- Rob Hawkins: My name is Robert Hawkins. It's 6:42 AM on Saturday, May 23rd. Approximately seven hours ago, some... thing attacked the city. I don't know what it is. If you found this tape, I mean if you're watching this right now, then you probably know more about it than I do. Whatever it is, it killed my brother Jason Hawkins, it killed my best friend Hudson Platt and Marlena Diamond, and many many others. We've crashed into Central Park and we've taken shelter underneath this bridge. The military has begun bombing the creature and we're caught in the middle. Okay, ready? [Rob turns camera to Beth] Rob Hawkins: It's okay. Beth McIntyre: I don't know what to say. Rob Hawkins: Just tell them who you are. Beth McIntyre: My name is Elizbeth McIntyre. I don't know why this is happening. And we're going to wait here until this passes.
Beth McIntyre: [sees monster] What is that? Hud: It's a terrible thing. [while trying to get to a flight of stairs, Rob encounters a parasite and kills it] Beth McIntyre: Oh my God! What is that? Hud: I don't know! Something else! Also terrible.
Hud: Ocean is big, dude. All I'm saying is a couple of years ago, they found a fish in Madagascar that they thought been extinct for centuries. Rob Hawkins: So what? It's been down there this whole time, and nobody noticed? Hud: Sure. Maybe it erupted from an ocean trench, you know? Or a crevasse. Crevice. It's just a theory. I mean, for all we know, it's from another planet and it flew here. Marlena Diamond: Like Superman? Hud: Yeah, exactly like... Wait. You know who Superman is? Marlena Diamond: Oh, my God. You know who Superman is? Hud: Okay, I'm not... Marlena Diamond: [sarcastically] I'm, like, feeling something. Are you aware of Garfield.
Hud: Okay, just to be clear here, our options are: die here, die in the tunnels, or die in the streets. That pretty much it? Rob Hawkins: Yeah... that's pretty much it.
Marlena Diamond: It's eating people.
- The first trailer for this movie played before Transformers (2007). It showed a giant explosion in the heart of New York City and the Statue of Liberty's head being thrown down a street. It was shot with a hand-held video recorder. There was no title.
Jason (Mike Vogel) can be seen wearing a Slusho! T-shirt throughout the movie. Slusho! is a drink from J.J. Abrams' show "Alias" (2001) as well as a codename of the film's, and the shirt is the only time the beverage is acknowledged during the movie, with far more information hinted about it on the Internet.
The film was shot in 34 days, in Los Angeles under the fake title "Slusho" and in New York under the fake title "Cheese". The Ferris wheel scene, the last in sequential order, was filmed on the first day. The scene inside Beth's parents' apartment, the first in sequential order, was filmed on the last day.
The title "Cloverfield"; initially just a codename for the movie, is named for the boulevard in Santa Monica where the Bad Robot offices were located during the making of the film.
The teaser trailer, as was planned, was shot before principal production began with digital cameras.
