UPDATE: Cloverfield 3 will officially be available to stream on Netflix right after the Super Bowl. The film is officially titled The Cloverfield Paradox. You can watch the official Super Bowl spot here.
People have been curious to see what Cloverfield 3 would eventually blossom into. Originally titled God Particle, this new sci-fi thriller is now being reported to drop immediately after the Super Bowl.
If this were to happen, this marketing method is on par with the previous Cloverfield film’s marketing, 10 Cloverfield Lane, which had a surprise trailer drop before Michael Bay’s 13 Hours in early 2016. The film was then revealed to be hitting theaters in only two months.
However, Netflix could potentially accomplish something unprecedented here. With the possibility of dropping Cloverfield 3 after the Super Bowl, this could set a new standard to follow with the “Mystery Box” marketing campaigns that producers such as J.J. Abrams have constantly preached for.
In just a few hours, Super Bowl viewers nationwide and abroad could have the opportunity to stream the brand new Cloverfield movie in the comfort of their own homes thanks to Netflix.
Directed by Julius Onah, the film stars David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O’Dowd, Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Brühl, Zhang Ziyi, Aksel Hennie, and John Ortiz.
The Cloverfield Paradox will be available to stream on Netflix later tonight.
5 Superheroes That Deserve Their Own Video Game Universe
World building and universe building are not new. These writing techniques have been around for centuries, long before we even started writing our stories down. I always considered Beowulf to be the precursor to superheroes and comics. However, due to the overwhelming success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the CW DC Universe (or Arrowverse), it seems that the universal world building that has been in comics for three-quarters of a century has finally become a major storytelling point in both the film and TV worlds of superheroes.
Between Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy (Batman: Arkham Origins was developed by WB Games Montreal), Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Insomniac Games establishing that their Spider-Man game will be the anchor point for a new Spider-Man universe, and the announcement from earlier this year of a multi-year, multi-game deal between Marvel and developer/publisher Square Enix it seems like the video games will be the next place where sprawling superhero stories will be told.
