IGNORE THIS SHIT IF YOU SEE IT
Previous thread: >>64912916
Before the retards get here:
The film was always intended to be a sequel to Cloverfield. They've been working on developing the idea for a while.
>“The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”
The reason the movie was filmed under so many different names is because they wanted to keep the fact that it was a Cloverfield sequel a secret. This shouldn't come as a surprise, as they did the same shit with the first one.
>The film was initially titled Cloverfield; however, this changed throughout production before it was finalized as the original title. Matt Reeves explained that the title was changed frequently due to the hype caused by the teaser trailer. "That excitement spread to such a degree that we suddenly couldn't use the name anymore. So we started using all these names like Slusho and Cheese. And people always found out what we were doing!" The director said that "Cloverfield" was the government's case designation for the events caused by the monster, comparing the titling to that of the Manhattan Project. "And it's not a project per se. It's the way that this case has been designated. That's why that is on the trailer, and it becomes clearer in the film. It's how they refer to this phenomenon [or] this case", said the director. The film's final title, Cloverfield, is the name of the exit Abrams takes to his Santa Monica office. In turn, the road used to lead to the Santa Monica Airport, which originally bore the name Clover Field.
>One final title, Greyshot, was proposed before the movie was officially titled Cloverfield. The name Greyshot is taken from the archway that the two survivors take shelter under at the end of the movie. Director Reeves said that it was decided not to change the title to Greyshot because the film was already so well known as Cloverfield.
>he thinks people just make one post and then leave a thread
hate to break it to you friendo, but when people are discussing something and not just shitposting they tend to post more than once
Wonder if the film will take place mostly in the bunker, or whether they just showed a large portion of the bunker to mislead in the trailer? It certainly looked like a lot of shit went down in the bunker, what with the fire starting and her crawling through the vents.
>Wonder if the film will take place mostly in the bunker, or whether they just showed a large portion of the bunker to mislead in the trailer?
Maybe, maybe not. We probably won't find out until march.
I would guess that the first two acts will take place in the Bunker, with the her escaping/exploring the outside world being the climax of the film.
My dad works at Bad Robot, he got to see the movie early and drew this picture of the monster.

All of the
>it's just "cloverfield" shoehorned into a movie that had nothing to do with Cloverfield
Just got BTFO.
It's been a fucking Cloverfield sequel since the jump. You fucking turds.
Remember when everyone thought Super 8 was gonna be a prequel?
This shit was cool:
What are these objects outside the window here?
1 post and go.
because that's how this works right?
get cucked faggot
>It wasn't a Lost Spinoff
>It wasn't a Lion, but it was huge
>He wasn't Jason the Power Ranger
>It wasn't Lovecraft
>It wasn't Godzirra
>It wasn't the Mutated Humpback Whale
Which one did you secretly hope for?
>Monster about that we can do little about,
>Obvious crawling around in tubes, looking for monster sequences,
>getting separated and taken out
I mean to be honest, it just looks like a run of the mill paint by the numbers locked-in-with-mosters-about movie, butit has a certain Alien feel to it, what with the whole future bunker vibe.
>movie about a few people in a bunker likely after the end of the world
>CHILDREN BEHAAAAAAAAAAVE starts playing
I was gonna point out exactly the whole generic locked-in-with-monsters thing until you brought it up at the end of your post, there. I don't find it much Alien-y.
The only thing I could even imagine would be a parasite from Clover (if the speculation about it being in the barrel is true), but even then I doubt it.
>MEW accuses John Goodman of being a monster.
>It ain't me starts playing
To be fair, me specifically calling it Alien, was just a jab at him doing Star Trek, then Star Wars, and now this.
The point I'm just trying to make is that none of what we see here promise anything we haven't seen done a hundred times before. Getting Hype at this, is like getting hype at going to the Circus. There has to be a point where it entertains you, but you're not amazed at the fact that there are acrobats.
>mods on /tv/
>competent at anything ever that isn't deleting threads with pictures of women in the OP that aren't Ghostbusters and Amy Schumer hate threads
I think the hype from all of this is the opportunity to solve an ARG, since JJ enjoys doing them with his movies and shows. Of course, I don't think we're really getting much and the movie is two months away anyway.
Here is how it's gonna play out. They will spend some time and start to freak out like every fucking bunker movie ever. But it will be very short and then it will be defend the bunker kinda movie after MEW screws up. They will keep repairing shit and going out to do shit and come back while monsters try to kill them.
something along those lines is apparently what the original "The Cellar" script was like before JJ read it and said "hey we can make a Cloverfield 2 really fuckin' cheap".
as in the outside world is only on the last page of the script, where radiation or chemicals make a pig explode or something insane like that.
>This movie doesn't have the creative ARG like the first one
I'm still going to see it since MEW is muh waifu
It isn't related to this movie. It was found that the site has been around in that exact state since 2011 so it has nothing to do with Cloverfield.
Although what's weird is that you can find almost no information about that movie at all, like even the production company seems fake.
Why is this a bad thing? Does it ruin your immersion or something?
I'm 80% sure the Blair Witch Project sequel was shot like a standard film. Or at least was a mix of regular and found footage.
>Doesn't have the creative ARG like the first one
It took a while for most of the stuff for 1-18-08 to be found, but once one of the main things got found with Slusho, all the other pieces started falling together, since you could connect it to Tagruato, which then connected to T.I.D.O, which connected to JamieAndTeddy, which then connected to MissingTeddy.
This trailer has been out for less than a day and the film has been kept a secret for over a year, who knows what's out there in terms of viral marketing.
Just before she covers her mouth it looks like she's seeing a monstrous mouth with fangs.
No it isn't. The top and bottom are a dried field, whilst the middle is shadow.
The logic of Clover being literally right outside that door makes no sense, since Clover could easily crush where she was standing by just walking around or hitting it with its tail. Added onto the fact that the main characters would definitely feel Clover walking above them, stopping them from trying to escape.
This person did a better prediction.
ARG takes as long as it takes the companies to release more info/update sites.
I imagine most stuff is already out there since the universe is already established, I imagine the marketing will be rather different since the 1-18-08 style was kinda like it was updating in real time until that date.
I also thought it was interesting that the interview with the director had a 2009 copyright on it, since Cloverfield was set in 2009.
>Clover could easily crush where she was standing by just walking around or hitting it with its tail
maybe some of the parasites that made Lizzy Caplan explode in the first one?
The shilling on last night's first post was just sad. All these fucking bots rewording one post.
"OMG U GUISE I AM SO EXCITE AND HYPE TO SEE THIS MOVIE I LUFF THE VIRAL CAMPAIGN SO MUCH U GUISE HYPE EXCITE HYPE EXCITE CLOVERFIELD EXCITE HYPE"
>I'm 18 so I can't remember how great the viral marketing campaign for Cloverfield was, ergo I'm unable to understand why people are so excited
>also my main board is /v/ so I will scream my favorite buzzword, SHILL, at everyone
>You will never be on /tv/ when everyone was talking about LOST and the cloverfield trailer came out again
>cloverfield was almost a decade ago
It really depends. If you like giant monsters and don't mind a shaky cam done decently you'll probably like it. Just don't expect to see the monster constantly. I think a lot of people's love for it comes from a severe drought of giant monster movies at the time and the fun of trying to make sense of its marketing prior to release.
>the sound of giant insects
so everyone like this movie right?
This movie will have less screentime for monsters than Godzilla in the US film
He did the exact opposite. Everyone jumped on the Super 8 trailer thinking it was linked to Cloverfield (and why wouldn't you?) and he had to keep explaining that it wasn't.
Speaking of Super 8, remember when they had that weird interactive trailer that came with Portal 2?
in the scene before Lizzy Caplan exploded, there was one in a glass or plastic case that went by on a stretcher.
pic related, although it doesn't really help for size comparison.
When I said I thought the vent scene was the earliest scene in the movie I meant the earliest with Goodman that appears in the trailer. However, the theory of MEW being chained at the beginning makes sense to me.
Tfw the barrel has a parasite inside it and when they take the parasite out it breaks open to show its eaten the camera, and they end up watching it and thats why they stay in the bunker
I mean, the poster could be a complete misdirection, but it looks a lot more rural in location.
I'd prefer it not be in New York/Manhattan, if only to see what more of the world is like after the attack.
Who cares about this?
Cloverfield was shit.
Both the movie and the monster were disappointing.
My favourite part of the movie were the end credits (not memeing, the music was really good, thanks Giacchino).
Sorry mate, but some of us can't help but love it. It's not as though I can't understand how you feel though. I'd imagine the way you feel about it is the same way I feel about Super 8.
I thought the end of the first one confirmed that the monster wasn't dead? I haven't seen it for a while, but I thought you could hear someone say something about it still being alive or still moving?
And was there ever any truth to those old rumors that Clover was just a baby? Will we get an even bigger one?
>Well the first movie ended with Manhattan wrecked and the creature dead
I thought the first movie ended with the two people hiding under a bridge as NYC was bombed into oblivion? We didn't actually see the monster die, IIRC.
I haven't seen shit. This is the first time I actually hear of the sequel. How dumb do you have to be to fall for marketing, anyways?
I haven't even seen Super 8. I lost faith in Abrams after Cloverfield.
L O S Tand Alias were good, he should have stuck with tv shows.
>The film's final title, Cloverfield, is the name of the exit Abrams takes to his Santa Monica office.
it'd be kind of funny if it were set in Santa Monica at the IRL location that the movies are named after, but it's Cloverfield Boulevard, not Lane.
poetic license for a better title maybe?
He's talking about the viral marketing for the original.
And Super 8 was, well, not what I wanted it to be. It started as the Goonies, turned into Cloverfield and then quickly transformed into E.T.
>j.j.abrams is also working on the half-life movie
So what are the chances that during production it was decided this wouldn't be a successful film with its tiny budget so they did some rewrites and reshoots to make the film connected to Cloverfield without having to it a direct sequel?
I mean, if this exact teaser had come out only to end with the title "The Cellar" literally no one would be talking about it.
From what I remembered, the monster wasnt affected by any of the ordinance the military hammered on it
>The creature's skin showed a strong resistance to projectile weaponry, due to the immensely high resistance deep-sea creatures have shown against heat and pressure due to their environmental conditions. Shells from M1A2 tanks and M109A6 Paladins, AT-4 rockets and FGM-148 Javelin missile launchers, AGM-65 Mavericks and Mk-82 bombs and other high powered ordnance failed to do anything other than aggravate and frighten the creature.
Thats all I can find
>adds nothing new to the game and is forgettable
>falling for marketing
>not doing something because it's a fun distraction
>STOP LIKING WHAT I DON'T LIKE WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
It's a giant monster movie faggot, it's not that serious. Stop being autistic.
>Cloverfield is universally disliked.
Oh right, I forgot all of us in these past six threads today were just shills.
It's okay, I guess? Being about a bunch of kids kind of annoyed me and there's a really strange shift in the tone of the movie near the end.
But I remember a scene from the movie when they're being evacuated via helicopter, and they film a bomb getting dropped on it and the creature gets visibly damaged and distressed
>breaks bottle directly across face
>not a single scratch
>Hidden was on the 2011 Black List
>The Cellar was on the 2012 "Hit List", a Black List knockoff
>Hidden was filmed in 2012, released in 2015
>The Cellar/10 Cloverfield Lane was filmed in 2014, released in 2016
it's like pottery, it rhymes.
Yeah but as soon as it fell, it immediately got back up and bit the heli those people were on, may have been distressed, but recovered
A nuke could wreck it, everyone speculates what was the missile that supposedly killed or not killed the monster, so it may have been a MOAB or a nuke, I dont remember
I just want more of this.
They carpet bomb it and it does collapse into a building, only to instantly jump out of the cloud and destroy the helicopter.
I think it was the equivalent of a shove, if the building hadn't been in the way for it to be knocked into I doubt it'd have looked as bad.
Is it realistic to portray tanks being mobilized to a urban situation like this that quickly? If I recall correctly, the events of this movie are more or less in real time and this clip would be like 30 minutes or so after the monster first started tearing shit up
>Although what's weird is that you can find almost no information about that movie at all, like even the production company seems fake.
just like that spongebob movie everyone was sperguing about last year?
Im pretty sure they would've, but nuking a highly important city in the US would be collateral as fuck: High population, Economic center, etc etc. So they wouldve done more suitable options before a nuke
I think they just hammered the monster the fuck down with non nuclear heavy ordinance to prevent collateral. It didnt work since the end of the credits it said it was still alive, and since movie ends there, not sure what happens next

But most of /tv/ hated this movie when it came out. Fuck, this is one of those threads where I realize that I'm some 30 year old faggot and everyone else my age left as they grew older and you are the bunch of young fucks we used to insult for liking trash like this.
The only reason I can think of is that they had at least some prior warning, like detected a huge object off the coast via SONAR or something, and started mobilising before it arrived, just too late to stop it getting into the city
>The Parasites have concentrated levels of Katei no Mitsu in their blood, a key ingredient in Tagruato's Slusho! beverage. One theory is that water poured onto a Parasite causes a reaction in the Parasite's saliva that accelerates the degenerative process in the HSP's victims; The life span of a victim varies between 20 or 40 minutes. Moments before death, victims of Parasite bites exhibit symptoms of dizziness, bleeding from the eyes and nose alongside vomiting blood.
>Their bodies expand and the central cavity explodes outward. Marlena Diamond and a soldier being carried out on a stretcher died in this manner. Isolation of victims in their final moments are a precaution against initial fears of viral contamination. The rapid containment of their bodies before inevitable combustion is also necessary for hygienic purposes.
>>missed all the Lost threads

All of them were garbage mate especially LOST and BrBa towards the end
Not only did you not miss out on anything, you need to fuck off back to /v/
recently turned 30 myself, feeling kinda like you right now. I really liked Cloverfield, but people EVERYWHERE bitched about it non-stop for like a year. I've just always assumed I was in a minority of people who actually liked it.
What gives you away is the way you only reply with reaction images, quotes and smart-ass posts. You try to fit in too hard. You go for quantity over quality, trying to get the weak-minded to hop aboard the bandwagon and overpower the negative opinions with sheer mass.
Well guess what. I can see through your shit.
The funniest thing is that you probably don't even get paid for this.
they probabl- >>64921665
there had also been a corpse that looked like it had a chestburster come out of it on a stretcher being wheeled by with someone saying "out of the way, another bite" or something like that, about a minute before Caplan popped.
Actually in the ARG, I swear I remembered that the creature attacked a tanker that was heading towards New York, so the military may have known beforehand that something big was coming
I have film patrician tastes and I loved the fuck out of Cloverfield. It was a great movie mates
unless you can source that, you're a lying faggot

I only have one all time fav and it is pic related
I watched Cloverfield years ago, although not when it came out. I remember really digging the creature design and horror elements.
One problem, though. How bad is the shaky cam? I remember I got through the film fine on my viewing, but shaky cam has become one of my pet peeves and I don't think I could sit through it again if it's too bad. That, and shaky cam is the one thing that makes my girlfriend refuse to watch a film.
Should I try to rewatch it with her to get hype for this?
>man sets up a safe and cozy bunker
>lets others stay with him
>woman becomes rebelllious because muh emotions and patriarchy
>does stupid shit and gets everyone killed
Seems fairly accurate to me.
Do you like Found Footage? If not no, it still has all the issues every found footage movie does. If you do, the first act is pretty boring (as they usually are in found footage movies) but it's got a relatively huge budget so they do shit you normally don't see. Ultimately, it's a really solid flick for it's genre but doesn't transcend it.
I dunno. I mean, it's shaky cam done decently, but it's still shaky cam. On the bright side it does have its moments of cool. Just looking back at the clips posted in this thread, I love the night-vision reveal of the parasites and the way the cam tilts up to reveal the monsters head when they're shooting it and later the bomber flying past the chopper to bomb the creature. But yeah, even good shaky cam is still gonna be shaky cam.
no. Unless Goodman was a scientist studying the things prior to whatever caused him and the other two to be stuck in the bunker, there is absolutely no justifiable reason for him to have one of the parasites. It's gotta be something else in the barrel.
Maybe it's the remains of his wife or something.
You guys realize that thecellarmovie.com is a completely seperate movie right? There is a shitty trailer made by some randy fucking director. This has literally nothing to do with cloverfield.
I can't even remember that, I just remember the ending beneath a bridge or some shit as they get nuked and the body horror shit when she gets bitten and eventually explodes.
If it's shaky cam done 'correctly' I might be able to talk her into it. I think the only film she's seen with lots of shaky cam was the Blair Witch project, which I haven't seen. No idea how bad it is in that film, but the mention of the words shaky cam makes her refuse to see a film.
Ok fellas, I just got back from when we were discussing last night. I think I missed the last 4 threads or so. I saw the poster was released.
So have we found anything good yet? Any ARG sites?
>trying to sound like an honest to god film critic
Yo, shut the fuck up. The movie is GREAT to watch with friends. It's Blair Witch with Aliens and Godzilla thrown in. The characters are fine, nothing to write home about and you will forgeg about most of them by the next morning but what you WON'T forget is the awesome set pieces like people hopping back and forth between two skyscrapers that crashed into each other and some bridge in NYC being destroyed
Go watch it, it's a fun time. ESPECIALLY with a group of friends. It's the perfect type of movie for that. Don't listen to this psuedo-aristic faggot. If you want to watch something "le patrician" afterwards netflix just got "The Conversation" Coppola starring Gene Hackman. Watch that after all your friends go home

Go back to cripplechan please, no one cares that your prom date ditched you.
Probably think it's dead. I mean, how long was Clover in the ocean before shitslapping NY? They can probably do the whole suspended animation thing. It is a monster movie after all.
Blair Witch is one of the most effective horror movies ever made, alongside the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Exorcist.
Although I can easily see how it would come off as lackluster to millennials without an imagination
Yeah, nature can do some pretty crazy shit with chemicals and gasses. I'm actually kind of surprised there isn't already an animal that can explode its prey.
If I remember correctly I think It made your body produce too much blood too fast.. so you just sort of explode. Some deep sea louse use some sort of toxic to make the host produce more blood faster.
Dunno If this was a fan theory or if it was official. I could be completely making this up as well.
That doesn't explain HOW it makes them explode though. The toxin makes them go boom, but that doesn't explain the process.
That sounds really odd, and I can't really see how it would have explosive results.
Is this that movie where MEW is trapped in a basement by Goodman and he says the surface is destroyed and he won't let her leave? I read about it on those movies of 2016 threads but it became this?
>wound is prepped to burst in 20-40 minutes
>water speeds the process up
I'm thinking when the parasites were underwater they'd bite clover and have the area they bite burst so that they could crawl in.
what happened to new york? is it ok or . . .?
That makes a lot of sense actually. Even if they don't crawl in, it could also just be a way to get through the thick hide. Just getting a single tooth into the flesh could slowly but surely open a wound big enough to feed off of.
>this is still better and more imposing than 98% of monster movie designs
Shit makes my uncomfortable full-sized on a big monitor
