While the world was focused on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams, Bad Robot, and Paramount were planning something. The surprise came mainly to those who saw 13 Hours opening weekend because they were treated with a trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, a horror\suspense film starring John Goodman that, according to Abrams himself, is a “blood sequel” to the 2008 film Cloverfield. The new movie, while not a direct sequel, may be connected and exist in the same universe as the original or it might simply be similar in tone and style, which is were the “blood sequel” comes into play. The IMDB page is light, showing no images or even a movie poster for 10 Cloverfield Lane, which is surprising since the film is slated for a March 11th release, meaning less than two months away. Additionally, the film’s cast is currently only three people, John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (The Thing (2011), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), and John Gallagher Jr. (Jonah Hex). 10 Cloverfield Lane is directed by Dan Trachtenberg, marking his feature film directorial debut.
We’ve got the trailer below and as you can see for yourself, much is left to explain and understand about this quickly upcoming horror film but IMDB takes a stab at it with their synopsis:
Waking up from a car accident, a young woman finds herself in the basement of a man who says he’s saved her life from a chemical attack that has left the outside uninhabitable.
Sounds mysterious to be sure.
Check out the trailer below!

Oh and “I Think We’re Alone Now” is just a fantastic, creepy song to put in that trailer. I think it sold it for me.
