I’m still trying to decipher how exactly this ties into the original Cloverfield.
This new trailer for the upcoming 10 Cloverfield Lane was released tonight and it provides a little more context to the events in the last trailer, but still fails to provide any real answers to what exactly is going on in the film. And that is totally fine by me.
Two months ago Paramount released a trailer for the previously unannounced thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane, directed by Dan Trachtenberg and starring Mary Elizabeth and John Goodman. The film acts as a pseudo sequel to the 2008 found footage Kaiju film Cloverfield. How exactly 10 Cloverfield Lane ties into the original is unknown, however producer of both films J.J. Abrams referred to 10 Cloverfield Lane as a “blood relative” to first film. Whether or not that means the Cloverfield monster will even show up in the new film remains a mystery.
Paramount is playing its marketing close to the chest, similarly to the original film. This trailer gave a little more insight into who the characters are and what their situation is, but other than that I know even less about this than I did the original Cloverfield, and that only excites me more.
