When Cloverfield was released in 2008, people had no idea what the movie will be like. It turned out to be a mixture of Science fiction and a Monster movie.

The original Cloverfield is now considered a cult classic. That film utilized the found-footage premise and centers on six Big Apple residents who, while at a friend’s party, witness a Godzilla-like monster attacking the city. Grossing roughly $170 million, the popcorn film was well-received by critics and fans alike. No one, however, expected a sequel. The secrecy surrounding 10 Cloverfield Lane has been quite intense, to say the least.

The film takes place mostly in a bunker and that there is indeed a monster in the film. “It’s not the monster you expect, but there is a monster,” Abrams told Entertainment Weekly.

“Before shooting the scene, I would just try to rush a lot of blood to my head and make myself dizzy,” says Winstead to Daily News, describing how she got into the moment in the follow-up to 2008’s Cloverfield.

“Just to make myself feel what my character would feel physically in the scene — to feel like I’m going to die. I can’t wait to see the film and see how it all comes together, because I’m still kind of as much in the dark as everyone else,” she says.

Here are all the details you’ll need to know regarding the loose sequel to the 2008 sci-fi thriller:
