First Trailer for Dan Trachtenberg's Mysterious '10 Cloverfield Lane'
"Don't open that door!!" Paramount has debuted a mysterious new trailer for a film called 10 Cloverfield Lane, which they're marketing like it has a connection to Cloverfield. J.J. Abrams produced this movie, originally called Valencia, and claims it is a "blood-relative" of Cloverfield even though the footage lines up with exactly what we've been writing about for years. Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as a woman who ends up locked in an underground bunker with John Goodman and one other. The rest of the story is pretty standard, as it becomes the question of, is it really that bad out there? I believe the entire Cloverfield angle is a marketing gimmick to get us all talking about the mystery of what's going on, but nothing more.
Here's the first trailer for Dan Trachtenberg's 10 Cloverfield Lane, direct from Paramount's YouTube:
The original description for Valencia: "The majority of the movie takes place in an underground cellar, and revolves around a young woman who wakes up in the cellar after a severe car accident and fears she has been abducted. Her captor, a doomsday prepper, tells her he saved her life and that there has been a terrible chemical attack that has left the outside uninhabitable. She does not know what to believe and as tensions rise, she decides she must escape, regardless of the terrors that await outside." 10 Cloverfield Lane, formerly known as Valencia, is the feature directing debut of Dan Trachtenberg, who made the Portal: No Escape short previously. The screenplay is by Josh Campell & Matt Stuecken and Damien Chazelle (of Whiplash). Paramount will release Trachtenberg's 10 Cloverfield Lane in theaters starting March 11th. Thoughts?
