the cloverfield paradox netflix

Netflix has released a new film without any advance warning.

'The Cloverfield Paradox' is the sequel to the 2008 monster film 'Cloverfield'. Netflix released a 30-second teaser for it during the Super Bowl ad break on Sunday night, then dropped the film later that evening.

It's available to stream worldwide right now.

Directed by Julius Onah ('The Girl in Trouble'), it stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw ('Belle', 'Beyond the Lights') and David Oyelowo ('Selma'). Daniel Bruhl ('Rush') also stars, alongside Brit Chris O'Dowd ('The IT Crowd').

Set in the near future, it features a group of international astronauts on a space station who are working to solve the Earth's energy crisis. But the experimental tech onboard doesn't work as planned, leaving the team isolated and fighting for their survival.

Netflix has gone big on original content this year, investing a whopping $8 billion in shows and films that will be exclusive to the service.
