JJ Abrams is not making a Cloverfield Sequel!? After the disappointment of Netflix‘s The Cloverfield Complex, any sci-fi, horror thrillers involving Abrams will be approached with a similar question. Paramount Pictures has released the first UK Trailer for Overlord and it looks ‘batshit crazy’.
This may not be invading gigantic space creatures, but Nazi zombies!
Abrams did say in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly that “It’s not a Cloverfield movie, We are actually developing a true, dedicated Cloverfield sequel, which will be coming to you, theaters very soon.”
Even after those comments and watching the trailer, there’s nothing to say this film could still be easily a Cloverfield film.
Overlord still feels one big mystery box which leaves many doors opened. In true Abrams/ Bad Robot style, we don’t know a lot about the film which is a great move. On paper, this may just look like another zombie flick but it’s that tease that makes us want to find out more about it. Whatever other direction this film may take, those fortunate to have seen footage at CinemaCon earlier this year went crazy over it. That’s enough for us to keep onboard.
There is no official synopsis been released yet. What we’ve learned we find ourselves in World War 2, a group of U.S Soldiers is shot down over war-torn France. Looking for shelter they stumble across a creepy old house which seems to be conducting gruesome experiments. Cue the chaos as Nazi super soldiers attack!
Overlord doesn’t have the confirmed UK and Irish release date apart from ‘Coming Soon’ If you’re in the USA, 26th October. Will this one be a cinematic release or will it end up on Netflix?
The film stars Pilou Asbæk, Jovan Adepo, Jacob Anderson, Iain De Caestecker, John Magaro, Wyatt Russell, and Bokeem Woodbine.Powered by Sidelines
