I think you missed the joke I was making.

"World of Godzilla" isn't a new film series. It's a global marketing initiative by Toho to expand the brand into more territories around the world.


Oh sorry,sarcasm doesn't catch on quite as fast when i'm on the web.

If Cloverfield does find it's way into the MV,and it's utter crap induced story bleeds into it and the Godzilla and Kong films,i honestly might be done with the MonsterVerse and put full focus on the World of Godzilla.


You'll stop paying attention to a movie franchise and put all your focus on a worldwide marketing project? Doesn't seem like a 1:1 transition.

Outside of Paradox that is.


Disagree. 10 BOREFIELD Lane honestly drove me out of the series and Paradox was the nail in the coffin.


To each his own but I don't see how Lane bored you unless you were expecting a direct sequel.

That slow claustrophobic burn followed by the brutal death of a major character (there's only 3 (almost 4) characters in the entire film surprisingly) was iconic in my book, it felt so unique. Especially since I had no idea if they'd go the direct sequel route or not, (would've preferred a direct sequel but),

I think, and this is just my opinion, that the movie would've been better as its own thing - the way it was before Abrams tacked on the Cloverfield name and added some lame aliens and a molotov cocktail. It's such a tonal whiplash my neck almost broke.

A few thoughts around this:

- I would speculate that Paramount has some sway over movies they are associated with from Bad Robot/Abrams, meaning they may have the first say-so or something like that with a property like Cloverfield.

- Even so, Paramount may be willing to do some type of co-production/distribution with another major studio.

- Despite Godzilla being inspirational for the Cloverfield movie and monster, I don't know if Abrams necessarily would want a direct crossover between them. Maybe yes, but maybe no.

- If some type of crossover does happen, they could put the Cloverfield monster and Godzilla in some different Clover continuity. They wouldn't be left with only the 2008 Cloverfield universe or the MonsterVerse.

- A crossover would be interesting, I believe that. For what it's worth Cloverfield as a brand does have equity and could draw in people who may not go to a MonsterVerse movie automatically. They'd have to weigh the value of that.

That new Underwater film looks like something straight out of Cloverfield, it's even shot and advertised similarly. Just saw a trailer for it.

Could that be a surprise Clovie film? Or is it a different studio?

I'mma be patient with you because it sounds like you're just learning about it, but it's a different studio. So, no, not a Cloverfield movie.

But yeah i had no idea what it was, just seemed to fit with the general Clover aesthetic.

The Cloverfield fanbase is... aggressively eccentric, to put it politely. Paradox absolutely fried the brains of some of 'em.
