Bad Robot Adds Six New Films

Get ready horror fans, it looks like Bad Robot has some interesting films in the work. Deadline is reporting that Bad Robot has locked in six new projects from rising filmmakers.

The other four films which seem non-horror related are The Seven Sisters of Scott County, Everything Must Go, Only the Lonely, and an untitled time hop film written by Ben Shiffrin. read more

‘The Cloverfield Paradox’: The Horror News Network Review

The Cloverfield Paradox premiered on Netflix almost immediately following its first trailer which aired during the Super Bowl. While the move was certainly unexpected, it makes sense that such an extreme shift in marketing and film distribution would be attempted by a franchise which all but founded counter-marketing strategies such as alternate reality games and MySpace profiles to promote 2008’s Cloverfield. Overall, when looking beyond the circumstances of The Cloverfield Paradox’s abrupt release, the movie offers up many new questions about the Clover-verse, and it ultimately lived up to my modest expectations for the film. read more

Cloverfield Spin-Off Officially Announced for October 2017

Deadline broke the somewhat confusing announcement that the film God Particle has been dropped from Paramount’s 2017 schedule and has been replaced with the title “New Cloverfield film”.

Rumors have persisted for quite sometime that God Particle was a film that took place in the Cloverfield Universe.  Whether God Particle was a direct sequel or a related story such as 10 Cloverfield Lane has not been determined to this day.  Bad Robot is famous for “the veil of secrecy” surrounding their projects, so this move  (and the lack of information about the film) is not surprising to anyone.  The only information anyone has to go on at this time is that the film will be directed by Julius Onah  and star David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ziyi Zhang, Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Brühl and Chris O’Dowd. Deadline reports that the film”focuses on a group of astronauts aboard an international space station who make a shocking discovery and must fight for their survival.”   read more
