I'll admit, I never saw Cloverfield.
I recall in the summer of 2007 when its surprise trailer hit and no one had a clue what the film was about other than it looked to be a monster movie in the vain of Godzilla with J.J. Abrams producing. A title was also never revealed, up until a few months before it's release in January 2008.
Fast forward eight years later to just a month ago, we got a surprise announcement trailer for a film again produced by J.J. Abrams, only this time the action looks to take place in a underground bunker with an old man (John Goodman) seemingly keeping a young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and man (John Gallagher Jr.) imprisoned. We soon learn though that they're merely being kept there for protection from what's outside. Its title was revealed as 10 Cloverfield Lane, an almost companion sequel to Cloverfield.
Last night during the mid-season premeire of The Walking Dead, Paramount debuted a new 60-second trailer for the film, showing us most footage we've already seen, along with a few new scenes of dialouge (with J.J. Abrams, he's never going to reveal more than he has to).
From all accounts, the film looks to be suspenseful, scary, well-acted, and of course, a complete mystery.
Take a look at the new preview above and comment on what you think.
10 Cloverfield Lane opens March 11th.
