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?

a wrinkle in time tv spot

No hero can go on a journey without gifts and wise words from omnipotent beings who began the story as their kooky next-door-neighbors. Because when you get down to it, A Wrinkle in Time is about the crazy cat lady next door who turns out to be a celestial being who can transcend time and space — and only wants to help you find your dashing scientist father.
