10 CLOVERFIELD LANE (12A)

WHO’S IN IT?

Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), John Goodman (Argo), John Gallagher, Jr. (Short Term 12)

WHO’S BEHIND THE CAMERA?

Dan Trachtenberg (film debut), director; Josh Campbell (4 Minute Mile), Matthew Stuecken (film debut) and Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), writers; J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Lindsey Weber (film debut), producers; Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead), composer; Jeff Cutter (Orphan), cinematographer; Stefan Grube (The Unrecovered), editor

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

A young woman (Winstead) wakes up in an underground cellar with two men (Goodman and Gallagher Jr), who tell her that she was in a car accident, and that the outside world has become uninhabitable after a worldwide chemical attack. Uncertain about what or who to believe, she decides that she must escape her confinement – only to find something far more sinister once she does…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

If rumours are to be believed about this one, then 10 Cloverfield Lane might well be the unexpected follow-up to the 2008 hit monster movie Cloverfield that people have been clamouring for since it first came out (though with a significantly less use of the tired found-footage gimmick, thank goodness).
