1-18-08pt2.gifI took a step back from the Cloverfield stuff for the weekend so I don’t know how long it’s been up, but if you head over to 1-18-08.com you can see that there is now a new photo to look at. This one looks like it was taken from the party scene from that the trailer. The timestamp on the photo indicates it took place roughly thirty minutes before the previous photo. The plot just keeps thickening.

While we’re on the subject, there is a lot of discussion going on over at ethanhaaswaswrong. There have been many cryptic messaged being posted and one user has put in a lot of time and effort to translate it. LiveJournal user, never-evil, has the translation here.

Here’s a snippet:
Clearly there are some among you who know the truth and may even be worthy of the Mezin, who have strength of mind and will to see what trial awaits and are not distracted…

Let me know if anyone finds anything else.

Viral Marketing In Full Force For ‘Cloverfield’

July 5, 2007

sphere.gifAlright, so within the past couple of weeks, we’ve found out about J.J. Abrams super secret project, Cloverfield. We know who is writing, directing, and today we get a teaser website. Well that was just the beginning.

Brendon at film ick has has gotten word about a new blog, actually a blog and then another site with some games, that are some how associated with the film, which could be called 1-18-08. The first site is a blog called EthanHaasWasWrong that looks to mainly tell us that someone named Ethan Haas was wrong and the people still believing him are fools. From that blog we find a link to EthanHaasWasRight which flash based site and once loaded will show a sort of sphere shape. I’m going to tell you how to get past the first part now, so if you don’t want to know how stop reading. I’m sure you can figure it out either way.

If you watch carefully, different symbols popup in a specific order. Basically you just click them in that same order and you’ll open up a grainy video. In said video is a guy named Van and he is trying to make sure we’re the type of people he’s looking for to help him. After the video another game comes up, which I’ve yet to figure out. I do know there is a star in the top right and if you hover over it you get some kind of alien alphabet. Let me know if you figure anymore out and I’ll keep you posted on all the latest.
