In 2008, millions of people scared themselves sh*tless with Cloverfield, J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves‘ horror thriller about a mysterious creature that attacks a futuristic New York City during an otherwise jubilant night. The film grossed over $40 million in its opening weekend, setting the January opening weekend box office record, which Ice Cube and Kevin Hart would eventually break with 2014’s Ride Along. Still, for many years, fans of the movie clamored for a sequel, and one of the film’s screenwriters, Drew Goddard, teased it in 2012 in an interview, claiming he was just waiting on Reeves and Abrams’ schedules to free up.
Apparently, their schedules did free up. They just didn’t tell anyone. Out of nowhere this morning, an official poster and trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, the sequel to 2008’s Cloverfield, surfaced on the internet, sending fans into a frenzy. The trailer begins with a serene dinner setting featuring John Goodman (!!!), Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr., and continues into harrowing mayhem. Check it out above, and get ready to see the movie when it drops in March.
