Cloverfield 3 Now Available on Netflix After Surprise Super Bowl Spot


J.J. Abrams has proven once again that he is able to keep a secret. Although recent rumours had already pegged the next Cloverfield movie as potentially going to Netflix instead of theatres, the streaming giant surprised everyone tonight with a Super Bowl spot that not only confirmed the news but also revealed that the movie would be available to watch immediately after the game. The official title is The Cloverfield Paradox and it seems to be more directly tied to the original Cloverfield, hinting at an explanation for the arrival of the monster. The movie was previously announced under the title God Particle and it stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Oyelowo, Daniel Brühl, John Ortiz, Chris O’Dowd, and Zhang Ziyi. Check out the Super Bowl trailer after the jump and then head over to Netflix to hit play right now!

    Can’t wait to hear the review on the podcast. VOD trash or VOD treasure?

  • parapa

    This might be the worst movie I’ve seen in at least 5 years, hooooly shit. Actually insane they spent 40 million on this, even crazier that Netflix would get suckered into bailing Paramount out on this one

  • Bandit Manatee

    This is the Schroedigers cat of VOD trash. Was it always VOD trash or did it become VOD trash when purchased by Netflix?

    Seriously does not feel like this was ever intended for theatrical release and the cloverfield “connection” is embarrassing and makes no sense. It almost feels like it was tacked on at the last minute.

  • What an absolute piece of shit. Maybe this movie was released this way to prove that the traditional way of promoting a movie, allowing reviewers to inform the public, and giving the movie a theatrical run, etc. is still the gold standard.

    The first 11 minutes before the title screen were total throw-away. I feel like this movie is the product of a test AI that analyzed 1000’s of sci-fi movies and then wrote a script. After 10 Cloverfield Lane I was 100% in on more Cloverfield universe. Now I’m 100% out. I was already debating cancelling Netflix due to the overload of TV shows and crappy Original content, this might have sealed the deal.

    They should’ve just renamed this movie “The Death of Cinema.” I felt like I was watching a rejected Battlestar Galactica.

  • Bandit Manatee

    I’m liking this conspiracy angle. Sabotage Netflix by selling them a dud although I’m in hard pressed to believe Netflix execs could look at this and believe it was good

  • Lori Cerny

    Worse than the Emoji movie?!

  • Strybeck

    Worse than The Circle?

  • Jake

    Does this mean we’ll be getting a review of this on this week’s episode? I’m gonna have to watch it asap if that’s the case.

  • James Collins

    Why is there no option to select English 5.1 audio on this movie? I am using an nvidia shield box.

  • Dirk Gently

    This movie is completely tone deaf. I expect James Franco to make a film about it later this year with himself playing the monster.

  • Tim

    I canceled Netflix a few months ago, getting tired of their weird interface and quickly lowering content quality. But Sunday night I signed back up to watch this. J-F-C, I couldn’t get through it. In the first twenty minutes I realized I was watching VOD trash that was heading into negative percentage points in terms of creativity. My journey to completely resenting JJ Abrams is complete.

  • Tim

    You are correct.
