After 8 years, “Cloverfield” will have a sequel to be released in theaters this March 11, 2016.
“10 Cloverfield Lane” had its trailer leaked online after it was paired with the movie “13 Hours.” It is directed by first-time director Dan Trachtenberg, and has a cast comprising of John Goodman, John Gallagher, Jr., and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The film was previously identified under the name “Valencia.”
The trailer shows that, unlike its predecessor, “10 Cloverfield Lane” will not be using a found footage style. The trailer doesn’t state much regarding the plot of the movie, other than that the characters appear to be living in an underground shelter, indicating a post-apocalyptic setting, and that Winstead’s character appears to be ignorant of why they’re living in the shelter.
As someone who’s gotten sick of how spoiler-filed trailers have gotten and how overexposed certain films get as they approach their release date, I’m very pleased with this approach by Bad Robot Productions. While it’s a huge risk since it’s been nearly a decade since the original film was released, shying away from revealing too much of the plot will very likely prove to be beneficial to the movie, as it could probably lead to greater word-of-mouth, and because of the general goodwill towards the original “Cloverfield.”
