A movie that appears out of nowhere? This seems to be the case for The Cloverfield Paradox which was all of a sudden streaming on Netflix after yesterday’s Super Bowl. After landing Will Smith’s Bright this is another scoop for the streaming service, although just how much traction the movie will receive, after no trailers, poster or any marketing to speak of, is debatable.

Paradox is the third instalment in the Cloverfield franchise, with the first two movies having no strong connection to speak of. Paradox might explain the monsters in the first movie, with the crew on board a space station messing around with a particle accelerator. There would not have been a movie if things didn’t go horribly wrong, and we soon see alien tentacles making light work of the crew.

Having said that, the 30 second teaser of the movie doesn’t reveal much, which is why it’s perhaps  better to head over to Netflix tonight and watch the full movie. It stars Daniel Brühl (Avengers: Civil War) Chris O'Dowd (The IT Crowd) and Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby), and is directed by a man we don’t know a lot of - Julius Onah, previously responsible for The Girl Is in Trouble.
