Cloverfield 3 Monster Theory

I got a comment from Mitzela who wrote:
"i don't know if this will give any clues, but i just found this. he ties in his shows all together usually right? name of the company for "what about brian" is Leviathan, which is a deep sea monster.... "
And then today Cloverfield News got a similar clue and made a post (here) referring back to their July 25th post regarding the 3 Monster Theory. Here's the original post that came from a user named 'wtfurexic' on their forum:

“I’ve become really addicted to learning more about this movie. I’m afraid it might consume my summer vacation. :X

But I love the theory about the three beasts. Okay, this is what I think.
So we all know that…

Behemoth = Earth
Leviathan= Water
Ziz= Air

If you ago to the SLUSHO! site the downloads section takes you to a page where the two kids are in the air possibly being a clue for Ziz. On the homepage the kids are on the ground (Clue for Behemoth?). & When you go to the History section it takes you to the kids swimming underwater. [Leviathan]”

"Leviathan," among other things, was a Biblical sea monster and the word appears six times in the Bible. We'll ignore that "Leviathan" was also a crappy Peter Weller movie in 1989. So, could the Cloverfield monster be 3 monsters

Monster from Leviathan

Check out the trailer again (below) and see if you hear 3 distinctive Roars. Personally, I'm not really hearing it. It just sounds like a deep roar with layers.

For example, when they made the T-Rex roars for Jurassic Park it had a combination of animals (Tigers, gators, stuff like that) that were mixed together to create the organic and unique sound of the Rex. I kinda get that impression from the trailer that this audio clip of the monster is manufactured like that.

However, I think it's a real cool theory and it is something I'm going to look into more...

How many leaves does a clover usually have?

Mitzela said...

maybe its four monsters, one for each element? earth, water, air and now missing fire?

maybe a fire breathing monster? or maybe a monster that combines all three. leviathan per wikipedia supposedly is from the sea and breathes fire...hmmmm

Leviathan on the trailer is meant to have created the fireball seen in the middle of the city. Behemoth the earthquake and Ziz the statue head. This theory seems to have the most evidence for it. But maybe its just to throw people off.

that's pretty funny.

i heard he came from outer space, but i guess it's from the ocean, right? how is his skin so tough if he's been under water for all these years?

What is Cloverfield?

Welcome to 1-18-08 Project Cloverfield Blog.

Cloverfield is the J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias) produced monster flick directed by Matt Reeves. Get caught up on all the Cloverfield news including the viral world of Tagruato, TIDOwave, and Slusho!? And now Aladygma?

However, I love viral campaigns. Cloverfield taught me the fun of being involved with the viral world of movies and TV. That's why I'd like to branch out this site to cover some of the major viral campaigns as they are developing. Feel free to drop me a line or tip on any you find interesting.

Welcome to Cloverfield

Very few facts emerged from the viral campaign that was Cloverfield. It all started after a short, teaser trailer for Cloverfield appeared with the Transformers movie in early July of 2007. Since then, speculation surrounded what the title of the movie would be (Monstrous, Overnight, etc...) and what the monster really is and why it is tearing up New York City.

A few pictures and covert videos from the film showed up online and there were only a few core facts we knew of including the poster, the teaser trailer, and a few websites at 1-18-08, Tagruato Corp, and Slusho .

In November, the official full-length Cloverfield trailer was released that helped open up the story as well as cement the "Cloverfield" name for the movie. A short glimpse of the Cloverfield Monster was seen but for most people they still had little or no clue as to what it was.

The movie centered around five young New Yorkers throwing their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives. Cloverfield opened the weekend of 1-18-08 and set box office records for a movie in January with a monster take of over $40M.

Slusho This is the Japanese frozen drink made from a secret ingredient gathered from the bottom of the ocean. Slusho gives you a kick and makes you extremely happy. Prior to 1-18-08 Slusho was not sold in the US. However, recent FDA approval gave Slusho clearance to come to the states. Rob Hawkins, the lead character, was recently promoted to vice-president of Slusho and was on his way to Japan the night of the attack. Slusho is owned by the Tagruato Corp. of Japan. Slusho also first made an appearance on J.J. Abrams Alias during a scene where characters buy the drink at a store.

Tagruato This ficticious Japanese company is the parent company of Slusho as well as the Yoshida Medical Research, Bold Futura, and ParafFUN! Wax Distributors. Besides drilling the oceans for Slusho ingredients, Tagruato builds everything from space satellites to medical gear.
