The found-footage monster movie Cloverfield didn't just create a new trend in film - it created an entire franchise mythos that has endured nearly a decade, even without a proper sequel. Fans got a "spiritual sequel" in 2016 with 10 Cloverfield Lane, and a third "Cloverfield Universe" movie, God Particle, was scheduled for February 24, 2017.
However, today we learn this is yet another movie with the Cloverfield name coming in 2017, raising new questions about what it could be.
Exhibitor Relations shared the following Tweet:
Can't keep anything hidden these days. Paramount's 2017 CLOVERFIELD MOVIE (IMAX) drops from the sky October 27, 2017.— Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) December 8, 2016
And, after fans tried to point out that God Particle must be moving release dates, we got the following update from Exhibitor Relations:
The new CLOVERFILED MOVIE drops 10/27/17, which means GOD PARTICLE, set for 2/24/17, has been removed from Paramount's schedule.— Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) December 8, 2016
There are no details at this time about what this IMAX movie is, who is involved, or how much of it is in IMAX - but now that the mystery is there, we're sure a viral announcement and PR campaign is sure to follow!
What do you want to see in the next Cloverfield movie? A proper sequel perhaps?
