The Cloverfield Ending : Did Something Fall From The Sky?


Warning!: Contains Spoilers and discussion about the Cloverfield Ending.


The ending of Cloverfield will have people questioning the movie. I've had a couple of people send me questions on one instance in particular. It involves the very end of the movie so please only read further if you want to be spoiled or discuss it.

We have just witnessed the destruction of New York by the Cloverfield Monster and the U.S. Military. The camera that is recording Rob's night comes to an end in rubble and debrie. The tape ends and goes to the footage recorded underneath of when Rob and Beth are at Coney Island.

Here's where something happens that has some people talking. In the distance something big and black falls into the water. I couldn't tell if it fell from the sky or just popped up and went back under. I only caught a glimmer but a few people swore it fell from the sky.

Did Rob catch the first and last sighting of the Cloverfield Monster on tape? Did the Monster come for outer space or was it just there at this time swimming around the sea? If you happen to go see the movie again (or for the first time) pay special attention to this part and see what you think.

Go to the Tagruato.jp website and
into the headlines tab and read the article about the Hatsui satellite.

Yes something did fall from the sky....I hadn't heard about this prior to the movie but happened to be lucky enough to see it entirely, nobody else around me saw it though. It wasn't the monster itself or anything but might've been something carrying the monster. Really it looked like just a plain, black, round object.

I saw the movie and wasn't paying attention to the ending. So, i didn't get to see whatever takes place at Coney Island, but i can believe it. Especially since i did sit through the very end and hear the subliminal message " its still alive". Anyways to get to the point...weird stuff is going on. The Tagruato.jp site is down and has a weird message on it and the TidoWave.com site seems to have been shut down by the government....not the real government but the fiction one from the movie. My new Theory is that JJ is going to continue the viral marking for the second movie. Considering "Its still alive" :)

Anonymous said...

YES, YES!!! I saw it. Man, I thought I had imagined it, because noone else I've talked to knew what I was talking about.

casers said...

I saw it too. No one really seemed focused on the background as much as what else was going on in front of them. It did appear to be a black round shape. My wife missed it though....guess we have to go back and watch it all over again.

anthonyd said...

it definitely fell from the sky.
my friend and i caught it at the same time and did a double take with eachother to see if the other had caught it as well.
totally awesome

Feanix said...

I saw it as well. I thought it was a bird until it just dropped into the water. I asked people around me if they saw the same but nobody else did. hmmm...these are the days I wished I had Tivo.

ok aparintly there is a video of the end of the movie... but i saw the end of the movie and it dosnt match exactly this video on the net.

-of-cloverfield-monster-looks-stupid

in the ending i saw i did see the monster eat Hudd (camra guy) but the 2 main charectures get away under the bridge. not getting atacked and killed by the little creatures... in seted there is explosions under the bridge then the island scene...

my thoughts are diffrent parts of the world are getting diffrent endings!

Steve said...

that "ending" is just two scenes of the movie put together. the monster eating hud, and the tunnel scene with the parasites. it is clearly a fake since marlena is no longer in the movie at the end. fake.

Anonymous said...

does anyone has the last scene video???????

Euphilena said...

the coney island scene appeared right after which scene?
i saw it in the cinema, but didn't see an coney island scene, does the falling thing happen in the background ?

Anonymous said...

Are we sure that the thing that fell into the water wasn't just another amusement at Coney Island?

It was odd, but I have the press kit for the movie and they refer to the monster as a 'baby' and that it was angry at having been awakened after thousands and thousands of years.
Wherever it came from, it wasn't a new arrival.

OK. I thought I'd help clear this up (if possible )

The Cloverfield ending goes like this:

-bomb blast, camera still runs but is covered in rubble.

-tape still runs, cuts to Rob and Beth at Coney Island. As Rob holds the camera look at the background at the shore there is a large black object that falls from the sky into the sea.

-tape ends, credits roll

-at the end of the credits, the garbled audio tape plays.

-film ends (for real)

Some people have mentioned another tape at the end. There isn't one, just the audio tape over the end credits. If I find a video I'll stick it up to help analyze it.

Drawer2000 said...

Also, here is the audio tape from the end of the credits:

okayy i heard that what happened was that the object falling into the water in the background of the coney island scene was a sattelite which disturbed the monster.

Talk of a sequal sounds sensible but has J.J. Abrams' love for mystery already scored out this idea?

Anonymous said...

Does anyone have a video of the ending where they are coney island?? I missed that part!

Anonymous said...

ok, i went to the movie last night, and at the last scene in coney island, the only thing going through my mind was "i bet the monster is going to be in the ocean" i knew it was.... but i didn't see it, i was looking but i must have been looking in the wrong place, does anyone have an image or video of it??!?1

MarvinK said...

If it did come from the sky, it sure was a lame monster. I just figured it was lame because they were trying to go with something that would come from the sea (ie: giant crawling squid).

I think the ending needed a little wrap up--but it definitely is a clever way to transition to a higher-budget sequel.

Anonymous said...

anyone know where to find the ending with the "thing" going into the sea?

mike said...

I just think JJ used some more material from the old Godzilla movies. If I remember correctly the Mysterians (aliens in the Godzilla movies) I think in Ghidrah the 3 Headed Dragon, when they transported Ghidrah and other monsters they moved them in "egg-shaped" force fields. I missed this part in the ending but its been described as an egg shaped object dropped from the sky. Could be how the aliens (if aliens unleashed this on newyork) transported the monster to earth/NewYork. Just a new suggestion. If this sounds familar to anyone else let me know.

papaspock said...

For those who watched EVANGELION, I'm not saying its right, but could it happen that this is an intro to the EVA's, if the monster is an "ANGEL" from the series, it falls from the sky to clean up "human mess," it is unharmed but the human weapons. Maybe its a start to a trilogy or more. In addition to all this, the falling from the sky happens a month before the events, I think it was the monster, and it was a cover up by the fake government, saying it was the sattelite.

Anonymous said...

No one else in the theater that I spoke to (including my wife and daughter) saw it. I did, and was beginning to think I had imagined it. I'm gonna see the movie again tomorrow just to be sure, but by reading what I read here it looks like I saw a small, round, black object near the upper right corner of the screen falling very quickly into the ocean near the horizon. I was looking just above the cruise ship as it passed left center to left and that was when I caught it.

Anonymous said...

i didnt catch it but the people sitting right next to me yelled HOLY SHIT DID YOU SEE THAT?! supposedly it fell from the sky. out of 12 friends watching the movie together only w noticed it so it was quite subtle.

Anonymous said...

A bunch of friends of mine spotted the thing falling from the sky. My theory would be the object is what initially woke up the creature

jo said...

I read somewhere that the falling satellite had the slusho ingredient in or on it, and the ingredient makes small fish grow huge, obviously, and thats what had created the monster back in ...April?, i dont remember the date on Conney Island. But yeah, not sure. Interesting how it took a few months to create a fish-beast that is invulnerable to missile attacks, we should get Iron Man to kick its ass!! word!

Anonymous said...

I'm confused i thought that when Rob was talking under the bridge he said it was April 22 (im only 50% shure) and the video with Coney Island was April 27 (and does anyone have the footage of Coney Island because i missed the black thing going into the water.Thanks)

Anonymous said...

Has anyone been on the 1-18-08.com webiste lately? New pictures have been added but I am totally confused by the two newest ones. The first one is of was looks like a dead sea monster being eaten by seaguls. The one below that is a man in a small row boat surrounded by blood red water. If anyone has any ideas about this that would be amazing!

How about this... does anyone know a projectionist from a movie theater, or someone that works in one that can add some clarity?

Anonymous said...

well it may have been the nuke because they said they were going to nuke it in therteen minutes after the chopper gets knoked down

Anonymous said...

it couldn't have been. first, the nuke would have disintegrated the camera, second, this was way before the whole cloverfield incident.

lestatdelc said...

Just saw the movie for the second time this evening. I didn't pot anything in the water in the closing shot (though if it was there, it must be very subtle). The Coney Island stuff is, as some have already mentioned, the earlier taped stuff on the tape that Hud uses to film the going away party that devolves into the catalogue of their dealing with the attack on NYC by "Cloverfeild". The Coney Island (and other "earlier" tape bleed through) are dated April 27th. The "party" / attack footage are dated May 22nd, a little over three weeks after ROb and Beth sleep together (the morning clip that begins the movie after the DoD digital slate header).

The ending begins with the initial bomb strike in the early morning at 6:43 am of May 23rd as Rob and Beth are holding each other and a fire ball hits and debris falls and buries the camera 90% under debris, they say they love each other and a larger fireball (nuclear?) hits the camera and the image halts and there is a broken digital "frame" that freezes... then pops back to the "end" of their day at Coney Island on April 27th with a shot looking out from the ferris wheel ("Wonder Wheel"...?) looking out over the midway at the ocean, this is where there would be a dark shape in the water or falling form the sky but neither the first or second time viewing the movie did I see anything. The camera moves back to the couple in the ferris wheel cage/car saying it ha been a really good day. The shot ends and snaps to the closeout DoD digital slate, and the credits begin. At the very end of the credits, there is a garbles digital audio snippet (no video) which is almost impossible to make out. Some web-pages are now saying that if you play it backwards it says "it's still alive" which, strikes me as pure BS, since the audio level of it would require a very high quality audio clip to be able to play backwards and post.

lestatdelc said...

"it couldn't have been. first, the nuke would have disintegrated the camera"

Sure it could have been. The initial bomb blast in the final bombing run could have been one of two small tactical nukes. The first collpase most of the bridge onto the couple and burries most fo the camera, and since the camera is buried almost 90% under debris could have been enough to keep the camera form being totl melted in the second "closeR" tac nuke blast.

Though the characters use the colliquiuela temr "tape" the opening DoD slate states this is video a recovered DV card. Add to that the fact that almost no video camreas in the past 10 years uses actual tape, it would be possible that these were indeed tactical nukes (which makes sense story wise since the earlier 0600 bob run was carpet bombing form the high altitude B2 spirit bomber run using conventional munitions that didn't kill (or even seriously harm) "Cloverfield" (which lunges and hits the helicopter carrying Rob, Beth and Hud which then goes down in Central Park, where some 43 mins. later (after Hud is killed by "Cloverfield") ROb and Beth tape their epithets on camera before the final air-strike.

MOAB. Look it up. That is what would have been used. Multiple actually.

Oh and the SD card is what was recovered. It said so in the beginning of the DoD Video Document which this movie in essence is.

Anonymous said...

Canon still uses cassettes, including their new HD line, so that's not true. But is was a card that was recovered.

Bringing to light if it was a nuke, even a tactical nuke, the resulting EMP would have fried it. They might have nuked after that (being completely buried by the concrete rubble from the second explosion would have protected it 'cause it would have absorbed the fequencies before it got to the device) but the first two wouldn't have been (it was exposed to open air still).

Anonymous said...

what part of the screen does the object at the end appear in??? left, right, top bottem?????

Anonymous said...

I have seen the movie twice now and watched the little vid you have and nothing falls from the sky.

There is no monster falling from the sky at the end of this flick!! This was totally made up by someone and the rumor is propagating around like wild fire. now you are all seeing things.

I went to the movie a second time today specifically to look for this and there is simply nothing there.

You people are looking so hard you are seeing things that don’t exist. At the most it might be some kind of black dot that was at your specific theature for a second or less. at least that is what i am guessing you are seeing.

Besides which a "thing" that falls out of the sky would not wait around for a month just off shore before it attacked. There are many other problems with this theory as well based on what the creature is in the first place.

Most of all though.. NOTHING SIGNIFICANT CAN BE SEEN FALLING FROM THE SKY AT THE END OF THIS MOVIE!

Yes something black and kind of bullet shaped splashed into the water on the right side of the frame. I didn't imagine it. It is definitely there.

Anonymous said...

At the credits ending of Cloverfield, *spoilers* the audio from the video cam says, "Help us!".
But when played backwards, it says, "It's still alive!" This happens after the end credits
of Cloverfield. Assuming the speaker was Rob, he suggests Cloverfield (the monster)
is still alive. This also suggests a sequel for Cloverfield 2! *Spoilers*

The Japanese oil company TAGRUATO drops a satellite (Chimpanz III) into the ocean as part
of viral marketing (shown at the end of the movie when Rob and Beth were on the ferris wheel).
TAGRUATO works with SLUSHO (a slush company), as the main ingredient for SLUSHO is found
at the satellite dropzone (deep ocean). While searching for satellite and ingredients, they
woke Cloverfield (the monster).

The main ingredient of Slusho apparently turns a tiny fish into a HUGE whale, which explains
the size of Cloverfield.

Rob apparently was going to be the Vice President of TAGRUATO in Japan.

For animals/fishes/insects to survive in the deepest ocean (very high boiling temperature),
they naturally have very high heat resistance. This explains how Cloverfield is able to
withstand numerous bombs and attacks from the army.

I definitly saw something cmoe from the sky at the end of the movie too but it was so subtle I didn't think much of it but now that I know all the backstory to it it's pretty interesting

Anonymous said...

To the people who are saying that nothing falls at the end, yes, something does, it strikes near the cruise ship. If you can't pinpoint the cruise ship, then it makes sense you can't pinpoint the falling object as it is near the horizon. It was very subtle and if I hadn't been looking for it the second time around, I still wouldn't have seen it.

Also, has anyone noticed that the tagruato.jp site is now inactive?

Anonymous said...

alright I have seen the movie twice, once the night it opened in Georgia, and once today in Virginia. At the end of the movie when the movie jumps over to the couple on coney island. the camera is pointing out to the ocean, to the left of the cruise ship, look more at the splash in the water than for the object falling...I promise you it is there. nothing in the movied was said about it, and it dosent even zoom in... But trust me the idiot on here screaming propaganda is just that an idiot

Anonymous said...

Well to imagine that something fell from the sky is not a crazy idea.

From what i've collected off of Wikipedia, the story is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. The only H.P. Lovecraft monster that anyone really cares about is Cthulu. Now, if i can remember correctly, Cthulu was a large ocean monster but had come from space. I believe that Cthulu's resting place is the same place that the Tagaruto oil apparatus was.

Not saying that the movie is a rip off of that, I'm just saying Abrams used the Cthulu story and background as inspiration, as do most directors and writers (and yes I know he didn't direct the move or write it).

i was messing around this website with the pictures http://www.1-18-08.com/

and when i centered the pic of the the ship that was destroyed i sware a sound was made...like a monster screaming. i was at work alone in my office with no radio playing when it happened...also did you know if you quickly move your mose left to right or right to left on a picture it flips over to the back?? some have things written on it

Hey Matt, since no one else even somewhat acknowledged my question about the pictures on 1-18-08.com, do you have any idea wat the picture is of the monster-like thing on the beach? Or the boat surrounded by blood?


And also, wasn't it decided before the movie that the monster is not Chtulu? So doesn't that mean that the thing that feel out of the sky very well could be the Tagruato satellite? To me thats the only logical explanation, because why else would there have been so much viral marketing with Tagruato and TIDO wave?

Anonymous said...

i saw this
3 times
i couldn't see the thing


i kept rewinding that video

freaking crap!!!

Anonymous said...

I unfortunately did not see the black thing fall into the water. My buddy did. And my wife did notice the Slusho shirt on Rob's brother (I think) right away. I just looked at the new photos on the 1-18-08 web page. The photo of the "monsters" being eaten on the beach are not monsters at all. They are Sperm whales. If you look closely at the one on the left, you can see the whale on his side with a huge bite out of his back. I did also stay to the very very end of the credits and heard the "help us". Whatever Abrams is up to, I would love to see another movie over all of this. This was one awsome intense movie.

Anonymous said...

I have really good eyes and it was ever tough for me to see but it is there. Top right part of the scene right next to the cruise shit. It's incredibly fast and at first your not sure what you just saw. Something quickly falls from the sky and then there is a huge splash on the horizon.

Anonymous said...

THANK YOU to whoever responded to the 1-18-08.com picture thing. And doesnt that also add to the idea that it is a satellite that falls?

Anonymous said...

Well yea, I cannot make out that its a sperm whale, but I'll take your word for it, because that would make sense.

Anonymous said...

Regarding the pictures on the 1.18.08 website. If you stay on the site for 6 minutes (i believe its 6, or close to) you will hear the monster roar. I don't think it has any bearing as to which picture you pull forward or move.

Can the pictures actually be flipped over?

actually, there is something falling into the ocean, monster or not, something definitley falls into the ocean. I saw the movie last night with NO prior spoilerage and caught it. The hundreds of people claiming the exact same thing is only proof that it's real.

Does anyone understand how the timing of all these events work? I mean the picutres on the 1-18-08.com site are all dated 1-18-08, but the movie takes place on what. May 22 or so? Also, all the entries on the characters myspaces stop on 1-18-08, and indicate that Rob's going away party is that nite.

I saw the thing fall into the water. Couldn't make out what it was. Wonder how all the websites and everything ties together. If they were to make a sequel it should be a straight up regular type movie, not another retread of what we just watched.

Who decides that they should play something backwards? No really, whether there is something or not being said, who is the first one to say "hey, let's play this thing backwards."? It's like the Abbey Road record, "PAUL IS DEAD"

I wish someone would post a video tracing the object's fall from the sky. I'm having a lot of trouble catching it myself.

I'm more inclined to believe the creature is of extraterrestrial origin than something that has been lurking in the ocean depths unseen all this time. Nothing about its physiology says marine animal. It is clearly quadrupedal. The design of the creature's front limbs are not suited for swimming. They are more appropriate for navigating uneven terrain. And its tail is more whip-like. Vastly different fromsomething like what you see on a crocodile, which has a thicker, heavy tail it uses to propel itself through water

Did anyone happen to capture a clip of monster from the air when the friends are flying overhead in the military chopper?

Anonymous said...

Anonymous said...

OK, my two cents...

The thickness of the creature's tail doesn't necessarily correlate to it being a marine animal.

Check out this amphibian:
http://www.oceanlight.com/spotlight.php?img=09788
Note that it developed EXTERNAL gills, is quadrupedal and has lungs for breathing out of water. The end shot of the monster shows those sacks on its head inflating and deflating and a section behind the sacks look kinda like gills... my point being that it could be from the deap sea. Most importantly J.J. Abrams said "... he's been down there in the water for thousands and thousands of years."

Tagruto never dropped a satellite into the water, they used a new imaging satellite to help the japanese government find a chunk of their satellite that fell into the atlantic. Tagruto's site is down, but check out the google cache.

Also the slusho ingredient WAS NEVER GIVEN TO A FISH WHICH THEN TURNED INTO A WHALE. read the slusho website, the fish whale thing was a dream the inventor had.

Who says the bomb at the end of the movie was nuclear?
If it was the camera and main characters would be at ground zero and that tape would have been vaporized.

AND also it had to have been recorded on a tape. That dude who commented that cameras have not used tapes for the past 10 years obviously never touched a camera this decade. The P2 cards that HD cameras can record on can't hold more than 16 minutes or so. AND those same cameras also have tape bays to record for longer times (i.e. 74 minutes...) in HDV. Plus if the camera was recording on a card then it wouldn't overwrite the rob and beth footage it would simply be full and require someone manually delete those clips because they would be saved as clips, a.k.a individual files on a card, on a tape however it's just low drop mpeg4 footage that can be written over accidentally. In any case both a card and a tape are written in such a way that emp would wipe clean, and no 6 feet of rocks blocks that.

I'm kinda curious too how the backwards audio thing gets figured out. My girlfriend and I were watching the credits and heard the clip, some people groaned that there wasn't any video or anything. She joked to me that you had to play it backwards like a Ozzy record or something... I laughed and immediately thought of the whole paul is dead thing!

Im confused about the whole getting awoken by the satellite in the deep ocean. On the cloverfield website in the "about the film" section it says DESCENDED upon the city.

Anonymous said...

There was most definitely something flying through the air and landing in the water. Not saying it was a monster or a satelite but something definitely lands in the water. It appears on the top-right side of the screen near the crusie ship/barge. It comes in fast and the splash is very small compared to the size of the projected picture. Didn't catch it the first time. Was seeing another movie and snuck in for the last 15 mins hoping to catch it the second time around. It still doesn't mean anything though because all the internet marketing and the stuff the creators are saying all seems to be contradictory.

Anonymous said...

what did the japanese man say to hub on camera?

Anonymous said...

I think that the message on the back of the picture of the Japanese dude on 1-18-08.com is a recipe for the cake or whatever he made in the pic. Unfortunately, I can only read Katakana and Hirigana, so I saw the word for "cups" next to measurements (like "1/2 cup"), but no mention of Slusho. If anyone really knows Japanese, a translation would be amusing, at least.

my theory is that the one japanese company dropped the monster on us.

Okay. I got the movie online and I am in the process of looking for the object falling, then I will post some links to pics.

Matt said...

to the person who comemnted about the 1/18/08 site pics

i have no idea what that could possibly be...it looks like some giant animal that has been destroyed...looks like a giant tail too

the other pic is the sailors leaving the Chiutu(spelling) drilling station after it was attacked and destroyed. it seems to be taken from the same video that showed the destruction, but in the video that ship was also destroyed

Matt said...

and by the way, keep going back to that 1/18/08 website...new pictures and stuff keeps being added. when i was on it yesterday there was no Japanese writing on the back of the pic of the chef...now there is

its my guess that more stuff is added writing, pictures etc

omg are you serious? So many countless people are wrong on this....the monster is NOT a whale!!! and nor is it some mutated product from slusho!!! lol!!! I watch monster movies all my life and this is the most original design I have seen, never mind how cloverfiled delivers with the nuances of what we live with in this day and age....this is the Godzilla of the new millennium. I saw the movie and the monster is incredible!! and a sequel is on the way! pay attention at the end! If not pay attention to the record setting at the box office!

Ok so i work at the movie theatre by my place, and tonight I'm gunna just quickly watch the end of cloverfield when it's getting out, before I clean the theatre, so i'll check it out and confirm it. But from what I've heard, J.J. Abrahms said that the monster was lying dormant on the ocean floor, and the satellite falls into the ocean and causes the monster to grow to 3/4 the size of a skyscraper, and then it awakens and comes out of the sea. I'll check it out tonight though.

Paul said...

For all those naysayers that claim that there is absolutely nothing falling into the water at the end check out this, its from an interview Matt Reeves, the director, did with comingsoon.net

CS: Any possibilities for a "Cloverfield" sequel?

Reeves: This was so fun 'cause we'd never done anything like it, and I think we'd want to find a similar challenge, to find a way to have its roots in this but be fresh and new, otherwise you're just repeating yourself. There's a moment on the Brooklyn Bridge, and there was a guy filming something on the side of the bridge, and Hud sees him filming and he turns over and he sees the ship that's been capsized and sees the headless Statue of Liberty, and then he turns back and this guy's briefly filming him. In my mind that was two movies intersecting for a brief moment, and I thought there was something interesting in the idea that this incident happened and there are so many different points of view, and there are several different movies at least happening that evening and we just saw one piece of another. That idea sort of tickled me. We'll have to see if anyone would want a sequel. If the movie does well and we find a compelling reason to do so then it would be fun to do a sequel.

Did you see the thing in the last shot? In the final shot there's a little something, and I don't wanna say what it is. The final shot before the titles. The stuff at Coney Island, there's a little something there and I don't want to give it away 'cause the fun is sort of to find it, but I will say this: there's a funny thing, you look at the shot and until you see it you don't see it and you really don't see it and obviously you don't 'cause none of you have seen it, but once you see it you'll never stop seeing it.

CS: It's the thing dropping in the water, right?

Reeves: Ahh, you saw it.

and another thing, i think after about 5-10 minutes of being on the site, you can hear the monster roar.

Looking at the pics on 1-18-08.com, the photo with the workers fleeing from wreckage on a boat looks as if they are fleeing a sinking oil platform. Wonder if it is one of the Tagruato Corp drilling platforms referred to on the http://tagruato.jp/deepsea2.php site?
If so how can an object that falls just of the coast of Coney Island affect something that is either located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge or the Puerto Rico Trench? Either way, an interesting web this film and it's marketing is weaving.

All this Tagruato and TIDO Wave stuff is so confusing. What does any of it have to do with the movie? Also, did anyone notice that the TIDO Wave website is back up and working?

nuke, unlikely.

however the US military does have ordinance that is just short of nuclear devastation without the radioactive side effects as seen during the gulf war.

most notably the "MOAB"

fasho, go to the 1-18-08.com website and after about 5 min. theres a ten second long monster screach... freaked the hell out of me.

anyway, i went and saw the Cloverfield the night it came out and at first hated it. I felt sick to my stomach watching the home-video footage and i just wanted to get a good look at the freakin monster. i wasnt paying attention to whatever falls out of the sky at coney, but i think i might go back and watch it a second time just to try to understand things better.

oh and i dont know about all the satellite- oil mining submarine searching crap. thats a whole lot to think about while watching a movie; seriously, its not a theatre full of sherlock holmes'. the explination of the monster must be far more simple than all that.

I thought that the thing that fell from the sky was the egg of the monster--wwhat satelite thing are you guys talking about?

Emily Rose's Chiro said...

With regards to the second to last comment above - there are numerous videos online that were created as part of the ARG/viral marketing campaign that were designed to flesh out the 'backstory' of the Cloverfield movie for those who wanted to go dig for it (check out some of the "news clips" of the drilling station being destroyed - you can see hints of the monster in one or two of the clips). The whole thing - TIDOwave, Tagruato, the station, Seabed Nectar, etc. - is all obviously very deliberately structured to fill in the gaps in the story.

As far as the bit at the end with something falling into the ocean - I think enough people have seen it and mentioned it (including the director of the movie itself) that it's probably safe to say it IS there.

Lastly, the guy up above who said no camcorder in the past ten years uses tape has obviously never owned a camcorder in the past ten years. Two letters for ya bud - DV. :P

Anonymous said...

i loved the movie. however, 1 thing bothers me.

in the opening credits the DoD credits say it was an SD card (flash memory card) from a camera. well, part of a nuclear blast (if it was a nuke) is the EMP (electromagnetic pulse). in a normal world, an EMP will fry all electronics. any memory cards would have been erased.

Emily Rose's Chiro said...

^^^ is absolutely right. Not to mention that a nuke would like have vaporized the camera. Even a small, "tactical" one would have generated enough heat to destroy it, or damage it enough to render the footage unretrievable.

Nowhere in the film do they say they used a nuclear weapon. They simply state that they are going to 'level' the city. MOAB's would have done that quite well.

Speculation 1:
Just the fact that this involves Japan might suggest Godzilla, I know Cloverfield might not be, but Godzilla always needed an enemy to fight. In addition CF could be just a pre-cursor for GZ, since JJ is working on Star Trek, perhaps CF 2 or GZ will be after Star Trek.

Speculation 2:
The thing that fell from space was either Cloverfield or ANOTHER monster. The director has said in an interview that #1 cloverfield is from Space! #2 The monster is actually a child, disoriented and lost, so Cloverfield is from outter space, if the 'object' is CF or not remains to be seen.

Theory 3:
The next movie might either be
#1 the aftermath of the bombing or more depressingly #2 There is a scene where Hudd's camera and another camera meets along the bridge, perhaps the next movie will be of the same time frame, perhaps a little more from a different vantage point, another perspective! (Which will than lead to #3 most likely!)

Cloverfield Ending Credits - Spoilers

At the credits ending of Cloverfield, *spoilers* the audio from the video cam says, "Help us!". But when played backwards, it says, "It's still alive!" This happens after the end credits of Cloverfield. Assuming the speaker was Rob, he suggests Cloverfield (the monster) is still alive. This also suggests a sequel for Cloverfield 2! *Spoilers*

The Japanese oil company TAGRUATO drops a satellite (Chimpanz III) into the ocean as part of viral marketing (shown at the end of the movie when Rob and Beth were on the ferris wheel). TAGRUATO works with SLUSHO (a slush company), as the main ingredient for SLUSHO is found at the satellite dropzone (deep ocean). While searching for satellite and ingredients, they woke Cloverfield (the monster).

People who were at the party in the beginning of the movie, were seen wearing SLUSHO shirts. Rob apparently was going to be the Vice President of TAGRUATO in Japan.

The main ingredient of Slusho apparently turns a tiny fish into a HUGE whale in Ganu's (he found the nectar) dream, which explains the size of Cloverfield. *Update* The main ingredient is a deep sea nectar.

*Update* Because the ingredient was discovered on the deep ocean floor, under amazing pressure and in the most extreme cold, Ganu knew he had to serve the ingredient in a near frozen state to preserve its freshness. Thus the idea of Slush (Slusho)!

For animals/fishes/insects to survive in the deepest ocean (very high boiling temperature), they naturally have very high heat resistance. This explains how Cloverfield is able to withstand numerous bombs and attacks from the army.

Cloverfield refers to the field formerly known as Central Park. Clovers are usually prone to grow at places after bombing. Thus the term "Clover" and "field" referring to park.

*Update* Slusho is a very addictive drink, with signs of steroid drug like effects. Makes people stronger, constantly happy, have happy dreams and finally... "SLUSHO makes my stomach explode with happy!!" (Remember Marlena's stomach?)

it wasnt the cloverfield monster falling it was a sattelite that crashed the water and suddenly it woke up the beasts but there where two or 3 giant monsters not 1 cause in the bridge 1 more comes out from the water
and when the liberty head crashes in iheard someone say its a water god it has been buried for 1,000 years you cant deafeat it with fire
thats what i heard so it might be wrong about that guy

Anonymous said...

I obviously do not know for sure, but I'm pretty sure that if there was more than one monster Matt Reeves (the director) would have indicated so. He seems to make it pretty clear that theres only one when ever he talks about "it" not them. Also to the person who said that the monster is from outer space, I'm not saying your wrong, though i personally think all the information points to it being a sea monster, but when did the director supposedly say it was from outspace. I do not recall ever reading that. And it could be a baby seperated from its mother thats in the ocean, its mother doesn't have to be in space.

Anonymous said...

so it could be the cloverfield monster falling from space, or it could be a piece of the satellite that fell into the water and awoken the monster from its hibernating, hmm, thats weird

Anonymous said...

Don't know if this is a re-post. I didn't have time to read through all the comments. This whole Slusho thing...did everyone catch that someone (pretty sure it was Rob's brother) was wearing a Slusho teeshirt at the party? Also that theory about Rob going to Japan to be Vice Prez of Tagruato is awesome.

they made the lungs on the monster very noticable, which only confirms that it is not from space. why would he have lungs if there is no air in space to breath?

Anonymous said...

Well, I've been swishing this whole thing around in my hand, and here's what I've come up with. The Tagruato satellite chunk fell on Cloverfield's mother, killing her. That explains both the image of the rotting corpse on the beach and the bloody spot of water under the ship. Now, tell me, if something killed your mother, would you be all that happy about it? I'm thinking Cloverfield acted out of the thirst for revenge. The Slusho thing still hasn't had enough time to sink in yet, but I'll think of something, believe me, I'll think of something.

lamest thing happened to me. i saw the movie once and NOBODY SAW IT. but my friends who saw the movie somewhere else claimed they saw the thing fall from he sky. so i went to see the movie again and this time i looked for it but i missed it again!!! aaargg im so pissed. plus i never stayed for the ending credits for this "its still alive" message.

Regarding to the 1-18-08 thing.
I think thats the day the movie premiered.

Also. For the people saying the movie was not a tape. Rob saying in the movie to Hudd
"Did you switch the tapes?"
It in the party scene somewhere.

Well. Figures when i say this movive earlier tonight, the top right was the one palce i never looked. But my bros freind had claimed something was there.
Ive watched vid but was unable to catch iT. mAybe it was too fuzzy. Idk.

Anonymous said...

Something fell from the sky. i don't think it was a Satellite because it wouldn't fall that fast, it would be burning from re-entry. It also wasn't a whale or something jumping because the splash size and it's distance from the island would make that whale extremely over sized.

Also when the thing ate Hud (heads up display, huh huh, get it? I'm a Gamer nerd) He was the size of its mouth, but when it was destroying the city- the creature was twice the size. GET YOUR SCALE RIGHT!!! and if a monster was attacking the city, i wouldn't have the camera pointed at my friends...

Anonymous said...

So on the picture site - they are definitely sperm whales that have chunks taken out of them.

Also another thing about the monster(s) - the Brooklyn Bridge was destroyed by what looked like a giant tail, and during the beginning you see several shots of what looks like a thick greenish tail.

However in the rest of the movie and other shots of the monster, it has no tail & is more of a lighter, grayish color, i.e. helicopter scene and the bye-bye Hud scene.

Granted it was hard to see anything clearly, but could there have been more than one monster? Just a random thought...

CloverfieldFan said...

Ok, while on the Slusho! site, I stumbled through the quotes. One was "Slusho make my stomach explode with happy!", "Slusho make my toes like the whales", "Slush makes me plusho "as plump (big), and "Cranberry Crush flavor would be infectious."

The first and last could be reffering to the bite effects from the parasite, and the second referring to the monster? I'm not saying it's a whale.

There was also talk about the importance of 6.

18 is 6 x 3. The sixth monther after January (Febuary being number one) is July. Minus the 3 would be April, the month where something fell from the sky. I'm not saying this is right, I could be totally wrong. Please don't criticize like "dude thats the dumbest thing ever you suck." Reply with your opinion, but be generous.

And another thing! There are 6 main characters:

1)Rob

Thoughts said...

I think the makers are trying to confuse us. Maybe tel us lies. make suer we dont figure this thing out.

Cuz they say nevah say anytihng about more than one monster.

I had a thought. think about this.
When the monster kills hud (and btw...he doesnt eat him! he kills him dammit!) it was daylight, so considering from the evidence we have that he could be a marine animal, maybe...just maybe..he could have shrunk becouse the heat or dryness?
Another thing is, maybe theres more than one. Or maybe it multiplied.

One more thing-
when the monster eats hud...maybe the camera caused it to look strange?

Thoughts...
Opinions ppl?

Thoughts said...

Edit---
at the one more thing- part.
i meant to say strange and small. :p

Nikk said...

It DOES fall from the sky! I work at the theater and I've watched the end a dozen times.
It lands just to the left of the cruise ship right on the horizon line. There's no question that it's the monster. My question is why did this thing hide for a month? The Coney Island footage is somewhere around April 27 and the attack footage is something like May 22.
By the way, remember when they're in the tunnle and Hud says, "For all we know it flew here from another planet. Like Superman."

Anonymous said...

I think it just looks smaller in that scene because you have nothing else in the picture to compare it's size to.... I thought the same thing at first, but you could see it as being bigger if you try to look at it that way

Anonymous said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owU-14lUkeQ

There's a video I found yesterday on YouTube. So far the best one on YouTube to actually see the splash, as the owner of the video points out where to look and even tells you when the splash is. He also puts it in slow motion. Just watch most of it. It's I think 7 minutes long but it's mostly just clips of the splash scene. He talks during it asking for feedback and stuff. Anyway, just thought this would help.

said...

i saw the youtube video but im not really sure where to look. (left of the little boat?)

clarification please. but one thing is for sure is that i saw a splash left of the little boat. is that where it falls? left of the little boat?

john said...

man forget the movie. what kind of camera were they using? that thing took a beating. that thing was dropped so many times, and the battery life on it was off the hook. i need to get one of those babies.

Anonymous said...

okay i dont mean to be like annoying but there is deffinately only 1 monster cause like i said the derector only refers to the monster as IT not THEM and for whoever keeps writing about that tail THE MONSTER HAS A TAIL i dont know how you could have missed it it clearly has a long tail when they show it from above

omms said...

The battery life on the camera was pretty normal, the movie is 1hr24mins and tapes go up to 1hr30mins. I use my sony handycam all the time. I recently used it on a 3day road trip with my buddies and I only charged it once, which was before I left and it lasted the whole trip. And the movie was just 1 night, so there was nothing special about the battery. But as far as what camera they were using, i don't know, probably a one of those small HD cameras.

AZH said...

YES!!!

I noticed it too ...

I went to the movies with my wife and she had NO IDEA what I was talking about ...

I then later talk to my brother about the movie and when I brought up the ending and something falling from the sky ... he had no idea what I was talking about either ...

Is that why he is moving to Japan?

Guys!!! I found a new video no one has posted yet!

Keep in mind this is a FAKE news cast, but it was created as basically another clue to the puzzle.

It might also show the splashes that happened at Coney Island?

Anonymous said...

thats Chaui Station, or the drilling station that was posted about above. Though that does bring up a good point...maybe the thing falling out of the sky isnt falling out of the sky at all. Maybe its the parts of the station being thrown in the air and falling back into the ocean as seen in the video? i know its a long shot but its due to its closeness to NYC

Anonymous said...

In case no one noticed it, a lot of the articles from the Tagruato website that was linked in the second comment contain references to Slusho, or whatever the drink is called. One alternative name for the movie was Slusho, or something like that (I think I read that on IMDb). So it MUST be more than a coincidence. And, interestingly, the first article is about a person surviving an attack, and it's events seem somewhat similar to how you could describe the monster's attack on New York. Definitely interesting.

pete_of_god said...

I have spent time trying to find this intervies that hasnt been written on some webpage. An actual video that show JJ Abrams himself stating this was a satellite that fell from the sky to awaken the monster or deep sea drilling from this tagruato site. If anything that has more to do with "the Host". No actual evidence links any of this to Cloverfield. feel free to prove me wrong. As a projectionist i have studdied that last scene well. It is infact the monster. As the poster for clover states, "something has found us" not "something has been asleep for thousands of years and awakend by a satellite falling from the sky by a japanese fish company that makes slush puppies". Also in the top right hand corner of the poster the monster was there the whole time and it shows it over new york city coming down from the sky. To clear up dates. the monster attacked just after midnight which would make it 23rd of may. The video of coney island at the end says April 27th. Thats 25 days it was down there for probably learning and planning its attack. Thats right, it was an invasion.....hence the distruction and chaos it caused. That would explain it smashing up New York and sending its little friends down into small places the big bastard couldnt fit. So stop with all this crap as its a film about a monster attacking new york/love story. that simple. doesnt get any deeper. Your not meant to know any of the monsters background as its shown through a fucking hand held camera. As a soldier stated "we are not sure what it is, but its winning" and Rob says at the end "if you find this tape you probably know more than i do" which we dont. sense the irony?. As i stated earlier if you have proof to show im wrong please dont be shy and give it to me. :)

Golesy said...

I have to agree. Look at lost. J.J took three seasons to reveal any answers (don't know WHY I'm still watching it) and the answers he did reveal made little sense. he probably had no idea where he was going in terms of story, but was more interested in the fear part of the movie. and it wouldn't have seemed so real if Bill Nye the Science guy stopped in for a visit to explain everything (that would be funny though...). The movie had no reference to a satellite, or slush puppies. I don't think J.J has the capacity to think of something like that and not drag it out forever.

pete_of_god said...

It would make it far to easy otherwise. why be so secretive with a project that at one point had no title. Then give everything away like that. the chances of a satellite falling from the sky at that spot where the monster has supposed to have been for thousands of years giving all the under water earthquakes that happend never woke the him up is about as possible as cloverfield really happening!.

Anonymous said...

but a monster falling out of outer space and planning an attack on the city for 25 days is clearly much more possible! (sarcasm incase that was not clear)

silith said...

got the movie on my computer and have watched the coney island scene a few times at the end, nothing falls out of the sky, nothing. u just see the shore, hear what sounds like the monster and a watch alarm beeping then rob points the camera towards himself.

pete_of_god said...

I dont mean to be rude buy either the copy on your computer is unclear or maybe you should open your eyes next time. The MONSTER, and yes i did say monster. I also didn detect a hint of sarcasm...obviously i cannot state why it took 25 days to attack new york. maybe it had to unpack or something, but get real all you satellite believers!!! it that satellite did go out of orbit....why all there to wake a fucking monster thats been asleep since the dawn of time. JJ Abrams does like to play it mysterious as we all know, but come on give the guy credit. back to all those "i watched it thousands of times and couldnt see anything" people. its falls to the right of the screen and lands in the water just near the horizon and to the left of that big white ferry. Have another look....jesus!

silith said...

go to www.movie-blog.org to watch the movie. thats where i got it from. and watch the last scene again, on that copy of the film nothing drops out of the sky. as i said all you hear is a watch alarm going off and what sounds like the monster screeching. i dont doubt you or others, its just you cant see it on the movie i watched, and its pretty clear.

silith said...

direct link to the film if you need it. check and see if anything drops from the sky.

pete_of_god said...

Well firstly, i am a projectionist. Piracy is bad ok and i have watched the offical film at the cinema a number of times. I have no desire for the link you you obviously doubt me so i am going to be nice and give you some advice. Go spend some money for all those hard people in the film industry that bust their ass off to give us these great films to watch. You will then see that something falls from the sky.

silith said...

dont worry i will go and see the film, but thats only because its a movie that deserves to be seen on a big screen. im not doubting you at all, as there are a lot of people who have seen the thing drop out of the sky. maybe they made different endings, i mean it is possible. as for the actual movie i felt let down a little by the ending as it leaves you with questions (although thats probably the intent) and its rally not the nicest of feelings if im honest. still a great watch though, with some memorable momments. deffo the best film of the last 4 or 5 months.

pete_of_god said...

If you go see the movie just keep looking over by the ferry. it happens fast so keep aware. There is only one ending. i heard that the one posted on the net misses 5,6 mins from the end. It was the movies intention, could even had been JJ Abrams intention not to give to much away. Again this is due to the fact that it was recorded all through a handheld camera. This will leave so many questions unanswered, perhaps for a sequel or even several? as im sure many people documented evens of that night. The films was amazing, it worked. One man fighting against a monster to save his woman. They died as they told each other they loved one another. Perfect and all this crap that it was a satellite and this Tagruato Link with Cloverfield upsets me and as much JJ Abrams must be finding all this amusing im sure he never intended such a great film to have a conclusion like people are saying. As i said dont read to much into it.

Anonymous said...

i dnt get how u can be so close minded! its perfectly okay if u dont believe its a sattelite but wat is so wrong with accepting that it is a possiblity. i mean it is a movie about a monster attacking the city any thing can happen. for the record the whole story with the sattelite is that tagruato dropped it out of the sky intentionally in search of additional locations for seabed nectar it was Chaui Station drilling that woke up the monster check out the chaui station video you can see the monster beneath the collapsing station (http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=9a8_1199705318) and the whole tagruato and slusho thing is connected to the movie since u obviosuly dnt believe this check out www.jaimieandteddy.com (the password is jllovesth) these are short webcam videos made by jaimie who is in the movie and on one of the pictures on 1-18-08.com shes the blond girl with rob and his brother if you dont want to watch all the videos make sure u watch number 5 it clearly shows there is a connection between tagruato and cloverfield....if none of these things cause you to atleast accept the possiblity of it being a satellite or at least that tagruato and cloverfield are connected, u are clearly jsut a stubborn ass :)

golesy said...

perhaps it is connected to something else, but i will just stick with my alien death bringer. this is a movie i don't want to pick apart as many people seem to be doing. I like understanding things on a scientific level, but for this i think not knowing is the best answer. it shows kinda shows that there are things out there we may never be able to fully explain, and makes us seem that much smaller in the grand scheme.

pete_of_god said...

Thank you for your comment there. Also for the websites you gave me. I have seen that oil tanker Tagruato video lots of times. Again no evidence that it points to Cloverfield. Please dont mistake me for being closed minded or be a stubborn ass. As i film buff i respect most movies and Cloverfield is certainly one of them. There is no possiblity that its in anyway linked. The www.jamieandteddy.com page is just a search engine and has given me no proof. Why i ask are people so persistant in needing an explination?. JJ Abrams stated in his interview that he wanted to create a monster for himself. As he and his child saw the Godzilla franchise in japan. if it had been linked to Tagruato or slusho i think there would be a true to life statement from him. Slusho i believe featured in Heroes. It may possibly be linked to that. Understand and accept that Cloverfield is seperate from all of this and it was the monster that landed in the sea. End of.

Anonymous said...

firstly i apologize i spelled "jaimie" wrong i nthe site i gave you the real site is jamieandteddy.com click the picture on the site and it will ask for a password the password is jllovesth make sure to watch video 5 it shows a direct connection between this girl (who is in the movie and 1-18-08.com) to both tagruato and slusho in addition slusho is in Cloverfield as it was in Alias...not jsut lost ALSO check out robs myspace the link is http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.ListAll&friendID=201275979 in his newest blog he says how he got a job as vice president of Slusho (is that not a direct connection between slusho and Cloverfield? well two connections actually if you include jamie) and if you go to tagruato.jp it not only gives information about the corporation (including its drilling locations and i believe sattelite news too but im not 100% sure) but it also says that its subsidiary is Slusho! which in turn, connects tagruato to cloverfield.....now you very well may be correct, it mite not have been a sateliite seen in the end and there may not even be a clear explanation from all of this, but it is all directly connected!

Anonymous said...

I read that someone saw this movie twice and didn't see anything falling from the sky at the end. I saw it the first time I saw the movie and all these posts seem to confirm I'm not delusional.

Pertaining to the satellite misunderstanding, I say this because what fell from the sky isn't known. Taken from:

http://tagruato.jp/headlines.php?story=news_08_01_03

"Tagruato used the Hatsui satellite to try to identify a rogue piece that is thought to have fallen off of the Japanese Government's "ChimpanzIII" satellite. Although Hatsui’s work has not yet been able to confirm the identity of the fallen piece, Tagruato scientists and engineers are busily trying to track and recover the fragment. According to Hatsui data, it disappeared into the Atlantic Ocean late last week."

Notice how clear it is that they don't know what fell from the sky, it could be the monster, meteor, piece of a satellite, or a biochemical weapon from aliens that mutates primitive, aggressive, animals into a cloverfield like monster. WE DON'T KNOW.

This movie really encapsulates you into the story so you desire to know more, the sad part is we probably wont know 100% fact until its given to us by a sequel or dvd specials.

I really hope the answers to the dozens of questions are as good as the movie.

P.S. Rob and Beth better be alive...

Ok, I would just like to say how glad i am that people are going so out of their way to piece all this together. I ask you to now understand this, believe what you want to believe....it is easy for somebody to create a website about anything as we all know. So firstly i was given a site called www.1-18-08.com which is just a site containing a nice assortment of pictures of scenes from the Tagruato oil rig disaster and Cloverfield which you can move them around with your mouse as they are layerd. How nice, again this shows no proof they are linked. Also a website called www.jamieandteddy.com which shows videos. Well done on that, yes it shows the same girl from Cloverfield, but i have done a search for teddy hansen and jamie the girl to see if they are the characters in Cloverfield, will also look out on the end credits when i see the film for the forth time tuesday and see if their are the same characters. if not then it will certainly prove one of use to be right. You are also asking me to look at a my space page of Rob from the movie. yeah because that a hard evidence. Unfortunately i am still not convinced. This site along with the other and the Tagruato site have no actual evidence and by that i mean JJ Abrams or Matt Reeves in clear video streaming or on TV stating that these sites are genuine and Tagruato has anything to do with Cloverfield. So why are people so easily swayed by this?. Along with the people who dont see anything fall into the water. Keep watching and one day it will happen for you. Because trust me its there. Please stop showing lack of respect for a great movie and vision created by these two talented people by aload of bogus websites that deep down you know show no proof what you are saying is true. It was no satellite. I cannot stress this enough. Wait for the sequel, if one is made and you will all realise how ridiculous you sound. As it will certainly not be about this damn Tagruato company. Mutated fish or lizards.....something done by man, or even i monster that has been living on our planet for years to finally awaken and destroy mankind has all been done. Although an alien from space has also been done, nothing (in modern day of film making) on such a large scale has been done like Cloverfield. One monster comes to earth and starts to destroy NYC. Maybe there will be more or this thing is just the only one as it certainly seems strong enough to take on the american millitery.

Ok there is definately something deeper that we are supposed to try and figure out here. That is why J.J. created these viral sites and put the object falling. So anyone saying that there is nothing to it is wrong.
I think it is the monster that fell, because a sattelite drop out there would not go very deep. That water is not very deep. If the monster actually came from some spot in the see he probably would have came from some of the deepest parts of it. Like the Mid-Atlantic Ridge or the trench near japan.
I think it is the monster also because there wasn't that much splash. maybe the monster could dive. I don't think a sattelite can dive.
Also what are the dates of the newscast about the driling sation being destroyed.

pete_of_god said...

So JJ Abrams has now apprently created all these sites? my god. This monster is not from our planet. It was not created by man. It found us as the Cloverfield poster states. Come on people, Tagruato is not linked to this movie. It was not mentioned in Cloverfield. In answer to your question the Oil rig disaster was 27th of december. But how does this have any relevance to Cloverfield. i shall piece together my evidence on tuesday and examine Cloverfield. I shall listen to the new feeds in the electronic store and also look out for the names jamie and teddt hansen at the party and end credits. finally the background for posters, billboards. anything that possibly makes a link between this company, jamieandteddy.com and Cloverfield. will get back to you all.

So here is a VERY Dteailed Video of the the object crashing into the ocean. Like Rob says make an L from the little ship and see it crash...you will see a wave. He slows it down for you too

pete_of_god said...

Regaurdless of what people say. The monster did fall into the water. It was no satellite, it is not linked to Tagruato. I will prove this tuesday so please hang on for my feedback then :) thanks.

Gumption said...

Pete_of_god,

Go back and read my post, Tagruato inc, is involved but the only known relation to cloverfield is that Rob was going to work for them and they were helping identify a rogue object that is thought to of fallen from a Japanese government satellite. Again, they are related, the site is part of the movie.

Gumption said...

Sry Pete my post if it isn't under my tag ends with
"P.S. Rob and Beth better be alive..."

pete_of_god said...

Gumption, prove it?. show me actual evidence that has not been written by somebody on a website that Cloverfield and Tagruato are linked. By that i want to see the words come from either JJ Abrams or Matt Reeves in a video interview. If you have a link for that go right at head and give that to me. I understand that this website jamieandteddy has the girl in it from Cloverfield. Also she mentions Tagruato, And that Tagruato mentions a satellite, an oil rig disaster etc, etc....Not to mention this site containing pictures of both Cloverfield and Tagruato on a site thats labeled what Cloverfield was once called.. I can see why people are sucked in to believing this. But no where in Cloverfield the movie was any off this mentioned. In no interview with the creators of Cloverfield was this mentioned. Write ups in magazines published at my cinema, in shops or reviews in magazines and newspapers was anything mentioned. I am basing this all on real evidence. All you have are websites made up by people. if the names of teddy hanson and jamie appear in cloverfield when i see it, i refuse to believe such nonsense and feel you need to understand that you have linked Tagruato and jamieandteddys video dairies to the wrong movie. Sorry.

go on the T.I.D.O site and read the comments left on the articles. very interesting...any comments?

golesy said...

Ok. maybe the cloverfield monster is linked to the satellite. perhaps it was hitching a ride until it got near NYC (for some reason) and dropped off then. Tagruato only new that something fell, but not what. of course i don't like the link theory to begin with. also, when were the sites last updated? maybe they were sites for an original story that was ditched for the new cloverfield?

pete_of_god, lookin forward to hearing all the facts...

pete_of_god said...

I went to the http://tidowave.com/blog/ if this is the one you meant?. Interesting yes...i guess, but nothing to do with Cloverfield. Gosley, thank you for that, when were these sites last updated?. You shall get the facts reguardless of whether i turn out to be wrong or not.

pete_of_god said...

i wish to apologies to everybody on this site. They are linked. I was wrong to doubt.

golesy said...

Really...Hopefully it's still an alien, cause if people wanted a story about ancient monsters form the sea, surface would still be on. (that was an awesome show, in fact it was a LOT like cloverfield...THERE ARE NO ORIGINAL THOUGHTS ANYMORE!!!)

so pete_of_god, you seem good at explaining things and I'm too lazy to to check the sites my self (plus I'm on dial-up)what hard facts can we pull from this new evidence in order to properly shed light on what we know and change theories accordingly?

golesy said...

oh, and also you weren't wrong to doubt. There was no reference in the movie and unless you have hours to surf the web you wouldn't have any idea there was anything else to the story. there is no need for apology.

pete_of_god said...

Well yes that is true. Atleast now i know. I get to once again enjoy watching Cloverfield on tuesday without having to examine it. :)

golesy said...

where is the poster with the monster?
i can't find it.

Anonymous said...

pete of god, im glad that you finally accepted the connection, as i said, you very well may be correct that it did come from outer space, but there is a definate collection i dont know what finally made you believe it but im glad soemthing did (btw, im the one thats been giving you all the grief...and the sites...since the beginning lol) oh and to charlie boy the drilling station that supposedly woke the monster was supossed to be located on the mid atlantic ridge, so it does kinda make sense...minus the error in time consistency

pete_of_god said...

it was the last video on www.jamieandteddy.com. look on videos for you tube. seach of monster sighting in clouds

Anonymous said...

what am i supossed to see? the movie poster? if so ive seen it before and it is kinda similar though i do not believe it was intentional

pete_of_god said...

yeah it probably wasnt just what people have posted i guess. I looked today on our large posters at work. i just looks like smoke to me. lol

Anonymous said...

just so all the people know about the ending and what falls from the sky has bn a bit of a mistery but i looked it up and the director stated that it is a satalite falling into the sea which disrupts the monster that destroys manhattan i was wondering how could a monster like that fall from the sky and be an alien with out it havin wingsd of somesort but it is suppoesd to be a sort of dinosaur that has being sleeping for millions of years and this satalite has created a disruption of sumsort which the monster has responded to and has basically gone on a rampage so the footage at the end of this film is rob capturing the incident which awoke the monster which later killed his brother along with millions of people
thanks for reading

pete_of_god said...

sucks being them! Tagrauto's fault. it was their satellite lol

Anonymous said...

haha pete i love that your defending the satellite theory now! hahaha

pete_of_god said...

well as i said i was happy for somebody to prove me wrong. which you did. :)

Anonymous said...

haha well i guess its just rare that someone sticks to their word

golesy said...

GAAAH!! but why didn't it burn up on re-entry? and why couldn't a link be made IN THE MOVIE!!! I HATE YOU J.J ABRAMS!!!I think it would have been better if they explained it was the satellite instead of putting an un-detailed monster shaped blob falling from the sky? it would've helped give the movie its the MAIN STORYLINE! I checked out the sites and have found no interesting back story, so I'll just keep lying to myself and say it was a genetically engineered alien sent to destroy all of man kind.

but why do sleeping creatures always destroy humanity? Mainly New York. both Godzilla in the 1999 film and king kong attacked that city. if you live in NY, you might want to move soon, just in case.

and is it just me, or does that security code when you post keep getting longer?

pete_of_god said...

I saw cloverfield for the 4th time...noticed something new. Jason, Robs brother had a Slusho t shirt on. Also that girl from Jamieandteddy.com never made it to the party. As in video 11 she mentioned going to lilly's as she had a thing on. She was also possibly this "friend" who Marlene was meant to be meeting up with. (you know the girl that hud liked who got bit and popped). I need some answers. I was wondering if anybody knows the date in which the Chaui station disaster?.

Anonymous said...

its me again lol its suppossed to be december 27th i have no idea how the times of all these events are supossed to add up its so confusing

pete_of_god said...

I know, thats what i thought. dec 27th, so then the satellite dropping into the water just off coney island was april 27th and attack on NYC was 23rd.

So by that then the monster could not have attacked chaui station? as it was meant to be woken up by deep sea drilling by tagruato trying to find their satellite? am i correct?

Anonymous said...

honestly ive got no idea i mean none of the times match up all of the 1-18-08 pics have that date on them but the attack was filmed on may 23rd so why would the camera imprint 1-18-08 on them lol and chaui station and idk everything none of it adds up! hopefully the sequel will help connect all of it well here check this out im sure ull find it really interesting http://forums.unfiction.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=466180#466180
its got TONS of information have fun lookin at all of it haha

pete_of_god said...

Thanks for that, very interesting indeed. You are right. the dates dont add up. If Chaui station disaster did happen on dec 27th maybe it wasnt the monster, but teddy hensen was on the station. why was he taken?. Did he find out something he shouldnt of? also what ever did drop from the sky had no smoke effect like something that burns through our atmosphere should have?. there is a picture on 1-18-08.com of a japanese chef i am going to get translated. may mean nothing. i guess i shall see.

Anonymous said...

its already translated in one of the posts above!!! dont bother going through the trouble of having it translated its just a recipe possibly including seabed nectar what ever that is lol and your welcome for the site o and about teddy from my understanding he was with TIDO Wave who is a clear opponent of Tagruato and is thought to be the cause of the Chaui station disaster who knows theres too much to figure out!

pete_of_god said...

haha fair enough. well i guess ur right on that one. what a headache!

golesy said...

but when the drilling disaster happened, you heard the roar twice and chunks were thrown back up out of the water. it had to be the monster.

froob. said...

ok so i've been reading these comments for a while now and been to pretty much all the websites listed throughtout the page with the exception on jamieandteddy.
but can someone please explain breifly as possible whats going on?

pete_of_god said...

well here goes, tagruato is a deep sea drilling company that lost a satellite. on dec 27th on of tagruato's oil rigs "chaui station" took an unknown attack and sunk. no survivors apprently. On board was Teddy Hansen who was Jamie Luicianos boyfriend. Teddy worked for tidowave. a company that was blamed for the chaui station incident. Tagrauto took him hostage. Jamie is friends with lilly, rob, etc....rob got a job as vice president for Tagrauo. then on april 27th the satellite dropped into the water off the coast of coney island. where apprently tagrauto did some drilling there that caused the monster to wake up and 25 days later just after midnight on may 23rd it attacked New York. if i have missed anything or got something wrong others feel free to advise.

this explains it all.

Anonymous said...

see thats wat i thought too but its deffinatley the monster that attacked chaui ughh idk anymore haha i still feel accomplished that i got you to change ur mind though! lol

Anonymous said...

look wat i found...J.J. Abrams: “The concept for the monster is simple. He’s a baby. He’s brand-new. He’s confused, disoriented and irritable. And he’s been down there in the water for thousands and thousands of years.” ...figured ud find that interesting pete lol

pete_of_god said...

well there you go, still doesnt explain when he was woken up though.

golesy said...

what does half of this story have to do with anything? someone was taken hostage? Slusho? Why the hell can't anyone understand that simpler is sometimes, no, most of the time better. I thought the whole point of this damn movie was to be about something we aren't supposed to understand? But now were talking about a drink which makes you stomach explode with happy? WHAT THE HELL!!! And if the monster is 1000's of years old, what are the parasites?!?!? and why the HELLLLL do people explode?? STOP WITH ALL THE DAMN QUESTIONS!!


Sorry about the rant everyone.

ps. and if the creature was under water for that long, why can it breath air. that would make it a mammal, thus it would have to surface quite frequently. Godzilla was explained . radioactive mutant dinosaur has uber powers-end of story. You aren't supposed to care about monster back stories, but J.J could NEVER just keep it simple.

I still can't believe they're letting him do Star Trek.

"Capitan Kirk, what is that?"
"well you see the British nuclear defense system made a new kind of hot dog which they launched into space to test the anti-enemy bio-hazardous waste bomb and the explosion woke up a monster on mars which was first made by japan and also launched into space as an anti- hot dog weapon which backfired and landed on an island in the ocean where Oceanic flight 813..."

golesy said...

Hey, i read that site with all the facts, 98% was completely useless crap.J.J tried really hard to ruin this movie, and his attempts were a success. I take my hat of to you, J.J. you turned something great into just another crappy meaningless episode of lost.

sorry about the second rant. I think I'll stop posting here before you all hate me.I just hate it that i will never be able to watch this movie the same way again. It used to frighten me a bit, and i NEVER get frightened by movies. bit now, as i said before its just another crappy load of questions.
one last thing. It said on that site that much of the information that was released 2 years ago. How much is relevant to the actual end product anymore? that enough time to change the entire thing.

Anonymous said...

u keep complaining about all the questions but you keep asking alot yourself? and if u really think the monster didnt come from the water than argue that with JJ himself, its not liek he made the movie or anything. and how did this movie scare you? haha it was kinda intense but not scary!

pete_of_god said...

Its so true, he did ask alot of questions. Why come looking for answers if you were not prepared for them. The whole set up has been in place for this film with reguards to the film Cloverfield which i feel was genuis. Its had people talking about it so much that it defeats the object of it just being a movie. JJ Abrams and Matt Reeves have done very well and I feel Star Trek will be a hit also. If you want no more questions and dislike the way your view on this movie has been altered. dont come on these sites and stick with your own theory to the movie.

Anonymous said...

ive jst watched the film and hav three main points
first why is the film called cloverfield - this may seem like a stupid question but i really hav no idea
second - people hav sed that the monster seems smaller wen it attacks hud could that hav been one of the smaller monster things that came off the main one but just growing at a fast rate.
third- wen they are attacked undeground walking down the train tracks hud says something about t fact he wasnt attacked but i cant remember plus ther must be a reason y t gurl exploded afta she was bitten aswel , lol tht was 4 points bt yer.
t moment i got out the cinema i just didnt no what to think its one of them films tht even tho yu no it isnt real yur kind of unforfilled with it and want to no whats going on, brill film tho proper lovd it !

oh and wat did the japanese man say to hud wen they wer runnind to the middle of the city, he was shouting something the hud sed"i cant undeerstand yu i dno what yur sayin" x

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. Continue to check back here for updates on the mystery and viral campaigns of Cloverfield.

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.

T.I.D.O wave An activist group set out to bring to light all the damage Tagruato has done to the envirnoment.
