A proper big budget movie sequel is coming to 2008’s “Cloverfield” and we’re pretty excited about it. J.J. Abrams is set to produce along with Bad Robot head of film, Hannah Minghella. Paramount Pictures is also producing. Writing the script is Joe Barton(The Ritual, My Days of Mercy). According to the Hollywood Reporter’s sources the new film will not be in the found footage format like its predecessor.
In 2008 the J.J. Abrams produced “Cloverfield” became THE monster movie everyone was talking about. They used a viral campaign that really didn’t tell you much about what the film was about just that “something has found us.” It worked and the film grossed $40 million in the first weekend after only taking $25 million to make. It went on to make $172 million worldwide. It was one of the best in theater experiences that I’ve ever had because opening weekend, no one knew what to expect.
The film was done in the found footage format and followed 20-something New Yorkers as they try to navigate the city during an attack by a giant monster. They pulled this off very very well. It also launched the career of Matt Reeves who’s now working on “The Batman.”
“10 Cloverfield Lane” and “The Cloverfield Paradox”, released in 2016 and 2018 were also a part of the “Cloverfield Universe.” “10 Cloverfield Lane” was premiered on Netflix and did much better than “The Cloverfield Paradox” which was not accepted as well. All of these films were of the sci-fi genre and included monsters but never quite compared to the level of massive hit that “Cloverfield” attained.
We’re pretty excited about this new film coming out and if it’s anything like the first, we won’t hear much about it till after it comes out. Hopefully all very good things.
13 years after the original premiered another “Cloverfield” movie has been announced.
