    This could take place after the movie… or before, what if this is the baby monster u suggested could have been killed by tagruato. Or is this the monster following the events of the movie?

    P.S. what is with the strange scratches on the bottom right tentacle, is that just coincidence, or are those markings?

    Well, judging by the creature on the left, something took a bite out of it by the size of that bite size and as for the other might be the same…this was his meal on the way here perhaps?

    I’m guessing maybe 2 seas creatures were mutated and the mutation caused them to be more feral. This in turn caused them to fight each other and one lost. Or maybe when that oil rig exploded it took out one of the monsters.

    I have been a long supporter of cloverfield news.com for a while now, without ever posting….but YAY! ITS THE 18th! I am seeing this movie with my friends at 730. The mystery will be over πŸ™

    Anyway, I think that’s just whale guts that the monster sliced open. I still dont understand how this movie is just PG in my town.

    I’m thinking that there is one BIG monster and then several little tiny ones. Maybe they destroy a small one at the beginning of the movie and aren’t sure what it is and this sort of leads up to the main story and destruction.

    I think it is the creature. From the horns on the portion of the object and the claw / finger of the creature. That finger looks like it would produce the damage on the statue of liberty.

    I loved this movie, It was so wortht the wait.

    It seems like this might be the after effect of all the bombing we see take place in the previous photos. Maybe the blood from the last photo comes from this creature.

    Movie was awesome gonna see it again tonight.

    Hey Admin…do you think that the monster killed it’s rival, being that was dormant for so long and well, kinda hungry I suppose. For survivng reasons, it killed it mate or partner…who knows..but I saw the movie last night and I rocked, I had so much fun and was not let down at all, just curious now…

    They are whales. The one at the very top is a Sperm Whale. Something definitely took a chunk out of them. Sperm whales dive extremely deep perhaps they came in contact with the giant monster, but are for sure whales and that is for sure a sperm whale.

    Yes, they are actually all sperm whales. In the background you can see a boat…but its the type of boat that is more significant. Its the boat that you find more animal/ocean activists using. Perhaps they are from TIDO wave?

    Sperm whales are a deep diving creature…I believe they can be found off the coast of Japan and the Mariana Trench. Not sure though.

    If we assume that this is in real time though, which we’ve been led to believe so far, the party isn’t until tonight so it can’t be THE monster. All the bombing and destruction hasn’t happened. It’s probably a whale. I think. :/

    Look at the upper left “creature” It’s a sperm whale… i’m guessing the others are too.It’s an ironic aspect though considering what the sperm whale is; It WAS the largest carnivore on earth, HAD the largest brain, and WAS the loudest animal as well. I’m guessing in the cloverfield world, it’s not anymore :D! LOVE THE MOVIE! Love the look of the real monster.. very very well done!

    i loved the movie… as for what that picture is, i cannot say without ruining something. For all of you out there who say the movie is trash (i.e. many film critics) Take the time to consider what was really going on in the film. So many critics are arguing that they had no idea what was going on, but that is the point of the whole viral marketing campaign. If the government finds a video camera with a film in it of a bunch of terrified civilians, you can’t expect all the answers. that is what made it brilliant. No profound lines that seemed scripted, No holds barred for anyone at any time. So many people whining about nausea and due to a shaky camera- get the F*ck over it- there is nothing neat or pretty about this movie, because it is not meant to be a movie. I almost feel sorry for those who weren’t immersed in the viral stuff that we have all come to appreciate, because for us, these people are practically our acquaintances. In a world where the internet has become a primary source of communication, Abrams and crew gave us an opportunity to KNOW these people just as we “know” so many others- through AIM, Myspace, blogs, facebook, etc. This has made everything worth while… rock on guys, it’s been a great adventure

    That’s two whales. On the left, we see a dead whale (not a baleen whale, but a toothed whale, maybe a sperm whale) with its mouth hanging open, a big chunk bitten out of his head by something big with one bite – just like in the Apple Logo. On the right, we see another dead whale, its ribcage showing out. The parallel folds in the bottom right corner of the picture might be ventral pleats.

    To everyone across the ocean that we call the Atlantic, from your previous owners over here in the U.K.I’d like wish you all a big thanks and to have fun at the movie over the weekend. Sadly, we have to wait until February for it to open here. Let’s hope it’s everything and more you dreamed of. From the online reviews I’ve read, everyone is loving it !

    Remember, we all played a huge part in making this movie the phenomenon it is today – and if it wasn’t for people like Tom “The man with plan”(Admin) then we wouldn’t be here today ,doing this right now.

    So thank you Tom from me and everyone here in the U.K

    The movie was amazing in my opinion. Obviously you should have known going in you weren’t going to see the monster a whole lot, since it’s filmed from a 1st person point of view and the monster is running a muck throughout the entire city, and the characters we follow can’t be in the same place as the monster the entire time. And as far as the movie being too short, I thought it was a perfect length, if it were any longer it would have gotten repetative and boring, plus a lot of people can only handle so much shaky-cam.

    I left the theater feeling…bummed out. πŸ™

    And at first I thought it was because of how it ended. And it has some destruction in it? But I expected more. ALOT more. My heart was pounding…whats cooler than the movie? Is knowing alot of us we’re in it together! πŸ™‚
    I know my bummed outedness, was BECAUSE of the ending. Thats like…my biggest fear ever.

    I was bummed because I DID know so much about the characters, and JJ made me cry. It was a sad movie. Scarry? MEH! Sad, yes.

    There we’re only about 10 people in the theater. Second it ended, it got a TON of boos. (ok well 9 of em)

    I stuck around, waited until the credits started in the movie. Left. Heavy hearted. I wanted more! And I hope the online portion delivers.

    These look like tentacles or claw-like apendages (there was a suggested possible monster-source in the forums this makes me think of). Or at least, the closest pink one does; the grey one in the background sadly looks like a whale–either a casualty of the airstrike, or the monster’s attempted meal. Hard to say.

    I went looking through my DVD collection yesterday, checking run-times. This isn’t any shorter at all than one hell of a lot of films/movies that get released. What did you want anyway? a 3 hour long Lord Of The Rings style of storytelling or a realistic and bearable, normal length feature? Some people need to get their heads out of their own asses, wake up and smell reality.

    .. wait a minute… how is there still any debate over whether or not its whales? I posted a link to the picture they took the left one from…. go back and look at it.. it is the SAME picture….its a sperm whale.

    I couldn’t find the original of the one on the right, but your looking at its with its head on the right out of the picture. You see its right flipper with tears on it right below the seagull. The gull sitting right next to its ribcage. And then its tail sitting behind it where everyone is seeing a claw. Its arched upwards and then the tip of its tail comes back down to rest on the beach.

    But the back left IS a sperm whale, as I said, I posted a link earlier today up there of the original picture. And the head at the bottom looks like possibly Sperm whale, or something beaked.

  51. Britt

    For the record, if no one has noted it, I think it may be 3 sperm whales. There is the one at top left with the chunk missing from its head, the one with only ribcage/body visible and if you look at the bottom left you can see that the other visible chunk is part of a head with teeth showing as well as an eye. The teeth are pointing towards the ribcage of the body next to it suggesting that it is a disembodied head or a totally separate whale.

    They are not mutants, monsters or claws or tentacles. They are whales.
    What you see on the right side that looks like a claw is a pectoral fin, probably of a humpback. Behind the fin are the ribs, which as you can see, have been nibbled upon by Clovey.

    Top left is a sperm whale with a big bite out of its head.

    Bottom left… I can’t identify the species, but it’s a whale’s face.
    So I guess, for people who were wondering about the connection with whales, they’re monster feed.

    Save the whale Campaigners are not going to be pleased. The monster is obviously a wastefull creature as it only took one bite out of that whale in the background. Too much salt perhaps?

    Admin: I have (il)legally obtained myself a dandy copy of ‘Monster’. I would have given it a miss on your advice, but I think you are lying about how poor you thought it was because you are hellbent on denying me my life long dream of witnessing a mutated squid whale creature in a long overdue movie of it’s own!

    Hey Magic.. Yeah… i saw the scene. But I saw it the second time i watched the movie… I saw the midnight showing and everyone in the theatre missed it too.. So don’t feel bad. Its very subtle. Its definitely some kind of UFO falling into the ocean though, that’s for sure.

    As for the pictures of the guts. It’s a whale and maybe another whale? Not sure. The whale in the back got a big chunk of its head bitten off. The closer animal with the ribs showin… not sure if thats another whale or not.. But i’m thinking it must be because its pretty big. It’s not the monster because the Monster is still alive, according to Rob at the very very end of the credits over a distorted walkie-talkie. So hopefully they make a sequal. So the monster is an Alien. It wasn’t made for an organism in ‘Slusho’ which i never noticed once in the movie by the way. But I think this Slusho thing might be a way of killing the monster. Maybe not, but since missiles, bullets, bombs, and scuds didn’t kill it, I think it’s possible that something we consume as people on a daily basis could be something fatal to the monster. Slusho, might be just that. There were lots of message boards I saw where the geeks said the monster came to be from this ‘Slusho’ thing.. well, an organism or chemical inside the Slusho that created the monster.. Well wacthing the moive, thats flase! But maybe that chemical or organism is in fact the very thing that could kill the monster, or cripple it.. I mean, why else would they even make Slusho relevant to the movie? I dunno… just a theory. Let me know what you guys think. Haha… a monster that gets killed by a Slushy! πŸ™‚ Better make mine Cherry flavor! Peace!

    1st off the monster comes from the NY Harbor right, which is made of fresh water, whales almost never go into fresh water they are salt water, they die in fresh water so why would 2 sperm whales be in the NY harbor its deaf the Monster blown up ! and you see a photo that has all navy ships and aircraft blowing something up ? I know at the end there is a radio transmission that is backwards it says its still alive and I saw at the end something like a pod or something goes into the water on April 27 and someone above said something about the monster looked different at times I thought that too I think there was more then just one b/c the one that’s eat the guy with the camera doesn’t look as big as the one that steps on the tank and the one that attacks the bridge had like a tentacle so there are millions of theories who knows, that’s what JJ Abrams is all about making people think and wonder

If you move all the photos out of the way so there is only one photo on the screen and nothing on top of it, you can flip over the photos. there are messages on the back of some of them. one of them is a long message in japanese. if someone could translate it, there may be some interesting info there.
