  • 6 Ways The Cloverfield Paradox Connects the Cloverfield Movies

Word of the original Cloverfield was released through an untitled trailer while 10 Cloverfield Lane relied instead on viral marketing and revealed very little details on how it's connected to the handheld surprise original hit.

It came as a massive surprise in the middle of the Super Bowl.

The first trailer for the highly-anticipated "Cloverfield" sequel has finally arrived during the Super Bowl.

The Cloverfield Paradox was previously supposed to get a theatrical release through Paramount, but along with Natalie Portman's Annihilation, it was unloaded by the studio and sold to Netflix. The streaming giant made a decision to give it some shock value by revealing a teaser during the game and launching the film before the Philadelphia Eagles could say "we're going to Disney World!"

Director Ava DuVernay took to Twitter earlier in the night to tease the announcement from Netflix. Alas, the actual movie, directed by newcomer Julius Onah with Abrams producing, is more enthusiastic fumble than the touchdown fans of the previous films will have hoped for.




The Cloverfield Paradox stars Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Bruhl, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Chris O'Dowd, Zhang Ziyi and David Oyelowo.

Most followers of the monster movie franchise, produced by J.J. Abrams and Lindsey Weber, knew that The God Particle was secretly a Cloverfield film. While there are a few critics that seemed to legitimately enjoy the movie, regardless of its flaws, the vast majority of those that took in the movie after the big game seem to view it as a miss.

This is the first time a movie production of this scale launched with such promptness. After two movies purporting to be a shared universe but not in the conventional manner, explanation was needed, and The Cloverfield Paradox offered up a satisfying answer that opens up the possibility of even more movies where pretty much anything goes.

The third Cloverfield movie will follow astronauts on a space station after a big science experiment apparently causes the Earth to disappear. In the meantime, The Cloverfield Paradox is streaming now.

Forbes: "At some moments, it feels like The Cloverfield Paradox can make the same case that Lost did all the time: sure, the plot doesn't make much sense, but it's really about the characters and their emotional journeys".
