The 'Cloverfield' franchise is an anthology series of seemingly unrelated movies in the science fiction and horror genres. However, each installment is united with a common thread that runs through every movie. The J.J. Abrams produced films will add Cloverfield's Overlord (2018) to the fold later this year. Fan excitement has only been heightened with future rumored annual installments going forward and speculation on what may lie ahead in the Cloververse.

Which J.J. Abrams produced science fiction movie that he calls "blood relatives" is your favorite, so far: Cloverfield (2008) or 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) or The Cloverfield Paradox (2018)?

The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) debuts after Super Bowl 52!


J.J. Abrams Says Next ‘Cloverfield’ Entry ‘Overlord’ Is A “Crazy Movie”
The upcoming “Overlord” (as it’s titled for now, though who knows if that will change) is widely expected to be next ‘Cloverfield’ movie. Starring Wyatt Russell, Pilou Asbæk, and Bokeem Woodbine, the film follows Allied soldiers who are trapped behind enemy lines on D-Day. They soon encounter a supernatural force being used by the Nazis. [INSERT CLOVERFIELD CONNECTION]. At any rate, the film, directed by Julius Avery (“Son Of A Gun“), has apparently been testing well, and it has some pretty big writers on it including Billy Ray (“Shattered Glass,” “Captain Phillips,” “The Hunger Games“) and Mark L. Smith (“The Revenant“). In fact, Abrams is already jazzed for everyone to see it.

The J.J. Abrams produced Overlord (2018) has removed the Cloverfield elements from the film and the film is no longer part of the Cloverfield franchise. Although abrams confirmed the franchise will move foward and another film is in development becoming the fourth edition in the franchise.

10 Cloverfield Lane takes the cake for me. I'm expecting Overlord to be good, though it's hard to gauge where it'd rank because I obviously haven't seen it.

I agree, I thought the same. It was great as a stand alone movie. Plus, I thought throughout the movie, John Goodman's story about why he brought them underground was bull. The fact it turned out to be true and the Cloverfield twist was masterful piece of storytelling..

I like the reveal at the end, but I did feel as though it went on for a little too long. I would have preferred if the reveal was more brief—like a stinger. Though the rest of the film was so fantastic that I can look over that.

Yeah, it could see an abrupt end to movie after the reveal being very effective.

Netflix’s ‘Cloverfield Paradox’ Pulled in 5 Million Viewers in 7 Days After Surprise Release

Netflix’s pickup of J.J. Abrams’ widely panned sci-fi movie “The Cloverfield Paradox” hasn’t turned out as well as another of the streamer’s big-budget original films, “Bright. ”The movie notched just 2.8 million U.S. viewers in the first three days after its surprise post-Super Bowl release on Feb. 4, according to Nielsen data. But the total audience grew to 5.0 million over a seven-day period, per Nielsen’s estimates.

Netflix guerrilla-marketed the launch of “Cloverfield Paradox” during Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4, buying an ad in the NBC telecast announcing that the film would be available to stream following the game. Netflix reportedly paid Paramount Pictures more than $50 million to rights to the film, which previously carried the title “God Particle.”

I voted for 10 Cloverfield Lane.  Goodman was robbed of an P Supporting Actor nomination.
But I actually enjoyed the trippy, chaotic nature of the story and broken physics of Cloverfield Paradox.  Even far more than the original Cloverfield.

Me too, I like the first one the least and 10 Cloverfield Lane the best. I was reading that Cloverfield Paradox was a bit rushed, so they didn't integrate into Cloverfield thread as well as they would have liked. I do like how they seem to be using the franchise to take worthy scripts and get them made into movies, introducing the Cloverfield treatment after the fact to make them part of the anthology.
