    I'd honestly rather they just did something completely new... like they did with Super 8. There are too many talented people wasting their time on sequels/prequels nowadays IMO. That being said, I would love a sequel to 10CL at some point... it pretty much ended as though they plan to continue with it anyway. The last 15 minutes made the movie for me... not that I wasn't enjoying it before that point, but the way the tone just suddenly shifted was awesome!

    I like what JJ has done in smaller films, in huge franchises not so much.

    The thing is I agree with you about sequels/ prequels and reboots but a sequel was discussed years ago with cloverfield and I was a huge fan of that film from the first trailer lol and then loved the film, so when mat reeves spoke about a sequel from different perspectives and others in New York filming it then I couldn't wait but obviously never happened but I'm still open to a direct sequel, and yeah the way 10CL ended I now want a direct sequel to that but I also kinda like the idea of this twilight zone esque anthology.
    So like super 8 which I also adore and 10CL i would also like something new and the idea for God particle sounds really cool (but also fits with the weirdness of the other 2 films if they do all end up connecting especially the sattelite stuff)

    What is odd about that is - 10CL really isn't connected to Cloverfield.
    While there are mentions of things (like company names) that are in both films - there is absolutely no story impact or consequence for them existing in both films.
    The best example of this is that these same tenuous links exist between LOST and CLOVERFIELD (Slusho, etc.)
    and yet those stories are not linked.
    Cloverfield is being used as a "catch-all" name for what is amounting to a loose series of anthology movies, where the links are only that characters drink the same brand of cola, or read the same newspapers.
    (Or something about as flimsy).
    I have no problem with that. I just don't but into the "Cloververse" theory.
    After all, there was ZERO mention of Clover in 10CL. And the characters would have mentioned a giant monster attacking New York in comparison to their situation.

    Really looking forward to this and love the idea of the story.

    After 10cl which I look at as nothing to do with the Clovie universe tbh I'll do the same with this unless there is a In your face direct link

    Maybe becuase this one isn't a secret and they are making a big thing out of the Clovieverse it might actually have something to do with Clovie..... Maybe Iol

    Edit: didn't realise this was coming out in like 5 months and they want to release one each year! As long as the stories are good and don't all have cloverfield in the name

    I like the physics based alternate universe stuff.
    Believe it or not, it could be playing with the exact same ideas that were in the movie COHERENCE.
    (A really good film. Recommend it. A real cool mind bender.)

    Please do! I'd love to hear your opinion of it. It certainly does not talk down to the audience, but is also not as difficult as the (great film) PRIMER.
    They use this ingenious idea of colored glowsticks to help. (You'll see!)

    I had a little look and it does sound really interesting so i might watch it later.
    I've not heard of primer either. Just read that's about time travel so I might give that one a go too.

    What's that film where they win chances to go to the other planet next to theirs and it's like a parallel upside down universe or something. Always wanted to see that too but can't remember the name

    Edit: think it's upside down with dunst, I remember her in the trailer and I think it's when she actually started becoming a good actress. But it seems a bit more of a romance story to what I remember (which don't bother me)

    You are kind of mixing together the plots for ANOTHER EARTH and UPSIDE DOWN!
    PRIMER is a trip. But you really have to have your thinking cap on. It was written and directed by an honest to god physicist! (And it treats the audience like they are intelligent enough to understand without hand holding, or a Mr. DNA cartoon!:rofl:).

    Damn! No Mr. DNA

    "DINO DNA"

    Oh yeah I am, it's another earth but I do also remember the dunst one.

    Looks like I've got 4 sci fi's to watch of the back of this convo lol

    Oh really, that's interesting and parts may go over my head but I'm also intrigued by that so I'll defo give it a go.

    I'm watching dr strange tonight (mate just booked it) so maybe tomorow or when I get in later I'll watch coherence

    2 things, how is there not a trailer for this yet!!! It's out in under 3 months

    Secondly @C.C. 95 ive been wondering what thread we spoke about coherence in for ages and was literally searching for this thread to mention there's still no trailer etc etc

    Yeah fantastic film mate, cheers for recommending it. Love how simple it is but yet rather complex
    By simple I mean a couple of actors, same house, bit outside in the street etc. Love the ending and what she does to get back to a reality she's comfortable with. Crazy

    When she's going to the windows at the end was quality, particularly still seeing those 2 tied up.

    Interesting how it was all made too and how much of it was ad-libbed and how much the cast knew etc

    Also how he got the cast. Very cool

    - A really great sleeper film. It's too bad more people don't know about it. It's one of those movies that other independent filmmakers slam their heads and think "why didn't I think of that?!" Y'know, a great idea that requires little or no MONEY to do well (like PRIMER, CUBE, BLAIR WITCH PROJECT).:thumbs:

    Ps.- is that You in the avatar?! Because, if it is - you are a DEAD RINGER for John Landis!!:LOL:
