    But yeah, thanks for sharing. I wasn't planning on sleeping tonight anyways.
    Actually, I take that back. some commenters on the web are saying that this might actually be fore Guillermo de Toro's Pacific Rim. Seeing that the movie already has a set date and is already being filmed, I think that sounds about right.

    Pacific Rim indeed makes sense. Whichever from the three still a very clever campaign.

    I'd rule out Godzilla simply because I don't see him showing up in all these places. Pacific Rim does seem to be a better fit since it will contain several monsters.

    And giant robots.

    After watching more of these videos, it turns out that the Russian video has actually been online since August. Many of the other videos have had the Russian video's sound pasted over their footage. August seems a tad early to start viral marketing a movie that's coming out summer of 2013. The recent explosion of "strange sound heard in X!!!!" videos might actually be a new fad that has nothing to do with Godzilla or Pacific Rim.

    Okay, it turns out this is all just some stupid hoax people on YouTube have been pulling ever since Red State came out, this guy pretty much sums it all up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDFNM86I2-U



    No Godzilla/Cloverfield 2/Pacific Rim viral marketing campaign here. Move along.

    David Oyelowo and Gugu Mbatha-Raw to Lead J.J. Abrams Sci-Fi Thriller ‘God Particle’
    Is this another 'Cloverfield' movie?


    From Vulture 06/11/2012
    J.J. Abrams's Bad Robot Orbiting God Particle at Paramount


    Quote Originally Posted by Claude Brodesser-Akner
    We hear that Paramount Pictures has picked up a script called God Particle for J.J. Abrams's Bad Robot to produce from Oren Uziel — the same screenwriter who penned the macabre zombies, vampires, and humans-versus-invading-aliens action-comedy The Kitchen Sink for Sony Pictures.


    A rep for the director declined comment, and while details are scant, the logline seems classic Abrams bait: After a physics experiment with a large hadron accelerator causes the Earth to seemingly vanish completely, the terrified crew of an orbiting American space station is left floating in the middle of now-even-more-empty space. When a European spacecraft appears on their radar, the Americans must determine whether it’s their salvation, or a harbinger of doom.


    Still, don’t let your heart beat too fast, for based on what else our spies tell us, it seems unlikely that Abrams would direct God Particle. Paramount’s plan is to shoot the whole film for under $5 million; that means it's likely to be released by its newfound Insurge Pictures micro-budget division, which launched in 2010. Of course, Paramount already knew a bit about wringing big profits from anorexic budgets before then: Its Paranormal Activity franchise has grossed $575 million worldwide from three films whose budgets, even when added all together, don’t even crack $9 million. (Naturally, a fourth is on the way.)


    Other studios have been quick to embrace the “nothing ventured, everything gained” model: This year's CBS Films Daniel Radcliffe thriller The Woman in Black, for example, was made for $13 million, but cost just $3 million to acquire and $14 million to market and distribute in the U.S. It went on to make $127 million worldwide. Likewise, Fox's Chronicle cost just $22 million to make and has grossed $126 million worldwide.


    But the first film released under the Insurge label, this year’s The Devil Inside, was a truly execrable piece of filmmaking whose only impressive achievement is that despite being made for $1 million, it went on to gross $101 million worldwide. (It is the rare film to receive a CinemaScore of F — almost none do — and even rarer for becoming a hit nonetheless.) Hopefully, the involvement of Abrams’s Bad Robot won’t just guarantee God Particle a ridiculous profit margin should it get made, but also ensure some sort of quality control.

    THR:
    Paramount Dates 'Cloverfield' Imax Film, Removes J.J. Abrams' 'God Particle' From Schedule
    The move implies that 'God Particle' is actually the next film in the 'Cloverfield' series.
    Quote Originally Posted by Ashley Lee

    Interestingly enough, God Particle — another film from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, which was previously set for a Feb. 24 release — was removed from the release schedule.


    The switch implies that God Particle is, in fact, the next title of the Cloverfield-connected universe. The same was done when the studio dated 2016's 10 Cloverfield Lane. Paramount did not respond to a request for comment on whether it's true this time as well.


    God Particle (or the new Cloverfield film?) stars David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O’Dowd, Daniel Bruhl, Zhang Ziyi and Elizabeth Debicki as crewmembers aboard a space station who find themselves alone after a scientific experiment causes Earth to disappear. When a space shuttle appears, the space station crew must determine if those aboard are friend or foe. Julius Onah is directing the movie.


    The new Cloverfield entry will open against Lionsgate's latest Saw installment.

    THR JANUARY 23, 2018:
    Netflix in Talks to Acquire 'Cloverfield' Sequel From Paramount
    Quote Originally Posted by Borys Kit

    Sources say it is unclear if a deal will be made, but if the ink does dry, it will come on the heels of Paramount’s December deal with Netflix in which it unloaded the new Alex Garland-directed movie, Annihilation, on the digital streamer, which picked up all international territories except domestic from the studio. Paramount was set to release God Particle on April 20.


    The culling of Paramount’s release slate is being spearheaded by chairman Jim Gianopulos, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. The exec took over the reins last spring, watching the movies he had inherited and making some hard choices.


    “He sat down and looked at what is theatrical, what is not in this day and age,” says one source. Certain movies were not making the cut.


    Paramount has produced and released two Cloverfield films to great profitability. The pics took unique perspectives on what were traditionally big-budget movies. Cloverfield, released in 2008 and directed by Matt Reeves, was a found-footage monster movie made for $25 million that grossed $80 domestically. 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) was a contained alien invasion movie that cost even less and made $72 million domestically.


    However, God Particle, which was also known as Cloverfield Station, seemed to eschew the model from the get-go. Its budget was in the $40 million-plus range, and its cast was more established, boasting David Oyelowo, Ziyi Zhang, Daniel Bruhl, Elizabeth Debicki and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.


    Sources say the movie needed some work, and while Abrams expressed an intent to get down to business in postproduction, it was too little, too late. Several sources suggested that Abrams’ attention may be taken up by his unexpected new assignment, the final installment of the Star Wars Skywalker episodes, which he signed on to in September after the firing of director Colin Trevorrow.


    Paramount had no comment. Calls to Abrams' reps were unreturned at press time.

    ‘Cloverfield 4’ is a WWII Thriller Called ‘Overlord’ and It’s Already Done Filming
    Quote Originally Posted by Ben Pearson
    Who could have predicted that 2008’s hand-held monster movie Cloverfield would spawn a franchise we’d still be talking about 10 years later? 2016’s surprise sort-of-sequel 10 Cloverfield Lane provided our first look at the anthology-like nature of this loose franchise umbrella, and while we wait to see a trailer for God Particle (now possibly titled Cloverfield Station) and learn when and how we’re actually going to see that movie, we have confirmation that Cloverfield 4 not only exists, but that it’s already completed filming. The project is called Overlord, and you can read all we know about it below.


    If the title Overlord sounds vaguely familiar to you, it’s because we wrote about it in March of last year. And while God Particle or Cloverfield Station or whatever the hell that ends up being called is reportedly set on a space station, Overlord is taking a trip back in time to World War II. Here’s the synopsis:


    On the eve of D-Day, American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success. But as they approach their target, they begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. They find themselves fighting against supernatural forces, part of a Nazi experiment.

    Overlord is directed by Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) and stars Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street) and Jovan Adepo (Fences). About a year ago, we speculated that this could be the fourth entry in the slowly-expanding “Clover-verse,” and after ScreenRant theorized about that same thing this morning, we’ve received confirmation from our sources that yes, Overlord is indeed Cloverfield 4, and that the project has completed production.


    It all lines up: God Particle started out as a separate project before word came out that it’s set in the Clover-verse, and Overlord followed the same path. They’re both produced by J.J. Abrams and directed by up-and-coming filmmakers (as were the original Cloverfield and 10 Cloverfield Lane), and all of the films so far have featured strong casts and high-concept science fiction stories.


    Previous conversations with 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg have taught us the events of that movie don’t take place on the same exact timeline as the events of the original film, but there seem to be some aspects that do cross over into the separate films’ alternate timelines. The most important of these is Tagruato, the company that continues to appear in viral marketing materials for the third Cloverfield movie. As I speculated last year in this detailed breakdown, I’m guessing there won’t be much in the way of direct connections to the Clover-verse in Overlord, but I’d put money on Tagruato being involved in some capacity with the Nazis’ supernatural schemes.


    God Particle/Cloverfield Station was scheduled to arrive in April 2018 (after multiple delays), but recent rumors indicate that Paramount may end up passing it on to Netflix. Box Office Mojo says Overlord will arrive in theaters on October 26, 2018. But this is Bad Robot we’re talking about, so I’m sure we haven’t seen the last mystery move for either of these films. As always, we’ll keep you in the loop when we hear something concrete.
