Let's talk Cloverfield, The Cloverfield Paradox and Overlord


It's been over 10 years since I started this blog. Of course it was dedicated to Cloverfield, to unveil the secret of the ARG and the film. But it was also meant as a short time project to improve my english skills – since I'm from germany and started working with many US-american and english people. I'd never thought that I would comeback over and over again – but thanks to JJ Abrams I do.

He shaped Cloverfield into something really special. It's not longer just a movie or name … or franchise. It's a umbrella branding for original and high-concept films that would never stand a chance as standalone-projects in Hollywood. It's method of realizing original ideas and knitting them together into a fascinating universe in which everything is possible.

Today Netflix annouced that it's streaming the next Cloverfield-film called The Cloverfield Paradox that was known before as The God Particle. The Julius Onah directed flick will go live right after the current Super Bowl game. Set in the near future a bunch of astronauts working on a experiment to solve the energy crisis on earth. But the experiment goes wrong and strange stuff starts to happen. 

And rumor has it that the 4th Cloverfield film is already finished. It's working title is Overlord. It will be set during a supernatural Nazi experiment in World War 2. A group of american paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to destroy a transmission tower. But then they face supernatural forces. The film is directed by Julius Avery and stars Wyatt Russell and Jovan Adepo.

A New E-Mail Is Sent From Tagruato

Do you guys remember Tagruato? This was the parent company of Slusho and several oil rigs in the world wide oceans. In the original Cloverfield ARG an environmental group called TIDO Wave tried to stop a drilling at a new rig near New York City. And like a whistle blower mentioned Tagruato wasn't searching for oil there but something dangerous that was hidden deep down. But the station got destroyed by an unknown force – something that Tagruato tried to cover up. 

Now … Tagruato is back and sent an email to all who years before contacted the official mail address: 18KagashimaD@tagruato.jp
