Has Slusho! struck again?!
Back in 2008, J.J. Abrams sent moviegoers into a frenzy when he teased a secret film that turned out to be Cloverfield. Eight years later, he's done it again with 10 Cloverfield Lane, a sequel of sorts starring John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. It's not found footage this time, but looks terrifying.
And that's about all we know.
"We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield," Abrams explained in a statement, revealing the idea came up "a long time ago." "The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible."
As the trailer boasts, 10 Cloverfield Lane comes "From Producer J.J. Abrams" -- when did he have the time?! -- and was directed by Dan Trachtenberg, who previously helmed the short film, Portal: No Escape. (Which you can watch here.)
Back when Winstead's casting was announced -- and the movie was referred to as The Cellar -- Variety shared this plot description:
"The majority of the movie takes place in an underground cellar, and revolves around a young woman who wakes up in the cellar after a severe car accident and fears she has been abducted. Her captor, a doomsday prepper, tells her he saved her life and that there has been a terrible chemical attack that has left the outside uninhabitable. She does not know what to believe and as tensions rise, she decides she must escape, regardless of the terrors that await outside."
Which begs a million more questions: Like, how long after Cloverfield does this take place? Who does John Gallagher Jr. play? Most importantly, will there be monsters in this, too?! Thankfully, we won't have to wait too long for answers: 10 Cloverfield Lane arrives in theaters on March 11.
