The new Cloverfield trailer is ace
Do you remember the film Cloverfield? Y’know, that JJ Abrams-produced, ‘found footage’ monster drama that wasn’t really found footage, but proved that an enticing viral marketing campaign can take a film a long way.
Well, it looks like Abrams has created a sequel on the sly, releasing a cryptic trailer that does a good job of reawakening the sense of anticipation that came with the original batch of Cloverfield marketing.
Titled 10 Cloverfield Lane and set for release on 11 March, the trailer reveals little beyond John Goodman being John Goodman in an underground bunker and the sense that something not very nice is lurking outside.
While not exactly a classic, the first film did a good job of creating a lingering sense of tension and dread and if director Dan Trachtenberg can eradicate some of the tired Godzilla-esque tropes from the original story, this could be a decent under the radar watch for 2016.
