This trailer is for 10 Cloverfield Lane. Is it a sequel? Abrams describes it as a blood relative of Cloverfield. It looks tense.
Actress Mary Elizabeth, who stars alongside John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr, gave Collider some insight into what her character was told;
“He tells me that basically the world is over outside because there’s been a nuclear fall-out. It does have similarity to Faults, in some ways, because you don’t know who’s telling the truth or who to believe. There’s a lot of, who’s manipulating who, and all of that. Tonally, it’s very different, but it has some of those same themes.”
Nuclear fall-out? Would that explain the fresh rumbles we see in the trailer, when the shaking above causes dust to fall back down into the shelter? Or is this a post-Cloverfield world where the land above is full of monsters? Or did mankind try the nuclear response to the original Cloverfield attack?
