Without much warning, Dan Trachtenberg and J.J. Abrams's sequel to Cloverfield, has taken the world by storm. As the followup to the 2008 found-footage monster film, most of what we know about 10 Cloverfield Lane has been pieced together by mysterious tidbits of marketing and this loose plot line:
After surviving a car accident, a young woman wakes up 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 worldwide chemical attack has left Earth’s surface uninhabitable. Uncertain what to believe, she decides she must escape, no matter what dangers she may face outside.
Even with the official plot, there is a lot we still don't know. For instance, does this actually have anything to do with the first Cloverfield?
After yesterday's Super Bowl TV spot, everyone seems to know a little more of what to expect, and we're loving it. Check out the second official trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane here:
Getting close and comfortable
As of now, 10 Cloverfield Lane only lists Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, and John Gallagher Jr. as the cast. If the trailer above is any indication, the movie will focus a lot more on the first two names.
A tight squeeze
Whether or not John Goodman's character is well-intentioned and there actually is an attack, Mary Elizabeth Winstead seems pretty keen to escape. With a tagline like "Monsters come in many forms," we don't really know where the threat is coming from.
Things are going to get wild
Cloverfield may have dropped the found footage angle, but it looks like it will be just as epic as its predecessor.
We still don't know the exact premise of the movie and how much it connects to Cloverfield, but I'm pretty eager to find out. Who doesn't love a bit of mystery?
'10 Cloverfield Lane' is expected to land in theaters on March 11, 2016.
