Here it is, ladies and gents, the trailer none of us had been waiting for – 10 Cloverfield Lane. Scroll down for all the details.
Like the kaiju-esque nasty from the original, the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane has well and truly arisen and taken the internet by storm.
Did we expect it? Not really.
Do we love it? Absolutely!
The clip starts with a trio of bored looking so-and-sos (Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman and John Gallagher, Jr.) playing games, listening to music and generally enjoying the every day comforts of suburban living … and that’s where the shit hits the fan. As the walls rumble, tensions rise and characters clash, it becomes apparent that all is not right with the world – but what exactly?
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been clamoring for a sequel to Cloverfield ever since it debuted eight years ago. Heck, I didn’t think we were going to get one until this bad boy reared its head. In a digital age where you have to go full on caveman to avoid Star Wars spoilers, that’s impressive. Returning producer J.J. Abrams has been quoted describing the film as a “blood relative” of the original. Speaking with Collider, he said:
The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.
Now this could mean pretty much anything, but seeing as though this has abandoned the found-footage gimmick, his remark would seem duly appropriate. This doesn’t feel like the same grainy monster mash that the first was, but there’s undoubtedly a similar pulse. We wouldn’t it to be too different now, would we?
Dan Trachtenberg takes hold of the reigns this time, directing a screenplay by Josh Campbell and Matt Stuecken. The movie will be released on March 11.
