Social media has been touting this as the "sequel to Cloverfield", since the faux-bootleg-styled trailer was released in surprise to some fanfare today - especially with folks still brmming with excitement over producer J.J. Abrams' "The Force Awakens"! The movie description found on Wikipedia however, might put a slight damper on the excitement somewhat…
WHAT-IS: "10 Cloverfield Lane, originally known as The Cellar and Valencia, is an upcoming American thriller film directed by Dan Trachtenberg and written by Josh Campbell and Matthew Stuecken. The film is described as a "blood relative" to the 2008 film Cloverfield. It stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman and John Gallagher, Jr.. The film is set to be released on March 11, 2016." (Wiki)
Da'heck does "blood relative" mean? But for the lack of info currently I will refer to wikipedia for info source, while speculating this happens at the same time as situations unfold in the 2008 "Cloverfield" movie, with the monster ripping thru NYC … but that's just me, yeah? Essentially this looks like a "3 Men In A Room" psychological-thriller more than monster-pic, innit? Heh.
Will "10 CLOVERFIELD LANE" generate as much excitement over the 2008 film? TOYSREVIL sure had it's fair share of coverage then hahaha - but now tis time to hand the baton over to my sister-blog dedicated to feature films @ #PopcornX … if indeed it is news and interest worthy … and as long as there be giant monsters, … and "monster toys"! hahahaha
