Oh man, I fuck with this. J.J. Abrams and his Mystery Box posse have revealed that God Particle is actually the third installment in the Cloverfield series. As someone who enjoyed 10 Cloverfield Lane as a small, quiet Twilight Zone-esque flick, I’m down for installments of this loosely-tethered anthology series.

Director Dan Trachtenberg (’10 Cloverfield Lane’) joins ‘Black Mirror’ Season 3

Plus! plus, I got these various things that I’m enjoying/looking forward to/thinking about/et cetera.

J.J. Abrams wants a third ‘Cloverfield’ movie, compares series to ‘Twilight Zone’

10 Cloverfield Lane.

JarJar Braybrams wants a third Cloverfield movie. If the second (loosely connected) movie is as enjoyable for me as the first one, the I’m all aboard. Give me a weird mythos populating somewhat individual entrances into the franchise, and I’ll be fine. Overjoyed, even. Well, not overjoyed. Joyed.

’10 Cloverfield Lane’ Trailer #2: I’m Going To Keep You Alive

Out of all the people I know, I’m the one that enjoyed Cloverfield the most. I’m an easy mark for found footage, monsters, and attractive people being gutted and harvested to grow Monsters. So I’m understandably excited for this spiritual spin-off.
