Ok, it seems for some reason the comments have blown up again with the “I saw it, it’s alive” versus “i saw it, it’s a lion” argument. Now for those following what has been posted on this site, you already know that it is 100% “alive” and not “a lion”. For those who haven’t been following the news regarding the movie, please take a second to read some of the previous posts on the site before making comments, particularly the recent interviews with Matt Reeves, the director of the movie (this one mentions the “alive” line).
“I jumped to the microphone and said the line, “I saw it! It’s alive! It’s huge!” And one of the most amusing things is I had come home and someone on the web had taken that section and started to do an analysis on it and thought I said, “It was a lion.” The way I speak was too fast sometimes and they couldn’t make it out.”
He clearly claims that they filmed the teaser trailer before they even started filming the movie, and it was him who yelled “I Saw it, it’s alive” in the trailer because he didn’t feel like people would know the movie was about a monster. There are even jokes amongst the cast and crew regarding everyone on the internet thinking they said “a lion”. So please read a few of the more recent posts before you post comments, and for those of you that have been following this for a while now, please be easy on those people that may not have been following it for as long, and reply to their comments with links to where they can find the information, don’t just bash them. Thanks.
Also, I am aware of the radio ads that will be hitting airwaves soon as posted by Slashfilm, but there’s nothing new, it’s basically just the audio from the current TV spots…
