The Cloverfield Paradox

Sure everyone was surprised when Netflix released The Cloverfield Paradox just moments after Super Bowl LII. While the excitement for yet another Cloverfield could not be contained, the reviews that followed after critics watched the film were swift. Many said it was easy to see why Paramount may have dumped the film on over to Netflix, who reportedly paid up to $50 million dollars to distribute it.

Now we are getting a better picture of why the studio may have done that. However, it also appears that this will be a one-time thing as the studio has every intention to release the next film in the connected cinematic universe, Overlord, theatrically. More on the story below.

Release Date: January 4, 2018

One thing you have to appreciate about the Cloverfield franchise is that it is building its own mythology without the films’ actually knowing its a part of J.J. Abrams’ grand mystery box scheme. Cloverfield was a sci-fi romp that drew its found-footage inspiration from films like Blair Witch. 10 Cloverfield Lane was a more focused offering that was like a theatrical play set almost entirely in an underground bunker. And both are somehow loosely connected to each other without the characters of those films knowing it. However, Netflix surprised us all on Sunday night by releasing The Cloverfield Paradox, the latest installment of the Cloverfield franchise, this time set in space.

Unfortunately, the entire film is a disjointed mess that haphazardly throws in dated and familiar plot devices and twists for the sake of being “Cloverfield In Space.”
