If you liked Deepwater Horizon last weekend, perhaps you’ll want to catch Peter Berg‘s other new movie based on a real-life tragedy and starring Mark Wahlberg as a down-to-earth hero when it opens later this year.
Patriots Day centers on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that killed several people and injured hundreds more. Walhberg plays police sergeant Tommy Saunders, who’s present at the scene and in the days that follow, gets involved in the manhunt for the perpetrators. J.K. Simmons, John Goodman, Kevin Bacon, and Michelle Monaghan also star. Watch the Patriots Day trailer below. Read More »

The sci-fi thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane has been in theaters for nearly a month now, and if you haven’t seen the movie, you’re missing out on one of the most riveting, suspenseful flicks of the decade. A big part of what makes the movie so captivating is that it keeps you guessing the whole way through. You never really know what’s happening or whom to trust until the very end of the movie. Which is why some new marketing materials from overseas are a bit frustrating.
The international marketing campaign for 10 Cloverfield Lane apparently doesn’t care about keeping the mystery intact and somewhat misleads the audience as far as the film’s story is concerned. A new trailer and poster for the film’s forthcoming release in Thailand completely ruins the 10 Cloverfield Lane ending. Find out how after the jump, but obviously, beware of spoilers. Read More »
This weekend you should go out of your way to catch 10 Cloverfield Lane, an outstanding original sci-fi thriller that keeps you guessing the whole way through. One of the many reasons the flick works so well is an outstanding performance by John Goodman, proving yet again that he’s one of the best character actors of his generation. And now the actor has lined up another film in which he can steal scenes from the stars.
CBS Films and Lionsgate have announced that John Goodman has joined the cast of Patriots Day, one of several Boston Marathon bombing dramas in the works. Find out more about his role and the rest of the Patriots Day cast below. Read More »
Two months ago, it was revealed Dan Trachtenberg‘s directorial debut was a “spiritual” sequel to Cloverfield. The audience I saw 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi with were left both confused and excited by the trailer‘s title card. The question all along — well, actually just for the past two months — has been: how much of a sequel is this movie? Now we know. Kind of.
Please note that spoilers are encouraged in the comments section for this post. If you have not seen 10 Cloverfield Lane, we encourage you to return once you have.
FINAL WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD AND IN THE COMMENTS.

There has been plenty of mystery surrounding Dan Trachtenberg‘s feature directorial debut, 10 Cloverfield Lane.

The Cloverfield connection is definitely helping build buzz for 10 Cloverfield Lane, even if it’s more of a spiritual link than a narrative one. But in truth, we were sold on this movie long before we knew what it’d be called. Dan Trachtenberg‘s directorial debut brings together three top-notch talents — John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher Jr. — into one cramped underground shelter. With that cast, it’s pretty much a given that sparks will fly, no matter where the story takes them, what the film ends up being called, or what’s really lying outside that doomsday bunker.
At a recent press day in New York, I got the chance to sit down with Goodman and Winstead to discuss their new movie — its ties to Cloverfield, its feminist slant, Goodman’s terrifying character, and what it’s taught them about prepping for doomsday. Check out our 10 Cloverfield Lane John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead interviews after the jump. Read More »

I’m trying to stay in the dark when it comes to 10 Cloverfield Lane. The teaser showed us pretty much everything we needed to know, but apparently the trailer that premiered the other day on The Walking Dead revealed more information about Dan Trachtenberg‘s feature debut. With the film opening in theaters next month, we’ll soon see more from 10 Cloverfield Lane.
For the past few weeks there’s been plenty of viral marketing for the project, and now we have more of it to unpack, including different trailers and coordinates to a location — which someone actually went to and took a video of his discovery.

A viral campaign for 10 Cloverfield Lane has begun, and it seems to connect directly with the augmented reality game (ARG) for Matt Reeves‘ original Cloverfield. Earlier this month we explained how Tagruato (the Japanese drilling company that produced Slusho that was likely responsible for unleashing the Cloverfield monster on New York City) had new activity on the interwebs. Well, now the official company website has posted an update that directly connects the backstory for 10 Cloverfield Lane to the original Cloverfield. While I’m pretty sure that this backstory isn’t explicitly explored in the movie, I’ll let you choose if you want to learn more.
