A New Fan Made Video Posing As 'Cloverfield 2' Clip...Or Vice Versa?

Here's another story that's hard to figure out because there just isn't any info about it.

The good folks over at Dread Central have posted a video clip (See above) that they discovered over on Youtube, that they believe may be a new viral clip for "Cloverfield 2". Fact is however, they don't know what it is. It may be an early look at the "Cloverfield" sequel, or a fan made video. There just isn't any info about the clip to know for sure.

The clip shows what looks like an outside shopping center, with a Triceratops fountain, mixed in with what looks like family video of a baby. Just like in J.J. Abrams film, the serenity is interrupted by an attack by a giant monster.

It is the appearance of the monster that casts the most doubt to this being an Abrams produced clip, because it looks like came straight out of "Cloverfield".

One also has to consider that Abrams has often eluded to the sequel being a retelling of the monster's attack from a different perspective. The original monster attack on New York happened at night. This clip was made during the day.

Of course, if they were to go with a new monster attack on a different city, then the events in the clip would make sense.

What other clues do we have? Well, at the end of the clip we clearly see a street sign that says "Cloverfield." Can't get much from that.....though I doubt Abrams would put that in a clip. At the end we also see Japanese lettering and the English words 'RU THERE'. Can't get much outta that either. Abrams had Japanese connections to the original film in it's viral marketing.

So does his have anything to do with "Cloverfield 2"? ......um......I dunno.

  1. Fan-made... or at least I hope so.

    Nice use of the street sign though.

  2. Hey Ken,

    I'm pretty sure that this is just a fan vid. The moment the monster appears is unmistakably the close up head shot from Cloverfield.

    As for the Cloverfield sequel, I, personally, would rather sit through a lecture on Chernobyl earthworms by Dr. Nick Tatopoulos instead of seeing another J.J. Abrams film featuring Clovie.

  3. Well, the video is shot in Santa Monica. The clear giveaway was the Clovefield sign near the end of the trailer. There is a Cloverfield St in Santa Monica and it has the same design as all their street signs.
