Fans of Cloverfield franchise was genuinely surprised following release of The Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix shortly after Super Bowl. Although the movie didn’t live up to expectations, Cloverfield 4 is set to be released later this year. Although details regarding the movie have been pretty scarce in recent months, J.J. Abrams revealed that the movie will be absolutely crazy.
Abram’s latest comments came during his recent interview with Digital Spy as he discussed why the studio decided to release The Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix. He said, “It didn’t really feel like it was any fun to release [The Cloverfield Paradox] with everybody knowing that it was coming. Could we possibly do this and keep it a secret and release the thing in the way we did? That felt to me like that’s the spirit of these movies, that’s the spirit of the series. So to talk about what the next one is and what’s going to happen sort of feels counter-intuitive. Overlord … first of all, it’s something that I can’t wait for you to see cause the director, Julius Avery, has done an amazing job on it. But the specifics, you know, we should wait and see. But that’s really a crazy movie.”
As you might already know, despite the high anticipation, The Cloverfield Paradox failed to impress fans and critics alike as the movie was heavily criticized unlike first two movies in the franchise. However, anticipations regarding the upcoming movie is still high. Moreover, with several high profile artists rumored to be part of Cloverfield 5, we will have to wait to find out if Cloverfield 4 manages to set the failure aside after its release later this year.
