Surprise, A New Cloverfield Movie Is Coming To Netflix Tonight

But in the early hours of this morning Netflix answered their prayers and delivered the long-awaited third film in the Sci-fi franchise produced by JJ Abrams, despite being rumoured for an April release on the streaming service. That's not too surprising for a movie that was given up on by Paramount and released in the middle of the night, but at least director Julius Onah's work was able to see the light of day.

But unlike the Philly Special that got the Super Bowl-champion Eagles into the end zone just before halftime, this trick fell flat.

Netflix has released the poster for the horror sci-fi mystery drama, 'The Cloverfiled Paradox'.

About that 30-second trailer: Indiewire critic David Erlich had this to say on Twitter about Netflix's move: It "makes no sense why they went with the coy "coming very soon" thing instead of IT'S F--ING DROPPING TONIGHT GET READY A-HOLES".

This changes everything. Netflix has announced that the next Cloverfield movie, titled The Cloverfield Paradox, will be available for streaming tonight. It follows 2008's Cloverfield and 2016's 10 Cloverfield Lane.


It's hard to get into the meta-narrative without spoiling too much (and, since I'm writing this review about two hours after the film suddenly appeared on Netflix, I'm hesitant to give anything away).

Netflix has not said how much it paid to acquire streaming rights for The Cloverfield Paradox, so as always, it will be hard to judge whether or not the streaming giant's purchase was a prudent one. In The Cloverfield Paradox, Grunberg provides the voice of Joe, an off screen NASA contact who relays messages to the crew of the Cloverfield Space Station. The company recently forged ahead with a sequel for the fantasy thriller Bright despite the fact that the first movie (which Netflix paid a reported $90 million to acquire) similarly bombed with critics. It's this energy crisis that sets the plot of The Cloverfield Paradox in motion, sending a group of astronauts into space aboard the Cloverfield Space Station to fire off a particle accelerator.

The production of The Cloverfield Paradox has been full of speculation and controversy, from official title to its release date.

Critics seem to agree that Cloverfield Paradox's weakest points are its characters and its story, with some calling it an bad mess all around.
