Surprise Trailer For ‘Cloverfield’ Sequel Released!

No one saw it coming, and maybe that’s point, but J.J. Abrams has pulled off one of the best surprises of all time!

A trailer, made to look like a bootleg, has been released for a film called 10 Cloverfield Lane starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Gallagher, Jr. and John Goodman. It IS an unannounced sequel to 2008’s found footage monster flick, Cloverfield, which was directed by Matt Reeves and written by Drew Goddard.

How’d they pull this off? In 2014, Bad Robot and Paramount announced that Dan Trachtenberg (Portal: No Escape) had been hired to direct a post-apocalyptic thriller titled Valencia (aka The Cellar). However, that was a secret title for Cloverfield 2.

“The idea came up a long time ago during production,” Paramount told Collider. “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.”

Check out the 10 Cloverfield Lane trailer in the video below and get ready to see in theaters March 11th.
