could someone post a screenshot?

    why do you all think its a LOST movie that would be so dumb if it was if u guys would bother READING THE NEW POST they have quotes from abrams saying its NEW AND ORIGINAL
  • Cifty Fent
    never saw any lost episodes but saw this smoke monster and it sounds like the roar in the trailer plus u sea it in the trailer between the buildings and also all u lost fans could be right but its not the lost movie only it's a movie after the lost series or before to explain what happens nice movie i will watch it hope its good and not only for people who watched the lost series
  • Matt
    Like I've mentioned before, I personally think it will have something to do with Lost, but if I am right I think it will be indirectly related. It won't have or mention any of the characters or events on the TV show. In other words, I think if it is related it won't refer to Lost in anyway, but Lost may refer to it. I don't know how many of you have read the Dark Tower series by Stephen King, but the way he connected to his other books is how I feel this would be done. The movie and Lost, if related, will stand independently of one another and you won't be lost (no pun intended) for not watching both, but if you do you will have a better understanding of the entire story. Of course that is all speculation, but my current theory. And I think just because JJ Abrams said it was not Lost-related doesn't completely rule that out. It could be that he didn't want to alienate a potential audience by saying, if you don't watch Lost you won't understand this movie or it could be that he knows that Lost has suffered from some viewer drop-off that could also effect the money the movie could get. Or it could be completely unrelated as he said. Basically, I think it can be related without being directly related.
  • Merl
    I don't believe it will have to do with Lost, although there may be clues we can rely on from Lost and other JJ works. Along the lines of the 108 thing, if you add up the numbers on the television screen during the news report at about 48 seconds...those being channel 1, the time 12:32 and 63 degrees...you get 108. Maybe coincidence, maybe absolutely nothing.
  • Anonymous
    I've been comparing the sound of the Lost black smoke monster with the trailer, and at the very end of the trailer at about 01:40 (just after the Statue of Liberty's head is thrown on the floor), it's quite hard to hear but you can distinctively hear that trademark noise it makes, like a sort of growl. You can hear it best at 01:42 (just before it says "FROM PRPODCER J.J. ABRAMS"). I've officially made my mind up, I'm 90% sure it's something to do with Lost (even if it's indirectly related like Matt said). So It's not Godzilla, cthulu, Pokemon, Digimon, Power Rangers or a huge freakin' lion, or anything else anybody thinks up!!! I rest my case.

Theres a demon in the top of their hair in the middle. Its hard to see (at first) but its there. If the pic is right side up, the demon is facing up and right. Second, the pic of the guy pooring the shot down robs mouth... Guy pooring is wearing a slusho shirt. Girl on the far right has a distinct horn on her head, and looks crazy. Havnt found anything on the white picture. Also, watch the trailer in slow mo, on the roof, when the stuff starts flying, is says ZOOM ACE clearly to the right of the door, when he falls through (only for a split second) Anyways, all over slusho.jp they says SLUSHO ZOOOM. DOnt know what it means, but its a clear connection Also, i never was into anime, but i checked on the neo genisis evagelon, and alot of stuff DOES match up. The SOL head, in the first episode of NGE one of the mechs heads gets ripped off and thrown. The sounds of the mech kinda match up with the sound from the trailer. Also If you check the time stamps when you see the news, the time stamps all match up with biblical verses about the end of the world. Three to be exact. I know one way or another, demons or demonish creature(s) are in the flick, and one way or another its gonna drive me fucking nuts. again, im not an anime fan, but i think the NGE would make a pretty good live action movie. IF you look at the main people in the NGE series, theres 4 chick ands 2 guys (i think) in the trailer, 4 girls, and a couple guys. ANNND badrobot said the OFFICAL name of the movie will be released at the San Deigo Comic con, that being said... why would a movie title be released there if it wasnt comic related? JJA has said before on film he likes comic style plots, but live action filming.... I doubt it will be an NGE movie, and i have made no conclusions yet.... but i thought id share my findings so far with the world...

    that would be a stupid movie if a big cloud of smoke was the monster.wheres the imagination????

    FYI, if its Lost, I am out, wont see it, dont care, Dumb show no continuity, and totally off. And I bet I speak for more than a few Million ticket buyers, the show is not that high int he ratings so even if everyone who is dedicated to the show goes twice, Transformers would still kick its ass in income with its first weekend. Hence the reason it aint lost or anything close. jmho
  • bam
    if this movie did turn out to be some gay smoke monster that would be so stupid big thing of smoke that has the power to tear down building and shoot fire possibly and kill ppl thats the dumbest most retarded thing ive ever heared how woudl u kill smoke anyway?? if it was the smoke monster (WHICH ITS NOT) i wouldnt bother seeing this movie it would be such a waste of money
  • jeremy
    rofl!!! now that the LOST fans have seemed to prove this is the LOST movie ppl are getting all butt hurt.... like "it would be lame if the movie was about a cloud of smoke" or "gay no one wants to see a movie about smoke throwing things..... LOST is a complicated show and overall universe and its ok if you cant wrap your simple minds around it.......

    I just noticed something interesting on the slushozoom.com site, if you go down below the "supportslushozoom" link there is a . and then a .. each one leads to a different link, one about the dangers of "cocaine energy drink" and one about a vaccine and diseases. Could this possibly be some sort of clue?
  • joe
    This is utterly ridiculous. Seriously. Only going to make it all the more bad when this movie bombs due to pre production hype.
  • Kevin
    to 254... no i doubt it, JJ A said 1-18-08.com was the only site from him, and slusho.com was confirmed by badrobot... and i think the haaswasright shit is supposedly.. JJ A was quoted saying "we have a ton of stuff on the net, alot of fun stuff giving details about the movie.... but the thing is, only one site [1-19-08.com] has been found... my 2 cents... i dont think its a lost movie, the cloud of smoke in the explosion was a smoke trail from a flying object... and whats the point of the hidden demons and slusho? Slush may have been from alias, but no monsters were. But i dunno, i think all this www puzzle bullshit is entertaining at work and all, and it will make the movie BETTER when i see it cause it wont be what i expected... but im heading home so im done for now.
  • Jim lee
    tom is right,a movie about a big cloud of smoke throwing stuff would be STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • decker
    lol, thanks JEREMY, well said, and now I don't have to say it... but I will say that I DO understand how lame a black smoke monster may sound, I (a huge lost fan) was even kinda disappointed the first time I saw the smoke on lost, but it goes way beyond that, it's whatever the monster is made of or from and what it's motivation is that's so damn mysteries, there's MUCH more to it then just smoke and even us loyal lost fans really don't know all that much, AND connected to lost or not, ANYONE can see this movie and come to understand it, it may not even be all that clear whether it connects to the island or not once all is said and done, cause if it does then ya know there will be another in 3 years when lost is all wrapped up... the main thing to understand is that Abrams is a genius and lost or not this movie will do much more then entertain, it will make ya think, it already has!!!

    Somebody do me a favor. Check out Godzilla Zero Hour.com & tell me what you think. It appears that the first Godzilla vs. Gamera is coming out on 1-18-08. It also will be co-starring Gigan, Gyaos as well as Legion from the latest Gamera trilogy. Under the Gigan pic is the date 1-18-08.
  • kevin
    Sinner... its not a godzilla movie. There's no way. Godzilla's rights are owned by sony, this movie has been openly stated as a paramount film... There's often a time when the box office explodes because two bombshells drop at the same time.

    ok guys iam wrong that this could be a eeffecvangelion movie, found the trailer for it, but dunno if this is a real trailer but jesus that looks amazing 2 i want to see it 2 more than i want to watch the jj abrams movie and the evangelion movie includes a lot of popular staff. the special effects were making frome the same people who had made the lord of the ring effects, also i saw the same guy who acts in the triology of lord of the rings and sin city forget his name but everyone knows him ^^, the girls from the spiderman movies forget her name 2 ^^ and keanu reeves for me that looks awesome here you can watch it and tell me what u think about it

    lol just a fake trailer sry ^^
  • BigTone
    Ok, I'm going to put, my own realistic spin on this a little. The pictures on http://www.1-18-08.com are time stamped as we all know. First pic is of the party, with slosho shirt and time stamp 12:31 The roar and earthquake, them the the news reports at 12:36 The second pic on 1-18-08 page, two girls are looking up. time stamp 12:36. This pic could be in the area of the monster/alien whatever, they could be looking up at it in shock at Coney Island.http://www.firstshowing.net/2007/07/16/cloverfield-1-18-08-updates-coney-island-flashback-and-set-photos/ People head to the roof shorty after the news, roar and something explodes. Some people think that it shooting fire balls. I think it's a explosion maybe a piece of the statue was chucked and hit something like a fuel depo shipping station at the port. I say this because, I seen a rocket explode while I was at work. J.J. Abrams seems to make things as real as posible in his movies. Look at this rocket http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1381963273853382138&hl=en Next people haul ass off the top of the building only to have a whisling piece of the statue chucked in they area. This happens after all the firey pieces came down from the explosion earlier, I don't think it shot fireballs at the statue or one of them hit it. It's to much of a gap in between the events. Next pic on 1-18-08 is of people in a scene looking close to 911 WTS and this could be the aftermath in the area of the explosion. I'm just trying not to go to far off the subject of what we have. Area Map of the Statues location http://www.greatbuildings.com/cgi-bin/building_map.cgi?Statue_of_Liberty
  • kevin
    Cifty, i mentioned the idea of a NGE movie, and i think its a possibility, but doubt it. I think once the name is let out, its gonna clarify a bunch of the bullshit ideas, and make guessing a bit easier. Im not into anime or anything, but I read about the plot and stuff to NGE and i think it would make a pretty sick live action flick. (refer to post 245 for my explination) But i mean, seriously, why let out the name at one of the biggest anime fan events? the san d comic con if its NOT comicbook/cartoon related? BUT again, just my 2 cents

    I highly doubt posts 281 is the real JJ Abrams, but either way he's right. We will never figure this little puzzle out, because he is holding all of the pieces. If you've watched the TV show "LOST", then you know it's not just the name of the show, it's the state of mind you are in when you watch it. The less we know, the more we will want to know on 1-18-2008. It's all part of the total mind fuck that is JJ Abrams. I won’t be surprised if this is the top grossing film of all time, when it’s all said and done.

  • kevin
    Hey... f orget EVERYTHING you have read... go read revelations chapter 12.... it mentions a woman who will die that has 5 stars on here head, from a foreign country, and the nation will mourn her death... The statue of liberty head was WAAAAY SMALL in the trailer... the real head is huge.. ive been inside of it, PLUS the head wouldnt be able to come from the inner city, because the SOL is on ellis island. Anyways, In central newyork city theres a MINY statue of liberty head and get this.... Its crown has 5 points instead of 7 like the real one... and in the trailer, theres 3spikes, 1 broken, a one bent.... 5 points from the head of a foreign woman (the statue was a gift to the us mind you...) BAMSIS! whats everyone/anyone think?
  • kevin
    And JJ A said himself this movie is something that hasnt been done before, so ill bet cash its not a remake.

  • joey
    the website on post 299 is great i think wondering? found the monster.
  • kevin
    307, i dont think so... cause jj said it was gonna be something never seen before, and where did he get the 1-18-08 link to that? Just because you googled it, and it came up doesnt mean it IS linked... remember 1-18-08 is still a day on the calender and was before JJ ever started the project... so just cause you googled a day and a shit ton of stuff popped up, its not nessicarly legit or real... that make sence? I mean with how gnarly people are getting into it, its turning into the number 23 for some people.
  • Geoffrey
    Okay well I just listen to it again and he is saying its alive not its a lion. so lets think about this. If you were commenting on something that was normally alive you wouldnt need to say its alive would you? no I think that something that shouldnt be alive comes alive in this film. this explains the advisement that it is in fact alive. I dont know what it is to be honest with you but ill figure it out in about a week.
  • KEvin
    310.. i didnt think about that... but theres not a whole lot in NYC that would come alive and be "huge" and be all that scary... i mean the big stuff in NYC are the buildings, and the SOL... so unless the SOL threw down with the mini sol, i dunno... but good point i didnt think of that. 311... yes i know it sucks... like what 6 months? lol Oh, and i thought this might catch your interests, I hear that every thursday is when new pics come out on 1-18-08.com has anyone found anything in the white 911style pic? and i just noticed something.... i used to take photgraphy for like 6 years, so shit stands out to me that normally doesnt with people, like mis focus of the camera and what not... everyone pause exality on 0:27 when the straight brown hair girl starts talking... look directly over her right shoulder... blurry right? Because the focus is on the girl.... Look farther right. BAM theres someone in perfect focus downing a drink with a BB behind him...

    If you watch the video above. On the end of time mark 1:24 to 1:25 you can see a angel down the street on the right side of the road. It looks like the second street light but, you can see it glowing. It looks like it's standing up with it's head down as if it was praying. You can see what looks like a wing behind it, it's gone after the head hits the building and cars.

    slusho.jp was confirmed as linked to 1-18-08 per JJ A referances and the source code. slushozoom is hinted at all over from slusho because everyones bubbles say "SLUSHO ZOOM" and for the fact it says ZOOM on multiple walls in the trailer. some info from the 11808 and slusho sorce code match up with slushozoom just fyi... ::shrug::
  • nick
    post #321 i see wat ur saying but i dont see why all you ppl would go that deep into the site when we dont even know its linked to the movie (and most likely isnt) i mean i could go make a site right now called "fresh for you" cuz it pops up in bubbles also and ibet u guys woudl jump on that pretty fast. you guys should be looking at slusho.jp cuz jj even said there are hints on the site we havent found yet but thats just my opinion

    Does anyone notice at 1:11 as the people are running for the door you can see writing on the brick wall. My Computer sucks and ts a little blurry so i can't read what it says. From what i can tell i see an C and what i think is an M right next to eachother and then another one or two letters after it but i can't tell.

Considering the FIRST godzilla movie cost $900,000 and had NO cgi...

    THE NUMBER IS........."6" Using the buttons on your cellphone assign a numeric value to the letters in the name, "J.J. Abrams". J=5, J=5, A=2, B=2, R=7, A=2, M=6, S=7. Now add them up......I'll wait........36. Three-Six. It goes around and around. It worked with the numbers in "Lost" using various mathamatical manipulations. 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. First thing to mention here. There are 6 numbers!(Duh!!!) Now... 4, _,8=6 ( 6 is the even number between 4 and 8 ex: 4,"6",8 ) 15: 1+5=6(simply adding the 1 and 5 together) 16: 1x6=6(no need to explain is there?) 23: 2x3=6 (get the picture?) 42: 4+2=6........... Anytime you see 18(3x6) know what you are looking at. Also, the movie title, 01-18-08... 1+1+8+8=18 which is 6x3. And he produced the ABC drama, Six Degrees. J.J. loves them 6's!!

    Here's a new update from the same website I posted earlier, definitely some interresting things here! The rumor about this film being watched as if a video camera filmed the entire incident seems to be true; read this: "The film starts with a rescue crew cleaning up after the entire incident, and one of them finds a camera. They rewind the tape, press play… and the playback is the movie that unfolds". Here's the link if you want to read more. http://www.slashfilm.com/2007/07/16/cloverfield-title-revealed-set-photos-the-origin-of-slusho-video-and-more/
  • jc
    i dont know if this has anything to do with it, but at the start of the trailer u see rob cum in and a guy takin pics, this could be the same guy who took the 3 pics u can see on the website. also on the topic of the three photos, teh one with the 2 women on it, is in fact 1 woman, if u make 2 copies of the image and place them side by side and move the right one up slighly they match. the reason u may see 2 women could be some form of interference with the cam corder
  • jc
    another point, as mentioned earlier on rob runs his hands thru his hair, suggesting that he knows sumthink that the others dont, also the camera man say "looks like you should have left town a little earlier" he does not say this in a sarcastic way, which could suggest he knows something along with rob. this could also be supported by the fact that rob is the camera mans "main dude" they are close. also,when u first hear the sound, i kinda sounds to me like stone is being rubbed together or moved, i might be wrong on this, but some sort of stone statue or something comes to life, that woudl work with the guy saying "its alive"

    Let me know what you guys think of either of these... At first I thought the female voice you heard say "the myth" actually said "the mix" as in they were listening to a Wolfmother remix but after you hear a female voice say something like "the myth" at 00:38, listen at 00:42 under the roar, you hear the same female groan (use headphones). Could their be more than one monster/being? Also, everyone is talking about the quote "I saw it, it's alive". Isn't that kind of a weird quote to say if you saw a huge monster blowing up NY? HAHA, no sh*t it's alive idiot. I thought he would have used the word "monster" or "dinosaur" if it were such. I thought of Dr. Frankenstein screaming "it's alive" because something he thought wasn't alive is now alive. Maybe insteaed of an alien, something already on earth came to life. I was stretching it though when I thought maybe the statue of liberty "shed it's rock" and became alive, but I'm sure it's not. On another note for Lost fans, the only thing I could put on, is that the movie does come out the same month the new season starts and as a Lost fan myself, I would love to see maybe a reason (future reference) of why it was a bad idea to leave the island or dimension or wherever the hell they really are (maybe something followed them home) but as a huge sci-fi fan, I really don't care what it is right now and I hope I don't ever know until the movie actually comes out.
  • NIevo
    I too almost believe there is more then one sound/roar. You listen to it and it just sounds like to many different noises to be coming from one monster. Also, can anyone else see any tie-in's to St. Patricks Day? Someone mentioned the green Empire State building and then I got to thinking about the Cloverfield title relating to clovers. Coincidence? Reading the Slusho webpage history it seems weird that the secret ingredient is found deep in the ocean and makes things grow huge. Hmm. Just so many weird twists here to know which ones are relevant and which ones are there to throw you for a loop.
  • Kevin
    i mentioned this before but here goes again with more details... The statue of libertys head is ENORMUS. People go inside of it. The neck and head in the trailer wasnt even as big as the road. And the SOL has 7 spikes on her crown. IF you go into central new york (area in which the attack was) At some garden there is a SMALLER statue of liberty. It has 5 spikes on here crown. In the trailer there is 1 broken, 1 bent, and 4 slightly damaged spikes. PLUS the the real statue of liberty is an iron frame with a copper cover. thats why it turned green. The mini one is made out of stone. Thus its the mini SOL that was decapatated. And on the 5 spike note, go read releations chap 20. Theres a a foreign woman with 5 marks on her head that gets killed and the nation will mourn. SOL was a gift from france, so shes foreign, and the 5 spikes of the mini one... just my way of 2+2...
  • Forusre
    I know for a fact that this movie is green lantern.
  • NIevo
    Any idea's of where the second statue is? Maybe there is a clue as to the surroundings its in?
  • Rob
    The statue of liberty's head was the actual statue of liberty we all know. I'm not sure about a smaller second one in NY (there is a smaller one in Paris I know) but there is no other statue of liberty head that big in NY
  • Kevin
    355, the head has the neck attached in the trailer... the real SOLs head would be almost double that
  • joey
    maybe rob is part of a top secret project that is keeping a monster inside the statue of liberty but the monster gets out oh and jc, he tells another guy hes his main dude not the camera man
  • JJJackson
    Statue of Liberty is 17 feet from chin to cranium, according to the Parks website. And it can't be stone if a spike is 'bent' because stone wouldn't bend. Think "artistic liscense". Though you'd think they'd have made it coppery green instead of stainless steel looking.
  • Rob
    357, the head appears to be almost twice the size of the car which is close to what the real SOLs head would be (which is 10 x 17). Also if you think about it, what would show more "power" and be more meaningful, taking out the statue of liberty or taking out a miniature copy of it? I also still haven't found a second statue in NY that would be close to that size. I'm guessing there might be symbology in taking out the statue of liberty as well. It was originally seen as a beacon to new arrivals to America but in the movie, the "new arrival" rips it's head off haha.
  • http://www.drewgoddard.com/ Goddard, D
    Interesting theories. Keep on searching and you'll find them without any assistance needed.
  • NIevo
    Ok, how about a new twist on this whole thing. What if they find the camera on 1-18-08 but the events we are seeing already or is about to happen? Think about it, the weather obviously isn't January weather. Also, why would it be so important to an entire film to find a video camera and see what was on it if people survived? It's almost like there was no idea as to what went on and there were no survivors or trace of them. Like something from the lines of a 6th Sense or Silent Hill type twist.
  • decker
    remember now people, Abrams is not only good at keepin you guessin but clever enough to throw out false leads as well, enjoy all the theories you have or hear, well except the really dumb ones, but most of all just stay open and like someone up above said, just hope that it's as top secret now as it is the day you spend your money to see it!

    I am an actor who worked on the L.A. set of this film. Many of the theories are way off, and quite entertaining... .... but the truth is better than most of the guesses I've read. You are all going to say "WAY cool" when it's finally revealed ....I would love to share more.... but I signed a Non-Disclosure agreement, and would be in BIG trouble if I did! lol, so sorry! :-)

  • Tythandril
    to 366: AHAHAHHAHAHA HE'S RIGHT, watch the trailer, at 24 seconds pause it and look at the cereal box...behind the blonde chick saying: "Im going to miss it."....look closely at the box, you will see!!!
  • Tythandril
    to 366: He is right, everyone watch the trailer again. Pause it at 24 seconds and look to the left of the blond chick's head, the cereal box ontop of the mini-fridge. Looks like some sort of animal on the box of cereal...i wont say what it is, look for yourself. Can't believe no one other than 366 saw this!!! Way to go divinekhaos!
  • Kevin
    Whats at 24? i can see it cause it wont let me watch the HD trailer... otherwise its just a blur
  • Scott
    360. Are you Drew Goddard? If so, please tell us your script! I know you wrote it so please let us in on the secret.
  • WB
    I copied the frame from the HD trailer and examined the cereal box. Blurry as it is, when rotated 90 degrees it appears to be a person in light colored clothing with a large hat similar to what the asians wear in the rice fields, the person also appears to be crouching as if working on the ground. Don't think its a "monster", just some food product box or other with a "human" figure on it. Anybody else see this?
  • chris
    349, you are on to something. The song being played during the first attack is "Woman", song 2 off the Wolfmother LP (2005). Read the lyrics to the song immediately before it. This is so blindingly obvious it's almost painful. There will undoubtedly be two Wolfmother songs on the soundtrack to this movie.
  • gigaber
    At 00:38, they are playing 'WOMAN' by WOLF MOTHER. At 00:39, a distinctly feminine voice is heard. Track one on the WOLF MOTHER CD is... ah, I see where you are going with this theory. Especially considering the way the Statue of Liberty's head seems to have received one hell of a backhanded slap. YES.

    post 366 please tell what pic on cereal box is just a blur for me, my computers crappy:)

  • freddy
    kevin on the topic above,when the girl says "the myth"maybe she sees something int the picture that we cant,maybe a sign or picture or something that resembles a monster:_:
  • Daniel
    I rotated the cereal box (actually, I think it might be a jigsaw puzzle box, sat on it's side, with a picture of the puzzle on the front) all the way round and at 90 deg clockwise and looks somewhat like the sea-creatures from the TV show "Surface" from 05/06. The show ended with a cliffhanger and was then cancelled. I found an article about the creators of Surface saying it was dead for TV but may be seen again (Link to article: http://www.sliceofscifi.com/2006/11/13/pate-bros-pronounce-surface-definitely-dead-on-tv-but-not-yet-gone/). I tried to fink any link between them and JJA but no luck. This was the type of show JJA would have been into though: mysterious creatures, government conspiracies, serialised drama raising more questions each episode than answers (sound familiar) and then ending with a huge cliffhanger. Has JJA secretly got the rights to finish the show off via a movie (think Firefly / Serenity). The monsters came from lava caves under the ocean floor, looking somewhat like a whale sized salamander/newt and coud produce huge bio-electricital shocks (explosion in city) by draining power from energy sources around it (blackout during party). The were also HUGE!. Oh, and Alive! That's my 2 cents but at least it's not another Voltron/Godzilla theory!
  • freddy
    i saw it, its alive, its huge=in abbreveations thats ISIIAIH.well i typed that in at google and nothing came up but take away the third and fourth I.and you get ISAIAH as in the bible ISAIAH.now i typed that in on google and got a passage,read isaiah 8:18, besides the 8:18 alot of other clues are in the scripture so please read the scripture. possibly connected to the movie. here is the scripture>>> LOOK,I and the sons whom the lord has given me are reminders and object lessons in israel,sent from the LORD who commands armies,who lives on mount zion.
  • Cifty Fent
    could be a sequel to that but i read an article that this movie wouldn't be a sequel to any other movies or series it is something new, but now it's all to confused with this clues of all of us this could be everything like the dude before says: its hugh heffner ^^
  • divinekhaos
    comingsoon.net........look at the high res version of trailor....24 seconds into the trailor, with the blond that says "im going to miss bob......the green box....the chineses characters got my attention.....its not cereal... its a head, a robot head coming out the water........look close.... its a not puzzle.....!

  • Wingnut
    at :28 the clock says it's 10:10 and that clock is in weird place but I don't know if it means anything.
  • Wingnut
    You have to look at the full screen version of the trailer but at about :34 it says MISTERY on the side of the fridge door with some other letters that I can't read. If someone has a bigger screen maybe they can make it out. Also google MISTERY and you get some interesting stuff.
  • ~Rod
    392, I noticed that clock as well. But came to the conclusion that it doesn't mean anything because almost every watch/clock you see advertized or for sale (if not plugged in/batteries) is set to: 10:10 Why is this? I've yet to figure that one out. Maybe it just looks cool... or gives it a balanced look. But check it out for yourself in magazines, stores, etc. You will see what I mean. So, perhaps that clock is simply part of some decor and never meant to function.
  • ~Rod
    I don't believe that post above was really an actor from the set. But FWIW, I bet in the end we will be surprised at what the movie will REALLY be about. Either way, there's SFX/destruction... and that's worth the ticket in and of itself!

    My opinion I am a Godzilla fan, and i would love for it to be another Godzilla Movie, But I havn't seen enough to prove that it is Godzilla. I don't quite know what it is, but if it Was a Godzilla movie, I would have know about it by now. and if it wa, I would be fuckin ROFL at bam for being the moron who thinks he knows it all but don't. By the way, do you not have anything else to do other than be rude to other peoples opinions and not even making any of your own Bam. To me that sounds like a moron there. And you can say what ever you want about Godzilla fans, We like what we like and that is that, so either be a damn adult and place your own opinion about the damn movie, or YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP, AND STAY OUT OF HERE DAMN IT!!!!
  • bam
    damn u must have really read far up cuzi havent posted on here in awhile. yes i have posted my opinion plenty plenty plenty of times and i say its not a godzilla movie and i KNOW its not because if you go the article on first showing called ""Cloverfield / 1-18-08 Updates: Coney Island Flashback and Set Photos"" it will show you/tell you how it isnt a sequel.prequel or ripoff of anything its something NEW and it has also been mentioned before that its something new. no i dont think i know all about it all i know is that its a monster (not godzilla,voltron,or cthulu) destroying new york. im also sorry you wont get to ROFL at me when the movie comes up cuz i personally cant wait to ROFLMFA at all u people who think its godzilla or voltron or ghostbusters or fuckin powerrangers. every one just needs to accept the facts its not a remake or ripoff of anything and that its original. AND if you think its godzilla or voltron or somethin els plz POST SOME SOLID LEGIT PROOF dont just say "oh it had voltron written all over it" k thx

    they did say it was a giant lion. did godzilla ever fight a giant lion? and the fact that robert is going to japan sound like a plot device. "i saw it. it's a lion. its huge!" but even just a movie about a giant lion of doom could be pretty sweet.
  • Ripper
    One he says It's Alive thats it its not a moive about a giant fuckin lion that would be ignnorant. That sounds like a direct to dvd moive to me.

    when they run downstairs and go outside does any1 know what the donut looking thing on the guys shirt is? also, this mite not mean anything but when u see the ppl running down the street, u see atleast 1 guy in a blue hard hat, he could be a builder, or somthing along those lines, and he mite have uncovered something while digging

  • jc
    i think rob knows what the noise is, if u pause the trailer at 39 seconds,when the lights go out and then come back for a fraction of a second. rob is the only 1 lookin towards the window and he looks worried, mite take a few attemps at moving the arrow thing on the trailer to find it
  • Matt
    I think it's possible that Rob knows what is going on, but can't take the trailer as proof of that. I would look worried to, if I heard a huge roar like that accompanied with something similar to an earthquake. Against that though, he's also the one who suggests going out on the roof to see what is going on, which if he knew what it was would be the stupidest decision ever.
  • jc
    when rob is on the roof he is in the prime location to see were the explosion is and he is also looking in tht direction b4 the explosion happens, i also think the camera man may know sumthink as, he tells rob he shud have left earlier and also rob, helps him when he falls down on the stairs, he mite do tht cuz thts his mate but in a situation ud usualy think of yaself, but he may need the camera man
  • jc
    whne u see the explosion,a group of things shoot out from the explosion, and there not like smallish thing and in large numbers they are large things, and there is only about 8
  • Howard Phillips
    Has anyone thought that maybe this is a sequel to Cthulhu(which comes out this fall). The trailer looks to be more of the cult story about Cthulhu and Cloverfield could possibly be the follow up/big unveiling of Cthulhu. I mean it does seem like this movie starts up rather quickly and we do know that the story starts around midnight. It's still totally possible that both movies could be tied to lost. I know most people will immediately shoot this theory in the head, but let me ask you this why do we see 401 show up a number of time in the Cloverfield trailer. 401 is the area code for Rhode Island. I live in Rhode Island and I am a huge H.P. Lovecraft fan. For those who don't know H.P. Lovecraft, he created the Cthulhu Mythos in RI. He also lived and died there. RI is known as the ocean state. Now think back to the slusho site and keep in mind the ocean theme. Lets not forget the name you can spell out using both The Parasite and Cloverfield code names. I got plenty more and I could go all day with comparisons, but frankly noone can tell me different. When I first saw the trailer during transformers I thought about Cthulhu instantly. So slam me all you like for I AM PROVIDENCE.
  • bam
    i really dont think they would come out with a sequel THAT fast
  • Chan
    i was only asking if godzilla battled a lion, if he never did than it is easily ruled out you see? and jeez i dont deserve to be called ignorant because i think it sounded like "lion" and not "alive" like others think. i wont be broken up if i see the movie and im wrong you know.... btw when the lights first go out and the earthquake happens the sound was like a whale call (evil humpback of doom? LMFAO). definetly not saying its a whale. that wouldnt make much sence but it could support the cthulu theory although i believe that is mildly unlikely. if you look up cloverfield on wikipedia they say one report says that it is a completely original film, as well as it being done completely in video cameras. its still all speculation now.

    They lyrics to the song (album-wise, immediately before) the song played during the first attack is: "... the first time I saw Colossal Girl". You can find this information on any Wolfmother lyrics website. Coincidence? I think not. Besides, who else could land a backhanded slap to the Statue of Liberty like that? None other than a very large (possibly jealous) woman.

    No way Hulk Hogan only has two moves in his arsenal. The clothes line and the leg drop, plus he got beat up for the first half of every one of his matches and then all of a sudden out of no where the power of the Hulkamaniacs flows through him, he does the "oh no you didn't" finger shake complete with bug eyes and then proceeds with the destruction. On a serious side the title is most def not being dropped this early. J.J. wants you guys to go insane, and based on that last comment it's working.

    Well not sure what the the hell it is, but because I've been thinking about it so much I think I ruined it for myself as I can't think of any good movie thats going to justify that preview other then maybe a War of the Worlds part two but I don't see that happening either as I believe their was only one book. My best guess would be it might be a totally new movie and story not some remake of a existing fictional character or story. If it is a remake or about some fictional character it would be "Godzilla" but only if they bought the rights and only if the preview sequence is of some sort of Godzilla enemy who shoots some sort of fireballs, otherwise my next guess would either "Ultraman" the movie ha ha yeah right or this one "Negadon: The Monster From Mars" see below: (http://images.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=http://www.scifijapan.com/MIPTV/UltramanMax02b.jpg&imgrefurl =http://www.scifijapan.com/articles/2006/03/&h=596&w=900&sz=429&tbnid=k9tig6uMi7XSYM:&tbnh= 97&tbnw=146&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dultraman%26um%3D1&start=3&sa=X&oi=images&ct=image&cd=3) March 14th, 2006 11:21 pm In News: Kaiju, News: DVD NEGADON: THE MONSTER FROM MARS Author: Keith Aiken NEGADON: THE MONSTER FROM MARS launches its all-out assault on Tokyo.

  • Ripper
    Ya, but he said that he wants up to have our own monster just as insane as godzilla. It IS AN ORIGINAL MONSTER if you know JJ is so creative then why would he remake a monster when he could create somthing and be remebered for it. I think he wants this moive to stay with people for years to come like Godzilla or King Kong. It will be amazing and it will be original BECAUSE it he made it. On another note Thank God Monstrous is not the title, and that was the offical teaser poster.BADASS

    Ok this may mean nothing but think back to my post #409. Watch the Cthulhu trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzXtrRybOnU. Theres a freakin polar bear in it. Also what the hell is going on. It seems very J.J. Abrams. Also I found there is no producer attached to this movie. This only fuels my sequel theory. Even though Cthulhu is not an original idea it could still be done in an original fashion and have nothing to do with H.P. Lovecraft's "Call of Cthulhu". One thing H.P. didn't do was copyright his stories, in fact he encouraged people to continue his ideas. Maybe the smoke monster on the island in lost is merely a physical depiction of Cthulhu's underwater slumber.

    That link doesnt work?

    to #437. That was a real ignorant and immature thing to say. Instead of being a total fun spoiler you should just let people have fun with this. Serious some people even think it's a Pokemon movie. I just look at the clues and based on all of the them plus the gut feeling I had watching the trailer for the first time during transformers, I would have to say I get a Lovecraft impression. Try coming up with your own theory. You just might have fun. Sigmund the Sea Monster did make me laugh though.
  • Howard Phillips
    Sorry #438. Here is the official site which has the trailer http://cthulhuthemovie.com/
  • kevin
    New photos out. Appears to be mid fridays not thursdays
  • kevin
    New pictures out. They let em out on mid fridays. Also, they changed the way things move. You cant just click on it and bring the pic ontop. You have to drag it out from under the other.
  • Ripper
    Dam kevin thought i was going to get here first lolol. Ya its three people partying at 12:04 so apparetly everything is cool until i bet around 12:30. Don't think it really shows us anything.
  • gigaber
    Evidence for the Wolfmother Lyrics connection. This is a real theory, not a joke. "... the song, "The Joker and the Thief" by the band Wolfmother, is playing in the background; the song contains the lyric, "Standing in a field of clover" (the project has also been known as Cloverfield and Clover). So it is a Colossal Girl. The feminine voice at 00:38 and 00:42 was a big clue, thanks 350.
  • JJJackson
    FYI - the pics turn over too....move them, grab, and shake. About the poster, it looks like somethhing has left a wake on the water, plowing into NYC, possibly glancing off the Statue of Liberty. The poster, on one site I saw, appeared to be overlaid with a weird waterey looking reflection of the face of a skyscraper. Thoughts?
  • tony
    try flipping the pics in the website around
  • Tom
    Thanks Howard was proud of the Sigmund line myself, OK everyone take a look at the poster one more time, Claw marks down the back of the SOL, and on the Buildings, 3 Claws to be exact, I know Not Godzilla, But for arguments sake I think thats the general idea of the creature, Also was in the Water, Came from the Sea OBVIOUSLY, I dont think Lions swim very well as for Pokemon? I dont know if they can swim???? That was a joke, For the clue hunters, we need to be thinking totally new beast totally new idea, but I tihnk keeping the Big Toho Lizard in mind might help, because given all the clues by Abrams and the things on the net, Its closer to that then a Squid or a Robot or a Giant Picachu????
  • jc
    dont know if this is fact but ive read that the movie is seen through the camera like in the trailer, ive read that you might see it thru the camera after the event has happened. if this is true then the peope at the party and characters must be fine and not dead or disapeared or whateva, because on the back of the photos there is a lil note. so the pic is from the date. but for her to send it and write on it, means it has to be done after the date and the only other explination is tht it was printed there and then at the party so other mite have been and they may give more clues
  • A R Anderson
    It's the baby Godzilla grown up.
  • H P L (in the hizzle) ahem...Howard Phillips.
    Ok guys. I been flipping, twisting, turning, and staring a different positions. I was thinking that eventually clues would lead to an order in how the pics are to be arranged to eventually form a magic eye picture of the beast. Otherwise I did a good hour long analysis. Obviously the time stamps play a huge role. So now I leave you with far out guess #981. I think it could be........A GIANT DUNNY ACTION FIGURE, but he poops fire balls and he is blank in appearance.
  • Just Looking
    New picture added to 1-18-08.com: 12:04 AM
  • Tom
    #450, I think his name is Gadzoookie!!!!!!!! Oh god waiting for the Giant Picachu poster now!!!
  • kevin
    Im begining to think the 3 biblical beats. Ones water, ones earth, and ones air....
  • kevin
    Oh, and for th record, the 3 beasts are mainly n jewish beleif. That being said, the jewih bible is the old testimant. The old testimant is part of christianity. Allthat said, i heard JJA was jewish.... :shrugg::
  • heckle0
    Crap thought i would be posting first about the new pic and about being able to flip them over...damn
  • scotty
    the biblical support seems like it has to be a top choice. The book of revelation is a is a book filled with parralells and symbolisms mainly talking about the end times. Most christians believe it to be just that, symbolisms, not reality of the end times. But to make a movie about this??? completley original and awesome. read the book of revelation, its a short read. But to put all the symbolism into reality sounds like Abrams to me. I dont need to repeat what else was said about the bible, but mind you. 12 and 7 are holy numbers, numbers divisible by these numbers are holy as well. The same goes for the number 6, and it being unholy. Take a look, those numbers are everywhere. Many would be pleasantly surprised at the potential for a Revelation flik.
  • Ed
    JJ is leading is all to believe that its something huge but watch it turn out to be something small. And I dont mean freaking Pokeman either. Maybe more like The Micronauts.
  • Ed
    C'mon people I explained this 200 posts ago. Listen to the trailer on a computer hooked up to GOOD speakers or listen to it with any cheap pair of headphones and you can clearly tell that the guys says "Alive" and not "Lion." This just goes to show how many of you have crappy speakers on your computer.
  • Chan
    howard phillips thats kinda lame. so you're saying its ok to say its something ghey and definetly past its prime like the pokemon movie... but its not ok to say its an original monster movie according to fact. seriously. CHILL. everyone has a right to their opinion. and i feel your usage of "ignorant" wasnt really right. i think we can discuss what cloverfield is without namecalling. even if it is being fervent in telling everyone that it's original. heh heh ed- i have good speakers(harmon kardon) :) the guy just says it really weird. i think he softens his 'v' ( ALI(v)E can sound like A LIO(n) if misheard plus theres background noise and shit) it took me a couple listens to switch my opinion from lion to alive. either way im entertaining thoughts of a giant japanese fiery monsterlion ravaging NY. stupid i know, but funny as hell if you take a second to picture it. :D *chuckles* hell, id like an original. remakes and sequels and movies from famous books/comics are cool and all... but its would be great to see something original, especially in the filming format we have seen in the preview. yes a first person monster movie would be pretty freaking cool, i mean i dont think that type of filming has been seen since the blair witch project. maybe it wont be a failure this time (didnt like the movie, but i found the style it was made in made it midly unerving- camcorders feel more real). cheers ;)
  • J.J.
    Heh. I think my 'ploy' worked. I just wanted to see the anagrams for myself. Guess its a failed theory.
  • Chan
    a doom/apocalypse revelation movie would be cool even from a secular "world coming to an end" viewpoint. but the implications with christians running around saying "seee? repent!" ( I make it sound more theatrical than it is... but *shudder*) there already were movies on this-- Left behind 1 and 2. they werent very popular though still i dunno would they take it literal to an actual revelation dragon running around( if it was- which i doubt)...i mean its all symbolism, not literal.
  • Chan
    BTW 8 is a holier number than 7 believe it or not. lol. oh, alchemists.
  • Ali3n
    was just on the 1-118-08 website and if you hold down the mouse on the pics and quickly flick them they turn over and has a couple of messages on the back like postcards. here are the messages: 1.Dont forget who takes care of you! Love J 2.Lascano Platt and Robbie-Jan 2008 Robbie, Here,use this photo to send a message of my hotness far and wide!!! Im gonna miss the hell out of ya!!. Love Jamie. not sure if they mean anything?
  • scotty
    I know that all of revelation is symbolic, but if it were all taken literally, it would be one hell of a movie, and any 'Christian' knows this, so i dont think there would be See? Repent! type of response. Christians are like anyone else, all different, they cant be stereotyped. Secondly, this theory may be a little 'out there' but revelation says "The end will come like a thief in the night," and right after the initial breakout, all the car alarms go off like theyd be broken into, like a thief in the night. It's out there, but a fun thing to think about. Also, the left behind series was NOT about the events in revelation all together, its about a more specific Revelation theory called The Rapture.
  • HPL......Howard Phillips. The Venus Occupant
    In regards to the first paragraph of post#459. I want people to have fun. I used the word ignorant in defense of the LOVECRAFT story call of cthulhu. I think I been being fair and for you to attack me specifically is very unfair. Also just so you know it's totally a captain planet movie.
  • JJJackson
    From the Slusho site …the burro thinking 'mitt', the fish thinking 'cheese', now the jellyfish thinks 'hammer’ Mit, Cheese, Hammer M C Hammer….OH NO! STOP HIM! HE'S ALIVE, and he's HUGE! A scary thought, to say the least!
  • kevin
    on the whole lion thing.... its in new york, and the guy has the accent. He says alive. ALSO, the picture with "J". I think J stands for jason. WHICH would make the guy wearing the slusho shirt be the one they were worried about upon reaching the street
  • Anonymous
    OK everybody listen up! I've just been onto the official 1-18-08 website and discovered something REALLY weird? I don't know whether anybody else has figured out how to do this, but I managed to do it (it was only a fluke). When you're on the website put your cursor over one of the photographs and it will turn into a hand, click it with your mouse and draw circles around it in the middle and you should get the photograph to turn over. If doesn't work keep trying and eentually it will. Only two of the photographs have writing on the back, the one with the guy drinking in it and the other one is the one with a girl and two guys smiling. Somebody give it a try.
  • Phenox
    We all know that you can flip the pictures over, and that two of them have writing. The question is what does it help us achieve? I've managed to find everyone's name; Robby Hawkins JJ (Jason) Hawkins Jamie Lascano Hudson Platt Lily Ford Beth McIntyre Marlena Diamond Jason is the person holding the video camera in the trailer, and is "J" on the back of the picture. He's brothers with Robby, and they both live together in the apartment. The rest of the people are friends of Robbie and Jason. Jamie Lascano, Hudson Platt, and Robby are the people in the other picture with writing on it. Other than that, I don't know what else to do with the pictures right now. Any ideas?
  • Phenox
    JJ Abrams said that it wasn't Godzilla, so it won't be. It's been said many times already. It was released at ComiCon
  • Jordan H.
    it looks like it could be some kind of newer godzilla movie.....
  • Kevin
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8OzfjmVfHw theres his comments at the comic con. He didnt release shit besides the SOL poster.
  • CHRIS
    U GUYS THINK TO MUCH IS SIMPLE AND EASY END OF STORY ITS VOLTRON NICE ONE
  • Johnny
  • Dan
    what if they just made this to fuck with people and the movie has none of this in it?????.. ever thought he's screwing with ya?....misdirection and all that?
  • Ripper
    It is not voltron either...that wouldent be an original monster like JJ SAID its going to be. OK this is so far what i think we can count as fact. 1. It comes from the ocean 2. It has claws and has dome sort of fire ability. 3. Its fucken huge and powerful 4. Its NOT godzilla, voltron, pokemon, The Bible or a giant women. 5. ORIGINAL MONSTER!!!!! NEVER SEEN BEFORE, JJ said he wants a monster for us that is as intense as Godzilla. 6. Slusho website is hiding something we need to figure it out. In the history page the animals with objects over ther heads will mean somthing its clues.
  • bam
    why is every one thinking this is an end of the worl dmovie it clearly isnt when jj said that he was going to make a movie with OUR OWN monster and it saidin a first showing post earlier that a video tape is foudn while guys are cleaning up new york and they play it and it shows wat happend so obviusly its not an end of the world/bible movie
  • Ripper
    SLUSHO.COM IS FULLY OPEN!!!! All the bubbles at the main screen are able to be clicked on.Happy talk is abunch of quotes, Flavors is a bunch of robot drink flavors i am going to try to see if there is anything there just wanted to update everyone.

  • CuriousSteve
    It makes you wonder with a budget of just 30 million will we even get to see the "Monster" or just the explosions and peoples reaction???
  • bam
    i think alot of ppl woudl be pretty pissed if we never saw the monster i know i would
  • nick
    From the latest picture at 1-18-08, when the picture is flipped there's an inscription left from a Jamie, along with three other names on the top. Lascano Platt Robbie Obviously "Jamie" has just written the order in the pictures, so we now have one full character's name: Jamie Lascano. Since Myspace is all the rage these days, if you decided to venture on over to check to see if she has a profile up there, and low and behold, there is a Jamie Lascano available. But get this, she's also friends with a Rob Hawkins. Coincidence, are perhaps something legitimate? I think so because Beth has a profile which coincides with her appearance in the beginning of the trailer. There is also another picture of Hawk with his girlfriend Lil. These profiles are all "friends" with each other, so when you're on one, you can just view their friends to see everyone else's. :) So, looks like something is starting. http://projectcloverfield.com/2007/07/27/character-breakdowns/ Edit: Character Names Rob Hawkins (Age: 26) - Myspace Profile [/robbyhawkins] Jason Hawkins (Age: 28) - Myspace Profile [/jj_hawkins] Lilly Ford (Age: 26) - Myspace Profile [/lilly_ford] Beth McIntyre (Age: 26) - Myspace Profile [/beth_mcintyre] Jamie Lascano (Age: 26) - Myspace Profile [/jamielascano] Marlena Diamond (Age: 26) - Myspace Profile [/marlenadiamond] Hudson Platt (Age: 26) - Myspace Profile [/hudsonplatt] they seem to have the same friends friended. “hawk”, whose myspace username is jj_hawkins, looks a lot like the guy in the slusho shirt. on his girlfriend’s page, there’s a comment referring to “jason”. if hawk is jason, is that who they were looking for in the trailer? and if that was his girlfriend asking “where is jason?” it would make sense that she’s worried about him because they are romantically involved. this is getting interesting. read hawk’s blog. “I took the ‘balls back to my apt, packed a bowl, chugged a Slusho, and I was gonna cruise craigslist for job postings but A&E was running a Sopranos marathon. Hud came home, then Rob, and then Lilly and I went out for Chinese.” chugged a slusho… it also looks like he and hud live with rob, but i kind of figured that from the trailer. rob’s pics are up now. from hawk’s comment, “I am far better looking than you. Clearly I was blessed with the good genes. Even ask mom. ” it looks like they’re brothers. The profiles were only registered a month ago (Signup Date: 06/13/07); But the journal entries are all being back-dated i found all that from http://community.livejournal.com/011808/
  • kevin
    the jelly fish in the history part of slusho now thinks about a hammer
  • kevin
    If you look at robs myspace, theres a pic comment thats says "your wearing your favorite shirt" The shirt has two skeltons praying to a moth with an angelic figure above
  • kevin
    Oh and the girl from the split photo on 1-18-08 (dark haired olived skinned) Shes appears to be JJ Hawks girlfriend judging by the myspace. If you want the actresses name, she played in "life as we know it" which was around for one season.

    WHY delete??? This has good info- http://www.fourguys.net/
  • Lone Spartan
    I am not sure if anyone has noticed, but I looked at the new pic and noticed it said January. Then on the trailer the news cast says it is 63 degrees. Of course the average temp for New York is more like 30. So if anyone knows whuts up, please tell me

  • Phenox
    To Lone Spartan: If you look through the videos on youtube made by NightOwl, also seen in a link on post number 71 on this thread, you will see something about that. Appearantly, he made a connection between the 63 degrees from the temperature and the 36 in the time. 63 reversed is 36... And also, take both 6 and 3, and divide them each by 3, it equals 2 and 1, which reversed, is the same as the other half of the time, "12:36", as seen on the t.v. screen. Same time it says it's 63 degrees out... Anyone that wants to talk about the movie can talk with me at allstr008@aol.com, or my AIM is allstr008. .:Phenox1707:.
  • George
    why do we need clues if the monster is supposed to be "new" anyway? you can't get clues to something nobody has knowledge of
  • Thrawn
    I don't know much about MySpace, so it may mean nothing, but has anyone else noticed that if you look at the friend list of these characters, there seem to be 2 missing from the lists. Example, Rob has 8 friends, but only 6 are shown, Jason has 9, but only 7 appear. Interesting, or just my lack of MySpace knowledge?
  • Johnny
    I'd say that if there are other myspace profiles involved other than the 7, they would probably have been created after June 13 and prior to July 23. (That's the latest create date out of the 7) Since the majority of myspace profiles do not include both first and last names (myspace warns against it), and all of the 7 do, that could be [i]one[/i] indicator of a possibly legit IG profile. So beware of any reported supposed, "IG" profiles which were created prior to June 13, or after July 23. That should at least help to narrow it down a little. I guess we can begin to weed them out of the video comments/subscriptions since that's all we have to go on for now.
  • H.P.
    It's Battle Beasts!!!!!!!No but serious it's gotta be some sort of deity. Something with a familiar name but totally original in appearance. I think J.J. means original in the sense of appearance. It's not like you can copyright a deity. I know most of you don't believe that the Ethan site is tied in, but check this out. This message is hidden on the site. "..war came, no longer from the elemental nor from the star's rain of fire. The world was again remade, and the glow was as the coming of the sun upon the Earth. The children of the gods were again too few, scattered and divided and among them walked the ancients and those whose thoughts were not as to the towers and the marvels, but to the End and the destruction of the Earth and to the fires from which nothing could escape."

  • Nobody
    About the temp, the east coast got some warm weather this year so i dont know if it would mean much...or maybe the fireball caused the temp to go up. Oh, and this is kinda cool, but there is a Cloverfield Blvd in Santa Monica, CA.
  • Howard Phillips
    It was funny when I read the first line, but was that really needed Phenox. Your previous comment was very informative, but now it seems you are the average TOOLBAG. Im not even mad at the dick joke, hell I like dick and fart jokes as much as the next sixth grader. So let me get this straight you have a giant dick with a giant STD. Wow I stand corrected it is something totally original.
  • Fenrir
    For the last time it's not Godzilla paramount does not have the rights to that. If it was Godzilla anyway then it would of been obvious because he would of had his trademark roar/yell. The movie also has this guy who could be a character in the movie sending out weird messages and in one of them he says "If you got this video then you are one of us" and "We need to organize now before August 1st". http://www.movieweb.com/movies/film/53/5153/videos/ Watch the Ethan Hass videos. The things he say are very cryptic but after watching them I think there is more to this movie than just the giant monster himself. All I know that this movie looks like its gonna be very good I can't wait to see it. Also It's NOT voltron. Come on would a voltron movie have a trailer like this? Of course not. This movie is something entirely new and fresh at least thats the feeling I am getting.
  • Fenrir

    The first monster roar is followed by an earthquake- Beamoth, monster of land jewish judment day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! taken right from the end of days story based on the jewish religion The second roar is followed by a huge explosion. Leviathan, the monster of the sea, it can breathe fire. The the third monster roar is followed by the staues head. That is Ziz, the monster of the skies. This makes sense because the Ziz could rip the head off the statue, fly, and drop it. What do you think about that? Again, on the slusho homepage, the buttons show a whale- Leviathan, a horse-Beamoth, and, a bird-Ziz. Another, the history page is under water The downloads page is in the sky and the home page is on land
  • Fenrir
    @RIPPER WHOA! Clam down tripfag. I figured that out today after looking around. Also turn your caps off the puzzle game has nothing to do with the movie but Ethan MIGHT(keyword might) have something to do with it since on some movie sites the videos where featured along with the teaser trailer and don't go cussing people out just because I made a simple mistake. Jesus Christ your capslock key is right there Turn it off.

    #504....I read this somewhere but i can't remember... on the slusho.jp site the horse, duck, and fish have a thought bubble and each think of something different...you'll kind of see a play on words. horse : blue oven mit = behemoth fish : cheese = ziz duck: hammer = ??? (no one could figure this out) the guy that got this is on to something... just an idea. what do ya think?

  • Steve-O
    I have no friggin clue if this emans anything, but if you pause the trailer at 1:11 (or 1:12), the door has soem graffitti on it...it says like "2004 ACE." Who is Ace?

    soem guy said u could see the monster at 1:25 down the street, but I dont see anuthing except for street lgiths and ppl........
  • adrian
    as for the pictures try flipping the ones with no writing on them and using those 3 to cover the entire screen. i havent been able to do it but it seems as tho they cover the entire screen PERFECTLY. now to just figure out how that ties into the other 2 pictures left...... also the number from the video is it possible to text that number and recieve a text back?
  • Howard Phillips
    Ok heres something new. The four posters handed out at comicon. Only three have titles. Monstrous, Furious, Terrifying. The fourth has no title. Why would the fourth have no title? I believe this to be a very significant clue and it goes hand and hand with the slusho stuff. We know that the first creature is land based, the second creature flies, and the third is a sea creature. Are these titles on the posters descriptions of the three monsters or one. Also you can find evidence of three monsters in the trailer. Three roars. I could be wrong but I counted three roars spread out. As far as the pics on the official site go look very closely for evidence of the three different monsters. Maybe all three monsters combine to form one which I believe would be the title of the movie.
  • nick
    howard phillips idk who told u there are three monsters but there is only one we know this cuz jj abrams said america needs there own MONSTER thats singuler the 4th poster says barbrius (sp??) and all 4 of the words describe the ONE monster.
  • kevin
    robby now has 190 friends on myspace, and is online right now
  • H.P.
    Ok so the monster does all three actions. I personally think three monsters would be cool, plus I thought that was what the clues on slusho were getting at. Nick where did you see the fourth poster that said Barbrius. I would like to see that, because I cant find it online. What does barbrius mean? Get back to me. I looked up the word, but was redirected to the encyclopedia. It's not an adjective unless you are spelling it wrong.
  • shane
    IT would completley and absolutley suck big time if it was another godzilla, im hope it's something new and unknown.
  • cooper
    it would absolutley and completeley suck if it was another godzilla film, i hope it's something new and unknown, the trailer was a brilliant idea though. I think they shouldn't make any more trailers, none.
  • nick
    sry the word i was lookin for was Barbarous that poster is actually real hard to find i dont think its made yet butu can google "barbarous cloverfield poster" and it will take u to a bunch of sites talkin about it mostly theyall say the same thing tho

    Hey! They found a No Parking permit sitcker put up in New York with paremounts name on it, the thing is the productions name on the sticker is "Cheese".

They are clever at hiding the production behind such code words. xD I know 1-18-08 is the promotional title or is it? Would be nice if someone can shed some light on that. Also I have to ask is the cthulhu theory debunked or what or could it be more than one monster I heard rumors about on other sites?

    Heres kind of a scenerio I put together, some of you might have got this too first to pics they are all partying then the pic with the 2 girls. I think these 2 girls are seeing something coming at them or at a building then it hits the building which leeds to the next picture with all the smoke after the building collapsed. in another area, soldiars have already arrived and are leading people to safety which is the last pic (by the way, I think the soldiars arrived there too quickley. they must have known something before hand) this is something i just thought of off the top of my head hope it helps
  • dan
    Its the big screen version of Rampage, the monster arcade game. Where giant monsters drink shakes (slushos) and can throw fire, destroy buildings (the object of the game is to cause destruction), eat cheese (read comment 521) fight off other monsters like giant squid (comment 521).
  • Aftab Bali
    wow dan, that actually makes alot of sense, wow I can't believe no one thought of that nice theory man
  • L
    wow this is starting to get good guys... I love how this myspace and slusho thing are coming together... If you go to the myspace pages of the characters you really start to get a feel for these characters and get to know them.. I feel even more compelled to go to this movie now that I have checked all this out. It's cool that you see these supposed "people" online, and then in 5 months from now we will see them all being chased by a giant monster in the movie theater.. I think the whole slusho is the key to the backstory of this monster... We already have some idea.. We know the slusho drink has a secret ingredient that can cause someone to grow to enormous proportions.. This has got to be part of how the monster comes about.. Now all that is left is figuring out what the hell this monster looks like.. Maybe we will get some clues on another website that has yet to be found.. Until then I think these myspace accounts with new comments added daily can give us small clues to figuring out more about this question mark of a movie. JJ - if you're lurking around good job buddy. This marketing shit your pulling is great... Figuring out this puzzle is an awesome way to spend the rest of my summer. haha
  • bam
    #526 its not fucking rampage that would be so fucking retarded jj said we need OUR OWN monster if it was rampage it wouldnt be our own the monster is something god damnit how many times do we have to tell u guys that
  • H.P.
    Im with you bam. I too am sick of hearing about the same shit just because people can't read through. I can't count how many times Godzilla comes up. No originality. No over the top theories, I love reading shit like that not "oh I think It's Godzilla or Rampage or fucking Zilla or fucking Power Rangers" AND IT"S NOT VOLTRON!!! Those were all cool theories before we knew it to be an original concept!! The Comicon or NONCOMICON!! statement sealed that deal for me.
  • bam
    ppl shouldnt come on here posting "oh its rampage" "its godzilla" or "its voltron" UNLESS YOU HAVE PROOF CUZ LL OF US HAVE PROOF THAT SHOOTS DOWN ALL OF THOSE THEORIES and you guys have nothing to support ur own theories but we all who dont think its any of that and think its just and original monster have ALOT of information to back it up. so dont go postin shit like that unless u have proof
  • http://yahoo.com Bill
    Look, J.J. Abrams doesn't own the right 2 godzilla, so it's not a godzilla movie! I think it might just be a new monster, and it's probably original! So get over it!!!
  • Ripper
    Bam, H.P, I'm with you. People need to think about this shit logically and read all the stuff we all read and view all the websites we do. Insted of watching the teaser then saying "well goly i bet that there is godzilla, or rampage or telutubies.". So please unless you have somthing to contribute dont bother we have debunked ALL of the theroys you have thrown out. It is a NEW monster thats that...nothing else. All we can do is try to solve this massive, amazing puzzle JJ put together.
  • H.P.
    Bam, Ripper, myself. We need one more to make up the four horseman of cloverfield. I nominate kevin as the fourth. We shall spread our message far and wide. We shall talk about the clues that matter. I mean it's ok to joke and say it's shit like captain planet or denver the last dinosaur, but I hate these dead serious chumps who make stupid remarks. When I say stupid shit rest assure I am totally joking, but seriously it's gotta be Fing Fang Foom.

    I did some myspace investigation and found out some interesting things. Ok if you go to Jason's myspace page (/jj_hawkins) You will see a few comments.. If you click SNLfanForever's page ( http://www.myspace.com/snlfanforever ) you will see in her quote that she says, "Slusho Zooooomm" *Edit* - She actually changed it today.. But I swear yesterday it said Slusho Zoooom Now click on ameya's page : http://www.myspace.com/ameya0okayasu A couple things caught my eye here.. Under general she says: "I love old monster movies. You know, the ones with really bad special effects. I used to not like real scary movies that much, because I'm such a scardy cat, but now I'm warming up to them (as long as I'm with a bunch of friends when I'm watching it!). It's weird, though, because I've always loved scary books" Thought that was kinda interesting.. Also, under people i'd like to meet, she says this: "I kind of want to meet my mom's grandfather. He's the one who moved his family all the way from Hokkaido to America ... but after WWII and the interment camps he moved his family back to Japan. I bet he'd probably have some interesting stories ^_^ " Now, this one caught my eye because she mentions Hokkaido.. The SLUSHO site also mentions Hokkaido.. If you go to where the quotes from different people pop up, there is one that mentions Hokkaido.. I don't really recall the context of which Hokkaido is brought up, but i'm pretty positive that it is mentioned.. This brings me to believe that maybe Hokkaido Japan has some significance in the movie.. Just a thought.. :) This girl is also from New Yorklike the rest of them... Just thought these 2 profiles were interesting.. You guys should check them out and see if there is anything you can gather from them..
  • L
    That Ameya profile has another blog on it.. Things are starting to come together.. Here is the blog entry: "I feel like an idiot For having my original myspace deleted. I just found out that Saburo might get transfered back home ... I don't think he wants to get transferred so soon either. I think he's going to ask around to see if there's anyone else who'd like to go instead. He said something about some guy ... I forget his name ... who is obsessed with Japan - maybe he'd rather go? Either way, I have until the middle of January before the transfer actually happens. Maybe his superiors will change their minds?" Hmmmm!? Perhaps this has to do with Rob going to Japan?

    HAHAHA...H.P I love it!!
  • geezer
    wow... you people are pretty die hard in here.. but anyway, people should read atleast 10 other comments before they leave a comment themself. that way, you wont post something that has already been posted, or something that has been proven to be false or unrelated.
  • Phenox1707
    Hey Ripper and HP. If you need another, I'm in. Lol.
  • Matt
    I think Godzilla should be in the 4 horsemen, because he's definitely in the movie.
  • geezer
    one more thing. There is a rumor that the movie may be called "Overnight" which fits well sense the monster attacks new york over the night time period. i read about it on ign heres the link http://movies.ign.com/articles/809/809789p1.html its just a rumor though, and if somebody already posted this somewhere im sorry
  • H.P.
    Paramount releases alot of movies a year so I really wouldn't go on that info. Nice find though geezer. Also kudos to L with the myspace stuff. I do alot of posting at work and my work doesn't allow myspace navigating. As for Phenox1707, I got no problem with that if it's ok with Ripper and Bam. I think Kevin got scared away by all the idiots.
  • Phenox
    Yeah, I read through it, and it doesn't sound too likely to me. At least, I wouldn't name a movie of this scale "Overnight". It just wouldn't work in my opinion. Hey HP, if we're the Four Horsemen, shouldn't we do something to make that a bit more known? And I think we should come up with something else instead of "horsemen". I don't have any horses... xD

    haha sounds good H.P.

    so there wasnt a photo put up today?? how come?? i think i know. the first photo was posted on a thursday. then the 2nd and 3rd posted on thursday then they started posting them on friday. how many have been posted on fridays?? 3 soo im guessing the new photo is going to be posted tomorrow and then it will be every saturday know wat im saying?? or maybe they just stopped posting them who knows.
  • geezer
    im sure they're gonna put more photos up, that would be a sort of dissapointment if they just stopped posting photos, and today while i was at my asian friend's house, i thought of something . he had never seen the trailer to "cloverfield" before, and we were talking about it after we viewed it about 8 times, and he asked me when it came out, and i said january 18th, and he said (jokingly) "man we can probably go to laos and watch it by october" what he means is that alot of movies come out in asia before they come out in the usa, and i got to thinking... what if cloverfield has a release date of october or somethin in asia, and what if it has a whole different name than the u.s version, but then it hit me that the date 1-18-08 was on all of the website pics
  • Jwal
  • geezer
    also i discovered if you look right at the first explosion (not the earthquake) you can see dark red flames being spewed out, you can see it right before they show the fireballs in the sky, could it be the monster? maybe

    Check out my blog. I have figured out the title to this UNTITLED JJ ABRAMS film…..please read…. http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=199710262&blogID=295496865
  • Steve-O
    Blah, blah, blah.....you guys are gettign the best information, I mean the 4 horseman or 4 ewoks.....w/e, lol. I look at your posts first as they appeal the most to me...
  • Steve-O
    Yo nightowl, I didnt bother to read all of that on ur blog cuz I dont do myspace, but the title u guessed on intrigued me.
  • nick
    ppl plz read posts before u post something we aleady knew u could flip the pics
  • nightowl
    Steve-O...yeah man, It's just an educated guess but I feel it's a great one. Did you look at that D351 dude's page by any chance? His page offers up alot of clues. And did you happen to notice that it very well may be JJ Abrams himself?? Look closely... I have been really fascinated with this film so far. I've never ever researched such a film like this. Kudos to JJ Abrams for such a genius marketing campaign.....he has truly made this so much more fun!!
  • DoughFlow
    LATEST 1-18-08 News! I just heard from a friend who worked on the movie about all the details for the film. The monster is basically a giant parasitic grasshopper monster. It spawns from the sewers, the Hudson River ect. It spawns off eggs that hatch and grow. Apparently if your bitten by one, you implode pretty much. The movie isn't entirely cam-corders, though most of it is, it is also shot with a digital camera. They wanted to call the movie "monsterous" which is pretty lame, but someone had the copy-rights for it. They are still looking for a title. I don't know how into bug-monsters I am. Hopefully they can pull this one off but I just lost a little interest hearing that it looked like a grasshopper. I'm still excited though.
  • Dillon
    the monster is a parasitic bug. looks like a grasshopper. spawns off smaller eggs. the monster comes from the sewers and hudson river.
  • geezer
    nightowl, i saw that guys myspace and checked out his pics, he seemed to have alot of cthulhu stuff in his last few pics, made me wonder
  • nightowl
    Hey Geezer...totally man. I'm not saying it's definitely Cthulhu but there's an awful lot of references there....maybe it's Cthulhu plus another or more monsters/creatures? At this point, nothing should be ruled out. And did you look at the D351's pictures of himself? In only one does he show his hair while having that mask on...and it resembles JJ Abrams an awful lot....wouldn't you agree? I don't have all the answers but I feel that I'm getting somewhere....DYSTOPIA man....DYSTOPIA....
  • H.P.
    Ok I been talking Cthulhu since I got in here. As much as I want it to be Cthulhu (believe me when I say I am without a doubt the biggest LOVECRAFT fan). Abrams however said the monster would be original, but if you now about Lovecraft then you know that he didn't copyright the Cthulhu mythos. Basically J.J. could totally revamp the Cthulhu mythos keep the image of Cthulhu the same, but use a different name. That's really the only way it could be cthulhu. Refer to post #409 for one of my early Cthulhu theories. I'm still hoping it's a Lobo movie. The main man kicks total ass. LOL BAM PHENOX RIPPER H.P. "The Four Horsmen will ride till the end" 1-18-08
  • geezer
    it does look alot like abrams's hair nightowl, and dystopia would make sense for a good title, since you looked up what it meant, it fits perfect. i also looked up the chic's name who commented on his cthulhu pic, her name is arethusa, which means "mythical nymph", probably has nothing to do with the movie though
  • bigbobbo
    Alright everyone G4 announced that the monster is in fact cthulhu its not a parasite u made that up and the movie is probably gonna be called overnight.
  • bigbobbo
    so ur welcome
  • geezer
    when did g4 say it was cthulhu? if it was on the rumor mill before comicon, then its probably false, thats why the ycall it RUMOR MILL, and overnight is just a rumor too
  • nightowl
    The movie is going to be called DYSTOPIA. The meaning in Dictionary.com is this- 1. state in which the conditions of life are extremely bad as from deprivation or oppression or terror [ant: utopia] 2. a work of fiction describing an imaginary place where life is extremely bad because of deprivation or oppression or terror DYSTOPIA.........DYSTOPIA...........DYSTOPIA........... this is the tile of the JJ Abrams untitled movie.........
  • geezer
    hey nightowl and h.p you were right about your cthulhu theory, atleast i think, i found a vid on youtube that states that cloverfield is based on cthulhu. i saw this on tv when it aired but i never found the download for it. check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzfNQkwwT3c also i found some set videos if you haven't seem them yet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5xg2_EpStI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYwdI162feQ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFdCOIEg2Vg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lU_YE9P4UU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2a92ACM7O0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AH4bHGptByM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6Tzq_xbS9A and is that jj abrams with the hat on in part 3?
  • benos
    The monster's face is hidden in the fire. But i might be wrong.
  • bam
    omg thats the dumbest shit ive heared i watched that video and there is no fuckin monster comin out of that fire its just explosion just some of this has gotten to some peoples heads. there is no face in the fire
  • Steve-O
    yea, you can't see a monster anywhere in this trailer.........
  • dillon
    actually no, i know for a fact, i have inside information - the monster is a giant bug - similiar to the one in MIB, its not fuckin cthulhu - this is a rumor - it is 100% parasitic bug/ resembles a grasshopper...it spawns off babies who inturn grow and eat humans - its going to be stupid i think now - but i'll still give it a chance
  • geezer
    i can't imagine another giant bug movie
  • Dillon
    ya i know man - i was kinda dissapointed when i heard - when there was rumors about a giant lion that sounded more interesting ha
  • geezer
    lol, yea, lets just hope it looks bad ass and not all anorexic and shit
  • nightowl
    OK, think about it. If the movie was called DYSTOPIA, What sounds ten times better and would look ten times better than a giant parasitic type grasshopper looking monster?? CTHULHU. CTHULHU would look fucking awesome and a helluva lot creepier than any grasshopper like creature ever could try to be. But let's not forget, there may be more than one monster/creature. It could very well be this giant grasshopper monster and Cthulhu.......DYSTOPIA will suck if it's this giant grasshopper type monster...that's my opinion and it looks like everyone else is already bummed on even the thought of that.
  • geezer
    i think he's gonna re-image cthulhu, which makes him "new"
  • http://www.firstshowing.net Alex Billington
    I heard there was a rumor going around that there will be a new trailer in front of Stardust? Another one of Paramount's movies... but it's a rumor and it won't be confirmed until anyone sees it actually infront of Stardust... But this could be very interesting if it's true...
  • The Speculator
    Maybe the "lion" is a Griffen? There are claw marks on the back of the Statue of Liberty on the poster. But a Griffen isn't new.
  • geezer
    im pretty sure it's not a lion, and he says "its alive" not "its a lion"
  • L
    Dillon - Just where is this inside information coming from? Everyone is on a tight gag order, how exactly did you find this out?
  • nightowl
    Not saying that you are completely wrong but anyone that claims to have all this inside information should really be careful because everyone involved with the shoot has to sign confidentiality contracts and if they get caught slipping information, that's a major lawsuit and nothing they can do will save them because they signed the contract. So really Dillon, I could sit here and say the same types of things...I know someone because their grandpa's dog told me that it was a giant flying squirrel that drops turds on everyone.....cmon dude...you gotta come up with better shit than that....if you know so damn much, try shouting out a name of whoever told you. Then maybe we'll believe you instead of spewing BS. Until then, we won't believe you because you back your claims up without any hard, solid facts.
  • bam
    plz let drop the lion thing. its real old now the word lion shouldnt be brought up at all
  • geezer
    i agree with nightowl, you should give us a name of this person that told you what the monster is, a full name
  • H.P.
    I can see lots of bullshit got slung this weekend. Big thanks to bam for holding it down in here. Dillon your a waste of space in here. If you actually think a giant fucking grasshopper is cooler than Cthulhu you need to take those ipod ear buds off and wake the hell up. I don't know where you get your source, but what I can say for a fact is that you are a complete liar. Also pick a lovecraft book sometime. You might just learn what terror truly is. The Parasite could mean anything. We like to revamp Japanese stories, hell it could be based off the Parasyte manga for all we know. I just think a giant grass hopper would ruin this movie and I know everyone on here agrees.

Your wrong no question about it. Second, A giant grasshopper...are you fuckin joking. Not only would that be like a moive form the 50's and suck but JJ would be the laughing stock of the film industry if he claims to make something "As intense as Godzilla" and brings a fukin grasshopper out at the moive. Third, I dident see any monster in the smoke or by the fire.. a bright orange light behind the explosion yes but that could be just another fire ball, or the monsters eye either way would not help us any to know what color eyes it had so o well. FOUR HORSEMEN...Hell ya
  • Dillon
    obviously its not a giant fucking grasshopper - that was the description i was given just for an image - its obviously alien and going to look a lot different than a green grasshopper - its just bug-like - and secondly, i'm not that desperate for attention to the point where i would make up some bullshit to stir things up - and the reason i didn't give out the dudes name was strictly because of the contract, but nonetheless - you will all see when the movie comes out, and maybe it doesn't resemble a grasshopper that closely but thats the description i was given, i figure its similiar to the bug in MIB, just giant and probably tweaked a little - fuck the squid anyway thats lame pirates already did something of the sort
  • Ripper
    So I just watched all the youtube set videos...lots of guys beating the shit out of a car with a sledgehammer...not much else. The destroyed cars and rubble is nice but the videos did not show us anything that helps up in anyway. Ok videos but the guy shakes his camara to much, if he sticks around the set mabye he will eventually see somthing but i dout that JJ would let anyone close enough to anything important to give it away. I don't think it's an alien or i giant bug sorry i dont belive it. it's somethig that either we unearthed or made by mistake, Slusho holds the a key we have not found...i just got a feeling. Can anyone give me a hand in finishing the Slusho translation. I have got all but two symbols turned into japannesse lettering i need the ninth and tenth. This is what i have so far(ki fu da ke ja__na shi) in order. This is under you cant drink just six, it may be nothing but i just would like to know that it is nothing and not a sign we have right in front of us and are overlooking. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Howard Phillips
    Ok DILLON then what clues on the Slusho site support this grass hopper like alien being . I can't even believe you mention that MIB movie. MIB has got to be the worst comic book movie of all time, and the sequel is the second worst comic book movie of all time. If the monster even remotely resembles one of those stupid MIB aliens I will surely be disapointed. Maybe you want to paint a different picture description wise. I still can't believe you compared Cthulhu to the fucking squid people in those stupid fucking Pirates movies. Clearly you have an imagination problem. Cthulhu in no way resembles those pathetic squid people. Im getting so tired of all this bullshit. Abrams says we need our own monster, then what the fuck does he consider Cthulhu to be. Cthulhu is 100% American made. Dillon if your source turns out to be right then I will apologize to you. -The Four Horsemen- Wooooooooooo!!!!!!

    i've just learned that they don't eat the people, they infect them, either through biting or some sort of attack - but they quarantine the infected people, but apparently they just implode...i'm not saying i like MIB or Pirates of the Carribean i just don't have that much faith in movies now a days - it would just be typical to dissapoint us with a bug, i think i'd be interesting to be cthulhu..the more original the better..but i think its just a sad reality that its a bug-alien
  • H.P.
    Ok that was much better dillon. In the end I respect your opinion. As for this supposed trailer before Stardust all I can say is that my girlfriend is the assistant mgr at a movie theater, my good friend is the projectionist. I already gave him the word to look out for any trailers that come in marked Slusho, The Parasite, or Cloverfield(anything else out of place). I will let you guys know first hand. I usually preview the movies every Thursday/Friday morning. Soon as I get to work Friday morning I will let everyone know that way you guys don't have to pay for tickets and get disapointed when no trailer hits.
  • bam
    On 08/03/07 a second mysterious teaser trailer was reveled before special advanced screenings of the upcoming Paramount film "Stardust". The trailer appears to be a live news feed of a tv news crew filming in front of the Wonder Wheel on Coney Island when an unexpected explosion accures in the background, the news woman urges the crew to keep filming as they turn their camera in the direction of the explosion.A loud roar is heard but the source never seen but the camera does catch a flaming Wonder Wheel flying in the crews direction just before it blinks out. The film has no title and the trailer ends with the date of 01-18-08 then a "Roar" followed by the words "The Countdown Has Begun"
  • bam

  • Denisse
    YOu guys should really check this site out http://1-18-08news.com/ this guy is pretty damn close to what may be the truth and definitely a whole hell of a lot better than what a lot of you dipshits are coming up with. I'm totally going with this guys idea for an alien thats been living in the sea for a long time and gets awakened by the slusho drink. The secret ingredient in slusho was found in the deep sea. (per slusho.jp) anyway...just check this video out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKnJue5OcIM and the site.
  • Ripper
    Denisse, That guy is a moron. The only thing i found of intrest on that site is the 3 1-18-08 posters i had not seen before...torward the bottom of the page in the video the Final Clue. The posters are One- a guy standing in a rubble filled stone hand..or fingertips of the hand at least and it says RUN.FAST Two- A lady on a phone with cops around here in downtown new york saying RESIST..i belive. Three- A giant shadow looming over New York and it says HIDE. Other than that the web site tells us what we aready know...O he also thinks that the monster comes to get Slusho...thats what draws it to New York even though the drink originated in Japan. So take a gander but do not hope for much posters are the highlights unless you think the monster comes to drink some slushees. -The Four Horsemen-

    damn abrams is GOOD, he has you all so fooled, and I'm not even gonna BEGIN to say I know what it is cause then I'd be fooled! but one thing to realize is when LOST first came on, everyone thought it was about a monster on the island, in 3 seasons we average seeing that so called monster about 2-3 times per season, cause there is SOOOOO much more to do with that show and that island then the monster, JUST like this movie, whether related or not! also abrams likes to throw out false leads, half the movie would prob be ruined if we were able to figure it out before it's released so that is NOT gonna happen, to do so would be like claiming to fully understand religion and what happens in the after life, fun to think about and even stumble apon certain truths but until you die who the hell knows, until the movie is released who the hell knows, until lost comes to an end who the hell knows, personally, and yes you will all call me crazy, but I believe all 3 are connected!
  • H.P.
    Yeah did you figure that out from the Lost font used on the first teaser poster. We been through all this shit decker.

  • decker
    thanks HORSEMEN, great comment, unlike yourself I don't make rude remarks over a movie message board and I certainly didn't call anyone retarded, but think about it, who has EVER made an untitled movie before, my guess is that now that someone finally has, it will be quite difficult to just figure it all out, that is what abrams is all about, and my camparison to religion is not the movie but more so lost and the creativeness of abrams mind, and I'm just guessin that the movie (connected or not) will be the same type of thing to figure out, even once we begin watching it and probably even once finished... abrams is exactly what hollywood needs, someone to prove that there is MUCH, MUCH more then money and special effects to a good film! this one will make us think, it already has! I mean I've gotten through shifts of work talkin and tryin to figure out the mystery of lost, I've been late to work talkin bout it with the grandparents after droppin the kido off, and this is the kind of thing abrams gets off on, the fact that we all spend this amount of time tryin to make sense of it all, how many other movies or shows can do that???

I do think the two phenoms fed off of each other in perfect synchronicity and most likely will continue to do so. Therefore I have changed the title my blog. I am leaving the address the same so you can still find me. So there. http://ethanhaasthoughts.blogspot.com/

    In reference to post #606. I never called anyone retarded I was being sarcastic, and I never made any rude comments. I used some adult language, but that was it. I am truly sorry if I offended anyone. Im not knocking your "Lost" theory it's just been thought of in here. For whatever it's worth I am sorry if I offended you decker that is not the goal of this page, and I assure you The 4 Horsemen are way better than that. Howard Phillips Bam Ripper Phenox1707

    uhghhsfghsfgkhfgkljh cvp its not a voltron remake
  • dillon
    shits a bug
  • Howard P.
    Ok dillon I thought it was bug like. to quote dillon its obviously alien and going to look a lot different than a green grasshopper - its just bug-like - and secondly, i'm not that desperate for attention to the point where i would make up some bullshit to stir things up. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Ripper
    cvp...no its not a Voltron moive this has been confirmed through JJ's statments at comic-con as it will be an all origanl monster not a addaptaion or remake. He wanted to make us our own monster just as intense as godzilla. Dillon, I personally feel that JJ would not make this a lost related moive because to appreciate something completly new and original you would have to be able to stand back and say "Wow that was an amazing film" and not have to connect it with a TV show. If he wants to make this as remembered as Godzilla is and that famous he will most likely make this a stand alone project. Cause who wants there entire career played out through connections to a Tv show with slowly slipping ratings and a deeply complex story line. This is however just the thoughts that I have on the matter. -The Four Horsemen-

    Sorry for the hype on the new trailer, but my theater is not getting stardust. Can anyone tell me how legit slusho.org is. Bam, Ripper, and Phenox I need your opinions. There are a couple sites linked to slusho.org as well. We need to stay focused on slusho for now. Horsemen assemble!!!!!
  • geezer
    im suppose to go see rush hour 3 on friday, so i guess i could sneak into stardust and catch the preview, but it depends on how far apart the start of the movies are
  • decker
    yeah no prob HP, I just wanted to make sure ya understood I myself wasn't makin fun of anyone else's comments or anything, I think we'll all be quite pleased once we finally see this baby!
  • H.P.
    As you all might know Slusho.jp has some semi new stuff up. They mention the island of Hokkaido. The Island itself looks like the profile of a flying fish like monster with hind legs like a grass hopper. The slogan "Slusho is people" shows up often. Also you can make your own slusho drink using robots. -The 4 Horsemen-
  • Ripper
    Hey H.P. I dont know if that slusho.org is legit two of the websites at the bottom are false one is giving a public apoligy (that would be the website made from the letters of the licence plate in the trailer.). The other two are ones we know for fact are good, 1-18-08.com and slusho.jp.com. I dont know about his claim about the moive being based on the 1950's flick, but i dont know. It could have been were the idea for the moive originated, but other than that I dont think the moive would hold that storyline or monster, but a jumpoff for an original film...ya i can see it. The website all in all not legit just another speculation site, trailer is funny as hell thought. -The Four Horsemen-
  • memphisjay
    go to the website and flip the pics over 1-18-08.com dont forget who takes care of you love, jesus i'm gonna miss the hell out of you sincerely, the devil ethan haas = hate satan? maybe an apocalyptic movie film?
  • stevenash
    did anyone notice that on the back of the pcture that says, "don't forget who takes care of you" that "forget" looks like itis spelled "forpet" do you think its just the font or it was done on purpose? whats your thoughts?

  • H.P.
    I don't know what the fuck the three posts before me are talking about. Memphisjay where the hell do you see Jesus or Satan written on those photos. I think they are talking about Jason. Also ethan haas has nothing to do with cloverfield. The puzzle site was to market the upcoming epic roleplaying game Alpha Omega. Stevenash you double posted complete and utter crap. If you want legit clues go to slusho.jp. Also refer to my post #619, trust me on this one. Look closely at the island of Hokkaido on wikipedia. It very very closely resembles a horse, bird, fish, and frog hybrid from a profile stand point. Look at the head. It has the same miss shaped head as the horse on the slusho page. I could be going crazy, but it does make sense of the animal theme. Just check out the option called happy talk read all the quotes and eventually someone will mention hokkaido. All the animals say every quote eventually so Im sure whatever animal says the quote is not relevant. -The Four Horsemen-
  • stevenash
    This message is to The Four Hoursemen. Ok so I accidentally double posted a comment... so get the Hell over it, life goes on, and why are your post so angry??? We are all curious about this movie that is why we are all on here. I respect your comments and enjoy the information you are giving out but, The truth be told we are all just "guessing" what this monster is all about... and might not even know the answer untill the movie comes out, so can you just calm down a bit and please respect peoples posing on here. Thank you.
  • Ripper
    H.P. I agree with everything you just said about the posts before you. People please read all the comments before you feel the need to share you clues, guesses, and hypothosis on the moive. We do want to figure out what this moive is about and having to read the same things that we say are NOT fact, or remotely true just hinders us all in the advancement of solving this mystery. So please just read the posts before you say somthing some one else...or 15 other people had said before, Thank You. H.P. I will go check out the wiki site stuff in a bit and get back to ya. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Cowpatty Bill
    I think I read all the previous posts and do not believe I read this previously. I've been looking at the trailer and noticed a few things: 1. The explosion happens when they are on the roof but the Statue of Liberty's head doesn't going flying until they are on the street. What would the explosion be from? The poster indicates that the head was ripped off then the creature/monster went towards the city, unless the monster knocked the head off as it was heading back into the sea after destroying New York (which doesn't seem right to me) 2. Several have indicated the freaky looking face in the right side of the photo from 12:01A (or is it 12:31?). I believe this to be the girl seen 37 seconds into the trailer and again at 1:27. Not that this means anything but some seemed to think the face in the photo is out of place. 3. At time :27 in the video something that looks like a small clock can be seen in the background above the door way. It looks like it says the time is 11:15. 4. When the Statue of Liberty head rolls to a stop there is a sign on a pole. Spray painted on it is "Dead" something. I originally thought Dead End but it is not End, it's Dea....something. 5. When they are on the roof top running back through the door after the explosion, falling debris lights up the wall to the right of the door where what looks like 1987-2004 can be seen followed by some initials. Just some stuff to chew on.
  • geezer
    cowpatty bill, i noticed the dead end thing too, but it looks like it says "dead dead" which doesn't really make much sense. and as far as lady liberty's head goes... the monster had to rip off the head before he swam to the island and came up thru the gas line, because liberty's head flys towards the building at a certain angle, as if the monster is standing right behind the last visible building on the left.
  • bam
    hey sry ive been gone for a while. H.P. i looked at that slusho.org site ehhhhh it looks prett false to me just looks like some fan who wants every one to believe his teorie :P
  • H.P.
    Stevenash, Im not a hateful person in anyway. If my posts seem hateful then it's because I'm very passionate about this movie, and when I hear crap like "I think it says forpet and not forget" I go mad. Tell me how your investigating can even hold a candle to the Horsemen, and I wont give you shit. Come up with something constructive and I will praise you. I mean I don't expect you to read every single comment, but it wouldn't hurt to read the last fifty or so. That way you have a good idea of just how serious we are, and if you plan on sticking around I would pick a time where you have nothing to do and just go through all the posts just like ripper suggests that way you can feel our pain. Trust me I wan't everyone to have fun and not get frustrated when they can't get new and interesting info. -The 4 Horsemen-
  • Ripper
    Cowpatty Bill, Thank you for reading the posts. As for your post... 1.It's possible that the explosion was from the monster when at the statue of liberty. It could be more than one monster (I don't really belive thats the case)...but geezers post is a possibility to there is no way to know that untill the moive or we have more trailers, cause there is nothing in the teaser that could give us that awnser all we can do is speculate. 2. It may be the girl from the trailer but i dout either way that her picture holds any relevence, she is just a guest at the party. 3.The clock does read 11:15 i belive that is the actual time in the moive, because the pics on 1-18-08 and the trailer show everything is cool till 12:30. 12:32 is what time the news stations says it is on the trailer. So the first intial "shake" is at 12:30-12:31, its hard to tell how long the party is going on before hand because of time lapse of the camera. 4. The sign by the head of Liberty, I saw that to but as geezer said it looks like dead dead to me. 5. That may be somthing but i dout it. The 1987-2004 ace on the wall yes that is what it says. 2004 is not Zoom as some thought. Stevenash...no it's not forpet H.P. is right. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Cowpattybill
    Also, http://www.1-18-08.com/photos_8.swf gives you the same photos but smaller. I tried different combinations (like photos_7.swf, etc) but couldn't get anything else to come up. I found this out when I looked at the source for the website (View>Source). When you type in http://www.1-18-08.com/images you get a Forbidden message but not a Page cannot be found message indicating that the directory does exist. If anyone could figure out the name of an image that might be in that folder then perhaps something could be pulled up. I've tried many things but nothing so far.
  • Cowpattybill
    One more thing has been bugging me. Again it may have been stated already but I didn't see it. One the website, the photo marked 12:04A. There is something above the blond girls head. I don't know if she is holding it or not. I thought it was upside down but it's not. The last 2 letters are HD and the style of the letters reminds me of High Definition. I don't know what it is though. Ripper and geezer, thanks for your input. I agree with what you both say. I don't know if anything I mentioned was a clue but I thought they were interesting enough to mention.
  • moviebuff
    I found this site when my friend told me there was this movie Trailer that I HAD too see, don't get me wrong the movie lookks like it will be great, but why is everyone trying to figure this thing out, whats wrong with just waiting untill the movie comes out or until there is a Trailer that gives more reliable information. Everything that I am reading on here sounds interesting and everyone seems to be doing alot of research but in actualality no one REALLY knows anything and all these "clues" could just be used to throw everyone off.
  • Ripper
    H.P. I must be losing it to cause i can see the fish and the donkey head in the island, im doing some research on the Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Falut lines, and Winter climate around there...got a hunch. Cowpattybill that is a handy little tool to view them all at once did not have that thanks...As for the Images and the Forbidden message. I belive that the reason you are getting that message is because it DOES exist but we wont be able to access them till the whole 1-18-08.com is open, because they own the domain name and just have not opened the website to us even though it is created or being created. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Cowpattybill
    Ripper, if there was picture in the images folder called ripper1.jpg and I typed in http://www.1-18-08.com/images/ripper1.jpg it would pull up the picture even though the folder itself is forbidden. It is forbidden to view the contents of the folder but if you knew the exact path of a file within the folder it will pull it up. T This doesn't mean that there are any files in the folder but we do know the folder exists. moviebuff, "why is everyone trying to figure this thing out," --- because it's fun.
  • Ripper
    Cowpattybill, That would be HD for High Definition and it is from a camera that the pic is taken with.
  • geezer
    hey moviebuff, the reason why everyone is looking for clues on this movie is (in my opinion) the fact that jj abrams himself said that there are lots of clues in the traier and the two official sites. even though it's an original movie, it could still have simularities or links to a previous movie, or something in japanese culture etc. and THAT is why we search =)
  • bam
    """"They mention the island of Hokkaido. The Island itself looks like the profile of a flying fish like monster with hind legs like a grass hopper"""" H.P. where did u see that on the site i cant fidn it : / -The Four Horsemen-
  • H.P.
    Just search the island on wikipedia, they show you the map images and satelite images.
  • geezer
    on the 5th image it kinda looks like a sting ray
  • Ripper
    Ok this is what i have found interesting about the island og Hokkaido, this consists of climate patterns, Volcanoes, Earthquakes and the path the monster would most likley travel if it came from there. Hokkaid? is known for its cool summers and icy winters. The average January temperature ranges from ?12°C to ?4°C (10°F to 25°F) depending on elevation and latitude. The island tends to see isolated snowstorms that develop long-lasting snowbanks, in contrast to the constant flurries seen in the Hokuriku region. During the winter, passage through the Sea of Okhotsk is often complicated by large ice floes broken loose from the Kamchatka Peninsula. Combined with high winds that occur during winter, this brings air travel and maritime activity almost to a halt on the northern coast of Hokkaid?Aside from numerous earthquakes, the following volcanoes are still considered active last eruption in 2001. · Mount Koma · Mount Usu and Showashinzan · Mount Tarumae · Mount Tokachi · Mount Meakan An earthquake of magnitude 8.0 struck near the island on 2003-09-25 at 19:50:07 (UTC). In 1993, an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 generated a tsunami which devastated Okushiri, killing 202 If the monster originated in japan,IF being the keyword here, then the path it would have to travel to get to New York is as follows. Start-Heads up to the Bering Strait to to the Beaufont Sea through the Viscant Melville Sound, down to Lancaster Sound, countinuing to the Fury and Hecia Strait to the Foxe Basin through the Hudson Strait, through the Gulf of Boathia to the Labrador Sea down the North Atlantic Ocean to New York ity. So there you have it you decide if the monster would/could do that to get to New York. That is all i have at this moment regarding Hokkaid? Island. So Horsemen do you think it could be awakened by an earthquake or volcanic eruption? Mabye the slusho people mined to deep in the sea and caused the earth to react...but this is all speculation and what i had decided to serch on today. If this does not hold any water or we think it improbibale then at least we can dismise that Hokkaido has to much to do with the monster...unless i missed somthing. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Ripper
    Sorry about that my computer went fuckin crazy on me just look at the first one.
  • Cowpattybill
    I read in a post somewhere that the picture on the website of the 2 girls looking up in horror is actually the same girl with her face photshopped in half. I didn't believe this so I took the photo (I don't have any nifty tools like photoshop so I used Microsoft Paint) and did a screen print, pasted it into Paint and copy pasted the image into one face and I gotta say, it looks like is certainly does appear to be the same girl. Particulary the teeth visible in the mouth. Isn't that odd? I wonder if any of the other pictures do that.
  • Cowpattybill
  • H.P.
    I think it looks like Lisa Bonet or even Shannyn Sossamon.
  • H.P.
    Holy shit Ripper your post came out of nowhere. WE FUCKING GOT SOMETHING HERE HORSEMEN!!!!!!!!!
  • geezer
    the pic of the girl you put together cowpattybill looks like a still frame of the girl at 1:29, just a diff angle
  • Cowpattybill
    I agree with you geezer. It is the same girl. I was thinking about that already and had concluded that they are the same. Maybe the picture was taken at the same time as that point in the trailer but in the picture it looks like she had been crying (her eyeliner or eyeshadow or whatever is smudged).
  • Phenox1707
    Okay, I'm getting a bit caught up here. Ripper may be onto something, but I can't tell at the moment. First, I would like to know exactally how it can be proven that the Slusho people have to do with the waking of the monster. I'm not saying it can't happen, but I'm not sure how it possibly could. I'd also like to know if it has been proven that Slusho is related to the movie. Again, I'm not too sure myself, and this information would be greatly appreciated. Second, Can anyone, most likely Ripper, create some sort of diagram on that path? It would help us all greatly if we could get a visual. Thank you. Phenox1707 -The Four Horsemen-
  • geezer
    this is gonna sound extremly retarted but... if you take h.p lovercraft's name and mix it around, you can get two of the 4 production names for 1-18-08. the first one is clover, as in "cloverfield" and the other one is craft, and if you replace the c in craft with a k, you get kraft, as in kraft CHEESE. and cheese is a production name found on a cloverfield set a few weeks ago http://bp0.blogger.com/_wvoLtwni0kc/RroAuNKIEJI/AAAAAAAAKbg/ehUfO8Fl-94/s1600-h/08_jjabramsending_zoom.jpg
  • H.P.
    Yeah geezer I actually already found that connection, but thought I was the only one who noticed. As far as a Cthulhu/lovecraft connection, I think it's just the idea that the monster is alien and sleeps at the bottom of the ocean. Phenox SLUSHO IS PEOPLE brotha. Also the whole am I a whale buisness on slusho I think is trying to say the monster is part mammal and not a fish. Sorry phenox this is all I'm running off. Have you checked out the map of Hokkaido it is possibly the profile of the monster. You can even make out the fin the frog like legs the wings and the horsehead. It's very fucking strange and I'm getting creeped the fuck out. Just refer to horsemen post#624 and#642 or just wiki Hokkaido. Also have you made your own flavor with the robots yet. Check out the store option. Watch closely as the charcters model t shirts and hats. Zoom in on the monkey's shit and.............What the fuck, theres a tail behind the slusho cup. Possibly another clue as to what else this fucking thing is, but one thing is for sure this thing is one crazy hybrid. -The Four Horsemen-
  • geezer
    oh ok, good, its not that retarted soundin' after all. and did you get to see the newest set videos?
  • H.P.
    which videos geezer. I don't watch much you tube.
  • geezer
    nooneimportant77 has a new videe of the set on youtube, it shows rob (bloody and bruised) and his girlfriend lily hiding under an overpass in central park while bricks and other debris start to fall on them and they're saying their lines, and nooneimportant stated that he thinks he heard rob say "there's one up there" and if hes correct it could mean that there is more than one monster. also in the video you can see that all of the cameramen have standard pro cameras instead of consumer cams or any other type of regular cam corders. which made me think of a new diagnosis. (diagnosis>>)the movie starts off with rob and lily running in panic to find a place to hide, they find the overpass and sit for a while and say their lines while the bricks fall etc. and then the overpass collapses and kills them. and the next scene is in the morning when the soildiers are searching for survivors and bodies etc. and thats when one of the soldiers finds the camera and then the rest of the movie picks up there. but i dont know, what do you think?
  • nightowl
    OK...I have been silent for the past several days or so and I have been sitting back and digesting everyone's thoughts and ideas. Some of you get really pissy with other's comments if it isn't geared towards something you think this movie may be or if it had already been posted or if you think the idea is stupid etc etc...well, this is what I think- I think everyone has the right to their own thoughts and opinions and investigations into what this movie is and what the monster may be, the title, who's playing in it, etc etc etc...and really, nobody knows shit at this point so we should all really take every single idea into account and never discount anything. Why tell someone they are full of shit for saying what they think something could be when really, none of us know anything for a 100% fact. The way I see it, anyone claiming to know an insider and just spouting things very well could be misguiding the crowd on purpose or just stating things to gain attention, exposure, mess with people etc etc etc. Chances are this, if this person says they know information because they know an insider but then they can't say anything becasue they'll get in trouble, then it's BS. Becasue being an Independent filmmaker myself, I know of these contracts that they make you sign and these companies have complete right to sue the living shit out of you if you say a damn thing...so really, do you think someone really would risk getting sued up the ass by telling a friend what they know so their frind can come on a message board and spout off about knowing info?? Cmon guys...if anything, this person is part of the whole gameplan and they are either doing two things....giving us all just a few clues to add to our investigative fuel, or they are completely tossing a wrench into the system.....so you can't automatically believe all this stuff. FNORD people, FNORD...I explained this in an earlier post.....Don't be a robot...especially a BAD ROBOT..hahhaa.. and or media zombie if you will, and instantly believe something just because you saw it on YOUTUBE, read it message from someone that claims they know an insider etc etc...we have to think outside of the box everyone...look elsewhere and the clues will start to show up. And we have to work together on this...and not against eachother.....consider it just like the movie will most likely play out....the people that survive will be the people that think on their feet, band together and help on e another, not the people that look out for themselves, talk shit about everyone else and instantly dog on people for sharing their ideas. Those people ultimately don't make it far in the real world anyhow, and they most likely wouldn't make it in the movie...so let's work toegther on this and figure the damn thing out. I really believe that each person has contributed valid arguments in certain things that may be true of the film. But I truly feel that there are a lot of things be it websites, messages from certain peeps that claim things as knowing inside info, personal emails sent to us from people that claim they know things...that are purposely meant to mislead us...to throw us far off the breadcrumb trail because if all of us could easily figure this out and everyone knew every exact detail about the movie....what's the fucking point of watching it? Where's the mystery and fun of it? There wouldn't be any so chances are, we will be able to figure some things out but there will be much that we will never ever find out...until we see it on that very 1-18-08. Has anyone ever seen the 1982 movie John Carpenter's THE THING? This is very close to what's going on here on this message board. In the movie, they are in Antarctica and this THING shows up and it's able to completely replicate all living things be it a human, dog etc and as time goes on, this THING starts to replicate the crew...and before you know it, nobody knows who's real and nobody trusts anyone and they are all out there in the middle of fucking freezing nowhere and they are all basically fucked for lack of a better word. Nobody believe's anyone else or has trust in anything...becasue they may be one of those THINGS completely replicating whoever and purposely misguiding all of them to kill them, keep it's very life in survival and hoping to make it to some type of mainland to ensure that it can keep replicating everything in it's path to take over earth and survive......so really, who's to say that I really know anything at all...and I'm not someone that is working on this...or know someone that is working on it etc etc...so really guys...we need to stick together and help eachother out.... I'm trying to think of this thing in a more REAL and LOGISTICAL way. It's just my approach. I obviously know that such a monster/creature/alien etc etc is not real but there could be tons of real and logistical ways that this thing is moving about and trying to complete what it's main goal is. First off, the YOUTUBE video of the guy that claims someone emailed him a bunch of clues is cool but I think it's also misleading in many ways....I think that everyone that has butted in and gave clues only gives some actual clues but also throws in some things to completely get us off our path...it's all on purpose so be very wary guys and gals. But this kid specifically mentions that someone names Desmodeus sent him the email.. If that's the case, then it's the D351 guy that I've been talking about that has some serious clues on his myspace page...from his blogs to his pictures, this guy has seome very strong ties to this film. And as a matter of fact, I've said this before and I'll say it again...this D351/Desmodeus guy very well could be JJ Abrams himself....In every one of his pics the guy is wearing a mask and you can't see his eyes either. You can't see his hair except in one picture and it's very JJ Abrams hair like. Who's to say that this isn't JJ himself?? I'd almost put money on it that it is..... So, how about this theory. With global warming really heating up the earth and the polar ice caps melting as fast as they are, maybe this beast isn't from Japan at all...but it was somehow frozen deep underneath the ice caps and with the melting and global warming, the creature/monster/alien is woken up and for some reason( unknown at the moment) it decides or ends up in NYC. But this thing could very well have been an alien that landed here centuries and centuries ago and was frozen deep in the polar ice caps. And it happens to be amphibian like so that would explain why nobody saw any type of alien arrive...because it was already here and that would explain why it's in the water becasue it's amphibious like.....like a froig or whatever....I'm telling you, check out the D351's pics and all the pics with CTHULHU with this SARGEANT FROG character is interesting. They are both in the same pic together quite a few times...so this is important. It's not saying that CTHULHU is the creature...I think it means that this thing is alien and it's creature/monster CTHULHU like in the way it may look and be terrifying and destructive and also it's amphibian FROG like so it can swim and come out of the water as well..... And my thoghts on why it ripped thehead off the statue of liberty is simply this. It is this huge entity...huge creature/monster/alien and it comes across something that's equally it's size or comparable......and it sees the Statue of Liberty as a challenge. So it thinks that the Statue of Liberty poses a threat and decides to attack it, fight it etc etc....so this thing has animal instincts perhaps...because anything animal like would most likely do the same thing...either fight it or run away from it. And it obviously tears Liberty's head off so it most likely felt it beat or killed or won this battle or rid itself of this possible threat. If it didn't look at it as a threat, then don't you think it would've just completely demolished the whole damn statue from head to toe? So maybe this thing isn't just about destruction perhaps...but definitely after something specific? I don't know what of course but let's work on some of this...So, if this thing has offspring or eggs or whatever the hell could run around and attack us humans, there might be a great chance that that's how most humans will end up....headless. These are just guesses of course but educated ones..... And I'll stick to what I think the title is...and my educated guess behind it is this- it's called DYSTOPIA......it's got a certain ring to it....DYSTOPIA...DYSTOPIA....DYSTOPIA...... I think that may be it for now...If I missed something or come up with anything else then I'll be sure to post it.....thanks everyone!

  • nightowl
    Oh and a few other quick things I just thought of or missed.... The Staue of Liberty could easily have just been left alone, which really makes me think this thing looked at the huge Statue of Liberty as some sort of threat......and the fact it tore the head off...that makes me think something as well..... Maybe this thing tears the heads off of us humans and that's how it plants it's eggs.....inside our bodies and they become us perhaps? SLUSHO is people? Sort of like a replicating THE THING movie theme here perhaps....and the SLUSHO is the eggs maybe? And why would this thing pick NYC perhaps? If it is underwater and it is in the polar icecaps or awakend somehow from a deep cold underwater sleep...why pick NYC? Why would it travell from Japan to NYC? It could easily pick a closer region.....it may have been underneath NYC the whole damn time? or close to it perhaps? Maybe it's attracted to the most light....like a BUG would be....or noise perhaps? NYC at night is really fucking noisy...and it's really fucking noisy during the day or really fucking noisy period....and maybe it was following the most noise from underneath and it happened to be NYC making the most racjet? and it's very very lit up....if this thing has any type of bug characteristics, it may be attracted to all the light.... Just a few more thoughts for everyone.....

    amen nightowl. but what i heard about the monster ( which is probably not true) is that the monster will supposedly wake up from a "deep sleep" and if thats the case, then the monster is probably just horrified of the drastic changes in new york. like say he's been in his trance for millions or billions of years and he's just now awakeing to these giant buildings and statues and millions of other unknown creatures running all over the ground, so in reaction to this (like you stated) he feels like he needs to defend his self or get rid of the things that he feels threatend by

    ok heres some good stuff i found not 100% sure if its real but its well worth checkin it out SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERTTTTT came home to check my email this evening and I got this email from some one who "says" they've worked on the 1-18-08 set and overheard dialogue. Who knows if this is bogus or what, but here's her copied email below. What do you make of it: Dear Brad, My name is Betty Barsuglia. I was working in the make-up department for 1-18-08. i say was because apparently I was thought to disobey my "leaking" release and after tonight have been suspended from being on set when actual shooting is occurring. I am in a bit of rage right now. I was on set without identification tonight near central park south. This is where they were shooting..and was suspended. I am also a huge fan of this movie and although I work on it they they don't tell crap to anybody. I am recently getting started in the business and was happy to get the job. Tonight though I was lucky enough to hear dialogue and although i have been on set 2 times before the dialogue was rather useless. Last time I brought my recorder and thats why i think this time they figured i was tattling. Well now I am. you can take this info however you'd like but below is dialogue from 1-18-08 and it seems very crucial to the plot. I am still amazed but also still pissed. i will probably regret this in the morning. Hope this helps. This is what I recorded tonight at round 11:00pm. Rob: Look it is not the simple.Look this guy who was handling the American account,the Englishmen Algar Macy for Mr. Akira Masa. supposedly went on some sort of expedition to find a way to produce it here. Like some hands on shit to make it nice and catchy. And after 2 days sailing out they didn't hear from him. Nothing. They sent coast guard and these stupid assholes found nothing. Jason: Fuck that man what does that have to do with anything? Rob: Cause he didn't disappear Jason. They found the boat on the coast of Hangzhou in China with claw marks in it. Fucking claw marks. And and and...thats why I was so late to the party tonight. They told me a few days ago he was fine and today- Beth: Today what?! -they begin to push argue and almost fight Rob: Stopppp let me finish! Today I met with Mr. Masa. He told me it was this thing. they've looked into it for years. Supposedly it was this squid, giant squid that was larger than anything they've seen. They detected it on radar in england, and most recently in the Bering sea, and here, everywhere, but people kept pushing this thing off. I didn't really understand him but it's something with the genes.Its- Jason: Its what, What Robby. Fucking Godzilla. Sum nuclear lizard-squid that killed Jamie. Rob: No its worse than that. Has something to do with metagenomics and microbial organisms. Instead of separating these strains of bacteria linked to these hosts. Because the pressure was so intense, that of like some fucking black hole. So it linked to these giant squids causing mutations and refinements in DNA amplifications. Jason: This thing looks nothing like some big fucking squid. Those tentacles ripped into that building like it was some fucking pudding pop, besides that though- Rob: I know. The claws, The head. It especially wasn't dumb.Thats why I think it hosted on something else. Maybe binded with something that we thought was extinct or just something else. Before I left he let me know that all that Bermuda Triangle shit. Everything you've read about, Leviathan, Kraken, Atlantis, even that book we read in Mrs. Harper's class in high school. All that shit was because of this thing. Its the reasons all these people disappeared. Its the reason all around the world its formed myths about the different events that couldn't be explained. I would have never believed it and now its- They cut and began to organize rubbled near the south side of the park near 59th street. so after reading that wat does it tell us??? 1. this movie is most likely R 2. Rob and who ever he is talking to knew wat was goin out at the party cuz he says up there """And and and...thats why I was so late to the party tonight. """ so this is happening after the explosion 3. its some mutaded sea animal or alein thing. also betty bersuglia is an actual make-up artist u can search on imdb for her

    Well, if the dialogue is true, the movie sounds less interesting to me. That's some complicated explaining going on there. Although, in the beginning it sort of sounded like some creature that may have been created by Slusho but then later it says it was around for centuries. Perhaps it was discovered when they found the secret Slusho ingredient. I'm not holding my breath that the dialogue is real but I see nothing to indicate that it's not. At first I thought that was a lot of script for her to memorize but then I remember she said that she recorded it. Maybe she can save the recording somewhere and link to it so we can all hear.
  • bam
    i'll ne glad if the monster has nothing to do with slusho ithink that would be kinda retarded if the monster came from drinking a slurpy drink -The Four Horsemen-
  • geezer
    your pretty lucky bam, i wish i would get an email from a member of the 1-18-09 crew =( lol
  • Cowpattybill
    I had another theory I wanted to throw in the pond and see if it floats. There has been discussion in various places as to whether there is 1 or more monsters/creatures. I read somewhere that someone overheard dialogue during the filming of a scene in a park where a guy and girl are huddled down and debris is falling on their heads. The person thought he/she heard one of them say something like "I think there's one up there". This seem to indicate there might be more than one creature. My theory is that perhaps it is a pregnant female monster and once in the city gives birth to baby monsters that then tear up the city looking for food, either human or otherwise.
  • Smart
    alright thats good thinking cowpattybill but do u really think that a baby monster would be able to tear off the head of the statue of liberty?
  • Smart
    O one more thing remember I saw it its alive its huge? ITS HUGE PEOPLE!!!!!!!
  • geezer
    we're pretty sure that the main monster (the mother if she is pregnant) tore off the head of lady librety smart
  • smart
    All im saying is that i doubt theirs gonna be babies i mean come on if they had babies it would be exactly like the godzilla movie!
  • geezer
    yea, it would, but jj abrams DID say that we need our own godzilla. which could mean babies, sequals, monster enemies, the whole 9 yards
  • Cowpattybill
    Wow, there sure are alot of people doing an awful lot of researching, thinking, deciphering, brainstorming etc because of this movie. Alot of creative juices are flowing. If all this collective brain power was concentrated on world issues we would have resolved world hunger and be well on our way to tackling global warming by now. Amazing.
  • nightowl
    Whoever this matt dude is, you can just take your negativity and scram bud. All of us together will figure this thing out eventually..... And this Betty Barsuglia, yes, she very well may be on the set or a makeup artist but with the 'leaking' release contract she talks about, I highly doubt she would just talk about it like this especially after she just got shit canned for possible leaking. Trust me, this is a huge lawsuit and if she was really dumb enough to post this and attach her name on it(which it looks like she very well may be that dumb) then that's a nail in the coffin for sure. But, who's to say she's not fibbing a little. I really think that they have this whole marketing/advertising campaign figured out to the T. That team in conjunction with JJ Abrams is monitoring us and watching all of us to see how far we are getting.....and then someone happens to just email one of us with some more clues to either screw us up or help us. I really think that this Betty girl did not get shit canned but rather, she was told to send an email out to one of us...that's my thoughts on that.
  • smart
    thats a good point but think of it do u really think that a bunch of people would want to see a movie following up godzilla?
  • Matt
    Actually, I think I'll stay. It's pretty hilarious to see the self-proclaimed 4 horsemen of in the same boat as the rest of us, shut everyone's theories down like they have any idea what this movie is outside of what all the rest of us have seen. Keep telling yourself that all of you will figure this out before they actually tell us what to figure out. Sure, maybe I'm a pessimist, but the rest of you are way too optimistic. What they want us to figure out, we will figure out...when they tell us. Thinking that any one of you is going to find some secret site that will give you any information beyond that is simply retarded. So thanks "bud".
  • Iknowwhatitis
    If you google "A Beast from 20,000 fathoms" you will see that is remarkably similar to this unnamed movie. I believe Abrams got his idea from watching this 1953 classic film...but I could be wrong.
  • Cowpattybill
    I believe you are likely right Matt. Personally, I would like to think that a group of us, putting our heads together, might be smarter than JJ and his group. He gives us a puzzle to figure out and drops a few bread crumbs here and there to help or mislead us. We take those crumbs and work with them and at the same time look for other nuggets of food (information) that he didn't know he dropped. Therby turning a light snack from jj into a full course meal at his expense. Sorry, I'm into metaphors today.
  • geezer
    you make tupac look like a 3rd grade teacher cowpattbill, bravo on that one
  • bam
    iknowwhatitis ya maybe jj got insperation from it but thats also how godzilla got started from that movie. and that email i posted it WASNT emailed to me i said its something I FOUND and im not saying i think its true or false i was simply just posting it for every one els to see what they think about it.
  • Matt
    No apologies...I'm a fan of the metaphors. As a writer, I can say that while as a group we may be smarter than JJ and his group and can probably say that a few of us (yes, I'm including you 4 horsemen) are probably smarter than them individually. That is evident from all of the deeply complex theories that are appearing on this board. The problem is that brains has nothing to do with it. Take the book that I'm working on now. If I wanted to drop some hints about it, I could and give people something to chew on (now I'm getting hungry) until it is actually published, but unless I'm a lousy drunk or have some kind of mental disorder, there is a slim chance that I will say something that gives the whole story away. It's the same way with this movie. We (officially) have a trailer, a website with pictures of people first at a party and then in panic, and possibly some My Space pages that would only give us insight into the characters and not the monster plot. While interesting, it doesn't matter how many times we look at it. We're just not going to be able to stumble across the creative thinking of the director, writers, and producers. We may get a few pieces right here and there, which we still won't find out until we see the movie, but I'd say there is slim to no chance that we'll be celebrating figuring the whole thing out on our own. Hell, it was said in an interview that one of the biggest clues is the monster's roar and we haven't even nailed that one down yet. I'll agree that the hunt is a good way to occupy our time, though I suck at these things (eg. The Lost Experience). It just aggravates me when instead of a theories board this turns into a "this group is on top of it and the rest of you are dumbasses" board, when in actuality we all have the exact same information and can only theorize based on that. So until the movie is out or JJ gives up and just tells us the whole thing, then Grasshopper poster, squid poster, Cthulu poster(s), and Lost poster(s) all have valid points.
  • Smart
    I want to let u know about that dialogue fits perfect description for CTHULHU but dont jump all over me for saying it i was just tellin u it fits the description of it!
  • Ripper
    Matt, I belive that you must be a negitive person because you feel excluded from the circle and you have nothing to contribute, so you say mean things to get attintion. Why don't you try to help insted of cause problems by insulting The Four Horsemen, we call our selfs that because we have been on here figuring it out since the beggining and we dive deep into info and serch relentlessly to find awnsers. We don't just shut everyone down we welcome real clues and others that are intersted in figuring this out. Lately every person on this website that is really trying to crack this is going into overdrive and pulling up lots of good stuff so keep it up we can beat this puzzle.Cowpattybull awsome metaphors like the info to. Nightowl, geezer..killin keep that shit commin. Iknowwhatis i checked that out throught another post link on this site and i came to the same conclusion as bam. It may have been the jump off point for the moive i belive that. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Howard Phillips
    Matt, your a smart guy. I think there is a misunderstanding of the Horsemen however. We are not bullies we are not big shots, but I will tell you that we do come up with in depth theories based on valid clues. I personally do not run off you tube or any other misleading sites. I stick to the official stuff like slusho. Stuff JJ himself has admitted is actual sites. I do believe he hired people to mislead us in very complex ways. This is just the beginning. I love a mystery and that's why I'm here. I created the Horsemen based off who I thought was doing the best job in here at an early stage in the game. We are the true fanatics of cloverfield, and I just felt we were nailing the clues in a way that gets other people in here thinking. I respect everyones theories aside from the few really wasteful comments. All I can say in closing is that I just got this gut feeling about the island of Hokkaido and I'm not budging on my current theory, bam I know you hate the slusho idea but you gotta admit it is pretty fucking original. -The 4 Horsemen-

    Bam, That letter sounded pretty good if its true than that strengthins my thoughts that he traveled through the waterways i put in order (post #642). Matt i can see the way you think it is true yes. I to am a writer and the ideas have to come from somewhere because you and i both know unless you use the space alien excuess you have to come up with a place of origin and a travel path for the monster to reach New York or it will be picked apart by eveyone. You have to make your reasons solid...or at least belivable. There is a way to beat this and to figure out what the monster is...this i belive because i belive in all the minds at work here. I respect your thoughts and opinons, help us figure this out and we will know if your completly right or not.

  • Cowpattybill
    In scanning other message boards I found an interesting entry on July 11th. I don't remember where it was though: " What's up with Rob? by Rosencrantz Guildenstern (glass_radical) at July 11th, 2007 (02:19 am) Alot of people over at Unfiction have been taking about the way Rob acts in the trailer. And its not without speculation, Rob does kinda act (IMO) like he has a big secret, or that something he's been dreading is actually happening. Also, there is a girl, not sure which one, that acts seemingly like Rob, less "WTF" and more "Uh-Oh". My questions also apply to the cameraman, who says nary a word during the incident. Is this Slusho related? Why is he going to Japan? Why does he act so paranoid while everyone else is seemingly in "WHA?" mode? Why isn't the camera man freaked as well? Why am I still awake, talking about this? " This seems to jive with the dialogue email from Betty Barsuglia (post 663 above). Rob seems to have some knowlege of whatever this is before he gets to the party. When the chaos goes down he acts strangely compared to others around him because he already knows something. It fits!!
  • Matt
    Ripper, you are the puzzle master. You cracked my enigma like an egg shell and it only took one post. You are absolutely right that I feel excluded from a group of people that have contributed absolutely nothing substantial beyond what JJ and company gave us directly. Oh, what? You found a wikipedia entry for an island mentioned on the slusho site? And it gave you a bunch of volcano names and climate information? Awesome!! Now we know that the monster came from somewhere and felt some kind of temperature. But hold on a sec...I think you're really onto something with the possible route the monster takes to New York. It really sheds a spotlight on the whole plot. Would the monster go this way? Phenomenal question!! We figure that out and we can blow this whole thing right open! For the record, I was trying to help, by letting you know that this game is never going to provide the level of satisfaction that you are expecting from it. Did you play the Lost Experience last year or hear about it at least? Same type of scheme and it ended in the most unsatisfying way possible, by revealing absolutely nothing pivotal. The people involved with this movie know that the best selling point they have is the mystery behind it and they plan on keeping it that way until it is released. So all of the clues are going to be red herrings, giving something trivial that does not explain the whole, until they give it up or someone leaks the information. In other words, none of us are right. Oh, and as for "We don't just shut everyone down we welcome real clues and others that are intersted in figuring this out." Here are some direct quotes: "Tell me how your investigating can even hold a candle to the Horsemen, and I wont give you shit." -HP "Holy Shit I leave for two days and i come back to a cow pasture…full of bullshit." -Ripper "I mean it's ok to joke and say it's shit like captain planet or denver the last dinosaur, but I hate these dead serious chumps who make stupid remarks." -HP "I think Godzilla should be in the 4 horsemen, because he's definitely in the movie." -Matt "Whoever this matt dude is, you can just take your negativity and scram bud." -nightowl Sounds like joking is no longer allowed. Name yourselves whatever you want, but you don't own this message board. If someone wants to say it is Voltron, they have every right to, regardless of how unlikely that is.
  • geezer
    just in case anybody was thinking about playing the audio from the trailer backward, dont waste your time, i found nothing, except for the fact that the roar in reverse sounds like a hippo in heat
  • nightowl
    Cowpatty, very valid points and I want to discuss this more. I have been thinking more and more about exactly what you just mentioned. And it makes me think that there is sort of THE THING type of replicating us going on. This is all just speculating and guessing but what if some of the people weren't human? rather, alien/creature/monster....in a human body? just a thought..... And Matt, good posts man. Be pessimistic if you have to...hahaha...someone's gotta oppose all of us optimistic folks! haha..... I just thought you were trying to be a jerk but you're not. I apologize. And I agree with the fact that we very well might not ever figure too many things out at all...but it's fun to atleast try and we are all still very interested and continue to spread the word......and yeah, they won't ever give everything out or the actual title or alien/creature/beast cuz if they did...that ends all of our investigastions and curiosities and then possibly even our trips to the theaters. So that would never happen.....but who's to say that a lot of our educated guesses and theories won't be right? That's wat's fun about this....to see who was right or almost right and who was way off etc etc....so let's keep all our minds on this and keep it up!!!! The lone horsemen that's lost and can't find the other four...hahahah
  • nightowl
    Oh and Matt- the reason why I said scram bud is becasue I thought you just happened to pop in here and read a few posts and then just basically tell us to F ourselves becasue we're idiots, geeks, morons etc etc and that was all you were trying to do.....instigate, just spout off some random vulgar crap and then we'd never here from you again.....that's why I mentioned that. No biggie man.....
  • Matt
    H.P., I understand you and the Horsemen line of thinking, I just feel that this all seems too familiar to actually be leading to the place you guys want it to. Take for example the Slusho site. On Lost, a brand of candy bar appeared called Apollo candy bars and this whole corporate website was created with a whole mysterious back story of the company, a store, etc. and it ended up being completely inconsequential to the Lost storyline. It was the quintessential red herring. In my opinion, it's a universe establishing device for the (irritatingly unnamed) movie. I don't know if any of you read Stephen King (with a Lovecraft (i.e. horror) background, I'm sure you have), but The Dark Tower comes to mind where certain events or people are referenced just to let the audience know that this is happening in the same world that this other thing happened. If this is the same, then the whole purpose of the Slusho t-shirt and website is to clue the audience in that this is happening in the same world that Alias occurs in and, if that, then most likely Lost. Does that mean that it will have anything further to do with either of these? Maybe, but if it does it will be in a wink wink sort of way, as I mentioned in an earlier post. Something the Lost or Alias people could tie to their shows, but would not take away from anyone else's enjoyment of the movie. I think our back and forth got out of hand, but nightowl's personal jab at a joking comment that I made earlier got me a little irate. I'd like to wipe the slate clean with you guys and, to take Ripper up on his invitation, if I have anything at all to contribute, I'll try to do so, though as I said I'm not too good at these exhaustive internet searches and am working hard on this book so time is not a real luxury of mine (though when I'm slacking at the paying job I can always post these long diatribes).

  • nightowl
    Matt- Not a problem dude...I took it as you were just trying to be a jerk....but you weren't. I've been trying to say all along that all of us should embrace everyone's ideas and thoughts.....so I think between you and I, it was a miscommunication and misunderstanding... and that's all...no big deal....I do not claim to own any message boards or anything to that matter....just trying to throw in some educated guesses and thoughts and ideas, theories etc etc...and when I so call 'claim' to know the title which I have said it's DYSTOPIA......it's obviously just my educated guess on it and not at all 100% truth.....I'm just trying to have fun with this..... And Cowpattybill- Oh no offense taken at all...I was just throwing that out there.....with some of this 'people not acting like themselves' etc etc.....it just seemed that maybe they really aren't themselves, but something else. but I see where you're coming from......it's as if they may know something that the others don't....or dread something that's happening....I was just giving it a different angle......and you are free to embrace it or let it go!!!

    Matt, i dident come here to argue with you i had enough of that on youtube. Yes i realive that we will not know everything about tis moive and i dont want to cause then the moive would suck but i like the mystry and i like to work with others to collabertate ideas to figure out somthing that no one else has. I shut down only Debunked theroys that are so mononinus and overused that they just fill this page with garbage. Look we have wasted a day bickering and found out nothing you have your thoughts and i have mine if you still dislike me and the horsemen there is nothing anyone can say that will change that. If you think its a waste of time why read it. Your thoughs have been heard and our remarkes said lets move past this.
  • nightowl
    Just my opinion- I visited the slusho site maybe three times and never went back and probably won't. I just don't see it as very helpful. It's sorta what Matt said....it's just a small backstory line to tell you a few things but it's basically not that big of a deal to the major big picture...... and JJ....that is fucking comedy....hahahahha!!!

    OK...I just went to Jamie Lascano's myspace page and what's odd is that her friend count slowly diminishes every few days. And she doesn't accept any friends requests. And she just posted some new comments. Well, one of these kids that left a comment has some very odd pictures.....check them out- http://www.myspace.com/illchangeitlater look at the EGG sign picture? All the monster/creature/alien egg talk....and then this pic....anything strike you weird? Also, why does he say I'm not drinking something? such an odd thing to say...although he does have a drink in his hand in two other pics but why would you just randomly say this? Perhaps it's an inside joke with friends.... Also, what about his very lasy pic...where a bunch of people are commenting on how they aren't sure if it's him.....it doesn't seem like him....etc etc......just sort of weird being that Cowpatty and I both have just talked about certain issues such as this...how ROB and the other girl are not acting like themselves, seem to possibly dread what's happening or may know something that the others don't...and then my theory of what if they are replicating us and we aren't who we appear to be? ....just some thoughts.... These pages and comments are there for a reason....to either guide us along or misguide us....

    No problem, Ripper. The same thing happened to me with the last long argumentative post (including quotes!). As soon as I sent it, I saw your last one and HP's, both burying the guantlet. I think we're all caught up now, so hopefully this business is done and we can return to the message board.

  • http://www.slusho.jp H.P.
    Sorry JJ fakebrams, but the fact is that I will see this movie before you. All this crap going on with matt has got me really disenchanted. You still have not brought up any fucking theories in here. Why are you even here. You contribute nothing. I'm done. In closing I will say this. I believe that Jason is a more significant character than Rob, and this is why. Jason went to Japan and on his travels he visited the slusho headquarters. Jason met some weird town folk and heard of the mythos of the monster which may very well be sleeping under the island of Hokkaido, the island itself could have fell to earth millions of years ago. If you go on slusho one of the quotes in the happy talk section says something about going to Hokkaido to sample a new flavor I believe this new flavor just happened to come out while Jason was in Japan. Basically the he hears a rumor that when people when searching for the ingredient for the new flavor they acidentally woke up the monster. So Jason whith as this knowledge comes back home to New York and tells Rob about everything. I also believe that while Jason was in Japan this monster started actually showing up on radar and sending people into panic. Rob gets obsessed with Jason's story and ultimately decides to go to Japan. The night Rob is getting ready to go to Japan (who knows maybe he is a marine biologist and is so obsessed he wants to move there) the ROAR happens and based on Jason's story Rob gets very concerned, but look at the guy watching the news broadcast he turns away and also looks concerned. I believe that to be Jason. Also I still believe the island itself is a clue to what the monster looks like. I don't know about you guys, but if I saw a horse, whale, frog, birdlike alien creature 100 times bigger than the statue of liberty coming at me I would be scared out of my body. Also just before the head gets thrown you can kinda make out a Horses snout. Use your imagination. -The Four Horsemen-

    That's funny! You said "bury the guantlet". Isn't it "bury the hatchet"? And something like "raise the guantlet", or "pass the guantlet"? Or is it "pass the torch"? Now I'm confused.

    Actully yes JJ i do have somthing else to throw at you "Gotta catch'em all"...O ya i went there.

    Another misguided theory that you feel sooo very confident about H.P. You're good at that. Had anyone else theorized and commented that I was matt you would have told them that they were wrong and that they shouldnt waste your brainspace with their undignified remarks. Does anyone else feel as if this "H.P." has an undeserved feeling of seniority over everyone else on this blogspot?

    OK...OK...now this is getting ridiculous. First it's everyone bashing eachother, then it's everyone sucking eachother's dicks and now it's more bashing......I don't know about you guys but if you want to sit in here and bash eachother the whole time then so be it.....In the meantime, I'm gonna try to keep posting things that are related to this movie, cultivate more ideas, thoughts and theories and share them with whomever would like to read them and expand on them.....

    At least I'm putting a theory up Fakebrams. Let's get something straight. If I come across as high and mighty then I am sorry. Just get over The Horsemen already. You haven't said one constructive thing in here. If you pay attention I do apologize to people I rip on. Also what's with the sexist and racially geared comments. The Horsemen are way better than that my friend. I just don't understand why I get singled out for using originality on my theories, maybe I could care less what abrams comes up with ever think of that. I am just telling people what I would like to see happen. Tell you what Matt and fakebrams let's just end this if you plan on staying. I think everyone can agree on that resolution. -The Four Horsemen- Wooooooooo!!!!
  • J J Abrams
    sexist? racially geared? what the hell are you talking about? You're reaching a little bit there arent you H.P. and the reason i'm picking on you is that i think you're a pussy.

    If the monster is deep under the sea then obviouslly its cold weel the path i had ploted earlyer throught the sea to New York most of that is frozen all summer long so if the monster slowl starts to move toward the atlantic not new york specificly then the cod enviroment would suit him very well. I belive that the monster stays this course because New york is the fist Major population city it would come across and it could make it courious and then scared and start to kill everything in its path.

  • H.P.
    What if it was an alien that fell to earth clinging onto a chunk of it's destroyed planet and he landed in the ocean. This chunk of planet could be the secret ingredient. Demand for the new slusho flavor causes the greedy company to continue mining for the ingredient. Something terribly wrong happens when they drill too deep and awaken the monster. Ultimately only this slusho(keep in mind the monster is supposedly super intelligent much like Cthulhu) pisses him off because it contains something that belongs to him which is why he goes after people who drink it. How does he know who drinks it. Well if you know anything about Cthulhu (and I think this monster could be based on the same concept) then you know that Cthulhu can communicate with all living things at once. Now I'm not saying the monster will straight up look like all the animals but rather have certain attributes of the horse, frog, bird,whale and If it is part whale then that means it's a mammal which could mean it has humanoid features as well. I remember one of the kid characters on the slusho site saying "Am I a Whale" If you guys are digging my theory then let me know. -The Four Horsemen-
  • geezer
    i really dig your theory h.p, and you might just be on to somethin, because on one of the myspace's that nightowl found which is http://www.myspace.com/demodeus he has a pic of cthulhu, and it says "from the heavens came the god of the sea" and this guy is supposedly connected to the other charecters' myspaces.

    yea, i really do. like night owl had mentioned a while back, his hair is styled like just like abrams hair is. and it would make sense why he has the mask on, also, i looked up arethusa (the girl that commented desmodeus cthulhu pic) and arethusa is the name of a large meteor that was discovered in 98' which would also go with yout theory of a chunk of a planet hitting earth

    Do you think it is Abrams? -The Four Horsemen-
  • Matt
    Hold up, HP. To start off with, why would I, after posting several times under my own name, decide to start posting under "JJ Abrams"? Adding to that, why would I make peace under one name and keep antagonizing under a different name? Also, assuming you thought we were the same person on post 707, I posted my original theory in mid-July (post 191), so maybe you should take your own advice and read all of the posts before making your own. Granted, I don't expect any of you to consider my theory possible, but I haven't completely abandoned it. Just because I don't feel like trying to figure out every second of the movie before it comes out, doesn't mean I haven't contributed. Now, if we can move pass this, I'm done arguing.
  • Matt
    That is an extremely elaborate theory, HP (post 724), but I have my reservations that it could be well explained in a movie set up the way this one is (so far) supposed to be. Unless a character just tells all of that flat out, which could end up being ridiculous. I am slowly turning into the camp where Rob and at least a couple of his friends know what is happening (originally thought it was just shock, which is understandable in the situation), but knowing something of that magnitude? It just seems a little much to me. Not saying it's impossible though. Hell, if it doesn't happen, you can write that one yourself.
  • Cowpattybill
    Just so we know what each person is thinking I suggest we throw in what we have created in our minds as the possible plot of the movie. I'd like to know where each person is going with the information (or lack of) that we have. Okay, I'll go first. I think it is some kind of giant monster that comes from the ocean. It has something to do with Slusho, whether it was some kind of mutation from the secret ingredient, or whether it was awakened by those looking for the secret ingredient. For some reason it comes to New York and wreaks some havoc. I think Rob and maybe 1 or 2 others know about this creature and that is why they act differently than the others when it attacks (in the trailer). I think Rob works for Slusho and this may be why he is moving to Japan. I think many people die, there is much destruction, the military is involved. I think the creature lives but goes back to where it came from. Another idea I like but have very little info to support it is that the monster might be pregnant upon entering NYC, and gives birth to a bunch of little monsters that also tear up the city. A new idea I like is that this secret ingredient for slusho comes from outerspace, like a meteoroid or something. Anyone else want to throw one in?
  • Matt
    Honestly, I kind of hope that there is no backstory to the monster and, as mentioned by someone earlier (sorry, I'm not digging through the posts for it) that we only see the monster in brief glimpses. It makes for a more chilling movie, in my opinion, if you have no idea where it came from, but it just shows up, wreaks havoc and disappears without anyone knowing why or how it happened. Given that, the movie will just be carnage upon carnage and for those John Carpenter fans out there (again, not digging for the earlier Thing references) the plot is basically trying to survive the attack, the tension for the audience being that all we know is this disaster recovery group finds this camcorder and we have no idea if the people in the video will live or die. So that is my general, basic theory. Not knocking anyone else's, but I don't think Slusho is going to be pivotally involved and pray that it isn't pregnant (which I thought was probably the most ridiculous aspect of the US Godzilla movie). I do think, however, that it would be a great concept to just have the monster leave and not be destroyed, especially if there is no rhyme or reason to the attack, because that is infinitely more scary to think that there is no telling when it could happen again.

    OK, if this movie is about the island of Hokkaido coming alive, I sure hope Italy wakes up and kicks it's butt! Lighten up folks.
  • H.P.
    C'mon dude give me a break here you cant expect me to remember all 734 posts. Plus I been really wrapped up in my theory. It really haunts me. I couldn't sleep last night because of it. I have a more extensive theory, but I wanna give other people a chance to give some input. I prob should not say much more anyway. I feel like I'm just pissing people off in here when really I just wanna have fun, and It was up until yesterday. Matt I owe you an apology and yes I do remember you from early on so I know your diehard with this shit. I got an e mail from Fakebram's and he seems like a really bad dude. As bad as I am in fact, so I can't really give him shit. He is like the Horsemen's arch nemesis, but I think we all have a respect for him at least I do anyway. So Matt all bad blood drained I extend a hand of friendship. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Ripper
    OK my turn, I belive that the monster will show up and cause chaos I hope they make the monster survive and just dissaper. The only way i belive we will know the monsters backstory and how it came to New York is if we find out ourself online before and after the moive is relesed. Rob knows somthing i have a feeling the Island of hokkaido has somthing to do with the monster. I belive the Slusho people awaken it in the ocean by drilling away what may have kept him dormaite all this time. I think it is from here not an alien. Ancient yes not a mutation. I think it takes the path i suggested in the water and New York just happens to be the first major city it stummbles upon, and it is courious and scared so it does what any animal in fear does attack. -The Four Horsemen-
  • bam@bam.com
    H.P. about comment 727 i actually googled desmodeus a few days agoa nd got nothin but it says "do u mean desmodus" (just took out the e) and apparently its some type of bat i didnt think much of it tho so iddint bother posting about it. also regarding when i said somethin about the slusho thing being stupid. ur right it is original i just hope its not like idk how to put it it just seems its used to much and when seeing the video saying the monster attacks ppl who drink slusho ya original but i come on its stupid haha no offense but it kinda is but who knows will have to wait and see :D none the less thoe i think the movie will be realll good -The Four Horsemen-
  • Matt
    No, HP, I don't think you are that bad. Sometimes it's just hard to separate passion for something from stepping on people's toes. Overall, you and the other Horsemen haven't been that bad about shooting people down, but occasionally do get so fervored in your theories that your replies can come off as condescending. Through it all though, at least as I remember it, none of you have resorted to degradation or name-calling so that puts you a step above some of the others. For the record, my last post concerning "the argument" (as it will forever now be known) was not me being pissed off, but just wanting to set the record straight.
  • bam
    WOOT ok so check this out if u go to slusho.jp and go to the flavors to create ur own u see in the background a flower which im guessing is the secret ingredent to slusho that they talk about in the histoyr. so from the email thin i posted earlier i would look up hokkaido in wikipedia but i googled it this time insted an foudn out it is called "the flower continent" so y is theb oat found at hokkaido??? im guessing he was lookin for slusho secret ingredent and if ound Azalea are famous in hokkaido soo maybe try google images for Azalea and compare it to the flower on the slusho site. but wait i just read that the Japanese rose is the official flower of Hokkaido now google that flower in google images and i thinkwe found wat the scecret ingredent might be!! it kinda looks like the flower fromt he site to me -The Four Horsemen-
  • bam
    if u serch the japanese rose on wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Rose it says the "hips" or w/e grow fruit or something idk check it out. so mayebd that is put into the slusho?? -The Four Horsemen-
  • H.P.
    I think all that flower might mean is that it is a space flower, perhaps maybe its a crystal of some sort and not a flower at all. This would make more sense of my mining theory. I'll admit though it does look like a flower. What type of flower glows like that though. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Cowpattybill
    Another ridiculous theory that just jumped in my head is this: What if whatever the secret Slusho ingredient is some huge rock-like thing found on the bottom of the ocean. They haul this thing back to New York to break down and use in Slusho drinks. Turns out the rock is really an egg and pissed off momma monster zips over to New York to recover the now hatched baby monster.
  • Cowpattybill
    Or multiple eggs.
  • Matt
    I apologize if this has been posted before, but I don't remember seeing it. Has anyone seen the 4 on set videos? Or heard that NY Mag published something about the movie ending? Let me know if this is old news, but it adds a lot of evidence to the post earlier about the mysterious email with dialogue from the movie.
  • Cowpattybill
    Yes, I've heard, read, and seen all of it. I have been checking out 4 or 5 other boards keeping tabs on theories and new discoveries but I only post here. I had assumed you all were doing something similar. I don't have the links but I've seen the video of Rob and a girl huddled in a tunnel in Central Park with debris falling on their heads. I've also seen the call sheet which states it is the last page and end of filming, although I would argue whether it was the actual last scene of the movie or just the last scene of the New York unit. There is some filming or some kind of work being done in LA. I've seen the videos of the NYC street set being setup with cars piled with debris and some guy pounding a huge dent in a cars hood with a sledgehammer. I've seen the (alleged) videos of a helicopter landing and a bunch of miliary guys jumping in and taking off as well as a bunch of military guys running around the set. I've seen the video of a soldier with a bandage on his head coming out of building followed by a nurse and Rob and a couple other characters hanging around. I think that's about it.
  • Ripper
    DONT READ THE NY MAG ARTICAL!!!!!!!!The call sheet they have snagged looks very real and it does show were evey shoot takes place so read it if you want but it will ruin the moive. I want to figure out what the monster is but i dont want to know the moive before it is here.The crew person who gave them that should be shot...traitor. Whats the fun in trying to figure shit out isf someone comes along and spoles the whole moive. If someone wants to read it just google NY mag cloverfeild but dont post the ending and alternet ending here please. Yes there is two possible endings no i did not read either. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Matt
    Thanks Ripper, I didn't read the article either, but saw the posting on another site that gave no details except for the location of the ending (if, as cowpattybill put it, it is the ending and not the last NY location). I don't have any interest in seeing the ending before the movie comes out either, but thought that the videos lended creedence to the email posted earlier, if the email was sent before the videos were posted, and could explain the backstory. Either way, it still leaves us in the dark except knowing that, at some point, they will be under a bridge. Thanks for the heads up of the actual spoilers though. Otherwise, I may have gotten curious and gone to look at it to see what is actually said on the call sheet.
  • J J Abrams
    Is their any chance that this could be Friday the 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan Part 2? Its about time that they made a sequel to that piece of cinematic genius.
  • JJJAckson
    the flower on the "create your own flavor" page of the Slusho site appears to me to be a lotus flower, an aquatic plant with strong symbolism both in the orient and worldwide. "Lotus flower is a symbol of the sun, of creation and rebirth. Because at night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. According to one creation myth it was a giant lotus which first rose out of the watery chaos at the beginning of time. From this giant lotus the sun itself rose on the first day."
  • bam
    woah thats intresting jjjackson kinda fits wats goin on maybe a giant lotus TYPE monster??
  • Matt
    J J, imposter you may be, that is hilarious. I immediately thought of a cross between Jason Takes Manhattan and Honey I Blew Up the Kids, where a giant Jason is wreaking havoc in New York City. Actually, I could probably digest that better than Jason X.
  • J J Abrams
    Yes Matt. We must consider ALL possibilities.
  • geezer
    yea, that call sheet ruined it for me a lil bit, but i still gonna go see the movie, and here is one of my theorys. the monster used to be an ordinary sea creature, but a chemical or something that was being processed by the japanese spilled into the western coast of hokkaido (the island that one of you mentioned) and mutated all of the creatures around the western coast. most of the creatures died instantly because of the poison in the chemical and because the chemical scrambled their dna. but only 1 survived, one that wasn't at the coast when the spill accured, but he still got enough of the chemical to mutate him but not enough to kill him. and as for rob's behavior, he gets a call on his way home from a friend in japan that works at a slusho factory, which rob is supposed to be transfered to. his friend tells him about the chemical spill and how he has seen stories on the news about fishermen finding thousands of fish with partially deveoped human like heads and octopi sprouting human like legs and arms etc. and how a fisherman on the opposite side of hokkaido caught video of a blue whale getting washed up by a huge wave on the eastern hokkaido shore with a giant chunk of it's body missing, he also tell's rob that the fisherman reports that he felt a small shake in the ground and a loud groan-like sound before the huge wave washed the whale carcus onto the beach. and that would explain rob's behavior, he has what his friend has said stuck in his mind, and doesn't tell anybody else because he is not 100% sure that his friend was telling the truth, but once he hears the roar and feels the quake, he's positive that his friend wasn't lying (if you watch the trailer he acts even more suspicious after the quake and roar) so what do you think? it kinda sounds like a cheesy sci-fi channel movie, but its all i got at the moment
  • Matt
    Geezer, that's not too bad. It would explain Rob's reaction and the quick military response (the Japanese report may not have been picked up by US news, but the military would definitely know something about it).

  • Cowpattybill
    This is for anyone who has read the call sheet. I will try to make my question generic enough not to give anything away. My question is: The call sheet indicates the cast by numbers. In the beginning of the call sheet the scene calls for cast 1 and 2. Later it calls for 1, 3, & 5. The sheet has a section about 1/2 way down that shows which actor/character represents which number. There is no #3 listed. Who is #3 and why aren't they on the list?
  • Cowpattybill
    Something else I will throw out in a generic manner is: What is a HUD costume? Anyone heard of it?
  • Cowpattybill
    Putting this together myself I believe HUD is a character (possibly computer generated) and is Cast # 3

  • CloverFreak
    Just found this site while looking for clues http://www.rageofthegods.com The site has a 6 digit code box and in a few seconds it forwards to slusho.jp. It has a picture of a chinese or japanese zodiac rat and a chinese/japanese symbol.
  • geezer
    good find cloverfreak, im sure one of the 4 horsemen guys will look into that later, but i also disocvered somethin (pretty sure others noticed this) look on the call sheet http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2007/08/clover_field_wraps_and_weve_got_the_call_sheet.html at the very bottom under ADVANCE SCHEDULE it says "ext. street. group running, hud checks out fight, halls ass!!" this could possibly mean that there are indeed 2 MONSTERS and that they are fighting each other. considering the fact that 2 humans fighting over something during a monster invasion wouldn't make much sense at all
  • H.P.
    Yeah I'm pretty sure it is some sort of giant Japanese Mecha that hoses down the monster with a mixture of different slusho ingredients. That is just what I think. I have no hard facts to back that up. Maybe rob is inside the mecha. I checked out the call sheet. Very cool find, but I think abram's sent that to fuck with people. I saved the jpeg and it saves as jjabramsending_zoom. I dont know what all this zoom talk is about but I am sure it is significant. Making your own flavor on the slusho page does use mechas to demonstrate that, so I figure they must turn the secret ingredient against the monster somehow. -The Four Horsemen-
  • H.P.
    What if they take all the left over secret ingredient and embed it into the mecha causing the monster to come after it then allow the monster to divert it's attention from innocent people. Then the mecha hauls an ass whoopin on it. I think the robot could be just as original as the monster will be. I came to the conclussion that this monster will be so terrifying that even something like my slusho theory would not seem silly next to it. -The Four Horsemen-

    Ok, Rage of the gods I read that checked it out browsed the web and this is what i found. No one has decyphered what the two symbols after the cancel box screen mean, but i am pretty sure it is something to the effect of try again. 80811 is not the cancel code neither is 11808, it will let you type in letters as well as numbers no clue what the code is yet. No one around seems to think it has anything to do with cloverfield or slusho either, but i have a feeling thats because no one can figure out the cancel code or what the symbols mean. The picture of the rat is from the Chinese Zodiac year of the rat...2008, the symbol above its head is the only one i have founa at this moment thatis translated. It means God or Deity. Ok this needs to be proven or debunked i am going to dedicate my time to deciphering the symbols on the Rage of the Gods site and the bottom of the Slusho site. If it means somthing or not i need to know, no one else has translated them we need to know its right there in our faces and we dont know what it says. I'm not sure if its japanees or chinese symbols check both to be safe.

    I believe I saw somewhere that the symbols on the bottom of the slusho site have been translated. It basically translates to "You can't drink just 6" or something very close to that. As for the rageofthegods site. No idea what that is all about. I looked at the source code and it has similarities to 1-18-08.com site. Both use websites like http://www.w3.org and http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js which are things like counters and whatnot but either these are the best websites to use and everyone web designer is using them or they are unique enough that two websites using the same links almost certainly indicates they are related. Geezer, I assumed that the fighting the call sheet talks about was the military fighting the monster. I did find it interesting on the call sheet that HUD is not listed as a character yet he is in the later scenes and his costume is for 3 people. To me, that is a huge clue to something.
  • Cowpattybill
    Consensus on the majority of the other boards is that the rageofthegods site is a bust. Mostly the timing of it's creation, where it leads to, the fact there there seems to be no correct code (nothing indicates that a correct code, if there is one, will take you anywhere, it just seems to be a text box). The symbol at the top of the page was changed at one point and then changed back, etc. It doesn't seem to link to slusho anymore. Good theories and I also think that it isn't a legit site.

    I agree bam. I already have my theory, but how can I build on it without new stuff. Maybe the horsemen and everone else on here got J.J. worried.

    Great, now at rageofthegods.com the top symbol at the top of the first page is blurred and the symbols on the other page are now different. Geezer, can you figure them out? I hope this is something and not someone screwing around with us.
  • Cowpattybill
    Apparently alot has happened recently. There is new information at these two links. Be warned though it may contain information about the movie. I've read the first link contains script dialogue used for casting but the dialogue is for a different movie similar to 1-18-08.com. But the second link contains information about the plot to the first third of the movie. I don't know, you can decide for yourself. It does seem to fit alot of the details we have together but I have no idea how that would be filmed. http://1-18-08news.com/apparent-concrete-details-regarding-1-18-08/ http://1-18-08news.com/new-evidence-update-from-the-forum/
  • Cowpattybill
    I said all that wrong. I don't actually know whether the dialogue is from 1-18-08 or some other movie that is similar to it. That is what is being discussed at 1-18-08news.com. Apparently if we figure out what movie the dialogue is from then more clues will be found.

    I'm not trying to rain on anyones parade, but rage of the gods just seems very bogus to me. The sad fact is that everyone is putting fake shit up and it will only get worst as time goes on. I could be wrong though, and I will admit that if rage turns out to be legit.
  • H.P.
    The first symbol does resemble a robot. Maybe it is not what the symbols mean, but what they look like.
  • H.P.
    Nice work Cowpattybill. I totally didn't know what was going on, but apparently there have been some pretty crazy developments. Everyone should check the links out on post 788 and come back here to discuss. It actually makes even more sense out of my theory. If you notice rageofthegods was posted by a cat named luis. He does kinda show up out of the blue, which kinda gets me wondering about it's authenticity.
  • V.O.
    “Here is the first third of the film…About one billion (yes billion) years ago, life on Earth was still at the multi-cell level and they remained mostly in their habitat. One of the organisms was more passive and preferred a symbiotic relationship for their survival. Another (and there were more) was more aggressive and preferred to control larger beings for their survival. Back then, the world had only one continent. The two organisms were separated, for the most part, by land. But the aggressive organism had developed a taste for the passive one and tried to feed on it as often as possible by going around the land mass. Until a cataclysmic event changed things, burying most of the ancient organisms under the oceans. The surviving organisms either died off or evolved (later becoming humans and what not). Fast forward to present day and we have Japan discovering the passive organisms buried off their coast and eventually came to the conclusion that the American continents (North and South) had drifted over the aggressive organisms (more on them later) during the past billion years. Japanese scientists begin studying this passive organism and find that it is a perfect nourishment supplement to humans. Grown in an agricultural field on the island of Hokkaido, Japan, these organisms create the appearance of cloverfields. The scientists learn that these organisms are beneficial symbiotic parasites that give us additional nourishment and make us feel happy. Thus humans and the parasites become one. They are kept cold to prevent them from dying from exposure until they are introduced into their host. Thus the development of the awesome and delicious drink – Slusho! (It makes me happy). Rob is a college graduate who has been hired by Slusho and has just accepted an offer to work in their technologies division in Japan. Rob also knows the basics of the organism, the story that Slusho “invented” as a marketing campaign and has recently been informed that the scientists have found trace amounts of the aggressive organism. This aggressive organism likes to pool up into a larger being, control it, own it, even change it. It also eats the smaller passive organism much the same way a whale will eat plankton. Slusho is now one of the most popular drinks. In it’s own right it is a tasty meal that does not add fat and is proven to be healthy with claims that it cures cancer and many other diseases. Slusho and it’s by-products are now being flushed (literally) into the sewer systems and drained out to sea by way of urine, fecal matter and just straight unconsumed Slusho. This builds up on the ocean floor and eventually awakens a very hungry and aggressive organism. This aggressive organism, hungry and well, aggressive, follows the sewer trail back to New York and emerges through the sewers breaking and igniting a natural gas pipeline in it’s effort to feed on the passive organism, which is now us.”

    Okay, things are really getting alot stranger. The following was posted at http://1-18-08news.com/new-evidence-update-from-the-forum/ Skippy — August 14, 2007 @ 1:44 am Wow you mates really impress me not only with buying in to JJ’s plan for the marketing which was bloody well a great one. But with coming up with all this info about the movie. The CIA should really hire some of you. James you pretty much nutshelled the whole movie. There goes the parasite ayy? Not going to give anything away here, just had to comment on the work you fellows put out. To TPaul, sorry to lay ya over here mate but yes shot with Cannon XL-H1 hand helds. Now however I did do some shooting with a Panasonic DVX100b switched to the 35mm lens. But no holloss on the shakey part, a steady hand was used. Although to give the “real” feel we did do some jerky shots, but not shakey mate. Pleased I was with the acting though, alot was fly by the seat of our skivies. I will clue ya in on this or not, dont know if it’s coverd since this is the first post I have read, the cam’s are found by a recovery team after the events. Good Luck on your findings… Skippy! Skippy — August 14, 2007 @ 2:40 am Oh, one last thing mates I forgot to post. The marking on the lower back of Lady Liberty is made from the “thumb claw”. (Notice the the metal flares outward) That’s a big part of the parasite. Keep diggin’! Skippy I have no idea who "Skippy" is but he is not listed in IMDB.
  • H.P. (the Venus Occupant)
    Skippy got me looking at the poster once again. This thing has got to be super fast. Look closely at the decapitated head, notice there are still bits of debris in mid air. It might just be a goof but I do think it is showing just how fast the monster is.
  • bam
    i agree HP i have the poster (ebay) and up close u can see evrythign perfect there is debris flying off from the statue of liberty but at the same time there is still debris flying from the building it like took chunks out of it seems - The Horsemen Will Never Die-
  • Cowpattybill
    I'm not sure that you should see that much into the poster. It's not an actual scene from the movie (most likely) and probably subject to things like artisitic license and artists interpretations and what not. HP, are you also VO? The same VO that posted #793?

  • Howard Phillips (the Venus Occupant)
    Well put cowpatty. Your right most posters do not show scenes from the movie, but that doesn't mean the poster has no meaning. I think we need to take everything into consideration. This monster will most likely be extremely fast which means we will prob get quick glimpses of the monster amidst the chaos of infected people ripping each other apart. Here is an old post of mine which might support this infected person theory. #430 So far it seems 5:00pm eastern time on thursday for new pics. Last week was the creepy dressed in black man in the background. He is holding his chest it seems, in a rather menacing way. He looks as though He is inching forward towards the soldier. Is this man maybe talking apocalyptic mumbo jumbo to the soldier, to me the soldier seems kinda dumb founded. This guy also seems to be some sort of priest. The messed up thing is that it could also resemble a woman running with a baby. Howard Phillips on Jul 26, 2007 P.S. I am V.O. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Ripper
    H.P., Bam i also agree this thing is going to be fast as hell and we will probobly only see glimpsis of it throughout the moive it may show the whole thing a one climatic moment in the film but i think it would add to the suspense is you did not always know were the monster was at. Also that would be quite a good explanation for the 30 mil to make the film...would not need alot to show glimpses of a CGI monster. I like the infected people theroy, because even if the monster does not kill everyone the infected people introduced into a mass population in panic...spread like widfire. The infected people could be what rob is refering to when they are under the bridge and he says "I think you of them is up there" or somthing to that degree i dont have time to find the post that quoted it.

However, in my truck I listen mostly to Christain rock, worship music, 80's hard rock, country, classical, blues. No jazz or rap and very little hip-hop. I wish JJ would post somewhere his thoughts and feelings about the work that has been done to unravel his mystery. Is he impressed? Pissed off? Are we figuring this out faster than he anticipated? How close are we to the truth? JJ, if you keeping tabs on all this, give us some feedback. Oh, and more clues too. Thanks.

    Toward H.P.~~ Indeed, I am still here, just waiting to be called upon. You are right, this is the best place I have found to gather information. However, I've been having issues at home, and have not found time to do much gathering on my own. So, I have come to the conclusion that it would be easiest for me if I sat back and watched. That way I learn about the movie without having another thing to stress about. However, if you need me to do any research, I will be glad to. I don't mind helping a good friend out. Toward everyone ~~ I'm not sure how important Slusho will be. Although I have heard a lot, the prospect of a monster coming from the ocean to attack people that drink a beverage doesn't sound the most probable to me. I'm not saying it couldn't happen, and I'm not shooting it down. I'm just saying that I have my doubts about it. Oh, and P.S., H.P., a Cocktail is an alcoholic beverage. Not sure what Jeff is trying to get at with it, but that's what a cocktail is.
  • H.P.
    LOL!! I know it is an alcoholic beverage, just wondering what Jeff is getting at. I did a wikipedia on JJ and discovered that he directed an office episode titled cocktails. The episode aired early this year. Could this episode have clues in it. I will look into it. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Infinity-
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhUrKZtav4A&mode=related&search= this is an interesting theory... was the original "thing" an american construct? or was it a bite off of an import idea? seems to me that thats the only criteria left...true or not its a neat thought.
  • Matt
    Here is somewhere I can help. The Thing is completely American and was based on the short story "Who Goes There?" by John Campbell. It was originally made into the movie The Thing from Another World, directed by Howard Hawks, and then John Carpenter remade it into a masterpiece in 1982. One of, if not the, best horror movie ever. Unfortunately, The Thing is being remade, but isn't due out until 2009. This goes with the Hollywood agenda to remake all of the best Carpenter movies into the worst movies imaginable (though I do have high hopes for the new Halloween). Given that, I doubt Cloverfield will be directly correlated with The Thing, though that doesn't mean there won't be similarities. It would be an interesting concept to explore: what would happen if it got away from Antarctica? That would require a much heftier budget though as those who saw the 1982 movie can attest.
  • H.P.
    Infinity the Thing is actually a remake of the movie The Thing from Another World. It is in no way an import idea. As for the similar roar, well it could just be a JJ paying homage. Keep in mind the monster is supposedly a parasite and the thing is also a parasite, but that is where the similarity ends. -The Four Horsemen-
  • H.P.
    Sorry about that Matt it seems we posted at the same time, but you beat me to it. Hey if it gets too boring in here we could always talk horror movies. How do you feel about AVP 2. I personally think they should just do a predator 3.
  • Matt
    If Schwarzenegger wasn't so old now, I would agree with a Predator 3 and have the plot be that the original predator had communicated Dutch's face to his friends and they all came for revenge, which should have been the plot for Predator 2. Then again, old Arnie vs. Predator would still probably be a better movie than I thought AVP was.
  • H.P.
    They should bring Danny Glover back. Hey matt do you play videogames? I am very much into Resident Evil and Silent Hill. What are your thoughts on the Silent Hill movie and also the upcoming Resident Evil 3. I think Resident Evil 3 looks super retarded. Hope they do 4 just like the game. I consider Resident Evil 4 to be one of the best games ever made. -The 4 Horsemen-
  • Matt
    I'm a big fan of the survival horror games, but have hated all of the Resident Evil movies. It just seems to me like they missed the point. They made it more of an action story than horror. Granted the elements are there, with the zombies and Umbrella and all, but it just seemed so ridiculous to me rather than scary. Silent Hill did it a bit better with a real freaky experience, but the whole split storyline took me out of it. I would have rather stayed in Silent Hill instead of seeing what the husband was doing. I agree that RE 4 was phenomenal...as was SH4. Maybe 4 is the magic number.
  • Ripper
    I love The Thing, Matt i do belive it is defenently one of the top three horror moives ever made. H.P., I will kill myself if they make an AVP2 cause it will have some hybrid predlien in it and i feel it would sham both the alien and predetor. Make Predetor 3 i'm all for that, Stallone had Rocky Balboa Arnold should have Predetor 3. I personaly want to see Evil Dead 4 Hail to the King get made.

    Predetor 3, Stallone had Rocky Ballboa Arnold should have P3. The new Halloween will be amazing Rob Zombie can make one hell of a moive. I am a video game fanatic. As for Resident Evil love that series more than any other. RE4 is the greatest game ever, Silent Hill 4 scariest shit ever in a video game. I have played fatal frame and siren but Silent Hill just puts it on another level. The moives of RE are shit I hate that they completly miss the horror and the suspence that is in the games. Silent Hill made a pretty good moive but i agree with matt, who cares about the husband. RE5 looks like it will take the place as greatest game ever, the graphics look flawless. Something to leave you guys with...Freddy vs Jason 2 they have been talking about it they wanted to use Ash from Evil Dead and have him fight them both. Sam Rami would not give them rights apparently he and Bruce Cambell still want to make 4. I would love to see that ED4 Hail to the King. Shop smart shop S-Mart -The Four Horsemen-

    What was your favorite movie of all time?
  • H.P.(the nature boy)
    Dawn of the Dead 1978!!!!! I actually thought the remake was the best out of the slew of horror movie remakes. Cowpatty I can say with 98% confidence that the site you found is legit. I say this because I actually stumbled upon it in the very beginning (when all the ethan haas shit was going down) so I don't think it is a fake. The fakes have not shown up since recent. That's why it was so important to get into this from the start. My advice to newcomers is to keep a watchful eye out and if you are uncertain about a site then visit here and ask around. Matt I can't get The Thing out of my head. Have you ever played D2 for the dreamcast. I swear it could be a sequel to that movie. It is much better than that piece of crap they released on the PS2. - 4 Horsemen Woooooooooooo!!!!!!!!-
  • Matt
    Nice. I love the Romero zombie movies (Dawn being my favorite) and also thought the remake was done really well, though missed out on my favorite scene from the original when the two main characters are trying to make it back to safe ground and one of them punches a zombie for seemingly no reason at all. That always cracks me up because it is so goofy and light-hearted in an otherwise somber movie. However, I have to personally throw two more into the remake argument as being in contention for the best in recent years, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes. TCM was both fresh and reverent to the original and Hills took a movie that, while I respect it's influence, I never really liked and made it phenomenal. I can't remember a horror movie that captured so much desperation as that one did. I'm not sure what D2 is and never had a Dreamcast.

How do you feel about the ashless Evil Dead remake, and Evil Dead 4. Sam Raimi is ready to shoot 4 and a no namer is doing Evil Dead. I can't wait. Bubba Hotep was almost enough to hold me over, but I think the time has come to let loose Evil Dead 4. Also have you read Marvel Zombies vs Army of Darkness. It fucking rocks. Glad to here another Horsemen enjoys zombie movies. If you haven't checked out any of the Lucio Fulci zombie flicks then I highly recommend. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Ripper
    Evil Dead without Ash...failure. ED4 w/ Bruce Cambell hell ya. MZ vs AD kicks ass! I have not seen any of his films, that makes me sad because I like to belive that i am a moive expert. I will ook for them and begin to watch thanks for the heads up. Night of the Living Dead remake..WTF! There are some moives that should not be touched Night is one of them. Dawn was a good remake, but no one can touch his directing in zombie moives. -The Four Horsemen-
  • H.P.
    No ripper Night of the living dead 1990 remake was awesome, because it let Tom Savini direct it and do makeup. Something he didnt get to do on the original because he was in vietnam. The recent Night of the Living Dead 3-D I cannot judge because I have yet to see it. Theres a Day of the Dead remake coming out very soon. Ving Rhames is in it so you know it will kick major ass. I loved him in the Dawn remake. Ok now this is cloverfield related it could mean something to someone who is buying into the rage of gods site. I deciphered the code at the bottom. It says "Nothing is what it seems" followed by the date 9/15/08. Horsemen 4 Life
  • H.P.
    Also ripper check out "Man with the Screaming Brain". One of the better Bruce Campbell flicks. Also if you like comic books check out "Comic Book the movie" Bruce Campbell makes a very funny cameo and it stars Mark Hamill. How can you go wrong!!
  • Ripper
    H.P ya for some reason i was not thinking i did love the 1990 remake of night. I have seen both of those cambell flicks both kicked ass! If Rhames is in the day remake i would love that! I did like the dawn remake and it is not fair to say they shouldent remake them because every new directer brings somthing new to the film and i hope Day is as good as Dawn. I want to see some zombie rodeo YAHA!
  • Howard Phillips
    Rhames is playing Rhodes, gonna be hard to top the original Rhodes. He was such a dick. He made you want to jump into the screen and strangle him. I met the guy who played uncle regis in the remake of night. He was wearing a Dawn t shirt and I recognized him from the documentary. Really nice guy and if I let him he would have talked zombies all day, but sadly I has checking him out at a retail store where I was working at time. Your right we def need to see some zombie rodeo.

    H.P i think we are the only two left. Everyone else has jumped ship. -The Two Horsemen-
  • H.P.
    Yeah I been cruising other boards, same deal. Not sure what is going on. I was under the impression that this shit would go on for at least up untill Halloween. Maybe abrams is not finished with the film. Maybe the call sheet being leaked was to get people to think he is done. I think he will take in all that has been said about his clues and do the opposite.

    I'm still here too, H.P. I just haven't found anything of importance to post, or anything of interest to say. But... does that mean that we are now the Three Horsemen? --(Insert number of horsemen here)--
  • H.P.
    I am sure bam is still hanging around. Phenox no worries. You will always be one of the horsemen. We just need to remember to assemble here whenever something comes up. I consider this place to be a headquarters. We dont need to feel obligated to post everyday, me on the other hand I just like posting stuff. Like I said we can talk about anything in here. Zombie movies seem to be the subject in here when not talking cloverfield. Video games and comics would also be cool topics. -The Four Horsemen-
  • http://www.softcom.net/users/chili/cornfed Cowpattybill
    I'm still here also. I don't know much about zombie movies, not my cup of tea if you will, so I haven't been posting. I also have been checking other sites and there seems to be nothing new and all posters have disappeared except the diehards (like us). They will all come swarming back once something new develops. I guess I'm fairly new to this board but I find it to be the best one out there. Lot's of research, and discussion and theory and clue finding. Alot of drama occasionally but overall still the best out there in my opinon. Keep up the good work and I will endeavor to do the same.
  • J J Abrams
    Can I be a Horseman?

    Depends. Are you the same bad ass mother fucker who does the zombie taxidermy. Not sure how that would sit with bam, but if we don't get any word sure I would not be against that.

    For those following along. The site http://www.rageofthegods.com, although it has been labled elsewhere as a bogus site now has a link attached to the code at the bottom. It takes you to this page: http://www.rageofthegods.com/2618792112420.html Not sure what it all means.
  • Cowpattybill
    I found this: http://www.dreadcentral.com/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=2885 Possible plot spoilers. I think it's safe to read because it has just as much a chance of being write, or wrong, as anything else we've heard or read.
  • http://www.softcom.net/users/chili/cornfed Cowpattybill
    Uhh, that would be "right" not "write". I hate spelling things wrong.
  • Phenox1707
    Lol. Me too, Cowpattybill. You're not the only one... As far as random talk until more info pops up, I'm a major video gamer. I'm not a big fan of zombie movies, since the only one I've seen is Shaun of the Dead. Funny stuff.. As far as video games go, right now, I'm re-beating the Zelda series. In my opinion, Zelda will never, ever die. =)
  • H.P.
    First Cowpatty. I looked into both of your links. The second one I believe is far too vague. The first however is very interesting. Speaking as a Lovecraft fan I can say with confidence that it looks to be the underwater city in which cthulhu slumbers. Phenox that's really strange because my girlfriend is replaying zelda games. I love zelda. My girlfriend is obsessed. She wants to get me a replica twighlight princess link costume for halloween. My two fav zelda games are Ocarina and zelda 2. I would be curious to know what order you think the timeline goes in. I think the zelda realm has two realities, thus meaning there are two timelines which make up the series. If they do a movie they need to use the ocarina storyline. -The Four Horsemen-
  • http://www.rotten.com geezer
    i agree h.p., an ocarina of time movie would be pretty cool, and my fav game at the time is resident evil 4 for the wii, i've beaten it 4 times now and it still hasn't gotten old
  • H.P.
    I am playing resident evil 4 wii also. I love survival horror and tactical rpg games like Lapucelle tactics, Disgaea, Phantom Brave, and of course Tactics Ogre. Wish I had more time to play games. I usually set aside two days out of the week to get booted and play games hours on end. I must say that RE4 for the wii is prob the second best game of all time. The first being Ocarina. Now if they did Ocarina Wii version I could die happy. I have yet to dive into Twighlight. My gf beat it and loved every minute of it so I know I'm in for a treat. They put trading cards out for twighlight and my gf is going crazy trying to collect them all. So who would you cast in an Ocarina movie. Link-Decaprio Zelda- Alexis Bledel Gannondorf- Vin Diesel -The Four Horsemen-
  • geezer
    i tried to go to http://www.1-18-08.com and it's no longer there, it leads strait to paramount's home page, pretty weird
  • geezer
    disregard that comment about 1-18-08.com, i think my comp was just bein' retarted
  • geezer
    im suprised there isn't a zelda movie yet, but i would cast john robinson ( http://content.answers.com/main/content/wp/en/thumb/d/dd/180px-JohnRobinsoninElephant.jpg ) as link mia kirshner ( http://l.yimg.com/img.tv.yahoo.com/tv/us/img/site/48/46/0000034846_20061021020832.jpg ) as zelda and i'd have to go with vin diesel also for the role of ganondorf
  • H.P.
    You got me on the link and zelda casting. Guess I was just thinking they would pick big names for a movie like zelda.
  • dudeman
    Ok, heres an idea, im just saying it and you have probably thought about it. But Rob from the trailer has a myspace along with a few other characters from the movie. Now, I think, since the trailer takes place oon 1-18-08, Robs Myspace character doesnt know yet that he is moving to Japan or why. So basically, i think that the Myspace profiles are going to be providing clues and some plot details in the coming months. So keep your eyes on Robs Myspace
  • Cowpattybill
    Is it just me or do the pictures on the 1-18-08.com site seem to be getting bigger? I could have sworn that each photo did not take up that much room on the screen. Maybe it's just my imagination.
  • Cowpattybill
    Check out this link: http://1-18-08news.com/the-1-18-08-phenomenon-shown-in-the-uk/ It says that there is a new line in the trailer that was originally covered over by the roar. I don't know if it's a joke or not. I don't have sound on my computer at work so I don't know what the new line is. Can someone give it a listen and let me know what it says?
  • http://www.softcom.net/users/chili/cornfed/quotes.htm Cowpattybill
    Found this: The Slusho Happy Talk page has been updated. All of the saying have been replaced with new ones. There are no new characters, but one interesting note in the code is that the Jellyfish has been renamed to Squid. It seems very likely that all of theses comments are fan submitted (based on the numerous spelling errors), so I wouldn't put too much weight behind their meaning. Here are all of the new sayings: -Slusho!, thanks for bringing joy to my family's life. But what are you all about? -Slusho is a happy time. I like it. I like it. Uh Huh. -How do I get some of that tasty Slusho? I'm so excited to create my OWN amanzing flavor combinations!!! -BLOOP! -This all is very mysterious. Slusho frightens me, but at the same time I want to drink 6 and be the whale. -I Slushoed myself! -Slusho! the world! -Have you thought about a apple or watermelon flavor slusho? -Is there a whale flavored slusho!? -Hello SLUSHO!!! Your drink is wonderful!! Such great water, with much power, it makes me zoom!SLUSHO!! Will make all the people, fish, donkey, and frog very happy!!! -Strawberry and bluberry are my favorites! -You guys rock I am a whale!" -Like the whale that swam up the Thames river .... we want SLUSHO here in London -Thanks for a GREAT night!!!
  • H.P.
    Is there a specific trailer that has it.
  • Cowpattybill
    I think you have to watch the YouTube clip. I haven't watched it. I read somewhere else that when the cameraman says something like "Guess you should have left earlier" Rob responds with "Shut up" which I guess is different than before. Previously I guess what he said was drowned out by the monsters roar.
  • H.P.
    Rob is most def saying shut up.
  • Cowpattybill
    The trailer was edited by the guy who made this YouTube clip so the question is, did he add in the Shut up or does he have a different trailer (he is in the UK apparently). I noticed the part where Rob's buddy suggests going to the roof is edited out.
  • H.P.
    Cowpattybill you bring something very interesting to mind. What if every country got different trailers. They seem to be the same, but different things can be heard during the chaos. For example "Shut up" would suggest that Rob is being defensive therefore he has something to hide. We obviously didn't get that clue, but the UK did. When the line "It's huge it's alive" is said in our trailer you can clearly hear a cut off almost like someone says something describing the monster and they didn't want us to hear it. There are a bunch of spots like that throughout the trailer and let's face it the explosions and roaring cover it all up quite nicely. We need to find someone with the UK trailer and compare the two. It's like JJ is putting us back to square one. Things should get interesting in here very soon. Only a matter of time before people start fucking with the audio so let's be extra careful. Horesmen Assemble!!!!
  • Phenox1707
    You have a very good point, H.P. People will be releasing fake leads, ones that they themselves edited and created. I think that we need to, as soon as possible, make a full list of links to websites and trailers that we know we can trust. The list can be edited later, if we find a website that is worthy of our trust, but we would need solid proof that the link is indeed related to Cloverfield and is not a false-lead. -Fourth of the Four Horsemen-
  • Cowpattybill
    Good theory HP but how would they get different trailers in different countries? Aren't they all downloaded from the same website. I don't know of any site where you can download the trailer that was linked to or previously downloaded from the Apple site. Unless you think maybe the different trailers were shown in front of Transformers in the theaters in different countries. If that is the case I don't know how we would get our hands on other trailers unless someone pirated each of them. It is an interesting concept. I think Abrams is devious enough to do that. Worth the research I think.
  • Track39
    dont know if anyone has said this idea but what about ancient gods or creatures battling on earth (i know stupid idea right)
  • geezer
    i know http://www.rageofthegods.com is probably not a legit site, but it keeps getting interesting, if you look at it now, they have the map of some kind of island i believe, that kinda looks like a taurus or wildabeast, and it has this weird shadow over it, also, if you click on the simble above the map, it will show you this new york times news paper, the letters are ridiculously small, so i couldn't read them
  • Phenox1707
    I highly doubt that Rageofthegods.com is a legit site. Just checked it out. I did find some interesting things, however... On the main page, called "13152089147 919 239120 920 19551319 09/15/08 (6)", there are two links and the weird picture of the creature (Which I think is what Geezer was talking about above). Click on the symbol above the picture,and you are lead to a page called "20913519" and contains a news article taken from New York Times. I'm not really too sure about this, since I can't zoom in to read any of the words, and it seems to me that the format of the news page is not that of the real New York Times. Click on the page and you open up an e-mail which already has the "Send to:" section filled in with an e-mail address. "666@rageofthegods.com"... 666 as in Hell? Get back to this later. If you go back to the main page, and click on the numbers, It brings you to a picture of... windows? The page goes by the name of "2618792112420". The sky in the picture is a light blue, and fades to darker colors to the right. The sides of the windows seem to have carvings in them... not sure what they are. Also, the bottom of the right window looks like it has a head of some sort on it. I am completely clueless about this page. Now, at about the middle, below the "Window" picture, there is another link, called "Demons Can't Decipher This Code". The only thing on this page is a picture with a long string of numbers on it. Reminds me of Pi... Anyways, at first glance, I noticed that there are a lot of 2's in it. Also, there are some sequences, like somewhere in there there's a line of numbers about 40 in length which is repeated in the next line. The only thing that I've found interesting is the "666" in the e-mail address and "Demons Can't Decipher This Code". Both have references to hell. May be important, may not be. I'm not sure. Anyways, I'm not going to be able to go online until Monday Night, because there are family-related events that I need to be present for, and they involve going on a 5-hour road trip to another state. Lucky me... Lol. I'm going to bring a copy of the number string, and do some work on it. Please investigate anything that you see in this page that I don't. Hope this post helps you out. I will be home until around 5oo PM EMT, so I will be looking for responses until then. -Fourth of the Four Horsemen-
  • Dan
    if u go to 1-18-08.com and wait for exactly 6 minutes..u will here a monstrous roar... someone ona a blog already has uploaded the roar on a mp3. the roar sounds pretty weird like if it was more than one monster well check it out http://1-18-08.blogspot.com/ scroll down to hear the roar or experience it for yourself http://1-18-08.com
  • geezer
    holy shit, that roar thing really works, and now i really truly believe the monster is pregnant. that bellow he/she let out sounds like a whale about to give birth. but anyway, i found somethin phenox, don't know if you saw it yet but highlight the top of the window pic on http://www.rageofthegods.com, it says I BEG 12F Y15U, D12 N15T C12NTINUE 15R Y12U WILL BE IN GREAT DANGER! 12 and 15 = o apparently im guessing they used 12 and 15 becuase the 12th letter of the alphabet is L plus 3 more is O and the 15th letter is O and 15-12 is 3 and 3+3 is 6 i personally take this as a clue since there are 3 pics on the 1-18-08.com site that have the number six on them slusho.jp seems to have six of everything (6 robots, can't drink just six, six navigation buttons etc.) and if you go to the 1-18-08.com site and wait 6 minutes you can hear the monster's roar (like dan stated)
  • sara
    i wish i had something relevant to say, but as i read through all of the comments you guys said it before i could even think it. All these connected sites are crazy, im on the slusho one now. when you roll over the fishy they show pics, someone mentioned them as code words?? cheese, hammer, etc. any more theories on that? and i was wondering, i know everyone has mentioned that they hear someone say "its a lion" or rather; "its alive", in the trailer. why would they say that? if you saw some kind of beast would you say that? of course its alive, that statement doesnt make sense to me. (unless its something that shouldnt be.) anyone? you guys are awesome. i tried to read all the comments but there are soooo many, sorry if this is has already been said/asked/answered.
  • sara
    ok, sorry, reading more i realized the whole lion/alive has been talked to death. so nevermind. im going to try to email the slusho website. anyone tried that yet??
  • geezer
    anybody thought of the alligators in the new york sewer urban legend? what if "slusho" spilled into the sewere line and made a few gators grow, that would sorta explain how the monster came up threw the ground, but since gators don't roar or walk uprite im gonna dismiss my theory
  • Speedy
    I have been following you guys for some time but i might have missed some stuff. One new thing that i think i noticed was on the slusho page. right clicking on the back ground and pressing play causes it to grow and expand its borders. The line at the bottom "Slusho making fresh improvements just for you" becomes highlighted by the shifting back ground. Using the red or yellow rays some anagrams can be made or possibly something more. Or i just might be seeing things. Any ways i found Shriek Jumps (the shriek of the statue followed by the jumping man) A Offer Smog Volt Stuns Plus thousands of others. most seem to be just gibberish. Let me know if any thing has any validity or if i am not making any sense.
  • Thrawn
    Just took a look at the Rage of the Gods site. On the 666 link, in the page long code, the four digits 1942 appear quite a few times together. Perhaps the year has some meaning to the movie. Also, one of the top headlines on that New York times newspaper deals with a "Japanese freighter" doing something. I can't make out the rest. I'm fairly certain the paper is a mock-up of an issue from the past. Another headline reads something about people being hurt while "motoring". When was the last time that word was used in everyday english? Of course, this site could have nothing to do with Cloverfield anyway, so it could all be nonsense. Anybody consider this: I think there is a definite link in theme between Cloverfield and Godzilla (other than the obvious giant monster aspect). It is widely accepted that the whole blame for Godzilla comes from the U.S. and it's use of nuclear weapons. Now, we have Japan responsible (via Slusho) for creating a monster to wreak havok in the U.S. Another possibility, albeit you would have to discount J.J. Abrams' claim that the monster is original, is that this film is a re-make of Gorgo. Mother monster comes to city to find baby monster pulled from the sea by fishermen. Baby monster is kept in circus (by the way, the "motoring" headline above mentioned the circus. See, anything can be linked with a bit of imagination). Just a thought. Dan, good job finding the six minute roar over at the picture site. I upped my volume and waited, and it took me by surprise even when I was expecting it. Creepy.
  • H.P.
    Ok horsemen looks like it was a busy weekend, but really no hard clues popping up. Speedy made an interesting discovery on slusho which is worth checking out. One thing I have a problem with is the roar comparisons. Ill admit it is cool when you find something that sounds like the roar, but honestly I have heard alot of things that sound similar monster wise. When it comes down to it the roar is a good old fashioned monster roar. People over analyzing it in my opinion are wasting time. Sara and speedy got the right idea sticking to slusho. I have a feeling something big will happen on that site very soon. Thrawn your right about JJ turning the tables and making the Japanese villians. Everyone keep up the great work!! Horsemen I would like to see your input on the cuurent state of things soon. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Cowpattybill
    Interesting developments over the weekend. I wonder how many of them were already there but just hadn't been discovered yet (like the roar on 1-18 and the expanding background on slusho.jp). We've said before that the rageofthegods.com site is probably not associated with the movie but I'm curious what it is promoting. What a way to do it. I think Abrams could learn a thing or to from whoever the owner is. Slowing building suspense, rolling out small changes to the site over time. Quietly spelling something out to us. Quite well done in my opinion. Anyway, it's Monday morningand I was just checking in. I've seen the new developments posted here, now it's time I peruse the information superhighway and see if I can add anything new to what we have here. I like the praise a couple people have given this board. I agree, there is a lot of good stuff here.
  • Cowpattybill
  • Cowpattybill
    Okay I found this: http://cloverfieldclues.blogspot.com/ They took the audio from the trailer and broke it down into 6 different channels. The links to each channel can be found in the link above. I tried to post them here but if you post more than 3 links in one post then it assumes it is span and doesn't post it. Anyway, I don't have sound so if someone could listen and post the words, at least the more intersting ones it would be much appreciated. Also found out about a new website that seems as though it might be a message board that has been posted to by members of Rob's party. If it's legit then it gives us some back story on the characters. Seems to be alot of discussion on other boards about the background pictures and stuff. I haven't checked it out yet. I will in a little while.

    WOW! I cant type much now but i am reviewingthe info get back here later. Great work everyone good stuff. Rage of the gods is not legit interesting but it is a decepitve website leading up off track. 1-18-08 cool about the roar but H.P is right over thinking the roar. Slusho. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Cowpattybill
    I did about 5 minutes of looking ont the warbloid site. Just http://www.warbloid.com without the /ganu is an aerial photo of some city (NY is presume). If you type http://www.warbloid.com/images you get a security screen that says: "You must have Ganu's dream first" then asks for user name and password. At first I typed it wrong and got a screen that said something like "The average whale is smarter than you, try again". Interesting stuff. I registered as a user but they have to send you a link to your email address first and I haven't received it yet. The site is layed out very interestingly, a different section for each topic. It get the same eery feeling I got when I looked at the myspace profiles, it seems to organized to be fake.
  • Cowpattybill
    There is so much on this website we could spend endless days disecting it and there will be thousands of theories. I almost dread it. I've only looked a little bit. It appears the site has only been up a couple weeks. The posts all seem to be staged. The forums are broken up into different section of the trailer and other online information but the posts in some of the forums have nothing or little to do with the topic. There is one fella who posts the same thing in several areas. He (or she) is romydeejay12 and he posts a picture and says "let the mystery begin...." The picture is of a bull, a mythological winged creature and a fish/snake (maybe an eel) in the shape of circle, biting it's tail with something that looks like red outlined sperm in the middle of the circle.
  • Cowpattybill
    It seems there are a bunch of hidden links here. For example if you type in http://www.warbloid.com/overnight you get a security log in page but each one has a different saying. Here's what has been found so far. slusho- you will have to take the train overnight- this is when it all happens cloverfield- in cloverfield he finds the truth monstrous- you are getting closer 401broadway- ask a cop for directions 63dregrees- stay cool what comes around goes around alien- in the mist from the water
  • Cowpattybill
    I am now a member of the warbloid site. I looked at the other members and the first few are characters in the movie, then it lists some others, one of them has a myspace page that I don't recall seeing before but it is definitely connected to rob and the rest of them: http://www.myspace.com/marlenadiamond In her pics section, the last pic show her (or someone) hooked up to some kind of ventilation machine or something. Does anyone know what that is? Seems like a strange picture compared to the rest of them. The title of the picture is in reference to the Nick Cage/ John Travolta movie Face/Off.
  • Cowpattybill
  • Cowpattybill
    I've been at the site for the past couple of hours, poking around. It looks legit to me. It seems like they are trying to make Rob and friends real people with real lives in our timeline. Any posts indicating the events of the movie or that something will happen on Jan 18th from other posters are either ignored by Rob and friends, met with skepticism, or the person posting is pretty much shut down. Someone mentioned the photos on 1-18-08.com and Rob responded that they were photshopped nicely Quite interesting. Many comments about Japan, and Slusho, and Rob's trip. Some indication that Beth and Rob are romantically involved and she is very upset about his leaving. There is talk about global warming and many dead whales washing up on shore, particularly in Japan. Lot's of clues I think. Also, during my research I found this: TheParasite from the 1-18-08 News Forums posted this: Email (Edited from original version. Contained personal details). "Cipher, A triangle, and a viral site. That's coming on September first. Not only is this viral marketing going to be the toughest yet, it's supposed to share a similarity with the "The Dark Knight" viral campaign. 1. As you answer the questions, more will be revealed. 2. JJ and Paramount are having a little bout contemplating whether or not to show the monster after you figure the campaign out. 3. More will be revealed about the following: Rob and his marketing. The monster and its origin. Jason. Now, his friend has been right before. So I would believe this. Nick That is all I have for now. That is about all I can do today.

    Okay, I'm lighting up this message board. Found this: http://www.orkut.com/Profile.aspx?uid=13934473099147623824 You'll need a google account to access it. It is much like My Space. Rob, Beth and Jason (who is Rob's brother by the way. I didn't know that) all have profiles here including JJ Abrams. I tend to think it is fake though. The only interesting thing I saw was a website in Jason's profile: http://whereisjason.com/ When you go there it says: Where is Jason? Good Evening, well since you asked.....

    Found this link in my research: http://www.orkut.com/Profile.aspx?uid=13934473099147623824 It's a site similar to My Space. Rob, Beth and Jason (Rob's brother. I didn't know that) all have profiles here as well as JJ Abrams. I don't think the profile's are actually their's. I think they're fake, most of the info copied from My Space. One interesting thing though is on Jason's profile there is a website whereisjason.com When clicked you get: Where is Jason? Funny time to be asking, but since you asked..... Jason is at home. Good-night! Disclaimer: This information is provided from a diary script. Actual events may differ without notice. Mon Aug 27 21:53:42 BST 2007 I think the Disclaimer is the most interesting thing. However. I checked this out a couple hours ago and just now. Previously it said something different. I can't recall exactly what it said but something like: Where is Jason? I don't know but probably at home. Or something like that. I have no idea if this is legit or not. My guess is that it isn't.
  • geezer
    i looked at the http://www.warbloid.com site you put up cowpatty. i got internet explorer 7 which uses tabs, and i noticed that the tab for warbloid.com reads "Rikkyaku Eirian It's here It's alive" probably doesn't mean anything, but im gonna look into it
  • dudeman1
    ok, when you go to http://www.warblooid.com/slusho there is a strange looking picture. After studying it and messing around with the brightness I figured out that the wierd light effects are really a picture of a staircase railing. Thats what it looks like. I studied further, and noticed on the top of the railing thing hidden in the wall texture is a creature. Dragon looking with horns. Its hand is on one of the railings also. Im going to try to do a photoshop of this to make it easier to see

    Just got back from my family trip, and I'd have to say, I'm glad that we have made some progress while I was gone. Good work people, especially Cowpattybill. I commend you on your massive discoveries. I'm now doing a scan through warblooid.com, and I'm not sure what to make of it just yet. But still, your efforts should not go un-noticed. Thank you. First thing I noticed was the only link on the entire page. If you press tab on Mozilla or IE, you can see where all the links are. The only link on the page is on an island to the right, and it seems to be on a building or a certain, specific part of the island. I think someone should look into where this place is, and what place or thing is located where the link is. In fact, I'm going to go on Google Earth right now and see what I can get. Just thought I'd throw it out there. -Fourth Horseman, Phenox1707-
  • Cowpattybill
    The most irritating person on the warbloid site is flipboitamidles. He has a picture from the trailer with two characters from the slusho website but he jumps into every conversation with some"what are you talking about" defense. I don't think he's part of the party crew but he pretends he is.
  • geezer
    theres a new picture on the http://www.warbloid.com/slusho , its a pic of what looks like a park entrance, you can see a statue of an angel like creature in the background along with some people in front of it. and in front of all that is a very very blury person, it looks like the person was moving pretty fast when the pic was taken, im not sure if there is a link between the staircase pic and this pic though
  • Cowpattybill
    I don't think the person was moving fast, I think it was a time lapse photo, or a slow shutter speed. Probably a name for that but I'm no photographer.
  • Cowpattybill
    Also, the whereisjason site now says: Good Afternoon, well since you asked..... Jason will be leaving the office around now.
  • geezer
    i captured this from the 1-18-08 trailer at apple.com http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k142/BIGGEORGEFROMHS/cloverfieldmantis.jpg kinda looks like a praying mantis don't you think?
  • Cowpattybill
    Where is that picture from. What part of the trailer? Also, whereisjason now says: Good Afternoon, well since you asked..... Jason will be on his way home from the office at present.
  • Phenox1707
    This is weird. At first, we're all in a stale mate. We don't know what to do next, and we even start talking about zombie movies. Now, only a few days later, there are so many things to look into that I can't keep track. The man in the new http://www.warblooid.com/slusho/ picture can't be moving fast in my opinion. It looks to me like he is standing still, or just walking. Plus, if he was moving really fast, it usually shows some sort of trail where he moved from, or something to that effect. It looks to me like he is phasing, or perhaps fading away or something. I may be horribly off, but it's just my thoughts. As to whereisjason.com, maybe the message changes by time or something? Or maybe they're changing it to throw us off...? -Four Horsemen-
  • H.P.
    Everyone is missing the most important info on warbloid. Slusho comes from whales. This changes everything.
  • geezer
    i captured the photo right before the camera cuts to rob and he says "i dont know im like your main dude" if you watch the trailer at apple.com and go frame from frame you can clearly see it
  • Cowpattybill
    HP - I caught that info about the whales but didn't think it that important. There seems to be some strong references to global warming and whales dying and that this has some impact on slusho. The whereisjason.com site does keep changing. Now it says: Good Evening, well since you asked..... Jason is probably at home at present. I only keep mentioning it because it was part of his profile at the orkut.com site. Again, I don't know if it's legit or not, my guess is not, but I thought I would keep tabs on it just in case. As for the still from the trailer. I'm convinced that there are no hidden images in it. I think there are clues from the items in it but not hidden images (like the demon seen between the hair of the two girls in the photo on the website - which has been proven earlier that it is the same girl photoshopped into two). Do we know what city it is in the aerial photo on the warbloid splash page?
  • Phenox1707
    It's no big deal, Cowpattybill. In fact, we need all of the hints/clues we can get, and whereisjason.com could be a key part, for all we know. As for the City on warbloid, I'm not sure. I scanned through all of New York yesterday, and didn't see anything like it. I'm going to scan through Japan today, though. All I know for certain is the picture was in fact a screenshot from Google Earth. The way the buildings and the boats surrounding the islands are shown closely resemble that from Google Earth. -Four Horsemen-
  • Cowpattybill
    Someone found a couple more warbloid.com/centralpark - Find a place to hide warbloid.com/libation - the drink that satisfies whereisjason now says: Funny time to be asking, but since you asked..... Jason is at home. Good-night!
  • Cowpattybill
    Definition of libation (according to dictionary.com): –noun 1. a pouring out of wine or other liquid in honor of a deity. 2. the liquid poured out. 3. Often Facetious. a. an intoxicating beverage, as wine, esp. when drunk in ceremonial or celebrative situations. b. an act or instance of drinking such a beverage.

    damn i have been gone for a while dont have time to read everything tho but can som just pot real quick on wats new has happend?? new sites?? etc
  • dudeman1
    alrighty. The Image of the City at http://www.warbloid.com is of a port near Tokyo called Port Yokahoma heres a Link http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://asterweb.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/images/tokyo-x.jpg&imgrefurl=http://asterweb.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery-detail.asp%3Fname%3DTokyo&h=1286&w=900&sz=1350&hl=en&start=11&um=1&tbnid=MmlKaKj3Vo2HeM:&tbnh=150&tbnw=105&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dtokyo%26svnum%3D10%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN lol wow that was big. Anyways, also a relevant post on the warbloid forums http://warbloid.com/ganu/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=69 its under Places>Japan, THe link goes to it, its the first post about boats exploading and Sinking in Tokyo bay which is what the image is of Alos, not sure if it is relevant with the word Libation, but a possible connection. Cloverfield is a Wine Brand http://www.cloverfield.co.za/ lol sorry, thats all i have
  • Speedy
    This new site seems to have some great potentials but i am conserned with its authenticity. In psychology there is something called Hind sight bias. We have to keep our eyes open for other sites and search the ones we know. Personally i say sit back and wait. I have a feeling it might be fake. The connections are just to easy to be made. Everything we find is something that we already knew. Keep searching it for now. By the way how was the sight discovered? Is their any proof that it is related to 1-18-08? Does it have any new information? not something we already new. Remember Hind sight is 20/20
  • dudeman1
    Also about 24 seconds into the trailer there is a couple of bottles of wine on a wall-rack. Butt they are upside down. Just shootig for the starts, but perhaps Cloverfield Wine? I cant tell, just throwin it out there
  • H.P.
    Hey bam I would read posts 870-919. Should pretty much bring you up to speed. Nice to see a fellow horsemen back in the mix. --------]=4HORSEMEN=[---------
  • Cowpattybill
    Wow dudeman1, how did you figure out where the arial picture was from? I spend probably 1/2 hour using Google Earth looking all around New York and Japan and I couldn't find it. You found it through a NASA page. How did you do that? I think the word Cloverfield originated because I read that it is the street name that his offices are on. I don't think it has anything to do with wine. I think the libation word might have something to do with Slusho. I think the warbloid site is legit. I think that the characters are set up there and are in our timeline so things will progress towards Rob leaving in January. I think there are some people in there that will help drop some clues from time to time (the site admins) and a few who are pretending to be a part of it (flipboitamidles) and then the rest of us. It is puzzling that all the questions as seem to just hint at the big white elephant in the room (the 1-18-18 movie) but nobody comes right out and says, "hey there's a big white elephant in the room. How did it get here and why can't you see it?" The site seems to have some new information that we didn't previously have. I think things like global warming, whales dying, ships sinking, places in Japan that Rob will visit, are all clues. That's my $0.02
  • Cowpattybill
    whereisjason now says: Good Afternoon, well since you asked..... Jason is at the office at the moment and will be going ice-skating after work.
  • Phenox1707
    Just thought of something. I know it has been thought of before, but I don't remember it being discredited. At about 1:26 into the movie, you can hear a few people saying "Where's Jason?" and "Can anybody see Jason?". Obviously, whereisjason.com is a reference to that part of the trailer. This makes me think that this website is important somehow. Maybe the part where it says "Jason is..." is important, since that part is indeed the only part that constantly changes... Just a thought. -The Four Horsemen-
  • Cowpattybill
    I assume the where's Jason dialogue is from the trailer. Is it from the one of the separate audio tracks linked above in post #890? I was hoping, since I have no audio, that someone would post the dialogue that was revealed in these separate audio tracks but no one has done that yet. I guess I will have to use a friends computer that has sound. I guess the validity of the whereisjason site depends on the validity of the orkut.com profiles mentioned in post 901. I will keep tabs on it though. Currently it says: Good Evening, well since you asked..... Jason has finished work for the day and is currently ice-skating.
  • H.P.
    Jason lives in Japan and works for slusho. He pulls strings and gets Rob(his little brother a job) Jason was supposed to return to be there at the surprise party. Rob and Jason have been exchanging over the phone and through emails for quite some time. Jason tells Rob he won't make the party due to the recent developments of JJthulhu awakening and destroying Hokkaido(a slusho link at this point is unknown) nobody is allowed to leave. Jason doesn't tell anyone else and just lets most friends think he is still showing. Some people know and some don't. The main characters know and the minor characters don't. Rob knows there is no way he is going to Japan, but doesn't wanna tell anyone because at this point Japan is covering things up. Jason sends slusho mix a couple days prior to beth who then makes drinks with it at Rob's party. Due to the total lack of slusho in the states JJthulhu is attracted to New York City. That's my theory so far. As for the monster I believe it to be a donkey, whale, frog, bird, squid hybrid. Extremely terrifying and only seen a total of six times in the movie. 4Horsemen =[=====>
  • Phenox1707
    I have a few things to say about your theory, H.P., although it is a good base to work off of. 1. Rob is one of the people asking where Jason is when they are on the streets in the trailer, so Jason had to be at the party, at least once. 2. "JJthulhu"... That supposed to be JJ Abrams and Cthulhu mixed, I take it... right? 3. If you are right about the awakening of JJthulhu, then Japan wouldn't have been able to keep it a secret. Think about it... how did Google Earth come to be? The US takes pictures of the entire planet from satellites in space. Either JJthulhu would be detected by them, or radar from passing ships or airplanes from other countries. 4. How do you know that the monster is seen only six times? 5. Where did you come up with the donkey/whale/frog/bird/squid hybrid?? 6. Is that supposed to be a Sword at the bottom? Lol Other than that, I think it's good. Good job. =) -Four Horsemen-
  • Cowpattybill
    I think I can answer those questions Phenox. It only appears 6 times because the number six has been a recurring theme in many clues. It's a donkey, whale, frog, bird, squid hybrid because these have all been animals included in clues (think slusho website). I agree with you about Japan being wiped out and not being detected. Can't be done. I like HP's theory, it includes many of the ideas thrown about so far. It doesn't mention anything about multiple creatures (although smaller) tearing up the city or perhaps zombies of some kind. I never thought that slusho might be served at the party. Makes sense. That is probably what Rob is drinking in the photo on the website. That would explain why the significance of the photo.
  • H.P.
    Just having fun, but I will answer a fellow horsemen's questions. 1. He could be playing dumb in light of the information he recieved from Jason last minute. 2. That's my official name for the monster. Your right it is a mix. 3. The U.S. knows what is happening, but of course they would cover it up. 4. Six shows up a number of times in the viral marketing. Most of the clues have to do with the monster I assume. 5. Those animals show up on slusho. 6. Yeah I'm playing D&D tactics and felt inspired enough to bust out some artwork from my MS DOS days. Remember those text based RPG's. -Horsemen for life-

    I found something intersting on warbloid site. Part of a message posted by Robby (Rob Hawkins) was: I've ask for it at in a few different places down on Canal, but nobody has it yet. It was in reference to the different flavors. I posted: Robby, you said 'I've ask for it at in a few different places down on Canal, but nobody has it yet' What and where is 'Canal'? We'll see if I get a response.
  • Cowpattybill
    Okay, got a bit of chill going down my spine at the moment. I found the area indicated on the warbloid splash page on Google Earth. I noted where the link is on the splash page (indicated by Phenox1707 in post 906). I zoomed in on that area in Google Earth. It appears to be a building that has some Japanese characters on it. I don't know how to decipher them so I will leave that up to someone else. Again, if you zoom into the general area indicated by the link on the splash page you will see blue building in the corner right near the water. Just East of it there is another squarish building (3 to 5 stories high it looks). On the top of building are 4 characters. What do they represent? This could be a clue.
  • Cowpattybill
    I guess I should specify that in Google Earth I typed in Tokyo, Japan and it took me right there.
  • Phenox1707
    Thank you, Cowpattybill, this has helped me a lot, because new I know about which buildings we are talking about. Here's a link to a picture that I got from Google Earth: http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t313/thelostsoul15/TokyoJapan.jpg I made a Red Box around the building that Cowpattybill saw, with the blue Japanese letters. The Blue Box has a spot which I at first thought might be the spot. Here's a picture of the Japanese symbols on the building that Cowpattybill was talking about. I drew them in paint, so they might not be too accurate, but it's the best I could come up with: http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t313/thelostsoul15/JApaneseLetters.jpg Hope this helps you out. By the way, I might be wrong on the letters. Japanese letters are written and read from top to bottom, so they might need to be rotated before they can be read properly. -Horsemen 4 Life-
  • H.P.
    The monster launches smaller squid parasites which infect people. The black stuff people throw up is ink. The small squid hosting in the human allows it to navigate and infect others in a more agile way. The squid eventually grow after bonding with a whale. They only bond with humans who have had slusho. The ones that don't have slusho in thier bodies get eaten by the parasite.

    i never knew there were 2 statue of liberty's.. besides the imitation of it called "the statue of liberation" in memphis,TN. but anyay, i was looking through the slusho site and the 1-18-08 trailer just for the hell of it, looking for codes or numbers etc. and i noiced rob's frat pledge paddle. i've seen it before, but i never really thought anything of it. it says AKM, which is alpha kappa mu. i decided to look up the origin of the words, on alpha, i got pretty much of nothing, on kappa, i got this http://www.pinktentacle.com/2007/03/edo-period-kappa-sketches/ a japanese river imp, and on mu i got http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mu_(lost_continent), and if you know lovercraft, you have heard mu before in the cthulhu mythos

    Phenox1707, what is with the blue rectangle in your picture?
  • Cowpattybill
    In Google Earth I found the statue of liberty. I am no good at posting pictures but I can tell you that it is North West of the building with the Japanese letters on it, on the waters edge. It is almost due south of the elbow in the bridge that connects the island to the mainland, to the right of an orangey colored walkway. You have to zoom in to around 800ft to see it.

    Wikipedia says this about the number of replicas of the Statue of Liberty: Hundreds of other Statues of Liberty have been erected worldwide. During the 1950s and 60s, the Boy Scouts of America worked hard to donate replicas of Lady Liberty to small towns across America. There is a sister statue in Paris and several others elsewhere in France; they also exist in Austria, Germany, Italy, Japan, China, and Vietnam; one existed in Hanoi during French colonial days. There are replicas in theme parks and resorts, including the New York-New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on the Strip, replicas created as commercial advertising, and replicas erected in U.S. communities by patriotic benefactors, including no less than two hundred donated by Boy Scout troops to local communities
  • Cowpattybill
    BTW, I got a response to my question on warbloid but not by Rob. My answer came for cjthedj and he/she said: canal street in NYC C.J. I looked on Google Earth and discovered that Canal St and Broadway intersect. If I recall correctly, Broadway is the street that the head of the SOL come rolling down. There is a big sign on one of the buildings in the trailer that says 401 (which is right near Canal street). Don't know if it means anything but I look putting things together, even if they don't amount to anything.
  • H.P.
    401 is the area code for Rhode Island. Rhode Island is where the Cthulhu Mythos was concieved. It is the OCEAN state (I live in Rhode Island). Just thought I would throw that out there.
  • Cowpattybill
    Does anyone know where the picture at warbloid.com/slusho is taken at? I tried to search the internet looking for a picture of the statue in the background and couldn't find anything. Perhaps if we could figure that out we might have another clue.

  • Cowpattybill
    I wish I had sound! Another random connection I just made. On Jamie's MySpace page (Jamie is the one who wants her hotness spread across the world) there is a link to a random survey she filled out. The link: http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=217778567&blogID=291145017 One of the questions was: Where is your least favorite place to be? Her response: Atlanta. And Chino, California. Smells like the inside of my ass. On the warbloid site there is a character named flipboitamidles that has a signature that says: Location: Chino, CA (DOES NOT SMELL LIKE THE INSIDE OF JAMIE'S ASS!) Now I know where that came from. Also, not a connection but on Rob's MySpace page, in the photo section, he is wearing the same shirt in all the photos but one. There are several comments on his shirt. I wonder if it is a clue. It is an odd shirt. I wonder if in the last photo, his shirt combined with his brothers shirt means anything.
  • Cowpattybill
    Some more warbloid links: /011808 - (contains a picture of a spotlight or flash of light and a building) /thetrain- 53 meters /underthebridge- (something is suppose to be here but it doesnt load properly) I didn't find these, I got them off one of the posts on the warbloid site.

    I had heard the bloop thing mentioned before in other boards but didn't do much research into it. I have now and find it interesting as well. Perhaps that will be used in the movie.
  • Cowpattybill
    A theory that I just read about on the warbloid site suggested that 1-18-08 is not the date that "IT" happens. It could really just be the date the movie is released. The fact that everyone is dressed lightly and have tans, there is no snow on the ground. Seems to be a summery type evening. This makes sense unless the hints about global warming have something to do with it. I must admint, I hadn't considered this theory before.
  • Cowpattybill
    Finally, a somewhat direct answer on the warbloid site. Since I started checking it out there have been random questions asked by visitors that pertained to the movie. So far everyone (the admins and the cast) have been playing stupid pretending they know nothing about the movie. One person in particular starting asking why if they new nothing about the movie, is the forum setup with sections that pertain to the movie. Here is the questioning: - Hey brother, there are no stupid questions. Direct or not, you can ask away. _________________ Des (site admin) - are the times in the Time forum important? _________________ kain - they're the timestamps on the photos over at http://www.1-18-08.com _________________ god - duh. _________________ kain - Yes, the times are important and they will become more important in the future. _________________ Disraeli (site admin)

If people ingest more than six in becomes hard to get out of the system therefore allowing more hosting time for the squid parasites. I think the reason Rob is the main dude is because he has been getting Slusho from Jason. For whatever reason legality or maybe an embargo slusho is not attainable in the states. It's a Japan exclusive. Basically everyone at the party has had slusho from Rob. It's a party drink. It makes you happy all the time, cures diseases, and just overall improves living. Sounds like something the U.S, would ban. Since Jason works in the slusho factory he can get it in powder form. -That's all a got for now hope you guys enjoy it- 4Horsemen ==[======>
  • Phenox1707
    So... you're basically saying that Slusho has drugs in it or something? Cause that could be a very good thought...
  • H.P.
    It could be something the whale is eating. Maybe it's some weird space parasite the whales are eating in JJthulhu's lost city. Then the slusho scientists extract it from the whales.
  • dudeman1
    About one billion (yes billion) years ago, life on Earth was still at the multi-cell level and they remained mostly in their habitat. One of the organisms was more passive and preferred a symbiotic relationship for their survival. Another (and there were more) was more aggressive and preferred to control larger beings for their survival. Back then, the world had only one continent. The two organisms were separated, for the most part, by land. But the aggressive organism had developed a taste for the passive one and tried to feed on it as often as possible by going around the land mass. Until a cataclysmic event changed things, burying most of the ancient organisms under the oceans. The surviving organisms either died off or evolved (later becoming humans and what not). Fast forward to present day and we have Japan discovering the passive organisms buried off their coast and eventually came to the conclusion that the American continents (North and South) had drifted over the aggressive organisms (more on them later) during the past billion years. Japanese scientists begin studying this passive organism and find that it is a perfect nourishment supplement to humans. Grown in an agricultural field on the island of Hokkaido, Japan, these organisms create the appearance of cloverfields. The scientists learn that these organisms are beneficial symbiotic parasites that give us additional nourishment and make us feel happy. Thus humans and the parasites become one. They are kept cold to prevent them from dying from exposure until they are introduced into their host. Thus the development of the awesome and delicious drink – Slusho! (It makes me happy). Rob is a college graduate who has been hired by Slusho and has just accepted an offer to work in their technologies division in Japan. Rob also knows the basics of the organism, the story that Slusho “invented” as a marketing campaign and has recently been informed that the scientists have found trace amounts of the aggressive organism. Whabam (Not Mine, i know a scource) This aggressive organism likes to pool up into a larger being, control it, own it, even change it. It also eats the smaller passive organism much the same way a whale will eat plankton. Slusho is now one of the most popular drinks. In it’s own right it is a tasty meal that does not add fat and is proven to be healthy with claims that it cures cancer and many other diseases. Slusho and it’s by-products are now being flushed (literally) into the sewer systems and drained out to sea by way of urine, fecal matter and just straight unconsumed Slusho. This builds up on the ocean floor and eventually awakens a very hungry and aggressive organism. This aggressive organism, hungry and well, aggressive, follows the sewer trail back to New York and emerges through the sewers breaking and igniting a natural gas pipeline in it’s effort to feed on the passive organism, which is now us.

    /slusho has now changed to the brooklyn bridge.
  • Cowpattybill
    More new changes on the warbloid site. /video - apparently used to say "you havent mixed your flavor yet" but now doesn't work again /underthebridge -(shows a pic of a sign that reads 224600) /401broadway - (shows pic of building) - I've read that the building is on fire but for some reason I can't see that part of it. It was suggested to look at it full screen which I tried but still couldn't see anything to indicate it was on fire.

    Hmmm.... Odd post on the warbloid site. Seems a bit of a puzzle. http://warbloid.com/ganu/viewtopic.php?f=68&t=39&start=10 Des (site admin) says: We miss many things every day. There's always more to find, but if I might offer a word of advice, don't be foolish and loose site of the moment. For most of us it's all we have. Kirk (not sure if he's part of the movie or not, I don't think so) says: The moment and the past. Memories are important, too. emperorql (who I believe to be part of cast) says: Seems like the train will take me somewhere My question is Who am I Where am I going From Honshu to Hokkaido I have tried but find myself coming back to MacDougal to Broadway Cheers Anyone make anything of it? It appears that it might have something to do with the username/password screens that pop up.

    On the warbloid site I asked Rob when he was leaving for Japan. His response was: I was suppose to leave on the 18th of January, but I just found out that it might be delayed a day or two. Thanks for the frequent flyer offer but the company is paying for everything.

    I have to share something that I thought was really funny. I've been saying for awhile now that flipboitamidles is a fake on the warbloid site. I finally called him out and got this private message from him: "ahahahaha u caught me! lol, but don't tell anyone else, trying to act normal because maybe the people who made this forum might slip something to me, who knows " To this I responded: "Sure, I'll play along. Although I'm sure the people who created the site know your not with them so I'd be surprised if they slip anything." His reply was: "lol yeah thats true. so are you trying to get some answers? because i c you going around asking questions lol" His comment made me laugh I must say. I haven't replied yet but my thought is, why would I ask questions if I didn't want answers? Anyway, just thought I would share. I have a new question on the board asking JJ who he works for. I'm hoping to add credibility to HP's plot synopsis.

    i got bored tonite and decided to decipher the katakana symbols on the slusho.jp page i got this on the downloads button the first symbol means "da" the second is "u" the third is "n" the fourth is "ro" the 5th one is a soundmark symbol (don't really know how they use the soundmark) the sixth one is "do" on the store button the first one is either "shi" the second one is "yo" the third one is "tsu" the fourth one is "pu" on the happy talk button the first is "ha" the second is "tsu" the thrid is "pi" the fourth is another soundmark symbol the sixth is "to" the seventh is also a sound mark symbol the eigth is "ku" on the flavors button the first is "fu" the second is "re" the third is another sound mark symbol the fourth is "ba" and the fifth is another soundmark thats all i could really find, the history and customer feedback sections were too difficult (i was too lazy to find them)

    Hey i was searching for more stuff about 1-18-08 and found this http://www.joblo.com/new-1-18-08-trailer if you go there, on the article they have a new image or trailer poster of 1-18-08 which is pretty small but it looks like the hand of the statue of liberty buried underground on top of the image it says " Run.Fast" with 1-18-08 at the bottom of the image dont know if this was photoshopped or not but the image looks legit so check it out n lets see what develops from this
  • Dan
    ^^^^^Nevermind ^^^^ the pic is indeed fake but it is well done lol sry guys
  • geezer
    got some new info in the trailer you can hear Wolfmother's "Woman" playing in the background right before the monster's roar. on that same album there is a song titled "Joker & the thief" and on that song there is a line that goes "can you see the joker flying over the field of clover, watching out everyday, i wonder what would happen if he took her away" field of clover = cloverfield?? also, if you look at wolfmother's self titled album cover you can see what looks like a lizard tail attached to this nymph looking creature. i also think i see tenticles rapping around her arm "joker & the theif" lyrics: http://music.yahoo.com/Wolfmother/Joker-And-The-Thief/lyrics/32002946 album cover: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c1/Wolfmother_album_cover.jpg

    another thing, the name wolfmother comes from the latin origin "Madrevius di lupovius" which means "children born of the beast will steal the shadow of the forest and chase the stars from the night" where i found this info: http://www.popworld.com/pages/artist?7DD120BE-A6BD-4E04-82FA-0BD80609F186

    Found a post on warbloid.com that has this link: http://www.michaelminn.net/newyork/cent ... erse_Roads It shows the bridge that is in the picture on /011808. The one with the numbered sign. It seems that this is the the bridge where a video and still photos of a scene being filmed for the movie were taken by onlookers.

  • dudeman1
    an attorney named Lori N. Boatright has registered a trademark for the title Overnight, and this just happens to be the same Lori Boatright who did the same for the trademarks protecting Abrams' Bad Robot production company, as well as a pair of slogans thought to be connected with the upcoming movie. Translation? It seems like a pretty safe bet that 1-18-08/Cloverfield is actually going to be called Overnight -- or that someone wants to make a bunch of hyper-caffeinated movie afficionados think that's what it'll be called, which would be sort of a mean trick, but also very funny.
  • H.P.
    Lori N Boatright sounds like a code name. Overnight sounds like a code as well. Let's face it everything happening is not straight forward. I have heard the overnight theory more times than I care to. Everyone claims they now of an attorney registering rights. Its all just misleading.
  • dudeman1
    ok, wtf. I just went to 1-18-08.com and was messin with t eh pictures. I was on the one taken at 12:04 and clicked and jerked my mouse. THe picture flips over and says "Robbie, Here use this photo to send a messege of my hotness far and wide!!! Im gunna miss the hell out of ya!! Love Jamie (heart heart)" GO Try it. THe pictures flip over with a nice jerk of the mouse at 1-18-08.com
  • dudeman1
    Ok, the pictures at 1-18-08 can be fliped over by clicking on them and sorta jerking the mouse. Two of the pictures have messages on the back. The on at 12:01 of Rob geteting a shot poured down his mouth says "Dont Forget who takes care of you! Love J" Then the one taken at 12:04 says " Lascano, platte and Robby - Jan 2008 Here use this photo to send a message of my hotness far and wide!!! Im gunna miss the hell out of ya!! Love Jamie" All the pictures flip, those two have messages on the back, go check it out. Totally accidently found that out. GO
  • dudeman1
    sorry, i think that may have been old news. Got excited
  • Cowpattybill
    Yes, that's VERY old news. No problem though. Nice to know someone is still poking through the ashes looking for warm coals (meaning that the 1-18-08 website has been scoured mercilessly for clues). The ability to flip the pictures has actually become sort of a joke where every few days someone on a board will post something like, "hey did you know that you can flip the pictures if you shake them" and everyone gets a little chuckle. The Overnight trademark is pretty old new too. But hey, at least you haven't given up like most people seem to have. Keep up the good work dudeman1.
  • dudeman1
    yeah, what can I say, I didnt even see the trailer until mid august so im some what behind.
  • Cowpattybill
    Looks like someone was going in the same direction I was. I found a post of someone who did some research on the buildings in the area of the picture on warbloid splash page. It seems some of the buildings in the area (and possibly the one indicated by the link on the splash page - which may or not be the one with Japanese writing on top) belong to the Asagami Corporation. Their website is: http://www.asagami.co.jp/hp2004/english/index.html Seems they specialize in warehousing, 3rd party logistics, transportation, harbor services, and printing services. Don't know if that helps us at all but there it is.
  • Cowpattybill
    Okay, I'll post this here. Not because I believe the guy (I don't) but because I don't have the equipment necessary to try it and thought one of you might want to give it a shot and see if he's right. I don't believe "Rob" just because it is in all CAPS and doesn't give any helpful information other than what he saw. I think he just likes the idea of someone spending an hour or so trying to do what he suggests. Here it is: ROB — September 2, 2007 @ 6:04 am I BROKE THE CODE…..LET ME EXPLAIN…YOU HAVE TO USE THE PICTURES PROVIDED ON THE WEBSITE AND YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD THE TRAILER WHEN YOUR LOOKING AT THE PICS YOU NEED TO USE THE TIMES IN THE PICTURE (THE SECONDS) TO MATCH IT TO THE FRAME IN THE TRAILER. YOU NEED TO RUN THE TRAILER REALLY SLOW ON WUTEVER PROGRAM YOU HAVE ON YOUR COMPUTER, BECOUSE IT HAS TO BE THE RIGHT FRAME, LIKE WHEN IT SAYS 12:36 YOU HAVE TO USE THE FRAME AT 36:00 SECONDS, THE 12:04 FRAME YOU USE IN THE NEXT MINUTE OTHERWISE YOU’LL JUST GET A PIC OF THE PARAMOUNT MOUNTAIN, TRUST ME IT GETS ANNOYING TRYING TO DO IT OVER AND OVER….AFTER YOU GET FINISHED WITH THIS, IF YOU DO IT RIGHT YOU WILL REALIZE THAT IN EACH FRAME THAT YOU FREEZE A WORD POPS UP IN THE CORNER OF THE SCREEN, YOU WILL KNOW IT WHEN YOU SEE IT….THE FIRST 4 GIVE YOU A PHRASE, AND THE LAST ONE GIVES YOU AN EMAIL ADRESS OF SATOSHI@SLUSHO.JP, SO I EMAILED THE PHRASE AND I WAS EMAILED TODAY WITH THE WITH A CODE AND A WEBSITE. THEY SEEM TO BE PRETTY SERIUOS ABOUT IT CUZ U HAVE TO TYPE IN YOUR SOCIAL SECUITY # YOUR ADRESS AND THE WHOLE WORKS BEFORE YOU CAN USE YOU CODE. AFTER YOU REGISTER IT LETS YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU CAN ACCESS THE ACCOUNT SITE 1 TIME WITH YOUR CODE AND IT WILL NOT ACCEPT IT AGAIN, TRUST ME I TRIED…….ANYWAY IT SHOWS YOU AN EXTENDED TRAILER, IT SHOWS YOU THE MONSTERS FOOT, AND IT KINDA SHOWS YOU THE SHADOW OF THE SIZE…IT’S REALLY BIG, NEEDLESS TO SAY THIS IS NOT A GODZILLA REMAKE, BECUASE IT TELLS YOU THE NAME OF THE MOVIE AT THE END. IM NOT ONE TO SPOIL A SUPRISE, BUT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIGURE IT OUT NOW….GOOD LUCK

    I believe it's BS anyway. I tried to do what he talked about and I didn't see any words. Nor did someone else who posted after him.
  • Cowpattybill
    The warbloid.com splash page changed. It now looks like a close up of a painting of an apple on a yellow background. I'm sure that's not what it is but that was my first impression.
  • Cowpattybill
    /slusho is no longer a picture. It is now a security screen again but it now says "Seven" /401broadway now says "The door is closed" /underthebridge now say "It's coming" /011808 now says "Time is not an option"
  • Cowpattybill
    /cloverfield still has the security screen but for me it automatically filled in the User name with "thecop" and had a password. I clicked okay but didn't do anything but wipe out the password. I don't remember ever trying thecop as a password so I don't think it was remembering it from a past try. Does anyone else get the same thing?
  • Cowpattybill
    I find it odd on the warbloid site, and maybe I just don't understand how it works, but on the main page it shows Topic = Try This and shows that it has 11 pages and 105 replies yet when you click on it, it only shows 6 pages and 51 replies. Are the other ones deleted or do I have some kind of option triggered that only shows some posts? I'm asking because what if there were 105 replies but half of them were removed by admins because they were too offensive or maybe they gave away too much information. Any thoughts?
  • Cowpattybill
    Okay, warbloid splash page. Definitely buildings in the background. It is night, there are lights on in the buildings. The yellow color is mist or fog or something like that. If someone had some software that would allow you to mess with the contrast, or color or whatever you might be able to more clearly see whatever the purply/red/blackish blob thing is. It might be a person, it might be a raptor-like creature, who knows.
  • dudeman1
    I cant get the splash page to load anything... damn
  • dudeman1
    and with that all cap thing from "ROB" I have watched the trailer over and over frame by frame trying to analyze and find something new since i saw it. (I get bored and drunk alot) and I have never seen any hidden words pop up. So, im going to label "Rob" as someone trying to get attention and start something
  • Denisse
    what splash page, if i may ask? just about everything has a security screen now. p.s. you go cowpattybill...on a roll! :)
  • dudeman1
    http://www.warbloid.com is the splash page ( Think) and theres suppose to be a new image there, but i cant see anything. Its just blank for me
  • Denisse
    blank for me too.
  • dudeman1
    I think something is going to be revealed on Friday. JJ said he was releasing something in september. And Im just fallowing along and taking hints, but when you go to warbloid.com/slusho it says SEVEN. This friday is the 7th, and new movies come out on fridays. So maybe a new trailer...
  • dudeman1
    According to such websites as bloody-disgusting.com and IGN.com and more, there’s a highly speculative rumor that 1-18-08 director Matt Reeves is considering naming the movie “Wreck.” Just another rumor and possible codename. Just read about it, thought I would share. Again, Probably just another code name, IF anything
  • geezer
    the warbloid page is blank for me also. anyway, me and a few of my friends are going to make a second 1-18-08 trailer of our own on friday. i already made a mini script and got the materials but im having second thoughts on script, if anybody has a good idea for a script or wants to read the script i already have, let me know

  • Dan
    i found this post on a 1-18-08 blog..check it out ___________________________________________ Insiders Guide To Cloverfield/1-18-08/Slusho A post on the Cloverfield IMDB forums has revealed inside information on the new JJ Abrams monster film. Usually, these posts are full of wild ideas with way too elaborate details on the movie. This guy, however, has filed a basic and logical summary of the movie. Essentially, the post tells of how the producers got in over their heads on a real basic action film. Fan frenzy diverted time and resources to rewrites and trying to live up to the hype. Below is the post in its entirety. (Potential Spoilers Warning!) "So before I go any further... If you don't want to know the details of the movie.. than don't read after this point.. I won't give away everything.. but just certain things we've all been wondering. IT IS LONG AND I APOLOGIZE, BUT I WANTED TO GIVE AS MUCH INFO AS I CAN.... So.. basically I came across this board and found a lot of interesting theories and many ridiculous ones as well.. I myself became a a fan of the trailer and (like many of you) have been trying to and out what this movie is about. As a member of the entertainment industry.. I was finally able to crack someone (a friend I trust) inside into giving me at least some details...(No, it's not J.J or Reeves or someone big.. but he/she does work and has been on set of the movie... And since he/she, like anyone working on the movie, are on a strict gag order, I figure I will post this as my own "THEORY" in order to protect him/her. So this is my "THEORY" So basically the trailer created a phenomenon that J.J and the producers never thought it would. After the buzz from the media and Internet about the mysterious trailer, J.j saw this as a great marketing ploy to create even more buzz over this small little film. Yes! this movie was originally intended to just be a nice cult classic that monster movie lovers would like. This is, in fact, your basic monster movie with an American touch. It is no secret that J.J is a fan of monster movies and wanted to make America have it's own monster... There is a problem though.... THE MONSTER: The monster is not American at all.... The monster did go through its infancy and grew up under the Atlantic, but its origin, like Godzilla, came from Japan. This is where the Slusho reference comes from. Slusho does have a part in the movie, but is not as significant as people would think. It plays a small role in the beginning of the movie as to the origin of the monster. This was as much info on the monster as I can get... the reason for this is because no, including cast and crew has actually seen the monster. I don't even think J.J knows what the final monster will look like.. that is being kept very secret... The monster will be entirely in CGI where, indeed, most of the films budget will go.... There weren't even any animatronic hands or feet on set which implies that there will be no real/direct contact with the monster and cast (unless it's all CGI)..... And as for the theories of multiple monsters... NO.. sorry, it is only one gigantic monster. To conclude, it is not Godzilla, A lion, Voltron, Rampage.. or any of the other monsters people have been thinking... it will be original and it will be a Creature of some sort (not robot)... they are still working on what it will actually look like.. THE PLOT: So, again, I could only get so much info on the topic... But basically this film has seen more rewrites than... well.. whatever other movie has seen a lot of rewrites... a lot basically. Originally the entire film was all destruction from beginning to end, J.J wanted all action, all the time. It was, like I said, your basic Monster movie, no real plot, as long as people die and te monster destroys a lot of stuff... But after the buzz over the trailer, the producers felt that there needed to be more to the story than just things blowing up... so the rewrites began.. but there was only so much they can do.... They did give a little bit on Rob and Beth and they're crushes.. and a little bit on the brother and friends.. but for the most part. .there's no real character development in this movie... And so... the myspaces were created to give the characters a little more back story.. this way, true fans will know much about the characters when the film finally does release... but those who only have seen the trailer and never took anything out of it than another monster movie and won't get much back story on the characters... since the plan is to make most of the movie about the destruction... Though... the monster will not truly be revealed until about 30 minutes in to the movie... THE STYLE: Though many feel that the movie will consist of home video to give it a more "real" effect.. this is not true... The film will be shot the way we see any other movie (we'll call it Film Look) but will have parts in home video, like the trailer. In fact, what we see in the trailer is in the movie, but there are "Film Look" scenes in between that we haven't seen. As much as some people would like to see a Blair Witch style movie with this film... it simply doesn't work... everything would be too shaky and the audience will be too bored with the handheld... and if the film was shot that way.... it would suggest that, like Blair witch, the monster would be difficult to see or not seen at all.. which would not satisfy the audience.. and So I guess we get the best of both worlds with both styles integrated... Plus... who holds on to a camera the hole time..It's just not believable.... THE SITES: So the official sites are still 1-18-08.com and Slusho.jp.. no warbloid or rage of the gods....though Slusho doesn't have that big of a part in the movie, it does have the most clues as to the origins of the monster...but I don't know, my friend doesn't know... but some one knows what they're doing.. but it's too confusing and frustrating to crack the "codes" so to speak.. And then there's 1-18-08.com.... There are still only 5 pictures with two of them having messages.... There are no real clues in these pictures.. I'm sorry.. The pictures were put up there as more teasers as to what happened that night..giving you a time frame. There are no hidden messages and if they are.. we'll never find out until the movie comes out... But Good news... the producers are listening to the fans who are frustrated with the mystery and know that you can only hold out for so long... A reason for this is was the lousy roar that was inserted 6 minutes into staying on the site... the producers found out that you guys were outraged that a new picture or some form of information was giving.. it was just a roar.. so they want to make up for it... TITLES and NEW TRAILERS: So everyone has been wondering what the title will be... and you are no different from the producers... when production began.. the film still didn't have a title... Cloverfield, Slusho, Etc. were just working titles (I'm sure we all knew that) But J.J really, really wanted to get the trailer out in time for the release of Transformers since he's smart and knows that it will be seen a lot with a blockbuster like that... So what do they do... they push it with no title and what they had shot already.. hence... we all saw what some have said to be the greatest trailer ever made.. though it was all pretty much a fluke by J.J for not having a title ready... not to say that they didn't know what they were doing... I'm sure they wanted the movie to seem mysterious.. but there was not title to release at the point... And if that weren't enough.. they did decide to release the title at Comicon..but after the poster leak fiasco.... they scratched it and went back to the drawing board... It was going to be Monstrous (and they saved themselves by releasing other posters with other adjectives)... but because of the leak.. they decided to change it again... soon Overnight and Parasite were scratched and the newest "weak" title "Wreck" will soon be scratched... For some reason J.J wants to keep the title one word.. it's like his thing (Alias, Lost).. and not very elaborate titles.. just basic words... but I dunno if we'll be happy with the final title...but as for now.. they're still working on it.. Which leads to the new trailer that will soon come out that will AGAIN have no title!!!! What is up with that.. give it a title already!!.. But the new trailer will consist of actual scenes related to the aftermath of the first trailer.. This includes Rob among other friends struggling to get away from the monster (which won't be shown of course.. again)... ad find themselves at a first aid center where (as I have seen on previous posts on the new trailer).. will have "infected people".. but no.. this will not be a monster/zombie movie.. the infection is a result from a mysterious ooze that comes from the monster.. upon contact.. they get sick and may look like zombies.. but do not hunt for brains... It just makes them look like crap for some reason.. So that's my theory.. I'm sure I left some stuff out.. but I can only remember so much.... So, personally, I don't think the movie will live up to the hype.. I think we all wanted a little bit more out of this movie.. but we'll soon find out that the phenomenon was basically a fluke which went to the producers advantage.. and now we're left with the obsession of trying to find out what this movie is about and they're struggling to try and live up to the hype.. it's just a big mess.. " [...original post]

    Personally I think that theory is boring and makes for a shitty movie. JJ should take cues from my theory post #967 and if he doesnt then Ill make it a friggin movie. We know the guy can write so why would anyone believe that he is having problems developing a script.

    Ok so Im glad that I spent maybe a total of twenty mins on warbloid. I had my doubts from the start. It was too neatly packaged. It doesn't have the cryptic feel of slusho. For the record I have speculated a strong Lovecraft influence on this movie from the very start. From the very second the first explosion went off during the trailer. At that point I could care less about transformers. All I knew was that for some reason the explosion resembled cthulhu. Maybe I'm going nuts, but these have been my feelings from the start. Also the official logo on all the call sheets is a Kraft cheese logo. Where it's supposed to say Kraft it says L.A. N.Y.C. followed by the codename cheese. Exactly like the Kraft logo. If anyone is interested in the final call sheet I could send it. Just hit me up at carradinefan@yahoo.com. Im sure by now most of the links have been taken down. -The Four Horsemen-

  • HulkingUp
    There is no face, I just looked at every detail in the poster.. I don't see a face anywhere.
  • Phenox1707
    I believe the face that berto is talking about can be seen in this edited version of the poster: http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t313/thelostsoul15/CloverfieldMonster.jpg It's far-fetched, but it is there. Anyways, I'm glad that warbloid is now down. Gives us one less thing to hear about in the future. We need to focus on the details we know are facts, and work up from there. -The Four Horsemen-

    Crap! Well they got me hook,line, and sinker. This is interesting, here is the rest of the post on the warbloid site: People are homeless and starving in your own country. Thousands of people are dying in conflicts around the world each day. It's almost election year in the United States and you're pissing away countless hours on your computer searching for information about a movie production. Wake up and do something meaningful with your life! Quit living a false reality! You are accomplishing nothing and all slaves to the fashion. Whether you believed this site was real or a fake and you're spending hours doing research, then you are a loser. So don't go patting yourselves on the back or we just might put up a few more of these sites to prove our point. So long brother, Des I find it interesting that Des says that we are wasting our time doing research for this movie. I wonder how much time Des and crew spent putting the site together and monitoring it and whatnot. I mentioned back in post # 674: Wow, there sure are alot of people doing an awful lot of researching, thinking, deciphering, brainstorming etc because of this movie. Alot of creative juices are flowing. If all this collective brain power was concentrated on world issues we would have resolved world hunger and be well on our way to tackling global warming by now. Amazing. Cowpattybill on Aug 9, 2007 I'm sad that the warbloid site is a bust. I spent a lot of time there. I know I'm terrible at figuring things out but I'm good at research so that's what I do. I leave the figuring/deciphering/code breaking to the rest of you. If the long post about what Abrams is up to is correct then it makes doing all this work kind of pointless because there isn't a big campaign of clues and revelations to be found. What will I do now?.......
  • Cowpattybill
    There has been alot of discussion on all the boards as to what the title should be. I think this late in the game he should just call it what we've all been calling it 1-18-08 It's been well branded. It would make a sequel more difficult unless you just use another date.
  • Phenox1707
    I don't really have an opinion as to whether or not there should be a sequel. In my opinion, when the movie comes out, a lot of people are going to see it and then that'll be it. I mean, people like us that have put effort into this movie are obviously going to see the sequel if there is one, but I can guarantee you that there will be a select group of people that think we're complete morons, and that "1-18-08" is an over-rated movie. Thus, they won't care about it, and they'll ridicule us for "wasting" our time. I think that there should be a sequel only if the movie is as good as I hope it to be. If it's not, that might ruin it a bit. I don't want to speak for you guys, but if we build it up to be some awesome movie, and then it turns out to be less exciting and less intense than we thought, then I'll be disappointed. Of course, I'll keep looking for answers until the day the movie comes out. I'm just stating my opinion. -Horsemen-

    I had a feeling that the warboild site was fake so i have been gone looking in other directions. I have found nothing. I am at a loss i am caught up with everything here, but i can't find any real new info. I am at a stand still all i can do is have theroy at this point. I am still with H.P on this. If the monster can from japan like that huge post a little ways back implied then i know my plot of his course and selection of new york as a target is right...still don't help thought(sigh) I'm back now horsemen check back later. -The Four Horsemen-

    As the leader of the 4 horsemen I must address this Des character. Des you sound just like some islamic fundamentalist. I would rather keep my nose buried in cloverfield and play warcraft before I waste my time fixing something our gov should be fixing. Our gov is a disease that spreads across the world and guess what it's not my fucking problem to fix. I don't support the war or any other war because you know what? It's not my fucking problem. The government sends troops over to kill people and you want civilians to fix that. You my friend are the one living the fantasy. So stop making people feel bad for having freedom. Also I can honestly say that I don't spend hours researching. I work a full time fucking job and I know other people are doing the same. If it wasn't for the workforce there would be no saving the world. If the concept of money was not created then we would not be working jobs. So money is the only thing that runs this planet. If you believe otherwise then you are living in the fantasy world. I'm done with you DES. Go suck bin laden's dick. On another note I'm fucking happy as hell to see the horsemen back in here. Cowpatty if bam doesnt show then you may have his spot for the time being. -The 4 Horsemen={=====>
  • Larry
    can anyone post on here??? I find this whole story facinating....the way you are all digging up clues to what the real storyline is...hope you dont mind me "lurking" out here to watch some more....
  • Larry
    DUH???? I just figured out why no one is posting....I would assume all the detectives are asleep at this time...took me a while to figure that one out...being on the west coast I tend to forget things like that...anyway, while you rest I will take this opprtunuty to say a couple things...I dont think any of you are wasting your time...it is perfectly OK to seek answers to seemingly unimportant riddles...it is what makes life fun...so keep up the good work...you have no idea how much enjoyment I have gotten from keeping up with your posts as you search for answers to the riddle before you...I work swing shift at an AFB and there is little to do on most nights...since discovering this little (or not so little) gathering of movie fans, the nights have passed much more quickly and I look ever forward to the next days postings....if ever I come up with anything I feel worthy of your attention or helpful in anyway, I wil gladly share it...so forgive my longwinded post but it is just a way of saying thanks a lot and hello to you all....and lastly, being a long time monster/sci fi movie fan, I do hope so very much it will not be something so adolescent as a remake of any of the japanese films...we need a true horror to bring back the thrill of going to monster movies...something missing for a long time...so, my vote is for somethign very Lovecraftian....take care all...be watching from out here for future developements.......
  • Phenox1707
    I'm going to have to correct you, Larry. Not all of us are asleep. In fact, I plan on staying up for quite a bit longer. However, I have a cold at the moment, so I'm not exactally in my best "detective" condition. Then again, I'm more of an observer too. I observe what the others say, and see what I can make out of it. I, like you, have things occupying me during most of the day, so I cannot post new information very often... Anyways, you're welcome to post whenever you want. If you want to talk other than on the forums, my e-mail is allstr008@aol.com. -Four Horsemen-

    I got an inside tip that the new trailer will be attached to Beowulf. We aint talkin teaser either this is the jackpot. Something to talk about through the holidays. Larry I hope it is something Lovecraftian because I am a very distant relative of Mr.Phillips and nothing would make me happier. I myself am writing short stories they are as follows........ The Man from Outside Earth The Man from Inside Earth Tower on the Moon (ten parts) Haunted Translation The Venus Occupant One day I promise to carry on his legacy with a new mythos
  • Larry
    I am beginnign to see somewhat the depth of the talent at work here..it is a pleasure to able to corrrespond with you all...I have no writing skills beyond having some fairly strong editorial letters to the local paper...I have often wished to have the skill to make some of my ideas into short stories that would be suitable for publication...unfortunately I have yet to put something together worthy of interest...so, my very best wishes to you on your projects...where would I be able to find the short stories that you mentioned?? I would love to read them...
  • dudeman1
    ok, wierd idea. just thinking outloud, something I think would be cool. The trailers and pics etc are all takena nd captured at 1-18-08, which is when the movie comes out obviously. So.. since the pictures and trailer all take place in the wee hours of january 18th, maybe the movie is based on the after effects of what happened the early morning of 1-18-08? Like news coverage, recovered witness video (robs surprise party) ect. Just thinking outloud. That might be cool
  • Larry
    I think I read way back in the earlier posts something to that effect...that the camera is found by a clean up crew and the movie is the playback of what was on the camera...in hopes of adding something useful to this effort I offer this.....one point that hasnt quite been established is whether or not this goiong to have an occult twist or straight up sci/fi...either something extra terrestial or result of man's disregard for the environment....if the Slusho angle is legitimate, that makes it "real world" so to speak and not an occult Lovecraft type scenario...which for me is kind of a bummer...the whole thing about a soft drink ingredient being the cause of a creature of this magnatude is just silly....it falls so short of the expectations after having seen what this creature can do...make any sense??? I mean it is just too awesome to have such comic book beginings...too Godzilla-ish...I sense a much deeper story behind this...something to give you real chills when it finally becomes apparent...it will be disapointing if there is not...just my 2 cents as a long time movie fan....
  • H.P.
    Heres an old post you guys might wanna chew on Has anyone thought that maybe this is a sequel to Cthulhu(which comes out this fall). The trailer looks to be more of the cult story about Cthulhu and Cloverfield could possibly be the follow up/big unveiling of Cthulhu. I mean it does seem like this movie starts up rather quickly and we do know that the story starts around midnight. It's still totally possible that both movies could be tied to lost. I know most people will immediately shoot this theory in the head, but let me ask you this why do we see 401 show up a number of time in the Cloverfield trailer. 401 is the area code for Rhode Island. I live in Rhode Island and I am a huge H.P. Lovecraft fan. For those who don't know H.P. Lovecraft, he created the Cthulhu Mythos in RI. He also lived and died there. RI is known as the ocean state. Now think back to the slusho site and keep in mind the ocean theme. Lets not forget the name you can spell out using both The Parasite and Cloverfield code names. I got plenty more and I could go all day with comparisons, but frankly noone can tell me different. When I first saw the trailer during transformers I thought about Cthulhu instantly. So slam me all you like for I AM PROVIDENCE. obviously theres plenty of fat to cut out for it was an old post but you get my basic point.
  • Phenox1707
    Larry can't post right now. Something wrong with his internet, I think. But this is his response to you, H.P.: ********** having visited the Cthulhu movie site it is hard to see where they would be connected... the movie trrailer doesnt give much up as far as a monster of any sort...seems more like one of those "psychological thrillers"...a term they use to cheat us out a real monster...but that is the impression I get from watching the Cthulhu trailer...just doesnt seem to be in the same league with Cloverfield....I agree that Cthulhu would make for a more chilling monster...and occult creatures are going to be far harder to stop that "real world " types for the obvious reason...MAGIC...makes everybody play by an entirely different set of rules.... ********** My response is this: Well, not necessarily, Larry. You can't say for sure that an occult creature would be "far harder to stop" than a real world creature. We aren't sure what the monster of Cloverfield is yet, so we can't say for sure what its weaknesses are. For all we know, the only way to kill this monster might be something completely nuts like "First, you must stab it's toe with the round edge of a spoon... Then..." Yes, I know that's completely illogical, I'm just trying to make a point here. I do agree with you that the two trailers do not seem to be anything close to each other, and I personally regard them as to completely separate movies. Other than that, I got nothing. -Four Horsemen-
  • H.P.
    I obviously don't have the same thoughts I did in post #409. I have come to realize that cthulhu will not show up in this film in the traditional sense and that is the point I was trying to get across with the fact that an actual cthulhu movie is soon being released. There were certain things in the trailer that made me think of JJ. The random polar bear was one of them. I thought that would have been a cool trick to play when everyone is all of a sudden watching a sequel on 1-18-08 and then they would have to go back and get the cult backstory from a movie that came out under thier noses. I just found it odd how mysterious this Cthulhu movie was. It's very much under the radar and has that straight to dvd feel. I bet alot of people don't even know about the Cthulhu movie. Also larry I would have to disagree with you on Psychological thrillers. It is much more terrifying for the mind to play tricks because when you begin to show too much of the monster it becomes cheesy. I have no problems seeing this monster as little as possible during the film. It's like bigfoot lockness or even bloop. If you see too much and know too much then the magic is gone and the legend stops being fun. Well that's just my opinion and Larry I respect yours. I'm just happy to see this place jumping again. Oh yeah and about my stories. I am still writing them. They are all being written at the same time. It sucks because I'm very unorthodox because sometime I'll have little pieces of paper scribbled on here or a tape recording there and then I gotta go through all of it and organize and as you can imagine its even more frustrating when you are writing five different stories at once. My main focus is Tower on the Moon. Everything else feeds off that. I would say maybe another five years and I would have something presentable. I could send you a plot synopsis of Tower. I also write comics. I came up with the idea of killing Batman off and then having a pissed off Superman run around in the batman costume. Super-Batman. well that's it for now hope everyone enjoys the weekend.
  • Phenox1707
    Just throwing this out there, and it has nothing to do with the movie. I'm beginning to start writing for my own entertainment. Ya know, write a short story, and enter it in a contest... that sorta thing. So far I've only written one piece. It turned out okay, and I'm not sure how well I'll do in the contest that I entered it in. If any of you want to see it, I can send it to you if you give me your e-mail. Anyways... Hopefully, by the time you're done with your stories, H.P., I'll have developed my own writing skills up a bit. I'd love to read your stories whenever they're done. Could you send me a plot synopsis, because I am interested in the books. The titles are very intriguing. -Four Horsemen-
  • Larry
    just for fun....new movie idea....well known eccentric producer surprises the public with a trailer for an upcoming film...totally awesome special effects, no hint as to what is happening except that it is quite terrifying...scenes in the trailer look almost TOO real....fans on a web site begin exploring the internet for clues alluded to about the film content by the producer...after most people have given up the hunt as too exhausting, a particularly dedicated group of fans doggedly follows the elusive clues in search of the promised secrets of the film's plot and content....and just when it seems that the whole thing is just a gag, they discover that the path is leading them to one horrifying discovery after another....no gags, real events, real occult mysteries, happenings...or maybe some cross dimensional, "rip in the fabric of time" type stuff...it just flashed in my head as I was reading the posts and thinking some "what if" kind of stuff....if anybody turns out a usable screenplay, I want my 25%...LOL....boredom can make you think of some weird sh*t....its what happens when you work night shift....
  • Larry
    oh, wait wait wait...the trailer shows up in theaters and nobody knows who made it or where it came from... the clues are to lead you to more bits of the film if you can find them...the film clips turn out to be a warning sent back in time from the future in an effort to try and prevent the hiddeous/horrendous happenings shown on the trailer...that is why they look so real...they are real...this steals a bit from John Carpenter's "Prince of Darkness" which is definately a movie that deserves a fresh remake....great story line...very original....I hope my ramblings arent getting anyone angry for being off topic....this has really been a lot of fun for me...
  • Larry
    getting back on topic, has anyone thought of or discussed this....there is much that can be assumed just from the last scene with the SOL head....it isnt simply knocked over because it is in the way, as in most "giant monster" movies....think about it....the head is literally ripped off of the SOL's shoulders and either carried some distance first, or just thrown from that spot....but the big ppoint here is that IT IS THROWN, not just batted about....this is reminiscent of olden times when the barbarian hordes outside the city gate would launch the heads of captured enemy over the walls of the city ...IT IS A CHALLENGE...dumb beasts dont do things like this...thsi is an act that requires deliberation and forthought....so what does this tell us about the intelligence of this creature....just something that occured to me...I take it from the lack of responses that it is Saturday night ansd most of you are out on teh town enjoying some sort of social life....if so, have a good time...get home safe...be waiting to hear comments on my lunatic thoughts....
  • dudeman1
    Hell yes larry, i have thought about this. Why would some Monster just randomly rip off a statues head? Unless of course he is smart enought to realize the symbolic importance the statue has. I dont think a regular creature would do this. Obviously this beast must have some intelligence. This is a good lead for a possible bible revelation type monster story
  • Larry
    cool...glad someone else saw that...aside from the question of a higher intelligence, it also points to the fact that this beast/creature has some good degree of manual dexterity...hands of some sort....opposable thumb sort of deal in order to grab something and throw it...which brings me to wonder just what kind of amphibian life form could evolve to this level....so, all of this leads me to think that the monster is going to be a bit more sophisticated than your regular Godzilla type...and I like dudeman's idea about the bible revelation thing...what ever the creature is, it is not just stumbling around, breaking sh*t up in blind rage...it is THINKING about what it is doing...it is pissed off and it is here with a purpose, not here by accident...the throwing of the head was a challenge, plain and simple....waiting to hear your thoughts...
  • dudeman1
    wow, now if we would have all stayed on track here from the get go we would have some great ideas and theories going. Definately from what we know the beast is Intelligent, Probably amphibious, definately pissed off, has reason and meaning. Warbloid and all those other false sites just destracted us. Im kind of unsure as to the legitimacy of the myspace characters though, because Mike Vogel (an actor) has an official website saying he plays Jason Hawkins (Robs brother) and an official some what suspicious post on his official website says "A MySpace page for Mike's character "Jason Hawkins" has surfaced on the internet along with pictures with his co-stars. Wanna be Jason's friend?" It says "Has Surface" meaning that the people running Mikes site dont know who is running the myspace accounts. You can check it out here http://www.mike-vogel.com/ The myspace characters could be just as fake as warbloid was
  • Larry
    the whole deal on the myspace characters is something I cant follow from where I am ...AF server has myspace on the sh*t list...ACCESS DENIED.....same for some of the other "clue" sites....so I have just been trying to contribute whatever I can based on my own imagination and love of horror/sci fi/monster movies....it is a lot of fun for me as I have nothing better to do from now til nidnight...bottom line for me is that it is going to be on the line of something "foretold of" in an ancient legend, the bible or something of that nature....beyond that I am pretty much stalled out....my greatest hopes are that JJ has sincerely come up with something that is brand new and wont leave us feeling like pinheads for having spent the time and money to go see it....
  • Phenox1707
    In my opinion, it's a very good thing that you can't see some of the clues. Because of this, you're leads are more fictional than ours, and come on, this is J.J. Abrams we're talking about here. We need the input of people who deal more with fiction then the facts that we usually deal with. Larry's contributions might lead us to more clues in the future that we couldn't think about before. Anyways... I'd like someone to explain a bit about the whole "Bible Refrence". I'm an agnostic, so I haven't read the bible. I am a tad interested in it, though. I'd also like to add my two cents about the monster. We know this: -Big -Strong -Some manual dexterity In reality, thats it. I can't say for sure that it is aquatic, and we really can't start to fathom a description of it. One of the misconception's I've just noticed is that many people say that the explosion in the trailer was the surfacing of the monster from underground. This may not be true. New York City is a very large, populated area. There's bound to be telephone wires and gas pipes everywhere. And there's the explosion: The monster is meandering the streets, and cuts an electrical wire with his massive foot. The wire spirals out of control and hits a gas pipe, and it explodes. That's about all I've thought of. -Four Horsemen-
  • Larry
    thanks...I do hop eI am able to contribute to all of this...for my own part, I am not at all a religious person but I have heard of references to "end of days" stuff from the bible and other religious writings...so my mention of it was nothing more than another loose tidbit to consider...someone with a better kowledge of biblical things would be good to talk on this one...the only reason I mention amphibian is due to the Slusho connection and all the "bottom of the sea" stuff from there...and the explosion....personally, I think it is more than just some gas lines.....it has a "weaponry" look to it...like another tool the creature has at his disposal along with the obvious strength of its size alone...JMO....

    oh shit..... The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are the forces of man's destruction described in the Bible in chapter six of the Book of Revelation, the Original Greek ?????????? ??????? (Apokalupsis I?annou), "Revelation Of John". The four horsemen are traditionally named after the powers they represent: War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death. However, this is slightly at odds with the conventional interpretation of the Bible, which actually only directly names the fourth: "Death". 1. And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. 3. And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. 5. And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and saw a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of scales in his hand. 6. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. 7. And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. ” sorry, drinking again.. :)

    I've had some of my most prolific thoughts brought out by partaking of a few (?) beers....really good idea...I knew there was something like that out there...just didnt kno wwhere...I would give it good points as a possibility...and even if it is wrong, hell of an idea anyway...
  • dudeman1
    i really didint mean to post that like 4 times. Anyways, my first thought seeing the trailer was more toward apocalypse in regards to the book of revelations. I am not however that religious, but those were my first thoughts, and i cant even explain why. But again, didnt meant to post that repeatedly, firefox was being an R-Tard

    Now you guys know the reason for my naming this group the four horsemen. Essentially the beast would be the symbolic and physical herald of the four horsemen. As far as the intelligence of the monster let's look to our friend Cthulhu or as I have dubbed him JJthulhu. He comunicates with all living things through his death slumber. I would imagine that whatever they are mining at the bottom of the ocean would eventually get used up. Maybe it is something that was making the monster sleep. So in the end maybe slusho is the weapon. As far as the statue of liberty. He knows how important it is. He knows everything. Larry sounds like ya got goonies 2 on your hands. You should send it in cause I hear they are struggling with a script for that one. I would put a new set of goonies in with data owning an electronics store in astoria. Sloth has passed away and all the original goonies are brought together. It's perfect cause from what I understand the guy who played sloth actually did pass away. Phenox Ill do one better Ill send you the official first few pages. I got about twenty five. 4-Horsemen
  • Larry
    goonies 2....never thought of that...didnt know there was one being considered...oh yeah, thats right..John Matuzak the ex football player was Sloth...he did pass away some time after doing the goonies...anyway, I was thinking more in terms of people on this site, like the Horsemen, me, dudeman1, etc...pulled together by some really farout circumstances much the way SK draws his groups of adventurers together...the associations are really far out...anyway, it was just something that hit me while I was pondering over some of this stuff...dont think I could come up with anything actually worth sending in...my story was aimed at being a bit more terrifying than the goonies....you know, real "hell on earth" stuff....oh well, 2 1/2 hours to go...so keep it rolling guys....lots of time yet to think of things....
  • slash
    its godzilla cause someone says ITS ALIVE ITS HUGE so this should be something that NY people already knew and its back again. also the movie poster, shows the statue of liberty with three scratches on the back, and the sound that we hear is a litlle bit familiar with the first godzilla movie..if you remenber at the end of godzilla an egg is shown intact...so i think its a Godzilla sequence...
  • Denisse
    Ughhhhhh! Read. Prior. Posts. Before. Posting. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- As to the rest of you guys (you know who you are): Totally off topic. But I've been reading everything since the beginning on this site. Posted some shit here and there. Nothing that was ever as meaningful as all of your insights and ideas but i look forward to reading this ALMOST everyday. haha. I got a lot of my friends hooked as well. Just wanted to thank you guys. Thanks! :) Back on topic: I too believe that the film does have an apolocalyptic feel to it. Also with the trailer, I believe that Abrams wanted to kind of scare the shit out of us and show us the close reality of what could really happen (hence the personal camera footage, our country's symbol of freedom destroyed, etc.) A while ago I had this thought, that i'm sure many of you have had, that all these clues on the slusho site, etc., give you many, sometimes too many clues as to various creature (or monster story plot possibilities-Cthullu, Godzilla, Leviathan, Ziz, Behemoth, Bloop, etc.-whatever this or these monster(s) are have all or most of the characterisitics that these monsters have. That for all we know Abrams wanted this monster to knock off the head of the Statue of Liberty as a symbolism of what we destroy ourselves (through war, disease, poverty, etc.) Ok ok. Enough. sorry I began to ramble guys for all i know this monster could possibly be the government haha. Anyway, looking forward to reading more of your stuff. Later. :-)
  • H.P.
    welcome denisse. Is your name really spelled with two S cause that's really unique. I would be interested on how you pronounce that. I thank you for the kind words. There is another mb on first net but even though they have more posts we are still way ahead of them as far as thinking outside the box. This is kinda off topic but if anyone plays warcraft let me know.
  • DeniSSe
    haha...yes it's Denise with an extra S.
  • dudeman1
    just throwing this out there... I was really drunk last night :) Sorry, that was off topic too, infact, i think i am still drunk. Damn, and I wish Slusho was real
  • Phenox1707
    I've been doing stuff all day, so what I'm about to say might be horribly off. I'm a bit exhausted... anyways: Slash- Although I hate the fact that you've posted that theory without reading at least ten of the original posts, you're comment did give me an idea. He does say "It's alive, it's huge!" I listened to it again from the trailer, and it made me think... JJ said it'd be completely original, but yet, he said "It's alive"... Maybe there's reference to this monster somewhere else, or maybe it is just something that we don't conceive to be a monster on a daily basis. Think about it. Usually, when some thing is attacking you, you don't comment on whether it is alive or not. And I know that I personally wouldn't say anything but scream and run for my life. Something's fishy there... I decided to view the trailer again, and I just noticed a few things. About 23 seconds in, it shows a girl taking a sip of her drink. Behind her, it looks like there are a few letters pinned to tiles against the wall. All I can see is "LI". Probably nothing of importance, though... About 26 seconds into the trailer, when Jamie (Not too sure on that) is talking, there's a picture on the fridge (Again, not too sure what it is) that looks like a bear or something... Probably completely irrelevant, but again, I just noticed it. While everyone's at the party, the first roar happens. It shows the lights go out, and the room is pitch black. Yet, just after this scene, it shows a few people's faces and some movement before the lights go back on. Where is the light coming from? Can't be the moon, because it showed the entire room go pitch black during the first roar. That's about it. -Four Horsemen-
  • Larry
    pardon my breech of etiquet...but there was precious little posting going on at that time anyway...so a few of us took liberties to keep some form of conversation going...time enough to get back on track...from a personal standpoint I believe it is a dead end...Denisse's comment has been mentioned previously and I dont think it has been followed as far as it can go...could be the best and/or only road left...good luck detectives...i will watch from here and see what turns up....a nice cold beer will kill the pain, dudeman....take care...
  • Larry
    sorry about that ...I meant to reference the new line of thought brought up by Phenox, not Denisse...I agree with the idea that it may turn out to be something that would not have been thought to be alive but now is...I dont know NYC so I dont know what things could fall into this catagory....any other famous statues out there that would make for a good monster if it were to became somehow animated??????
  • dudeman1
    hmm Phoenox you do have an interesting point on the whole "its alive" thing. I am currently watching it in super slow mode. That is a bit strange how it gets pitch black, then suddenly there is a little bit of light before the power comes back on. Somewhat eerie, I hadn't really paid to much attention to that before. Also, clearly something happened outside because everyone is crowding the windows. Kind of strange, at :44 seconds in, the girl says "It sounded like an animal" if you happen to watch that part slow, or pause it on her, it does not look as though she is actually inside the apartment. THen again she could be standing near a giant window or something. SOrry, got off track there. Way off track, ive been watching the trailer and been on google earth for about on hour trying to decide where the explosion takes place. I came to the conclusion its right near the New York Stock Exchange. Dont know for sure, but it seems to be pretty damn close. Also, the SOL Head seems to come almost straight down Broadway, which leads straight to Battary Park by the ocean. Battary park has a great view of the SOL, however, I do not believe the creature threw it from Liberty Island, because Broadway is not in direct line of sight. Seeing how the head sort of comes in from the left side of the screen also makes me believe the creature did not throw it from liberty island, because Liberty Island from the camera's point of view would be to right and again no direct line of sight from Liberty Island down broadway street. Ok. im done lol sorry
  • Larry
    to add to your post, dudeman, I say the fact that the SOL head is CARRIED some distance before it is thrown is significant in itself as far as getting a feel for the creatures "personality"....it presents us wth a thinking monster...a monster issuing a challenge in the style of the barrbarian hordes of long ago...pretty heavy attitude for a monster...what ya think???
  • dudeman1
    just pokin around the slusho.jp site. I was reading the history, something caught my eye. Probably nothing, but maybe? "He re-joined his cousin, and combining the incredible drink making knowledge of NOriko's business with the New ingrediant Slusho! Came to Life" Now saying Slusho came to life in context means they made the drink. But maybe Slusho actually came to life. maybe slusho is the monster? I know we have said stuff like the ingrediant in slusho has something to do with the monster. But maybe Slusho is a monster, and thats where the drink ingrediant comes from, but Slusho has to stay cold/ frozen. Dont really know where im going with that anymroe im getting off track. But what if the Monster is actually named Slusho?
  • Matthew
    after slowly wearing down my left-click button through hitting pause: The girl is standing with a window to the left, and a wall to the right. We all know that when you turn the lights off it takes your eyes a little while to adjust, so the blackening of the screen may be to simulate what it would be like at the party and suddenly have the power go off. Also it leaves us alone with nothing but this noise, allowing us to focus on it more. Then of course the director wants us to see the confusion and (perhaps) fear on peoples faces after having heard this unearthly noise, which he can't do with a black screen. Maybe this is baby godzilla's return to the big screen since his debut appearance in 1998? maybe not. it does indeed look slightly too apocalyptic to be godzilla.
  • Larry
    Hmmmm....OK, try this one on for minute...I have only had limited tim eto explore teh Slusho site and saw the standard stufff...so I dont know if this has already been discussed or not...is there a logo that represents Slusho, like some kind of cartoon creature that was drawn up for the sales campaings for Slusho??? I'm thinkign that what ever it is that "ITS ALIVE, ITS HUGE" is something that is familiar to the general public and simplpy not supposed to be alive??? I am not making much sense am I???...I mean like the STA_PUFT marshmallow man in Ghostbusters coming alive...or a giant Michelin Man...or even The Jolly Green Giant...some icon known to the public that simpply should not be running around loose...do you see anything to go with on that ???
  • Phenox1707
    Another thing from the Slusho website. "Slusho is people." Chocolate milk is chocolate syrup and milk put together. Without them, it'd be nothing. Slusho is people. Without them, it'd be nothing. This **could** mean that if slusho is a monster, it is made up of people, or is fueled off of people... no? Just a thought off of dudeman1. Thanks. -Four Horsemen-
  • Larry
    that was probably the dumbest post I have made so far...forget about it...I think anything that takes us down the "cartoon track " of anything at all in the Godzilla/King Kong/Voltron etc....is just way wrong...I think this is going to be something that will give you real chills when you find out what it is...none of these "cutsey pie" little creatures that they are so fond of in Japan and Europe... I think they have come up with something genuinely SCARY.... absolutely apocolyptic...I am all out of anything remotely intelligent to offer so I will sit back and watch for while.....
  • dudeman1
    Matthew, its not a godzilla film, or a baby godzilla film. I agree with the whole its alive thing. Because the dude sounds surprised whatever it is is Alive. And perhaps slusho is a symbiote of some sort? Makes you happy. Also, ive been taking the Slusho! Zoom! to litterally and been zooming in on everything lol, havnt got anywhere with that just so you know
  • geezer
    i dunno phenox im gonna have to argue a bit with your "its alive" post i've seen people say "it's alive" in the old black & white "giant animal attacks city" flicks. which kinda makes me think that the monster is an oversized animal of some sort that usually isn't so freakishly huge. and if the new yorkers see something that big out of nowhere, im pretty sure they're gonna think its fake, or that they are hillucinating, which would explain why the guy states that it is alive
  • Larry
    OK....Slusho is a front or a mask for a "black ops" laboratory...U.S more than likely with participation/cooperation from the Japanese....some radical DNA/cloning experiments go catastrophicaly wrong...we wind up with an enormous creature derived from human/animal/??? experimentation....the human element is what makes it so dangerous because of the inherent intelligence and emotional factors...end result is we have a really evil minded creature that more than likely has a real grudge against the human race and is coming to kick major league ass on NYC....what ya think??? or should I shut up and go back to work????
  • H.P.
    Good point Larry. I think this might be where the lost tie in comes into play. What if the Hanzo Foundation plays a role in all this. What if the island was a hideout for slusho operations. Also dudeman you missed something on the zooming. Go to the store section. All the characters are on a runway. Zoom in on the monkey wearing the slusho shirt. What's that behind the cup? Looks like a tail to me. I have to agree with geezer on the whole "It's alive, It's huge" stuff. JJ has said himself that this movie will be a return to the good old fashioned monster movie. I do remember hearing It's alive in many corny monster movies or something to that effect.
  • Cowpattybill
    Wow, alot happened over the weekend. I took me 35 minutes to read it all. My strength is in research, not putting clues together to form a theory. I'm at a loss here. Since warbloid became a bust I have no where else to go so I think I might, like Larry, sit back for awhile and jump in from time to time.
  • Phenox1707
    Actually, Cowpattybill... Like you said, your strength is in research. If you have the time, can you review the trailer and maybe look through Slusho again, just to see if we missed any details? Anything at all that catches your interest would be appreciated... -Four Horsemen-
  • DeniSSe
    Larry, you're definately on to something...doesn't the ingredient for slusho cure cancer and shit like that? I'm pretty sure just like how we test on animals for certain medications for cures and such, I wouldn't put it passed this secret ops group to experiment with a human in order to cure some disease. hmmm.
  • France113
    That it passes boys, didn't they notice??? that this movie of under budget, is bad re… does JAJAJA…y leave in the trailler… do I give him an example… did they see the head of the Statue of the Libertadad, doesn't he/she have the proposion and the size of the Original one (that is 10 times but Big) and if they notice well… is there But… Obviously they do have to discover it you.

  • DeniSSe
    huh? Better English, ami!
  • Cowpattybill
    Yes, I can review the trailer. I don't have sound though. This is sometimes better because I am able to concentrate more on the visual stuff and not be distracted by audio. I have heard the trailer with sound before but not the slusho site. I see there is an audio on/off switch on the site but I can't hear either way so I don't mess with it.
  • H.P.
    Yeah.....um...right on france113 whatever you just said. I think what frenchie is trying to say is that the head from the statue of liberty is from a replica and it is not size appropriate. That has already been discussed. Post 952 touches on this concept. Maybe Rob is gonna be a slusho tester. If his brother Jason already works there then maybe he is the one who got Rob the job. Maybe Jason is a scientist who already knows that slusho is seemingly safe and tips big brother off by giving him samples and getting him and his friends hooked. Also if you look close in the trailer (looks like the singer from yellowcard) he is serving drinks. Maybe this cameo is significant. Maybe he is serving some slusho Jason sent from Japan. I think the factory powder form is mixed with alcohol and creates a new drug. -The 4 Horsemen-
  • Cowpattybill
    Okay, I looked at the trailer again, frame by frame and I have only a couple things to note. 1. When the lights go out they must be out for some time because although it appears to be only a couple seconds, when the lights do come back on the cameraman is in a completely different part of the apartment. Maybe he just turned but I don't think so. 2. On the rooftop (and this has been mentioned before) there is a building in the background that is lit up with green lights. I don't know which building it is but I remember someone saying that it is only like up like that at Christmas time and St. Patricks day. Since it is all green it was suggested that this occurred around St. Patricks. 3. When they are running down the stairs after the debris starts falling a bald black person is running through the doorway from what appears to outside (judging by the flash of light and smoke) but I don't think it's the same doorway Rob and crew ran through because the light and smoke should be on the other side of the doorway. 4. The order of people running down the stairs keeps changing. The bald black guy was between Rob and the slusho shirt guy, then he's gone, then the cameraman is ahead of Rob. 5. There are an awful lot of people out on the street at that time of night. I saw only one person in a bathrobe, everyone else is dressed and there are just alot of them. 6. It's been mentioned before but I'll mention it again. It's January (supposedly) but it sure is warm out. People are in shorts, no jackets, no snow on the ground. Just seems weird. Anyway, that's all I got. Do with it what you will.
