J.J. Abrams Top Secret Trailer for Cloverfield in Front of Transformers!!

I don't want to ruin this experience for anyone, but holy shit! I just went to a screening of Transformers (to see it for my second time) tonight, and I caught a trailer for a top secret untitled J.J. Abrams movie. This was seriously the craziest and coolest trailer I have EVER seen! If you want to hear more about it and hear the description of it, read on. Otherwise (which I suggest this is what you do), skip reading this until after you see Transformers, which this trailer will play in front of, and then come back to read more on the movie.

Here's the description of the trailer. I suggest you DON'T read on unless you've gone to see Transformers and have seen this trailer - otherwise the experience will be ruined!!

It starts off at a party in a loft in New York City for this guy around his mid-20's who's leaving (the city). It's filmed on home video cameras and looks just sort of like another independent drama comedy about this guy. This goes one for a little while when all of a sudden there's a big earthquake and people start to go a bit crazy and they all run up to the roof to see the lower half of Manhattan, and one of these buildings, erupt into a huge ball of fire after this unidentified object from the sky comes flying down and hits it. Then people really start to go crazy and the camera is dropped and blacks out. Then it comes back up and they're out running on the streets and all of a sudden this huge flaming object comes flying through the air and lands on the street and it's the ripped off head of the Statue of Liberty. You can hear this odd freaky roar in the background as more huge flaming/smoking things fly through the air and it ends with people running and screaming.

There is no title for the movie. It only shows "Produced by J.J. Abrams" and says "1.18.08" and flashes the credit block of names for about a half second and that's it. Everyone in the audience basically just went "what the f**ck!" after it ended! It's insane…

Apparently this is a top secret project called Cloverfield that J.J. Abrams is producing and not directing. What is it, you ask? After doing some research over at Ain't It Cool News, I discovered this description.

Well, word from inside the company is that CLOVERFIELD is a giant monster movie, featuring something that's being referred to internally as "The Parasite".

There's also a bit more about the style and what it may actually be about or how it'll work (which considering from the trailer, might be insanely cool).

And what makes this different than any other giant monster movie? Well, as I understand it, most of the film is going to be shot using home video cameras, as if from the point of view of real people who are experiencing an attack on New York. It’s designed as a fairly small picture, all things considered, and right now, they’re working to make sure the script is going to deliver some wild thrills (like an earthquake that levels Manhattan or an oil tanker flipping over by the Statue of Liberty), but that it’s not suddenly going to turn into a giant $150 million movie.

Holy shit, this sounds awesome! This thing has been pretty top secret so far, without a peep or word or even a listing on IMDb. We haven't seen anything like this in a while, as almost everything nowadays has some news on it all the way from the start of production.

This is not just your ordinary Hollywood disaster or giant monster flick, it's something way different. From the trailer you can tell this is going to be something unique, maybe even on the same scale as the Blair Witch Project. And for now this has to be one of the coolest trailers and best marketing tactics I've seen in a long while. What did everyone else think so far who has also seen it?

UPDATE - JULY 6th: We've posted a number of official new updates in a post titled J.J. Abrams’ Cloverfield Updates: Casting, Shooting, and More Discovered. New details can be found there including some casting details, shooting details, and more!

UPDATE - JULY 9th: The official trailer has been posted in full-on high definition glory and can be watch RIGHT HERE!

  • I saw the trailer last night in front of Transformers at a preview screening!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!! I forgot what movie I was there to watch!!! All I wanted was to keep watching that trailer. Absolutely amazing!
  • I was absolutely floored by this trailer. I'm right there with ladiesman, I immediately wanted to see it again. Absolutely amazing.
  • 12gaugeWatty
    It was absolutly one of the most insane things I have ever seen. It took me a few days to even find out what the movie is. I havent been able to get it out of my head. By the uproar in the crowd when they didnt give a name, Im sure I havent been the only one looking.

    I saw this trailer last night too........it was pretty friggin amazing and one of the most original things i've ever seen.........this movie, whatever it is, is probably going to be pretty amazing
  • ED
    Great!!! Now I have a reason to see Transformers.
  • Heckle
    Damn it where was this previwe screening!!! I missed it!
  • Yeah i saw a sneak preview for Transformers (the website attached above has my rather disappointed review), but the preview for Cloverfield was definitely the best thing. It was original and a brilliant marketing tactic, as that preview was all i remembered when I left the screening of Transformers. LONG LIVE JJ ABRAMS!

    Wow, what a tease. This needs to be posted online asap.
  • TJ
    This guy says he's going to have the preview up soon: http://www.cloverfieldmovietrailer.com
  • I'd say that it really is worth it to see in the theater. It actually made me forget that I was going to see Transformers. That's how good it is. I don't think it would have the same effect as watching it on your monitor.
  • I've been bemoaning the lack of good trailers in the last few years (giving us WAY too much of the story/action/humor/twists/etc) but this mysterious trailer does exactly what a good trailer should. It makes me psyched to see it. I just hope this is the beginning of a sneak-attack campaign and not just the juicy teaser before all the god-awful "regular" trailers.
  • Master of Disaster
    It was frickin' amazing, it's all I can think about. Me and my buddy went "WTF!!!" at the same time, it looks great. I knew it was called Cloverfield, but I didn't know of this parasite thing, thanks!!!
  • TheRoboticElephant
    Ok, first of all... I'm gonna go on a limb and call BS on the whole idea that Abrams is producing a movie. Think about it. J.J. Abrams delayed the launch of season 3 of LOST till the beginning of next year, right around the same time as the date on this teaser If you want my opinion, this whole idea that it's an actual movie is just what the media refers to as "Spin". It's intended to misguide the viewer. this is a preview for LOST. Didn't you hear the "monster" noises, that sound just like the "monster" from the island on LOST? Abrams likes putting little teasers for his show in movie theaters and this isn't the first time. In Mission Impossible 3, Abrams put "The Hanso Foundation" in the end credits. (The Hanso Foundation was a fictional part of the LOST Experience) So either I'm wrong and this is a real movie that has nothing to do with LOST, or I'm right and it's either a preview for LOST itself or else for the next phase of "The Lost Experience" (look it up if you don't know what it is). Sincerely, and sorry for the length, The Robotic Elephant
  • Will
    Man this looks like a real godzilla movie like the original...
  • Oompaloompya
    Actually TheRoboticElephant, I picked up on the sound of the "monster" while I was in the theater and had the exact same thought you did. Although, the reason he pushed the show back might have been so he could finish this movie first which has already been said to have a smaller budget. There's also the fact that the mood of the trailer is so far off from what LOST has given us so far that I'd have a hard time not saying that the show has "jumped the shark" so to speak. Having said that however, if that's the direction LOST is heading in then holy cr*p are we in for a ride next season! Either way we end up with an insane season of LOST or a really interesting movie come January so it's a win-win situation in my eyes.
  • josh
    I thought the delay for S4 of Lost was purely due to the logistics of making the show. It takes them like ~21 days to make each episode so they pretty much have to take extended breaks to catch up.
  • I seriously doubt that this is for Lost. Abrams has absolutely nothing to do with Transformers. There is a distinct difference between putting a referrence into a movie you're making and getting the studio to put in a trailer before a movie not only during regular screenings, but at the preview screenings. With that said, if this is for Lost, I'll be downright pissed too. I don't watch Lost. I didn't get in on the beginning of it and I'm sure I'll rent the DVD's and get caught up at some point, but it is VERY far down on my list of things to see. This looks to be a fascinating way to market/shoot a movie, and if it just ends up being a pimping for a tv show, I will be very disappointed.
  • Ryan
    Everyone in my theater said WTF?!??!?! There definitley needed to be a title of the movie.
  • Pitbull0669
    I will be SO Pissed if it is foe LOST!!!! I want this to be a real movie SOOOO BAD i cant stand it..I saw it and was like OMG Godzilla is getting a reboot!!!SWEET!!!!The whole crowd in the theater said at the same time What The Fuck!!!! OMG No!!!!! so we will see...we will see.Pitbull
  • solomontorres
    Just saw the movie last night and fantastic, but that trailer was buggin me the whole way, i was trying to figure out what it was, funny enough i thought it sounded like the monsters from war of the worlds so i thought by some twisted way they came back FOR MORE!
  • optimus prime
    i dont see how this could be for lost? lost is on an island, this was in new york?
  • david
    dude when i say tht movie trailer yesterday i thought omg mother f*cker and i told my wife next to me wich by the way fell asleep so i got pissed and toled her she just missed one cool movie!!!!!!!!!! then she said this as long as we get to go see i am legend thts alright
  • chris
    My wife and I caught the Transformers sneak preview last night, and the "mystery promo" got our attention almost as much as the movie did. The movie was great, but as we walked out we both agreed that we believe someone may finally be doing a Godzilla movie the right way. The roar sounded an awful lot like the big green guy.
  • Pitbull0669
    Ok Now Im thinkin....Could all of that Just be a dream for someone from lost on the Island that is from NY? then they wake up and BLAM! right into the LOST MOVIE???man that would Fukin suck!
  • I'm usually a huge fan of these projects and I was totally into the teaser until I saw the Liberty head smash down and I couldn't resist laughing cause of lackluster job on that CG element. With luc kthat won't be what the finished product entails, that said, I'm quite anxious for an internet release of the teaser and for more details to come out. I'm sure I'll be there for the release.
  • NAkedGuy
    its not for Lost. i can bet u on that one. the reason lost go pushed back was because they wanted to have the whole season without breaks. like 24 has to start in late january/early febuary. if it was lost abrams wouldnt be just producing.but i wanted to leave the theatre right then to go find out what that preview was about instead of staying to watch the movie. great promotion. i guess i wasnt the only one/
  • Outlaw-Star
    Dude i hope this is a real movie i was up till 3a.m. last night trying find out what this trailer was all about, after seeing it before transformers, i honestly thought to myself , "a remake for the Godzilla remake, yes!!!!" after all they did kinda clue it in with the guy going to japan, but to hear its something possibly original , thats also a breathe of fresh air! its about time we have something original hit theaters, but if its for lost im gonna be pissed! cuz i hate that show! seriously i thought it was about dinosaurs when it first premiered.
  • TheRoboticElephant
    To answer Opt. Prime's question, LOST has been on an island right up until the last season finale. The last season finale was the first episode EVER to be based OFF the island with flashbacks to what happened ON the island. Many theorize this means that the next season will involve the people that were rescued trying to get back to the island. Meanwhile they will give us flashbacks of what has happened since the rescue. Dear Pitbull, DAVE, josh, and nakedguy, Thanks for pointing out the holes guys, don't get me wrong, it's only a hypothesis. But in my case, it's really a win win situation, because I love LOST, but I also love the idea of this monster movie. IF I turn out to be right though... don't EVER forget my name. TheRoboticElephant PS- Does anyone know whether the "Bad Robot" production company has ever made anything other than tv shows? ( e.g. Alias, LOST) Because their logo came on just before the teaser.
  • meganfoxhubby
    alrite....like everyone on here i saw it too of course i was kinda tired cuz i went to a 12 midnight showing of transformers here in l.a. dont get me wrong transformers was the shit, but i woke up finally after i saw this trailer. let me just say it was crazy. yes here too almost everyone in the audience was like wtf? so it got my attention for sure as well as a lot of other people but this cant be a teaser thing for "lost" though. it was something about it that makes u know that its gonna be an insane "theatrical movie". i think that was one of the best trailers i have seen in a long time (good way to keep you interested). it automatically just gets your attention because of how its behind a videocamera. its unique the way all the action was like live footage from a video camera.....at first i thought it was a nuclear bomb going off in lower manhatten cuz of that big explosion but then i heard the loud "roar" and the statue of liberty's head chopped off and thrown on the street, and then you know that it clearly wasnt. so i jus wanna know as bad as everyone, WHAT THE HELL IS THIS MOVIE?
  • meganfoxhubby
    o yeah and if it was a teaser trailer for lost dont u think we probably would have read something like "COMING JANUARY 2008 ON ABC" or something along those lines?
  • meganfoxhubby
    maybe not as precise but u know what i mean
  • Aqueento
    awesome
  • MikeT
    Anyone notice that the first person to comment is named Ladiesman217, which is the moniker for Sam's Ebay account in Transformers? Odd coincidence there... And yeah, I was totally blown away by this... it was like being back when the first Matrix film was just coming out... all you saw then was Neo dodging a few bullets and the the line "what is the Matrix?"... talk about hype!
  • Whoknew
    What if this is the gears of war movie lol, just a thought
  • joseph
    Ahh damn, I had to screen this movie yesterday morning. I had some co-workers who were going to come watch it with me but they were about 10 minutes late. The screening was playing in the biggest theater we have, and when I saw the first explosion I was just like "HOLY FUCKING SHIT". Scared the living shit out of me, no joke. The movie looks amazing though -- ahh, I want to watch the trailer again! And I have to watch out for that "monster" roar from Lost. Maybe I'll catch the beginning of the trailer before my shift starts, lol.
  • Basket
    Someone needs to go back and see Transformers and just record the trailer. I NEED to see it again!
  • MrJoe83
    Wow, I thought I was the only one! I too was blown away by this trailer and up late last night trying to find info. The theater I was in had mixed reactions, I heard someone say, "that was stupid" to which someone replied, "actually, that was pretty f'n awesome!". People in South Jersey are lame though. It's definitely not for LOST. For its final 3 seasons, LOST is starting in February with 16 consecutive episodes. Also, LOST is on Wednesdays, January 18th is a Friday. Although, as a HUGE fan of LOST, it is quite interesting that Abrams is releasing this movie in January 2008...or 1/08... There's one thing I heard, or thought I heard, in the trailer that I haven't seen anybody else talk about. When they're on the roof, I heard someone shout something like, "I CAN SEE IT! IT'S A LION!". My roommate heard it too. Sounds really weird but there's nothing that's gonna keep me from seeing this movie on January 18th, 2008. And it did totally sound like the "monster" roar from LOST.
  • coolmanpjh63
    LOST has an ending lol no i know thats not it but it would be cool either way i cant wait to see this movie but TRANSFORMERS is still #1
  • kbsc121
    You know it's going to piss me off if this is a LOST gimmick but I watched lost and noticed a similarity with the trailer. There is an ep where these guys are in a bunker or whatever and they didn't push some button (whatever) that could "destroy the world". Well of course one day they didn't push the button there was this earthquake and right after that there was an EMP or something that went off, then they blew up the bunker to keep the world from ending. I could be a little off with the description but I hate this show now so feel free to correct me. If this is just a coincidence then Abrams should take a vacation and start searching for new ideas, if not, I want this man blacklisted/shot. Enough with the LOST BS either way.
  • Seven
    So I saw the same thing this trailer alone is a fantastic. It is so funny because like many others posted before me when it ended I was like wtf. Once again Abrams has done it.

    Yeah, that trailer was awesome. Check out this website...probably related. :) http://www.1-18-08.com/
  • Nate
    The trailer was posted by some kids who were apparently bootlegging Transformers. It's on YouTube. All the information you can find (even from sources like Wikipedia) says it's a movie and based on the premise of an alien invasion by means of a creature referred to as "the parasite". It's supposed to be shot by handheld camcorders. I just don't see why this information would be leaking if it's LOST. The only thing I know for sure, though, is Abrams was waiting for the release of this movie, and he is in his fuckin' secret lab or something rubbing his hands together and laughing maniacally at us all. He's such a genius asshole.
  • Nate
    Holy shit. Youtube deleted it between the time I watched it and posted the above comment. Mr. Abrams isn't playing around. Us movie nerds are in for a real battle here.
  • Lion for sure!!!!
    We just got back from Transformers and besides enjoying Megan Fox for 2.6 hours, this JJ Abrams trailer is def intriguing. I have to agree with one of the posts above... While there is chaos in the streets a person in the mess says out loud, "they said it looks like a giant lion!" then it cuts to an amazing explosion which looks to be occurring in downtown Manhattan and then the scene with rolling Liberty head. So weird...
  • Magus
  • Jon
    There are alot of potential Godzilla references in it. The main character is said to be leaving for Japan, and someone suggests he should have left sooner, meaning he would have missed Godzilla's rampage in New York City. Also, many of the shots of people running in the street are near-identical to ones from Godzilla moives. I'm not saying that this is a Godzilla movie. I doubt it is, and I hope it isn't. I'm just saying the similarities are striking.
  • Daishi
    I saw the preview for it also at the transformers movie, looked pretty sweet. It had an ominous appearance even before all the action happened. But at the end when just the date came up, there was the collective moan and groan from the theatre audience and a few angry shouts. But all in all this movie gives the appearance of an awesome new thriller. P.S. There should be more movies with new york in them.
  • Not "Lion"
    I think they say, "It's alive!" Not "It's a lion!" Saw Transformers x2. The shit.
  • JRisdahshit
    yeah yeah i saw this trailer and its a great ideah for a movie thank you for putting this up cuz i was like pissed that they didint show the title woot i cant wait man!! a whole frikin year though!!
  • batzilla
    This has NOTHING TO DO WITH LOST! It clearly says " In Theaters" at the end of the trailer. MAN this looks sweeeeeeet!
  • Chaosdoc
    Well I'm as sceptical as I am thrilled. I thought I was watching a Godzilla trailer, and that's alright by me, always been a fan. But I thought I heard someone in the trailer say" It looks like a big lion!" HUH? If it's a giant monster movie , great. If it's written anything like "LOST" i.e. nothing but teaser crap with little to no development, remember the jusassic park 3 like begining to ""LOST" with no later reference, it will be too bad. One can only hope for good entertainment.
  • Bulazakka
    The trailer was quite well done. I really hope it's not grainy like that the entire movie cause that really bugs me when they deliberately make the quality of the film bad for some perceived artistic effect with it's just annoying as a viewer. That's the reason I didn't like Blair Witch. Nice idea, not nice to watch.
  • Drew22
    Man Alive it had me going, "what Optimus Prime?" I couldn't get that trailor out of my head. As A marketing student I can say Job well done. This is clearly going to be huge. J.J. Abrams is the next great thing in television and film.
  • mike
    The movie is with Godzilla but with the camera concept of the Blair Witch.
  • texlop
    Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I couldn't believe my eyes. This will be a monster movie the way it should've been done. I don't watch Lost and I'm hoping it isn't part of it at all. If we heard right what if this will be an apocalyptic type movie since the bible speaks of beasts and lions and stuff like that. Obviously this won't be at all biblical but what if it borrows from those ideas. The monster had to rise from the sea and tread in water for it to throw the head of the Statue of Liberty. Maybe this is about the end of the world as we know it type of film. Just a thought. I just can't wait.
  • Javok94
    That was a cool @$$ trailor. at 1st i thought it was transformers cuz a decepticon could hav thrown the statue of liberty head but it wasnt and i wanted to know more. wen i got home i got online. some say that cloverfield isnt the real name its just a coverup since its so crazy. BEST TRAILOR EVER!!!!!!!!
  • Amazing trailer... got to see it yesterday. For sure one of the best and most intense trailers ive seen in a while.

    I just got back from watching Transformers, which is the best f*@$$ movie I have ever seen and will ever see!!! I must say, they showed some pretty frickin awesome teasers. As soon as I got home, I immediately tried to find out about that one preview because it was effin insane!! It left you with goosebumps (like Transformers did through out the whole movie) and left you wondering "wtf?!". I even thought it was a remake for Godzilla and thats the first thing I looked up. But "I Am Legend" looks pretty good too, but after reading it's about vampires, I'm not sure. I'll still watch it though.
  • Man, I love all this hype this one lone trailer has brought up. I sure as heck hope it isn't Lionel they're talking about. Or Voltron. lol A LION! AAAHHH! I think he said 'It's alive'. I HOPE IT'S LOST RELATED! Plus, if you haven't seen LOST or don't know what it's about, you don't know what you're missing. Better catch up before 1/08. Seriosuly... J.J. Abrams. 1/08. The ultimate LOST reference. (HARDCORE LOST FAN HERE)
  • tyb
    i really dont understand the excitement over this trailer.. i appreciate jj abrams abilities but come on... all i could think the whole time was what the hell is this it looks like a crappy mix of blair witch and godzilla, and not naming it is just cheap...im sure itll be the start of a long drawn out viral campaign to get people to see a movie that probably couldnt carry box office success on its own merit and needs these cheap parlour tricks to draw in an audience. same kind of dirty marketing that went down when anybody who wanted to get a first look at the silver surfer in action had to pay to see some crappy kids movie from fox because they wouldnt show it online or with any other movie because that crappy kid movie needed a boost in sales. its weak. i have no ill will for this movie but at the same time i dont believe its going to be good at all and i think everyone excited for this movie is falling for the tricks and hype and i personally feel theyre gonna have to come out with a better trailer than that before i even give it a second look.

  • psucaps
    the end of the trailer doesn't simply say "1-18-08". it says "in theatres 1-18-08". should be safe to assume that this is not premiering on TV, and therefore is not a plug for lost.
  • B.B. Abrams [hi]
    Could this possibly be another godzilla movie?
  • SkylineRivas
    Anyway, What really happens is that they are in the street and the girls asks, "Is it coming this way?" And a guy responds by saying, "I saw it It's alive, Its HUGE!" not A LION..for those speculators Case Closed
  • B.B Abrams [hi]
    And what is your speculation about what they saw? Damn I hope it ain't a lion, it'll be stupid if it is, and all the hype for it will be demolished.
  • Pitbull0669
    I Bet a Camcorder remake of Beast from 20,000 fathoms!

    I'm not sure if it is, but this seems to be related to http://www.ethanhaaswasright.com I'm stuck on level 4 right now. Maybe I'll get past it.
  • Ok well first of all there is not a parasite attacking the city. It is simple a well put story on what would happen in reality, if a huge meteor shower hit earth in the middle of the night. I went and saw transformers again this mourning just so i could film that preview on my phone. I have tried to research everything i could for this movie, and came up with nothin. please lemme know what you know!
  • Necrolepsy
    I don't get that 1-18-08 website, all it is is a picture.... wth?
  • http://www.1-18-08.com/ Necrolepsy, the whole movie is filmed with home video cameras, like a Blair Witch Project kind of feel, so hence that website is like a still frame from someone's video camera. They looked pretty damn scared and are looking up like at the monster in front of them. That's what that site is for...
  • Mike
    It reminded me ALOT of War of the Worlds remake with Tom Cruise.
  • YO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's Godzilla. That is what this trailer is for. They messed up bad on the 1st one, so this time they figured they'd do it right. They went and got JJ and put his ass to task. I bet $1 billion that it's GODZILLA 2008.
  • It's NOT Godzilla!!!! Why does the fact that it's a giant monster in NYC mean it HAS to be Godzilla?!? It's Hollywood, their are similar concepts, and this is a similar "giant monster attacks NYC" but it's NOT Godzilla! C'mon!!!
  • Dustin
    I would just like to point out that if you take a look at the image properties of the picture on the 1-18-08 website, the image size is "108 KB"... just a cool little clue that they threw in there that it could be a lost movie or just be tied in with the release date 1/08.
  • Tonya Perry
    OK OK I thought really long and hard about what it could be....its OBVIOUSLY RAINBOW BRIGHT....HOW COULD YOU MISS THAT!!!! JK I DONT THINK ITS GODZILLA...I CAN ASK A FRIEND THATS IN THE MOVIE THOUGH....BUT HE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO TELL..... WHATEVER IT IS....IT DOES LOOK GOOD...AND HAS US ALL THINKING AND WONDERING.

    JJ Abraham's office in Los Angles, at one time ( not sure if it still is) was on Cloverfield ST. It is near the Olympic/Pico Area of Santa Monica/LA
  • SAGA
    Maybe the movie is called 1-18-08? Seeing as it is an attack on NY, naming the movie the date the attack takes place would be quite fitting.

    The Clues? Robot Lion New York Shown in front of Transformers Isnt there a Transformer toy that looks something like a Lion? What is this a Sequel? Transformers 2?
  • work-ed
    def says "ALIVE" not "LION" just listen to the trailer with head phones on and no picture. Listen and you'll here him say "I saw it! It's ALIVE! It's huge!". I also heard this movie is loosely based on this film: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084472/plotsummary Either way this trailer looks interesting, but if it's a monster based film (what else could it be?) it might disappoint big time!
  • work-ed
    and when you add 616px (width) x 415px (height) you get 1031... as in 10/31 Halloween! Perhaps another trailer will launch then.......
  • T.v.
    It seems people are captivated by whatever-easy propaganda. This looks like a blairwitch, amateur style movie shot with camcorders with a plot about a monster attacking a major city. Nothing new to be honest.
  • Well not sure of this helps, but I found a name to a face. No well known actors in this film however I knew one of the ladies looked familiar (the dark haired lady who speaks into the camera at the very beginning of the trailer) Odette Yustman (South Beach/October Road) http://www.odetteyustman.net/ However no movie is linked to her name, this is so top secret.
  • jen
    Also I found out: Odette Yustman was a Socialite #3 in Transformers
  • work-ed
    Either way she's a major banger! And that's not top secret!
  • Dumbass
    I dont think its godzilla.I think its something way sinister, scarier and uglier than godzilla,like a giant dark green slimy mutated human monster who breathes fire.Now that would be scary.I would imagine a giant monster with human head,roting flesh,long dark hair covering the face.He was developed by scientist for military purposes but he escaped and attack New York.
  • Anteros
    Yes, I had the same reaction as everyone else who has seen this trailer. WTF? So I went looking for info and finally found the pirated trailer on YouTube. I knew, however, that as soon as Paramount found out about it that it would be removed, so I downloaded it as quickly as possible. My son and I have now watched it at least a dozen times and it leaves us chilly every time we watch it. This is awesome. Yes, the line from the person on the street is "I saw it! It's alive! It's huge!" At the end of the trailer it clearly says, "Coming to theaters 01-18-08." So no... no giant lions. And no... no TV show. The numbers are just in-joke type referrals to fans familiar with "Lost" but not a hint that it really is just a teaser for "Lost." Yes, there is a reference to the character going to Japan, so you think about Godzilla almost immediately. I disagree with comparing the sound with the creature on "Lost," however. That sounded more like a loud trumpet blast. This was much more chilling and plain f#$king scary. When I watched it for the first time at the theater, at one point I had to take my eyes off the screen and look around to remind myself that I was, indeed, still inside a movie theater! It was that awesome. It gave me goosebumps and set the tone for Transformers nicely. Oh yeah... that was a pretty good flick too!!
  • Nate
    I think Abrams is just toying with us. Something tells me there is an elaborate scheme involving this and clues are out there. Just keep an eye on every big movie that comes out because he will surely be dropping hints for the next 6 months. A lot of websites seemed to be linked to it, and it might tie into lost...there are a lot of hidden implications.

    The ethanhasswasright.com website, which someone previosuly mentioned could be linked to this ends with a Biblical reference to the Apocolypse. There are scenes in between puzzles, made by what seems like a similiar film quality as the trailer, that hint at what is to come; claiming a man named Ethan Haas was right about everything. If they are linked, just remember I am the first one to call this being a movie about the Biblical Apocolypse.
  • Ryanj
    You guys ..he says, "i saw it in the light, its huge!!" ...listen man, listen!!
  • 0ktane
    I don't think anyone said "It's alive, It's huge!" I think he said "I saw it, it's a light, it's huge!" Just my .02 :) Immediately reminded me of Independence Day a few years back. The first trailer for that one simply showed the White House, then the White House being destroyed by something in the air. I recall ppl sayin WTF then too...but I think that trailer was during the super bowl that year. :) Lastly, I hope it has nothing to do with Lost. Not a fan of the show, and there are too many things to prove it's a movie. That date is a Friday, the trailer was filmed by camcorder (was lost ever filmed like that?), I don't believe anyone in the trailer was from Lost, and finally...STOP saying the roar sounded like the monster from lost...that roar sounds like 50 other monsters from numerous other movies. :) That is all.

YO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's Godzilla. That is what this trailer is for. They messed up bad on the 1st one, so this time they figured they'd do it right. They went and got JJ and put his ass to task. I bet $1 billion that it's GODZILLA 2008.

    this movie trailer was wild. it wasn't really the coolest trailer ever but it was good how they put no title. it got people like us online looking for it. good way to build hype. i also thought it was weird how the trailer before was in New York City "i am legend" with will smith.

    VOLTRON!!! Look there are clues. The guy Rob is leaving for japan the next day. Its a japanese themed party. The television reporter says there is a “thunderous roar” . Outside someones says ” Its a lion, its huge” (Its alive, its huge doesnt even make sense). Voltron fought parasite monsters. If you look on wikipedia/voltron the movies are set for the same date. I don’t know how reliable wikipedia is but it says that “there is a teaser in theaters right now playing, (such as before transformers”. Either its a genius promotion of Voltron or its a cool trailer for a monster movie filmed with digital cameras. also there is a symbol on the bottom left of the credits and i wonder if anyone can tell me what that is.

    Someone want to explain how "Godzilla" managed to send the statue of liberty's head flying for miles followed by a meteor-like trail? And why firey balls miles away are hitting buildings? And since when is Godzilla surrounded by that mass you breifly see in the trailer. It isn't Godzilla. They wouldn't shoot Godzilla from handheld cameras. Put some thought into it and it makes no sense. I promise you it is about the end of the world. And how can you say "It's alive, it's huge" doesn't make sense but a movie about a giant lion does?!

  • Wrks
    If it is a movie about Godzilla, what would be the logic in trying to making sense of meteor like objects, statue of liberty's head flying, etc. It's freakin' Godzilla. You know, a fictional radiation mutated T-rex that breathes radiation breath that missiles and rockets dont phase. Is all that was on the trailer really a far stretch that it couldn't be Godzilla? I'm hoping it is. And listen closely. Someone does say "It's Alive, it's huge" Maybe it picks up from that last bomb of a remake when one of Godzilla's eggs survived. Who knows.

    I think you're all wrong. I'm going to go out on a limb here... Ghostubusters remake. If the guy is indeed saying "I saw it! It's ALIVE! It's huge!" then i think he's talking about none other than the Stay-Puft Marshmallow man. He sounds a little more pissed than the original, but hey!
  • Lunatech
    It very well could be a godzilla movie. In most Godzilla movies there is always another monster. and this Giant lion thing could be that enemy. It could also Be(from what i have heard of parasites) a trailer for Halo...(the chance of that is 1000000/1 in favor of the not but still) it could also be not godzilla but a gamara remake (gamara is another japanese giant lizard movie franchise thats not as well known. Gamara is a giant turtle)

    How about Rampage - the video game. Everyone thought that was an awesome idea - barring some minor setbacks such as no storyline. So what do you think - will our generation be treated to a Rampage movie? My friend mentioned the possibility of Voltron - similar concept to transformers, giant mechanical robots... 80s generation comicbook/tv show. Even though my friend thinks "it's probably not Voltron because there's no way they'd be able to keep that underwraps" - I think he might be on to something. Plus... J.J. Abrams co., goes by the name "Bad Robot" - any connection or am I just pulling at straws here?
  • cliffydawg07
    I have some potentially good news: http://www.kernerresearch.com/godzilla3d.htm Appearantly there's a new Godzilla movie coming, but it's a 3-D version. Which would in itself be potentially badass if done well. However, this trailer in no way resembled any 3-D movie I've ever seen so I'm inclined to believe it is not Godzilla. I do not know what it is, but i highly doubt two Godzilla releases.....
  • That trailer was botherin me the whole day after I got out of that movie, right when i got home i did a whole bunch of research and came up with nuthin, but heres my guesses 1. A godzilla movie (Ihope not) . Jurrasic Park 4 (That would be cool) or it could be a plain original new movie Or some apocoypse That trailer looks swweet Its not a tv promo cuz it says "COming to theaters1-18-08" not just1-18-08

    i believe an actor in the trailer is named Kristen Holden-Ried you kno the one who says"This is gonna be the best night" at the end

    I was in a theater in NYC when that trailer came on. A lot of people started booing. Thousands of us already have home videos of our city being destroyed and memories of the confusion of thinking we were all about to die as the sky started falling, so I guess we don't need to see fictional versions for entertainment. I'm sure everyone else will have fun watching though.

    No matter what I try, I hear, "I saw it, it's a lion, it's huge!". "It's alive, its huge" makes no sense. Somebody asked this a while ago, the symbol in the bottom left of the credits is the Bad Robot logo so no clue there. I think we all need to get ourselves and face the fact that it's not a remake/new version of Godzilla or Voltron(even though a live action Voltron movie would be sweet! they started playing the cartoon on adult swim recently!) or anything else. From what I know about Abrams, he doesn't seem like the kind of guy would use the freedom of running his projects to do remakes. I know he's directing Star Trek but that's different, it's not HIS movie. Let's just sit back, be patient, and wait for whatever comes next from this amazing ORIGINAL movie! P.S. - I like the clue somebody found about Halloween, that's totally something Abrams would do!

    I think bottom line it's some sort of monster movie. Now in my opinion, if they're smart they'll use Godzilla instead of some new monster. Use something that already has a reputation. But then again I don't know how a Godzilla movie shot like the Blair Witch would go over. And the 2000 version of Godzilla was total crap and should be forgotten and not tied onto. I think overall it's safe to say it's definitely a monster movie shot like the blair witch. Someone made good point to the statue of libery, so it came out of the water. But as to what monster it is is up in the air. I do hope it's Godzilla, who easily makes explosions like in the trailer. But then again I saw not radioactive breath. Hmmm

  • kenny d.
    well i've read these comments before seeing the preview and now that i have seen it........WTF! at first i was thinkin it was a sequel to transformers because in the movie they were plannin to hide that cube in the city and that awkward event in the "1-18-08" preview seemed to be takin place in the city. but after seeing the cube used to kill megatron, i figured it cant be a sequel. i've heard people say it could be godzilla because you hear the word "Japan" when they're talkin about where that guy is goin. but i doubt it, godzilla aint worth all that hype. but whatever it is it must be huge to smack the statue of liberty's heavy ass head from the water all the way to the streets of the city. it was quite chilling though, hopefully its a monster, a whole new movie (not a sequel), and i hope the movie is as good as the trailer.

    I'm no expert on the book of revelations, but doesn;t it say that when the world ends there will be fire, monsters, etc. I just think it fits a little because of the whole doomsday prophesy stuff with Ethan Haas. I'm probably wrong, just throwing it out there.

    Am I the only one who thought the trailer was a bit weak? Granted, I'm on here posting about it when I don't even know what the film is, but the praise you are all giving it purports the trailer to be more than a simple mysterious viral promo and more a masterpiece. "Oh! The home video cameras and lack of notable movie stars make me feel like I'm really there, on the roof of an expensive loft in NYC!" Cheap gimmick. Voltron or bust. To hell with release dates.

    I really think it is related to Lost somehow. The sound the monster makes is nearly identical to the mysterious monster in the show. Perhaps this movie is about what happens to the rest of the world when the survivors set off the EMP on the island. They make mention that it will destroy the world on numerous occasions. However the end of this season would seem to indicate that the world is still intact after the Losties get off the island...
  • Darkone0125
    This is what they do with these types of movies. The big hype about what the monster actually is and then the big let down when you go see the movie and they never actually show it. It only took $30 million dollars to make this movie. That opening scene is it! The rest will all be about survival and they will leave what the monster looks like " up to your imagination". I'll still unfortunately will go and see it....oh well. Dam you j.j Abrams!!!

    One thing i wanted to point out is the significance of the release date, because its all theyre letting us kno, which is 1-18-08, a thursday release which is understandable for a big production release, but unusual for a winter month like January. now this might be a stretch, but the clock in lost that counted down in the hatch was 108:00, and the infamous numbers 4,8,15,16,23,42 all add up to 108. Im just pointing out that there are only 1's, 0's and 8's in the release date, and jj loves to mess with stuff like that.

    re: TheRoboticElephant Also i forgot that Bad Robot and JJ Abrams are in production of a new Star Trek movie, which makes me lose some respect for JJ cause NO ONE needs to give a reason for star trek fans to come out of their moms basements and piss off the rest of the world. its coming out christmas of 08'

    sorry mrjoe, ur right, i was lookin at 07

    HIX wtf do all those numbers add up to tho son? a LOST MOVIE? u lost me big time ninja

    Their head is a Shes ead its spit in 2 someone poste it up father they re put together the head..I dnot see wat you are seeing..? Are you on drugs??
  • HIX
    Those numbers were used all the time in lost, if you watched the show 108 is a significant number, along with the sequence of numbers. I dont think its going to be a Lost movie because a few months ago they said that lost is going to end after 3 more seasons in 2010, and i thought it would piss people off. But i was just putting it out there that the numbers were showing up with the little info we know about this movie, and more people have pointed out that the pic on 1-18-08.com is 108 kb, and some others, its just something to think about. It could be jj abrams just wanting to drop useless clues to gather a crowd with conspiracies and get us all talking so that he gets more free publicity

    Thanks MrJoe83!! Truth is it didn't take that long...guess smoking the good stuff actually helps in these situations!! But you can see it right there on the 1.18.08 web site...but you knew there would be clues there, so no big deal. Gonna rock no matter what! After a second(and 3rd, 4th, ect.) look, it has more of a demon look than anything else!!

    JayBear, on the other cloverfield post pointed out that matthew 12:36 says“"I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak." On the Ethan Haas was right puzzles he talks about this kind of thing, sort of the end of the world and how people are blind to society's wrongs. Take a look at the site ethanhaaswasright.com and let me know what you think.
  • striker
    Hix, the guy says in the first video that we have until august first to prepare, and so theres probably going to be a trailer with more info then maybe?
  • Thanks Chapter 29....now what is it???
  • Chapter29
    I would say my ex-girlfriend, but that may construed as a compliment...From all my d&d books to my current imaginations, i would say it looks like a demon, but a demon isn't really a monster in the typical sense. But every time I take a look at it,that is the first thing that pops into my twisted mind. But with CG special effects the way they are today, I guess making a monster that looks similar to a demon my be passable...I hope it is something from the 9 circle of hell - we have too many lame monster movies as it is...let's start going going back to the heaven and hell genre; kinda like they did for Vietnam movies in the 80's - the whole monster thing is played out...I think...

    i went to see Transformers with my sister and friend and both of them thought it was a type of "Godzilla" movie...set in 'new york' again...the americanize version flat out suck junk balls and piss me off but i hope to god it isnt or if its actually "Godzilla" its done right...that being said from reading some of the earlier post..is supposed to be a parasite movie..i dont know...and has anyone thought that maybe "cloverfield" is just, perhaps a title to throw us off to what this movie is actually about?..there have been times when a studio is doing a film and throws a teaser like this and the name is actually a....errr...cover name for the movie like fake title that was Batman Begins before it was Batman Begins...know what i mean?...i think my theater after watching that trailer most of them if not all of them..went WTF?....

    The site and puzzles are fine, pitbulls computer blows. there is a lot to be told from the site once you finish the puzzles, they get kinda hard, but it was interesting none the less. They are definitely tied to cloverfield though. After a couple of the puzzles the image of the city in the background is what the trailer portrayed

    I really do see a demon face in the girls hair on the left. It doesn't make sense though because the girls who appear to be twins and staring in horror at something in front of them, the demon's face is behind them. I don't know what's going to happen in this movies, but a real Biblical doomsday might be feasible. Demons unleashed from hell who go berserk and ruin humanity, while the movie follows how people survive and adapt. I don't think there is a chance of any one 'fighting' the monsters back. A la WoTW the demons/aliens might just either leave the planet after the devastation or possibly claim earth as their own. In which case people will be forced to live like bugs do today. BTW: Godzilla's shriek was higher pitched and totally distinct. This monster sound is very similar to the Tripods in WoTW, possibly mechanical. Anyway, so who knows whats going to happen? I'm sure the cast doesn't even know yet, since they are still currently filming. Any conversation on this project at this time is purely speculation. But we can all hope, can't we? =)

    Well another photo showed up on the site! Can't they at least create a forum so that we can gather up and talk about it?
  • Nate22203
    Abrams has proved himself to be a genius. He will space each hint, clue, trailer, whatever out just perfectly so we are obsessing and talking about this constantly until January the eighteenth. Without doubt, no matter what this is tied to, it's about the apocolypse. I am thinking Abram is so well connected God called him and told him the Apocolypse is going to be in 1-18-08 and to give us a head's up. Also, I agree with what a few are you are saying about the hype about this, but not neccesarily a good potential movie. The handheld camera thing could be really bad, but I just don't think Abrams would do something to make himself look too bad. He's really good at what he's doing. AND THAT'S WRAPPING US AROUND HIS FINGER.
  • Anteros
    Yes, he is wrapping us around his finger... ... but does anyone else besides me think this is fun? I feel like I'm playing an RPG.... heh heh heh
  • Nate22203
    Yeah, it's actually got a lot of people REALLY interested in something they normally wouldn't be. I think it's pretty cool. If JJ is reading this...just know that if you screw us over, there's gonna be one nasty witch hunt for your head, pal.
  • Pitbull0669
    Im with he guy above me on this one!
  • NJWAKE
    I think this is a godzilla movie. Subtle hints in the party scene gave me that idea. Like how the guy is going to Japan. And how its again in New York, a little pay back maybe. Whatever the movie may be, im stoked to see it. i went and saw transformers and after the trailer for this movie "cloverfield", me and my friend just looked at each other and were like "oh yeah!!!! deff. going to see that!!!" So im really excited to see what the deal with this one is.
  • so the photos move....wonder whats that's about. you can turn them upside down....i also just noticed the demon thing between the 2 girls....
  • Pitbull0669
    It not 2 Girls Its 1 cut i half and Moved on the other side of eac ote..In a Post a while back a guy recut them and Put them the way they should be. 1GIRL not 2.
  • ok its not 2 girls...its 1 girl...i was just saying photo of 2 girls...thats what it shows...2 girls...maybe they are twins...never know....i dont think this has ANYTHING TO DO WITH LOST....i asked a friend who has a small part in the movie about it....no comment!!!!! guess they are keeping it under wraps for a while to let us guess...im not sure if i can handle watching a hand held camera made movie on a big screen...would make me sick...
  • are you guys serious? it seems like everyone that posted here has never seen a trailer before for a movie, its kinda like war of the worlds, something different but nothing to get overly excited for, you guys are nerds.
  • Nate22203
    What was the point of posting a comment here, then, Davis? This is OBVIOUSLY different than most trailers. And you sure as hell went looking for what it was, apparently.
  • DirectorJZ
    Here is another maybe/maybe not hidden easter egg from the trailer. It seems like something JJ Abrams would do. The song playing in the background during the party in the trailer is by Wolfmother - Joker and the Thief. And the cover for that album features a Lizard.
  • Flagg79
    Definately a biblical armageddon movie. Ther are too many armageddon/bible references on these hint sites and the ethan haas sites. I say to narrow the search down for more clues, keep trying to use any numbers in the pics with bible references. Also, does anyone have a photo program to blow up the picture of the guy in glasses from the post WAAAY up at the top:http://www.betweenthestars.com/1-18-08.html Can we see a reflection in his glasses, maybe?
  • Ox
    The http://www.1-18-08.com site that now has 2 pictures that you can move around using flash player HAS to have some clue or hidden meaning. I definitely see the figure in the middle of the first picture. Who's going to catch the hidden element to the second one?
  • chichi
    this is a remake of godzilla. when the kid screams its alive and it is huge he is refering to godzilla because nyc thought they had destoyed him. in the end of the american version of godzilla one egg hatched. what other monster can make that sound? another person says have fun in JAPAN...gojjira! only thing that has me stumped is how does godzilla rip the head of the statue of liberty?
  • Danny
    LIVE ACTION EVANGELION MOVIE- enough said.
  • Ox
    Will people PLEASE stop claiming this to be Godzilla. IT'S NOT. They use that damn sound effect in movies all the time. It was used in Jurassic Park..THEY EVEN USED IT FOR SANDMAN IN SPIDERMAN 3. It's used in LOST. There are many logical reasons that prove this isn't a Godzilla movie. There is one in the works and it's going to be in 3D.
  • Jessica
    It's gotta be Voltron. Though the large monster sounds like godzilla, all you hear them saying is Roaring sounds, looks like a lion. The name they have for the movie is Cloverfield. There is also mention that the monster is reffered to as The Parasite. From what I read and remember, Voltron fought parasitic creatures. We'll find out soon enough what it is.
  • EVANGELION_PWNS!
    Yeah I agree with Danny, its got to be a trailer for the Live Action Evangelion Film!

    Well, as Mr. JD said, there be a bible verse in Matthew 12-3 about the day of judgment and judging by the other sites [like ethathaanwasright/wrong] it gotta do with something with the gods. Just a guess Dx All I know for sure is that: I GOTTA SEE THIS MOVIE!

    Aparently the movie may have a connection to the Ethan Haas thing, like an ARG (Alternate-reality-game) Taking it one step further - According to a slashfilm.com article, the Hollywood Reporter revealed some of the cast members for our secret movie. Lizzy Kaplan played "Kat" in the TV SitCom "The Class" "The Class" also featured a character by the name of Ethan Haas. Maybe something to this?

    Alright, this has to be about Gods, Evangelion, Biblical, etc. There is certainly a demon in between the women, which does appear to be the same woman. The second picture is the trickier one.

    Here is the setup: The Drules have invaded Earth and kicked our ass in the ONE DAY WAR. Humanity has gone underground. New York has been decimated and our story opens on the eve of the fifth anniversary of the Drule invasion. Think about it, Earth was conquered by an Alien race in 24 hours. Fifty-feet tall, a horrible hybrid of metal parts, complete with some kind of awful face and glowing red eyes, staring down at them. We’re not sure if this is alien or man-made, but it’s terrifying. Folks, this is a ROBEAST. The Robeasts in this script are like the sentinels in The Matrix – they patrol the earth in search of a signal which we will get to later. The Robeast emits a high-pitched industrial roar and swings its head low over the street. It swipes at the soldiers with its enormous talons as if they were in the way of what it’s really looking for… http://latinoreview.com/scriptreview.php?id=65 Its Voltron!! But I could be wrong… or am I? =)

    Awesome preview, thanks for posting this it is sad that the company making this film decided, wait a minute, let's keep everyone in more suspense rather than just release the damn trailer more than five minutes. Paramount, as if you would listen to the general public, the movie looks awesome, the more y'all keep things under wraps, the tighter the public will hold onto their wallets and wait for the dvd to arrive, rather than watch the movie in theaters. Look at how well Transformers has done so far, learn from that, before Cloverfield or whatever the title of the movie is, becomes the field of unlucky clovers of the field of lost dreams. P.S. Awesome trailer:)

    This has to be the most amazing trailer ever. Leave it to the creator of Lost to think up something like this. Ok, lots of talk that it might be a lost trailer. Reasons: A: J.J. Abrams made it, so theres a big hint. B: The roar. Sounds like the lost monster roar. One problem with that, the lost roar has a mechanical and hollow sound to it at the same time, mixed into the roar. And souds of a machine of some sorts in its movements. This roar was like a deep Godzilla style, like lion Godzilla. Now, heres where u have to look at some points in the trailer. One thing, the guy was about to leave for Japan. A hint towards The Big Friendly Green Lizard? Maybe. Second, and nobody ever seems to notice this, after one lady yells "Is it coming this way?" a guy shouts out "I see it, its a lion, its Huge!" Lion? WTF, a Lion? Giant lion, although strange, is pretty cool. I mean, maybe its a giant flaming lion? Lion of death, or just a reallly big catlike monster. One thing to point out, if you look at Godzilla, there is one monster that walks on all fours that maybe could be mistaken for a lion. I dont know, thats unlikely, but in any case, why would a giant lion be called "The Parasite"? What im thinking, is that the guy was seeing the monster, but seeing it wrong. My thinking. Godzilla, or something like it. Godzilla is the king of all monsters, litteraly, its his title, and he fights very hard for it. Plus, he shoots lazers, which, ergo, means big fiery explosions (which is something that was oddly abundent in the last Godzilla remake, minus the lazers. Thats where the last remake lost the fans. No lazers) All facts are pointing to Godzilla. Parasite is one of those simple names that are abundant in the Godzilla searies. You got a robot Godzilla, its "Mecha Godzilla" Giant Moth? Add "ra" onto "Moth". Simple as that. But, one thing is for sure. Even when people go see this movie, they wont get a full view of the creature until very late in the movie, if at all. Maybe a few leg shots, or tails just whipping around a corner out of sight just as the camera gets a look. That way, keeps up the suspense, and keeps the real feel to the movie. I mean, look at all the "real" monsters, the camera work is allways fuzzy. Never a clear whole shot. I think it would still be cool to never give a whole shot of the monster (Unless its godzilla) to make it seem like its really happening in a real world. Plus, keeping the filming to hand cameras means no lame attempt to explain the monster with science. Godzilla is Godzilla, no science required. Anyway, all Im saying is it aint lost. Thats for sure. It could be godzilla, but equal chances that it isnt, and somehow theres a giant lion tied in. (Quick note, maybe Godzilla, coming out of the sea, grabbed the first thing close by when he saw the giant "lion" to throw, little miss liberty, hence the head. Maybe the "lion" swatted it away, hence the crash to city streets. Just a thought.)
  • advarin
    IMHO Its Voltron, has to be. Voltron toy was on an episode of Lost, ROBEAST is part beast and Robot hence the mechanical roar heard in trailer. I think it says somewhere that this movie cost about 30 million to make and is all recorded on handheld video equipment. Well just a guess here but hiring extras and some definite cool special effects for a handheld device (I know the editing and SE are added later), plus advertising costs to be put on a major motion picture preview = a whole lot of loot. It is likely that yes this movie is filmed all on handheld video devices and wether or not it is Voltron, I think the advertising is a mini-movie that will produce more of these small clips in the future. Of course I could be completly wrong! But check out the Sprite commercials on the Voltron website as well as the clip from the Lost episdode. (Sprite commercials show the lions battling the Robeast in NYC) http://www.voltron.com/main.asp Good stuff either way...Check out this script review on the Voltron movie http://latinoreview.com/scriptreview.php?id=65

    Hey everybody, This is one crazy adventure and here's my input that I've found and am thinking about now. So, the photo of the two/same girl (whatever) is 108 KB in size. Well, Ethan Haas says "On August 1st something will happen". Well, "08/1" is August first, right? So move the 1 to the end and you have August first. It's a little bit of a stretch, but hey, it might mean something. Also, the original photo on http://www.1-18-08.com is still available here http://www.1-18-08.com/1-18-08.jpg I'm digging around for the new one....I wonder what the name is. If we can get that photo maybe somebody can do some image processing on it to see if there are any clues. Also, there's a new site that seems a little bogus. http://www.parasitemovie.com/ I don't trust it because it links to two e-commerce sites http://www.tossinggames.com/ (on the main page) http://www.sledriding.com/ (pulls the main content from sledriding.com/cloverfield.html) The parasite page has a javascript countdown and it hits 0:00 on August 1st at 12:36 AM (the time is probably lifted from the first photo on the official site) As I said before, I don't trust this site, but maybe there are clues?...or maybe it's just somebody trying to cash in on the hype. I'm excited to read any responses and if I encounter anything new I'll post it here too!
  • Cloverfiel Gossip
    All these theories are getting a little out of hand. I think it's original content, not a remake. I wouldn't be surprised if it's very Lovecraft-ish, but I don't think it will be an adaptation.
  • Kali Yuga
    http://kaliyugatheory.blogspot.com/ Kali Yuga - the Hindu end of the world. Marked by the scourging of sin and wars between the Gods. Gods that bear strange, celestial weapons, one of which goes so far as to resemble a nuke. (it's just a theory) (it could still be Cthulhu)

    were is the video for come on
  • Sheila
  • whats with the countdown on http://www.parasitemovie.com ??? just wondering. is that when they will put the trailer up?
  • FRANKLIN
    ALRIGHT, I HAVE READ EACH COMMENT ON THIS PAGE UP TO 289 AND LOOKED UP ALL THE INFORMATION I COULD ON THIS MOVIE AND I'M NOT SAYING I'M SOME SORT OF EXPERT ON THIS CAUSE OBVIOUSLY I'M NOT BUT I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY FIRST OFF THAT THIS MOVIE LOOKS completly and entirely original original as in no remake of godzilla or voltron type thing and especially not gears of war [which would be cool and anyone who has played gears of war would have to admit] i can't see godzilla walking up to the statue of liberty and thinkning "nice head....i think i'll take it" and chucking it down the street. another thing..... all the people wanting it to be a judgement day thing, i'm with you i think it would be cool but you guys are just disappointed from lost, so get real and finally, i've watched this preview like 40 times on the internet and 4 in movies and i continue to hear "its a lion". mainly what a look for is if it has an N sound which it does seem to have.
  • BumBAY
    i think i saw somewere that the new godzilla game comming out u will have to fight a lion type monster like a sphinx, maybye its tied in someway if its a Godzilla movie.
  • Kali Yuga
    For a thirty mil budget? It is not Eva.
  • Mike
    All those for "its a Lion say "its a lion!"
  • Mike
    I must say that this page has the most thought provoking arguments on the web. I am impressed. I say he said its a lion. Not its alive. What a way to bring back the cold war monster movies of the 50's if this is the case. In any event I'am hooked to the top secret treatment, and the air of mystery. I will follow this one till the end. Even if it turns out to be a Lost movie.
  • advarin
    One thing that crossed my mind (Voltron or not) is that it may be a promotional film set to come out on 01-18-08. What I mean is it could be just a film setting up Hype/Storyline for a Bigger production movie. I know Transformers had the a comic/novel realeased before the movie to bring everyone up to speed on what happened before the movie. This may be a short pre-quel for a film. Just a thought
  • advarin
    Maybe we need to eliminate possible Remakes by property rights and get the facts going here. I am biased towards Voltron just for the script review similarities.

  • Frank
    Stating the obvious but the countdown on "The Parasite" website that Sheila mentioned above is counting down to 1st August, which is the date that ethanhaaswasright.com told us to wait for after you had completed all the puzzles.
  • Chris
    Wow, this is really starting to all come together now! http://www.parasitemovie.com's countdown, for those who have completed the puzzle's on ethanhaaswasright.com, is in direct relation to the day that we're all supposed to return to ethanhaaswasright.com with our code -- August 1! This is all too intriguing, and darn it, I'm getting impatient. :) I can also say that my vote is for all new content, and based on the demon in pic 1 and the possessed guy in pic 2 of 1-18-08.com shows that it's closer to something about the end times, demons, gods, or Eva. Here's the two pics from 1-18-08.com with the clues in focus: http://www.productsiege.com/1-18-08.jpg.
  • Chris
    Sorry, the link was wrong above, just remove the period from the end... http://www.productsiege.com/1-18-08.jpg

    Deamon Boy is to obviouse. The Devil in the hair is just that. Hair. The realigned picture IN comment 193 raised my eyebrow. Maybe the other photo needs the date rearrange to the leftside somehow?
  • Mke
    Matt Greenfield was on the panel for the Eva QA. Greenfield.......Cloverfield.......See comment 277 to see what Im Talking abot.
  • so what if the 2 images on http://www.productsiege.com/1-18-08.jpg the one of the guy is actually the girl in the 1st photo??? i don't think this is a remake of anything, something new....i dont think they say its a lion...in the trailer at the theatre you can clearly hear him say its alive. maybe the statue of liberty came to life and moved and the head came off!!! the noise was the sound of the metal from it....i dunno. i dont really think thats what it is....but maybe something casued it to come to life...we have a headless statue of liberty walking about NYC...haha
  • Mike
    The guy going to japan.....Is...a..Eva pilot..?Neh.Or going to the school.
  • DID ANYONE NOTICE BUT ON http://www.ethanhaaswasright.com/ THERE ARE 2 STARS...IF YOU CLICK ON THE LEFT ONE IT GOES TO AN EMAIL...IF YOU CLICK ON THE 2ND ONE IT SAYS SOMETHING IN SOME FUNKY LANGUAGE...SYMBOLS. ANYONE ELSE CATCH THAT OR WAS IT JUST ME....WHATS THE LANGUAGE THINGS?????

    EVANGELION! WOOT WOOT!
  • mike
    So just Like how they made a American Godzilla. They will make an American Eva.
  • advarin
    I think the Evangelion movie will be based in Japan like in the series. If my memory serves me correctly from the series most of the cities we know today are underwater after the second impact wich would include New York city. As far as I can tell in the Trailer it just looks like modern day New York but who knows. I have not seen or found a script review for the Evangelion movie so I can't compare the trailer and reviews. Don't get me wrong either a totally new movie or Eva or Voltron would be awsome! just don't get the Eva vibe from this
  • advarin
    Hey on the o1-18-08 site in the party picture the banner saying WE'LL MISS YOU ROB has letters made up of pictures. Can anyone confirm? and it probably has nothing to do anything lol

    The guys who's drinking in the middle of the 2nd picture...His eyes are strangely black. Maybe I've been staring at these pictures for too long? Another question: I read on a site that a few days ago only the photo of the girl was on the site. Think they'll keep adding pictures as we get closer to 1-18?
  • Chris
    questions...that's correct, when I first visited the site, there was only the pic of the woman/women.
  • questions
    Ah... When did they add the 2nd pic, do you know? (This is so curious, kind of fun to try and figure out. :)
  • Sean
    OK First off its not "its a loin its huge" its "its alive its huge" and i have prove in form of Spectroanalysis witch can be found on youtube http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZRSaXSRyZMs 2nd its not the voltron movie the only reason that even started was b/c of the whole "its a lion its huge" thing. i mean come on any one thats read the script review posted on http://latinoreview.com/scriptreview.php?id=65 cant tell theres no way that that moive could be made in the home video way that "coverfield" promises 3rd http://www.ethanhaaswasright.com/ has every thing to do with this movie its a viral-marketing campaign along with http://ethanhaaswaswrong.blogspot.com/ also found on the ethanhaaswaswrong site is a line referencing cthulu http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cthulhu and later gos on to say "This movie is about C'thulhu appearing in New York City and wreaking havoc on the populace. Its not just your average monster movie, though. Here's the extra special gimmick that's never been done before: The whole film is shot by everyday citizens with their own home-video cameras. Doesn't that sound exciting as shit? Hell yeah it does. Let's save everybody a bunch of time and just send those Oscars to J.J. Abrams immediately." so so far it looks like Cthulhu is the most likely monster

    please let this be Eva, please.....
  • I'm going to go ahead and assume that the movie might just be called "the parasite" i think that girl IS in fact in both pictures and she is seeing that black eyed drinking guy through a mirror! the only way this is provede wrong is because of the times he pics were taken im hoping its either a lion or cthulhu!!!!!!!!!
  • and i think Local(316) is one of the extras!

  • CrackV
    Allright, Steve King is mentioned as the cousin of Ethan Haas on the Tossinb games site, during a conversation that is started by a man asking to see Ethan Haas or Van. This forum entry ends with a member named ethanhaas coming up and ending it with "im in ur mind, predicting all ur actionz". I'm following the links, and theyre taking me to more and more hints as to what the movie is about. I suggest anyone truly into this mystery do so as well. Those sponsor sites arent bogus, they are trails. We have to follow them.
  • advarin
    crack V send me an personal e-mail at the tossing game site i will help with puzzle
  • lennit
    for the 5th Puzzle put in The beginning is the end (yes, two "n"s in "beginning") and for all the people who are anti-voltron, well, yes, it seems that it's not voltron if the script that was leaked is true, but look at this Voltron is set to come out on 1-18-08....umm...yeah....interesting eh? It has been confirmed that Voltron will fight a robeast IN Manhattan, and also other places in the world And who said that the Statue of Liberty's head was thrown?? What if two (or more) things were duking it out on liberty island and they just happened to throw a punch, MISS, and knock Lady Liberty's block off? The thing is, this is downtown Manhattan, and the Statue is a pretty good ways away! So that has to be a LOT of force to send that thing over so if it was thrown, ok, or if it wasn't...WOW...I'm guessing it wasn't because that would be more terrifying, eh? Also, I think we should all keep open minds here. Everywhere I go I hear "but why would Voltron destroy NYC?" or "Why would Godzilla do this or that?"....well, I already stated the fighting part and the environment is just casualties of war, but what if the thing isn't intentionally attacking NYC? What if it was attacking a symbol of the United States? (say the White House would be it's next target?)...or who knows what else? This is J.J. Abrams we're talking about so do you really think it's going to be something as simple as "random scary monster rampaging downtown NYC for the fun of it"? I don't think so, there has to be more. Also, about the TossingGames.com site The person saying "yeah, I knew Ethan" is totally lying...they registered for the forums on 7-7-07 at 8:02pm So yeah, don't get your hopes up. I thought I read somewhere that Paramount owned the IP for 1-18-08.com and the last 3 digits were like .104...and then .105 was for http://www.parasitethemovie.com/ (which is a "page under construction" type message). Maybe somebody is just tossing this other site up there because the "creature" is rumored to be called "the parasite"...nothing too official yet.... And sadly, to debunk the Voltron stuff, Voltron is being released by Universal and the script was written by Justin Marks (not the write of "cloverfield" who happens to be Drew Godard...if you look at the last second of the trailer it shows all the major credits and his name is there) So, sadly, it's not Voltron, but Voltron IS being made and will come out 1-18-08 if all things go well :) But though, I still hear "it's a lion, it's huge" every time I watch and listen to the trailer. Seriously....'it's alive" would not make sense unless they guy was frantic and meaning something like 'the statue of liberty if alive"...but then...why would it be huge?...maybe it grew to a gigantic size, lost it's head because some parasitic creature assimilated it and didn't need it's head because it has it's own? Tons of speculation, what is right? If Ethan Haas is tied with it then it seems very Revelations/Apocolyptic in nature.....picture the Beast rising from the sea (Atlantic Ocean) and destroying the "empire" (USA) Now, THAT would be freaky. Now, after listening to the Spectroanalysis of the trailer I still hear "it's a lion". I don't understand why people are getting really mad and saying "It's ALIVE" not "LION"....with the all caps on "ALIVE". I'd have to say about 80% or a little more capitalize the letters....why is that? Why are people getting so mad over "lion" and "alive"?.....hmmm...how many people are not who they seem to be? What if somebody from Paramount is going around trying to plant false (or correct) information? Woah, too creepy...pretty much, nothing is confirmed but the trailer and the release date....and a few other things, but what can we trust outside of the trailer?
  • CrackV
    yeah, cool thanks. Anyway trail leads to nothing. I wrote up this whole big explanation that summarized everything i know, took me a while, but suffice it to say that with all evidence totaled up, It aint voltron. Whats voltron without the people piloting it, and how cheesy it would be for all this suspense and horror to lead to a giant colorful lion robot that conveniently allways comes to save the day. I heard Lion, the alive people can just shut up and hey, it can be a living lion. Happy? Plus, what idiot would say after being asked what he saw "its alive". DUH, what else is huge and roars? Dead stuff? Look, its called the parasite. Maybe lion is good guy, or bad guy, but i dont think a lion would be a parasite. Whatever. Also, it aint EVA, the eva movie was going to be segmented parts of the actual eva series, sectioned into the first six eppisodes, then the second, then the third in a trilogy of sorts. So i dont remember eva ever coming to Manhatten. Drinking guy is Rob everyone, he isnt a freaking demon. Why would Rob, the guy who everyone likes and is about to leave for japan, be a demon? Now, the creepy person behind him and the grey thing between the girls, yeah, thats more demon like. Anyway, i think this is going to be an origional movie. Try to remake, and disapoint die hard fans, or make new movie, and create fans? I think the second is the better way to go. Still, if anyone else wants to try to track down this Steve King, Rhialto, ARG, Ethan Haas, or Van, go right ahead. I have taken the trail pretty far, and Steve King does seem suspicious. Considering his main page talks about him being a waste treatment dude from St. Louis (which Rhialto mentiones, saying that a cousin of Ethan Haas works in St. Louis handling hazordous waste treatment and is an eco nut) and on the tossing games site forums the steve guy seems to know nothing about the hazzordous waste biz and anything about Ethan Haas. Kinda odd. Plus, the whole dude named "ethanhaas" showing up saying he is in our minds and can see our actions is kind of strange. Maybe just some idiots screwing up the mystery, maybe not. Still, worth checking out and monitering.
  • Crack V
    Hey, just found something, ARG, a guy who posted on the forums that talked about Ethan Haas, well, ARG stands for Alternate reality Game. These types of games all try to be as real as possible, and involve many real things. Im not saying this is a game, but what if all this mystery is the game? ARG's often involve lots of puzzles, real world events and places and facts. The Lost experience was almost an ARG, maybe all this is sort of one too.
  • I have lots to report. I received the following message from Van Mantra. We now know Van's last name, but it also is the name of a Ski boot by the Vans company. ================== sorry my response has taken so long, I have to keep moving, I can't stay in one place for very long. There are forces here on earth and beyond that are trying to stop us from spreading the truth. You're taking a big risk contacting me but I understand why you are, I would rather face the future with my eyes open than closed. I have to make sure I can trust you, it's risky for me to contact anyone, they are always looking for me, I can't stay in one place for very long. You've gotten this far so I will tell you more. View the source to see past the puzzles, there are answers beneath. HAAS will open the second key for you if you need more help try contacting me again at this address, I'll keep using it as long as I think it's safe. good luck... to all of us........ ================== Most of us already know about the cryptic message in the source of the website, so nothing new here. Apparently the ethanhaaswasright.com site is registerd to Van at 2205 Holly Pine Cir to a Jessica Mock. I live in Orlando and was shocked to see that this address is off of Chuluota Rd (pronounced CHEW-lee-oh-tah) and looks very much like Cthulhu. At any rate, I replied to the message and received this: ================== It's worse than I thought, the Mezin have found my location and hacked into my phone. I need to go off the grid until I can find a safe location to transmit. If you need help finding the answers you seek, trust HAAS for the second key, it will unlock the mysteries. Beyond that, look for other believers. We are growing stronger everyday, there are many out there that have found the path. Search and you will find the keys to unlock the puzzles. -- Van ================== So a quick google of Mezin shows that Mezin is a city in France as well as an archaeological site in the Ukraine. Enjoy the clues and keep me posted if anyone finds anything else. Christopher luckyink*at*gmail(dot)com

    Okay, just for those who didnt notice. I went to the http://www.ethanhaaswasright.com and clicked on the blue star and sent an email to it: van@ethanhaaswasright.com, I got this in return: If you're receiving this auto-response message it means that I've gone into hiding. You should be careful now, too. They're likely to start coming after all of us in an attempt to keep the balance of power in their favor. But remember, as our numbers increase as a group, the weaker they'll become. As you recruit new people to our cause, you might need to share this message as guidance for how to navigate the 5 locks to the key code... 1) The first lock will test your memory. Follow the trail of light and sound, but be careful -- one wrong move will send you back to the beginning. 2) For the second lock, you may need to look to the stars. They will help you find HAAS who will lead your way. 3) The third lock will require you to extinguish all lights but one. Only with one light remaining will you be able to proceed. 4) The fourth lock will let you move all 4 pieces through the control of one. However, unless the three key pieces are simultaneously placed into position, you will not be granted access. 5) The fifth lock will be the toughest. Seek help again from the stars to reveal your key and the message that you must decode. The two working together will open the way. Good luck. Van then a second e-mail followed with teh subject line: ------------- they found me (was: I'm one of you... help me!) and the message was as follows: It's worse than I thought, the Mezin have found my location and hacked into my phone. I need to go off the grid until I can find a safe location to transmit. If you need help finding the answers you seek, trust HAAS for the second key, it will unlock the mysteries. Beyond that, look for other believers. We are growing stronger everyday, there are many out there that have found the path. Search and you will find the keys to unlock the puzzles. -- Van This time the sender's name was Van Mantra, but what I noticed was that when you click on the star it opens Outlook with the default subject line of "I'm one of you... help me!" the subject line of this second e-mail is: ------------- they found me (was: I'm one of you... help me!) so this leads me to believe that "was" is a person or something else...not to be used in a sentence like ethan hass was right. maybe ethan, HAAS, was, and right are meaningful in a diff way?

  • Mike FREEFALLL666
    The statement ITS ALIVE is quite blooming simple, If it was a machine that was attacking or an Aircraft then a statement of Its a machine would be acceptable. Its alive indicates an OBVIOUS INTELLIGENCE AND RAGE. Maybee even indicating that maybee a statue or mountain other than the Statue Of Liberty shatters open at the start of the movie before the party. There would be an obvious shock at the attack and anyone pannicking wont be thinking logically. Think of Airshow crashes, some run from it others run toward it, it isnt logical to run towards a massive fire/
  • Sean G
    one more thing in the trailer theres a huge roar then black out then there watching a news report about the roar not the thing that made it meaning no one has seen it yet. also the head of the statue of liberty look like its been throw meaning something had to have been in the ocean. now i theory is that the roar came from a monster hiding in the sea and then rises up and starts the devastation. oh also "Cthulhu is the demon god of the sea" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cthulhu#Star-spawn_of_Cthulhu

I think this whole thing is an ARG. The entertainmet is trying to figure out what is going on - just like the people in the trailor were trying to figure out wtf was happening to them. I think the answers tie into the Ethan Haas thing - no doubt. I think the entertainment value of this movie is going to be dictated by the months of discovery leading up to its release - with the movie finally being the payoff. This has to be an ARG, and it has to be connected to this Ethan Haas stuff. No one ever commented on my Jennifer Kaplan / The Class = Ethan Haas discovery :(

    It looks pretty cool! But the last movie I was psyched to see was 'War Of The Worlds'. God-knows I couldn't get enough of the trailers and previews. ...........and then it arrived........don't get me started.......(Jesus-H! Will you shoot Tim Robbins already!!!! Yeeesh!) I just hope (I PRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!) this one avoids all of the usual cliches: Characters outrunning fireballs Computer geek/hackers with a backpack full of the latest computer hacking hardware The 'at odds' couple who reunite at movie's end.......after killing the monster/alien and/or saving the planet. Musical score that signals that the monster is approaching Musical score that....oh, heck,.....screw the musical score. Action, good dialogue and plot will do fine. Characters who survive brutal physical attacks with a mere shrug and "I'll be OK. Just hand me that torn sheet/shirt/whatever." Characters who talk loudly (or shout) while 'cautiously' walking thru an island full of dinosaurs. Ignoring basic physics in order to do some 'cool-looking stuff'. (Slo-mo 'Matrix' style maneuvers.) The character who treks miles back into the 'no-man's land' to rescue family/friend. Cutsey winks and nods to sci-fi/monster flicks of the past. Child characters who serve only as a ploy to attract younger theater-goers. ('Short Round' anyone?) The one 'everyman' character who gets all of the clues....realizes all of the weaknesses.....and saves the day. The character who's never spent a day in the gym, yet manages to outrun, outfight, etc. all of the bad guys. Did I leave out anything?

The character who treks miles back into the 'no-man's land’ to rescue family/friend. Cutsey winks and nods to sci-fi/monster flicks of the past. Child characters who serve only as a ploy to attract younger theater-goers. ('Short Round’ anyone?) The one 'everyman’ character who gets all of the clues….realizes all of the weaknesses…..and saves the day. The character who's never spent a day in the gym, yet manages to outrun, outfight, etc. all of the bad guys. Did I leave out anything?" Yeah, Eva :)
  • HELP!!!! I can't figure out puzzle # 4....how do I start it? I have tried now for a while and give up then go back to it....someone please help. Thanks
  • Curtis---- Did you ever figure out how to get past the 2nd puzzle? If not what you do is put your mouse over the right star, then the symbols are actually the alphabet a-z....you have to spell out HAAS then it unlocks. Did you get the email of the clues? That really helps!
  • Joel
    I hope its about Cthulhu, I think that would be bad ass. I dont watch Lost at all so I hope it has nothing to do with it.
  • MrJoe83
    I just read something that should probably be ignored but at this point, who knows what to believe...Somebody posted a comment on one of the analysis videos on youtube claiming to know somebody attached to the movie. Apparently, they're claiming that you never see the monster and the ending is "unsatisfying". I've been thinking about it, this is something that Abrams would do, look how long it takes to reveal something on LOST and even when something is answered, the answer brings with it more questions! As long as the entire movie is as amazing as the trailer, I honestly don't care if they never show the monster. But then again, I'm one of the few people that thought the end of The Sopranos was genius! Imagine if David Chase and JJ Abrams made a movie together...we would never find out anything! I still think this is something completely original and I'm not sold on all the Ethan Haas stuff yet, but that might change on August 1st.
  • briang
    was he not supposed to do a star trek movie for paramount.
  • MIKE FREEFALLL666
    Goddamn I hope they do show the bloody monster, that would be such a rip if they dont.
  • too many clues make me think this is cthulhu... and is it me or did the liberty head look kinda small!!!
  • Ox
    In the end, I think the most ironic thing about all this is it's probably going to be something Abrams thought up all on his own. There probably isn't a precursor. Meaning: He didn't take the idea from Godzilla or Voltron or anything like that. He may have vaguely used an IDEA like Cthulhu, but I bet it's mainly his own thinking. And that means that all this searching will be for not...because if it's original then that means there's not going to be anything out there about it. What do you guys say we hunt down one of the actors in the trailor and hold them hostage til they answer. (Just a joke)
  • Anteros
    I agree with Alex... This is Cthulhu. Too many hints to ignore. We don't need to wait for August 1st Going out on a limb and calling it. All these other little boy fantasies just don't cut it with JJ Abrams involved. No Voltron. Already filming. (It's Alive!) It's a lion?!? Please... you're embarrassing the rest of the human race with that sorry interpretation. Stick your thumb back in your mouth and go back to sleep. No Godzilla. Already filming (Though it would be cool to have a remake of "Gojira") No Evangelion. Already in pre-production work. (Can't wait for that!) No Gamera or any other childish monster boys you can think of. This is either Cthulhu... or something completely original. Sign me up.

  • crackV
    Hah, i posted a comment on that two days ago. I checked, there isnt anything in the forum, but i think it was just a hint to sort of tell you that you are on the right track with the searching. I've followed the clues for a few days now, and I'm at a dead end. It keeps taking me to waste treatment websites as dead ends. But i will keep looking.

  • CrackV
    Hey everyone, check this out. On IMDB, a guy named "My_Name_Is_Van" has posted a series (A very large series) of threads all pertaining to this Parasite movie. At first it may seem fake, but its right on the dot. No chance this guy is fake. Plus, the hidden clues throughout it are crazy! At one point, he leaves the final words in a thread "Dials Glitz Into", moved around, that spells "It isnt Godzilla" . Also, after everyone on the threads started saying he was fake, he left clues that eventually reorder themselves to say "Viral marketing". I dont know about you, but that sort of sells it for me. If you still think its fake, look at when he joined. It was before the trailer was released! So he knew about all this stuff before the trailer. Anyway, what i have gathered is this. The parasites, which feed off of electricity or energy or something, have culture. Ethan Haas predicted thier coming. Mezin Source is something that a group of special people follow, and Ethan Haas was a big kahuna in the group. The parasites all come from one big parasite, called the "Parent". The parasites have culture, and one confirmed human talks to them. The guy was named Freddy, or something. Anyway, theres chaos, the entire US is under attack by the time the threads get allong in the posts. Eventually he talks about how they are going to plan something big, and its all going to happen on August first, probably at 12:36, because that number is allways highlighted. Heres some anagrams that have yet to be solved. Hethdnstgen noT T2oww (that one just doesnt have a meaning yet. Take away the 2 and O and you get "Not Third World War) Scsoeosornadrgeadehpergeminesleopnihngs (that may just not be an anagram, but its pretty openly shown) Evil travels on shifting shadows God is the key to Freddy had another theory crual goodbye 'good luck' *END of anagrams* Somehow a lady named Loretta is involved, i think Van said it was his wife. She's dead. But still. Im starting to think this is an origional work. No chance its godzilla, or voltron, or eva. Possible Cthulu, but doubtful. In my opinion, its all new, but has to do with aliens somehow, or maybe things that have been here since before humans. Probobly not aliens, but still.
  • Franklin
    i'm not sure whats going on or if you people have not realized it yet but the movie is about cthulu. i thought people already knew that cause i started seeing posts about it yesterday but you people have seemed to go backwards
  • lennit
    There is nothing definitive saying the movie is about Cthulu. IF you have proof then please post links to that proof. Right now, nothing but the trailer and the 1-18-08 website is confirmed. Geesh, Ethan Haas is suspicious but still not 100% confirmed.

  • Flagg79
    First off, this guys has waaaaay too much time on his hands. But he made a few good points. Watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=im7wWMVzIyg The main thing to realize is that a lot of the stuff he points out in the trailer HAS been photoshopped in. I've been a graphic artist for 6 years and I can spot a photoshop job pretty easily. The guy didn't point it out, but I'm almost positive that the "ACE 2004" was photoshopped. What is that???
  • Franklin
    its probably nothing but i'm just wondering, when in the trailer during the first few interviews of the movie the camera holder is like "its for rob. its to say something to him before he leaves" and i think the chic responds " rob hoffman, i'm gonna miss him" i'm just wondering if the dudes name iis Rob Hoffman or if i am miss hearing.

    bye the way, type in ACE 2004 into google man it might give you some hints. might be a sponsor of some sort

  • H-O-L-Y S-H-I-T!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to see this movie more than I want to breathe my very last breath! It's going to rock SOOO HARD! Definitely looks like the best thriller I've seen in a looooooong time! At first I thought it might be about the rapture or the end of the world or something... man, this is gonna scare the living shit outta me! OOOOO I can't wait! I'm dying here!
  • RockGod8112
    The movie was great! Amazing everything! Totally better than Spider-Man 3!!! Anyway, for everyone who thinks the trailer at the beginning of Transformers w/ no title, but a date of 1/8/08 is going to be LOST related better not get their hopes up because IT ISN'T!!!! LOST only has two more seasons left before it ends.....if you don't believe me go to IGN.com and look for yourself. And besides, LOST is going to have Flash-Forwards from now on instead of Flash-Backs, for anyone who didn't know that. At first I thought it was going to be some comedy of a guy who's all that and has to go away to Japan or w/e just like everyone else probably thought as well, but nooooo, it actually scared me when the earthquake thing hit. NOBODY SAW IT COMING!!! It was great! Then after it ended I was like WTF!?!? NO NAME!? So I just thought it was going to be another Godzilla movie, but it couldn't be.....'cause they already made an awsome remake in '98 or '99 w/ Mathew Brodrick....it was awesome and whats the point to make another one just a few years later? But really, the working title is Cloverfeild, keywords WORKING TITLE. So it could change. By the way.....RockGod8112 is my gamertag for anyone who wants to play Gears of War and get OWNED!!! Even thought it's called Cloverfield (So Far) this could be the Gears of War movie and couldn't be for some reasons. First, the explotion came from underground, it looked like, just like how the Locust Horde from the planet Sera came up, so that's a reason it could be. Second, the teaser is in the present and on planet Earth, Gears of War is in the future and on planet Sera. But who knows. HOPEFULLY it isn't Gears of War becuase that would totally defeat the purpose of the game. The movie HAS to be exactly like the game, just like how Transformers was EXACTLY like the cartoon and the Lord of the Rings was EXACTLY like the book (except for some minor details left out). And not like how Doom, Ghost Rider, the X-Men, and the Spider-Man movies weren't like the comics or videogame. (Even though Spider-Man 1, 2, and 3 were amazing!)

  • chris
    oh you were talking to rock god
  • FRANKLIN
    alright, what seems to have happened is that progress on discovering the secrets of cloverfield have slowed a great deal if not come to a screaching halt so i think it would be wise to review the information we all have brought together while we wait for another hint QUICK FACTS!: MOVIE HAS BEEN IN WORKS SINCE FEBUARY AND HAS A SET BUDGET OF 30 MIL WHICH WOULD LEAVE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE IT IS GONNA BE KINDA CHEAP 1. Ideas for what the movie is about ~godzilla has been appearantly put away until 2013 i heard so it can't be godzilla but what i also heard was that a godzilla 3d movie is bein worked on so either way no godzilla ~voltron movie is already being made for sometime in 2008 {possibly in the summer would be my guess} ~the ever popular eva whatever is also being made into a seperate movie which is not cloverfield ~cthulu [pronounced ka-thoo-loo] is appearantly the most likely candidate as of right now not to say its the most popular because most people have not heard of it. for those who have not already taken the liberty of researching it Cthulhu is a fictional monster created by horror author H. P. Lovecraft, 2. Etahn Haas ~ this is a topic i know little about but what i have gathered is poeple have made connections with this game based on a resitance and the cloverfield teaser. If this does prove to be connected we will hopefully recieve new information on august 1 [ the game is very hard so i gave up quickly ] 3. "A Lion"-"Alive" ? ~ early on this was one of the most controversial topics mainly because to the untrained ear [like my own] it does sound like he says "its a lion" but i guess voice analysis' have disproved that if you have any thoughts or disagree with my own please respond
  • FRANKLIN
    Lennit, the fact is suspicious or not, ethan haas is clearly all about cthulu and if it is connected with cloverfield then we have our answer on whats destroying new york city

    Hey guys and girls! The teaser is online on the Apple website!!! Go grab it!!! (It's even in HD format.) http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/11808/

And there is an Apple link there that works as well, but you can watch it on FS.net. Enjoy! And after watching and listening again, I really really think he says "it's a lion." I didn't believe it, but this trailer release but the cap on it for me...
  • tn1
    @J-fight: How do you mean? I just watched it! (Assuming that the "no its not it doesn't work" is about the trailer being online on Apple's Trailers site.)
  • lennit
    Franklin, Please post your proof showing that Ethan Haas was about Cthulu. I see nothing there linking it except end times speak. My larger piece of info against Cthulu is that Cthulu's city, R'lyeh, is supposedly located in the Pacific Ocean, yet NYC is by the Atlantic. Slight problem with location. The only thing I've seen that points towards Cthulu is that somebody sent an e-mail with the text "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" (which is the chant for "In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.") to Mezin Source and got a response saying "we need more believers like you". Well, those e-mails are auto generated by code, but they're not all going to have the same message. I asked who Ethan Haas was and I'm sure if any e-mail that has "ethan haas" in it and is lacking a few other words like "don't believe" or other anti-Ethan stuff would get the response I got of "he was a prophet and don't listen to him, he's false" yet if you show some sort of allegiance to Mezin Source you get the pat on the head e-mail. However, if you send garbled text (like the cthulu chant) they just default to the "we need more believers like you". In this case, Mezin Source believes in Cthulu and Ethan Haas doesn't. But Ethan Haas predicted the destruction, yet wouldn't Cthulu followers be FOR destruction since he comes back to life? Nothing links to Cthulu, so if you have any proof I'm totally open to taking it in :) Oh, my information came from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cthulu though you can't entirely believe that because anybody can edit the pages, but I got the chant from there and that's a pretty widely known thing. Thoughts? I know people like Cthulu, but you can't overlook the things that contradict Cthulu just because it's what you want. I want it to be Voltron or Eva, but I'm not gearing myself towards anything. Try looking at the facts we have available and go from there. Right now, none of us can say what it is, but I see people out there going "it's THIS" or "it's THAT!" and not backing themselves up. But, if they back themselves up and there's no doubt that they're right, then awesome! That's our goal right now, to figure out what this is :)
  • FRANKLIN
    figures this would happen. you need to pay to see it. they are selling us advertisement. see how low they have sunk?
  • J-fight
    yea the apple site you gotta buy some crap for
  • I agree with #394 - MrJoe83 in all sense of what he said. I think it's original and I think for sure he says "it's a lion" but either way, I am insanely excited for this. It could be huge and incredible and still only $30 million...
  • FRANKLIN
    go to etahn haas was right .com and go to view on your computer and look at page source. at the bottom of the page source code there is a quote directly from the story of cthulu if you know anything about cthulu. i'll go get it now

    ...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. written in the page source of http://www.ethanhaaswasright.com at the bottom
  • FRANKLIN
    actually this is the page with the proof that it says "its alive" i will tell you all right now it definitely does sound like lion but this guy proves it says alive http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uHbwPF5yJk&mode=related&search=
  • FRANKLIN
    mr joe please got to the site i have posted
  • J-fight
    this kid with crazy time on his hands really broke it down and slowed it down so that any one can tell he says "ALIVE!" GO TO THAT YOUTUBE LINK FRANKLIN POSTED!
  • FRANKLIN
    you idiot he slows it down so even a three year old would be able to hear him say "its alive!" come on man! i completely agree with you it sounds like he says a lion in normal speed but the key word is SOUNDS! he says "its alive"
  • lennit
    I listened to the broken down part as well and I hear "lion" too. I don't hear a "v" sound at the end of the word, but a faint "n". Why are people getting upset about this and calling the "Lion" people idiots? I haven't seen any hostility from the "lion" people but tons of all caps and name calling from the "alive" people. If there are people who listen to this video which people call "proof" and still don't believe it, then I don't consider it complete and exactly proof. If I'm wrong and he says "alive" I'll live up to it. I'm not definitively saying it's one or the other, but I haven't been shown one is more right than the other, even in that video. So I'm still hearing "lion", and what's so wrong if it is "lion"? Why must people be so upset? And Franklin, I've been looking at the page source of every sight we've found and I noticed that text too, but how is it Lovecraftian? Well, it could be inspired by him, but does not mean it IS from him. And I don't see any reference to stars or whatever in there. "Look to the stars for help" usually means something like "look to your God in the skies" but I don't see Cthulu. Any quotes from Lovecraft that can confirm your suspicions?
  • chris
    it seems that they have changed a few things on this new teaser. very interesting. the wierd and out of place girl voice while going down the stairs that someone slowed down and it sounded like "stop doing that" and someone els reversed and it said "say bad ass" is no longer in the trailer at all. another thing is in the new trailer it doesn't sound like he says lion either. it is clearly alive. in the old one it sounded like lion any way my two cents
  • Sean G
    ok just when frame by frame thur the HD 1080p trailer and there a few things i noticed 1st on the refrigerator theres the word mystery on the side and top right and theres also a cute little monster face on the top left 2nd on the wall right after the 1st roar near the window there a paddle with the letters AKM 3rd the new report time was 12:32 meaning the pic on the web site was taken only mins after that new cast 4th the time on the clock at the being is ABOUT 10:13 11:13 (HARD TO TELL) 5th the statue of liberty's head hits a building with a billboard with the numbers 401 6th the black car they duck behind has the tag ABZ 3293 7th as the camera man focuses on the head you can see a sign in the corner with red writing, the best i can make out is the letters DeaD DE*** i cant make out the last 3 leters so yeah none of this might not have anything to do with the movie but i just thought id put it out there and mabey you guys could add or come up with some ideas on the meaning
  • Pingback: 01-18-08 - Fires of Heaven Guild Message Board()

  • FRANKLIN
    I can admit right now to you that i sounds like lion in the old one. you are right when i hear it i look for the n sound and i find it somehow but when he slows it down it goes away . i agree with chris in the new trailer it sounds like the n sound is completely gone.
  • Ok you guys if you have MYSPACE you sould add http://www.myspace.com/ethanhaaswasright to your friends. he is putting bulletins up and has a blog that will start on august 1st.....

    looked at it one more time and i think i might of saw something near the explosion during the explosion theres a roar as soon as you can hear the roar and a pop theres seem to be a 2nd explosion or SOMETHING moving on the right side behind a building
  • yossarian
    it is most likely fake
  • Joel
    Well I'm not going to try and say anyones wrong, but it would be a lame movie if a giant lion was attacking NYC. Then again why would he say its alive? So I am thinking... if he says "its alive" then it has to be something you wouldn't think would be alive you know? Like if there was a giant statue that came alive I would scream "its alive!" but if I saw a giant monster I would already know its alive obviously. Sounds stupid, but if you think about it, its weird.
  • Adrenaline
    has anyone, you know....considered the fact that the movie just might be called.."18-12-08".... and one of the people in the trailer screams "I saw it, its a giant lion" http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/11808 heres the trailer, watch it again and listen...personally as soon as i heard "giant lion" all i could think of is rampage, the game for SNES
  • MrJoe83
    After watching the trailer many times in perfect quality, I'm convinced it's something completely original and has nothing to do with Ethan Haas and the line is, "It's a lion". But again, whatever happens on August 1st might change some of that.
  • MrJoe83
    That's analysis of the crappy bootleg trailer, and I still hear lion in that. Until he takes apart the new HD trailer, I still vote lion.
  • MrJoe83
    What proves it? The text overlay? Oh, now I'm convinced. The line before it is wrong too, she doesn't say, "What is he?", she says, "What is IT?".
  • MrJoe83
    Sorry, my idiot ears still hear lion even when he slows it down, get over it.

  • I GOT THIS FROM USER RAINBOWSATAN6-----------DEFINATELY THINK ITS CTHUHLU...WHICH I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF I went to the Ethan Haas myspace page http://www.myspace.com/ethanhaaswasright and in the “extended network” box in the upper right corner is 2 words in that cryptic language. The 2 words translated are cthuhlu pthagen wich means “cthuhlu waits/ dreams…… In the books he comunicates with ppl via dreams. Try this on. Maybe he was sending this Ethan Haas character dreams. Ethan starts ranting about the coming of cthuhlu, everyone thinks he’s crazy and then cthuhlu awakens. Thus, Ethan Haas was right. Anyone who has read H.P. Lovecraft knows that he focus’s more on the mental/ emotional status of his characters rather than giving a detailed description of the monster/ beast. So the POV from a camcorder makes absolute perfect sense. I know the myspace thing could have been created by anyone but damn if all signs don’t point towards cthuhlu. Children of the stars, ancient ones? Come on people
  • MrJoe83
    It's not a new teaser, it's the same exact thing. The "stop doing that" or whatever we heard on the steps before was probably from inside the theater, it was a bootleg after all.
  • Lexicon
    To me, it's glaringly obvious that it will be an original movie and not some remake or sequel... If it were, they would have put the title. They want to build up the suspense up until opening day. They want us walking in there so hyped up that we'll be on edge of our seat the whole film. I believe the film will be titled '1-18-08' What I would LIKE to see, based on all the evidence, is either A) An apocalypse film, where we witness the battle between heaven and hell on earth through the eyes of random camcorders... or B) a monster movie where we never truly 'know' what or why the monster is, but have it on screen. Even in LOST we never see the monster until the second season, and even then we have no idea what the hell it is and why it is. The idea that this is 'voltron' or 'gears of war' or just a remake, and we're going out and finding clues just to play a 'guess the remake movie' game, seems lame to me. It's original, and thus has limitless possibilities as of now and finding out its a remake ruins the magic. Plus its too early to tell. I can easily state a case that it will be 'The Super Mario Brothers' Movie. Its in new york, the plumbers are from Brooklyn. Bowser is coming to kill us, they reference japan alot...

    Everyone is saying that it would be terrible if this is a LOST movie. Now I am a HUGE Lost fan and I must say I would be kind of bummed if this was a lost film, but I would be intrigued as well. On the other hand, I would be pissed if this actually was Godzilla (and for everyone who is making hasty claims saying IT IS GODZILLA...shut up, you know nothing more than we know and stop acting like you do). Plus I don't remember anything from godzilla about people predicting his arrival or cryptic spheres with weird writing or any person named Ethan Haas talking about forming some group...So before you start making assumptions and practically forcing us to believe that this is a Godzilla movie, why don't you wait for more proof to come out. Sure it may sound like Godzilla, but it also sounds like the Lost monster. This could be ANYTHING...but I can't wait to find out what it really is.
  • Jeremy
    also...does anyone know any significance of ABZ 3293? Or did they just forget to edit out a license plate?
  • Adam
    Nothing to add to everything since everyone else seems to know more but I just wanted to point out what this movies ISN'T about. It's not a Lost movie, giant lost fan but Lost does not need a viral marketing flood to promote its movie, they would do much better by simply showing the black screen and having the Lost opening play. This is not a Voltron movie, while I was never a huge fan I'd question the storytelling ability if something like that was shown through the eyes of home video footage. Lastly and quite obviously (apparently not to some people), this is not a Godzilla movie. Nevermind the fact it's been played out, the rights aren't owned by Paramount. Have no idea what this movie is about but I know what it isn't.

    ok...3rd comment...I've been studying this trailer like a mad man and I downloaded it from http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/11808/hd/ here for my iPod...now maybe this is nothing, but if you look at the info in iTunes after you download it...it says "Release Date: Dec. 31, 1969" another clue maybe?

    Ever heard of the Eva book/movie called 2015? Apparently it was made with hanheld cameras (and it only cost 30 bucks) :)
  • Robot Lion
    I'm sorry, let me rephrase that. What I meant to say was apocalyptic movie in a friendly Eva manner. Go EVA!
  • Bruce
    Also, check out http://www.slusho.jp/ Very strange site, one of the characters in the teaser is wearing a shirt with that name and logo. The site was registered in May 2007 and just has a oddness about it. Check the history section. Very strange history for a slushy company.

    ok i think i found a link between J.J Abrams and Ethan Hass... Go to Youtube and type in Ethan Hass...watch the first message for clues. also checkout the Ethanhass.org and i am 100% these two are related closely.

    Done a bunch of research and have concluded that these websites are connecting in some "official" way with the Cloverfield trailer: ethanhaaswasright.com ethanhaaswaswrong.com parasitemovie.com sledriding.com tossinggames.com 1-18-08.com The main sites are 1-18-08 and parasitemovie. From what I gather, all the information out there claiming that the film is about a parasite is based entirely on the name of the website and it's connection with 1-18-08. parasite, however could also be para-site, i.e., alternate site. Just a thought. Anyway, my hypothesis is that both the Revelations faction and the Cthulhu faction are correct. It's easy enough to connect the awakening of Cthulhu with the end of the world. Cthulhu and the Old Ones rise from their slumber when the stars are right and then do battle with the Elder gods (e.g., Azazoth, Yog-Suggoth, etc.), though there are different ideas from post-lovecraft writers and Lovecraft never got into the details of what was supposed to happen. My guess is that some (students) read about Lovecraft and then discover that the Cthulhu Mythos is real and that the biblical prophecies of the end times meshes with that and the end of the world is about to begin. Cthulhu's back and boy is he (it?) pissed. As for the "lion" v. "alive" debate, even if someone said "it's a lion" it doesn't mean the person had any idea what he saw, especially half-drunk in the middle of the night through the smoke (plus, seeing Cthulhu at all is supposed to drive one insane). The characters on the ethanhaaswasright site seem to be a bastardized, cursive form of devanagari (Indian script) mixed with arabic script. but there are 26 characters and these are probably intended to match our alphabet.
  • Leonard
    I believe slusho.jp is most likely related and probably an "official" (i.e., paid for by Paramount) site. slusho is another code name for the cloverfield project and I believe it is a drink that was used on Lost or some other Abrams thing. Anyway, the history is obviously not true, but the connection with Ganu Yoshida bringing back a secret ingredient from the deepest depths of the ocean meshes with the parasite theory and the Cthulhu mythos (the Old Ones live in deep caverns under the oceans).

    I believe slusho.jp is most likely related and probably an "official" (i.e., paid for by Paramount) site. It's definitely not a real drink, that's for sure. slusho is another code name for the cloverfield project and I believe it is a drink that was used on Lost or some other Abrams thing. Anyway, the history is obviously not true, but the connection with Ganu Yoshida bringing back a secret ingredient from the deepest depths of the ocean meshes with the parasite theory and the Cthulhu mythos (the Old Ones live in deep caverns under the oceans). Plus the reference that "everyone that drinks slusho! tastes Noriko's dream, and becomes a small whale like Noriko..." sounds pretty ominous.
  • stig
    just on a little side note, i also think the slusho site is a little fishy (no pun intended), so when I found a link on the site that opened up my email client i sent 'satoshi@slusho.jp' an email. the response i got back was "Slusho! loves your mails!! You Can't Drink Just Six!!!". this seemed just plain silly and a dead end. Kind of comical though....
  • stig
    Check this site out. Official, or not? http://ethanhaasknows.livejournal.com/
  • CptOats
    If you search for Cthulhu on the internet you'll find that there's a movie slated to come out this year starring Tori Spelling so I don't think it's a Cthulhu movie.
  • stig
    alright found something interesting. still unconfirmed whether or not the site in post 446 is 'official', but on the July 9th journal entry there are tags at the bottom. one says "and lo the seven-headed serpent". well i googled this and came to this page: "http://www.lastdays.com/mysteries/babylon/3sevenmountains/seven.html" and more importantly almost at the bottom of that page, this quote: The characterization of Satan as a red dragon in chapter twelve of Revelation is followed in chapter thirteen with a similarly disturbing depiction of the Antichrist and his demonic helper Apollyon; the beast let out of the bottomless pit that empowers the Antichrist and his kingdom in the last days. Here we have a beast "rising up out of the sea having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name." The beast "was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority." It would seem that this is merely a metaphorical prophecy, but the language is interesting nonetheless. Still have doubts this is a apocalypse movie though.
  • Tom Huck
    Okay, after reading throughout this entire page of gibberish; I have realized that Cthulhu isn't totally out of the picture. I don't know anything about what the movie truly is about, seeing as the trailer itself could be the end of the movie. I am going to do more research tonight, and fight out more, seeing which topic all these clues point to the most. On a good note, hopefully it isn't godzilla, or voltron, although (not being a voltron fan or foe : unaware to the cartoon) I think the idea may be pretty good. I hope it is Cthulhu, because I have always wanted to see Lovecraft's work of it come onto the big screen. Even if it is a apocalyptic film, I will be satisfied, seeing as I'm a sucker for those genre of films. I really don't feel like doing research, but it'll be cool if I actually found something out that no one knew. I'll be satisfied with anything as long as the monster isn't some dumb friggin' black cloud. J.J. better not pull a sloppy move, or else, off with his goatse.
  • Robot Lion
    I agree with CptOats no Cthulhu its comes out in the fall of 07so lets get off that and find the right monster in this movie maybe its King Ghidorah he likes to blow stuff up
  • CHADtheINFAMOUS
    if you remember when the transformers trailer first came out it very similar to this. it was only of the mars rover footage. it didn't even say it was for transformers just the date of release. but this trailer for cloverfield was crazy. i got home and started searching for it..... btw transformers was the SICKIST movie ever.. i've seen it twice already and wouldn't mind seeing it again.
  • Tom Huck
    Okay, who the hell was the one who thought the guy said it was a lion? I'm sorry but He clearly says its alive, and sure people ask, "Why would he say it's alive?" You need to realize that even though it is dumb for him to say, 1) almost every monster movie has sumone say it's alive, shit, if its alive, then the monster is a flying baby lol. and u need to remember that when people are scared to death and feel like life is ending as we know it, then ur bound to say w/e comes to mind, i know if i saw sumthing huge, id be like, " IT WAS IT THE CLOWN! HE WANTS MONEY! SOMEONE NEEDS TO FEED HIM THE SLOP! GET THIS MAN SOME SLOP DROP SAMICHES!"
  • Tom Huck
    On a final note. I have discovered on my own research that the true monster is Randy Couture Head. He is known to float around the universe, and after defeating unicron he realized he had to destroy the next biggest head to his, THE STATUE OF LIBERTY! so he destroys it in the first five minutes of the movies, which is also the last five minutes, he goes and fights the wolfman, and then flies off to secret candy island.
  • CHADtheINFAMOUS
    i've seen on acouple of sites that it could be "gamera: The Guardian of the Universe" it hasn't been big in the U.S. but i guess it's a hit in japan, which is were rob is supose to be leaving to before the attack happens... "Gamaera is a giant turtle dragon thing that shots fire balls" look it up on google.
  • Tom Huck
    Last TimeI Checked, its not gamera , its actually the tmnt, theyre back and this time, theyre fighting ghostbusters for the crown jewels, i heard mr bean is in this movie, he has a role where he chops off a mans nose.

  • CrackV
    This is so sad, when this forum or whatever was new, everyone read all the comments, now, people just read the last one posted. If everyone just listened, they would realize that a plant guy in IMDB forums has revealed that the monster "Its not godzilla" through an anagram at the end of a post, that what he is doing is viral marketing by rearanging the bolded letters in his posts, and HE HAS REVEALED WHAT THE MONSTER IS!!!!!!!!!!!! Let me repeat that, MONSTER HAS BEEN REVEALED!!!!!!!!!!! It isnt godzilla, or cthulu, or voltron (which crazy numbnuts thought that up?) or King Gedora or whatever! ITs the freaking parasite! THe giant monster is the "Parent" that spawns all these human size parasites that feed off electricity and have a tendency to kill everything they see. By van's logs you can gather that they kill lots of his buddies, there are the followers of the Mezin who have known about the coming of the parasites for a long time and have prepared, and the Mezin and Vans people dont really see eye to eye. The parasites have culture, and are becoming more advanced as the days prior to the initial attack pass, developing a hierarchy and whatnot. Freddy, one of Vans dudes, manages to comunicate with one, but i think he gets killed later. Trust me, the source for this is real. This wasnt just some stupid fan, the guy had joined IMDB a couple weeks before the trailer was ever aired, and he was allways named "My_Name_Is_Van". So this guy is legit. Honest to god, i hate all these people coming on this forum and acting like they know for sure that its godzilla or cthulu, when it isnt either! Its all new, nothing remade. Maybe inspired by some things, but nowadays, what isnt inspired by something else? Seriously, just look at the facts and stop being biased and you will get more searching done and more questions answered! I pretty much already have the plot of this movie figured out already, just from paying attention.

    This is an intriguing cached link for the slusho.jp whois info: http://tinyurl.com/yp446z "Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer" is the legal firm that represents JJ / Bad Robot! But if you go to the current version of that site: http://tinyurl.com/295g6k you'll see that the law firm name has been replaced with Satoshi Kagashima, the slusho representative...
  • Flagg79
    I'm not buying the parasite crap. Also, you can forget about Voltron or EVA for God's sake. I think it is obvious that it's either Cthulu or an Apocolypse movie. And, for the LION vs. ALIVE debate. If (IF IF IF) he is saying "lion" it WILL BE an armageddon flick. There's a description of the last days somewhere in the Bible that describes angels as having several different faces at once, one of those faces being that of a lion. Also, as much as I want this to be a Cthulu movie, I really don't think it is. Here's a few clues that point in the direction I would LOVE for the movie to go in and it's completely unrelated to ANYTHING discussed yet. -somewhere above, the name Steve King was mentioned along with the Ethan Haas sites. -This movie supposedly started filming in February. -Abrams aquired the option rights for Stephen King's Dark Tower movie in early February. -The 9 on the chick's shirt is photoshopped in and half of her is being blocked. Could the 9 actually be a 19? (19 is prominent in The Dark Tower series) -Movie is coming out on 1-18. 1 + 18 = 19 All speculation and probably completely wrong, but I thought I'd throw it out there.
  • CrackV
    Yeah, i got the steve king thing up there. it was the name of a moderator of all the tossing games sites and stuff. The guy seems like he knows nothing at first, but now that more poeple are coming to his site he has given away that he is in on it. He seems to know things, but isnt talking. I also heard about the stephen king stuff, but he is also doing a movie about a book written by stephens kid too, so i dont think that its related to this movie. JJ Abrams is just getting into the movie biz, thats all. Now hes gettin tons of new movie deals, so this one is just itself, not one of the others. We cant go nuts every time we hear he's doing a movie and think its this one. Yeah, i hear ya on the 19 thing, but I think he may have done it to confuse people, Voltron is on the same day. I think it may be to make ppl think its VOltron. Guess we figured its not that by now. Pretty much, just Look for CrackV in this forum. Im not repeating myself again. Suffice it to say, I have found out what the parasite is for sure, and i have said it tons of times. Go to IMDB and search for the guy "my name is van" with underscores between each word. That will give some answers. Anyway, Ethan Haas may just be an unrelated ARG, so maybe we should focus on other things, like the lion or something. ANd yes, i know, it may not be lion. May be "Alive" or "Alien" (although nobody seems to think its alien).
  • Anteros
    Another hint that it could be an apocalyptic movie is the last line of the trailer. After all the mayhem we see unleashed in the trailer, the guy at the very end says, "Tonight's gonna be the best night ever!" After having watched the initial attack, that could easily be a hint that, "Tonight's gonna be the last night ever!"
  • Henry
    Hey, just for anyone running off the "My name is van" clues on IMDB, yeah, that was fake. Just a guy messing around.
  • Anteros
    From Ain't It Cool News (www.aintitcool.com) The web site that broke the story is now claiming to have received a short note from JJ Abrams. It follows: 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 This note implies that we're all wasting our time on the ARG known as Ethan Haas AND that we have only found ONE of the Cloverfield web sites.
  • Anteros
    Also, in addition to the quote from Matthew 12:36 I posted earlier, there's also this: From Revelation 18:08 "Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her." NIV And if you don't want to read through the whole thread again, here's Matthew 12:36 (12:36 being the time on the first pictire from 1-18-08): Matthew 12:36 "But I tell you that men will have to give account on the DAY OF JUDGMENT for every careless word they have spoken." NIV "Tonight's gonna be the LAST night ever!"
  • Grimlok626
    I was researching Google combining some of the things I saw in the backgrounds and on the fridge in their kitchen... Search for "mystery street AKM" and click on the second link, its a PDF file speaking of the Aeons of Maat and other documents ranging from the Jewish, Egyptian and other religious writings. On Page 14 of 43 the document talks about a creature referencing a book on Cthulhu... Maybe this is the Lovecraft, JJ Abrams movie, "Cthulhu" after all. Wikipedia search gives info on Cthulhu as a representation of pure evil, destruction and chaos given many different names and forms, and is sometimes preceded with "dead" as in "Dead Cthulhu" and in the last shot showing the statue of Liberty's head you see DEAD written on the back of the street sign... Just some things I noticed...add that in with the bible references from Anteros comments and you get an end of the world picture with a monster...sweet!!

  • lennit
    After reviewing the high quality 1-18-08 trailer on Apple's website (with meticulous use of the arrow keys to go frame by frame in the trailer) I noticed something The striking resemblance of the two women in the initial 1-18-08.com picture is just a coincidence. Yes, the two faces pieced together look amazingly the same, but if you watch the trailer, right before the Statue of Liberty's head hits the ground you can see both of the characters standing with Rob on the street. You see the darker skinned girl more, but you can see the lighter skinned one. You actually get a good view of the darker skinned girl as she looks up in this "what the hell/Oh my God!" type face when she sees something flying through the air (the Statue's head). Just before that you see the lighter skinned girl behind her for a little while. So yeah, both characters exist and are real.. Also the "We'll miss you Rob" sign really looks like it's made out of pictures. Obviously, this is a gathering of friends sending another friend off so perhaps those were pictures of him and friends throughout his stay in NYC. And yeah, looks like Rob picked the wrong night to leave....if only a day earlier. Along with all that I went through the trailer trying to see if any of the characters looked anything like the shadowy Van in EthanHaasWasRight.com. The only person that looks anywhere similar would be the "This is going to be the best night ever!" guy at the end of the trailer. But that's a LONG shot And I don't think Van is a military type guy. His clothing looks more like a grunge rocker than anything. It looks like he has two shirts on. A t-shirt underneath, but like a flannel shirt on top. Does anybody else see this? Now, a note from JJ Abrams saying that EthanHaas has no connection? Possible, but are we sure that's from JJ? And why would he tell us we're off track anyway? We'll find out for certain on 8-1-07 and we'll go from there I guess And CrackV, sorry, but the "my_name_is_van" guy is most likely just somebody faking it. Why would the guy sign up with that name anyway? Why not register with the name "van_mantra"? Who would have that before the site went live? There's something way too fishy there and just because his name is "my_name_is_van" and such doesn't make him legit. Doesn't entirely make it not real as well, but there's nothing we can go on that says he's flat out real without a doubt, though the doubt is really REALLY high for this character.
  • lennit
    http://www.slusho.jp/ looks like it can be legit. Only a few pages work right now and "more to come soon". If a character really was wearing a "Slusho" T-shirt in the trailer this could be a new lead! Can anybody run a WhoIs on this domain to find out if it's a Paramount site? I'll do so after work if nobody else has :)
  • Flagg79
    My ipod is also showing the film's release date as December 31, 1969. I did some digging and found that this was/used to be a unix problem. So either I-tunes is having this problem or JJ and co. are setting the date up like that to get us to investigate and come across the unix code problem. This actually might be the case because the unix problem was related to numbers, mainly zeros. Instead of confusing you myself, here's a link that explains the unix problem better. http://www.computing.net/unix/wwwboard/forum/6650.html And if you guys can use this to get more clues, good for you. Then again, it COULD just be a coincidence. Also...we're supposed to "know more" on August 1st, right? Anyone else catcth this? August 1st = 08/ 01 Movie is to be released January 18th, 2008. = 01/18 Didn't someone say something about reversing numbers found in the trailer in a previous post?

    Does anyone think when Rob comes into the room and the guy beside him takes a picture on his camera that the flash seems super emposed, maybe this photograph will have some significance later. On the breaking news the time is 12.37 AM - 1 minute after the 2 photographs on /www.1-18-08.com/. Dont know if this guy is jumping over the car or not but when the "head" hits the ground and rolls into the black jeep, there is a guy who looks as though he's coming down to either protect or attack the couple, i think you can see him running before the head hits the ground but the camera shot does linger on him.

    Actually, I think the time was 12:27 on the news broadcast (which then correlates with the 1st photo on the site being only 9 minutes later, when they were on the street looking in terror at whatever IT is) Also, the 67 degrees at 12:30AM in NYC on January 18th....seriously, that has to be a clue. It's not that warm in January, is it?!?!?! I was in Massachusetts during January and it was freezing, and this was Western Mass, and I was only about 2 hours from NYC. Does the water around Manhattan warm the city that much or is this weird? Maybe whatever IT is causes a lot of warmth to follow it? Or something? Geesh, how can we even be sure that this thing (or things) is even purposefully destroying NYC? Yeah, the first thing you think is Godzilla on a reckless rampage, but that's so cliche. Anyway, more things to think about! :)

    IGN Movies has learned that the "Untitled J.J. Abrams Project" may also be using the working title "Slusho," which hardcore fans of Abrams' Alias may remember as the Slurpee-type beverage that Vaughn offers to Sydney in the second episode of the series. We received an email this morning with the details of a public notice of filming posted last week in downtown Los Angeles that illuminates a few details about the production. The notice states that a Paramount Pictures movie using the name "Slusho" was filming last week in several downtown locations during the late afternoon to early morning hours. Here's a description of the scene: "Exterior dialogue. Driving scenes. Occasional traffic & pedestrian control. Camera & equipment on sidewalk, street and property. 200 extras. Military vehicles. Destruction aftermath. Weapons brandished. Emergency vehicles with flashing lights. Exterior dialogue on fire escape on 8th floor." Sounds like "Cloverfield" to us! So, what else is known about the top secret movie? Frequent Abrams collaborator Drew Goddard, a writer on Lost, Alias, Buffy, and Angel, penned the script. Keep tracking with IGN Movies as the mystery of "Cloverfield" unravels
  • MIKE
    UPDATE 7/10: Aargh. Those of us hoping for a Lovecraft tie-in have lost some foetid wind from our Innsmouth home port sails. Mr. J.J. Abrams himself dropped a line to Harry at Ain't It Cool News to let him (and thus everyone) know that we're totally off-base regarding the Ethan Haas puzzle sites - he (Abrams) states categorically that they "have nothing to do with us." Which means any reference to the Mad Arab Abdul Alhazred found in those solutions is irrelevant in regard to the Cloverfield film project. Which is not to say that Cthulhu will definitely not be rearing his tentacled head, but it does mean that there's absolutely no evidence indicating that he will. The good news comes when Abrams reveals that there are, indeed, web sites out there in cyburbia relating to the movie - but no one has (as far as he knows) found them yet or made the connection. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    also looking at the trailer some more, when the fireball hits the corner of the building east of the roof theyre on as the light comes through from the third fireball we can see that the fireball that hit the corner, did very little relative damage considering the speed it mustve been travelling, as well as leaving little more than black ashy material in a star shaped imapct splat. does this imply that the fireballs are sulphur based balls of fire. also why do the projectiles coming from the main firemass seem to explode at the height of the arc and then come barelling down? anyone tuning in to these details? or am i way overlooking it? please everyone your thoughts.

    Rob's reactions are telling I think, so is the high-jumping guy who seems to jump to push people out of the way. Also, Rob pushes the two girls back on the sidewalk before the statue's head is even visible coming towards them... no one else is moving to get clear when he starts. Also, some of the faces of the crowd are very calm, like the rich guy and his wife/date. Could be just bad acting by the extras, but it seems placed. Also, and believe me I know I'm being to picky here, when Rob starts to push the girls away, there is a man in a dark shirt across the street that appears to start heading towards Rob who has a "knowing" look on his face (for lack of a better term) before the camera pulls away. I'm probably reading wayyyy too much into this, but I can't help it. Plus I think the Slusho site and Rob's leaving to Japan are tied together. What does Rob do for a living, I wonder. Also, the photos on the 1-18-08 site rotate either way, depending on which way you push them. They move in 3 second intervals at what looks to be by 1 degree.
  • Bruce
    Hmm, okay, revise that on the photos. They seemed to be at 3 sec intervals, but using a stopwatch on the photo with Rob, the time interval between each tick seems to grow by, what may be, a second each tick. My timing isn't perfect so I may be off a bit, but there is certainly some time gain. Not sure about the other, testing in between work 😉

    I haven't seen anyone reference this so I thought I would through my 2 cents in. Minor detail, but in regards to the question of whether or not ethanhaaswasright.com site is related to 1-18-08... I just watched the trailer again and if you notice the very beginning when it show the Paramount and Bad Robot logos, they have the same camera effect (with the horizontal lines and sync distortion) as the videos from ethanhaaswasright.com. Then you see again at the end when the guy says "this is going to be the best night ever". Like I said, just my 2 cents, but could have done that to show relation between the two.

    Most of you know I believe this movie is totally original and I haven't been picking everything apart or making strong claims to what's going on although I have been following everything because I'm a huge LOST/Abrams fan and I love this kind of stuff. There is one thing that seems a little off to me. We're sitting here trying to figure out what's going on and what the monster is. Let's not forget, before all the crazy stuff happens, Rob is the central character. Maybe we're not paying enough attention to him. Knowing LOST as well as I do, I know not to overlook ANYTHING and something will be put in front of my eyes to distract me from what's really going on. Rob is leaving New York, and he's not going to Jersey or Florida or even LA, he's going to Japan. That's about as far away from New York as you can get. Also, to me, he seems a lot more scared and worried than anybody else at the party. He's the first to react when the lights come back on and he's not looking outside, maybe because he knows what's going on. When his friend tells him he should have left town earlier he reacts in a way that seems to say, "I thought I was getting out early." It looks like he's pushing people out of the way on the stairs, including the camera guy. On the street, he doesn't even look when we hear the roar, he just runs before anybody else starts running. Just something that seems odd to me, could be nothing but who knows, maybe we're not paying enough attention to Rob. And it is a surprise party meaning he probably didn't want any sort of party and wanted to get out of town quickly and quietly. millionmiles - I saw that guy too, don't know if he was jumping or was thrown. It's one hell of a jump though! jbone - I thought that as well about the debris exploding in mid-air. Is it really chance that it's coming after them...or maybe just coming after Rob? Lastly, the newscast is at 12:32am, 4 minutes before the picture.

    I also noticed that when you reload the page, the pictures move to a different spot on the page. Idk if that means anything but thats kinda of weird too.
  • Rafe
    That http://www.badrobot.com site is pretty locked down. Don't think anything is there. At first I thought that maybe it wasn't there official site but I couldn't find another website for them on google. I grabbed the entire site and it seems to only be the index.html with that Bad Robot image. Nothing too weird about it... the image is just 800x600, but there are 188 spaces in the whole page. Can't think of anything with that. I don't think it's anything, but I did think it was strange that a production company like his doesn't have an official site operational.

    WHY ALL U IDIOTS ARE FREAKING OUT? THIS FILM HAS GOZILLA ALL OVERIT
  • Rafe
    ^ OMG! djcaezar figured it out! HEY EVERYONE! We finally have our answer.... *ends his excitement* Read the thread, uh.. as you would say, IDIOT! Like many have said already if you have proof then bring it, otherwise what's the point in that post? Until we have hard proof of any theory, they all just remain that...theories. The point is to follow the clues and piece them together, not just go around blurting out the same thing 600 other people just said. It just gets old.
  • MIKE
    Hooray djcaezar figured it all out by his little old self. lets all quit while were ahead & let djcaezar explain to us how he came about nameing this movie "GOZILLA" as he likes to call it. & how he cracked this huge mystery of a title.
  • Shawn
    It's not Godzilla, a new Godzilla movie is being made as we speak. It's not Rampage, I'd like to think a 200 ft wolf-man is below JJ. It's not Voltron, another company owns the rights to it. It's not Transformers 2, too early for trailer let alone movie plus M Bay is making the 2nd not JJ. It's not Cthulhu, that movie has already been made, has a website, stars Tori Spelling. IMO what we have here is something new. The guys behind this are pretty original, and the only way we will find out more is to wait for someone who knows what the hell they are doing to figure out the clues. Also, I think 1-18-08 could be the date another trailer realeases. Just a thought. Also, the Eathan Haas sites are not associated with the movie.
  • sisu
    After the explosion, the fireballs that come out of it look like the beginning of Voltron cartoons with the 5 lions flying up to form Voltron. I don't think this is Voltron, but just a thought. I believe it's something new and original. How is it 63 degrees outside???
  • Flagg79
    If JJ isn't lying to us and the 1-18-08 site IS the only one found so far, I say everyone keep experimenting; the pictures move easily and, depending on where they are set, move in different ways. I just aligned both pictures up side by side, where the white border from both run into one another and both pictures starting moving away from one another, in opposite directions. I know this probably means nothing, but if everyone messes around with this thing like that, who know what will come up.
  • lennit
    Well, the movie DOES take place on 1-18-08. The timestamps on the photos show that.
  • Flagg79
    Some clues: As they are walking to the window to look out, there is a paddle-looking thing with ATM on it. Is this a fraternity or something? As they are rushing off of the roof, just before the big blast, you can see ACE 2004 written on the wall. The instant they make it to the street, there is a guy in front of the camera, his back turned. He's wearing a pinkish shirt. There is very obviously an "O" that was placed there in post-production, maybe photoshopped in for the sake of clues. Anyone else got anything like this?
  • Bruce
    The "O" on the man's back was a first clue, but there is also another one on his shirt on his right hip and it is moving in such a way with his shirt I would be hard pressed to believe it was done in post. Possible but I'm sort of doubting. Might still be a clue or just an ugly shirt :/. One thing that has me interested now is the girl at the beginning that says "Wise or Weiss (or something like that) is here, let's go." and we don't see her again in the trailer. Could be something there. Also, I beginning to believe that the set is not Rob's place, but someone else's.

    yeah, this definitely could be the year zero movie that trent reznor mentioned.
  • MrJoe83
    Just because it's supposed to come out on January 18th doesn't mean the movie takes place on January 18th so I wouldn't worry about HOW it's 63 degrees out but I do want to know WHY it's 63 degrees.
  • BigDawg
    I also forgot to mention that I'm a huge eva fan and an eva movie would be pretty tight
  • demon guy
    Ok, I only got up to about comment 400 and my eyes started killing me, so forgive me this was already mentioned. I was going over the HD version of the trailer frame by frame and at about 1:14 as they are running down the stairs there is a flash to their left. There appears to be a "demon" similar to the one in the girl(s) picture watching them run down the stairs. I asked a couple of people and they see it too. It looks like it has the same elongated face and some funny kind of ear things. The blue flame is on its head and the bald guy looks like he glances over at it. I'm going to push it a little further and say that I see the same "face" inverted as the "meteor" strikes the building behind them as the are exiting the roof at about 1:12 (about 4 frames after it impacts). As far as the alive/lion things goes, I hear lion. If this thing is an apocalyptic themed movie then a lion wouldn't be too far fetched. There is something in the book of Revelations about four living creatures sitting at the center of a throne. And before the throne was what looked like a sea of glass. (there's a lot of glass in Manhattan) It talks about flashes of lighting, rumbling and peals of thunder coming from the throne. Oh, and the first living creature was like a lion. It's somewhere around Rev. 4:4 to about 4:7 if anyone wants to post that up. Anyway, that's my two cents. Again, sorry if this was mentioned before. I'm just really tired and this trailer is driving me crazy.
  • MrJoe83
    Touche...damn, I just got burned...ok then, I live 2 hours from Manhattan and there was a day in early January this year when it was 70 degrees. The last couple of years it's been pretty warm through January in the northeast. Maybe Al Gore is on to something.
  • Rafe
    We already established that Slusho! is associated but I was looking at the trailer again and notice that no one replied to lennit (post 468) about if anyone was wearing a Slusho! shirt. The guy who says "maybe we can see something from the roof" is in fact wearing a Slusho! shirt. *find it a bit odd that lennit would say exactly wear to look for the Slusho! logo when there could be many different places to find it.... suspicious... maybe, maybe not* I'll post if I find more.
  • msmith40
    1) The newscaster mentions people calling in about "....a thunderous roaring sound..." So the only people who are calling in are those who've heard it? No eyewitnesses with cell-phones are calling in? 2) The line "It's alive! It's huge!" Well........what does that mean? I mean....if something is roaring....it must be alive, right? And to exclaim 'It's alive!" with such enthusiasm/panic implies that you've seen something that normally would not be alive. That's like saying: "OHMYGOD! THAT BARKING DOG IS ALIVE!!!" 3) (Kind of ties-in with point #1) Did this thing just pop-up suddenly? It just began roaring as soon as it appeared? I say this because the newscaster doesn't say "...a monster appeared suddenly...", or "...something big crawled out of the river..." Only that people are reporting a sound. "Good evening, everyone. Tonight's news.....people are calling in about that roaring sound........but so far we've only received calls from those who've heard it, but not seen what's causing it. In other news....it's going to be sunny tomorrow...." 4) What would cause such a huge explosion in downtown Manhattan? That fireball is hundreds of feet high. No refineries on Wall Street. 5) What the heck is 'Eva'....?
  • Chris
    There is tagging on the wall when they all run back inside, CR something, maybe A? Not sure if it means anything. Also, on the fridge, there is a sticker running sideways that says Exit Mystery St which seems very out of place. Near the end, when they are running on the street, there is a girl who crosses the scene and it looks as if her shirt says "Switzerland". Anyone else make that out? License plate of the black car near the end is ABZ 3293. Also, one very interesting thing is that on the backside of a street as Liberty's head is rolling by is tagged with what appears to be "Dead Dear" maybe? Anyone else see it? Oh, and the plaque on the wall has the letters AKM printed on them. Those are the things that I've found so far.
  • MrJoe83
    I believe she says, "You guys, he's here, let's go", and we do see her again, she's the girl that says, "Rob's awesome, I'm gonna miss him." Good call on it possibly not being Rob's place.

    Sorry, I meant to say on the backside of a street "sign" it says Dead Dear or something to that effect, frame 1:39. Might be nothing, but worth noting.
  • Rafe
    One thing I just thought of is that the second picture they added to 1-18-08.com was before the first picture. First one with the girls is at 12:36 A and the second one is at 12:01 A. We are moving backwards in our sequence of photos. Maybe there is a significance in this. We'll see if another photo appears and if so, if it was taken before 12:01 A. Maybe we are looking for something before the noises and explosions happened.
  • Rafe
    Maybe we are figuring out the storyline that precedes the movie.

    The trailer is stupid since it reveals nothing at all. Also, the homecam shooting of the trailer is lame, and if the whole movie is going to be like that, then that's even worse.

    A Call To Arms!! err.. Computers! All jobless, single geeks listen up! J J Abrams is LAUGHING at you! He and his team have set up secret websites all over the net. The clues to the URLS and ultimately the plot and name of the movie are in the trailer! You have to look very carefully and piece together the clues! I'll post as many clues as I can find below, but please let it be known that there is not a single person in the world (other than those associated with the project( that really know what's going on here. We need to work as a team to decipher these encoded clues. If we don't it is entirely possible that without our support the movie will be given a smaller budget, and/or possibly delayed or scrapped entirely. We must support this movie! Clues: Fireball shooting things into the air, and after they reach their apex they start to brighten up and/or seem to explode. The pictures on the website also hold clues. There is a hidden number "2" in one of the letters that make up "Good-bye Rob". There also is what appears to be either a golden "9" or "6" to the far right of the party picture, right next to a seemingly possessed woman/man?. I also believe i see either a letter "T" in the large "M" or a catholic cross. Also, Rob's eyes appear to be a dark black when he's taking that shot of alcohol. There is also a definite Japanese theme in the apartment. Sushi, buddahs, wall scrolls among other things. Someone is wearing a Slusho! T-shirt. There is a slusho website that has the same tracking code as the 1-18-08 site. The girl pictures is also a mystery. The girls appear to be twins or cut and pasted. Ones skin is lighter than the other. But if you look between them you can see the outline and face of what looks like a demon.You can clear see his face, body and if you look closely it seems as if you can see his long tail at the bottom. Very eerie. I also assume the day 1-18-08 has some significance. The party picture on the website was taken exactly one minute after midnight, and the subsequent photo of terror was taken exactly 35 minutes later. After the monsters "RAWRRR~!" You can clearly see a skate board and a piece of wood with the letters "AKM". Some people say they see the demon next to the asian man during the "you're his main dude" line, but sadly I don't see it. New York 1 News -- I think everyone knows that there is no such thing as a CHANNEL 1, could this be a cryptic number reference? If so we now have "2 - 9/6 - 1" to work with. Ok, a few more. There appears to be 7 "missiles" shot out of the fire ball, not 5 like the Voltron fanboys would have you believe. Finally, there seems to be something in the last frame, "This is going to be the best night ever!" though ironic, i do not fully believe that that scene is there for irony. If you look the the man's left, (your right) there appears to be something black in the background, almost shapeless and strange. Can anyone confirm this? It is really hard to freeze frame youtube videos because of their diminished quality. Did someone say there was an apple HD version of this trailer? Anyway I think if everyone who has an interest in this movie spends at least 15 minutes a day watching the trailer, going to the website, and following the clues that we can figure it out! Remember, people on the whole are dumb, but a person can be smart! jenovaproject7 at a o l dot com p.s I WISH TO GOD THAT IT'S LAVOS! But I just can't see Crono or Magus coming to NYC to save the day ; )

    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?
  • Also is it possible that instead of "D-DAY" "Zero Hour" or the "Apocalypse", that the movie's name is actually 1-18-08? In the spirit of 9-11? Who know, but I can't hardly care about the name of the movie, i just can't wait to see it! Please POST any and all clues, no matter how small or insignificant you think they are. I definitely think there is a numbers game going on here, with all the embed numbers in the pictures and trailer, not to mention the 'name' of the movie. We really need to find a Numerologist!
  • Chris
    Either it's entirely too late, or I'm on to something. Yes, crazy me...more Pokemon clues. 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!

    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.

    ethan haas--despite the alleged jja denial, there's something really strange going on with all the ethan haas related sites. I would not drop this in the can just yet; at least not before august 1. This blogger started in may (http://stayunderground.blogspot.com); ethanhaaswasright is very professional and didn't just come out to trick us about the film. Whatever it is took months to put together so it's either connected or it's about something unrelated yet equally interestng. At any rate, we will find out on august 1, 2007. parasitemovie.com has a countdown to the same date and time and it links to 1-18-08 which is more or less confirmed as an official cloverfield site. It was also up and running on july 7, which is a pretty fast move considering the trailer was only out for a couple days and 1-18-08, as far as anyone knows, only appeared on the 5th. Frankly, I strongly believe that the main ethan haas sites (parasitemovie, ethanhaaswasright, stayunderground, ethanhaaswaswrong, and tossinggames) are legit cloverfield and are at least intended to point in the cthulhu direction. slurpo--really weird stuff. the pokemon connection may be another red herring, like the fake new york address listed for the owner of 1-18-08. underwater goop that's made into mystery juice that happens to be advertised on a t-shirt worn by someone at the party (see post 513) is a clear connection. I have to consider this a legit site cloverfield along with 1-18-08 and somewhat more definite than the ethan haas angle. Also has vague, disturbing cthulhu-ish feel about it. tossinggames.com--most interesting to me among the ethan haas stuff. watch the videos, particularly the explosion on the top left. also the bottom right is a vh-1 classic; vh-1 is owned by paramount's parent company, viacom. possibly nothing, possibly something
  • Chris
    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? It just keeps going. This is a Pokemon movie, face it. I've laid out a hell of case for it in my last 20 posts. :)
  • LiCH
    I swear to god, If this movie has anything to do with POKEMON they are smart to tease us. Because what over 10 year old would go see a live action pokemon movie? God please help us all if it does indeed turn out to be pokecrap. My best guess so far is that this movie will be a 'in the moment' movie. Most good sci-fi or fantasy movies take place after a horrific, world-shattering event, this movie will be semi unique if it tells the story while it's happening, kind of like independence day or WoTW. I think it would be insanely cool if the story didn't revolve around 3,4,5 people, but many people with many heroes/victims ala 'Feast'. I think it would also be cool if instead of aliens/mutants/seamonsters that it would be more biblical in a sense. The end of the world from god's eyes. Watching your friends and family turn into demons from hell and such. Running for your lives even though you KNOW for a fact that you are going to die and the world is moments away from ending life on this planet so it could start anew. Deep stuff. Although if angels came down and saved the day or if 'the hand of god' smited all the demons at the end of the movie in order to let the 'few pure souls remain and repopulate' would be a total cop-out! I don't want this movie to have a happy ending. =) Although... It would be insanely COOL if ROB was going to Japan to be an EVA pilot! Kind of like Asuka did in the anime I suppose. Bah, email me if anyone wants to talk about this interesting movie.

    I know I've been pushing this Pokemon link, but it seems to have come full circle back to Cthulhu witth the Pokemon character being designed after Cthulhu. This MUST be a Cthulhu movie, and please not a Pokemon movie.

  • Chris
    After all of the links I've found, I'm 100% convinced it's either Pokemon or Cthulhu (hybrid of both) related. 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.
  • J-fight
    sounds like lich begins to describe dawn of the dead haha [awesome movie by the way]
  • Chris
    j-fight...read ALL my comments, and you'll see my point in regards to Pokemon. It's hard to deny the hard evidence I've discovered. Again, it may not BE Pokemon, but it's certainly pointing back to Cthulhu. This is the first "EVIDENCE" that's been provided. Not much speculation here.
  • stig
    how could this be an evangelion movie? that anime takes place in neo-tokyo, not new york, much less in the future and not present day. thats about as ridiculous as saying its going to be a gundam movie. as i have said before, it's either a cthulhu movie or something original.

    Once again, I am reading a whole lot of bullshit on this dumbass forum. Okay, my cousin has done some research. He has done a very good job. I originally went to the slusho site, and saw in history that there is a donkey underwater, wtf? The donkey (when clicked on) shows a blue oven mitt. My cousin decided to google blue oven mitt, leading him to the creators of the mitt, Orka Silicone. He then went to wiki and searced orcas, orcas are killer whales, and he went to cultural references, and saw that orcas were supposedly "sea monsters from hell" and originally called orcs. He proceeded to searching for orcs on wiki, which lead him to finding out that orcs are in the game Ragnarok (which is allegedly being made by the creator of the ethan haas site) he searched around and found that the god thor fights a beast during the end of the world, the beasts name is Jörmungandr , now search that name, and bingo, you have your middle world serpent, read on this link... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%B6rmungandr

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 just guessing but i don't think this movie has anything to do with rob. i think it is a extremely interesting insight on a persons life and what they were doing when the end of the world began. very interesting if this was the case. i'm not saying the movies not about rob but it seems creative if it wasnt

    Is this wishful thinking Chris? Are you a closet Poke-Fan? Ya i did enjoy DotD, but it didn't have the psychological horror value as the original did. What i meant was more of watching your best friend's body being possessed and morphing into a horned hell born demon. That would be sick IMHO. But I don't think anyone of us can say with certainty what is going on in this movie. All we really know is that an explosion erupts in the city, although it looks nothing like a ballistic missile attack nor an atomic/hydrogen bomb. The explosion looks relatively contained and almost like it has a certain purpose to it besides simple destruction. I really can't get enough of this site and all the conjecture. God help us all! Thousands of people are dying every day in this country of hunger and disease. American and Iraqi troops are getting blown to pieces everyday. We have a huge global warming problem. The american president is so corrupt and utterly retarded that america and the world may not recover for decades, if at all! And yet, we sit here and go on and on about a silly little movie... Hey i'm not complaining, just trying to put things in perspective if you find you can't get enough of this shit like myself.

    first of all i can admit that i may be in denial about it being a pokemon movie cause i just plain don't want to believe it. the last week of my life spent looking at this stuff just to find out its a pokemon movie? tih such a cool trailer> by jj abrams? it would be like having great sex with a chic and loving it then realizing it was a dude! please no pokemon
  • Chris
    Which is exactly why I think it's more likely a strong clue pointing to Cthulhu, as opposed to being directly about Pokemon. I'm mean, that's too coincidental to come full circle from slusho.com, to the creator of Pokemon, to a Pokemon character modeled after Cthulhu. Can that be a coincidence? I guess time will tell. :)

    LMFAO @ J-fight News Caster: "This just in! We are getting phone calls regarding a giant yellow which seems to be leaving a wake of terror in it's path! What's that? Breaking news! The creature seems to be speaking ... it's saying ... Pikachu! Oh god! We're all doomed!" Hey if you guys knew you were going to be trampled to death by a giant Pikachu what would you do in your last 2-3 minutes on earth? I think I'd rob BestBuy and steal all their PS3's. lol But seriously I would probably wanna call my girlfriend and my family, tell them I love them, then proceed to find the closest willing chick....

    I'm thinking that if you were going to put small illusions to other works you would do it to the original work, such as J P lovecraft's books, not a knock-off like pokemon. It is interesting, but do you really think that people would go see a pokemon movie the day after the first showing? The secret would be out and no one would go see it.

    Chris, your research sucks, you do know you are mixing Pokemon and DIGIMON, two TOTALLY different things bro. So stop your wishful thinking and get over it, there isn't going to be a live action pokemon movie, not now not EVER. But to the others, on the roof the graffiti says CRAZE. Also if you look at the side of the refrigerator after the guy walks buy saying "what will you do without me" you can see a piece of tape with the word "'something' mystery". Just putting my 2 cents in.

    Oh, and you guys should also read the Eva manga series, they are pretty damn awsome!
  • Jared06
    Ok, well this trailer definitely spooked me in some sort of way....Really eerie....Anyways, here's my theory of what the movie will be about: First off, I THINK that it MIGHT be about the end of the world. Yeah, I know...cliche, and done before. BUT, it would fit in with some theories that tie into the show Lost. Now, I don't believe this movie is tied in ANY way to Lost, but the TV show, for those who've watched it, refers fairly often to "saving the world", or the "end of the world." There's a fairly popular theory out there on the show Lost about there being multiple dimensions, and doomsday and such. Now, this would fit in with Abram's style, is all I'm saying. This trailer would make the most sense, in my opinion, if you took a biblical approach to it. The end of the world is prophesied in the book of Revelations, and describes the apocalypse in detail. It refers to multiple angels raining down "plagues", if you will, on the earth during the last days. Also, the Bible says that Jesus will come to take those who are christians to be with him, and after He does that, seven years of chaos will ensue. The taking of the christians COULD be a subtle connection to the friend who mentions "You shoulda left town a bit sooner!" Now, I'm probably wrong, and to be honest it's a flimsy theory at best, but this is a possibility, in my opinion.

    63 degrees in new york in january. maybe this party wasn't in new york but- get this - the party was in dc and then the monster grabbed the head and through it down to dc. haha just kidding obviously, i hope that wasn't a mess up on the movie makers part but that is confusing how its 63 degrees in winter in new york AT NIGHT! its been pretty warm up here in the new england area in winters but DAMN THATS WARM! go red sox
  • Leonard
    1. not voltron, evangelion, or godzilla. don't see the point in belaboring these theories any longer. 2. could be cthulhu, or at least a cthulhu/kraken-like tale, based upon the slurpo connection and the association with the ethan haas sites. I say association because the time stamp on the girls photo, 12:36 is the same time the parasitemovie claims cloverfield is to be revealed on august 1, which is the same time that van mantra and mezin source say their dealybob will be revealed (whatever it is). someone claiming to be jja may say there's no association, but someone else is trying damn hard to say there is. BTW, the tori spelling flick is a low-budget homoerotic indy film that has only an oblique relationship with the cthulhu mythos. Hardly an obstacle to filming something that's obviously entirely different. 3. very likely an endoftheworld association. the camcorder thing, to me, suggests that that's all that's left of humanity--a few vids of the destruction of the world. still plays into possible cthulhu or shall we say cthulhu-like demonic rising. the biblical verse associations are also compelling-all the dates and times on all the sites relate to biblical verses about the end times. only issue is whether jja would touch such an overtly religious theme. that's why it has to be a hybrid end-times/monster prophecy thing, whether or not cthulhu mythos is involved. I say we shall know on august 1, 2007. in the meantime, playing with the photos seems likely to yield something we haven't seen. also, there's likely to be more sites out there we haven't stumbled upon yet. serpo.org may be a good place to dig; doesn't seem like anyone's really excavated that to date, though it has an association with slurpo.
  • LiCH
    Does anyone have access to a FTP server that we can all upload screen shots to? I think that would be a great help. You could setup an anon account for us and give us upload privileges. I keep seeing new things every time i look at that trailer. For instance I just noticed some weird symbols in what appears to be a curtain to the left of that scruffy guy who is talking into the camera during the party. They do not look chinese/japanese, but what do I know? I can only recognize the katakana. Also, this Rob guy must be pretty rich to rent an apartment that size in Manhattan, unless he has roommates. Later after the power goes off everyone is staring out side the windows, and rob just puts his hand to his head in frustration/fear and looks the other way almost as if wondering what hes going to do with his 'advanced knowledge?' Someone mentioned that you can see "2004 ACE" when they are running toward the rooftop door, but there appears to be another word above it that you can make out. Also there is some graffiti along the rooftop wall, that looks like "Crank" or something similar, I was never good at reading graffiti. Can anyone help with that? Watching the trailer frame by frame is kinda of ruining the whole experience for me, half of the extras running down the street have either blase faces or smiles on their faces. Bah! You're getting paid to be in a movie, hence you are an actor, act like one! Interesting note: There is ONE WAY sign on the street, which are everywhere in NYC, but i found it funny that the masses are all running "The Wrong Way". Deeper meaning here anyone? BAH! If those street lights weren't there, I believe we maybe could see the creature. Watching Ms. Liberty's heading flying out of the darkness and into frame is totally creepy to me. That is definitely a metaphor. The head also appears to have a singular scratch along side the left cheek. The building the head hits has a "401" sign on it. The 'DEAD DEAR' sign looks like DEAD DEAD to me. Dead x 2? Double Trouble? Bah. A white rectangle appears in the 'produced by jj abrams' screen, could be a photoshop error/effect though. And again when 1-18-08 appears. This could be a stretch but the best clues may lie within the cast and credits. Maybe we can learn something about the movie by checking out the names at the end. The writer is Drew Goddard, and he apparently has a Vampire fetish, he has written buffy episodes and even vampire comic books. He may have a morbid imagination, and could possibly be into the whole demon/devil thing. Mutant Enemy productions: Of which Drew Goddard is apart has an interesting mascot... "The company's end-of-credits logo and mascot is an intentionally poorly animated demon cartoon figure crossing the screen from right to left and saying, "Grrr. Argghh."" --wikipedia That's all I got for now ... so tired...
  • MrJoe83
    I see what demon guy is talking about! (Post #512) The apple.com version doesn't have timecode but it's really easy to go frame by frame. I didn't see the face when the "meteor" hit, but in the stairwell, on the wall, it's clear as day! The face resembles the face in the girl(s) hair from the picture on the site. You can even see a body to go with it with four legs. It gets better...you can also see a tail and there's something surrounding the face...Big face, four legs, tail...you know what I'm trying to say. Also, in the same frame, there's something on the right of the same wall...to me, it looks like a side view of a lion sitting down. I'm not even gonna comment about the newest speculation going on here...I know anything is possible but that is ridiculous.
  • Holy crap! That serpo.org website is even more intriguing than 1-18-08! We know the movie is ... well a movie, but noone really knows for sure if that Serpo stuff really happened or not. I used to be obsessed with aliens and ufos, but i was a skeptical believer. A part of me thought that aliens were here, or that humans were founded by ancient astronauts and the like. But then I thought that in this day and age, a secret like that could not be kept for long, and that if they really wanted to show themselves they would land on the white house's front lawn... but that never happened >

    ok chris is not some pokemon or digimon movie that woudl be so fuckin retarded if it was no one wants to seea live pokemon movie it would be the dumbest thing ever and its NOT Cthulhu because the rumor came from ethan haas which IS NOT RELATED TO THE MOVIE AT ALLSO STOP BRINGING THE SITES UP
  • jbone
    congratulations, you fucking idiots, your wild thoeries about pokemon have ruined what was a serious look at what this campaign was leading us to, and a serious look at the clues and imagery in the trailer. a live action pokemon movie on handycams WOULD NOT APPEAL TO THE DEMO FOR THAT FUCKING SHOW!! i realize you 18 year old anime loving virgins had a wet dream when you read about dipshits theory, but get your head on straight. your all , and i mean ALL retarded if you believe that a few minor, stretched out theories support the chance that JJ would even touch that pitch "a live action NYC based shakycam pokemon movie". im finished with this board. have fun you goddam kids.
  • Steven G
    this might be dumb but did any1 see the close up shot of the sushi they had at the party at 0:30 i think its a clue that relates to the sea monster and slusho stuff plus the japan thing..
  • Flagg79
    Another thought/theory. first, keep in mind that this is JJ Abrams and that is Lost is any indication, this movie may not be anything like the trailer at all. Seeing the 63 degrees in January, along with news on Channel 1 and all of the seemingly obscure tagged references everywhere, I wonder... Maybe this New York isn't OUR New York. It could easily be another reality where it is common for programming to be on Channel 1, where it is 63 degrees in New York in January, where Slusho is a well known drink, where it's okay to make a techno mix of Wolfmother's song "woman" (at the party). I know this sounds dumb, but Abrams has admitted in interviews that he is a fan of Stephen King's Dark Tower series (duh, he's set to make the movie for it) and alternate versions of cities play a huge role in the series. I dunno...something to think about anyway.
  • CrackV
    Yeah, steven G is right. The japan thing, slusho thing, plus giant monster, plus the fact that the ingredient in slusho comes from bottom of the sea, that does hint allot towards big ol Gojira. But who knows, it would be kinda weird for a camcorder Godzilla movie, i mean, in the real movies all the shots are from the sky or tops of buildings or sumptin. Kinda hard to keep a plot when you cant have the main characters filming all the time. Sushi thing was just because the guy was leaving for japan, when u leave for a place like japan and u have a party, then u eat japanese food. Oh, and nick, if you ever re read this forum: Chill man, ppl come on and say stupid stuff. Earlier it was telletubies and the IT clown. On a last note, it aint Eva, or voltron, and probobly aint Godzilla. Cthulu movie already being made and it isnt this one. My thoughts are that its all new. Probably end of world. Leonard brought up good point. If its end of world, then all that humanity has left would be the camcorders, no news or whatnot. So the vids are the last explanation as to what ended it all. Slusho is just agrivating. There is nothing on the site, i even checked the site code for hidden stuff, nothing. REally, i think its a joke. They made it to see what we would do when we found it. Probably havin a good laugh about it. U notice, right after everyone found slusho, they codename the movie slusho? I really dont think slusho has any real secrets to shed, no useful ones at least.
  • Steven G
    can any1 tell me what that bottle behind the guy says at 1:45? curious to see if it could be a slusho ingredient
  • Name (required)
    All of these crack-pot theories are off, I sat down with J.J. Abrams myself. The monster is known as Explodisaurus. The monster is just initially a walking, moving, breathing explosion with the power to fire missles and Statue of Liberty peices out of its body. It first was created in the 1500's by the genius himself, Steven Hawking. During the time of his public release there were many disputes on how this potentially could help society. Unfortunately Steven was considered a witch and was burned, but luckily Explodisaurus managed to get away. He hid from the eye of man and God in seperate island with no settlements where New York was coincidentally built. On January 18, 2008 he breaks lose from his "slumber" where he yawns and rises. This yawn is misinterpreted as a roar and yell. Military forces brought in to defend New York and misunderstand Explodisaurus, but Rob understands. During his times in college he studied up on Explodinese where he knew that Explodisaurus was able to love and feel compassion. Rob quickly ran towards the "danger" to comfront the afraid creature. Thats all I can let you know from my conversation with J.J. Abrams, but just wait till AUgust when more information is released.
  • Steven G
    also theres an orange paper on the right by the computer at 0:08 looks like a 3d animation prototype can any1 make it out?
  • CrackV
    I went through the HD trailer over and over again, nothing that hasnt been mentioned was found except for "ace 2004" at 1:12, thats about it. All that other stuff, its just set dec. I mean, we cant dig into everything, can we? Not everything is meaningful. I mean, we cant go nuts and think that Budweiser is involved if we see a bud beer, can we? (One note tho, just noticed, Rob has a bad ass xbox 360 set up goin on) That, and right after liberty stops movin u can see "Dead Dead" or dead something written on back of street sign. The paper by comp was just a pic, its nothing. A statue or sumptin. At teh very end tho, right before "produced by JJ Abrams" blacks out and it gets fuzzy, you can see blurry writing that is supposedly just jj abrams fuzzy, but has OB in it, or maybe 08, I cant tell. Maybe somebody else can find out. Anyway, check ACE 2004.

    what lead? that the maker of pokemon is involved with slusho? wow so its a pokemon now? god forbid the maker of pokemon decides to be involved in something else especially after poikemon has pretty much run its course and died out
  • groggo
    few things, NOT POKEMAN, dont be dumb ITS ORIGINAL, NOT A REMAKE next, about the trailer: the spraypaint on the sign didnt paint the post its on, meaning the paint on the sign is real deal NYC grafitti and the sign was placed either on a replacement post, or a different part of the city. thats insignificant. rob for sure knows something nobody else does (nod to the actor, selling it) the fireballs split into at least 3 smaller ones at the apex. because 3 came down in one ally beside the building, and didnt lose speed. also theyre not that destructive. very confusing. whats with the 401 sign? can anyone get down to that street and get some snaps? or was it a set? LETS FIND THE REST OF THE SITES!!! im no braniac im just keen to little details. Thoughts
  • FRANKLIN
    i'm sorry but i don't think rob is a big part in this movie at all. if he is then its just showing whats going through his point just to have a point of view not because he knows more than anyone else
  • FRANKLIN
    second of all i am gonna take it as you just weren't thinging when you said go to the street and take pics. OF COURSE IT WAS A SET! come on man you think they would have filmed that out in the streets of new york or where ever they would have? {the film can, in fact, take place but not be filmed in new york. they would just have to work around some difficulties}
  • groggo
    i know i thought id ask anyways, just thinking of the budget.
  • steven g
    they could film in ny all they need is a permit and police barricades
  • lennit
    I agree with Franklin, they have to be using a set. If it's true that the principle photography hasn't been completed yet then we can go find out more by finding them filming in NYC! I don't think they'd like that and all. Also, I'm not sure if this is legit, but here's another site http://www.abz3293.com/ The owner of the site supposedly posted "I'm looking for the owner of an SUV with NYC plates abz 3293" on June 10th, but that can easily be faked in a database. Plus there are links to normal sites (similar to parasitemovie.com), but they're "sites people came from" and change constantly. I really don't trust this site but I'm putting it here for others to look at. The biggest thing that tells me it's not associated is....it doesn't have Google Analytics/Urchin linked up. If you look at 1-18-08.com and slusho.jp's source you'll see they are very minimalistic and they both have Urchin linked in from google. (search for urchin.js in the source). This new site doesn't have that. (neither do the Ethan Haas sites so if JJ Abram's note was correct about how Ethan Haas is not connected to "cloverfield" then that makes a lot of sense) Thoughts?
  • sisu
    After the first major explosion that you see on the trailer, the fireballs that land by them look like they're coming from somewhere other than that explosion. From the angle, it looks like they came from the opposite end. Must be more than one monster or thing going on there.
  • FRANKLIN
    sisu- toatally awesome thoght, that would be cool if there were more than one but not like hundreds of them maybe like five of what ever they are steven g - i'm not saying that they aren't gonna be filming in ny i'm just saying that the trailer was not filmed in ny and its possible that they might a great deal of it on a set if not all of it

    J-fight... first off, i never said it would be pokemon... as i said before i strongly wouldn't like that. Secondly, you're right... the creator of pokemon could just decide to get involved in another project in his life, but its one thing to start something new... and another to start something new and still incorporate your past work into it. I don't think that it's a pokemon movie, but personally i think some people are just being ridiculous to ignore possible clues like this. No one really has a logical reason as to why we shouldn't be paying any attention to this... some people are just being pansies and can only seem to see 5 feet in front of their face. Now, wouldn't you feel like an idiot if a month or two from now you realize that the pokemon clue's were just meant to be bread crumbs leading us to our answer.

    SLUSHO is the name of the Production Company that was formed to make this movie. If you have even driven around LA, you will always see the yellow production signs, for different things that are bieng filmed. Most of the time, they are in code or they have diffrent anagrams or initials. The signs that read SLUSHO are assossiated with this film.
  • Chris
    They are my clues, and here they are: Hear me out...it's either Pokemon (yes, you read that correctly) or Cthulhu. Probably Cthulhu, but 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." 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 (not so much different than Pokemon) 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 a blog that the monster was a sea monster? 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. It's stretch, but lots of coincidences here. If this is not the case, I challenge someone to find that many clues from Slusho.com. :)

    Pokemon? please. That is a 100% kids thing and this movie was by no means something a kid would watch. Nor would an adult watch Pokemon, ever ever ever. Slusho is a website http://www.slusho.jp that came out just before this trailer and transformers came out. It is still more than half under construction and is said to give clues to the monster which I still feel is the Cthulhu, not some Pokemon based version. The website came to be from the friend in the trailer who asks "think we can see anything on the roof". He is wearing a shirt that has the Slusho logo and name on it. It is not godzilla, it is not voltron, and it sure as hell ain't pokemon or pokemon based as no adult would even care a little bit nor would JJ ever be associated with pokemon.
  • Leonard
    Couple additional thoughts. Let's assume for the sake of argument that Ethan Haas stuff is unrelated, at least in an official way--obviously they are related now, whether jja intended them to be or even has any idea who's behind the ethan haas stuff and why the creator(s) latched onto the Cloverfield project. But they did connect with cloverfield and did it pretty darn quick (i'm talking about what I'll call the "official" ethan haas sites, if that suits you--tossinggames, sledriding, parasitemovie, ethanhaaswasright, etc.). This, despite the fact that there is no question whatsoever that the arg on ethanhaaswasright took considerable time to develop. So was this cloverfield preview just an amazing opportunity for them to sticky their product to--whatever it will be? Hardly sounds like a business plan. Besides, viral marketing is one thing; giving another commercial enterprise, let alone a potential competitor a free ride on your own marketing, or infringing on a copyright (e.g., 1-18-08; "cloverfield project", etc.) is a definite negatory. But paramount/viacom has not had these sites removed (though they did have the ethanhaaswasright vid initially removed from youtube before most people started to see a connection between that and 1-18-08). Plus, I implore you to look at the vids on tossinggames.com. Thus, I still go with the ethan haas connection. But what if there isn't--obviously, the ethan haas guys intended to use cloverfield as cover for something, but what? A game that paramount would issue a cease and desist for the minute it's released? But then I got to thinking (bad idea)... What if Ethan Haas really doesn't have anything to do with cloverfield, but isn't fake? What if there is no alleged rpg in the making (no one, to date, has any evidence of this at all--not even a link that i've seen), and they have no product, nothing to sell in the end? What if they're serious about the end of the world the site predicts and some spectacular, cataclysmic event that will take place on August 1, 2007. Could it all be a cover for something that the "Mad Arab" wants to happen or worse, can make happen? I guess we'll see.

    leonard if you are suggesting that ethan haas is a legit....something....and there really is an underground predicting and preparing to fight off the end of the world....then give some of whatever you are smoking

    what i am looking forward to is the day when we can look back knowing all the facts and say "wow that was a dumb idea" and "rememeber when we thoguhtthis? and look at it now.man were we off" i for one can't wait til we have all the facts
  • HarleyDude
    "We have a huge global warming problem." LOL! Ummm no we don't. It's a myth. Scientifically unproven, not even close actually. Quit being a sheeple.
  • lennit
    HarleyDude, I really really hope that you're joking, because all the facts of global warming came from science, so thus, scientifically proven. But that's far from the point... unless this movie is about global warming. And WE, the PEOPLE are parasites of the Earth and the Earth is fighting back? hahahaha....strange, but we don't have any other solid thing to go from right now so whatever! :) The warm January NYC night would be explained through a Global Warming motif in the movie, but who knows?

    so what your saying is theres only 1 Satoshi in the entire world than.........is that what your theory is based on?
  • brin
    the temperature has alot more to do with this than we know. nobody in the streets has any winter jackets on? we cant assume EVERYONE on the streets came quickly from inside. and i dont know about NY but im from Toronto, climate almost identical to NY and no goddam way are we not bundled up in min January. we have to think outside the box but inside of reason here form now on. but we wont, we'll just keep jerking off about pokemon and motherfuckin digimon. can we ban these little nerds yet?
  • Leonard
    I didn't say I believed it; but it's interesting to think about while the cloverfield preview theories seem to be stuck in a rut. If Ethan Haas is not part of Cloverfield, and has only an accidental association that makes it all the more interesting to me. At the least, it's a hell of an example of synchronicity. Viral marketing provides a perfect disinformation cover for something real. Sherlock Holmes would read the papers everyday, particularly the classifieds, to find coded messages by and between Moriarty's minions--viral marketing is just another form of using disinformation to hide the truth that's out there. What, you think terrorists send messages to eachother through the mail or fedex? Avoid suspicion by doing the obvious; it's easier to flood the net with disinformation than to try to hide the real thing. Suppose that real mad arab, osama, was working on something big this summer--which is always a possibility--and they needed to get the message out to their cells in the US (believed to be in the hundreds, btw) but couldn't attract the attention of the authori-tays the way the usual cellphone calls or international calls work. You're waiting for some opportunity, then along comes this cloverfield viral marketing campaign. Bingo--and it even has explosions and stuff. Perfect--no one would ever believe anything associated with it was real. It's all just marketing for a movie, or a game, or whatever. Just silly kids stuff, right; pure geeks-ville. You tell your followers what the date is, lead them to more coded messages, then August 1 comes along and....
  • groggo
    okay so theyre on broadway, between canal st and grand. and the view south is completely false. so its a set and now we can tell its a fictional representation of NY. what now?
  • M
    Someday you may write I shall never forget that hideous summer sixteen years ago, when like a noxious afrite from the halls of Eblis viral marketing stalked leeringly through the internet. All who read have caught the bug. It plagues you like a parasite. Boring into you skull spurred by fear. After all... The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

    oh nvm i think its not showing cuz i dont have the latest flash or w/e on the computer im using and u think any one could google map where the set in la is that would be awesome
  • Ryan
    Alright I certainly heard a person in the preview say ""I saw it... it's a lion" "It's HUGE!" ... what would that mean?
  • FRANKLIN
    google map pictures are extremely dated man they don't move either m get your emo ass out of here
  • Vonz
    I would definately recommend looking at the google map groggo posted. If you zoom in you can see the 401 Broadway sign on top of the building. Also the statue of liberty's head is nearly a straight shot from this location. Whatever chucked it has quite an arm.
  • FRANKLIN
    we have been over this a hundred times. i would like to say right now it definitely does SOUND like lion but he does not say lion
  • FRANKLIN
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uHbwPF5yJk&mode=related&search= this guy ran a audio analysis and made a strong case for him saying "I SAW IT! ITS ALIVE, ITS HUGE!" he talks about some pictures in the beginning then runs the analysis and you can hear him say ALIVE.
  • Rafe
    based on the google map... looking at where they were on Broadway and where Liberty Island is, the SOL head couldn't have come directly from Liberty Island. In watching the trailer the head looks like its directly in-line with Broadway. Maybe its coming more from like Governors Island. I don't know.
  • FRANKLIN
    Rafe check this stuff out i think he uses google map to find out some of the angles the statue of libertys head could have been thrown from but i hope it helps you out a little though it may just confuse you more http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jc5HoevulDI&mode=user&search=

  • Rafe
    Yes, that's not real either... that one looks pretty obvious to me. Looks like some kid in his bedroom. Does anyone know when the first photo was released on 1-18-08.com and then when the second was released?
  • HarleyDude
    "I really really hope that you're joking, because all the facts of global warming came from science, so thus, scientifically proven. But that's far from the point…" Actually, the "facts" that support man-made global warming are outnumbered in great quantity by the scientific research that refutes it. But sheeple will listen to corrupt politicians and idiot rock stars more than they will facts coming by experts from all around the globe. Back to the movie... Man I hope this movie is a gritty rough representation of how mankind reacts when faced with something so powerful, so maligned, that humans finally understand their true insignificance in the universe. Nothing to save the day as we are set upon by something so evil we can't do anything but run & hide. Cthulhu Rises...
  • Flagg79
    There's no clear way to tell if the head was THROWN. With all of thiose explosions, it could have very well been blown off and sent sailing in that direction. Also, I know that the roar of the creature or monster or whatever sort of messes this theory up....but what if that first explosion was something "crashing" to Earth and the fireballs that are projected into the sky come from it? That is, what if something BIG crashed into Earth and then sent "drones" airborne upon crashing?
  • The truth
    After having dinner with Double J (J.J. Abrams) we discussed the cloverfield project. Here is the true story. Rob was trying to leave town. To get out before it happened. Upon returning to his apartment his friends gave him an inpromptu surprise going away party. This was not in the plan. Nothing goes according to plan. With the party going well he forgets about his problem. The problem that will engulf the world in darkness and terror. The roar. He remembers he forgot. All of this is because of him. His pursuit of terror. As they run to the roof top to see what is going on Rob knows already. His pet. His hamster needs to feed. Mutated by the twisted mind of Rob an his hungry for hamster meat he created a monster. He created the Black Hamster. And it goes on. I beat the hell out of Double j.
  • leonard
    Where's all this stuff about 401 Broadway coming from? Anyway, I have no idea why the head couldn't come from Liberty Island; it's just short of three miles away. For a demon or monster, no big whoop; and who says they can't throw curves and sliders? Also, movies made on location almost never are accurate because they film for the specific settings they want for specific scenes. It's routine to show someone walking by a park, turning a corner, and being on a street ten blocks away which only residents (and obsessed geekazoids) would notice. I don't think the alleged Broadway location means anything. It's alive, it's huge: what's "alive" is the cloud of smoke and fire, I think. "M" is onto something. This thing is a parasite itself; as was intended. 1-18-08.com; the lettering on the banner in the party pic says "we'll miss you" but with parts of letters obscured as they are, it looks like "hell mass". This could be some satanic thing, or of course, nothing at all.
  • leonard
    Re: Ethan Haas (again). No one has explained away the fact that Paramount pictures demanded that youtube take down the ethan haas glyph-vids, because they had the copyrights to those vids (confirmed). This establishes a relationship between Haas stuff and Paramount, as does the existence of the VH1 video on tossinggames.com. ethanhaaswasright apparently came out in some form on June 28, according to a wiki. That's the day before the advance screening of TF that had the first view of the trailer. What more evidence is needed that there is a genuine relationship between Haas stuff and Cloverfield, whatever that relationship might be? Not a single person has proven that jja has expressly denied the Haas stuff; everyone just repeats what aic claimed was an email from the man himself. Bunk. Don't you get it? Ethanhaaswasright, ethanhaaswasrong.

    idk if its just my computer being gay but the pics dont show up on http://www.1-18-08.com anymore
  • bob
    Interesting discussion now on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Cloverfield. Those wiki guys are ready to explode because the wiki policy can't deal with the nature of viral marketing. The whole point is that nothing is verifiable until the product arrives or the owner claims ownership--disclaimers mean nothing.
  • Daniel
    has anyone gone through the whole ethanhaaswasright experience? no doubt this is all connected, i need help, im on the second puzzle and word is theres a total of five...i think if we finish this, something interesting from this will be learned. ill be on this site from time to time so please if you know anything leave a comment, ill be checking every so offten.
  • Daniel--- I finished all of the puzzles...the 2nd one you have to look to the right star and you will see symbols which is the alphabet...you have to spell HAAS in the globe thing. it will unlock and take you to the next level.... if you need help with the others let me know...they are hard
  • Daniel
    ok after completeing the first puzzle, i was revealed a video saying that i would be tested to see if i could be told more of what was neccery to be done, then i was told we have up til august first and that i was supposed to tell others to come to this place so that you could help and be "one of of us" as the guy claims in the mysterious video, is anyone out there? who knows of this?
  • Rafe
    Yes, many people have completed it. I think it gives you a code that you are to use when you go back to the site on Aug. 1. You could just google ethan haas was right walkthough. If i remember correctly you have to spell out HAAS. HA on the two vertical rotating ones and AS on the ring around the sphere.
  • Rafe
    ok, dude...wait. I don't you want to keep posting on this site concerning ethan haas. Keep it up and I'm sure you will get reamed.
  • Cloverfield fan
    I think that it is War of the Worlds 2 i am probably wrong but the preview kind of gives us clues. the alien robot in war of the worlds kinda looks like a parasite, and the tripod has the same exact moan as the one in the trailer. also in the trailer right after the monsters moan the power cuts off the same thing happens in War of the Worlds and the laser beams that come from the tripod can make stuff blow up so maby it shot a gas station and made that huge explosion and maybe it wanted to start destroying stuff and finally chopped of the statue of liberty's head and one more clue is when the tripod starts evaporating people this guy starts video taping the tripod and he gets evaporatd and drops it but then again i might be wrong but my hopes are always up for some tipe of giant destructive thingy P.S i am pretty sure you all saw this but the liberty head is on fire flies up hits the skyscraper and the fire goes out and the head is hard to see from this point it comes down hits the street and starts bouncing and rolling and then the preview ends.
  • Shawn
    OK!!! Please listen to me this time cause this has gotten way out of hand. There is no way in Heaven or Hell that this is a Pokemon/Digimon movie. JJ would end up being the laughing stock of the world. Not to mention the arguments supporting this is coming from a website that has not even been confirmed as one of the offical sites of the movie. As I said in my earlier post which alot of people must have skiped over, it is NOT Godzilla! Why? Because a Godzilla movie is already in production by TOHO in Japan called Godzilla 3-D. The release date is still to be announced. I really don't see two different companies realeasing a Godzilla Movie in the same year. It is NOT Cthulhu. That movie has already wraped up and is waiting to be realeased. It has Tori Spelling in it, the website is "http://www.cthulhuthemovie.com/", and it's about a cult that tries to awaken Cthulhu or some shit like that. It's NOT Voltron. Another company owns the rights to Voltron. I can't remember the name but it sure as hell isn't Bad Robot or Paramount. It's not Evangelion. The company that owns it is still looking for someone to make the live action movie, plus it has only been partly financed as of yet. Also they are making 4 animated Evan movies to realease in the meantime. And my last argument, which should cover ALL of these is this. JJ has already said that this is a Giant MONSTER movie shot with handheld cameras so that the movie is in the POV of the small group of people that are in the trailer. There is now way that a Voltron, Cthulhu, or Evan. movie would be done this way cause you won't be seeing alot of the monster prob ubtill the end, and ALOT of people that will be watching this movie have no idea what these things are. A Voltron/Evan/Cthulhu movie would have to show origin, set up characters and story, etc. This movie is something NEW and instead of going around and around about Pokemon and Voltron we need to figure out what it's really about. However, no matter what ANYONE says, the Godzilla fanboys will swear it's Godzilla and the Voltron fanboys will swear it's Voltron and so on and so on.

    IM OVER IT!!, THERE IS WAY TOO MUCH CONFUSION ON WHAT THIS WILL BE, MANY ARE ASUMEING MANY TITLES TO GIVE THIS UNAMED MOVE, I AM WILLING TO BET THAT WE ARE ALL GOING TO BE WRONG @ THE END & ALL THIS GUESSING WILL BE POINTLESS. IM SURE MANY OF US HAVE BEEN LEAD TO VISIT MANY SITES & THEN GET AN END RESULT THAT IT LEADS TO SOMETHING ELSE, SO ON & SO ON. SO LETS PALY OUR CARDS RIGHT. USE WHAT WE ALREADY KNOW. & NOT BE LEAD TO SOMETHING ELSE. I MEAN C'MON PEOPLE, SERIOUSLY. JUST TAKE A LOOK @ ALL THE ABOVE COMMENTS, IS THERE ANY RELEVANCE OR TIES TO THIS UNAMED MOVIE THAT WE HAVE NOT LOOKED @ ALREADY? WHY DONT WE LET J.J. FILL US IN WITH MORE CLUES, & MAKE IT MORE INTRESTING. OR BETTER YET GET MEDIA INVOLVED WITH ALL THIS GOSSIP & RESEARCH THAT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE DOING TOWARDS THIS MOVIE DONT YOU THINK ITS TIME WE START SEEING MORE RESULTS INSTEAD OF MISLEADING OPINIONS & WEBSITES?..I KNOW I'M OVER IT.

    Just read this on Cinematical.com: "Some folks immediately speculated that Stephen King's The Dark Tower was secretly filming under the name Cloverfield (you'll remember that J.J. Abrams became involved in that adaptation not long ago) -- one guy even started a blog claiming to be an actor in The Dark Tower, and confirmed that it was being filmed under the name Cloverfield. Well that was bogus; King's own assistant even commented here telling us so." So much for the Dark Tower idea. The link is http://www.cinematical.com/2007/06/30/j-j-abrams-and-the-cloverfield-debate/

    Sweet, yeah definitely I change my mind on what that guy said. Hmmm well.. people it's time we just waited and stopped trying to figure out something we do not know enough information about. We know it's a Big Monster movie, we know it's a movie using just a video recorder. Big woop... let's wait for it. Stop making hype where hype not need be. Sure it's been a big secret, and we probably don't have anything on it due to it just being video recorded. Just sit and wait until August 1st, then let the hype go back up.

  • Chris
    I appreciate all the love, and hate, I've received in regards to my theory that the Pokemon stuff points Cthulhu. Let me reiterate, I did NOT EVER mean to say that this movie IS Pokemon. I thought that it was a HUGE coincidence that all the evidence that I previously introduced led me to Cthulhu. Does no one else find that interesting? Is it so far fetched? I mean, look at the goofy a** slusho.com site. It's clearly childish; there are two kids, a freakin underwater donkey thinking about a mitt, and a fish thinking about cheese. If that's not goofier than me trying to find "actual" clues that lead somewhere and make sense, no matter how loosely coupled they might be, then I challenge someone else to find something else of substance. Not one other person on the net from what I can find has found ANY clues from the slusho.com site. It's confirmed that the site is indeed related, but yet everyone wants to go back to the video and 1-18-08.com for more clues. Why would there be more than one clue from each source? Think about it. It's a progression, move forward! The trailer is shown, 1-18-08 is in the trailer. Naturally we all visit the site, easy enough. Two pictures show up on the site, one of the individuals in the photos just so happens to be the same guy that's wearing the Slusho shirt. Hmm...go figure. Progressing forward, I decide to look further into the Slusho site. Trust me, I Googled every freakin word on the site. That's when I came across the email link with the odd name of Satoshi. Google that name, and as they say...the rest is history. Or, the love for me on this wonderful post began. :) If you'd like to reconsider my observations, you may revisit post #593 for a synopsis of my findings. I may be completely wrong about this, but as a few have stated, it's the first findings that have moved us forward. [ Think ] outside the box.

    Find Satoshi The UK-based game company, Mind Candy, is currently testing the theory by distributing a picture of a Japanese man named Satoshi.

    First, the spy does confirm that the film is currently being shot in downtown Los Angeles under the name "Slusho." And about that name, the spy says: "The ID tags for the shoot on the trucks say "Slusho: You can't eat more than 6" and a drawing of a slurpee-like drink." I'm not sure whether that has something to do with the film, or if it's there to throw people off, but it is one of the stranger taglines I've ever seen. Additionally, the spy points out a few interesting tidbits regarding the trailer we all watched prior to Transformers and the Godzilla rumor everyone keeps talking up. "On a take in the scene you all saw (the trailer) at + 30 seconds after impact movie time, just a couple of us were told by Mr Reeves that we are seeing a giant foot stomp down (this is at the point where the tower explodes). Not Godzilla, but it is interesting..." I wish they would've further explained how they know it's not Godzilla (he had feet, right?), but if this person is to be believed, then we can cross off all Godzilla talk for the time being. source: http://www.cinematical.com/2007/07/09/inside-the-cloverfield-production-a-spy-speaks-out/
  • Nuhfer
    Ok guys, Ive had it. Here are the straight up facts, and anyone from this point on that tries to argue with it is a fricken idiot. 1) IT IS NOT POKEMON. THE END. 2) It is not cthulhu, the rights are owned by a totally different company, check out the site here http://www.cthulhuthemovie.com 3) It is not Voltron, the voltron rights are currently owned, and producer Mark Gordon will be doing it, check it out here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltron#Film_adaptation 4) It is not Eva, someone said it to be funny, then all the fanboys swooned and try to convince themselves it is. 5. Finally Ethan Haas sites are NOT RELATED. First off you have the official say so from JJ himself at http://www.aintitcool.com/node/33261 Next up is that fact, that you can find out that the Ethan Haas stuff is most likely related to a new game by MindStorm Labs entitled Alpha Omega. You can check out the game info here: http://www.mindstormlabs.com/products.html Now everyone brings up the fact that Paramount pulled down the Ethan Haas stuff on Youtube, but hey do you know how big Paramount is? It would not surprise me at all of Paramount has some ownership of mindstorm labs. All this was was a very good idea for Mindstorm bringing this out at the same time because it makes them have a lot more publicity from the people are searching for Cloverfield stuff. Well thats my info, and its all backed up by HARD EVIDENCE. So unless someone else has hard evidence to disprove me, instead of just saying "no your wrong" well then.....your an idiot.

    does anybody believe me about War of the Worlds 2 I know it might sound not likely but i saw a whole bunch of clues while i was watching the movie the clues might attach with this movie i might be wrong if you want to see the clues check out comment #635
  • Chris
    Are you illiterate? Nobody ever said it WAS Pokemon, but rather that there is a related character who just happened to be designed after Cthulhu. Read and look it up man. Oh, can you show me where the no name company that made that independent film OWNS the exclusive rights to Cthulhu? Just because a movie is made by one company doesn't mean that it won't/can't be made by another. And you're calling us idiots...laughable, completely laughable.
  • Shawn
    To Josh..... It might be Evangelion!
  • Chris
    To Nuhfer..... " It is not Eva, someone said it to be funny, then all the fanboys swooned and try to convince themselves it is." So I gues Ethan Hass is an eva fan then huh? (p.s. comment #349) :) Oh yeah, I almost forgot....... An Eva movie would rock
  • Shawn
    If your talking about me, and you think two different companies are gonna realease a movie about the exact same character in the same part of the same year then yes you are an idiot. It's like I said about the fanboys. You really want this to be Cthulhu, so there is nothing I or anyone, or even JJ could say to change your mind. But when it's finally revealed what the movie is about just remember I told you so. And no, it's not Evangelion. I'd bet my soul on it.

    It is called "The Parasite" and is about a group of people who witness the destruction of New York, ordinary civilians with video cameras.

    I will admit, out of all these an Evangelion movie would be most likely. But it's not. Sorry. Besides making an Evangelion movie that is shot in POV of some teens would be stupid huh?

    Comments on the preview. 1. Have we finally put away the "it's a lion" nonsense? Good, because that was just plain dumb. I still can't figure out how people can hear "lion" which is two syllables, when the guy clearly speaks only one. 2. The best clue, imho, is the whisper during the opening Paramount logo--"Quiet. He's coming." yeah, I know this is someone talking before the surprise party, but the words spoken before any film shows is a classic foreshadowing. He is coming and He wants quiet. 3. What the heck is that weird drawing, white on black cloth or paper, behind the asian dude pouring a drink (probably slurpo) who say's "how ya gonna survive without Rob, he's like your main dude?". Looks to me like a line drawing of demon's face on the upper right. 4. Statue of Liberty head. this comes in from the left, then ricochets off of a building down the way to the center right. Also, this happens some time after the first explosion. Just as an aside, no way the real head would look like that after an impact--it's actually fairly thin copper plating, braced with iron that actually bends in high winds--it would have been barely recognizable. Still a great image that clearly presages the utter destruction of the US, if not freedom itself. 5. The temperature is significant, I now believe. There is old window fan sitting out on a table or counter. 6. Some squiggly, snake-like thing leaning on the wall behind the girl who says "he's awesome". What is that? 7. I can't figure out what the brunette haired girl at the party says right after we first hear the monster roar/whatever it is? I've listened dozens of times and can't make it out. Any ideas? She's saying something about "I think it's..." or something like that? The african-american guy on the roof says "...shaking everywhere...it's thunderous". 8. That thing with "AKM" hanging up is a fraternity paddle for the Alpha Kappa Mu Honorary Society. I'm sure of this. Rob's a brainiac. AKM was founded in Tennessee 1937 by Dr. George W. Gore (how's that for irony; no relation--he was an African American), so the oblique Gore reference may again indicate a global warming subtext to the film. "George W. Gore" was also a name used by several commentators to describe the situation after the disputed 2000 election. If nothing else, Rob (or his roomate, if he has one) is a brainiac. 9. Can't make out any of the graffiti on the roof. Anyone have any luck with that?
  • Leonard
    10. Forgot about the map on the wall by the AKM paddle. Not a city map; possibly a geologial survey map indicating Rob may be either a geology whiz or just a hiker.

    Hey everyone, This was posted above but I wanted to back it up. http://www.slurpo.jp is VERIFIED!!!! The last post said the guy who goes "think we can see this from the roof" to the cameraman is INDEED wearing a Slurpo T-shirt. You'll have to go frame by frame on Apple's website where they have the HD trailer (to go frame by frame, pause the movie and then use your left and right arrow keys....you'll see the "slurpo!" text and the slushie type cup on the t-shirt) There has to be something at Slurpo! And there's a few other websites to boot....hmmm But yeah, reiterating something from before, but it's huge So, official sites related to the movie so far http://www.1-18-08.com http://www.slurpo.jp Wow, only 2 confirmed and JJ said there are many.....let's get cracking! :)
  • God Damnit!!!!!!!!!! Its SLUSHO not SLURPO, you dunce! Why does everyone call it slurpo?????????????????????????????????
  • Jeremy
    haha, I love slusho, I noticed that in the trailer too, among other things... like Ace 2004 on the wall and the paddle and a stop sign
  • Cloverfield fan
    okay nobody belives me so i am going to go with cthulhu for the movie
  • Crack V
    And to leonard, all i could make out on rooftop was "2004 ACE" so yeah. Plus, that snake thing is a type of bamboo plant, so yeah, means nothing. Trust me, Im in china, theyre everywhere here. Everyones got one, its good luck. Didnt really work out for Rob, did it?
  • Jeremy
    haha, I love slusho, I noticed that in the trailer too, among other things... like Ace 2004 on the wall and the paddle and a stop sign with dead on it
  • Cloverfield fan
    And I'm also going with the idea of the Eva movie.
  • Lexicon
    I hate the idea of this movie having anything to do with global warming... Nothing politically motivated here, I just feel that something original would be far more interesting and suspenseful. I see the significance of the fan in the apartment and the way people are dressed in January. But I sincerely hope JJ is using the idea of global warming to throw us off. Perhaps the Earth is warming due to this oncoming catastrophe, rather than the catastrophe being caused by the warming of the Earth. Just a thought. You brought up a lot of really interesting things Leonard. Especially the comment on the first line of the trailer. I think that line will actually prove to be a really fitting quote that we can look back to after the movie is released. As for the statue head I'm unsure if it really is the actual head, maybe just a replica? Again maybe trying to throw us off. -- The trailer is what we need to concentrate on. Please PLEASE, stop trying to state your case and present all this investigatory evidence that this hand held camera NYC disaster suspense movie is somehow a remake of your favorite anime... It's getting asinine Here are a few additional things about the trailer i noticed, and some others that maybe people can clarify. 1. Literally just before the earthquake and the deep 'roar' I hear this almost feminine voice or moan. I hear it almost saying 'Live' then the big deeper roar begins. Don't know what to make of it. It's freaky... 2. After the explosion, as people are running for the door, a 'meteor' hits the building in the background... but, it doesn't look as tho it caused any damage to the building at all... I don't know if that's just the effects apartment being lazy, or significant. 3. Throughout the entire trailer Rob constantly seems as though he knows whats up. The shot where he rubs his face as everyone looks out the window. Even just as the statues head is about to fall, he's the first to run. 4. The scene where we see the statues head fly and hit the building. I don't know if this has been brought up, but where it hits there is a large sign on the building that reads '401' and some writing i can't make out underneath. The heads collision destroys the sign. 5. Same shot as before. Cept watch the smoke rising up between the buildings in the bottom middle of the shot. I naturally never looked there but I think i see some really freaky demon-like faces being formed by the rising smoke. You have to go frame by frame with the quicktime trailer to really see it.

    Hey this goes out to Flagg79 and LiCH - There IS NY1 - it's a real channel/network it's owned by Time Warner and goes out to over 2million peeps in NY's 5 boroughs and some parts of Jersey (and yes it appears to be on a preset on channel 1 on the Time Warner Cable network even on some Cablevision systems.) Here's the official website: http://www.ny1.com They've also appeared in a couple of other NY-centric movies in the past ...

    Okay, for some reason my previous comment wouldn't post. Too many links, or something. Bottom line is this: I went to the website http://www.abz3293.com/, and didn't find a whole lot. So on a good ole' hunch, I decided to right-click and "view source". I scanned through the whole mess of Java script, and found 10 sites. I listed them all in my previous comment, but the comment never appeared. So far I've only investigated ONE of the sites: http://www.safeskieslocks.com/ Visit that website, and see the connection. I got goosebumps.
  • Chase
    Okay I think this site is script-secured from people spamming websites or something. So since this is not the case here, I am listing the 10 sites I found from right-clicking and "viewing source" on the black SUV website, without the "http://" and "www." w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns# purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/

    Ugh. Okay I give up, this site won't let me list all the 10 sites I found. Search for them on your own.

    It has come to my attention that Paramount still owns the rights to the remake of The Blob... Just throwing this out there, but I can easily imagine the blob exploding and being scattered randomly throughout the city. Although I wish for this movie to be original, upon hearing this I began thinking that a hand held camera movie for the Blob would be interesting. I can't explain the roaring, and the flinging of statue head tho.
  • Leonard
    re: #673; I'm not seeing the connection. If you mean the torch from the statue of liberty, it is called "liberty locks" after all. The company is real and you can buy the locks at amazon. I don't think there's any real connection; the guy who did abz3293 obviously wants someone to think there is, but that's it as far as I can tell.
  • Leonard
    FLASH!!! NEW MATERIAL AT SLUSHO.JP !!! At least it wasn't there yesterday: the downloads link is now operable with available backgrounds (two versions, each at three different sizes) and animated icons. Will check these out now. Received auto-reply from satoshi@slusho.jp (sorry, I think I'm the one that started the slurpo error before): "Slusho! loves your mails!! You Can't Drink Just Six!!!"

    correction: not animated icon, it's an instant messenger icon. Tried zooming into all the pics (slusho zoom!), and zooming in the java stuff on the pages and couldn't find anything yet.
  • demon guy
    Ok. I'm back again with the demons. Sorry if this has been mentioned but keeping up with these comments is killing me. (Especially all of this Pokemon BS. Like Rob is going to jump off the side of the building and throw that little ball and Pikachu is going to come out. Give me a fucking break already with that nonsense.) Anyway, when the guy says, "You owe me eleven dollars." What the hell is that in the curtain? On the roof it looks like it's a memorial tag. Like it says 1987-2004 Ace or something like that. You can see the bottom half of the numbers and the "-".
  • Lexicon
    OK i was brainstorming some ideas plot-wise for the film and came to some conclusions supporting this movie to be 'The Blob' remake. The trailer makes obvious the unseasonal warmth. Let alone it being midnight during January with no one wearing winter clothes. This implies global warming. At the end of the 1950s 'The Blob' movie, we freeze the alien and send him to the North pole, I believe. Thus now, global warming has perhaps melted some of the ice and the blob somehow fell into the ocean... Think of the unbelievable amounts of nutrients that the Blob would be privy to in the ocean... the more it consumes, the larger it becomes. Thus it 'eats and eats' growing unfathomably gigantic. Until finally finding its way to the shores of the continents. Thus it can hurl the head of the statue of liberty, from the water, and from that distance. It would just simply be that enormous. The roaring can simply be gas escaping from its mass or anything. If it's large enough, that sound can easily be made. My bet is that this is an apocalypse movie that delivers a true apocalypse. No hero, no group of scientists that will save the day. Every one will be consumed. The Blob is the PARASITE, and it is feeding on the entire planet. Let me know what you think? And keep in mind that I would love for this to be original and new, but as of know this is my bet...
  • stig
    This is not a blob movie. Just because paramount owns the rights to the blob franchise, does not mean they are going to drag that piece of shit ip out of the eighties for another go. oh, and as I said before: how could this be an evangelion movie? that anime takes place in neo-tokyo, not new york, much less in the future and not present day. thats about as ridiculous as saying its going to be a gundam movie. as i have said before, it's either a cthulhu movie or something original. stig on Jul 10, 2007 by the way, i am hoping for something original.
  • millionmiles
    Right there are significant points in that trailer. 1. When Rob has his photograph taken the first and second flash looks enhanced as though drawing your attention. - I think this picture will surface at some piont. 2. Just after the flash Rob looks in the what could be the bathroom and looks as though he's checking something is still there or has been moved (could have been hiding something and with everyone in his house for the party they may have interfeared with it), and by the look an his face looks pissed off. 3. The close up on the Sushi? 4. "How you gonna survive without Rob" part, Robs reaction is strangly sarcastic - "I dont know im like your main dude"???? At this point on the fridge there looks like a menu or something "Ding Ding" (i think) checked http://www.dingding.co.kr and the only reason i mentioned it is its in the Slusho style web. It's in Korean and might be a long shot but thought id mention it. 5. The guy (Blonde / white hair) behind the bar defo stands out for some reason. 6. I agree with a note earlier the first noise does sound like it is saying something. 7. Rob putting his hands through his hair as if he knows something is going down and then the camera panning over to the paddle thing "AKM" and the map beside it. 8. The temperature on the TV 63 degrees. 9. The guys Slusho T-shirt = http://www.slusho.jp 10. When on the roof - first the noise then the explosion, is it something firing something or is it something coming up from the ground. But when the rocket type things reach a certain point they break off into smaller rocket type things. dont know where im going with this one???? 11. The graff on the walls and when about to run down the stairs "Shop (i think) 2004 (or zoom) ace". 12. The maybe demons on the walls in the stairs. 13. The guy with the white "O" on the back of his shirt, could be the same guy in the party photograph. 14. I know with all the sound analysis shit they say its not "a lion" but alive i think he say's Lion. 15 The man walking towards the camera in the tuxedo defo draws attention to him. 16. If you listen a guy says "did anybody see Jenson, did anybody see Jenson" who the fuck is Jenson. 17. Im getting bored with this shit now. 18. Rob defo leaves before anyone else just as the missile liberty head comes into shot. 19. the Liberty head hits square on the sign "401" 20. the black car's reg - "ABZ - 3293" - http://www.abz3293.com dont know what thats about. 21. The camera focusing in on the couple to the left of the jeep and the guy doing that huge flying leap over the black car onto them as if to attack or protect. 22. the graff on the back of the sign "DEAD DEAD" or something. 23. "Its going to be the best night ever" - the film takes place over one night??? 24. The "girls" picture may not be a demon but an angel's body with grey wings, white face and grey robe. I know this seems a running comentary of the trailer but thought id give my 2 bits worth and looking back seems like a waste of time and a fucking pain in the ass. GIVE US A FUCKING CLUE, FOR FUCKS SAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ethan Haas is a pain in the ass - no it's not a new website its a point of fucking view.Ah fuck it im off.
  • Crack V
    #672 brought up a good point. In the smoke, there are some strange looking shapes. I noticed it, but i didnt really say anything. I just thought i was being desperate and seeing things. But now that somebody else has noticed, cool. Maybe i wasnt seeing things... If that wasnt seeing things, then i might as well note the large humanoid shaped shadow that i see standing near the explosion. When it zooms in its not there, and a building is clearly visible in its place. Wether or not that means the shadow moved or it was just the building blurred, i dont know. Ok, dont hate me for this, and i deffinately dont think that this is what the movie is, but a live action pokemon movie might just be cool. And by that, i mean make them realistic looking, like they are actually supposed to look like. When i was younger, i saw one of the origional pokemon manga, all the pokemon looked bad ass. I mean, some of em were just downright scary lookin. The big sea serpent dude, Garados or sumptin, looks kinda cool normally. In that manga he was freaking awsome. Cold blooded killer he was, ripped a dude apart. That, and they didnt just faint, when they got knocked down and slashed open, they didnt just get sprayed by a healing spray and feel better, they were dead. Seriously, if they made a pokemon movie that was true to the manga, then it may not be so bad. But yeah, this movie is either cthulu or origional. One or the other, definately nothing else. But Cthulu is already being made by other guys, so yeah.
  • Crack V
    http://www.dingding.co.kr/ check this out. Its slusho styleish, but if you look at source it looks exactly the same as SLusho website. And it was on the fridge in the trailer.

The reason I started putting a K after my first name is because I actually thought there was two Shawns on here and added my last names initial to tell us apart. What an ass clown.
  • groggo
    before you new cats drop your revolutioary theories here, read the prior posts and dont post facts we already know unless your connecting them. also, i think were getting to into it, time to step back and think the JJ way. He wants us to figure it out, so i bet the next big clue has already been overlooked. by now theres no doubt in my mind that the next clue is out there, he's hinted at it, and that we definately havent got it yet. i bet he's anxious as hell.
  • Flagg79
    2 Things: First, adding on to teh Rob-Knows-What's-Up Theory...look at 1:16-1:17 as they are running down the stairs. When the camera man falls or stumbles or whatever, Rob comes into view. Does it look to anyone else like he is trying to take the camera away? Secondly, I am almost certain that at the end, when there is the white flicker before "Produced by JJ Abrams", those words are saying something else at the bottom of the screen before they take full form. Does anyone have any way to do a better stop/start than the media viewer is allowing to see what it says?
  • lennit
    hahahaha, it was late last night when I did the "slurpo" thing, I was tired Yes, it's http://www.slusho.jp And if you look, I posted on this before...hahahaha. I just backed up a confirmation.....whoops! But I'm really intrigued with the "Slusho zoom!" quotes on there. I got this crazy idea that something is hidden on the page and we're suppose to zoom in to see it. The only thing I tried to do is zoom in on the cup and look carefully while it spins (about every 15 seconds or so). What if there was a message just hidden behind the cup? It looked like something might be there when I was zoomed out, but when zoomed in I didn't see anything (and for those who don't know, right click on the flash animation for Slusho! and click "zoom") I wonder if that's a clue or if it's nothing. Also, Rob's leaving for Japan...hmmmm...maybe he's going to go work for Slusho?
  • Flagg79
    Also....we know the donkey is thinking of blue oven mitts. But what's with the fish thinking of cheese? I know Japanese advertising is odd, but what the hell? Also, read the history. It has a lot to do with oceanagraphic sciences. When added up with what looks like a survey map or something on Rob's wall, I think this indicates that he's into ocean sciences, namely tectonic plates. This could also be why he may suspect something. He doens't look surprised like everyone else in the trailer; he looks scared and as if he knew it was coming. Maybe he found something on the ocean floor (if that's his job or field of study) and knew that it was on its way???? I dunno....argh....

That is, 12:01 AM EST and 12:36 AM EST. I wonder if anything would come from that? -In the autoreply you get from Slusho, I wonder if the CAPS in "You Can't Drink Just Six" is important? Is YCDJS supposed to indicate something? Also, there is a pattern of sorts in the exclamation marks. ONE after "slusho", TWO after loves your mails and THREE after the slogan. Thoughts, ideas?

    READ YOU FOOLS!!!!!!!! GET YOUR FACTS & MYTHS RIGHT....... J. Abrams recently sent the website Aintitcool.com a note about his upcoming film Cloverfield (1/18/08). The teaser trailer for the movie premiered this weekend before Transformers. The note reads: 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. Our own site describes the movie as such: A giant monster movie (referred internally as Godzilla) which is shot using home video cameras from the point of view of real people who are experiencing the attack on New York City. Watch the trailer!

  • ShawnK
    I don't know why I'm feeding this, cause I really don't think it's Battle of the Planets, but some things to ponder: BOTP is about a five-member superhero team of young adults called G-Force that fights to defend Earth and its space colonies from the threat of the planet Spectra The 1st episode was called Attack of the Space Terrapin, and some fun trivia from that episode is...The plume of smoke that erupts from the Turtle King when it explodes was cut from the American version. Apparently it was thought that it would be too confusing to see real smoke in an animated show. .....Explosion and smoke coming from a giant space, turtle monster thing? Anywho, I don't think it is BOTP, just neat how some things matched. Or maybe I've spent way too much time on this movie. IT'S SOMETHING NEW I HONESTLY BELIEVE.

    The Chris that posted that crap about JJ Abrams email, is not me. I am however the one that said the slusho.com site points to Pokemon, which led me to a digimon character based on Cthulhu. Read my previous posts, it does make a lot of sense. The other Chris, claiming he received an email from Abrams himself, is full of it. I truly meant what I said about the Slusho - Pokemon - Cthulhu link. Check on it yourself. And no, I did not say THIS IS POKEMON. I believe the movie to be Cthulhu based on the evidence I found on Slusho.com.

Probably not, but interesting anyway. Also, I noticed that the guy giving Rob the drink is the one who's wearing the Slusho t-shirt. Hmmm.

    Now, what I noticed is that the time is 12:48am, so it's still night, but it is very, very bright. So I'm wondering, is this in the exact instant of some kind of explosion? What's causing this intense light? Also, it looks as if there's some kind of fire in the background to the left of the picture. I guess they're covering their faces because of the smoke around them, if smoke is what that actually is.

  • kurt
    Keep in mind JJ Abrams has a thing for apocalyptic end of the world themes. From Abrams himself (so purposed misleading, or true): This is a new movie, not an old theme rehashed. So fortunately the knocks off pokemon. The monster isn't what it seems (whatever that means) Does anyone know what the text on the refrigerator door says? It looks like two characters then "MYSTERY". Also, when they leave the building to get onto the street, why is there a fluorescent circle on the striped shirt guys' back? Ethanhaaswasright is not related to the movie because it is for a video game about the end of the earth. Unless someone can prove Paramount had the EthanHaas videos removed, I think JJA was being honest about this. I can't find it now, but there is a website which clearly shows several links between the game and site. For the record: "What is it? Is it coming this way? I saw it! It's alive!

    I can't believe that morons are still making comments like "Pokemon?? Please." after 600 comments. Do some fucking research you knuckleheads. So far, Chris is dead on and so is the guy who mentioned this is an end-of-the world type film Taken from wiki on Cthulhu: Cthulhu is a fictional monster created by horror author H. P. Lovecraft, and is one of Lovecraft's Great Old Ones.[1] It is often cited for the extreme descriptions given of its appearance, size, and the abject terror that it invokes. And this: Castro explains the role of the Cthulhu Cult: When the stars have come right for the Great Old Ones, "some force from outside must serve to liberate their bodies. The spells that preserved Them intact likewise prevented them from making an initial move."[15] At the proper time, “ the secret priests would take great Cthulhu from His tomb to revive His subjects and resume His rule of earth....Then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men shouting and killing and revelling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.[17]" Then I ran into this on an unrelated site: Cthulhu is a monstrous entity who lies "dead but dreaming" in the city of R'lyeh, a place of non-Euclidean madness presently (and mercifully) sunken below the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Cthulhu appears in various monstrous and demonic forms in early myths of the human race. Racial memory preserves Him as humanity's most basic nightmare. Cthulhu is the high priest of the Great Old Ones, unnatural alien beings who ruled the Earth before humanity formed, worshipped as gods by some misguided people. It is said that They will return, causing worldwide insanity and mindless violence before finally displacing humanity forever. Then there is this: Cthulhu is also the worshiped leader of a cult called the Order of Dagon which beliefs are parallel to Christianity but in a satanic way. I think without a doubt this is a Cthulhu film.

    Hey guys - I can't figure out the 4th puzzle - I'm using the arrow keys but one of the little buggers won't lock up - any hints?? Thanks!!!
  • nick
    who cares its not realted to the movie ur wasting ur time where have u been?
  • GSPgirl
    I know that! I just want to figure the damn thing out. It's my time anyways
  • GSPgirl to beat the 4th puzzle do the following up, up, left, left, down, down, down, left, left, right, right, up, up, right, right, up, up, left, left, left (note that when you hit these keys the blue ball should only move once, unless you have the 3 key presses in that case the ball should only move twice, as for the 2 key presses, one is for the rotation and the other is movement.) good luck.
  • This may have been posted before (I can't be expected to read through 753 previous posts), but I just got a friend invite on http://www.myspace.com from 1-18-08. The site _looks_ official, but you never know. I think the URL is http://www.myspace.com/intheaters11808 Anyway, the third photo on the OFFICIAL site doesn't give much clues... although I does remind me entirely of 9-11. I can't tell you how many of those post impact photos I was forced fed by the local media everyday. It was depressing enough, why did we have to relive it every damn day. Luckily we've moved on, but we will never forget. I haven't read much of the Dark Tower's series, but I do know it revolves around a "Gun Slinger", a type of over-the-top Clint Eastwood character. And it indeed has multiple worlds and dimensions. I do believe that Rob was given advanced warning of this event, either from visions/dreams, prophecies, or even first hand knowledge. He _may_ be the central character, but I think the movie would work better as an ensemble piece with many characters and many cliffhangers/red herrings. Also! If you live in the NY area, there are modeling/extras companies that are flooding classified sections with advertising. If someone was so inclined, maybe they could get an 'inside' look. I wouldn't mind running down broadway away from the monster =) At least i would put a look of terror on my face, unlike most of those extras in the trailer who look indifferent, or even jovial while running.

    I still think it's worth examining the ethan haas connection. Too many people, imo, took the Knowles claim that he received an email from jja denying any connection to the film at face value. Even if you accept for the sake of argument that the JJA email is legit, JJA does not deny any connection between the Ethan Haas phenomenon and Cloverfield. What he allegedly wrote is: "The others (like the Ethan Haas sites) have nothing to do with us." This could be read to imply that "ethan haas is wrong," meaning that ethanhaaswaswrong is the right site. Get it? Ethan Haas is "long forgotten", according to Ethanhaaswaswrong, therefore he is not alive and somewhere to be found. This buzz campaign is very well orchestrated. Note that JJA didn't say this in an impromptu, on-air interview. It's a composed email which, if he did write it, would have been carefully crafted to hide the ball. Finally, parasitemovie, which is the first site to directly link ethan haas and the movie through it's link to tossinggames and the fact that it's "hosted" on sledriding.com. The fact that "parasite" movie is "hosted" by sledriding may itself be a significant clue--at least to the ethan haas mystery. Finally, if this is about a game promotion, what possible good would it do them to piggyback on someone else's marketing campaign, unless they are, in fact, tied together. Incidentally, Youtube itself posted a message when the Van Mantra vids were yanked and that said the vids were removed at Paramount's request because of copyright infringement. I don't have that message, but others saved it. next post on examining slusho.jp and 1-18-08.com

    I was just reading all the Cthulu comments on this page. And although it is indeed interesting, i doubt that J J Abrams would revolve a movie around an esoteric mythology. Cthulu is not well known enough to be a draw at the box office. However, if they keep up this level of secretcy it is entirely possible that we can all get 'duped' into seeing yet another rehash of someone else's work.
  • the real ShawnK
    I dint know why, he's just a little douchebag
  • With all these clues, and with J J Abrams using a Japanese based website. It is entirely possible that the "SWITZERLAND" T-shirt is a valid clue. I will be checking into this shortly. If even half of the clues in this trailer are real or intended A LOT of work and thought went into this, and it may go down in history as the most brilliant marketing campaign in the modern world. Just a quick theory: Switzerland hosts the United Nations which coincidentally is located in NYC. It is also the location of the Central/Swiss Alps. (could be a location for a resistance base, or humanity's last stand) Switzerland has a history of being neutral, I can't remember the last time they participated in a war. (A metaphor? Or an omen, telling us not to fight the monster.) Thank you wikipedia for this one: 40% of Switzerland's power comes from Nuclear power. (A nod to a Godzilla-type movie) I know, I know. I'm stretching here... But you have to go down many roads until you find the one that takes you to the truth.

    Oh -- on that myspace page someone says they think the last photo says "1-19-08" a day after? I'm not entirely convinced. The picture still says AM so it should be really dark. Perhaps it would be too difficult to film dust and debris in a dark setting, the dust could be reflecting the film crew's lights.
  • LiCH
    -In the autoreply you get from Slusho, I wonder if the CAPS in “You Can't Drink Just Six" is important? Is YCDJS supposed to indicate something? Also, there is a pattern of sorts in the exclamation marks. ONE after “slusho", TWO after loves your mails and THREE after the slogan. Thoughts, ideas? In response to Flagg, Japanese usually use two exclamation marks instead of one, !! When something important or exciting is printed. Although, the !, !!, !!! marks are definitely interesting, I don't know of their significance. Maybe “You Can't Drink Just Six" is a jumble, we could try and unscramble it. Anyone down?

    We can't all post on the hundreds of blogs now devoted to this subject, so why not try to make this the best? What do we know for sure is related to cloverfield, and what about those things do we believe are significant, other than the trailer itself? 1. 1-18-08.com is the only 100% verified official site. It has three pics now, which move slightly on their own (though this could just be a bug with the flash) and which may or may not have clues and may or may not be scenes from the actual movie. They may or may not have been manipulated with photo editing tools. One pic is of the party, taken at 12:01 AM on 1-18-08. It shows Rob holding someone else's hand in his left hand, a woman holding his right arm, and a male pouring a drink down Rob's throat. It is not clear whether this is a forced action. Perhaps significantly, the drink-pourer is wearing a shirt that appears to be similar if not identical to one of the slusho logos at slusho.jp (see below). The second is a pic showing the left part of the face of one woman and the other being the right half of the face of another, both looking up with wide eyes and partly opened mouths that may show fear, or amazement. Something is reflected in the visible eyes of the women and this appears to be a sliver of light which could either be just that, or perhaps some source of light, with a trail, moving from one direction to the other. The woman on the right appears to be the same woman in the right-hand side of the party picm. Many claim that between the women you can make out a figure of something, possibly demonic, monstrous, or perhaps even angelic. Whether this is really there, or the claims are just examples of pattern recognition (such as seeing images in clouds) is unknown. The most recent photo, posted today shows two women in front of a few other people who are hard to make out. They are holding their hands over their faces and appear to be walking (not running) through smoke or perhaps a cloud of dust. This pic could stand further examination. 2. slusho.jp, by all appearances, is also an official site, though this is not verified. It is believed that a person in the Cloverfield preview is wearing a slusho shirt and the same guy is giving Rob a drink (almost forcing him to drink). I can't tell for sure, because I don't have the HD, but it looks pretty much like the same slusho logo on the splash page. The history page posted at slusho is weird, to say the least--involving a woman who did an underwater exploration in order to find some substance that made her a "little whale"; this same substance is the base ingredient of slusho, which is said to come in many flavors, though none are available through the flavors link as of now. The phrase "slusho zoom" appears throughout the site, but zooming in and out of the flash or the jpegs recently made available (two versions of the slusho logo) don't seem to reveal anything yet. Recently the downloads page became active and there are two sets of jpeg images, three sizes each, of two versions of the slusho logo. There is also an AIM icon with a slusho logo. Slusho has been reported as another code name for the cloverfield project and either slusho or a similarly named drink product was offered by one character to another on JJ Abrams' show, Alias. slusho.jp was registered before the trailer was released. 3. Henry Knowles of aintitcoolnews claims to have received an as-yet-unverified email from someone claiming to be JJ Abrams, in which the writer, commenting on the stuff on the web states that "The others (like the Ethan Haas sites) have nothing to do with us." It also claims that only 1-18-08 is official, but that there are others that no one has found yet (though it's unclear whether this message predates news of the discovery of slusho.jp. Ethan Haas is the name of a character on the cancelled CBS production, The Class, which also starred Lizzy Caplan, who is known to be an actress in the cloverfield project. Parasitemovie.com is related to the ethan haas mystery through links to a blog on tossinggames.com, which is related to sledriding.com (the site hosting the parasitemovie images). Parasitemovie has a countdown to August 1, 2008, which is a date referred to in the so-called "Van Mantra" videos one receives through successful completion of an ARG on ethanhaaswasright. Registration data for parasitemovie.com and ethanhaaswasright.com shows bogus names and non-existent addresses. All these sites appeared at about the same time or shortly after the appearance of 1-18-08.com. What else do we actually know?
  • LiCH
    I'm begining to think that slusho.jp is not a hint site, but rather a vague back story. Apparently an oceanographer/scientist found a mysterious 'ingredient' and brought it back to civilization to incorporate it into a slurpee. This is an easy way to explain the begining of the movie without having to explain it via dialogue or flash backs. It is also vague enough that people can use their imagination. Which very few movies do now-a-days, like they did in the old black and white movies. Everything is shown on screen now. I don't know which way I prefer, but they both have their good points. Slusho!!
  • LiCH
    "Ethan Haas is the name of a character on the cancelled CBS production, The Class, which also starred Lizzy Caplan, who is known to be an actress in the cloverfield project" Has anyone actually *WATCHED* 'The Class'? Did the character ever claim he could see the future? Is this a coincidence? Anyway, there are too many red herrings. So many things that are seemingly important, but may not be. o.O
  • Chase
    I just noticed something for the first time, that I've not seen anyone mention yet. I'm watching the trailer hosted on this site, and I spotted a rather familiar-looking character, at time: 00:37 - 00:38... Freddy Kreuger. He's standing right next to Rob, in a shadowy angle - with the EXACT same kind of hat Freddy Krueger always wear.
  • Leonard
    SLUSHO UPDATE> There have been some relatively minor changes to the site since yesterday. "Slusho!" now has a TM for trademark, though no trademark registration is listed at the USPTO yet; "you can't drink just six" also now carries a trademark logo. Presumably, this is a response to apparently unauthorized t-shirts with the logo now available at some sites. Also, gratefully, there is an "audio off" option, probably because the theme was driving people insane. The flash has also changed and now shows the word "slusho!" in white, with a blue liquid effect in the letters suspended over purple bands radiating from the top during the transitions between pages. Other slusho notes 1. slusho.jp prominently features several repeated phrases, some of which pop up when you mouseover various things or moving objects: "slusho zoom!", "Fresh for you!!", "You can't drink just six." 2. on the feedback page, you are invited to "tell slusho" if you are happy. Is Slusho itself a sentient being? 3. Contrary to popular belief, Slusho! was not created by Norika Yoshida, who only had what seems to be a "normal" beverage business, but who was a "small whale" because she drank so many beverages. Norika was lost at sea searching for a new ingredient. Ganu, her son, left the family business on account of the tragedy, but became an ocean scientist (it has been conjectured that Rob is an ocean scientist or geologist owing to what appears to be a technical sort of map on his wall). On an expedition, Ganu and his "teammates" discovered a unique substance that apparently had several possible uses, but Ganu was led to develop it as the ingredient for a drink on account of a dream he had. During the dream, he was a fish and a great whale told him to drink the substance, which Ganu did, causing him to become a great whale. As a result, Ganu decided to make the substance the main ingredient of a new beverage, which is Slusho! He believes this to be the ingredient his mother was seeking. It must be served in a near-icy state in order to preserve its "freshness" and is therefore like a slushy. 4. Slusho! "came to life" once Ganu started to mass-produce the product; drinkers want to drink more of the drink and "bet you can't drink just six!!!". This implies that Slusho! is addictive and we might guess that with the seventh drink, something happens to the drinker. Everyone who drinks Slusho! tastes Norika's dream and becomes a "small whale", like her. 5. The need to keep Slusho! nearly frozen and the unusual warmth on January 1, 2008 are likely related. Possible theory: an enormous shipment of Slusho! in a tanker gets to warm and transforms into a giant beast. Other theory: rise in ocean temperature causes source of Slusho! to awake. A problem with the global-warming theory is that not even the most extreme proponents would suggest that the average temperature would rise 30 degrees above normal by January; thus the unusual temperature on 1/18/08 may be an unhappy coincidence, or something else is causing the temperature rise. Needing to keep Slusho! near frozen and the high temperature on 1/18 are definitely related, however.

    what is the painting of on wolf mother's home page? the trailer plays one of their songs at the party. when you go to their site, http://www.wolfmother.com, you will find something very interesting. would love for someone else to check it out.
  • Tom Huck
    Okay, why is everyone so obsessed with this film? Even though I am a follower, it's besides the point. IN my opinion, all anyone does on here is post dumbass shit that makes no sense. Like pokemon, whoever made that idea, go kill yourself. I say we all get together, have some pie, calm down, and take a break from this movie. I still think the Biggest Possibility of all is J.J. Abrams presents Jim Henson's Muppets Attack New York City. Cmon can't anybody see Gonzo's huge nose whip the Statues Head?
  • Tossing games is nothing to do with 1-18-08. I did the Parasite Movie site to cash in - you can see it is registered at GoDaddy like all my other sites. Unfortunately it has back fired, I'm getting too much server traffic and it is costing me a fortune. I'm also constantly maintaining the forums because of dumb arse posters. Please spread the word this has nothing to do with 1-18-08. Steve King tossinggames.com
  • CrackV
    A: HOW THE HELL HAS NOBODY ON THIS FORUM MENTIONED THAT THERE IS A THIRD PICTURE ON 1-18-08!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! People running through dust or smoke or sumptin. Cant see a thing, maybe someone else can. B: 770 is a genius!!!! I dont think he/she realises it yet though. Slusho tells the story of the MOVIE!! Or at least the back story. Scientist finds mysterious chemical or substance or something on ocean floor and brings it back, then something happens. Im not really thinking he/she makes a drink out of it though... But still, brining back uknown sumptin from the bottom of the sea could be a clue. Let us list off things lurking at bottom of the sea. 1. Godzilla has been known to chill out in the trendy pacific trenches. 2. Supposedly, Cthulu and all his homies are sleeping with the fishes down there somewhere. 3. Well, i dont know, but im sure that theres a three down there somewhere. Everyone goes down there eventually... So yeah, probably nothing, but just a thought. AND CHECK OUT THE FREAKING THIRD PICK FOR GODS SAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Brock Sampson
    Uh yeah, it's been mentioned several times. Read all the posts.
  • Brock Sampson
    And for the last time it's not Godzilla or Cthulu. Something brand new.

    lich comment 762 thats the point! the fact that cthulhu is not well known would make it a hit! hell if its a new monster then the fact that its not known at all would make it a hit!

    Maybe the 2 girls in the 3rd pic are the same girls in the 2nd pic. If so, it appears that, within 17 minutes the entire part of lower manhattan just got blown up... brings back some bad memories for me.
  • FRANKLIN
    and also people please refrain from posting long comments. i like to read all of them but not when they ramble on for about 8 paragraphs. just make it short and sweet you know?
  • FRANKLIN
    one thing i didnt notice and if someone else did i am sorry but in the picture of rob partying the guy dumping the drink down robs throat is the slusho shirt guy. again sorry if someone ales mentioned it
  • FRANKLIN
    also in the same pic the dude who seems to have his face buried into rob is the same guy who has the wierd sircles on the back of his shirt while running out of the building
  • FRANKLIN
    and finally i am not sure but the chic behind all of them might be the girl that says "robs awesome. i'm gonna miss him" cause they wear the same dress and somewhat the same hair
  • Alex
    @ Templeator What is strange about the wolfmother site?
  • FRANKLIN
    another thing that i am sure HAS to have been mentioned but i wanna know the answer, why do the lights go out when the monster roars? and then come back on later? i could understand if the thing hit some power line but the tv is still working though the lights around them are not and the lights near the windows are working
  • FRANKLIN
    and in the latest picture the one on the right seems to be wearing a headband. any one agree?
  • FRANKLIN
    i am currently scanning the party for chis with headbands and i have found one at the very beginning in the background of the chic saying "quiet hes coming"
  • Brock Sampson
    Is there somewhere where we can see stills from the entire trailer? Also, some things I noticed, the freaky looking girl behind rob in the party pic has an 8 or a 9 on her shirt. And the guy running out into the street had the 0 on his. Both are clearly photoshoped. Any thoughts. Sorry if this has already been talked about and I missed it. Just tell me the # it was posted.
  • Flagg79
    Don't know if this is important or not...it seems like it might be. If you go to 1-18-08.com and scatter the pictures around so that NONE of them are touching, they DON'T move at all. Howwever, if you overlap them, they start to move by themselves. I don't think this is a glitch with Flash because the movement seems to be too perfectly timed. Can anyone find any sort of pattern or any other ideas from this bit of info?
  • FRANKLIN
    it has but we didn't really go anywhere with it cause it didn't seem to mean much i just realized a little while ago that the dude with the o on his shirt is in the picture with rob but noone knows much about the girl with the nine
  • FRANKLIN
    flagg79 i'm just guessing but i am pretty sure its a glitch of some sort. also another thing. in the picture if you look to find where his hands are, his right one is in the are seemingly making a fist in a triumphant manner like he is having a good time which he clearly is and the other is by his side and seems to be holding someone else hand....but whos?
  • FRANKLIN
    the girl on the left seems to be holding something in the hand she is not covering her mouth with. whatever is in her hand seems to be attatched to a string leading down to her thigh

    #786 - I remember reading somewhere about these "parasite" monsters that they feed off of electricity or electromagnetic something... I AM NOT REFERRING TO POKEMON, but I thought I remembered reading this somewhere else. Does anyone else remember reading this (other than the above pokemon posts)? If so, then maybe the roar created some kind of pull on the electricity, kinda like a short surge or something.
  • Rafe
    #774 - that is an interesting painting, but I'm not sure that it has anything to do with this.

    Am I the only one who send an email to Slusho.jp through the Feedback page on the site? I got a strange response right away. It just said "Slusho! loves your mails!! You Can't Drink Just Six!!!" Maybe that puts you on some mailing list or something. Hell I don't know.

    OMG! If you play the teaser trailer's soundtrack in reverse, you will notice that the second girl leaving a comment for "Rob" says: "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn"! It's CTHULHU!!! Come ON guys, I know this teaser is amazing, and that we've all read the Da Vinci Code and see clues in every pixel, but let's get real: it's a MONSTER MOVIE for Heaven's sake! If we all spent a tenth of the energy invested on this teaser on "The 11th Hour" trailer and its message our planet would be a much better place. Let's get real.
  • FRANKLIN
    alex its deeper than just "a monster movie" ok? obviously not as deep as we are getting into but this is all we have to work with right now
  • Brock Sampson
    #802 - Dude, it's our time to waste, why do you care. If you are not interested in the movie and have nothing to contribute why are you here? And shove the whole let's make the world a better place. It will only get worse. Peace is a lie.

  • Alex C
    #804 - Hey Brock! I care because, despite loving SF, Lovecraft and cinema (& its Marketing - I'm a Marketeer myself), I just get upset and saddened by the fact that we all seem to invest way more time in things of no importance whatsoever (apart from its entertainment values) like cinema, rather into things that *really* matter like our planet ("The 11th Hour" is about the irreparable damages done to Earth by us - and not by a CGI monster). And, as you say, "it will only get worse" if we don't start focusing on the real priorities. This said, I'm really looking forward to watching Slusho as the guy next door - despite the fact that it still is a Monster movie, Franklin #803... Way to go, JJ Abrams!

    I think you need to calm yourself, Alex. The trailer seemed... I don't know... corny? cheesy? perhaps like a Roland Emmerich movie. So it's shot with handheld video cameras. Oooooh. And it's about NY getting ripped to pieces. Double oooooh. And let's not forget that J.J. Abrams does in fact suck at all things related to movies. (Insert here your smart -- but lifted from Entourage's Johnny Drama -- counterarguments about how bad ass J.J. Abrams is.) And I think it's a war crime to call any movie that has its trailer playing before Transformers "top secret."

    That's a good article/theory. He's probably right, and I think it's better that way.

    #810 Eatit, I'm not saying that JJ Abrams has produced the film of the year. Perhaps it will suck, but its teaser campaign (on/offline) has already achieved in a week the buzz the hyper-twisted and over-sophisticated machine Spielberg had put together for A.I. didn't get in all its duration.
  • Flagg79
    Go to the link on post #801. Then do some research on the Book of Revelations. Then SPECIFICALLY read about the 4 horsemen of the apocolypse. I think that dude is on to something.

  • Sean G
    ok why has no one got the real pics of the monster from nightowl yes there are real pics, some one got some pics from set and send them to nightowl (the one who does the analysis videos) im not saying we tie him up and force him to give them to us (well not at this point) but come on some needs to convince him to give them up. gah come on people work btw if you have no idea what im talking about heres the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5_yN8K0s1k&mode=related&search=
  • Brock Sampson
    I also like the theory from the 812 link, as well as the link I posted about the revelation stuff. Maybe doing the end of the world, but it's unseen so we can make our own beast of the apocolypse. Also, on the http://www.abz3293.com/ site, a link (forgot which one) will take you to http://www.tribbleagency.com/?p=292. Something to look into maybe.
  • Brock Sampson
    # 816 - Probably cause the guy might be full of shit. Are we supposed to just take his word that he was on set and took pictures. Come on man. That's not much different from the guy that said he emailed JJ.
  • Brock Sampson
    I'm not trying to be an ass or anything. It's just that the being this big secret that everyone wants to find out is what's gonna make this movie a blockbuster. I don't see them letting some joe just walk off set with pics of the MAIN thing they are keeping secret. Not to mention that they may not even show the monster, which means there would be no pics to show. This guy could be legit, but I really really doubt it.
  • Sean G
    yeah i know he could be full of $h@t but still its worth a try :) also this guy is pretty well known in the 1 18 08 world so i doubt he would ruin his name with complete BS but then again he might
  • There is this rumor going around blog land that this "Side Production" has to do with this whole thing. Their Web site just says "You've been warned..." and the only thing I see on YouTube is this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5JkGfoQrPw. I don't see what that could have to do with Cloverfield.

    The more I look at the explosion, I'm starting to think that whatever caused it came from underneath the earth. Think Volcano. That's how the explosion and fireballs seem to me, like an erupting volcano. However, where the hell did the Liberty Head come from?
  • Brock Sampson
    It is odd. The explosion suggest from underground, yet the Liberty head suggest from Sea. It's insane I tells ya!

    The "9" in the picture isn't on the girl's shirt - she is wearing a tight black shirt and you see a side profile of her breasts behind the man wearing the pink shirt. The "9" looks like it's coming from the wall behind her and could not be a "9" at all because it looks like it has been cut off.

    Guys, I really think Abrams put a clever subliminal message in this trailer. I think it's his way of saying, "This is a NIGHTMARE". Watch the trailer on this site, at the timeframe 00:36 - 00:38 (when the first thunderous roar began), there is a man standing near the center, to the right. He looks EXACTLY like Freddy Kreuger (in terms of silhoutte), with the exact same kind of hat. Coincidence? From what I've gathered about JJ Abrams, I doubt this.
  • Dougrandy
    I skimmed through the postings and one thing I keep seeing in comments is that it's January and people are wondering how it can be 63 at 12:32am in January. When and where does it say it's January? I'm looking at the frame of the NY1 newscast and it doesn't say the date. No one ever says what day it is during the trailer. Just because the movie is coming out in January doesn't mean it takes place in January.
  • Achilles
    Sorry if this was discussed before but, did anybody catch what was said right before the first roar? It sounded like somebody saying something backwards.
  • kenny
    On my computer at work I was allowed to zoom out and in on the pictures. Today, at home, I tried to zoom, but it asked if I wanted to allow 1-18-08.com access to my web cam and microphone! WTF over.
  • darkone
    It just might be January because every snap shot says 1-18-08 and the time!
  • JJJackson
    just a possibility, but has anyone looked at anagrams, say of 'CLOVERFIELD', one being 'Devil, Elf, Orc'. And yes, I've read ALL 833 posts, so far!
  • Dougrandy
    I don't think the date on the photos has anything to do with the date they're supposed to be taken...the time yes, but not the date. Since there isn't anything identifying the movie EXCEPT the release date right now and since the website is purposely vague IMHO it is strictly marketing at this point. On the other hand, in the rooftop scene when they zoom in on the guy talking about how everything was shaking there is a building in the background which looks like the Empire State Building but the crown is lit in green...perhaps getting ready for Christmas? Could this really be happening sometime in late November or early December? Have there been heat waves like that in NYC that time of year? Funny how we're all obsessing over this. All I can say is this had better be one heck of a movie!
  • Josh
    has anyone anagramed 'cloverfield' by chance?
  • josh
    also, dont know if anyone noticed, that theparasite.com is no longer there....
  • Brock Sampson
    # 831 - Dude, it's January. It's on the screen cause the movie is shot as if this group of people are catching it with their cams, and home cams have the date and time at the bottom. The 63 degrees is the clue. Or, it could just be 63 degrees. It has been getting warmer each year. # 830 - I thought I've heard every crack pot theory, but Nightmare on Elm St? I'm not even gonna respond to that one. # 837 - I was thinking of that too. Just because I'm a big Lost fan and on the Season Finale when they were doing the flash forward, the name of the funeral home was an anagram for flash forward. Maybe something there, but Cloverfield is the name of the street that Bad Robot's offices are on so it's probably just that.
  • Brock Sampson
    Just some more thoughts on the slusho.jp site. I'm starting to lean more toward the end of the world stuff. On the main page you have 6 bubble links, below that you have the phrase "bet ya can't drink just 6, and below that right before the asian writing there is a 6. Also every time I look at the times on the pics I keep thinking of Bible verses. I'm probably just taking shots in the dark at this point but we gotta try and cover everything right? Also the cups at the bottom HAVE to do with something. 4 of them full, 13 empty, 17 in all. Any thoughts?
  • Brock Sampson
    One last thing in regards to the Nightmare idea. I watched the trailer again and the guy with the hat is just some kid with a hat that looks a little like Kreuger's. It shows him before that talking to Rob. People wear hats like that all the time. And I'm out for the night. I've got ho's to score and beer to drink. Well.......beer to drink anyways.
  • alex
    so...........I am parying it's Godzilla casue...well i have been waiting for the 2nd one since the first one on 2000 (i think it was that year).....lol......but Voltron so far seems to be the leading character...if you notice...when everyone runs outside a man man says, "its a lion, Its huge" voltron waqs sometimes reffered as GoLion or lion voltron... not to mention his feline friends........so.. i dont know......most likely all of our theories r wrong.....it's probably really about Rabbits and butterflies......

    Great idea Josh! See comment 835 LOL

    um..so....i dont think it says lion.........i think he says...its ALIVE its huge....i dont know.....but.......okay...oh and i dont know fi this question was answered...i dont feel like reading even though i eventually will....who is this Ethan Haas character...and why is he right?

    # 835 The significance of the name CLOVERFIELD. is that it is the street in LA where JJ Abrahms office is. If you want to go look, it is near Olympic and Pico, Santa Monica Area.
  • Lexicon
    I found this post in another forum, and I think it touches some new and interesting territory about what the film's about. " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doomsday_Clock The number of minutes before midnight, a measure of the degree of nuclear, environmental, and technological threats, is updated periodically. The clock is currently set to five minutes to midnight, having been advanced by two minutes on January 17, 2007. I know we always look up what happens on January 18th, but we should be figuring out the night of the 17th! Since the bad stuff happens at around midnight on the 17th. The Doomsday Clock is referenced in Piers Anthony's novel, Wielding a Red Sword, in which the mythical Incarnation of War can control the position of the hands up to midnight and thereby bring about World War III. ^^ This fits in with the Pike Stuff. The clock illustrations used in the Watchmen graphic novel series is a reference to The Doomsday Clock. On page 18 of issue #1, a newspaper on Adrian Veidt's desk bears the headline "Nuclear Doomsday Clock Stands At Five To Twelve, Warn Experts". Issue 1, page 18?? Come on guys! I think this is definetly something that needs to be considered in some way."
  • JJJackson
    CLOVERFIELD was just one suggestion for an anagram. And who's to say, even though a physical address, it couldn't lead to a website? Many things in the video could be. What's with the guy saying "You owe me 11 dollars dude." That seems kinda forced. Numbers seem to play a big part in this. You can't drink just 6. What happens if you drink 7?
  • CrackV
    Everyone, i think that post number 847 may just finally have the answer. Doomsday clock does hold way too many concidences to be nothing. Night of the seventeenth is when the party starts, and last january seventeenth the doomsday clock was moved to five minutes to twelve. Notice the pictures start just after twelve o'clock AM on 1-18-08 website. As in, twelve was when it actually started. We cant see rob in the trailer, who knows if that pic of him drinking was right when the roar happened. Issue number 1 on page 18 the doomsday clock is mentioned as being at 5 to twelve, indicating upcoming doomsday. Issue 1! page 18! I think that this may just be the answer. oh, and u poor "alex...again...again" that question has been answerd so many times. Oh so many, in fact, i think that maybe hundreds of posts have answered that. Ethan Haas is an ARG, reportedly nothing to do with Cloverfield. You are new to this hunt of ours, arent you?
  • Crack V
    Damn, i had a big revelation about this movie earlier...cant remember now. I figured out how slusho was related...damn... oh, and has nobody recognised the fact that on Slusho! website, at history, the horse only goes through once, while all others respawn, and the horse and fish both have pics in thier thought bubbles. Cheese in the fish one, and a blue oven mit in the horse bubble. Just thought somebody should maybe try to put two and two together there...

    doug. the movie takes place in january cause on the pictures it says 1-18-08 and the time they were taken

    I firmly believe in the theory posted on comment 812 i think it was and i can not believe that i have been so blind. its so obvious
  • FRANKLIN
    i am a little disappointed but only because i did not think of it sooner. its all there. its gonna fit together nicely. small budget that wont be wasted on shots of the monster or advertisment. in fact, i was thinking about it earlier and i realized, if the makers of the movie had decided to make a bunch of trailers and not have it a big secret and payed all that money on advertisement the film would most likely have had LESS publicity! its genius
  • Brock Sampson
    I've tried to be open minded about this Doomsday Clock thing, But I personaly gotta shoot it down. Just because the whole Doomsday Clock is about man destroying ourselves with Nuclear war. I can't see the relation between countries at war and a giant monster, which we already know the movie is about. But, I've been wrong before.

    lexicon and crack v basically that theory from 847 i think is about that movie Miracle Mile right? if thats true you are saying nuclear bombs are roaring and throwing the statue of liberty head all over the place? i dunno.....

    # 858 - Do this for me please. Go to Google, type in voltron, click on the wikipedia link, scroll down to the bottom where it says movie, and read how another producer has already started on a live action Voltron movie. Now, since we know it's not Voltron, the monster being a giant lion would be pretty retarded huh? Also, lets give the Cthulu thing a rest. read all the post and you will discover we have already proven that a Cthulu movie has already been made and is set to release later this year. It has a website and everything.
  • jason
    It's NOT Godzilla! It's a completely different "roar"!!
  • Brock Sampson
    Yes. All things Godzilla have been suspended untill 2012 by Toho Japan. Also Toho and Sony/Tri Star are the only companies allowed to release a Godzilla movie. So let's please lay the Godzilla theory to rest as well.
  • jason
    i agree it's not Voltron b/c of rights BUT Cthulu is open - just b/c one company is doing THEIR version doesn't mean another can't do one of their one. Think of it as all those other "interpretations" done based on all of Edgar Allan Poe or Bram Stoker's Dracula. Not one company owns exclusive rights to Poe's library or Stoker's.

    we only shoot down godzilla, voltron and cthulu (sp?) theories because we know ITS NOT THAT u can go ahead and throw out any other theorie unless u think the movie is rampage godzilla voltron pokemon digimon dragonball z a giant worm a huge whale ghostbusters gigan smoke monster lochness monster orka some marvel comic hero http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orka_%28comics%29 if u think the movie is about any of that plz dont bother posting here

    listen theorist you seriously need to shut up you slearly have not been here from the beginning like most of us have ok? it can't be godzilla because PARAMOUNT DOES NOT OWN THE RIGHTS TO GODZILLA! WE HAVE DISCUSSED THIS REPEATEDLY! ok listen most of us have been talking for a while and have looked up info for a while so if we tell you we are postitive its not something it is not ok? for one its not godzilla cause someone else owns the rights and on top of that a godzilla in 3d is already being made so please....shut up
  • Rafe
    Lexicon #847 - I totally agree with figuring out what happened on the 17th. I actually touched on this at the end of #521 (though the beginning of my post was wrong). I think that theory is probably the best idea so far. Good job.

    haha im not even talking about godzilla.... im jsut saying allow people to voice an opinnion... thats the purpose of the thread

    yea but you are gonna voice your opinion and if we know the actual facts on the matter we will tell you but if we have our on opinions on the matter we will tell you that as well but the fact is a few of us have been on this thread from the beginning and we have heard all these things repeatedly and have discussed them and found out the truth.

  • co moe
    I think it's Cthulhu. I hope so because if it was done right it could simply eclipse and erase all memories of past monsters on film. Cthulhu is an invention of H.P. Lovecraft, the greatest horror writer of all time. Basically it's a cross between creature from the black lagoon, an octopus and God, but a God that is really quite very extra evil. Also big. Here is a description from Cthulhufiles: Cthulhu is of vaguely anthropoid outline, with a scaly, rubbery-looking, green, sticky, bloated body. The head is octopus-like, the face covered with tentacles or feelers. There are prodigious claws on the hind and fore feet. Two long, thin, rudimentary wings rise behind [127, 134, 152]. In a dream, Cthulhu appeared to be "miles high" [130] and was later compared to a "mountain" in size [152]. Did I mention hateful? Also hateful. The size means it could still be out in the ocean and destroying part of NY city while at the same time flinging Ms. Liberty's head (just the sort of thing Cthulhu would do, too). Here's a pic: http://www.tegehel.org/art/painting/paint32_giant_cthulhu.htm
  • Darren
    It's Godzilla with a different growl. The original growl would have given it away.
  • lennit
    ok, quick note again. Cthulhu is supposedly in the Pacific ocean, not the Atlantic. That's where R'lyeh is suppose to be located so yeah, Cthulhu would have to go a long way to get to NYC. Also, we're not confirmed that there's a monster attacking NYC. The first thing you assume is that something wants to rip it apart. When we were thinking it was possibly Voltron and people got angry and said it couldn't be because "why would voltron destroy NYC" I retorted with "Voltron could be fighting a monster and the destruction is just side casualties of the battle". But, we know it's not Voltron but I want to keep that way of thinking alive. This could be a ton of things, why pigeon-hole JJ Abrams and ourselves into a "monster movie"? "The Parasite" could easily mean "human beings" because we're parasites to the Earth. What if this is the Earth fighting back or something? That could explain the warm temperatures in January and all. All a theory, but seriously, let's not pigeon-hole ourselves into one way of thinking. We have eliminated possibilities, like Voltron or Godzilla, and that's all we can really be sure about.
  • Brock Sampson
    Let me break it down one last time then I'm ignoring them from here on out. # 865 & 881 - If one production company is making a movie then that means that company and only that company has the right to release it. Period. Examples: 1. When the movie Great White came out after Jaws and Paramount sued them and had them pull the movie and not make tapes or cd's ever. 2. The whole Armegeddon / Deep Impact & Volcano / Dante's Peak thing was about events that take place. Not a character that is owned and copywrighted. 3. If what your saying is true, I can go out and make my versions of the Star Wars prequels and not worry about George Lucas taking everything I have. 4. You guys are obviously Cthulhu fans, and that's fine, but go to the site for that movie and talk about it there. http://www.cthulhuthemovie.com/ # 882 - I think your just messing with us trying to get a rise out of everyone cause there is no way anyone can still think this is a Godzilla movie. Don't beleive me?

  • Leonard
    Someone somewhere else did some digging and found very interesting facts about Ethan Haas, Triton, and Mind Storm Labs. Mind Storm is allegedly putting together a table-top RPG that many have concluded was mixed up with Cloverfield--intentionally or accidentally. Anyway, read nighthawk's posting and then see if Ethan Haas isn't worth reconsidering. We'll find out something on August 1, but I doubt much will be revealed either way. This is way too early to start a marketing campaign this involved for a film that doesn't even come out until January.

  • Brock Sampson
    # 886 - Are you serious? I've seen very involved campaigns start a full year, sometimes more, before a movie is released. Independence Day, Godzilla remake, Episode 1, etc.
  • Leonard
    sorry about that last posting snafu. also, badrobot.com, as nighthawk says, is not the official site of bad robot, which is just jj abrams own site. badrobot.com, however, is hosted on the same facility as tritonenterprises, meaning it could even be in the same building. badrobot.com is allegedly authored by athena wickham (according to the source code), who is a "Creative Executive" for Bad Robot Productions. badrobot.com is, however, a legit site because the robot is an image owned by Bad Robot Productions, as is the site. If this whole campaign is Wickham's idea, she deserves another raise.
  • Dougrandy
    I checked out the link that Leonard sent in #886. I sent an e-mail to information@tritonenterprises.net and got this auto-reply: "Thank you for your interest in Triton Enterprises, where we are building the future one vision at a time. We here at Triton Enterprises take pride in our R&D and manufacturing abilities in aerospace and defense work. Our industry leading design in radiator retractor hoses and cold plate circuitry design is second to none. Triton Enterprises is also working on advanced R&D, stay tuned for more information as we make humanity better.

We will also be launching our secure website soon, then you'll be able to log in and learn more about our company. Triton Enterprises is also always looking for people to fill new roles at our company. Your adventure with us could begin soon. -- Triton Enterprises" Does this sound just the least bit odd to anyone? How about that statement about making humanity better? Too strange...
  • Leonard
    Sorry, 887, I didn't explain what I meant to say, which is that this is way to early to start a viral marketing campaign, then reveal everything in August or whatever. Kinda defeats the purpose since keeping the buzz alive is going to be critical. I don't think the real gist of the film will be known until the Fall, if we ever know what the film is actually about before it comes out. At the same time, they have to reveal more trickles of information or people are going to get frustrated or bored.
  • Brock Sampson
    # 891 - I agree 100% with you there. The thing is that nothing will be revealed about this movie an August 1st. At least not by the people making it anyways. Aug 1st is from the stupid eathanhass site which JJ himself has said has nothing to do with them. That's pretty much as clear as it gets. That site I believe has to do with something else. I'd bet the farm on it.
  • Leonard
    Yes it is strange, though it does appear to be a real company that claims to make the holders for mag-lights. Also, for sleuths, it's tritonenterprises.net, not .com--the latter is a legit contractor and they're probably already wondering what the hell is going on. Why would the real steve king complain about too much traffic and stupid postings on tossinggames, when all he'd have to do is remove parasitemovie and close the blog? That same posting above 774) appears in several blogs now. Still awaiting an explanation from someone, anyone, as to why Paramount was able to pull the Van mantra videos from youtube (though they are back now). The explanation that they might have had "cloverfield" in the titles is a non-starter because a word like "cloverfield", which is the name of a street in LA, is not copyrightable. Also, why has no one explained how parasitemovie, in the source code, says Cloverfield revealed August 1, 2008 12:36 when the site, with this message, appeared on July 7--two days before the second photo appeared on 1-18-08 with the 12:36 AM time stamp. Could it be read tri-ton enterprises, i.e., three ton? If related, this may be an oblique reference to "small whales". Probably a stretch. Anyway, if all this ethan haas stuff is really related to a stupid tabletop rpg, it would be the most amazing thing about this trip so far. Somehow, I doubt that's what's going on. Perhaps the RPG is not a real one, but something that plays a role in the movie itself.

    do any of you realize the fact that jj could be lying to allof us and the ethanhaas site could be involved with his project i mean were else would ethanhaas get thos epics rom on the site i dont htink he jsut blew them out his ass and you think theyd go through all that time jsut do have some fake site to sponser their sitre? i dotn think so maybe this is a distraction so that kids wont find otu the actual secret or maybe its the actual thing and jj's lying to us about it being fake either way it is involved with this thing

Why would you ever shoot a film relating to those topics realistic (hand held) like that? It just wouldn't be believable. Also if it was Pokemon I'd think the main character would be named Ash not Rob... (Pokemon is just a stupid idea anyways)
  • Its called freedom of speech
    ITs Godzilla. I know it. Its gonna be godzilla. I for one know. And for all those who say its not. Prove it. Paramount release a movie call Gigantis the fire monster. This movie was Godzilla raids again. Now who has the rights to a godzilla film. Sony had the rights to make a film from toho. In the same way Paramount still has the right to do the same. So thats out of the window. The Godzilla 3d movie. Thats for Imax. For all those experts who say "STFU YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT IVE BEEN HERE FOREVER AND I KNOW WHAT THIS FILM IS
  • kenny
    Why is everyone assuming the whole movie will be shot using hand held cameras? It seems the guy with the camera is making a going away party movie for his friend to take to Japan. How does this correlate to the whole movie being a Blair Witch style movie?

    OK - Go to the slusho.org website, then go to the anti-christ website, then go to the romans 1:18 comments. In there is a very suspicious back-and-forth dialogue between templeator (who has posted here and is most likely just a normal person) and a poster called aria step. Aria step, of course, is an anagram for PARASITE. Aria step says there is no connection to Ethan Haas. Really weird. Aria step also posts a phrase in latin that seems to say that the revelation is that God is pretty angry about man's impeity, inability to be truthful and will not hold back. Here's they way I see it - after sorting through all of what's currently out there, 2 major threads break out: Thread 1 - Parasite Movie / Tossing Games / Van Mantra / Triton Enterprises / Mezin Thread 2 - 1-18-08 / ABZ3293 / slusho.jp / anti-christ There's intertwining between the two, primarily through the dates 8-1-07 and 1-18-08 There is NOTHING out there on any of the official or quasi-official websites that would suggest any known monster is the Statue of Liberty head-thrower. And can someone kill the Pokemon poster? Its either gonna be a Biblical or secular apocalypse movie with a new monster/villain we have never seen before.

    ABZ = Albendazole, a chemical to treat worm infestations (aka) parasite killer 3293 = star cluster The story on Slusho.jp describes of something that enjoys eating delicious fruits, gaining weight, and eventually dieing. This is an overall metaphor for the Cloverfield movie. Stating that ppl who gorge themselves with sweets (aka) sex, temptations, lies, and impure thoughts will eventually bring upon chaos and havic. In this case, it would be a monster that is portrayed in the movie. The so-called monster feeds off of the sweets/negatives. More will come later.

  • Brock Sampson
    You know, we have proven that it's not Godzilla, Voltron, Pokemon, Evangelion, Cuthulu, orver and over again. It's like I said in an earlier post, the Godzilla fanboys are gonna say it's a Godzilla film no matter who proves it. God himself could part the sky and say it's not, JJ could show up at their door and say it's not, and the first thing they will do is say....I still think it's Godzilla. We just have to ignore these guys from here on out. I mean Toho is who created the damn thing and they have said themselves that all GZ things have been retired untill 2013 and these guys still go on about it. I'm not even gonna respond to these post anymore and I suggest the rest of you do the same cause we are not gonna figure it out by going over these stupid theories over and over again.

  • CrackV
    To #919, chill man. The girl in the story didnt get fat, they called her the smallest whale because she was drinking so much. Yes, i know whales dont drink tons of water and stuff, but they swallow up tons of it when they feed. It doesnt mean that "those who gorge themselves in unholly things shall face the wrath of god". It would be suicide for JJ Abrams to make a movie about obeying the path god has layed out. Thats just stupid really. And, um, it isnt a monster that eats bad stuff. I mean, it blew up New York, its just a giant freaking monster. Stop trying to analyze the slusho stuff, really, it may be something more, but it wont be something like a deep moral comparison. Its a fun site thats a tribute to something that JJA has known about for a while. Its probably an inside joke, stuff JJ and other guys from Alias joked about for a long time, then said "hey, lets put that on a guys shirt", so they did. I mean, im sure that theres a hint in there somewhere, but yeah, thats taking it a bit too far. Focus on the deep sea aspect, or the fact that the key ingredient is actually a deadly deep sea substance that would make you swell up and explode. THINK ABOUT THIS, WHY IS THERE A HORSE UNDERWATER THINKING ABOUT OVEN MITS!!!!!!!!!!
  • Brock Sampson
    As of right now, I'm still leaning toward the revelation, end of the world idea. Although I think Sector 7 has something in his post 921. I still thing that that site is one of the sites assoc. with the movie somehow.
  • Joel
    Maybe the whole movie isn't shot hand held like that. But those of you who think it would be crappy hand held its no where near like Blair Witch... Blair Witch was a total low budget film with crappy night vision, and video quality of a cheap $200 camera. Like I've said before even though it is being shot hand held the quality of the image isn't anywhere near an ordinary camcorder someone would have to make a "going away" video.
  • Leonard
    Sector 7 did a good job finding those glosses on ABZ and 3293 (though almost any combination of four digit numbers can be related to some astronomical object). ABZ=Albendazole is definitely an interesting discovery. #916, there's nothing in the source code for 1-18-08.com itself; were you able to crack the flash? To be fair to Chris, who previously posted the Pokemon stuff--he never said he thought it was a pokemon movie and he said about fifty times that it was not. He said that what he believed to be an indirect reference to Pokemon, through the name "Satoshi" at slusho.jp, had a cthulhu connection, whcih in and of itself is correct--there are Pokemon monsters that are loosely based upon cthulhu mythos. Unfortunately, there are hundreds of cthulhu references in hundreds of comics and monster/horror films, so that by itself doesn't prove anything. I believe the answers to the Cloverfield mystery are not going to be that attenuated--after all, he doesn't just want geeks like us to figure it out. There simply are not enough legitimate clues to peice this thing together yet. Right now, it's like guessing what a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle is going to look like when we've only got a handful of pieces; and some of them may belong to another puzzle. All of us are transferring our wishes/fears onto whatever this monster is (kinda like the "id" monster in Fobidden Planet); could it be that this is exactly as intended, that the characters in the movie would be doing the same thing? Maybe the monster is the sum our our collective imaginations come to life to kick our collective butts? Even if it were Godzilla or Cthulhu or something entirely different, it is something completely reimagined by JJA and the minds at badrobot.

  • Leonard
    Oh well. Final recap, unless this Board comes alive again, for those who are new to this and don't want to waste time figuring out the basics of the Cloverfield ARG: Official sites: http://www.1-18-08.com This is verified if for no other reason than the fact that they have now posted three photos that appear to be from the film. Contrary to some claims, including my own mis-recollection, the site url is not listed at the end of the trailer. http://www.slusho.jp Appears to be a legit site. Slusho is a code name for the film, and it has been alleged that persons on the set wear tags saying "Slusho! You can't drink just one!" which is a tagline abundant on the website. Possibly related sites: ethanhaaswasright.com This site appeared on July 5, the same date that 1-18-08 first appeared. It contains a well-crafted ARG as well as several intentionally poor quality video messages. It has been related to the Cloverfield ARG on account of the fact that the videos were posted anonymously on youtube then subsequently removed by Paramount Pictures, citing copyright infringement. Ethan Haas is also the name of a character in the cancelled tv series "The Class" which starred Lizzy Kaplan--Ms. Kaplan is confirmed as a cast member of the Cloverfield film. Throughout the ARG, August 1, 2007 is cited as a significant date, after which there will be thirty (30) days to respond. JJA has allegedly disclaimed any connection with the ethan haas sites. http://www.parasitemovie.com No longer available. This was the first site to use the term "parasite" and make a deliberate connection to the film through an obscured reference to both the Cloverfield movie and a site called tossinggames.com. In the blogs at tossinggames, there were also the first blog references to the ethan haas sites connecting them with cloverfield. parasitemove.com has since been removed, and it now redirects to 1-18-08; the blogs referencing ethan haas and cloverfield have since been removed from tossinggames. Interestingly, however, the webmaster of parasitemovie and tossinggames (steven king) is an administrator of one of the (many) ethan haas sites. http://www.mindstormlabs.com A purported game-design company, it has no known products on the market and is related to Cloverfield for no other reason than the fact that one of the background images on ethanhaaswasright.com has a small portion that looks like a pic posted at Mind Labs advertising a to-be-released tabletop RPG called Alpha Omega. It is registered to tritonenterprises.net, which purports to be a defense contractor, though there is no such contractor listed at any US government websites (all defense contractor contact information is, by law, public information).

    I took the third picture into photoshop and played around with the color balance. I noticed something weird in the background. http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a126/hoopspro123/11808slug.jpg To me it sorta looks like maybe some kind of giant slug? I think i see some antennae. I don't know. Just thought I'd link it here and get. I also found a site selling T-shirts related to the movie. I don't know how long this guy can sell them for before he has to take them down, or gets sued... Some of them are actually pretty clever. http://www.cafepress.com/11808/
  • Leonard
    Lexicon, how'd you strip the photos from the flash? Did you just take a screen shot? Also, anyone know where I can view a full youtube or wmv version of the clip? Everyone I've seem lately cuts off just when the first "roar" is heard. All I have is dial up and I don't have till next month to wait for the QT to load. What I've been thinking is that the first "roar" isn't a roar at all--it's a very loud, low instrument, such as an ancient ram's horn.

    yeah, we don't have much to go on now so I can see why this is getting silent. How about some "hacking" in a sense...hahaha...no, not actual hacking, but brute force discovery. We have the original picture from the 1-18-08 available to us here http://www.1-18-08.com/1-18-08.jpg The other two pictures have to be on the server too...I wonder what their names are. I tried the names from a post above saying they're "live on the set" pictures, but they're not right (looks like a really good screen shot and that's it) I tried "wewillmissyou.jpg" and "attack.jpg" but they didn't work. Now, for the people who don't understand this, just type in "http://www.1-18-08.com/" and then try to guess the name of the other two pictures. That could maybe give us a better quality picture than our screen shots. just remember to have the ".jpg" at the end of your file name guess. Also, this has been noted before but I want to bring it out there again. The guy who's giving Rob the drink in the 2nd picture is the one in the Slusho! T-shirt. You can kind of make out the Slushie Cup and the blue letters for "Slusho!" on his shirt. and oh, if the last two pictures have given us a trend to follow expect Picture #4 to be up THIS THURSDAY (July 19th) at 5:00PM Central. The last two pictures were posted around 5PM Central the past 2 Thursdays so I have a strong feeling that we'll get the next one on the 19th

    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 .

    ... also google parasite eve. its a novel based in japan that was made into a game for playstion. the game also takes place in nyc. a movie came out in japan of the same name.. cloverfield could be a doing remake or something.. from wikipedia.com Parasite Eve is the name of a Japanese novel by Hideaki Sena, first published in Kadokawa Horror Bunko, which has been adapted into a 1997 film and a 1998 video game for the Sony PlayStation by Squaresoft. A sequel to the game was released in 1999, also for the PlayStation. "The story of the novel and movie revolve around a geneticist whose research in mitochondria causes him to take extreme measures to revive his wife, and eventually leads to the creation of a new threat to all mankind. The scientific basis for the story is the endosymbiotic theory: mitochondria were originally free-living bacteria, which coevolved with host cells to become mutually interdependent. The fictional premise is that mitochondria are able to rebel and to develop unusual capabilities. In addition, scientists traced mitochondrial DNA, which is inherited matrilineally, to a single woman in Africa. They dubbed her, "Mitochondrial Eve." This report appeared in "Nature" in 1987." read my previous post about googleing revelations 18 8 "For this reason in one day her plagues will come, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong" revelations 18 8 "..and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades" revelations 1 18 im not entirely sure how the roaring sound could be related but who knows..

    I' torn. I'm almost tired of this movie-within-a-riddle and am finding it very hard to care when we now know that X-Files 2 is on its way! Seriously tho...I was reading over the newest posts and got sad. Sad because it's really horrible that movies have gotten so lame that we automatically assume that the next BIG movie will be a frigging remake or an adaption of a book or comic or toyline. Whatever happened to original ideas and thoughts? I knew this was coming as soon as they did a remake of Psycho. It's terrible...even worse today; Rob Zombie is remaking Halloween???....jesus. what the hell? Why are you gonna tread on sacred ground. I truly hope that this Abrams flick IS an original idea so we'll have something fresh to see. Anyway,,,end of rant.

I've been lingering in the corner since nearly day one and I've decided to weigh in. As my area's unofficial expert in everything LOST, I think there's a good chance this movie will do for movies what LOST did for tv. I would be sad if this were anything mentioned above, sans Cthulhu. It just doesn't add up that the man-who-can-do-no-wrong JJ Abrams, who has carte blanch to make any kind of movie he wants... and he makes Voltron (Godzilla, blah blah)? No way. You nearly never saw it coming on LOST and you surely will not see it coming this January. I like the biblical, revelations, Cthulhu, etc ideas. I've always had similar ideas about LOST, like what I think is going on, Majik, powers, etc. I showed this preview to some friends and the people who's opinions I respect all had the same reaction I did: Holy Shit! But a lot of people were unimpressed. So it got me thinking: This movie is either going to change movie making as we know it, or the public will not get what they wanted out of it (see the monster, see the blood) and make a joke out of it (the evening news will ruin the plot on the 19th, Jay Leno's regurgitated jokes about it, box office bomb). Also, people at the movies when transformers opened... they had mixed reactions about the preview. I am going to choose to deal with the DBs who chose to yell out "ghay!" after seeing the preview the same way I deal with people who badmouth LOST: You just aren't smart enough to understand what is happening. You haven't thought about it enough, you haven't read enough good literature, the right types. The reason people won't like this movie is the same reason LOST isn't doing as well as it should be: They won't get it. They wanna see explosions and monsters ripping off heads. But I have a feeling you won't see this monster at all. So prove me wrong JJ, don't give the people what they want! CAUTION EPIC FILM COMING SOON

    No comments on Orka... the Human Killer Whale?
  • slusho...what is that even...i saw some comments about it but thought of the shushy drinks you get at the 7-11.... i believe the chtulhu stuff...even though i have NEVER heard anything about that.... i tried to ask my friend who is in the movie something about it...give me a hint...he couldnt say...just said he had a part of the movie. on a brighter note the transformers all spark is up for bid on ebay...so is bumblebee as well as other stuff from the movie...if i had the $$$ i would so bid on it!!!!

    # 961 - Dude, I agree with ya. That's why movies are not as good as they used to be. Sacary movies aren't scary cause it's just senseless gore and people stoping to make out when the should be gettin the f' out of dodge. Big budget movies that are just CG destruction but no story. Everyone wants a movie with a new look, and when they get it they hate it cause it's not like the other senseless crap. Not enough buildings blowing up, I wanted to see that guys head get ripped off, and so on. Anywho, I think (and hope) this movie is going to be original and not made from something from a book or another movie. That, plus the fact that it will be shot from the pov of these kids will be great cause we have not seen a monster movie like this before and we need something original. Also, Lost is my fav show ever!
  • I really am amazed at the amount of people who have been leaving their theories in the repository: http://ethanhaasthoughts.blogspot.com/ come by and leave yours.....we will find this together
  • Local
    I think that He is being very careful about what he reveals, and when it is revealed. The ONLY way that anyone is going to figure out the EXACT plotline is from a Leak on set. I can tell that someone with correct information is leaking. They better be careful, and re read the Non Disclosure Statement. It states that you will be responsible for DAMAGES, that means MONEY! Is it really worth it to get blacklisted in Hollywood for revealing information? I have a friend that was arrested for taking hidden pictured on one of the batman movies.
  • Leonard
    The New York Post had an article about the movie today. There was some on-location shooting going on at Coney Island with JJA & crew--so much for the theory that all of it is shot in LA. There is a possible spoiler in the article, so beware. I say "possible" because I doubt the goober who was interviewed really had any idea what was going on, though he did say something that I and several others have guessed--the vids are a flashback, maybe all that's left after "everyone dies". Personally, I'm starting to doubt the $30M figure. The preview alone would have cost at least a mill and a single episode of Lost last year cost over $14M (which I believe is a record for a tv episode). Add the on-location shots (which costs several million what with bringing in a crew, NY union wages, etc.) and the budget of $30M will be spent by next week. Couple other thoughts. The "thunderous roar" may not be a roar at all--is is mechanical, or possibly a horn of some sort? I listened to samples of a Shofar (Israelite horn used in battles, also said to presage Armageddon), but it's much to high-pitched; unless it was slowed down and reversed. Does anyone know how to rip the sounds from these things so it can be analyzed? P.S. I am not the leonard who thinks this may be a super hero thing--I think that idea's a bit absurd and would not be in keeping with JJA's original thought processes (which is why he shouldn't be blamed for crapola like MI3).

    Who wants to watch a movie mostly shot through a home video camera. OH and The more you all talk about this movie the more FREE publicity it gets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Tim
    In regards to 892, that is because Steven King isn't posting those reports that ParasiteMovie.com has nothing to do with the movie. Someone else is. Duh, this is a given. Go to the parasite movie site now and you'll see the trailer. JJ's doing this for a REASON folks! Duh!!!!
  • Keith
    I KNEW It! Believe it or not, I always had the feeling that someone was watching this footage from a VCR/DVD player after all the destruction was over. I have read almost all, and have skimmed over about 200-250 comments. It is pretty crazy that with all the brains looking for info on the net. Nobody has positively confirmed a source. (Not being rude, Im more in awe). I really agree with what 927, 948, 954 and 954 had to say. I am one of few who still enjoy a movie for a movie sake. I still enjoy a "shoot em' up bang", but Id rather watch a movie that makes me think and my spine tingle. The ORKA comment had me thinking too. I REALLY HOPE THIS IS A NEW CHARACTER. later yall
  • wrks
    I think it's freakin hilarious when geeks try to rip apart someone who is moderately curious and comes to a thread to just voice their opinion of what a movie might be without voice analysis, super hi-def resolution enhanced pics, etc.... Get a grip, it's a thread. Go get laid and try not to hang on every post on this thread. lololol. P.S.- I hope to God it's Godzilla so you can all shut your mouth!
  • A-God
    I think its more hilarious that "wrks" was able to find this website. It is hypocritical of you to to "rip" other comments, since your comment is the first negative one I've seen yet. Maybe you need to get a "grip" because this is a thread created on buzz from a movie that has focused around clues for ppl to express their opinions on, but not yours. I am acutally a geek who fights fires and saves lives for a living. But try not to get your feelings hurt, since this is just a "moderate" look at my opinion. P.S. I hope to God it is not Godzilla, so you can all keep on talking. Ppl are waiting for comment 1000, Im waiting for comment 10000.lol
  • nick
    when this moie comes out i cant wait to come bac on here and LMFAO at all u ppl who thought it was godzilla you guys will look like such idiots lol
  • Rick
    DO NOT let this thread turn ugly. This thread is just supposed to be fun and for people who have an interest in talking about what this movie and what it might be. I appreciate the time and effort, right or wrong, that people put into "looking for clues". I cant believe the anger some people get just because they think someone else is wrong. For all we know every single one of us is wrong. I say, if you think it, find it, are guessing it, want it to be........post it on here. If you dont agree with what someone says, who cares, put what you think it is, but there is no reason to shit on someone else or thier time. Everyone found this page and made it to this point because they all have the same common goal in mind, to find out what this movie is and to talk about it. If you want to call names and get off subject, goto a yahoo room with the teenagers and pervs. If you dont have something nice to say .....you know the rest.
  • Merl
    I agree with Rick, I've now seen 4 or 5 threads, which were originally very informative, turn to immature ranting. If you disagree with someone, say it, don't start yelling and insulting people...save that for after the movie comes out and we have no use for this thread.
  • Matthew
    I noticed that no one was talking about this article that was posted back in 946, but here is the link http://www.9news.com/life/entertainment/news/article.aspx?storyid=73653 If true, it can't be anything but Cthulhu, or something totally new. It removes most other options at this point.
  • Okay, I mention this awhile back at a huge rottentomatoes thread, but now I've seen the wikipedia article about Orka, and the connections are too close to not think about. The 'sea horse' on slusho thinks of a blue oven mitt, a very unique thing. When you look that up, you get 'Orka' oven mitts, when look up Orka, you get the a gigantic human whale, which is exactly what Ganu's slusho ingredient allowed him to turn into. I can't see this monster making a cool movie compared to a cthulu or leviathan, so maybe it's all a red herring, but just too neat a circle to be an accident. AND......they are set to announce the name of the movie at a Comic book convention? C'mon!
  • Rafe
    I just mentioned that KidReviewer... read a little bit before you post. BUT, I didn't know that about revealing the name a comic book convention, that's cool.
  • sorry, Rafe. Hattips to you and other sleuths of course. I came to the same thoughts separately, but it was until I saw your link to the wikipedia article that I saw the actual comic book cover. I've been reading a ton all over, but had just found this thread, which is great. When I saw the description on the book cover, and compared it to the slusho quote below, and thought about the comic con link, i got excited. Don't want to upset the cart. Carry on. "And as he did drink lots and lots of the ingredient, Ganu grew from a small fish into an enormous whale!!!"
  • MIKE
    I work 3 blocks in S.D. DOWNTOWN where the COMIC CON CONVENTION holds its convention. I have someone going to this event & I have instructed to please get follow ups with J.J. Or any press related info that he can gather about the movie. "keep posted for updates"
  • Rafe
    ah, no prob Kid... i'm not looking for credit, just trying to keep people from posting duplicate info.

  • Brock Sampson
    I've been hanging back for a couple of days but I gotta jump back in here. I'm not buying this whole Orka thing. I'm not saying it won't be, just saying I don't see it. It just doesn't make sense. One, to me, it's a retarded comic character. And I like to think I have some say seeing I've been a comic book nut most of my life and have over 3 thousand books. Two, if your gonna do a comic book guy, you wanna do one that is known and somewhat popular. Some would say doing one that was not popular or well known is what would make it original, but I say just doing something that has already been created and established isn't original. I will say that the sound the monster makes does sound a little like a whale thing. Again, not saying it isn't, just saying I don't get it.
  • locotezz
  • Rick
    I do not think you will see something that smells of Lost, ie...no monster, bad ending, cliffhanger. If JJ wanted that, it would clearly be a Lost movie and it is not. If he is going to do a movie like Lost....he will purposely make a Lost Movie which I think he probably intends to do. But this isnt it nor will it be like it for that very reason, he is saving that. I believe there is a chance this movie is an adaptation of something that is already been done.....(heres where the eyes roll) Godzilla or not Godzilla but one of the monsters from a Godzilla movie. It could also be Voltron or or something to that effect. Just because I say Godzilla or Voltron or whomever doesnt mean I think JJ would do a carbon copy.....I have said that before....his adaptation of one of these or one of the other suggestions could be VERY different from the traditional school of thought on what those ideas are. I think they purposely put the trailer at the beginning of the Transformers movie because that is the same audience they are looking for. It the movie was going to be revelations or something they would have coupled it with something more along those lines in theater attendance. As for the marketing, if you want to sell a sci-fi, alien, monster, big robot movie to people....you show market it to people who are in a theater to see another sci-fi, alien, monster, big robot movie. You dont put the trailer before Driving Miss Daisy or a chick flick. I bet this is much more simple then being made out to be by all of us cyber sleuths.....lol.
  • Rafe
    Brock #989... i totally agree with you, but like i said before i think this whole "Orka" thing would, more less, just be a clue and not so much what it is exactly about.
  • Rick
    OK, this is interesting. I decided to see if I could find any clues by watching the 1998 Godzilla trailer (more eye rolling). I went to IMDB.com and just put Godzilla in the search bar. As most of you know you get a results page with all the Godzilla movies that have on file at that point. I clicked the 1998 American film. From there you get the information page with some options at the top, one of which is that you can click to watch the movie trailer. When you do this, there is "next trailer" header to show you what is next in the que...guess what it is......its the new Transformers. SO....IF you watch the old Godzilla trailer, the new Transformers is what comes next. I love grasping for straws but that is an interesting coincidence. Who posts the IMDB information? I cleared my cookies and deleted my settings, history and files and did it a second time just to make sure and it is what came up both times I tried it.
  • Rafe
    Also, I forgot to mention... now that we have an idea of what the blue oven mitt is I have been trying to focus on the fish thinking of the swiss cheese. All I've really done so far is tried to cross-reference it with the Orka thing. Since the orka was indirectly including Atlantis, i tried to find a relation between that and Switzerland (remembering the guy in the trailer supposedly wearing the shirt/jacket with SWITZERLAND on it). Other than that I'm still looking. If anybody has an idea of what the cheese might mean, post it. Another idea is that these clues we are finding dont necessarily have to do with the movie itself (ORKA and hopefully one for the swiss cheese) but may just lead us to another website of JJ's. I'm also trying to figure out a what's up with the slusho cups at the bottom of the site. The only think I can think of is numbers (somekind of numbering code or pattern). Just for the record, one thing I tried.... there are 17 cups total so I counted the number of letters next to them in "You Can't Drink Just Six" and 17 letters is the first 4 words, excluding the word Six. So then I took the letters that would fall on the cups that were full - CIKJ. I rearranged them into JICK. Googled JICK and it was some other online RPG. Thought it was random that it just happened to be something legit, BUT the amount of analyzing I did is WAY beyond what I would usually do, and quite frankly I think is a bit ridiculous. Anyway, that's what I've been up to. Some of it is probably useless but at least I've been trying something.
  • Rick
    Good job Rafe. ..... that is what I was talking about earlier. This is all in fun and we all have a common goal, right or wrong, to see who can 'crack the code'....LOL....if there even is one....lol. We might have been given just enough to make us go on a wild goose chase for something that is incredibly simple. What if the trailer is something that someone in the actual movie is just watching on tv. That would be a hoot.
  • Rafe
    I realized that in my 17 letter explaination (#995) I included the apastrophy in my count. If you don't include it and just skip over it, then you get CNJU..... if anyone wants to try and make something out of that.
  • Brock Sampson
    Now that I have some time, here is what I would like to do. (settle in this could take a min) I would like to take everything we have found out and cross ref it somehow. Different people from claiming to be with paramount have said some things, but lets take a deeper look at some of the things that have been mentioned. 1. Alien attack 2. Comic Con Allthough I don't think revealing the tittle at the Comic Con means it is going to be from a comic book, (ie THE 1st Star Wars was promoted at Comic Con back in 76 cause that was the audience they knew would be interested in that type of movie) just for the hell of it we should look for comics that were about an attack by aliens or a giant alien. 3. "I saw it, It's alive, It's huge!" 4. The roar One person claiming to be with Paramount said that the biggest clue from the trailer was the phrase "I saw it, It's alive, It's huge!" What I get from that phrase being a clue is the It's alive part. It's almost like he saw something familiar, but it was something that wasn't supposed to be alive. Stupid example - You see a statue in the park start walking down the street and smacking buildings. You think OMG! That statue, It's alive! Also he said another big clue was the roar, and also that the monster was an organic living thing. Organic is something from the earth right? What organic thing would sound like that? Well, these sources could be full of shit, but looking into this is better then argueing the Godzilla thing over and over......and over. What do you guys think? I would love to figure this out before JJ tells us what it is, just because of pride. Yeah I suffer from it.
  • Brock Sampson
    Also, to hit on something Rafe mentioned. The numbers! There are way too many numbers associated with this not to mean something. The dates, times, plate #, etc. Let us not forget, when most of us hear the phrase "The Numbers", we think of 4 8 15 16 23 42. It's from Lost. Lost is made by JJ Abrams. I'm in no way saying this is a Lost Movie. I'm sure it's not. Just saying the numbers have to be a clue leading us further.
  • ok i started this with post # 77....Ryan Key in this movie….lead singer of Yellowcard...so far i think that is the only person i can name in it....
  • Brock Sampson
    Congratulations, you hit the 1000 mark, even though thats a weird post. Scratches head.
  • bored
    the person who posted comment 525 said channel 1 doesn't exist, but there is NY1 website....dont know if it has anything to do with the film, just found it interesting. and anyone thought about searching for earthquakes.....cus after all thats what it says on the screen EARTHQUAKE?
  • Just for fun -- , there are four full slusho cups in the footer, (and blue oven mitt is 3 sets of four letters, for what it's worth). Ths site is .jp, and here's something about Japanese unlucky numbers: "The Japanese don't like the number 4 and 9 because of their pronunciation. Four is pronounced "shi" which is the same pronunciation as death. Nine is pronounced "ku" which has the same pronunciation as agony or torture. There are many hospitals that don't have these numbers as the room number or even the floor number. The Japanese also dislike Friday the13th, though many of them are not Christians. There are no seats with numbers 4, 9 and 13 on passenger planes of the All Nippon Airways." The realy number the bugs me is six though. You can't drink just six. Does that mean something happens at 7? It's the weirdest thing to say. Has anyone translated the Japanese letters in the footer?
  • MrJoe83
    Hey, haven't posted in a while, just been watching but after the newest update, I'm willing to bet good money on three things about this movie: 1. The monster is 100% created by J.J. Abrams. No remake or adaptation of any kind. Though I haven't really followed any of the Orka stuff yet. 2. We will NOT see the monster in this movie. If you're as big a fan of LOST as I am, you will agree with me. 3. The ending of the movie will probably piss you off and leave you wanting more right away, just like the ending of EVERY episode of LOST. P.S. - On Best Week Ever, I love how they mentioned that Pokemon was one of the theories for this movie...stupid.
  • From Wikipedia. As I think Rafe mentioned, I don't think THE monster is related to orka, I think at this point most clues will just point to another jj site, and that's what I'd like to find. Thinking about swiss, (as the fishy does). Uses of the words 'swiss cheese' from wikipedia: Swiss cheese (mathematics), a compact subset of the complex plane Swiss Cheese model, a model of accident causation Swiss Cheese model (cosmology), a model used to to describe the large-scale structure of the cosmos, devised by Albert Einstein and E.G. Straus
  • Rafe
    I think the letters at the footer are just the number "6" in other languages.
  • JJJackson
    Brock, just for clarification, "organic" does not mean from the earth. Its relates to living organisms. organic : of, relating to, or derived from living organisms at least in the sense they were using it. Granite is from the earth, but not organic. Again, just a clarification. God forbid, I'm not bitching!
  • big jim
    well, what we have to realise is that....uhh..i dono, i have no wisdom in me tonight.....well, what i want to say is i guess-i think there will be at LEAST 10 more related sites uncovered, and each one will help unlock one or more features on the root site(which i believe to be slusho). also, i thik that the site with all the numbers in it(sorry, im to tired and i dont want to butcher it, you know the one i mean) is just a site to help us onlock one of the slusho sections.....

    I don't see why it would be so unusual for someone to scream anything along the lines 'OMFG IT'S ALIVE ITS HUGE!" in such a context as demonstrated in the video - even if it were in reference to a living, organic monster. Saying "It's ALIVE" means it's an animated, living thing. That's an important message, that really gets the point across in a hurry. If I were in New York City, at nighttime and all I could see was some monster-sized creature that I didn't know WTF was, I would likely scream stuff very similar to that.

    No Way You can definately see a dinosaur head at 1:30 of the trailer
  • Rick
    This is my take on the "its alive its huge" thing. Sometimes when I listen I hear lion....other times....alive. I am fairly sure he says alive....old debate ...I know....moving on. To me this phrase says a couple things. First, whatever he sees is something that was either not suposed to be alive in the first place (some inanimate object like a building, statue, meteor, glass of slusho, Donald Trumps hair, etc.) or something that was thought to be dead that is not anymore (reanimate or create your own movie monsters for this one). Secondly, it is something that this guy either a) has never seen before and his "on the run" description is simply that its huge or b) he is shocked by the fact it is bigger then the preconcieved notion of what he thought it was or its way bigger then he knew it was before. Thats my 2 cents on that....morph it how you like.....lol.

  • i know this means nothing for our search, but it's really creepy that there is a band from 'Switzerland' called The Monsters, and they have a pic on their punk band site with a label saying 100% Whale Approved. They look legit, but still a weird thing to find. Add to it six japanese letters for their site counter. http://www.themonsters.ch/Gifs/knoedel1.jpg or google "switzerland monsters"
  • MrJoe83
    Maybe it's the Blue Whale from The Museum of Natural History. It's a pretty well known exhibit so seeing it would make somebody say "It's alive" like they know what they're seeing and they know it's something that shouldn't be "alive".
  • Reyna
    Has anybody heard about the Kakoey or Katoey monster. It might be connected to the movie.
  • Ox
    Holy crap. PJ, I see what you are talking about. It has a sort of dinosaur shape to it, but I don't want to make that call. More importantly when you watch it that close several times, somethings dawns on you. The Liberty head is clearly being "spit out" or something like that from that area. It's way too far from where the Statue is to be propelled. There's gotta be something there, it makes sense.
  • PJ
    Thanks Ox, I was also looking at 1 minute 25 seconds on the trailer.... it shows a closeup of the same area,,,, but just for a split second,,, you can see somethng moving in the same area, not quite as clear as at 1:30
  • Flagg79
    I think I found the purpose of the fish think of CHEESE from the slusho website. If you go to http://www.slushozoom.com it looks like there's nothing of importance there except another link to Slusho. But if you click on the image of the Statue of Liberty, it takes you HERE: http://www.ciakids.com/forkids/kitchen/france/fr_cheese.html A site about cheese? Really? While this seems FAR AWAY from anything to do with the movie, it HAS linked Slusho to the Statue of Liberty/NY. Why would the slushozoom site use the Statue of Liberty as a link to a page about cheese? The cheese is called Neufchatel cheese. I guess now I'll be looking up what neufchatel means. Any thoughts?
  • PJ
    I was looking closer at 1:30 the Liberty head seems to come from above or behind the creatures head.... curious... multiple monsters??
  • Sue
    Hmmm ... well Flagg, Neufchatel is a type of cheese... French cheese.... im not sure that is helpful... But have you read post 1018? I think PJ is onto something!! you really need to check the trailer out again!!!
  • Flagg 79
    Okay...I rushed through things...I think there's A LOT to be found at http://www.slushozoom.com. All of the links there seem to give clues to the movie. Everyone should give it a look. There are even some really bizarre quotations there that seem to go along with the film.
  • Alexa
    Are PJ, Ox, Sue and myself the only oones looking at what PJ found in the trailer???? You need to see this! Check out post 1018,,, and it will describe what to look for there is clearly a dinosaur like head!!!
  • Flagg79
    A Breakdown of http://www.slushozoom.com -First, the page title in the top of the window reads: Slusho Zoom January 18, 2008 - A quote from the home page reads: In the beginning, there was more than one to inherit the wind. The sea is the womb. One overcame the other. Extinct does not always mean dead. -One link takes you to a page with an octopus that says: At the end of the world, after all my efforts were wasted. What I would not have given for just a simple bath. -Another link takes you to a wikipedia entry about the history of the bazooka. One of the creators discussed is Robert Goddard. One of the movie's producers in Drew Goddard. So when you look into Robert Goddard, you find that he had some pretty off-the-wall theories. Also, his family was later responsible for many breakthroughs in space travel and technology. -The link with the Statue of Liberty takes you to a young chef's website where you learn how to make cheese. -Another link takes you to a university page that discusses genetic disorders. -Another link takes you to an imdb listing for an old Japanese monster movie. Anyway...I'm sure there are more clues within these clues, but I think we're starting to get a little closer with clues like these.
  • Rafe
    Flagg... you can make of it what you want, but something to think about is that slushozoom.com wasn't created until July, 7. In my personal opinion I think that any sites that JJ intended to be a part of the clues was probably already created before the trailer ever aired. Anytime I come across a site that I think may be legit, I just check out the date it was created. If its after July 2 then I assume its fan site. I don't want to stop anyone from searching for clues anywhere, but just sharing my opinion :)
  • Sue
    Yeah and if you highlight the whole page, more text appears.... with slusho.jp and 1-18-08 being done in flash, this seems a little out of place to me... especially since the site links up to a place to make a 'donation' then goes to pay pal... Im not buying this at all
  • Alexa
    Now, Has anyone else looked at the trailer again!! check it out at 1:30 there is clearly something there! People really need to see this
  • Sue
    are you people not listening???? READ POST 1018 !!!!!!!!!!!!! THERE IS CLEARLY A DINO-HEAD LIKE THING TO BE SEEN IS ANYONE GOING TO LOOK INTO THAT?
  • groggo
    its really sad that you are posting under three names to show your point man. really really sad. especially because youre pretending to be a girl for two. loser
  • Sue
    groggo, are you in la la land? Instead of accusing someone of something stupid, why don't you go and check it out this is important to find out whats behind the movie... and I, for one am myself
  • lennit
    I agree if Rafe on http://www.slushozoom.com Everything points to it being bogus, ESPECIALLY the Hot Bath button on the upper right (looks like a Japanese wall scroll) and it links to donate.htm Donate? Right.... And then you get a button that links you to paypal. I feel we can safely call this site bogus now, just due to that. It's somebody trying to cash in on this movie, so don't buy into it. And the hidden text is extremely simple to do. You just set white text on a white background and you're set. It's a fun little trick, but I don't think JJ and company would resort to one of the oldest tricks in the book. Also, to debunk this site one step more is that they don't have Google Analytics/Urchin linked up at all. So far, both 1-18-08 and slusho have that linked in so they can track how many visitors come to the site. How else do you think they know if we found their other sites or not? Oh, and yeah, it's funny how Slush-O appears in Alias. "Do you want a Slush-O? They're delicious" Hmmmmmmmm
  • Sue
    Hey Lennit did you read the post at 1040? Was already noted you people are wasting time on bogus sites, when you can be looking at something real. Read 1018 look at the trailer again... There is clearly something to be seen Why dont we try to figure that out??? Maybe we could get somewhere then?
  • groggo
    me in lala land? you have social issues. sad really.
  • Sue
    grow up groggo this is a post about this movie, not your imagination If you dont want to contribute to the movie discussion then go somewhere else
  • Sue
    Now, is anyone going to look into what is seen in the trailer at 1:30? Clearly there is something there near the Chrysler building but everyone seems to be stuck on slushozoom Maybe if you look at that part of the trailer, we can actually figure out what the creature may be
  • Este
    Okay. Earlier today, one of the posters at another forum board showed a silent GIF slow motion image of the "moving smoke" that showed what most of us have already seen. However, I took it a step further. I decided to add the sound back to this slow motion image (as it was taken out originally), and I amplified it somewhat (don't know if it made much of a difference). What I heard kind of astonished me. I hadn't seen anyone else post about this, so I decided to post it in here also. I don't know what to really make of it. I am hoping you all can help me.

    Don't bother with Este #1052... they just added a screaming zombie at the end to try and shock people. And Sue, give it a break... I mean I understand that the thing looks like yoshi from mario, but if we want to look at it and post then we will. You don't need to post 25 comments about "LOOK AT THE PREVIEW AGAIN! OMG, IT'S A DINOSAUR!". I'm sorry, I ususally don't tear people down, but that's just getting ridiculous.
  • Este
    Alrigtht Rafe. Why are you being a dick? You need to take humor as it is, just humor, and stop trying to ruin it for everyone else by being a tightwad.
  • groggo
    its cuz sue is also Alexa and PJ, and its desperate for someone to tell him how fuckin cool he is. very very desperate.
  • Rafe
    That's exactly what I was thinking... all of a sudden three people all show up at the same time with the same enthusiasm about the same thing. And, I'm not being a tightwad. You can only post something so many times before someone is going to say enough is enough.
  • Rafe
    I'm not looking to make this a bashing session so lets just get back to the movie :)
  • groggo
    precisely. so who finds the camera at coney island? any one have leads?
  • Rafe
    Ethan Haas.... haha, just kidding :)
  • nick
    i found it!! and im making copies send 50 bucks to my paypal and ill send u a copy 😀
  • Chase
    #1024, I think you're looking too hard into the whole "It's alive, it's huge!" statement. It is NOT necessary that the monster in question be something normally percieved to be un-alive, i.e. an inanimate object. It can simply mean, "It's a LIVING THING", which would be the proper message to convey to others in a frenzy of flight. If you're living in NY City, and you see Manhattan exploding the hell up, and havoc being wreaked upon, you're going to either think that it's a terrorist attack involving bombs and weapons of mass destruction, or you're going to think it's something along the lines of Godzilla. Then when you actually see some gigantic entity that you've never seen before and have no idea what it is, except that it is some kind of monster. That's when you start thinking, "Holy shit, it's ALIVE. And it's HUGE!" All this means is, you don't know WTF it is, but you know it's animated, living and with some form of intelligence. That's the essence of screaming shit like "OMG it's ALIVE!".
  • Sue
    Rafe and Groggo first off, you guys don't even use a real name, so who are you to talk about anyone, second, I don't know who any of you or anyone one else is on this post, third, have you even looked at the trailer as described earlier? maybe you should, i dont see any yoshi, but i do see what appears to be a t-rex or something like it. I hope thats the case too, so you 2 can eat your words This is a post to figure out the movie, and how many posts have you wasted not on that topic grow up or get back to the movie, maybe we can all figure this thing out funny how many people started this post, and how few are left i wonder why
  • Joe
    As far as the dinosaur head at 1:29-1:30 on the video, i did look at it, and you know what it is, SMOKE, its SMOKE becaue the city just exploded, it does somewhat resemble a head of something but thats all it is, its not a head. Keep in mind the 30 million dollar buget, its not going to be a special effects type movie at all. I will bet nobody will know what it really is even after they see they movie because the whole movie itself is going to be based on clue's and flashbacks from people trying to figure out what happened in the aftermath and its still going to be left up in the air at the end of the movie. Thats my opinon.
  • Sue
    if you look, you can see a head open its mouth as the statue of liberty head is going up in the air look carefully, and use the trailer from apple at the highest resolution you will see it for sure
  • Sue
    And if you check it at 1:25, you can see something as well
  • Okay. We got the message. We looked at it. To me it looks like billowing smoke, but either way we got your message. BTW, we got your message. If you look up 'Ganu Swiss Donkeys' on wikipedia it will say "we got your message". Thanks for sharing. I got excited. I did what you asked. Mission accomplished. Now let's talk about that http://www.yoshiwaskatoey.com site.
  • NERV
    "Its a lion, its HUGE!" Hmmm LION, like in evangeLION! Oh I get it. Its an Evangelion movie!
  • lennit
    Sue, I understand that you want us to go looking at this part of the trailer. I saw motion in the smoke when I studied the trailer closely for clues, and I do agree something weird is there. But, we need to find the other clues and websites that exist out there, not find out what this monster is. We may never even see the monster in the movie. Even if we do, how does finding out what the monster is help us with the ARG of this movie? It isn't going to give us all the links to the sites JJ put up. We have to look for other clues than "that looks like a T-rex". Slusho becomes obvious when you see it, but where do we go with a T-rex or similar creature? Also, we don't even know for sure that it's a monster attacking NYC. It could be a monster, but instead of destroying NYC with a purpose it could be fighting another monster or something. I've used this before just to illustrate a point that we can't think about this in old ways. JJ isn't like that. The first thing that came to our minds when we saw the trailer is "Godzilla!!" and I'm positive he expected that response. What if it's something far beyond our normal perception? We go "Gozilla-esk" and JJ expects that, he then goes some other route like Mother Earth taking over or something. We can't go to cliches here. And everyone, please bring any of the aggressive tones on this thread to a close. There will be people who come here to try and anger us and say the movie is stupid and we're giving it free publicity, etc etc. Let's please try to ignore them and use this as a way to share information, with open minds, and not be attached to any theory. We know so little about this movie and it seems a lot of people are married to Cthulhu, Voltron, Eva, Godzilla, etc etc and that's causing some tension and arguments. I say, if any of these supporters can come up with proof to back up their beliefs, then wonderful! I'd personally love to hear it. But when we have other proof pointing towards or confirming those creatures or characters are not related to this movie then please respect that. It's sad when obvious logic cannot be taken in because one is jaded with hope, expectation, or other agendas. Anyway, I'll still do my best to report the most un-biased and confirmed data I can. I'm still trying to crack the mysteries of Slusho and hopefully tomorrow's (thursday's) new 1-18-08 picture gives us another clue!
  • NERV
    Kinda quiet in here huh? :)
  • Brock Sampson
    Yeah...I checked I the trailer on Apple, highest res, blah blah. I don't see it dude. Not saying your wrong, just saying I don't see shit but smoke.
  • Rick
    If you think you see it, believe it, know it or have a guess........post it. Thats what this is thread is for. Dont let someone on here tell you they KNOWWWW its not this or that and your wasting anyones time for saying it. Fact of the matter is NOBODY on this thread knows what this movie is or is not about nor has any proof to go either way. Nobody was in closed door meetings, signed any contracts or was on site filming this. Its been a secret this long and nobody knew it was coming until it played. This could be so simple its sickening and that is how JJ is getting one over on everybody and the joke could be on us scrambling like rats for clues. People are looking at oven mits, swiss cheese, hearing Godzilla roar, quoting scripture, watching old cartoons, researching fraternities, google earthing, cropping photos and making anagrams out of every printed word on street signs and bumpersticker from the trailer.......and we are no closer now then we were then.....and that is only my opinion.
  • rtv
    so were all decided its GODZILLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Rick
    LOL.
  • Brock Sampson
    Google the word bloob. Thank me later.
  • LiCH
    Ya -- I'm beginning to believe that we totally need a Numerologist to help us. Number are apparently very important to J J Abrams. He may be using biblical numbers or even numbers that have a personal meaning to himself. Has anyone played with the time stamp numbers in the pictures? The visuals in the pictures might not even be important, everything could just revolve around their timestamps. I still don't have an answer in regards to the Character called "Ethan Haas" that was on that show "The Class". I believe either JJ or Bad Robot had something to do with that movie. I'm wondering if the character Ethan Haas from the show had any psychic abilities on the show, although I think the show was a comedy. Any devout christians or jews on the board? Can you speak to what kind of important numbers are in the bible? Everyone knows 666, sign of the beast, but what others are there? 12 apostles? 1 true god. 39 books in the old testament. 27 books in the new testament. Revelation: 7 churches in asia. 7 stars, 7 lampstands. 7 angels, with 7 trumpets. 4 horns of the golden altar. 24 elders and 4 living creatures: the 1st was like a LION, 2nd like a CALF, 3rd a human-like face, 4th like a flying EAGLE. 12 x 12,000 = of the tribes of the children of Isreal were sealed. Revelation 9:15 - "So the FOUR ANGELS, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind." Revelation 9:17 - "And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and brimstone." I don't even know if I can write down and find all the number references in Revelations, there are just sooo many of them. Hope this helps.
  • rtv
    so were all decided its EVANGELION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Bumbay18
    ok looking at the preveiew over and over again im perty sure its either an apocalyspse movie or from what i heard a giant monster/alien movie
  • NY JOE
    Thinking of the swiss cheese and oven mitt thing, fondue comes to mind
  • NY JOE
    And you use little forks, or pitchforks to dip stuff in the fondue, im still thinking the #6 comes up alot
  • Shinji
    @ LiCH comment #1076 Some of this sounds like Eva "Hope this helps." Yeah it does :) Long live Evangelion.......
  • Bumbay18
    what if this is a "prequel" trailer like what they did for transformers shoing bumbblebee at mars. it makes sense for jj to do this for a movie that did the same thing......just a thought
  • Bumbay18
    Yeah Im pretty sure it could be a prequel for Eva. It could be a movie for when the first angel attacks.
  • Rick
    I was checking out the official website just a bit ago to see if at midnight eastern time a 4th picture was added....indicating a pattern of a new picture every Thursday. Anyhow...not yet...but I noticed something when I refreshed the page, and I do not know if this was mentioned before so sorry if it was....but everytime you goto the page or refresh it, the pictures are shuffled around. Has anyone found a pattern to this or some method to that madness or do you all think its just random? Just something else to think about.....as if there isnt enough already.
  • NY JOE
    Rick, i am not getting a 4th pic are you sure one was added?
  • Rick
    Sorry if I wasnt clear Joe.....when I said "not yet", I meant a 4th one was not there when I went looking a bit ago. When I am tired and grasping for straws at midnight, my grammar and sentence structure skills are not quite up to School House Rock recommendations. ..... lol.
  • NY JOE
    lol, understood

    I noticed that the "Ill miss you rob poster" is not a cut out, but actually made by something. Does anybody know of what that might be.
  • thebk
    the poster is made out of pictures of i think people, his friends probaly. you may be able to find something if u could zoom in on them.
  • thebk
    If we're lucky, we might get to see an eva
  • Diana Hacker
    Since the trailer seems to have many minute clues throughout the teaser. I also saw that there was a word on the back of a frightened bystander between the time of 1:21 to 1:22. It looks like it says Switzerland, but.......who knows. The shadow of the monster outside looks like the Marshmellow Monster from Ghostbusters. hehe
  • Jill
    There's too many posts to read through them all. HAS ANYBODY CAUGHT ONTO THE WEBSITE... http://www.1-18-08.com ? It has a few pics from the movie. Doesn't really tell anything yet but I wonder if they will be updated from time to time and I wonder it that IS the name of the movie. hmmmm.

  • Legal Eagle
    I spoke to Viacom legal today and their communications department said that the rumors of them pulling the pics are false. Additionally, Steven, of Shearman & Sterling added that the websites claiming a C&D have lied to boost their ratings. “The photos in question do not show or prove enough information as to be the set of the “Clover” production.” Grow up people. And quit trying to look like your nuts are bigger than they are.

    I dont know about anyone but when you look at the trailer at the 1:31-ish mark you can see the smoke form into a face of a half lion-half man face quickly just before it changes to 1:32 and before the camera pans away again. To me it sounds like the person says "its a lion, its huge!". Plus the clues about the girl earlier saying it "sounded" like an animal. Then another guy is heard saying "what kind of animal makes that sound?" or something to that effect. Now look up the Coney Island lion and the sea lions at Coney Island. AND look up nara-simha in the Hindu religion. I might be waaaaaaaay off base here but it might be something??????? SOmething about the end of the world in the Hindu religion.....I dont know squat about Hindu so I might be wrong....

    I've been checking this thread since it began, and since we've hit a little over a 1000 it's starting to become redundant. Not bitching or yelling, just make sure that you take the time like everyone else did and read ALL of the comments. Wasted space and redundancy will only cause less patient people to leave the thread or waste more space yelling. About the face in the smoke, last night I showed the trailer in HD to a few friends who hadn't seen the trailer before. Right before we see the SOL head flying from the buildings in the wasy back, they claimed they could see a strange looking shadow. I thought it was just smoke or shadow from the smoke, but they said it was something else, I couldn't quite make it out but has anyone else noticed anything starge on the buildings to the left of the huge smoke cloud?

    In response to #1084, The 4th picture, if my assumptions are correct, should be posted at around 5PM Central Today (Thursday the 19th) That's at least around the time they posted the past two pictures....around 5PM Central the past 2 Thursdays. Let's see if they do it a third time.

    1101 - hopefully bc work is boring
  • Flagg79
    A few new(?) tidbits - at the 0:54, there is a single frame where the camera does this weird zoom thing. It's the direct instant before they go to the rooftop and looks as if the camera is doing an auto focus. Anyway, if you keep pausing and pausing and checking out every frame within that one second, you'll see a very detailed shape of what, IMO, looks like some kind of demon. -In Revelations, there is talk of a 6 headed beast that actually has a seventh head, the seventh being that of the anti-christ. Watch the explosion as they are on the rooftop and count how many different projectiles go into the air.

    This event really happened, and recently someone went through the trouble of posting a fake story on CNN website about this happening again. I'm not sure but CNN won't post a fake story for just anyone. The last time something like this happened, it was to promote The Blair Witch Project. Hmm.
  • Brock Sampson
    Also, alot of people have associated this with The creature Trunko. So I looked up Trunko: Trunko is the nickname for an animal reportedly sighted in Margate, South Africa on October 25, 1924, according to an article entitled "Fish Like A Polar Bear" published in the December 27, 1924 edition of London's Daily Mail. The animal was reputedly first seen off the coast battling two ORKA whales, which fought the unusual creature for three hours. It used its tail to attack the whales and reportedly lifted itself out of the water by about 20 feet. One of the witnesses, Hugh Ballance, described the animal as looking like a "giant polar bear" during a final fight. These are the links - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloop http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trunko Now that I think about it, the roar sounded familiar to me, I just couldn't place it. Kinda sounds like a half polar bear half whale. I'll buy that. What do you guys think? I think Trunko could be coming.........maybe.
  • le
    Something new!!! So, I was reading the newspaper article that was scanned and posted above http://i15.tinypic.com/6cemxoh.jpg and I noticed something weird in the 5th paragraph where they say the news reporter mentions a "thunderous, roaring sound". The thing is, they say "NY1 reports Roma Torre reports.... I knew something was weird here....we didn't see her name in the trailer. I checked and yeah, no name appears on the screen and she doesn't say her name at all in the trailer...just "phone calls have been pouring into the NY1 news room with reports of a thunderous, roaring sound" so, I searched for Roma Torre and found this http://www.ny1.com/ny1/content/index.jsp?stid=37&aid=338 yep, that's her. I thought I read from somebody who lives in Manhattan that NY1 doesn't exist. Can anybody confirm this? Is the site http://www.ny1.com real or bogus? More info as it develops :)
  • Thundercats
    NY1 is real. I live in NYC.
  • lennit
    oops, that above post was by me...hahahaha "le"...hahaha :)
  • GSPgirl
    Hey #1108 - I stated many posts ago that NY1 does exist - it's a Time Warner company and they've often participated in New York City-centric movies.
  • Rick
    I think I got it......Reptilicus. OK...im kidding.....just felt the urge to add something while waiting to go out to dinner. But it got me thinking about other classic and less known sci-fi movies......and I still got butkiss.
  • lennit
    Well, I was going off of the past couple of weeks and the images were put up on Thursdays around 5PM Central...but it's almost 6 now and no new image. :( Possibly later tonight?? But, oh well, I was really excited.
  • Joe
    Finally LE post 1108 finally came up with something noteworthy, very nice. I have a couple things i need clarification on with post 1103's findings, where anywhere on that frame do you see a head of a demon or anything all. I've looked at it frame for frame and i dont see anything at all, where do i need to look? and for post 1107, where there any clues anywhere from the pictures or the trailer that pointed you to Trunko? how did you come up with that? or is that just a guess on your part? Becaue i cant imagine the movie being that lame where a half whale, half polar bear is going to jump out of the ocean and terrorize NYC and smack off the head of the statue of liberty. I dont think it sounds like a whale song at all, if it was what would it be trying to communicate with? I think the sound could actually be a metal structure moving or grinding on something ready to collapse. Anybody figure out at about 1:20 when they all run out side what is the illuminate doghnut shaped O on the one guys back?
  • Leland
    Im hella pissed that the 4th pic aint up yet. lol I noticed the doghnut shaped sign also on the back at 1:20, but at 1:21-1:22 there is a word on the back of another persons jacket that runs left to right on the screen. Any ideas homies and homette's.
  • Rick
    I too saw the "glowing ring". I can also see a second one that is more faint on the bottom right of his shirt. It can be seen the clearest at 1:20. Its almost like how something glows where there is a blacklight on it. Leland.....The word on the jacket is Switzerland. I also been working on that phone number on the sign that ends in 6-5535. I was looking at NY prefixes and wasnt able to come up with anything.....yet. Boy do I need a hobby.
  • Joe
    Yes, the word on the Jacket is Switzerland, and the funny thing is on http://www.slush.jp site when you read the history and click on the fish you get a picture of swiss cheese, i dont know what the connection is. my quicktime is all messed up from the codecs i have, i try to show frame by frame on the doghnut shap on the guys back and i think you can letters and or numbers but i cant seem to stop it at the exact frame to be sure, so it could be nothing, someone else should try it and see what you come up with.
  • bored
    I'm pretty sure the circles on the guys shirt are just part of his shirt, if you watch it frame by frame they stay in the same spot, this would explain the second one seen on the bottom right corner of it, its just the pattern of his lame shirt. also i noticed something about the debris that goes ascending into the sky when everyones on the roof, they seem to explode more than once......dont have much to pull from that but thought it was interesting.

    Joe, I looked for additional numbers and letters but didnt see any. I thought I saw some shapes within the "glowing" part but cannot make anything out. I am getting about 12 frames per second that I can look at. Only a couple per second are crystal clear to be able to make anything out. Your guess is as good as mine on the oven mit and swiss cheese. I thought there might be a link with the jacket too....at this point its anybodies guess.

    You know, I was thinking before today that they wouldn't put the 4th pic up on 1-18-08.com (if there is a 4th pic) just because we were expecting them to. You know there are people that work specifically on this for JJ and if it was me... I think it would be humorous to throw everyone off like that. The whole thursday at 5pm thing was a good observation, but may not be anything significant. Just a thought... would be kinda funny.
  • Rick
    I agree Rafe, why give us what we expect. That would go against the whole idea of this guessing game.
  • rtv
    so were all decided its a killer swiss cheese slusho!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Chris
    Abrams has duped us, you know he's laughing his ass off right now. Funny thing is, we are no closer right now than we were the day the trailer was released. Sure, lots, and LOTS of speculation, but that's all it is. There's probably a website sitting out there right now that has all the answers. We just haven't found it. :)
  • Rick
    OK...I have another idea after my Reptilicus crack. I was still thinking about old movies and came up with another one of my old favorites and saw a few interesting things...movie....The Beast From 20000 Fathoms. A movie that was the inspiration for Godzilla. A huge monster that thaws out and enters Lower Manhattan then goes on to destroy Coney Island, which is where it meets his demise. Can anyone apply some of that Slusho stuff or things in the trailer to this one? I just figured the whole warming thing (63 degrees in January), social message (global warming vs atomic testing), loud roar that is most likely a monster of some sort, came out the water into Lower Manhattan (Slusho is looking like something from the sea), we know they did filming at Coney Island and lastly the Beast carries a virus that makes people/the soldiers fighting it, sick like all the parasite things people are talking about. Again, just tossing out ideas and there seems to be a couple really good coincidences there.....maybe it will make someone else think of something else or see another clue.

    i really don't see the fascination or immense praise given to this preview. It was average at best i mean it was shot with a home video camera, a few people talked during a party the lights flicker a loud roar and then the statue of liberty's head flies to the ground.....SO WHAT!!! Defiantly not the best trailer ever defiantly not extraordinarily amazing and although it sparks interest let me ask you this how much interest would people still have with this average or may i even say sub par preview to possible the best movie i have ever seen (transformers) if it gave you the damn movies name. People would not be talking about this movie like its god's gift to movies and praising it before they know a damn thing about the movie might i add. People are like "oh man awesome" or "Wow can't wait to see his movie" and may i ask you WHY.You know nothing about this movie and its JJ Abram may i all remind you of LOST possibly the most confusing and annoying show on television EVER. This is how i predict the movie to go ready ill plot it out in 5-10 easy segments so everyone can follow. 1) People hear monster New York is being destroyed ( alright like New York hasn't been destroyed or ruined in what 100 other movies) 2) People are running and screaming and at this point you NEVER see the monster just people running crying and having hours of pointless dialouge. 3) Group of people band together to find safety ( possibility of a love story forming or knowing Abram you will find out how all these people are connected in some way through 2 hours of confusing background stories and flashbacks) 4-7) Nothing but the regular shitty special effects that ignorant people find amazing and jerk off to when a building explodes in the background (still have not seen the monster though) 8) Some random guys shows up and somehow knows about the monster and go off about it what ever 9) Monster completely destroys New York and movie is coming to an end 10) Movie ends but you are still left with just about as much knowledge about the movie now as you were when you first saw the trailer for it before the Transformers movie and in order to find out what the movie is actually about and how it ends because it leaves you with so many loose ends and plot holes its ridiculous you have to watch another 5 seasons of LOST, suck my balls JJ Abram there you have it your amazing movie thats all i can call it now a movie because for some reason we don't have a real name for it yet so whatever get all excited about this movie i don't care everyone is entitled to their opinion and views i just don't see how or why it is being classified as the coolest movie trailer ever and why there is so much hype get over yourselves people i mean when you know the name of the movie maybe ill accept you to crack a grin over the trailer in anticipation but until then shut up.
  • Rick
    Its a great big internet Chris. If you do not care and are so upset over peoples hype why are you even in the blogs and threads reading about it to know what people said and then taking the time to post? Thats like saying I hate steak so I think I will go to Outback for dinner.
  • i saw transformers. i don't remember seeing this trailer. so i went back and watched it after hearing that it's become some internet hype. after watching again, now i remember seeing a trailer at transformers for a godzilla movie. how it is not obivious that it's godzilla? nice shot out to japan too.
  • Rafe
    LMAO... Rick said, "Thats like saying I hate steak so I think I will go to Outback for dinner." That's awesome.
  • JJJackson
    2 comments from Chris (1125) can pretty much sum up the mentality at work there: "possible the best movie i have ever seen (transformers)" "Nothing but the regular shitty special effects that ignorant people find amazing" THERE ya have it - straight from the non-oven-mitt-thinking horses mouth, well, or SOME misc horse orifice. LOL As for people making cracks here and in other threads about the ridiculous idea of smoke being a monster, let's review a few unlikely things that have previously scared the b'jesus out of people: a man made of various body parts, a man that turns into a wild dog, a dead body wrapped in gauze, a fog, a mass of gelatinous goo, flocks of deranged birds. Point is, almost anything, in the proper context, can be made to seem scary. I think JJ will provide the context and allow our own minds to provide the beast. PS - DON'T look under the bed tonight!

    THE MOVIE IS NOT GODZILLA OR ANYTHING! THE MOVIE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN IS "RAMPAGE" LIKE THE VIDEO GAME! A GIANT LION REFERRING TO A "RAMPAGE" CHARACTER! MY LITTLE BROTHER KNEW THAT LIKE IN 10 SECONDS! THINK ABOUT IT THERE WERE MULTIPLE FIREBALLS TRANSFORMING INTO THE CHARACTERS OF "RAMPAGE". ITS DARING AND WHAT NOT. ME AND MY LITTLE BROTHER THOUGHT ABOUT IT AND IT WE BELIEVE THE MOVIE IS BASED ON THE VIDEO GAME "RAMPAGE".
  • Ox
    Rampage? Come on, man...we are talking about J.J. Abrams. Let's just be serious here. Your evidence proves nothing.

    I sticking with my Beast from 20000 Fathoms theory I posted above......just saying for now I havent seen anything better thrown on the table. I think (ONLY my opinion) anyone stuck on the idea that this will be a some mysterious inuendo numerological physchological film simply because its JJ Abrams has their head in the clouds. While he has a hit and great success the mysterious Lost and success with Alias, we need to remember that does not mean that this movie, just because the trailer doesnt say the title, will be just like that. I would like to point out that he also wrote for the movies Armageddon, Gone Fishin and Taking Care of Business and some television credits aside from what I mentioned are Felicity and What About Brian......no numberology, no smoke monsters and no unsatisfying endings. He is also working on the next Star Trek (your basic sci-fi, spaceship, alien, photon torpedo kind of movie)...that is called branching out. So to say "JJ Abrams wouldnt do a Rampage, Godzilla, Smoke Monster, Chalupa (I just like calling it that), or Voltron movie just because of what Lost is", is just ludicrous. And again, I am not saying its one of those....just calling for openmindedness. 😉

    ok guys, somehow I stmbled on to this website and was intrigued. Then I went to see transformers on weds. Then I spent like 2 days at work reading 1133 comments to catch up, also checking all the sites and what not. I am a pretty intuitive guy and this is what I can garuantee you. Its an end of the world (apoc.) movie. Its not godzilla, any to do with lost, rampage, EVA or voltron (man you guys are nerdbombers), zzzzz the list goes on, its not it. Could be chutlupuhajsaihdas, trust me, this will be new. I am also pretty sure that all the websites weve been going to are connected. A stupid 2 paragraph phony letter from JJ that says ethanhaaswasright.com is not affiliated with cloverfield does not stop me from believing it. Nor does articles stating that all this ethan stuff is for a video game, that would be insane. go to ethanhaaswasright.org and click all the links on the right side, doesn't all this shit remind you at all about the lost experience and finding all that hidden stuff all over the web. Its something that you can get into, but only for a short while, because its just a tv show, or a movie.
  • I'm not sure the end of the world theory fits well with the idea that the whole film is a flashback from a camera that is found after it's over. If the world ends, there aren't people cleaning up and taking the time to watch videos when they might need to go find shelter and food.
  • AD
    i think its completely original, but everything is up to speculation when its about this movie if it was Rampage, wouldn't any of the sites that J.J. and company created would have a bit more clues to it being Rampage? Its a good observation, but people would need more clues or proof to it being Rampage or any other movie or video game remake just my thoughts, don't kill me, please
  • Joe
    Rampage? really? that theory is way out there. I think the fact J.J. made it a point to say the movie only has a 30 million dollar budget definetly eliminates any chance of this being any type of remake, re-tred and adaptation of any sort, because those type of movies would be marketed for their special effects, which this movie is not going to have with that budget. Its going to be an original idea and plot (maybe revelations if anything) and the clues are in the numbers, the time stamps on the pics, compared to the time they are on the roof when the city explodes (very far away from the city) to the next scene cutting to them running out of a building in the middle of the city right when the guy says "i saw it, its alive, its huge" i think is the biggest thing we need to put together. I think the pictures will fill in the blanks on what happened from the time they were on the roof to the time they made it downtown.
  • dj_hindle
    I have to say that 1130 has a point. When I first saw the trailer at the movies, I had never heard about it before. It was a complete surprise to me. But the first thing I thought when watching it was Rampage. I even turned to my wife in the middle of it and said, ohhhh rampage. I was waiting for the name to show up and say see. I almost posted my theory the other day about it, but thought after reading some of these, I was way off. Now I don't think so. It can't be the end of the world, if the next day starts the movie off. If there's a clean up crew, that would lead me to believe something(s) makes a big mess of NY. Rampage fits that well. I'm not at all saying I'm right, and I definately could be wrong, but this is the theory I am sticking with for now.
  • Pitbull0669
    Hey Post 1133 I started that beast from 20,000 fathoms thing back in te top 100 posts what were you late to the party.. or what...lol My post was #88 on that topic. I said...."I bet a Camcorder remake of beast from 20,000 fathoms.."
  • groggo
    chris youre an asshole, and that essay doesnt make you tough. i'd whip your ass if i knew who you were for trying to be mr. toughsmarts. dont post here again. keep your hate for people in your moms basement, with your World of Warcraft posters and Chewbacca outfit.
  • Rick
    Pitbull....I prefer to call it fashionably late...lol. Now there are 2 of us...lol. You think my theory has some merit? Does anyone know if the budget, aside from what he said, was really 30 million? I assume your not just taking his word for it. Was this something that can be verified? Groggo, best thing to do with someone like Chris is to ignore it. Let him go on e
