J.J. Abrams Teases Cloverfield Sequel In New Trailer

Titled 10 Cloverfield Lane and set for release on 11 March, the trailer reveals little beyond John Goodman being John Goodman in an underground bunker and the sense that something not very nice is lurking outside.

While not exactly a classic, the first film did a good job of creating a lingering sense of tension and dread and if director Dan Trachtenberg can eradicate some of the tired Godzilla-esque tropes from the original story, this could be a decent under the radar watch for 2016.
