The Hasbro Toy shop now has a Cloverfied monster available for preorder (shipping in October). There’s no image, but the description sounds great.
- 70 points of articulation and incredible life-like detail
- Authentic sound
- 14â€ tall
- 10 parasites
- Two interchangeable heads
- Statue of Liberty head accessory
- Special Cloverfield collectorâ€™s edition packaging
I don’t know that I would call the Cloverfield collector’s edition packaging a “feature” but maybe it will be amazing.
I don’t think the $99 price tag is amazing. That will probably scare anyone but the most die-hard fan away.
Pretty cool example of the Cloverfield viral marketing kicking into high gear for the movie’s premier on January 18.
Several videos have been found online that “seem” to be news reports from various countries (Spain, Germany) showing the destruction of a Tagruato Oil Rig Platform.
Check out Project Cloverfield’s coverage for translations of the videos.
Slusho! just released a new commercial and as I was digging around the Slusho! site, I searched for some of the other names and terms I saw. It turns out there is a huge viral campaign, very similar to what’s happening for the Dark Knight, for Cloverfield.
Digging around all of the sites, you start to get an idea about the Cloverfield movie and what it may all be about. It all seems very Godzilla like to me (which isn’t a bad thing).
Scientist discover a new (and tasty) organism underwater and begin to experiment and develop things with it. A trigger such as this could easily mutate something (maybe a whale – mentioned many times on the Slusho! site) to gigantic proportions. The organisms within the Slusho! drink –which must remain frozen to stay fresh– could have disastrous effects after long term gestation in a person (the exploding person in the Cloverfield trailer). I managed to find the following sites that are all related to Cloverfield:
- Tagruato – Be sure to read the Deep Sea Drilling and the Yoshida Medial Research (and related) sections.
- Noriko Yoshida’s Website
After I had done a lot of digging, I stumbled upon ProjectCloverfield.com, which has done a great job of logging and following all the viral clues. Definitely a site to keep up with, at least until the film comes out.
Well, not really, but you can actually see a split-second glimpse of something in the newly released trailer.
Browsing Michael’s comments, I found a few more interesting links regarding the creature.
This creature mock up image, mirrors some of the details leaked. This means the details were either accurate or the image was created based on the details.
This video, loops the footage I pulled the screen-shot from.
Regardless, I’m excited to see the film. It’s an interesting concept, by a creator I like. Having said that, the LOST Missing Pieces shorts are somewhat disappointing, so far. The first with Jack was interesting, but the second one (with Hurley) felt like a Saturday Night Live skit that was going nowhere.
