IGN: Cloverfield "Russian Guy" Translation





IGN has an interesting article about the russian guy who approached Hud and co. in the movie.

We don't know what he says because he is speaking russian but IGN has translated his only quote in the movie:

The water-god from the north has returned, they cannot kill it with fire. Go back…


It's probably speculation but still interesting.

JJ Abrams on AOTS, IGN: Matt Reeves Interview

Target Cloverfield DVD comes with Exclusive Cover



It has the cool "recovered from the government" bit to it, but still has the iconic Statue of Liberty on it. Upon closer inspection, it looks like a slip-case.

Here's the description on the site:

You can still get the Standard edition online on the Target site ONLY.

Michael Stahl-David on Cloverfield 2?





Source:ShockTillYouDrop.com

Warning: The first paragraph contains a spoiler regarding the end of the film.

ShockTillYouDrop caught up with Michael Stahl David about his role in the Cloverfield sequel and Cloverfield's ending.

Michael Stahl-David talking about the potential of the sequel happening:

"I think they're still trying to figure out how they're going to pull it off," the actor laughs. "They have some ideas they're excited about but they're really not sharing them with many people...and they're not sharing them with me."


And his role in the sequel:

"unless it was being glimpsed for a second by somebody else's camera. And I think people have seen enough of me running around anyway."


And the end of the film:

"I think it's: 'Are you still there?'," then, "'I'm still here," says Stahl-David. "That's what it is."

Cloverfield Interactive Map on UGO.com

Thanks to Cloverfield Clues



Ugo.com has a great interactive Cloverfield map, with detailed information and photos about the various locations in the movie, and interesting trivia about those real-life locations.


Cloverfield's New York
Knocking the heads off statues, blowing up buildings, drooling on the lawn in Central Park ... the monster in Cloverfield is the ultimate tourist from hell. Next thing you know he'll be going up the wrong side of the subway stairs and slowly window shopping on Madison Avenue during pedestrian rush hour. Cloverfield is so jam-packed with real NYC locations, we thought it would be fun to take a tour of the local hot spots visited by the monster and learn a little about their history, architecture, and the way in which the monster smashed them all to hell.

IGN Video: Cloverfield (Special Edition) DVD Behind the Scenes - Creating The Monster

New TIDOwave post April 11th, 2008



TIDOwave has a new post on thier site.

It reads:

To MissingTeddyHansen.

There's no help coming. Stop your campaign.

There's nothing here.



Interesting indeed.

Cloverfield Hidden Extra - Rack 'Em and Pack 'Em



Its hidden to the left of EspaƱol on the Set Up menu.

Funny easter egg lol. Were phantoms in 15!

Japanese Box Office of Cloverfield





The weekend numbers are in for Japan, and Cloverfield pulled in $2,580,377, making it number one.

According to Variety:


"Cloverfield" hit No. 1 at the Japanese weekend B.O., following its April 5 bow on 235 screens.... This was 30.2% more than "Dreamgirls," which opened on 287 screens and finished with $19.3 million and only 1.2% less than "Babel," which bowed on 351 screens and ended with $20 million.

Helmer Matt Reeves, producer J.J. Abrams and members of the pic's cast and staff came to Japan to tubthump for the pic. Also distrib Paramount mounted an intensive campaign centered on the Web, which succeeded in drawing the target teens and twenties demo, as well as dating couples.

Paramount accordingly expects "Cloverfield," which was inspired by "Godzilla" and other Japanese monster epics, to hit the $20 million mark.


As a total, Cloverfield is expected to make $180 million worldwide. Not bad for movie with a $25-30 million budget.

DVD Easter Eggs- Supplemental Files

Thanks to Dennis and Cloverfield Clues! Awesome Cloverfield site for all info about the Cloverfield universe.

From Cloverfield Clues








Hidden somewhere in the Cloverfield DVD menu, is a mysterious Chapter 17, titled #USGX-8810-B467 SUPPLEMENTAL FILES. It doesn't normally appear in the menu, so I don't know how you would navigate to it using your DVD player. It looks like this may have even been accidentally left in the final version, because the quality is not as good as the rest of the menu areas. Will this all be part of the eventual CloverfieldFiles.com website?

From Cloverfield Clues

The next screen shows a list of supplemental files with various suffix codes.



I was only able to find three of the actual files:



13VD - TAG VD #18 - #21 - This looks like a sampling of some of the Chuai station videos. The numbering indicates that there are many more than the seven that were originally found. These don't appear to be on the DVD however.



144VD - Person Of Interest - JL VD #2 - #12 - This is a screenshot of the list of JamieAndTeddy videos.In this case, the indication of "online source" fits with the fact that the videos are not on the DVD.



34VD - Org. of interest - Tag VD #12 - This is a screen shot of the Slusho! site, but it is strangely missing the "Slusho Making Fresh Improvements Just For You" tagline and the Mobile phone message. This is also marked "online source".


Thanks Dennis of Cloverfield Clues!

More Cloverfield DVD exclusives!

Thanks to Tagruato Blogspot and Cloverfield Clues!





There are FOUR more Cloverfield DVD exclusives that have announced, which in addition to the Standard, HMV/FYE/Suncoast SteelBook, and Play.com editions, bring the current total to seven (you can't buy just six?).

ShockTillYouDrop is reporting that Best Buy will be offering a bonus disc entitled "TJ Miller's Video Diary". It will include nearly 30-minutes of behind-the-scenes footage with T.J. Miller - the talkative, and resilient, camera operator of the film.


Austrailia's EzyDVD will have an Limited-Edition Collector's Tin, which will be available Thursday, 22 May 2008. They are also listing a 2-disc collector's set which will also be available the same date. It's interesting that Cloverfield premiered in Australia one day before the US, but they will get their DVD a month later.

MovieWeb is reporting that Target will be offering an exclusive Rob's Goin' to Japan Party Mix CD with their Cloverfield DVDs, which is a stripped down version of the CD given out at Rob's Going Away Party. It will include the following tracks:

1. OK GO * Here It Goes Again
2. Goldfrapp * Ooh La La
3. Coconut Records * West Coast
4. Scissors for Lefty * Got Your Moments
5. The Vapors * Turning Japanese
6. Parliament * Give Up The Funk
7. Of Montreal * Wraith Pinned To The Mist
8. The Blood Arm * Do I Have Your Attention?
9. Bright Eyes * Four Winds

FYI, you can buy the full version of Rob's Party mix on iTunes.

Lastly, Sears/Kmart will be offering a free Cloverfield ring tone.
