Thanks to Kevin over at Chasing Squid for pointing this out to me.
There is a new article over at aintitcool.com from “untested sources” that seems to describe the opening scenes of the movie. Again, these may or may not be true, but if you don’t want to know anything about the movie, stop reading now.
“I have for you a description of a unseen new sequence from the film you all know as Cloverfield.
You know, the one with the monster?
I can now safely say the teaser is not separate from the film, its part of the beginning which was shown in an abridged fashion for the purpose of the teaser, it’s longer in the movie.
The new scene opens with 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 is comprised of 3 characters, Rob from the main trailer, the cameraman and a girl, though there may be others.
This scene takes place after the initial attack of “The monster” the scene we all saw in theatres. Rob is taking charge and telling everyone to keep calm, the girl says she doesn’t feel so good.
They 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”
The imagery in this scene is like something after a terrorist bombing. A carcass is wheeled past with his guts hanging out, the cameraman struggles to take in the surroundings.
Rob gets angry with the aggressiveness of the soldiers who now tell them they can’t leave, “I’m going out there, if you want to stop me you’ll have to shoot me” we gather he’s looking for his girlfriend. “I feel really sick” the girl unexpectedly mutters, 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. That’s all you get, this may be used for promotion and is a possibility for an upcoming trailer.
So that is what I’ll leave you with this weekend. Like they said over at Aintitcool, the line about the girl being bitten could lend some truth to the “raptor” like spawns of the main creature, but who knows. Again this is all rumor at this point due to lack of source, but interesting read none the less. Have a good weekend everyone.
