Netflix Surprise Releases Cloverfield Paradox During Super Bowl

While there are a few critics that seemed to legitimately enjoy the movie, regardless of its flaws, the vast majority of those that took in the movie after the big game seem to view it as a miss.

10 Cloverfield Lane arrived in 2016 and starred John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr.in a wonderfully bleak cautionary tale that fit into the universe of Cloverfield very well.

Following the news of a delay, Bad Robot's upcoming Cloverfield sequel, previously known as The God Particle, was set for an April release.

At the time of writing, the film has achieved an audience score of 63% on Rotten Tomatoes, while IMDB already has a rating of 6.7 stars on its official page for Paradox.

A crew of seven multilingual, racially diverse astronauts - led by David Oyelowo and Gugu Mbatha-Raw - are in an orbiting space station trying to get a particle accelerator to work, thereby solving the crisis. It's a unsafe and expensive experiment, which is why they have to test it in space. They're trying to ideal a system for unlimited energy with the world in crisis down below (a Cold War-style standoff with the Russians is talked about a lot).

The Cloverfield series has been an unconventional, but profitable one for Paramount. That object could have come from the rip in space-time caused by Cloverfield Station. One, in particular, stood above the rest. It takes place on a space station orbiting Earth before, during and after the events of that first film. Now, we can finally confirm that it's The Cloverfield Paradox! It's a jumble of ideas with little coherent logic holding them all together.

But the film is undoubtedly receiving its share of scathing reviews, with critics calling it a "trainwreck" and "a bust of a movie".

The production cost $40 million, almost twice what the original Cloverfield did. The final budget for Paradox was reportedly more than $40 million.

A trailer was relayed during the game, which happened to be the first footage ever shown to the public, before it was later revealed that the film would be available to stream immediately after the championship game. (Nor do you have to spring for a babysitter, if you have kids.) But that's a measure of the Netflix service itself, and its current buying power in Hollywood.
