The "Cloverfield" project, for lack of a real name, has gotten a lot of buzz. Due to all the internet speculation and supposed Alternate Reality Game sites, such as slusho.jp, ethanhaaswasright.com, and so many more, I thought all that could use its own thread. I'm going to guess that this thread will use a lot of spoiler tags.

When I went to slusho.jp,

Also, I heard that, at the Paramount panel at Comic-Con, some Cloverfield-related things will be released, such as the official name and perhaps a clip.

I predict that everyone will be disappointed. I just don't get all the buzz, especially after seeing the trailer. Um...it's decent?

It'll probably be the FSM™ from Lost.

Lookin forward to it, last giant monster film I saw was Kong Kong and that was disappointing.

That looks a lot like what happens in the trailer, actually.

News article

From news article:
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 also says the sound the "creature" makes is another big clue. He says the creature is an organic, living thing.

Also, the site  www.1-18-08.com  is linked to the movie, as is  www.slusho.jp . Another site that's caused a stir was  abz3293.com  due to it's references to certain things in the trailer and slusho.jp.

One of the guys in the trailer sounds like he says "I saw it... it's a lion, it's huge!", but its most likely "I saw it... it's alive..."
There's only so many cool creatures that would make that noise, and assuming it threw the Statue of Liberty head it would most likely need opposable thumbs...  hmpf

Somebody play the roaring sound at double speed and possibly backwards, please.

The trailer is very hype-tastic, I'll give them that much.

are you people insane its so obvious what the movies about. POWER RANGERS! i mean the young adults the calls for jason and only a zord can cause such damage. lol ok im joking but this reall does feel like way to much hype and it might end up just being something as dumb as power rangers or just godzilla. mainly because of the japan references in the trailer

The film starts with a rescue crew cleaning up after the entire incident, and one of them finds a camera. They rewind the tape, press play... and the playback is the movie that unfolds.

The whole movie is a dream sequence.  And then one of the characters turns out to be someone who you didn't expect them to be.  The End.

Here's a different angled poster that was released:


Supposedly, here's the story on how the poster posted earlier was leaked (from Cloverfield/Parasite Blogspace:
 
Quote
Someone on the IMDB board, in response to my hi-res images, stated that they know the vendor selling the "stolen" image for the movie and has already been contacted by Paramount.

The name of the person who is selling the one sheet pictured by our fellow poster here on IMDB is Luanna Jo Brown. I happen to know this woman. She has a big booth at the Frank and Son's show and sells movie posters and bootleg movies. She lives in Victorville, CA and Paramount has already been contacted regarding this breach and this stupid lady just spoiled the big announcement of the film's title that Paramount was saving for the Comic Con for all us fans. Plus -- she will be actually trying to SELL THESE STOLEN MOVIE One Sheets from Paramount while she is at the Con. I hope karma is kind to her. Cause Paramount won't be!!!!

Whether this is true or not, it hasn't seemed to phase anyone very much. Arguments against the poster state that the Vendor "Luanna Jo Brown" ruined the game by revealing the super-secret title days before JJ Abrams' big announcement at Comic-Con. As far as I'm concerned, we don't know that this is a true story and so what if the title is Monstrous? We still don't know what the monster is or why it's so pissed.


And here's a comment on that...
 
Quote
What a strange world this is.

1. How does some crazy-ass fat lady get access to top-secret Paramount publicity materials?

2. Why isn't her Twinkie-sized ass in the slammer by now?

3. I wonder if "Monstrous" is really the title. Why go to all the bother of concealing/revealing the title if it's so freakin' generic?

4. Any chance "Monstrous" is a red herring or working title? (Probably not, given the high production values of the poster.)

5. If "Monstrous" is really the title, I don't think it would have gotten a really huge reaction even if the name hadn't leaked. There would have been a palpable air of disappointment when they announced the title. "Revenge of the Sith" it ain't.

6. I still can't get over the poster-stealing cow. What a world.


The poster I posted was released by Paramount at their Comic-Con panel today. Either they had cold feet on "Monstrous" or they aren't releasing it yet.

Please, Abrams knows the only thing nerds love more than a big reveal is a spoiler to a big reveal.  I declare uberhype on that.

Abrams at Comic-Con:
 
Quote
“I wanted a monster movies, and had taken my son to Japan, and there were all these Godzilla dolls everywhere.” *cheers from the audience* “However, I decided we needed our own monster. We’re not showing any footage, but we’re almost done shooting, and I think you’ll love it. We aren’t revealing a title today.” *boos from the audience* “What would you think if we called it Monstruous?” *Puzzled reaction from crowd.* “Anyhow, we’ll see. We have a new poster out, and you’ll be getting that today. I can’t wait for you to see this.. Bye!

Also, the "Monstrous" poster is a tagline. They also released some with other taglines, like "Terrifying" and "Furious".

Now, coming from what Abrams said at Comic-Con, I think there are two monsters. He said that "we needed our own monster" when refering to Godzilla. In those movies, Godzilla is the "good" and loved monster that fights Mothra or whoever. In the poster, you see there's already destruction but also a water trail. What I think is one monster came and was destroying New York, and then the "good" monster is in the water, coming to save the day.

The Ethan Haas and other sites have nothing to do with the movie, JJ Abrahms sez.
i_c_weiner was barking up the wrong internets.      tongue

New title rumour: "Overnight".
Discuss.
I think the Monstrous title will be the tagline too.

Yeah, I've seen one which says "Furious"....

EDIT:  I personally don't really care what the movie is called, as long as it's good.

If it's Fast & The Furious: Monster Takes New York. I'll kill each Hollywood hack. I can just see it now, a montage of Godzilla buying clothes to the song Puttin On The Ritz while some Vin Diesl wannabe is screaming at some Asian guy.

I found out Ethan Haas wasn't related after I had made the thread.


Overnight sounds lame. It's not exactly a name to start a monster movie franchise with. Oddly, I wouldn't mind a nameless movie or a series of films with dates as their titles. "Where will you be on 1-18-08?" seems like a catchy slogan. The dates as titles could get really lame really fast though.

[Edit] Currently, Paramount and Apple Trailers list the film as "01-18-08".

Some make-up artist supposedly leaked parts of dialogue from the movie.

Empire's hi-quality 2nd trailer

Click the "trailer breakdown" there are more clues and questions raised by the trailer.

Also, if you watch the trailer, one of the Army guys has his face pixellated out, I wonder why that is?

The "breakdown" is quite interesting, and at least has a still of (what appears to be part of) the creature itself...

Wooter: That's fan art.

The new trailer is the shit. The original teaser pulled me into the movie. I likely wouldn't be as interested in the movie if it wasn't for the original teaser. For somebody like me who's been following this since Transformers, this trailer is a nice treat. It's amazing how the CG and real footage are blended so well together.
