Cloverfield Gets a Surprise Spinoff with 10 Cloverfield Lane; Watch the Trailer!


This weekend sees the release of 13 Hours, and though you may not be interested in the film, you will be interested to know that the trailer for the Bad Robot-produced 10 Cloverfield Lane is attached to Michael Bay’s latest. But what the hell is 10 Cloverfield Lane? We’ve got all the details!

A couple years back we reported on a movie titled Valencia, which was to be produced by J.J. Abrams and directed by Dan Trachtenberg. As it turns out, that movie’s actual (top secret) title was 10 Cloverfield Lane, and the bigger secret was that the film is connected to the 2008 monster movie.

As Abrams told Collider, it takes place in the same universe as Cloverfield.

The idea came up a long time ago during production,” said Abrams. “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.”

Whoa. How cool is that? Check out the trailer and poster art below!

10 Cloverfield Lane stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher, Jr.

Look for it in theaters on March 11, 2016.

Written by Josh Campbell, Matt Stuecken, and Damien Chazelle, the film was directed by Dan Trachtenberg.

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.
