We haven’t really seen anything from the third Cloverfield movie even though it’s supposed to be in theaters in less than a month, but that might be because it’s no longer coming out in February at all. According to /Film, Paramount has confirmed that the movie has now been bumped from February 2 to April 20 of this year, with the story suggesting that the decision to bump it back was made as recently as over the holidays. Given the limited information we have about this third entry in the loosely defined Cloverfield movie, it’s hard to say if this is because the movie needs more work or because Paramount needs to come up with some kind of clever reveal gimmick like with the original Cloverfield’s untitled trailer or 10 Cloverfield Lane’s announcement.
The other wrinkle is that we still don’t know what the movie is called. Way back when the project was first announced, it was a totally non-Cloverfield-related sci-fi movie titled God Particle about a team of astronauts with a particle accelerator who seemingly make the entire Earth vanish. That was years ago now, though, and it all could’ve changed. Of course, given this series, it seems safe to assume that it’ll be a fun surprise whenever we learn anything about it.
Whatever this movie will be called, it was directed by Julius Onah and will star Daniel Brühl, Elizabeth Debicki, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O’Dowd, and David Oyelowo.
