Netflix had a surprise trailer for casual viewers during the Super Bowl, showing off the latest installment to the “Cloverfield” franchise titled “The Cloverfield Paradox”.
The official description for the secretive new movie reads, “In the near future, a group of international astronauts on a space station are working to solve a massive energy crisis on Earth. The experimental technology aboard the station has an unexpected result, leaving the team isolated and fighting for their survival.”
Netflix added a description on YouTube stating, “Ten years ago, some thing arrived. Today, we know know why.”
Even more surprising than the trailer was the release date. Netflix kept a lid on the new movie until Super Bowl Sunday, and the trailer announced that the movie would drop that same night. If you missed the trailer during the big game, or just want to re-watch it, you can find the official trailer below thanks to a quick upload from Netflix.
The new release should be a welcomed one for sci-fi fans, who seem split on Netflix’s recent release “Altered Carbon”. The recently released series is based on the classic cyberpunk noir novel by Richard K. Morgan, and is a story of “murder, love, sex, and betrayal” which is set more than 300 years in the future.
In that series, society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; and death is no longer permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned – on ice – for centuries until Laurens Bancroft, an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder … that of Bancroft himself.
