Netflix shocked Super Bowl viewers Sunday night by not only dropping The Cloverfield Paradox trailer, but surprising them with a very special announcement in regards to the highly-anticipated film.
The streaming service confirmed the movie would be available for streaming on Netflix as soon as the game ends, competing with the coveted post-game television slot that NBC's This Is Us holds.
The new Netflix film is set as a sequel to 2008's Cloverfield and 2016's 10 Cloverfield Lane. Produced by J.J. Abrams, the cast includes Daniel Brühl, Roger Davies, Elizabeth Debicki, Aksel Hennie, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O'Dowd, John Ortiz, David Oyelowo, and Zhang Ziyi.
“In the near future, a group of international astronauts on a space station are working to solve a massive energy crisis on Earth. The experimental technology aboard the station has an unexpected result, leaving the team isolated and fighting for their survival,” reads a description from Netflix.
