Surprise! Paramount Pictures just released a trailer for what appears to be the sequel to a notoriously divisive movie from 2008. That movie is Cloverfield.
The new trailer for a movie called 10 Cloverfield Lane was released last night, and many people were stunned. Very few even knew that a sequel to Cloverfield was being developed, as it was previously titled The Cellar and then Valencia.
"The idea came up a long time ago during production," one of the film's producers, J.J. Abrams, said in a Paramount statement. "We wanted to make it a blood relative of 'Cloverfield.' The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible."
10 Cloverfield Lane stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher, Jr.--the only three actors featured in the teaser trailer. The trailer gives an air of mystery, with all three locked away in an underground cellar. But when Winstead's character attempts to escape, Goodman's character pleads that she's going to get them all killed. Winstead's character then reacts in fright to what she's seeing outside.
Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter to the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane:
Cloverfield 2 is a middle finger to the studios who announce their films through 2021. "We made Cloverfield 2 and it comes out in 2 months"

Still think people are being premature calling it CLOVERFIELD 2. I think it's going to turn out to be something a little different than that
