Los Angeles – Sneaky Netflix surprised everyone on Sunday by releasing a new Cloverfield flick right after the Super Bowl.
The streaming service debuted a trailer for The Cloverfield Paradox during Super Bowl 52. It mixed footage from the first film, a surprise hit in 2008, with clips from the new film from director Julius Onah.
Cloverfield featured a monster attacking New York through the recordings of a group of friends trying to survive the chaos.
Sunday's trailer promised viewers would “find out why" the monsters attacked. It shows a group of astronauts encountering problems with an experimental technology.
The film is produced by J.J. Abrams, who produced the original and a related 2016 film, 10 Cloverfield Lane.
