A third photo (seen above) was added to the 1-18-08.com Cloverfield viral website today. All of the photos thus far have featured time codes. Let’s first take a look at the previous photos and analyze the clues.
The original photo showed a close-up of two wide eyed fearful young women at 12:36 am. Some people speculated that the two women were actually the same actress. This has been confirmed false. She can also supposedly be seen in the trailer at the party. Some people claim they can see something in between their heads. A monster may-be? How about their hair and a street light?
The second photo appeared a few days back and shows Rob drinking at his farewell party at 12:01am (35 minutes before the original photo). Notice the intentionally blurred Slusho t-shirt on the guy giving him the drink.
The recently added third photograph was taken at 12:48am, a whole 12 minutes after the first photo. The first “roar” occurred around 12:30am, and I would venture to guess that the end of the trailer cuts off around 12:40-45ish AM. So this would definitely be the furthest into the plot of the film that we have seen so far. And it looks like things get worse, much worse. The photo features a couple women walking through a fog of smoke, covering their mouths, while two men (possibly police or SWAT team?) run around in the background. It looks very reminiscent of 9/11.Â The two women in this new photo are not the two young women from Photo #1, nor were they visible (by my eye) in the Trailer’s party scene. I could be wrong.
I played around with the contrast and brightness of the photo and this is what I got (click on the photo to enlarge):
The man behind the woman in blue is clearly firing a gun back towards the camera which is why I speculate that he’s military or police. The guy on the way left also appears to be wearing a uniform. The fact that he’s running and the women are walking lead me to conclude (based on my limited clues) that he is also a proactive member of society (be it military, swat, police…etc).
Are there any more clues in this photo that we may be missing?
What is Cloverfield? For those of you living in a cave, Cloverfield is the code-name for a new Paramount monster movie produced by Lost co-creator JJ Abrams, which is being filmed from the point of view of a group of people with a handheld consumer video camera. The cast consists of mostly unknowns and newcomers. The film’s teaser movie trailer played in front of Transformers and didn’t feature a title. Viral websites have been found, the first of which is the film’s release date: 1-18-08.com, which has been updated periodically with timecoded photos.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
