The Rotten Tomatoes Rating For The Cloverfield Paradox Is Abysmal

  • Surprise A New Cloverfield Movie Is Coming To Netflix Tonight Shannon Grixti

A commercial for the third Cloverfield movie, dubbed The Cloverfield Paradox, aired during the Super Bowl and announced that the film will premiere immediately following the game on Netflix. On the other hand, it's easy for films and TV shows to appear on Netflix and then sink without trace.

The Cloverfield Paradox is directed by Julius Onah (The Girl is in Trouble), with stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle, Beyond the Lights, A Wrinkle in Time) and David Oyelowo (Selma, Queen of Katwe) taking the top credits.

Filmmakers Ava DuVernay and Jordan Peele celebrated on Twitter the film's debut.

You might be surprised to learn that The Cloverfield Paradox is the third Cloverfield movie that fans have been hearing about. 10 Cloverfield Lane maintained tension by not leaving its core setting, but Paradox occasionally heads back to Earth. Joe also interacts (via phone) with a character named Michael, who is the husband one of the astronauts.

The train of thought takes a sinister turn as she then begins talking about how everything was a lie. Most striking, we get to see a little more of Samurai World and learn there are six parks in total.

Reviews have been generally underwhelming in the hours after the film started streaming.

It comes not long after it was revealed that Cloverfield four (currently titled Overlord) has already finished filming and is now slated for a release in October this year.

The events of the original Cloverfield, seen during The Cloverfield Paradox. That sounds GREAT. Alas, it's quickly apparent why Paramount decided not to theatrically release The Cloverfield Paradox: Particularly in its opening scenes, it's an awkward, poorly edited, exposition-dumping mess.

The Cloverfield Paradox should be credited with at least one thing, its rapid Netflix release.

The Butler didn't do it, cornerback benched for Super Bowl
But it will forever be hard to accept that Butler would not have made more plays than the likes of Richards or Bademosi. He was clearly emotional beforehand and expressed those feelings to ESPN's Mike Reiss afterwards .

"A trainwreck of a sci-fi flick bent on extending a franchise that should have died a peaceful death nearly exactly one decade ago, Julius Onah's The Cloverfield Paradox follows the lead of the far-superior 10 Cloverfield Lane in imagining a Cloverfield spinoff whose genre ingredients have little to do with the original found-footage, giant-monster flick".

We see brief glimpses of the protagonist of the new film in the rubble as a massive Clover stomps around the city hidden in debris. If this was a test run for this kind of release, it definitely worked, and we have to assume Netflix will do this again when the time is right. You don't have to watch This Is Us after the game after all.

The trailer is high on tension and low on details but thankfully we've only got to wait until tonight for the full details.
