can anyone translate what it says?
It says "Regular Maintenance" based on translations on unFiction.
First the TIDO Wave site is locked down, and now this. The new video on Jamie's site... this can't be a coincidence.
Also there are posts on the Myspace pages indicating that Rob's going away party is tonight.
ah saw it was the best movie EVER!!! monster was sweet. but im sure the game's gonna keep going, cant wait for what's gonna come up
Russian blog of Tagruato company on livelornal.comhttp://tagruato.livejournal.com/
OK, either they're planning something, or this is the logical tie-up to where the movie & viral marketing have led. If the US government found out that a company is responsible for a monster (creating it, waking it, pissing it off, etc...) that destroyed Manhatten and killed thousands (tens of thousands), you'd bet your ass they'd be shut down in about a day while the government investigated (and if you think Guantanamo is bad, just imagine what they'd do to Tagruato). The other option is the sequel is going to involve investigations to find where the monster came from. If the hints about space are true, then I'm guessing we'll see War Of The Worlds pt2 (depending on how much money this makes, because they'll need a massive budget). Personally I hope they don't go that way because it would mean all the hints were bogus and a lot of us are going to feel used. On the other hand, the best Godzilla movie that wasn't made was written by a fan with a site and involved Ghidora as a science experiment an alien species used to exterminate their enemies, then it wound up here by accident. It could go that way and be an interesting movie, and explain why a flesh and bones creature wouldn't be destroyed by missile hits.
I Think We Are All In For A Wild Ride....TIDOwave's last 'cryptic' message...more parts of the 'game' popping up now...think about it...it can't just end.
Any way someone can post up some GIFs of the last scene in the movie? Where the mystery object crashes into the sea at Coney Island?
If you had read tagruato's website...the 'object' shouldn't be a 'mystery'....ChimpanzIII
Someone on this forum I'm in came up with this really great theory. I won't post it, because he should get the credit for this one.LINK:http://www.bzpower.com/forum/index.php?s=&showtopic=266520&view=findpost&p=5061145
I'm afraid I didn't catch it before the site went down.
That Tagruato journal....I dunno, do we think it may be legit? I doubt it, considering it's a livejournal. But who knows? Do we know somebody who can translate it?Just saw the movie, by the way.AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
anyone remember the name of the site that Rob says at the begining when he is talking to beth and he mentions "12 CHEST HAIRS.COM" or something like that..
wolfgang --http://cloverfieldclues.blogspot.com/2008/01/tagruato-headlines-altercation.html -- look for 'chimpanziii'

Since I was small boy, in me was the dream to manage company, similar to our. The company, where the workers persistently work and love each other. Companies, which would set as its goal a change in the peace to the best. Companies, which would bring prosperity of Japan and would broaden its wealth and knowledge into the universe. Unfortunately, the past week was not best for "Tagruato", company, which I so. I attempted to hide that occurred for a police study, but now arrived time to open entire and to raskazat' our history to peace. Our newest and best borax platform, Chuay station, underwent the attack of the terrorist group of the defenders of environment, who call itself "t.idoshave". They arranged a number of explosions at the station at the stations, which led to the loss of human lives and was placed tower on the elbows. "Tagruato" it encountered with these terrorists for many years, but with the aid of our friends in the police we succeeded herself in suppressing their attacks. However, this impact was too strong so as not to catch us. Chuay station was damaged. We persistently work, what not to allow loss to environment and we already select place in The antlanticheskeye ocean for reconstruction of the new station Of chuay, but thus far our works are conducted in the temporary structure. We also opened the charitable foundation Of chuay station where they transferred 300 million Jaehn to help of the families of victims, which worked on Chuay. On behalf of all in "Tagruato", I would want to thank for the large support, which we obtain from our the business of partners, friends and associates. We will not calm down for the moment bandits they will not disappear from the streets and they will not answer before those families, which for the fault of their hands sustained bitter losses. I know that with your aid of Tagruato it will not stop before the fanatics and will remain the company, about which I dreamed by boy - devoted to the mastery of the magic of our peace and controlling our future ".Translation of the bio page:"we find out peace.

Guys what if the thing that fell into the ocean in the finale scene was the satelite that crashed not too long ago..and it did say in the report that it crashed in the atlantic...Link: http://cloverfieldclues.blogspot.com/2008/01/tagruato-headlines-altercation.htmlAnd btw jamie is visible in a few other backgrounds other than just the couch seen just an fyi if you go see it keep an eye out for her...by the way anyone think that the red things on the side of its head looked vunerable? or like lungs? kinda like in beowulf the mutated dude had a bad here that was his weakspot...
I'm not sure if this if this is completely relevant, but I think the name " Cloverfield " implies the complete destruction of Manhattan. A Blast radius from a large missle normally looks like a clover leave, and with enough missile blasts going in different directions would look quite a bit like field of clovers. The closing of these sites coincide with the movie's opening date, and the myspace pages all have last log-in dates of 1-18-08. I don't think they'll change after today.I think all the hype for Cloverfield is really intended to give us a small glimpse into this universe, and make us want more. The little hints on the internet, the small details in the movie ( like the ending shot of the thing in the ocean, I was the only one who caught that in the theater ), and the character build up we've seen in the last year. They all point to a franchise, and these site's shutting down should show us all if the product took hold enough to continue.I would like to thank everyone for giving me all these things to think about while waiting for Cloverfield to come out. It was, and still is, a blast to investigate this stuff.
I'm convinced that those red sacs on the monster's head are used for smelling, and perhaps roaring.
For the record, is anyone else getting tired of bad reviews because it "echoes 9/11"? -_-
Just wanted to point out, and wondered had any one else noticed. The significance of the number six was repeatedly pointed out over this long while. I noticed the time at he beginning of the film when it starts at Beth's fathers house is 6:42 amthen again later while Jason has the camera it shows 6:42pm. And the ending of the film under the bridge before the air raid, its shown again it is 6:42 am. Also notice 4+2 = 6 Just thought id point it out
Oh, and theres six focus characters :'DMarlena, Rob, Jason, Lily, Beth, and the very loved Hud.
i think skele gee is onto something....there were six people that were part of the orginal group...6 letters in slusho!, and the logo you cant drink just six, and clover has six letters as well...the monster had a total of six limbs (4 arms two legs, excluding tail)...in the flick they mention a street or a subway called "sixth"...Robert= six letters....Hudson=six letters...maybe just coincedence
I agree amanda. I didn't even notice any 9/11 references until i read a few reviews. I mean, really? Of all the movies that have to do with new york, they choose this one to tag that lame attack on? Or how about movies that were cash cowed based on 9/11? Just review this movie based on its own content for crying out loud.
Alright, I saw the movie today and I've got to say, IT'S FREAKING FANTASTIC. I was shocked throughout the entire movie. But after reading some of these theories and hints, I'm confused. First of all, the scene of Coney Island and the object falling into the ocean, is it a satellite or a monster? How well does it fit into the timeline? Also, at the end when it says, "It's still alive," does that suggest a sequel? Because the ending was *SPOILER!* a bit loose ended. Does anyone know if J.J. Abrams is going to have some sort of.. Q&A to clarify some of these discrepancies? I'd really like to figure this out. And people have been saying that Rob says it's March but the movie's supposed to be shot during January. I sort of think that's strange because, as someone's said, it'd be freezing cold but no one's wearing any outerwear. There's also a theory that seems a bit crediblehttp://www.bzpower.com/forum/index.php?s=8b7e27eb6f46d39fbcd298d754b8e795&showtopic=266520&st=160&p=5061145entry5061145But I'm not sure if it's plausible. If it is, wouldn't that also make a lot of sense about the title of the movie? And, wouldn't that suggest a sequel also?Thanks!
I just get irritated when people go in and see a building fall-- then immediately write-off anything else the movie has because "Oh, the camera is shaky," "It echoes 9/11," or "There's not enough history about the monster."
There is **speculation** of a possible Cloverfield trailer.... Reeves commented on it, at the red carpet premiere.check it out: www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/10927 also. Abrams, according to IMDB, is in pre production for a new "ocean-based" movie. but I doubt it would be anything regarding Cloverfield. it might be a little too soon for that. you never know.... these movies aren't too expensive to make and will benefit greatly from the advanced viral marketing/buzz. I could easily see it happening.
Sezar wrote: "I'm not sure if this if this is completely relevant, but I think the name 'Cloverfield' implies the complete destruction of Manhattan."Sezar, the director of the movie stated in one of the interviews printed on this website that the name "Cloverfield" was based on a mistake. They were coming up with a temporary code name for the movie and someone accidentally called it "Cloverfield" thinking that was the name of the street Abrams's old office had been on, when the street was actually called "Cloverdale." There is no big mystery behind it...
Yeah Pinkhammer, but I like my reasoning, too. I'm not saying your wrong but why run with a mistake? Because people will wonder if it was or not.
Actually, there is mention of 9/11 in the movie, but nothing serious... just after the quake and the roar in the beginning, when people are running up to the roof, and then when they get back downstairs after the explosion, you can hear a lot of people in the background speculating as to whether or not its another terrorist attack.Personally I don't like people relating the movie to 9/11 in a negative way, but I love that the characters jump to that conclusion. The country is still paranoid, and they *do* live in New York. Its realistic.
I think it's cathartic for the 9/11 speculations to be there when it comes to the current 20-somethings out there. We've "grown up" with this paranoia. It's good to be able to face that against a truly fantastical scenario IMO.
Maybe the livejournal Russian blog has to do with the guy speaking Russian to HUD in the street?There's a new post at the livejournal site http://tagruato.livejournal.com/Run through Babel fish:Attempt on the life of the executive director TagruatoJan. 19th, 2008 at 1:18 PMCorporation Tagruato with the pride reports that Ghana Yoshida did not suffer from the recent attack and will continue its trip through THE USA, as it was planned. "they attempted to force me to lower hands", smiled Yoshida at the press conference of company BevVo, "but I still can show the stars". Yoshida was attacked the day before yesterday in the daytime by radical group after it left the restaurant. For scum it was possible to only detain Yoshidu and to pour out to its head incomprehensible liquid, until Yoshida is pulled out from the hands and scatters those attacked. The division of safety Tagruato assumes that the attack is the affair of the hands of the same villains, that they attacked Chuay station weeks earlier. In spite of incident, Yoshida is well disposed and assures its supporters, that that occurred will not influence arrival Slusho! for the American market. "for me it is worthwhile to thank these criminals. Because of them for me it was necessary to abolish encounter. Now I can prolong my stay in New York. I am assembled to more look around the sights of this excellent city ". When they asked it, it does fear further attacks of the radicals, which were hidden from the place of attack, Yoshida it answered "no in me there is no occasion more to be disturbed about them".
I remember thinking of 9/11 images for a few moments after the monster first walked through their street... when everyone was coughing and in a daze, lose papers floating, dust... but, it was only for a few moments, and it cetainly didn't ruin the movie for me. I think it's just coincidence, and reviewers will trash something like this to create something interesting to read.The movie was awesome.
Just a comment about no one wearing coats if Cloverfield takes place on 1/18 in NYC. I live in NYC. I was outside yesterday. I wasn't wearing a coat. It very rarely snows in Manhattan. If it's snowing in NJ and CT, the most we get is rain.The weather right now is in the 40s and it easily gets up into the 50s and 60s even in winter.
but cloverfield didnt take place 1/18 it was may 22 i think
Right - this movie DID NOT TAKE PLACE ON JANUARY 18th! It was just the release date. The first pictures on the 01-18-08 site with the date stamp 01-18-08 was just a fun way to promote the day the movie came out. :)
For the record, is anyone else getting tired of bad reviews because it "echoes 9/11"? -_-Yes, yes, yes! For cryin' out loud. It reminds people of 9/11 because *that's* what it would LOOK LIKE!! Is Abrams supposed to make buildings falling down look *different* to appease the whiners? The only reason it evokes anything is because we all now know what it would look like for going through 9/11.It's a stupid argument and only tells more about the reviewer than about the movie.As far as the shaky camerwork... What the hell do people want? Like my wife last night. She hated it. She wanted a *story*. I could not get it through to her that it was the documentary nature of it that was the thing. Imagine you're a DoD official watching this after the fact. Didn't matter.Too bad really.One more comment. On the seeming "timeline discrepancy." It's very easy, really. The Rob's Party/TIDOWave/Tagruato buzz was to give us the sense of *now* and immediacy for the people actually in movie, but if it had happened in May 2007, you might think that only now would they be finding a camera buried in the rubble of Central Park.You get the best of both worlds, erm, timelines :-)
Lol im a big gamer and there is a game coming out called Little Big Planet where users create their own like monster type thing. when i get it im soo making a clone of the cloverfield monster XD
First off great film!!!!!You know what is interesting about people reviewing it, is they want their money back, waste of $15 dollars blah blah.... The thing is, it cost 25 million to make and if 5 million people see it, which very plausible just based on curiosity viewers alone, it will be profitable so making sequels is smart and Abrams appears to be smart unlike most people who don't like the movie because it "makes them sick." The reason people don't like it is because they don't want to figure it out they like a movie that spells it out for them and quite frankly im glad this movie is the way it is. Yeah i want to know more but that is what will make me go to more sequels
Anybody see the cameras on the helmets of those Marines when Marlena explodes? I think that's where a sequel is going to come from. Matt Reeves said he wanted another camera pov himself.
Those aren't cameras on the Army soldiers' helmets. They're attachments for Night Vision Goggles.
I think they're making a sequel, but it's just from a different perspective red kaiman suggested. I mean, Reeves has been hinting at it and if he's suggesting it, wouldn't he have started shooting already? I mean, I don't know if this makes sense but if he wanted to make a sequel, he would've filmed during the movie to get another point of view. Yahoo says Reeves might want to make a sequel, which I hope they do. http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/justthefacts_cloverfield.htmlConfusing!!
when did the "satellite" crash?
Has anyone really notice that all the sites related to Cloverfield are shut down? I haven't been on Cloverfieldclues in 24 hours and now all this happen!!??? I so new this was going to happen and I was freaking out last night. At 12:00 I’m like, “the monster just crashed the party!“ And now they're saying that the monster attack didn't happen last night? I haven't seen the movie and I don't think I can:( But it looks like that the date May 22 is when the attack really happens. Would that be 07 or 08? if its 08 then does that means that there's way more stuff on Cloverfield till May 22? Or was it 07 and there will be no more Cloverfield hype? I really need some one to help me now. And I don't want the movie to be spoiled for me. Please respond! I'm going to post this on some other recent blogs on Cloverfieldclues so I can get some help. like some really smart person writing a really BIG paragraph with NO spoilers! just facts and clues please! fluffy
One of the interviews in the week previous to the film's release was someone saying that of course there were going to be allusions/parallels to 9/11, just as the original Godzilla was a result of the cold war paranoia in the 50s.And, I don't know, maybe it's because I'm not American, but I'm sick of so many people bringing things back to 9/11. It happened, it sucked, move on. So many other just as terrible things have happened since then. Btw, this is just my opinion and I'm not trying to start a flame war or anything.Also, I thought the guy talking to Hud in the street was speaking Japanese, and I entertained the thought that it was Ganu ^_^
If you look at the name of the picture on the Tagruato site the name is http://tagruato.jp/tag_final.jpgthis probably means that its not comming back

Anyone else see the executive director of Tagruato, Ghana Yoshida?They made it pretty obvious which one he was in the movie...
The original Gojira (Godzilla here in the states) had nothing to do with the so call Cold War, but post Atomic Japan. Dealing with life after the bomb. The version released in the US with Raymond Burr, cuts out 30 minutes of footage, and storyline.
