Now that it’s clear that Christopher Nolan‘s untitled upcoming film isn’t North By Northwest meets Inception, as was previously reported, many of us are back to speculating as to what it could be about.
But one thing that we do know is that it will be an event film that is scheduled for a summer 2020 release. And as many of us wait to find out what the film could be about, reports of who will star in it have emerged. Multiple reports say that BlacKkKlansman star John David Washington, High Life star Robert Pattinson, and Widows star Elizabeth Debicki are poised to have roles in Nolan’s mysterious new film. More on the report below.

Steve McQueen‘s Widows is not just a heist film. It’s a heist film with an empowering message, wrapped with social issues that continue to affect us today. It’s a phenomenal piece of work featuring women of color taking back the power. Though it has familiar heist tropes, Widows has plenty of depth, as well as twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat. Check out my full review below.
It’s been five years since we’ve seen anything from Academy Award-winning Steve McQueen. But the director is now back and with fearless female cast. In Widows, Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, and Cynthia Ervio play a group of women who have suffered the loss of their husbands. The only problem is, they have secrets to hide, leaving these widows with a debt owed to a dangerous group of people.

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.”
The first look at Cloverfield Paradox aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday night, and in a huge surprise announcement, Netflix will premiere the film on their streaming service tonight after the Big Game!
After being delayed multiple times, the film continues the vague and strange marketing campaign that the Cloverfield films are largely known for. Even finding out who will distribute the film was a mystery. But Netflix is no stranger to releasing big teasers on Super Bowl Sunday. They started to practice that last year with Stranger Things 2, and look how successful that turned out to be.
Now the teaser offers a tiny sneak peek into J.J. Abram’s latest mystery box, and it is just as cryptic and strange as the last two. Check out the first look at Cloverfield Paradox here below.
