One thing you have to appreciate about the Cloverfield franchise is that it is building its own mythology without the films’ actually knowing its a part of J.J. Abrams’ grand mystery box scheme. Cloverfield was a sci-fi romp that drew its found-footage inspiration from films like Blair Witch. 10 Cloverfield Lane was a more focused offering that was like a theatrical play set almost entirely in an underground bunker. And both are somehow loosely connected to each other without the characters of those films knowing it. However, Netflix surprised us all on Sunday night by releasing The Cloverfield Paradox, the latest installment of the Cloverfield franchise, this time set in space.
Unfortunately, the entire film is a disjointed mess that haphazardly throws in dated and familiar plot devices and twists for the sake of being “Cloverfield In Space.”
A new promotional video has been released for The Martian, the upcoming sci-fi drama directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael PeÃ±a, Sebastian Stan, Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sean Bean, Mackenzie Davis, Aksel Hennie, and Donald Glover.
Instead of a trailer, the video is presented realistically, as a special episode of StarTalk with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about mankind finally visiting Mars and the upcoming mission there that we’ll see in the movie. It’s basically like an episode of Cosmos…from the future!

Even though he is millions of miles away and four years from Earth receiving his message, he does make contact.
