So......people went to see 13 Hours, then? Huh. January.

Doesn't look a sequel-sequel to Cloverfield, just that they wanted to do a "Dysfunctional family in shelter with crazy Goodman dad" story, and just pasted Bad Robot's best-known franchise onto it.
If Abrams wanted to produce a sequel, he'd have kept the found-footage gimmick, although nobody really does that when found-footage thrillers get sequels anymore.

According to Abrams, it's not supposed to be a sequel. A "blood relative" set within the world.

It's still a sequel. The monster is probably the reason they're hiding in the first place, and I'm guessing Abrams called it a "blood relative" to keep people off of his scent.

Seriously, the way they were able to keep this a secret--in the age of the internet no less--is pretty remarkable.
"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift--that is why it's called the present."

I think most people were being distracted by another little film he was working on... ;)

I wonder if this will reignite interest in looking for hidden connections with the Dharma Initiative. 8)

Great, fun film! Try to go in as unspoiled as possible. I literally had a new theory about what in the world was going on every couple of minutes! Love it when a film keeps me guessing!
