Is this a sequel to Cloverfield (2008)? From what we can gather, yes, it is. Kind of.
I wouldn't hold my breath to see the Cloverfield monster in this one, as the movie looks to be nothing more than loosely tied to that world, and like it will be telling a different story altogether, but you never know. Our guess is that this will be a prequel, and the chemical attack that John Goodman is so afraid of ends up being the birth of the Cloverfield monster.
Or it could take place years after the first movie, where maybe they launched a chemical attack or something on the monster to kill it, and the people in the bunker are just trying to survive the fallout.
Or it could just be a Psychological Thriller about people locked in a bunker together.
However it plays out, the trailer looks great. John Goodman is always great in whatever he shows up in, and same goes for Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The dude from The Newsroom is good too, so at the very least, we have a very solid cast to enjoy.
