Ten years after premiere of Cloverfield (monstrous, in Spain), film produced by screenwriter and director J. J. Abrams, Netflix has launched this Sunday by surprise Cloverfield Paradox, third installment of sci-fi saga. First of all, Netflix releasing the film immediately after the Super Bowl with no buildup is simply genius. In it, he makes the case for super-secretive storytelling-that the mystery is ever so much more enticing than anything you could actually see or experience in a film or a movie.
The surprise was announced during an ad in the first half of the game that promised it was “coming very soon”.
Late previous year, Paramount announced that the theatrical release of “The Cloverfield Paradox”, then known as “God Particle”, would be moving from this weekend to April 20, 2018.
DuVernay then confirmed the news on her Twitter feed.
On the one hand, Netflix buys projects by creators who are marginalized by traditional Hollywood.
Netflix surprised almost everyone by streaming the latest “Cloverfield” film directly after the game.
“Cloverfield” (2008) and “10 Cloverfield Lane” (2016) told two indirectly linked stories of a world besieged by giant beasts of unknown origin.
The series’ third film, The Cloverfield Paradox, at last answers some questions – while simultaneously calling off all the rules, opening up the possibility of infinite tales within a shared universe. Now, we can finally confirm that it’s The Cloverfield Paradox!
And as with most modern space films, the production design is quite attractive.
