    I read somewhere (don't remember where) that the monster was of course from the ocean and the reason it went to New York because of the Slusho drink and it supposedly liked it. From what I read the monster was just a baby monster, not realizing where he was at and all that and supposedly Rob was moving to Japan to become the Vice President for the company Tagruato (one of the ARs for the movie). I don't really remember what else there was, but if you were a real huge fan of Cloverfield and checked out the ARs, this would all make sense in a way.

    This explains it all, WARNING DOES CONTAIN MAJOR SPOILERS!

    From FilmJabber:

    Cloverfield, easily the most anticipated film of early 2008, did not disappoint on Friday, January 18th, as it earned a whopping $16.7 million on Friday. Other Friday estimates have it at $18.25, and I have to figure the disparity between the figures relates to the Thursday-night midnight showings.

    UPDATED: Here are the final box office weekend estimates for Cloverfield.

    Either way, the Friday grosses put Cloverfield in a position to earn approximately $45-$52 million over the weekend, an astounding feat considering that January is usually a month reserved for expanding Oscar-worthy films and the dreck studios want to dump. I havenít seen Cloverfield yet (UPDATED: read my Cloverfield movie review), but itís actually receiving pretty decent reviews - decent enough for a monster movie, anyway. The handheld camera approach is getting a bit of criticism, but it sounds like the movie entertains nonetheless.

    The $16-$18 million Friday gross for Cloverfield puts the J.J. Abrams movie in a nearly guaranteed position to set box office records for the most earned over a three-day weekend in January. On top of that, donít forget that Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is on Monday, which means that the movie is also poised to break records for the MLK holiday weekend. I have trouble considering it a holiday weekend since I have to work on Monday, but thatís another story.
    Nice. I figured the demographic, cost, etc., would make it highly profitable. Nice job JJ

    lol, I still don't see the splash for some reason, I see like a white object on the top right but nothing else. I even saw the movie twice in theaters and still didn't see it.

    Is "the splash" the one at the very far right edge? If so... meh, I saw it at the theater, but didn't think much of it - I thought it would be much more obvious...


    Thanks for the sig, gidget!

    Off the topic of easter eggs did this movie remind anyone of a much more badass "The Host"
