as you guise already know by now there is "sequel" to cloverfield that has been secretly in the making and its gonna be released in two months, apparently this Movie has a connection to the first film but in reality does not look like it has anything to do with the first film, but you guys can decide that one for yourself
the trailer literally showed the whole movie
I am 83% certain the entire movie is going to be the three characters squabbling in the shelter until boobs magoo goes to leave and sees the ruined earth with cloverdudes everywhere
Yeah I can see it being a generic "claustrophobic horror movie" the ending of which is her seeing the devastated earth and all the new aliums and then cutting to black leading to the inevitable sequel. Or maybe they'll surprise us and actually put out something decent. I really like Cloverfield so I'm cautiously excited about this. Also John Goodman.
i feel like the trailer was aimed at making doomsday preppers look like violent hostile pricks. Not sure though, it still has my curiosity and i've been craving some sort of sequel ever since all the buzz about the reversed "its still alive" message at the end of the first film and just how chocked full of easter eggs and lore the first film was.
cloverfield monster rose from the sea after some oil rigging disaster and some controversial shit that had to do with a japanese slushie company mining for ingredients at the bottom of the ocean
The first Cloverfield was shit.
The fact that I hate found footage movies sure have influenced my first judgement, but it's a genre, so I watched it again in a distant way, pondering if as FFM it succeed into suspend the disbelief in such kind of story, and it just doesn't.
We have a giant monster that emerges from the abyss and attack NY, ok, now we have to made this premise look realistic, and what does J.J. Abrams to achieve it? It shows the story from the POV of a group of people followed by one of them, that is quite the comedy relief, who films the entire escape with an handycam, talking about Clark Kent and other geek shit. And guess what happens when the hprotagonist decides to split from the group to go to save his damsel? He takes the handycam from the jerk friend and films his personal rescue mission, for no reason. It's just laughable.
He have to rescue his girlfriend, who is wounded and shocked only-God-know-where and he don't take whit him any medikit or even a bottle of water, no, just the handycam, a bandage? NO, the handycam.
In the ending, do you think that abyssal creatures have finns or gills? Or somekind of hydrodynamic shape? No, they look like hairless bats with (airless too) chimp arms.
I think this new Cloverfield would be a more sane rewriting of the first idea, this giant monster emerges, and a group of people (a family? A group of survivors?) barricade themselves in a anti-atomic shelter, inside there the go nuts because of the paranoia, so the danger is both inside and outside, it is more safe to stay in a close space with a psycho or to walk outside among the panicked people during a large scale destruction event?
I don't remember much of anything about the ARG. This WAS eight years ago, after all, and it was all related to the original Cloverfield video. After viewing the Wiki page for this movie, it sounds strange and not even related to Cloverfield at all, despite "being in the same universe". Has my curiosity raised.
Same and they use poor reasoning to bash it. Uncanny.
The movie apparently had a really fucked up production, as it was only recently reshot and rewritten to fit into the Cloverfield universe after JJ insisted. It was originally a very small picture, with a small budget and shit. Now it's going to be on Imax???? Cloverfield??? Even if the movie sucks, this is interesting in its own right.
That, and they shoot the shit out of the fucker, and can't even put a dent into it. That was what really bothered me. If it's skin was that tough, it wouldn't even be able to move or walk around. Even if it was that resilient it would break down after being shot at endlessly by a shit ton of troops.
Stupid movie. Fuck the sequel.
What if you are a Hindu? Or a Buddhist or a taoist? Lol Chirstfags are so full of themselves. It's so obvious Christianity was designed to keep the masses under check, no other religions are as oppressive as the abrahmic ones
Unlike a lot of people I loved the first movie, found footage is some of the only horror that lets me feel truly immersed in the world since it forces you to see from the perspective of a character.
Im cautiously optimistic that the sequel will at least be fun/decent but who knows.
Man, you guys are retarded. That shit was the only original horror movie to come out in the passed ten fucking years, every other horror movie was a bunch of white people fucking with an ouija board or getting possessed by a retarded ghost. You guys suck and wouldn't know a decent monster movie if it was fucking you right in the ass.
>mfw Cloverfield was actually decent and you guys are just being finicky
Sure, some of the details seem a little whack after you've watched and analyzed the movie multiple times. So what if buddy didn't grab what would have been sensible instead of his camera? If you were in his situation, the adrenaline might've caused you to make some rash choices, too.
The director playes on our fear of what's in the dark quite adeptly. We kept getting glimpses of the creature throughout the story, like ghastly little reveals puncturing the air of paranoia and hysteria pervading the setting and oppressing the characters. It's suspense well done; similar to Jaws iirc. You can pick holes at unknown variables (i.e. the monster physiology) present in the writing all you want, but at the end of the day it's an entertaining flic that nails the tropes of its genre down to a tee with an original concept (like >>17226383 said) and good productions values.
Quit yer bitchin.
That was just a satellite. If you had been following along with the ARG you'd know that it was only thrown in at the end to tie-in to all the viral stuff. The monster was awoken by the deep sea drilling.
You're delusional if you think that's true.
There were way too many varied scenes for that to not be the whole movie.
I very highly doubt they're going to go through the process of the girl waking up in the bunker, getting to trust the other guys there, having a falling out, being chained up, so on and so forth just as a setup.
It's pretty clear the entire movie is going to be in the bunker, and leaving is going to be the end.
Some really nasty shit. And apparently water speeds up the process so the fucked Marlena pretty hard there.
Wow, holy shit. I just watched the trailer. I'm legitimately interested in this. And I don't know what >>17221352 is smoking. The trailer didn't really show anything, except it's a horror movie, and it [might] be a sequel to Cloverfield.
Just like it was "clear" we weren't actually going to see the monster in the original film
"After a car accident, a young woman comes to in an underground cellar, where most of the action takes place. She fears she has been abducted by a survivalist, who tells her he saved her life and that a chemical attack has left the outside world uninhabitable."
Where most of the action takes place...
It's going to suck. J.J. Abrams is the very last director to be doing a horror movie where all the horror takes place off screen.
In general the, "who can you trust, everyone stuck in a single room, is there even anything going on besides someone being insane?" style tension is almost always badly done and has long since been tragically over-done. Why anyone would be interested in John Goodman being aggressive and irrational as the focus of a spiritual successor to a movie about a giant city wrecking monster from god knows where is entirely beyond me.
Yeah this was my main gripe about the movie, the idiot characters. Back when it came out I summed up the movie with this scene:
>Hey look people are being saved and evacuated right over, you can go now guy that we just met tonight.
>No thats okay ill go with guys to save your gf
>Uhh are you sure? We literally just met at the party and dont even really know each other
>Yeah thats okay ill go with you guys.
Wasn't it a baby creature?
I remember that the japanese corporation send it to new york to end their rivals.
It was scared for all the shit that was going on,so that is way it tried to return to the sea.
The japanese corporation was dedicated to make soda algae,in the process they found it.
I could see it going either way. A short "tease" of a creature causing the devastation all the way at the end. Or having it have nothing to do with the original cloverfield other than name and a horror flick.
>that one manga where clover is treated as a god
Yeah reading some of their convo it is the same shit over and over again. Not only that but they think you can't make a short film for five million and then elaborate on it and change the stuff you used to hide the real tone of the movie.
It's interesting you put it that way, because the three of them role-playing in a bunker after some catastrophic event reminds me of an arc from the adult comic The Crossed. I assume that was the short part of the movie?
I'm not really sure why some of you are still debating whether or not the movie is going to take place entirely in the bunker or not.
It is. Like undeniably, that's the whole movie. In fact, it was recently revealed that the Cloverfield parts were only an afterthought and this was originally going to be a different movie entirely literally called The Bunker.
I mean, it doesn't mean it's going to be bad or anything, but it definitely for sure is going to take place in the bunker for all but maybe the end.
JJ did not direct this film
His production company took over the film after Paramount bought it
It was filmed 2 years ago for 5 million bucks, then shelved
Look at John Goodman, still fat in the trailer, now he is skinny
The original title was "Valencia"
Girl wakes up in a shelter after an accident, thinks the end of the world is bullshit, gets out, after the killing 2 guys, finds Chicago burning from a nuclear war
Bad Robot, does a bunch of re-shoots, tack on a "new" ending and calls it " Cloverfield Lane"
Fans see the Cloverfield name, JJ Abrams and head to the theatre
Paramount makes a ton of cash from a no budget indie film, laughs to the bank
The audience gets a movie about three people in a room with a "uh-oh" ending
They should call this "Cloverfield Lame"
No. The monster is thousands of years old and was feeding off Seabed Nectar, which made it gigantic. It went into a hibernation and submarines going down to investigate it woke it up.
>The original title was "Valencia"
Holy shit, this is Valencia? I was interested in that to begin with. Yeah, if that's true, you'll probably right, it won't really be a Cloverfield movie. Still going to watch it, I'll just ignore a tacked on ending, if there is one.
Rewatch the trailer to the first Cloverfield. It looks like they did a similar thing, "giving away" the introductory sequence while avoiding showing the monster. I don't think they gave away the whole movie, just the first few minutes.
That's the the set up. You have no idea what is going to happen. All I read was the the actress said that it's going to start out much like a comedy, but will continue to get weirder and darker as it progresses.
Seemed that way from the trailer too. Starts off with, as one person said earlier ITT, "role-playing" in the bunker, much like how season two of LOST began if you ever watched that. Then I'm sure plot will develop and shit will eventually happen.
Except it's not a lie, Valencia was the code name for The Bunker, and The Cellar is a completely unrelated movie that people just keep confusing with The Bunker.
Watch the original leaked trailer.
Several different acts are shown, it's not just them playing the game and then the girl escapes, the girl wakes up, they get to know eachother, time passes and they're fine, they play games, etc. but at some point the other guy is killed, she's injured, locked up, escapes, and then tries to leave. It may not be the whole movie literally, but you people who think the bunker is just going to be the start are just lying to yourselves.
>you people who think the bunker is just going to be the start are just lying to yourselves.
So you think that a teaser trailer for a jj abrams cloverfield movie is going to reveal the entire plot
I thinknit'll be a 2-director half-and-halfie like From Dusk til Dawn
Yeah Hud was one of Rob's best friends and got propositioned by... a female whose name I don't recall off the top of my head to record testimonials since the original person wasn't there or some such. Been a while. That's why he had the camera.
Marlena was a friend-of-a-friend that Hud was originally trying to hit on and yes, she stuck with them because nobody else.
>all these people making completely wild ass guesses and literally making facts up to shit on this unreleased movie
There are some legitimate points being brought up too but for the most part you faggots just have to shit on this for whatever contrarian reason you've convinced yourself to follow. They told me /tv/ was a huge factor in /x/s decline but I didn't listen. I didn't listen.
Contrarians are on every single board. They came with the newfag tidal wave of mainstream-ity that inflicted 4chan several years ago. If anything, /x/ has a special case of poor attribution due to the /b/ raid eons ago but otherwise, a specific board isn't rendered shit due to another specific board (for example: newfags blaming /pol/ for any even-remotely-political discussion that crops up anywhere.)
In an interview with boobs, she said something along the lines of how interesting it was with her, John Goodman, and the Broken Armed Avenger being pretty much the only actors showing up to film every day. Not sure how I think of that, and if I can find the link I'll post it in a reply.
Op this is a movie that was ment to be a low budget indie suspense film. After some financial issues with the producers when the project wrapped up. Paramount made some changes to the film with Ja jaybraums help figuring that a low budget film like that wouldnt sell. Thats why Jah Jaybraums doesnt really consider it a true sequel of sorts. So Im feeling pretty sure that the last half of this movie is gonna either suck hard or some how pull a fast one
A little bit of lurking shows that it seems to be a legitimate company. I will grant you some fishy occurrences like the FAQ text, and the "long-term shelter supply" but those could be happy coincidences.
I agree there but, say for example, if you lurk their instagram, they have well over 100 posts starting from early 2014, and it comes off as a very legitimate business. Maybe they're collaborating with the movie for viral marketing or some such.
Yeah I lurked around on their facebook page a little more. Within the first ~3 most recent posts with comments, there are allusions to the movie, even outright namedropping by randoms who seem to have caught on to... something. Otherwise, it looks like normal business page otherwise with normal customers posting normal comments and questions.
There is some short film about this same scenario that I saw few years ago. Tried to find in but no luck. It was in twlight zone or something similar show. In the end woman runs out of the shelter and sees the world in ruins.
originally it was rumored this film had nothing to do with Cloverfield but once Bad Robot bought the rights and JJ came on board, they did some rewrites and attached Cloverfield to it to some degree
I think this film will have a theme that conspiracy theorists and doomsday preppers are bad and that white males are bad, hence the tagline: Monsters Come in Many Forms
In the original script, the white guys who hold the woman hostage trick her so they can make her a sex slave.
In the original script, John Goodman's character and the girl are the only characters in the cellar. He explains to her that the world is gone and she doesn't believe him so she runs to the door to escape. She stops in shock because she sees a man running to the door in a hazmat suit pleading to come in and she lets him in (this guy is the other male character). After more talking, the girl falls in love with the guy. Turns out the guy and Goodman are in cahoots so that they can make the girl a sex slave with the good cop / bad cop routine and that the world isn't gone.
Looking at the trailer, I assume they kept this storyline and changed the ending possibly so that after the girl realizes white men are bad and lied to her about the world ending, she burns the place down and escapes. However by this point the world has really ended because of the events of Cloverfield taking place simultaneously as the events of this movie are taking place.
If it turns out exactly like this I'm not so sure I'll care about it anymore.
Although at least the whole "the internet will say white men are bad" (again) thing is easy to debunk. Just bring up the whole "don't judge the actions of a few nuts on the many" and/or "here are times where people of other races did the exact same thing to someone (in this case sex slavery)". It's actually funny when someone starts up on a diatribe, how easy it is to shut down. This one girl I used to know in college tries to post occasional crazy things about removing guns, but goes apeshit over hearing people say refugees should be kept out due to a few terrorists hiding within their people and sneaking into a country to harm innocents. When you bring up the parallels to her hypocrisy, she loses her mind for like a day straight. Endless entertainment.
>reminder that the Cloverfield monster is an outer space alien as implied by the 'corrupted' footage that plays during the end credits. This is, arguably, why the government 'kept' the footage and archived it... first sighting of the monster.
>look closely during the Coney Island scenes
>I didn't play the arg
He's an ancient mutated sea creature that was woken up by a corrupt slushy company drilling in the ocean. There's also more than one monster present in the film. The one you're given a full view of was either a child or the opposite sex of the one destroying new York.
>There's also more than one monster present in the film
Clover was the only 'main' monster in the movie and yes, IIRC it was implied that it was a child. If you want to be pedantic, you could count the mini-Clovers as multiple monsters.
How about you explain the enormous size difference between the helicopter scene, and when the group confronts the monster towards the end? How does something the size of the Empire state building suddenly shrink to about 2-3 series high?
well in the official comic that tied in with the film its indicated that there are more than one in the first, that and the size differences of the monsters seen (excluding the parasites) points to there either being a mother and child, or male and female
I don't doubt that there could be a mother but the mother would likely still be in the ocean somewhere. Clover itself was the only major monster present within the movie.
true, but what if the mother is New York because shes looking for Clover, if you think of, like, a mother bear and her cub, or tiger mom her offspring, any kind of predatory animal
Is there any sort of chart that details the penetrating power of everything ranging from small 9mm up to a bunker buster?
Surely /k/ must have cobbled something like that together in one of their info threads.
If a bunker buster couldn't penetrate it then you have to start thinking about far out their weapons like railguns or lazers.
There was something about a soft drinks company called swamp pop that was giving out cryptic messages on twitter after /tv/ saw it was in the trailer and started looking into the company and found a "bunker supply crate" that cost the same as the number Goodman put into the jukebox in the trailer.
There was a permanent thread on /tv/ about it for the first 2 days after the trailer was released and then nothing.
I think 99% of the film will take place in the bunker. We will probably see one of the parasites which everyone thinks is in the barrel Goodman is putting hazmat gloves on to show Mew to prove that the world really is fucked. That parasite will be what connects it to Cloverfield as the "blood relative".
Depending on how much they reworked the film once Jew Jew got involved, we might get a quick moneyshot of the monster as Mew leaves the bunker at the end, but the parasite will be what connects them.
I honestly don't understand where you're getting a second monster from.
I can understand that but this is honestly the first time in eight years that I've heard of a two-monster hypothesis.
That was discussed earlier ITT.
Yanks keep saying that it is a real drink available from a lot of shops there. Interestingly the company, website and copyrights were all registered the year that the film was originally filmed, 2014.
They must be a legitimate company that is doing some marketing with Bad Robot. Although that is odd due to the fact that Cloverfield had 100% original content for its ARG.
>since it was contained to NYC
Says who? It was still alive after the first film and could easily have travelled. Never mind the fact that it was a baby and its parents could have come looking for it.
Louisiana, where the film is speculated to take place, is on the Gulf coast.
This has been proven wrong countless times for years now, how do you keep thinking that there were more than one?
The size difference was a perspective thing. The monster tracker on the blueray shows one monster and I'm sure JJ has confirmed that there is only one monster.
I'm surprised that you people don't use the animators fucking up with the tooth placement as "proof".
The movie took place in NYC. We were only aware of the one monster... in NYC. Sure there could be another (like there could be a monster in Louisiana) but that would be playing 'what-ifs' and grossly assuming. There is nothing to indicate the existence of another rampaging monster.
Ha! Some people I know didn't like the rather clumsy 20-something characters, but for me they kind of worked. Most horror movies I find the characters either too smart or too stupid (I definitely prefer too smart,) or often an unsightly and unrealistic mix of the two. I liked Cloverfield's characters because they seemed precisely the right amount of stupid. Very human.
I can also see issues with the choice of format, but we get to see plenty of the monsters in question. It definitely wasn't a case of all tell and no show, which I tend to loathe about a lot of what I consider failed attempts at horror today (this "blood relative" we're discussing right now looks like exactly that kind of pointless waste of two hours to me, I don't need to watch a horror movie to not see anything interesting.)
All things considered I thought the pacing was good. Some of the results were contrived, like actually finding the girlfriend alive was beyond the pall in the way they presented it, but still, mid grade attempt horror, it cleared many hurdles for me most other horror films fail to utterly.
Well that makes the plot kinda predictable now, I we take a look at the Cloverfield wiki:
>"Seabed's Nectar (Kaitei no mitsu) is the secret ingredient for Slusho! It is highly addictive and seems to affect the human mind if eaten in its raw form. "Discovered on the deep ocean floor, under amazing pressure and extreme cold." The Parasites found on Clover's body have extremely high levels of Seabed's Nectar in their blood, and have been photographed digging into the ocean floor near the site of Chuai Station. "
>Parasites found on Clover's body have extremely high levels of Seabed's Nectar in their blood
>"Blood relative" movie
>affect the human mind if eaten in its raw form
So, Swamp Pop probably uses unprocesed Seabed Nectar and people turn into zombies or Clover parasites or some other shit, thus post apocaliptic world filled with monsters, Fred Flinstone may even go Clover since he has Swamp Soda on his side when he starts to freak out, pic related, then the chick will go out and see people tearing eachother apart and then we see clover foot or something and it ends.
The ending scene before it chomps fatty. Fighter jets are racing past it, heading towards the city in the background. If this was the one true monster, why didn't they shoot at it or bomb it? Because the bigger threat was still in the city.
>I think this new Cloverfield would be a more sane rewriting of the first idea, this giant monster emerges, and a group of people (a family? A group of survivors?) barricade themselves in a anti-atomic shelter, inside there the go nuts because of the paranoia, so the danger is both inside and outside, it is more safe to stay in a close space with a psycho or to walk outside among the panicked people during a large scale destruction event?
That story is so overdone and so boring to watch. I cannot, for the life of me, comprehend why you'd think this was a good direction to go in.
You seem to have a weird hang up with realism. For instance, we don't have any reason to believe the thing was aquatic. Its origins remain unexplained through the movie. Likewise, it clearly doesn't rely on conventional Earth style biology, so your expectations that it should have organs reflect that, while appealing to realism, aren't realistic.
It kinda sounds to me like you don't actually want to be watching horror movies at all, and that the more "horror movie" you can remove from them, the happier you are.
I want this to be a direct sequel, but it would be hard to put the monster into 10 Cloverfield Lane without ruining it's 'realism.' The ARG and original stand as fantastic self-insert entertainment, This has to be shot like a case study that we're observing or else it will ruin the tradition.
I compare it to Starship Troopers. These people have to be loathesome, over the top, 90210 caricatures so they can "grow" later. Admittedly that's a weak ass form of character growth, but lets be honest, horror movies by and large just ain't The Godfather or Ben Hur, etc.
One of the reasons I like John Carpenter's The Thing so much is that the people in it were so comparatively intelligent. I really feel like that's about how it would go down in a situation like that, sane, intelligent adults, but tempered with confusion, paranoia, entire belief system challenged. But Cloverfield (and Starship Troopers) to me managed to, if being a bit over the top, capture what I kinda feel the average joe, and worse, the average young 20 something joe, would act like.
For those of us over the age of 29, just remember how stupid we acted at age 21. For everyone here under 21, you will just stare in amazement at how dumb you are now, when you're a decade older.
How much would one set like a bunker cost?
>i saved you from the bad shit outside
>i don't believe you
>everything looks normal outside
>help i'm chained to my bed
>down with the patriarchy
>world actually shit
The twist is you think there is nothing outside, but there actually is.
buffalo trace does private label alcholol batches, like if you want to suddenly make 4chan Whiskey, they're your people
so i suppose they are involved in the soda since thats their market expertise, just doing it without the alcohol part
have you people not read the prequel comic? it end with the main monster creating eggs of more of these things. There could be tons of these things so a second one coming up at the end is very possible
>This has been proven wrong countless times for years now
I would love to see this "proof"
Have you not read the manga? It's not canon. The monster wiped out a Japanese city yet the people in Cloverfield don't have a clue what it is or what is going on?
Then there is the kid controlling the monster through magic.
Wasn't she the gf of that guy who was in RIO who went to the drilling rig and sent "evidence" to her that was a sample of the sea nectar shit that she then later ate and started being all weird and hyper and shit?
hmm, It has Goodmans face as well as the outline of the known C2 story.
Homeless people being set on fire was also what Hud spoke about in C1.
I wonder if this finally is the Cloverfield 2 ARG.
Well go on, let's see where it says they used nukes, I know that you are a retarded inbred but I can wait.
Oh you can't because they even said that it wasn't a nuke on the commentary track or even implied it was a nuke in the film? I thought as much, you silly little moron.
A question, is talking about 10 Cloverfield lane banned on /tv/?
I ask because we had a round the clock thread looking for the arg when the trailer broke, lot's of people calling everyone shills and then all of a sudden no new threads and there hasn't been one for days.
It's already been said a billion times that it WAS a different movie. Then JJ decided "I'm going to make this related to Cloverfield because me and Matt can't be assed to actually make a sequel"
I liked it and I don't like much, but I can also entirely understand people who say they didn't like it. It had a lot sloppy about it.
If you actually enjoyed, say, the first 20 minutes of Starship Troopers, The Blair Witch project or the latest Godzilla movie attempt, you'll probably like it. If you didn't like any of those, I'd say avoid it.
As someone who saw it in theaters, you're lucky you weren't suckered into actually paying for a ticket. It's a good movie to sit back and watch with a snack one night, but holy shit was it not worth the price of admission.
HEY GAIS, THIS IS NOT THE DIRECTOR OR THE PRODUCER OF THE FILM. PLEASE, DISCUSS AND RAISE AWARENESS FOR MYnhdL;KAHGKGA;G I MEAN THE FILM. THIS ISN'T SELF PROMOTION. NOBODY IS BEING PAID TO PUT THIS AD ON 4DUMB.
IIRC, she had gotten scratched by one of the mini-Clovers and that was it.
Huh. So Cloverfield is even a movie in the Marvel universe too.
Interest could have died out. Try making one (or if it dies, a few until one catches on).
It was a pretty fucking cool original monster movie.
The fact that the monster and parasites didn't "pop" from the pressure difference pisses me off.
We can survive in a vacuum because 1G isn't all that much pressure. Coming from deep under the sea like that would be a pretty shitty experience for anything involved. Whales can kinda do it, but they evolved to do that, and they don't go THAT deep anyway.
Different creatures are built different ways. Sperm whales can casually indulge in pressure differences that would flat out kill people. You guys are getting too upset over stuff that's more about your ignorance than real life.
I mean, how deep do you think it was? How deep do you think whales can go? Research it! And I mean, I may sound condescending but I know just where you're coming from. I remember when I saw the Italian Job remake and they had that freaking helicopter flying under that bridge and I, all with my misconceptions, was shouting, "HELICOPTERS CAN'T DO THAT THE AIR FLOW WOULD FUCK ALL THAT SHIT UP WHAT SHITTY, STUPID CGI!" Then I learned and saw the footage where it was done, in real life, by a stunt pilot, for that movie, and he wasn't even put out.
Posting this early concept because it's fuck awesome
So wait, that video lead to this blog:
Then, in that blog you can find a lot of other blogs, and stuff in the comments. Like this one:
Wich has this fucking pic in one of the posts.
If this is really some fan thing, they did it really well.
In one of the comments on Sakura's blog i found this:
.. / .-- .. .-.. .-.. / -- . . - / -.-- --- ..- / .- - / - .... . / .-. . -.. / -... .- -- -... --- --- / --- -. / .---- ....- ----- / .-- . ... - / ....- - .... / ... - .-. . . - .-.-.-
it translate into:
I WILL MEET YOU AT THE RED BAMBOO ON 140 WEST 4TH STREET.
Some restaurant in NY, pic related
What the hell, /x/?
A post dating back to 2013 contained pic related and a series of numbers:
>0311 and 2016
Obviously movie dates.
Half the images appear directly in the trailer, others don't even look like they're part of the same film.
Just noticed the puzzle being assembled in the trailer is a swarm of goldfish on the outside of a fishtank. Since Clover is a sea creature it stands to reason the movie will be about many of them (or many smaller parasites) coming out of their tank (the ocean) and forcing us down into ours (bunkers).
This ARG confuses me, we know already these blogs were created to generate some interest in a possible sequel, most notably the blogs of Hal and Sakura which both take back to fucking 2008 but have hints related to this new movie, even Hal's blog made a update recently which confirm how much they are related.
Seriously this has been made for so long in secret and by another name? Most people have been saying this was supposed to be another unrelated movie, then there's the whole Swamp pop thing that they refer as some sort of zombie soda and ironically those blogs have mentions of zombies too.
Maybe equally important as the image of the puzzle, is that it's made by a company called White Mountain Puzzles, which is based in New Hampshire. Not terribly far from where the original movie took place.
I've seen plenty of people mention the puzzle, but no one has mentioned that the creator of the puzzle is very prominently displayed in a trailer scene.
