Surprise! There’s a new Cloverfield movie out right now on Netflix

After being rumoured for years, and first known under the title “God Particle”, the third film set in the Cloverfield universe has been released today on Netflix in a surprise move from Paramount Pictures, who had long planned the film for a cinematic release. The film, which we now know is called The Cloverfield Paradox, is a prequel to the original film – released almost ten years ago to the day.

Dropping its first teaser just hours ago during the Super Bowl, the film has been directed by Julius Onah and stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Oyelowo, Chris O’Dowd, Elizabeth Debicki and more, with the teaser promising to unravel many of the mysteries behind the original film – and it’s masterful viral campaign.

The Cloverfield Paradox is now live internationally on Netflix, in what is a remarkable move for a large budget Hollywood film. We know what we’ll be watching when we get home tonight…
