When it was rumored that J.J. Abrams was producing a WWII monster movie, many thought it would be a secret Cloverfield prequel, and the Clovie fans went nuts.
10 Cloverfield Lane went by a secret name until 2 weeks before the film released and the Cloverfield Paradox was a secret film until releasing on Netflix during the Superbowl, so this film being a secret Cloverfield film wouldn’t be that far of a reach. Unfortunately for those fans, it’s not (at least not at the screenings). Instead, it’s a WWII horror hybrid, and 85% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, a high score for a horror film.
In the above interview Producer J.J. Abrams explains the premise, Director Julius Avery goes into why the two aren’t far off from each other, Wyatt Russell, Pilou Asbæk, Iain De Caestecker, and Mathilde Ollivier gives us the reasons why people will like the film, and Jovan Adepo dives into the different genres and why this film is different from any other WWII film.
‘Overlord’ releases November 9, 2018.
