Well, I got spanked. I got 9 out of 20, maybe I should've just googled it.
Was that 20/20 really what you got?

Gabriel said...

Yeah...I opted for the highlight. Some of the answers caught me off guard, really would have failed had I tried it on my own.

Atalaya said...

I hate to be the protagonist, but this site has become just one massive advert after another, rather than clues or theory.

And you will most likely delete this comment like you have before.

Gabriel said...

Atalaya - Dennis is doing the best he can to inform us about the marketing and clues related to this film.

Sure, his updates involve cast/crew interviews, television spots, promotional photographs etc. But people (like me) love that. It keeps us informed.

He also brings out the podcasts every week to discuss the CLUES (i.e. JamieAndTeddy, Tagruato, TidoWave, etc.) and he includes those topics in his updates whenever something new involving them surfaces.

So I really don't see what the problem is.

mistermunky69 said...

The fact of the matter is, there isn't going to be a whole hell of a lot more "clues" going on. The movie comes out in less than a month,and its time for the full blown media assault.

We've had 5 months to blog about clues and theories. Its time to get ready to watch the movie. I think one of the last things you might see is a final jamie/teddy video and an answer to who Rob gets a job with. Thats pretty much it. (Unless JJ has some bombshell cliffhanger planned that we have to see the movie to understand)

Also,For what its worth, Dennis has already stated this will be a spoiler free site.

MAGK said...

i 'cheated' as well for 2nd question and on. Found some of the questions very interesting and I wonder if they are actually somewhat clues to the film. I loved the book "Invasion Of The Body Snatchers." I would've gotten all those questions right.

To atalaya, I think Dennis is doing a good job. Like gabriel, i love the promo stuff just as much as the clues. Cloverfieldclues is without a doubt the best cloverfield site out there.

Erick said...

Atalaya, seriously dude, if you want exact plot points and shot-for-shot desciptions of the film, feel free to head elsewhere (aintitcool, etc.). It is now time to bring this beast ashore and enjoy the ride toward the 18th.

Dennis said...

Jimmy said... Well, I got spanked. I got 9 out of 20, maybe I should've just googled it. Was that 20/20 really what you got?

No. I only got a 10 out of 20. I put that up, because it says "Good Job!" if you get them all right, which I thought was a nice touch.


Atalaya said... I hate to be the protagonist, but this site has become just one massive advert after another, rather than clues or theory. And you will most likely delete this comment like you have before.

I wish there were more "clues" too, but I just report what Cloverfield news I can find. Since it is the holiday season, and there have been NO clues lately, it's either "promotional" news or nothing.

As soon as there are any new clues, you'll certainly see them here.

And for the record, I very rarely delete comments.

cburgess_ccrunner said...

iv seen them on vh1,scifi,usa,g4tv, and comedu central...yes comedy central.

cburgess_ccrunner said...

ok so iv been doin some thinking and i love some feed back on this... ok so the gov't calls this monster or whole situation cloverfield.I understand that but im still baffled on the "multiple sightings" part...does it mean multiple monsters (doubt it) or does it travel between borrows or is there multiple attacks and we only see the destruction of NYC...idk all just ideas.Once again tell me what you think.

Clifford M. said...

I think they mean multiple people that saw the event/monster?

zurcher said...

forgot to post the link so this makes my double post guess its really a triple. sorry.

the true story behind the poster

tom said...

Dennis,

Could you somehow label the "Humor" posts so we don't waste any more time
going to a site where someone is showing us how good at photoshop they are? I do not come here to look at
silly pictures.

tom said...

May be wishful thinking, but I would
like to believe until proven otherwise,
that multiple sightings refers to multiples cities because the trailer says that the site formerly known as
central park, just like we don't refer to the WTC as WTC anymore, we call it
ground zero. If other attacks occurred in other places, then they would change the name to indicate military involvement there also.

Michael said...

multiple sightings can mean that there is evidence that there are more than one sighting of the monster than just the fooatge. like...people seeing it and reporting it, that counts as a sighting.

Jimmy said...

My theory was, and continues to be, that Cloverfield is a musical.

Oh, what's that in the sky?
See it flying high?
I think it's lady liberty's head
I'm almost sure we'll all be dead
Here comes the army pumping lead
into this monster in our Cloverfieeeeeld

Oh no, oh no, it seems we're in a rut
a camera in my hand and some Slusho in my gut
The monster's getting near and it's soon becoming clear
We'll all need to escape our Cloverfieeeeeld

There's rifles unloading and people exploding and cars getting crushed in the street
If Hud loses our tape we could be royally raped, crushed under this monster's feet
Tagruato's in a real big mess, when the president finds out what they did they'll have to confess
They've decimated our poor Cloverfieeeeeld


Ahem, I liked the musical idea a little too much, and was in quite the creative mood. ahaha.

It should be added to the Cloverfield dvd as an extra sang by the cast

cburgess_ccrunner said...

Lol nice musical.

briareus said...

so it's cthulhu or what?

ThatGuy said...

cburgess: thanks, haha.

briareus : I think Abrams himself confirmed it wasn't Lovecraft, so no Cthulhu... Which is good, we get to be surprised with a brand new monster! :P

I think you answered your own question ;)

It's been floating around UnFiction - someone is trying to pass it off as Cloverfield marketing material.

IT IS NOT REAL... the Cloverfield font doesn't even match, and it looks heavily Photoshopped. Just another FAKE monster fan-art.

Dennis said...

Tom...

Here's your fake monster...it's from Ultraman: http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/7386/ultramannexusae7.jpg

16/20.

I did an experiment where I went through the entire quiz without clicking any answers, but I somehow still got 1/20. Huh.

When are they updating the questions?
