Surprise! Cloverfield 2 Exists & It’s Coming In March!
Well done Bad Robot… Well done. It’s been nearly a decade since the first Cloverfield trailer broke the internet. Since then, fans have been begging for a follow up. In typical J.J Abrams ‘mystery box’ fashion, the Cloverfield sequel has been revealed! Not only that, 10 Cloverfield Lane arrives in less than three months!
This has to happen more often. The idea of surprise movie trailers that appear months before the film’s release is fascinating. It’s a marketing nightmare but it allows for such a high level of secrecy and it fuels curiosity around the world.
As for the trailer itself? It features John Goodman! That’s really all I needed to know. My only concern is the amount of screen time that will be devoted to that bunker. Is this a movie that takes 45-50 minutes to get out into the world of monsters? How much will we learn about the Cloverfield monster’s origin? Will this be a new type of monster? Are the original creature’s ‘parasite’ babies all grown up? WHEN will this story take place? Actually, that’s a big one. The worst case scenario is this movie takes place at the same time with the same monster. I doubt it but it is a concern nonetheless. A BIG positive is the lack of ‘found footage’. I’m glad they left that gimmick behind. It worked in one movie but we don’t need another handheld franchise. (No offence Hud… RIP)
LET THE SPECULATION BEGIN!
I loved everything about Cloverfield. I hope they can capture everything that made that film special in the sequel. Thankfully we don’t have to wait long for Cloverfield 2 AKA 10 Cloverfield Lane. The film arrives on March 11, 2016!
