Three decades after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, a new threat arises. The First Order attempts to rule the galaxy and only a ragtag group of heroes can stop them, along with the help of the Resistance.
Soon after leaving her fiancé Michelle is involved in a car accident. She awakens to find herself sharing an underground bunker with Howard and Emmett. Has she been saved from an apocalyptical event as Howard & Emmett tell her or are there other motives for her being held against her will?
A letterhead is seen with "Bold Futura" and Tagruato Inc. on it. This is tied directly with the films viral marketing campaign and the original Cloverfield (2008), as SLUSHO! and Bold Futura are subsidiaries of the fictional company Tagruato. Howard worked with satellites for Bold Futura in this film, Rob was going to Japan to work as Vice President of Marketing for SLUSHO!. See more »
At the beginning of the film, when Michelle checks her phone while driving, the clock at the top shows that the time is 6:29pm. When she eventually wakes up in the bunker, the time on her phone still shows the time as 6:29pm.
However, it is revealed that she has been unconscious for "a couple of days", so the time of days is not an error. See more »

10 Cloverfield Lane gives all the development and the meaningful story that its blood relative installment lacked completely. This is not a spectacle full of screams and special effects. This is a spectacle of tension and suspense of epic proportions. This is a really feel-bad movie at certain points.
First of all, you have to take the leap of faith and go ahead watching without knowing anything of the plot. Don't worry because all the teasers doesn't reveal anything important, but don't try to search information. If everything were that easy, even Hitchcock or Nolan movies would lose all interest.
I was extremely hooked since the furious start to the eye popping and surprising finale. The direction is amazing and claustrophobic. The performances are great, looking up to a surprising Winstead and a unrestrained unforgettable turn by Goodman. The story is gleefully unapologetic delivering chills and full blooded twists (the biggest of all is the intense ending reveal) even thought it deviates from the monster POV storyline.
Secretly made, impeccably marketed, nicely developed and finally here along with us: 10 Cloverfield Lane promised thrills and delivered it and then some. I was expecting some things that I tasted but I was surprised by a complexity and a twisted sense of horror that I didn't see coming. 2016 has released the very first great movie of the year.
