there was a new mysterious trailer from Bad Robot in front of 13 Hours for a film called "10 Cloverfield Lane". Apparently it stars John Goodman.
Anyone here see it that can give us a better description?
We subsequently reached out to Paramount Pictures for comment, who provided Collider with this exclusive statement from J.J. Abrams himself:
“The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”
JEW JEW YOU BRILLIANT BASTARD
It's a movie where Goodman plays a nutjob that is holding MEW hostage in a bunker and tells her that the outside world is uninhabitable and she doesn't know what to believe. I read the original script a couple years ago. It's like the first five minutes of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Spooky Edition. I have no idea what they changed from the original script but it definitely doesn't have anything to do with Cloverfield unless they are tying in what the monster did as the disaster that did or possibly didn't happen outside.
I'm so fucking excited.
From everything I've found online, basically it's like 25-35 seconds long and just has the Bad Robot logo, then John Goodman in an arcade, then a loud earthquaky noise, and then Goodman yells "It's coming!"
And then it just says 10 Cloverfield Lane.
No further info, no release date. No IMDb page, nothing from Bad Robot, nothing from Abrams.
Fuck this is turning me on.
It came out on my 17th birthday and the viral marketing was insane, of course I liked it.
>Made back 7 times its budget
Yeah, bro. we're all just pretending. Nobody liked it when it was released.
This shit tee bee aich, I was 15 when the huge ARG came out, and I remember spending hours on movie forums trying to figure it out.
That was actually how I learned about lovecraft and shit.
>mfw judging by the trailer this wasn't a lie
Someone on 4chan not full of shit, that's a first.
>this will mean another huge mysterious viral marketing campaign
So it's a movie that also takes place in a bunker, stars the same three people, and the things that happen in the trailer for this movie also happen in that movie?
If it doesn't take place after the bombing raids at the end of Cloverfield and add something to the creature's story then it will officially be one of the worst bait and switches in Hollywood history.
>Buy a script and rewrite a little bit of the end of it shoehorning some monster in from a previous movie you made to accumulate mass shekels
BRAVO JEW JEW, BRAVO.
No seriously, bravo, that's fucking brilliant. Top Jew.
What a pleb cuck.
Huh, so it's being directed by the guy who made that one awesome Portal short. Damn, they're bringing 'em in straight from the internet these days.
Y tho... I mean, thank Hod they're ditching the POV thing, but cloverfield was terrible... And it's been 8 YEARS
I remember all the hype and marketing from the first Cloverfield film, all those warning signs outside of cinemas on the day of release about how it would cause nausea and everyone assuming Clover was some kind of massive Lion because someone yelled in the trailer "It's a lion! It's huge!"
Definitely one of my fondest 00s memories on the internet. Then I saw the actual movie and it was just average.
Damn dude what the fuck happened?
I won't be able to sleep until I know what the fuck is going on.
>yfw it was purgatory all along
That was some great marketing.
Remember this? I wish the monster had looked like this.
it seems like what happened was:
completely unrelated movie about people in a bunker protected from a natural disaster is being developed
this is happening while Bad RObot is doing Star Wars, so security is locked down tight
at some point they decide to make the bunker movie set in the same world as Cloverfield, and turn the natural disaster into the Cloverfield events
keep the same title for shooting, no re-occuring cast members, different style of movie (not found footage) and people have even read the original, non-Cloverfield script so no-one ever connects the two
It's got Cloverfield in the fucking title, at the very least it'll be a spiritual sequel.
Also, he did it (and in effect fooled retards like myself) by naming it something completely different. I thought it actually was gonna be called Valencia/The Cellar, didn't think it would have ties to Cloverfield at all.
And I DEFINITELY didn't see it coming out in less than fucking two months.
what $5 million budget movies are shown in imax?
According to Bloody Disgusting, Mary Elizabeth Winstead said that John Goodman's character tells her "that basically the world is over outside because there’s been a nuclear fall-out."
So it sounds like it could be set after the Hammer Down Protocol at the end of Cloverfield.
>we date things the right way, the way American God intended, here in America
Fixed that for you.
>that post credits scene from the first one showing the satellite faintly falling into the ocean waking the creature up
>that speech that's revealed to be "it's alive" when it's played backwards
As average as the movie was, they knew they'd have an obsessive fanbase. Remember all that Slusho shit and how it kept mentioning Japan?
And remember that prequel manga where they revealed all this stupid shit about these monsters having telepathic abilities with humans and it was absolutely nothing like the movie in any way, shape or form despite them taking place in the same universe?
Yeah, if the bunker is on Long Island or Upstate it would be nuke fallout territory. Maybe the things roaming around making the ground shake are the grown up things that were falling off Clovie.
I remember somewhere it being mentioned that the monster you see in the first movie is literally a newborn baby lashing out, and the thing's already bigger than some incarnations of Godzilla out of the womb.
So how fucking big is an adult? Like 10 miles tall?
Those things were just barnacles, there's no reason to believe they would get any bigger, or much bigger.
Also the filmmakers confirmed when the movie came out that the monster was a baby. So it could be grown now, or there could be more.
Abrams himself called it the "blood relative" to Cloverfield.
>“The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”
no one knows
the original script for this involved a natural disaster
the best guess is that the 'natural disaster' has been changed to what happened to the world after the events of Cloverfield
>tfw that's how this movie ends and the last half hour of it is John Goodman straight up hardcore XXX pounding MEW's pussy with his thick meaty dong as his fat slaps her body and she sobs and dry heaves
You'd think the American government (and every other world government for that matter) might have gotten a heads up that these things are a species and are impervious to fucking carpet bombings AS BABIES. I mean I know the Japanese are an insular people, but Christ.
rate my reddit-tier theory
>movie was originally meant to be an original thriller horror flick
>goodman's character was originally meant to be a villain kidnapping people and tricking them into think they're being quarantined
>the studio and JJ knew it would bomb
>"hey how about we use cloverfield to help it sell better, we can keep 90% of the movie but just change the ending"
>the audience is tricked into believing goodman's character is lying, and the world outside is just fine
>protags kill goodman's character
>open the door to the outside world
>cloverfield monster babbies everywhere
>movie was pretty much a 2 hour long trailer for cloverfield 2
This is more or less what's going to happen. The extended post-production time and lack of marketing suggest the studio thinks they have a bomb on their hands and are trying a last-ditch effort to get asses in seats with a giant bait and switch.
>Cloverfield cinematic universe
What the hell could they do? They've already got tonnes of potential ideas for sequels, like those other people on the bridge with a camera, maybe something from the government or military's perspective.
sounds plausible i guess
fwiw, are there any already existing movies where the ending twist is that the movie takes place in same universe as some other movie?
sounds like something someone must've done already but i can't think of any
>give me a cloverfield cinematic universe for all i care,
Why do I actually like this idea?
>could follow individual people during any time period during the disaster, maybe before it, or even in the aftermath
>characters could cross paths at certain points
>would make a great miniseries
I can see this happening, but wouldn't it make more sense to change the script and tone BEFORE the shooting takes place? That's what makes this weird, and considering how filming took place literally in 3 months if they had to do reshoots to add Cover in it that wouldn't have taken them more than 2 months. Another 3 tops. In that case, it still doesn't make sense that it was released until this year.
It's so fucking weird.
It's fucked how Cloverfield is the only kaiju flick that's awe inspiring. Unlike Memezilla vs King Kong: Autist Teleporting Army Man 2 this shit gives me hope we'll get more awe inspiring kaiju movies where you shit your pants seeing some alien creatures fucking people's day.
What conceivable reason would you have going outside? I don't care how bad it might be living with John Goodman, I don't care if he's scarier and eats more than the monsters, do not fucking go outside you stupid cunt.
OVER THE LINE
This monster is a fucking amature dude
I really liked cloverfield and still like it
shaky camera didn't bother me because I'm not a little faggot
the only part that bothered me was the very end, with the monster movies silently and the rest of the "fucking really?" moments
this is an interview from March of last year where MEW says she was shown the trailer for it
they've held on to this for a while
She also says about the movie: "As it goes on, it gets progressively darker and darker, and less and less funny, and weirder”
I just saw the trailer! As someone who freakin' loved the viral marketing for Cloverfield, I am so excited!!!!
J J A B R A M S
>conspiracy theorists from all over the world collectively try to expose wtf actually happened and why clovie was there, but they find out that no one actually knows, and the whole CCU is just a deep spiral of not knowing wtf is happening
I hope she keeps her shoes off or gets sweaty in this one
Nothing much really, it's just very suspenseful because you don't know who to believe and then you find out who was telling the truth the whole time. What happens after that is where I'm guessing they added the Cloverfield tie in. I have no idea about the third guy because he wasn't in it, he's a totally new addition.
i think the 3rd person is a huge mistake
the tension would be much higher if it was just MEW and Goodman
also MEW and the new guy clearly (based on trailer) agree that Goodman is bit nuts
MEW having another person that sympathizes with her makes the situation much less terrifying
Is it a short enough script to warrant a tie-in after that point?
Also just watched the trailer again, and I noticed Goodman says "They're going to get out". Was that in the script?
Not from just one nuke. Maybe for a couple of days, but not for any extended period of time. Fallout isn't that bad.
Anyway, I'm guessing it will have a bunch of cloverfield monsters, plus those gay parasite baby godzilla monsters, plus that stupid disease that made people explode for no reason.
The original Cloverfield was a mess.
There was definitely some fat you could trim to make it about a 60 minute story on film. As for that line being in it or not I honestly can't remember for sure, but I don't think it was.
Why is that motherfuckers arm broken? Broken arms heal in what 6 weeks? That's way too short of a timespan for him to have gotten it during the events of the first film before going into the bunker and her to have gotten suicidally bored of the bunker enough to want to leave it after all hell breaks loose.
For that matter she seems to have not trust Goodmans character that hell even did break loose and want to leave the safety to see if he is bullshitting.
What does it mean?
>After a car accident, a young woman comes to in an underground cellar, where most of the action takes place. She fears she has been abducted by a survivalist, who tells her he saved her life and that a chemical attack has left the outside world uninhabitable. Uncertain what to believe, she decides she must escape, whatever dangers she may face outside.
>most of the action
Seems to be the case. Don't get me wrong it's an effective framing device, but unless it's super short like the first Cloverfield, I'm not sure how much I could take of John Goodman just looking into MEW's eyes and saying "muh family" before she hits him with a wine bottle, runs outside and gets gobbled by one of the parasite things.
And to think I was going to make a "What's next for her career" thread just a few minutes ago
>"I saw it! It's a lion, it's huge!"
>mfw people thought it was going to be a Voltron movie.
By the looks of this movie? Gaining weight.
>movie about a few people in a bunker
>CHILDREN BEHAAAAAAAAAAVE starts playing
Cloverfield was made good by Reeves and Goddard, who then proved their talent by making better movies. I dunno how Jew Jew will fare without them, Super 8 was a piece of crap. So was Star Cucks btw :^)
So judging by this reaction, I can only imagine that she obviously sees something outside (I'm gonna guess destruction, I don't think they'd blow the monster load that early) that stops her from opening the door at the last second.
SO, I don't think the movie is gonna deal with her getting them killed by opening the door. Hopefully she just slinks back indoors, realizes what a naughty girl she's been and the movie can close without anyone dying.
You guys what if 10 cloverfield lane is the street address that this bunker is on and the original tape/recording that is cloverfield ends up or has ended up in the hands of one of these characters and eventually when the military gets a hold of it it's like "the cloverfield tape" or whatever and this movie takes place after cloverfield but before anyone else has seen the recording. Maybe I'm just high though
I thought it was pretty good, but I was also the target demographic for the film who got caught up in the pre-release fervor so I'm not sure my opinion is all too valuable. I also haven't rewatched it since.
But it turned out to be a nice alien, flew away, and everybody learned a lesson about coping with loss. Unless Cloverfield is it immediately crashing in the Atlantic, getting pissed off again, and getting really big.
Y'know, I always thought the MUTOs from Godzilla 2014 looked like the Cloverfield Monster. I like to think Clover was just a MUTO scout, and that the leaders came down to fuck shit up in Sam Francisco.
Ironically, the first Kaiju attack in Pacific Rim was also in San Francisco. Giant monsters hate the gays I guess.
>tfw my newly ex gf is a sarcastic 10/10 dark haired woman
just fuck my life up familia
I do agree that the title of the first movie and the street address/title of this movie have something in common. And it being a bomb shelter...things can survive down there...like tapes.
>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.
im thinking it going to be like the village.
everything is fine outside and he kept them in there for some sick reason
Yes I can see Jew Jew screwing us all yet again and not a single monster is present in the film and the only connection is a time jump and that is where the tape gets found and the military name the tape after the street.
>movie was always planned to be Cloverfield flick
>plan was to pull a MGSV and show trailers for "Valencia" with hints at something more and some ARG to go along with it, then later on the line reveal that it's actually Cloverfield 2
>realized that 2015 was the year they were putting out Mission Impossible and Star Wars and that the film would get lost in the shuffle
>said "fuck it" and decided on a surprise reveal shortly before release and right after Star Wars hype started dying down
So do you think the monster took over the world or something?
I like to think it made like a nest in NYC and it's all abandoned and quarintined, humans stop the parasites from leaving and the monster just sticks around NYC because no one is bothering it.
>Uncertain what to believe, she decides she must escape, whatever dangers she may face outside. “As it goes on, it gets progressively darker and darker, and less and less funny, and weirder,” Winstead told the 'Collider' movie news website."
come on niggas. this is a clear the village plot twist
The only one I've gotten anything BUT an error on, is I went to
I don't know if that's a legitimate error or not (I've never seen it before) but I took the reference number and put it into the password. Just took me back to the main page with a different URL
There's without a doubt more than one monster, because the Cloverfield Kishin prequel has a different monster than the one that attacks New York.
The thing is it was a shit manga and I think its very existence ludicrously fucks with the fairly grounded "based in reality" tone the movie tries to go for, but it's still unfortunately canon.
I think they nuked the area and forced people to live in bomb shelters. They would know if there were monsters walking around on the surface, the trailer hints at another giant monster I believe
Fuck yeah I remember doing that shit. Almost sent in a slusho video for the contest, too. I got so hyped when one of the websites got updated. Some dude went missing on an oil rig or something like that.
I explained it to my roommates, and they thought I was retarded.
> ignoring the other two points that prove you wrong
I remember looking at the crazy threads on all the theories on what the monster would look like.
I especially liked that people saw the monster in the poster.
Even if the movie wasn't up to snuff, that viral campaign was the greatest.
Hmm, it is possible this got turned into a Cloverfield sequel late into production. Check this shit:
Valencia/The Cellar was initially a Paramount Insurge film. Insurge is reversed for films with budgets $5 million or less that they plan on getting a high return on after the success of Paranormal Activity and its ilk. Looks like that backfired and at the time of the closure of Insurge, Valencia was in limbo.
This was nearly a year ago, giving them plenty of time to shoot additional material. I mean, the movie's coming out in IMAX. There's no way the entire film is just that cellar.
I dunno. She's looking pretty good to me.
>that viral campaign was the greatest
Agreed. Hopefully, this movie can deliver the goods along with a great viral campaign
>tfw JJ will focus on a Cloverfield mythology since he doesn't work on SW anymore
Guys, I think "#" is the first part of the password. Everything else kicks you to the error screen. Typing in random stuff with a # in front takes you to the home screen, I'm sure with the right password it will take you somewhere else.
Could be totally wrong though
There's gonna be 10 cloverfield monsters, and they all live in houses on the lane
The reason the characters are stuck in a bunker is because they are meant to repopulate the human race for the monsters to have food
Mark my words
>Bunker is under a ruined NYC filled with Clover and a bunch of parasites
>John Goodman's character's family died in the initial attack
>He uses the bunker to rebuild with a new family in NYC
>End is her leaving the bunker, exploring for a little bit before Clover eats her
>that viral campaign was the greatest
I love this poster. It tells you exactly what's going to happen and absolutely nothing at the same time.
Man, back then those marketers actually put effort in their campaign.
Now all they do is create crappy trailers with dub-step and explosions. That or pay shills to rave about their movie
This is why I think the reveal won't be at the end, but at the end of the first act. Then you have a movie about being stuck with a crazy man while surrounded with monsters. which sounds way cooler.
Oh boy, I sure hope
another cute girl blows up like a balloon and explodes
>That Wikipedia page
>John Goodman Productions
>Everyone gets hyped for Cloverfield and the ARG
>Cloverfield releases and is pretty good
>10 years pass with no news of anything

Let's get this turkey in the oven.
What's reflected in her eyes /tv/?
ok, so by what im looking here whats outside is a cornfield?
all that time wasted. I was in like some PC101 class in High School. We did a typing section that I completed in a few days. I'd spend all class on imbd forums reading up info reading all the theory talks. I remember the voltron shitposting (its a lion!), the people thinking its just a remake of escape from new york. The "leaked" pictures and the cool looking whale monster.
It all just came tumbling down, I ended up seeing the movie three times. There had to be more, I needed closure. I can't do it again, I cant be hurt again like what Cloverfield did to me.
the satillie crashing caused the creature to awaken. and since it was only a child, it panicked, destroyed the nearby oil platform, then somehow made its way to NYC [probably in a panicked state]
