Let’s face it; Cloverfield was fascinating, but there were tons of questions I had afterwards. Why all the “Slusho” stuff during Cloverfield‘s viral campaign? Why did the monster come up anyway? And what the hell happened afterwards? Well, we may get an answer to that last one at least, since Abrams’ 10 Cloverfield Lane is officially happening.
So, what’s 10 Cloverfield Lane about? As usual. Abrams is keeping the storyline on the DL, but actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead (The Thing) dropped a little knowledge on Collider, letting them know that the film was basically a post-apocalyptic story where her character wakes up in a “cellar” and is told the world has come to an end:
“He tells me that basically the world is over outside because there’s been a nuclear fall-out. It does have similarity to Faults, in some ways, because you don’t know who’s telling the truth or who to believe. There’s a lot of, who’s manipulating who, and all of that. Tonally, it’s very different, but it has some of those same themes.”

Love the use of “I Think We’re Alone Now”, especially the slowing of the record’s RPM as the trailer goes on. And I love seeing John Goodman in anything. Hopefully this film wil amp up the paranoia, and have a satisfying payoff. Hell, as with the last one, I’m in.
Check it out for yourself. Is it a sequel, or just another hat-tip from Abrams to his old Bad Robot digs? 10 Cloverfield Lane is scheduled to hit theaters March 11th, 2016. Better get your bomb shelter ready now. Y’know, just in case.
