It has been over a year since we heard that Julius Onah’s delayed sci-fi film The God Particle was being held back so it could be reformed into the third installment in J.J. Abrams’ loosely defined Cloverfield franchise, then suffering multiple delays after that, but the movie finally made its debut during tonight’s Super Bowl.
And there won’t be any more delays from here: The Cloverfield Paradox, as we now know it’s called, will be streaming on Netflix immediately following the Super Bowl. The impatient can still watch the trailer, which cuts jarringly from the found-footage POV of the original Cloverfield, then jumps into outer space, where a severed arm crawls across the floor, stuff blows up, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw ups the mystery ante by begging an unseen someone to put a halt to whatever they’re doing. It probably has something to do with that Crawling Hand refugee—and maybe, just maybe, ties into the Cloverfield monster itself.
The Cloverfield Paradox stars Mbatha-Raw, Daniel Brühl, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris O’Dowd, and David Oyelowo. It’ll be waiting on Netflix tonight for anyone who isn’t watching Milo Ventimiglia get roasted to death by a Crock-Pot.
