Not a whole lot happened over the weekend that I’m aware of anyways, but here are what some of the other sites posted while I wasn’t sitting in front of my computer.
Cloverfield Clues had a commenter that was able to determine exactly which newspaper it is that is being sent along with the Slusho merchandise. It appears to be the Nikkan Sun (Japanese Daily Sun) which can be found in Hawaii, NY andÂ Southern California. They also have some higher quailty scans of the clippings that were shipped with the Slusho stuff.
1-18-08 Project Cloverfield is reporting that there were sound effects stolen from a set computer and uploaded to the unfiction forums over the weekend.Â Apparently the audio clip(s) were removed from unfiction due to being contacted by Paramount. 1-18-08 Project Cloverfield still has a youtube video embedded containing the audio that you can check out. I’m not going to embed it here for a couple reasons, 1) if Paramount really did have unfiction remove it, then it’s pointless for me post it. And 2) and this is most likely the case, it’s just some kid with a CD full of sound F/X that he threw together and released. The story is just too ridiculous, I mean come on, someone just walked onto a set trailer and began downloading files? And do studios even keep their audio post-production stuff on set? I guess they could, but either way I still think its absolutely ridiculous to think that someone could just walk into a trailer on a movie set.
And lastly there seems to be a site that people think is related to the movie, but is obviously not.Â Cloverfield Parasite has a good write up about the site in general and why it’s most likely fake, which you can pretty much tell anyways. The site is rageofthegods.com and I’m not going to write anymore about it, but if you feel like checking it out for yourself be my guest, but make sure to check out Cloverfield Parasite’s write up on it as well to save yourself some time.
So that’s my weekend round-up. I really don’t think any of this is too exciting, I mean the sound effects are interesting but just too unbelievable. And the website is obviously fake. So it looks like the only update is high quality scans of the newspaper clippings and verification of what newspaper it is. Hope everyone had a good weekend, hopefully we’ll get some better information this week.
