Cloverfield/1-18-08: Possible Plot Spoilers

AintItCool has a new scoop on the JJ Abrams produced monster flick code-named Cloverfield/1-18-08. An e-mail tipper named DJ confirms that the teaser trailer footage is actually in the film, but in a more unabridged fashion. He talks about a new scene which may be used for a second movie trailer (or may-be not) where "several traumatized survivors, moving through a very dark corridor there's slight cold blue illumination from halogen emergency lighting, a girl in the group is badly beaten up she's bleeding and looks very sickly."

The main group lead by Rob "limp along until US Army soldiers storm in shouting at them, demanding they drop they're weapons, they shout back they're unarmed, there's a lot of commotion, then they're herded briskly up some E.T style scientific tubing into a makeshift aid center, its very dark, threes lots of doctors tending to wounded and military walking about making the scene very busy. 'What is that thing?' they ask as they catch their breath, the cryptic answer comes from a soldier 'We don't know, but it's winning'"

Rob tries to leave. Apparently his girlfriend got lost in the mix (this is probably what much of the story is about – finding his girlfriend in all this craziness. The sick girl mutters "I feel really sick", "the camera pans to her, shes looks like shes about to throw up, and curiously is crying blood from her right eye. Someone shouts 'She's been bitten!' Chaos ensues... Scene end."

This sounds like a cool scene, but some of this seems like bad screenwriting. A group of army men storm the group of kids demanding they drop their weapons? That sounds really odd. And if one of the main characters was in fact bitten, than that does pretty much confirm the fact that littler monster creatures exist. I'm not sure how reliable this report is, as it seems like a first time e-mail scooper. JJ and the Bad Robot crew need to step it up. The buzz has worn down, and they need to provide more or this car is going to run out of gas soon.
