Viewers who tuned in last night for the midseason premiere of “The Walking Dead” also got a first look at this tense new promo for “10 Cloverfield Lane.”
It arrives a month after JJ Abrams and company shocked everyone with the surprise teaser for the film — described by the producer as “a blood relative of ‘Cloverfield'” — which was shot by director Dan Trachtenberg under the title “Valencia.”
While the teaser worked to establish a picture of tranquil family life (only to abruptly upend it), this spot is all about tension, as Mary Elizabeth Winstead awakens to find herself the prisoner — or is it patient? — of John Goodman, who claims to be keeping her and John Gallagher Jr. safe from … something outside the bunker. “Everyone outside of here is dead,” he says.
“10 Cloverfield Lane” opens March 11.
