Cloverfield Paradox early buzz

Netflix and the Cloverfield franchise pulled off a huge surprise last night, first dropping the long-awaited trailer for the third film in the series before handing us another shocker: the movie would be available to stream immediately after the Super Bowl.

It’s a clever marketing scheme that holds true to the “disruptive” nature of both the Cloverfield franchise and the streaming service. Viewers would have no choice but to go into the movie fresh, with no positive or negative reviews to taint their movie-watching experience. It’s a bold experiment — but did it work? And was the movie at the center of it all, now titled The Cloverfield Paradox, worth the trouble?

The Alienist

When The Alienist was first published in 1994, author Caleb Carr said, “I was always aware that if done correctly, this could end up being a great movie.” Well, we’ll never know if a great movie could’ve been made from this material, and not for lack of trying. Paramount Pictures bought the movie rights before publication in 1993, but behind-the-scenes squabbles about budget and scripts kept The Alienist from the big screen for more than two decades.

Now Carr’s serial killer novel finds new life as a TNT TV series, with True Detective season 1 director Cary Fukunaga serving as producer and Black Mirror director Jakob Verbruggen at the helm. The verdict, after all that delay, is this: perhaps it would’ve made a better movie than TV show.
