The Department of Defense has located an 85-minute long digital video from the area formerly known as Central Park. The tape contains footage of a group of friends celebrating at a going-away party for Rob (Michael David-Stahl), who is moving to Japan. As the night progresses, a violent shaking is felt, followed by explosions in the street. The friends evacuate the building and find that the Statue of Liberty's head has been severed and hurled across Manhattan by a massive and terrible creature.
A promotional campaign promising audiences something mysterious proved highly successful, as Cloverfield ultimately drew $170 million at the box office, far exceeding its modest $25 million budget.
