10 Cloverfield Lane is an upcoming 2016 American science fiction mystery thriller film and the directorial debut of Dan Trachtenberg. The film was written by Josh Campbell, Matthew Stuecken, and Damien Chazelle and stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman and John Gallagher, Jr. The film started as a script titled The Cellar, but during production under Bad Robot Productions, it evolved to become what producer J. J. Abrams described as “a blood relative” of the 2008 film Cloverfield. A trailer was released in early 2016 and met with positive reception by both viewers and online communities such as Reddit. The film is set to be released on March 11, 2016.
After surviving a car accident, a young woman wakes up in an underground cellar, where most of the action takes place. She fears she has been abducted by a survivalist, who tells her he saved her life and that a worldwide chemical attack has left Earth’s surface uninhabitable. Uncertain what to believe, she decides she must escape, no matter what dangers she may face outside.
