The first look at Cloverfield Paradox aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday night, and in a huge surprise announcement, Netflix will premiere the film on their streaming service tonight after the Big Game!
After being delayed multiple times, the film continues the vague and strange marketing campaign that the Cloverfield films are largely known for. Even finding out who will distribute the film was a mystery. But Netflix is no stranger to releasing big teasers on Super Bowl Sunday. They started to practice that last year with Stranger Things 2, and look how successful that turned out to be.
Now the teaser offers a tiny sneak peek into J.J. Abram’s latest mystery box, and it is just as cryptic and strange as the last two. Check out the first look at Cloverfield Paradox here below.
Remember these film’s aren’t exactly sequels, but rather films that are associated with previous Cloverfield films. While the first two were set on Earth, Cloverfield Paradox takes the franchise into deep space, where astronauts will encounter an alien force unlike anything they’ve ever seen.
Directed by Julius Onah, Cloverfield Paradox stars Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Bruhl, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Chris O’Dowd, Ziyi Zhang, and David Oyelowo. It was originally scheduled to open in theaters on April 20, but as we just found out, it will be on Netflix later tonight!
In the near future, a group of international astronauts on a space station are working to solve a massive energy crisis on Earth. The experimental technology aboard the station has an unexpected result, leaving the team isolated and fighting for their survival.
Ten years ago, some thing arrived. Today, we know know why. THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX premieres on Netflix tonight after the big game.
