With only two sequels in the bank, it’s not really fair to say that this strategy is 100% flawed. 10 Cloverfield Lane is actually really good, but that doesn’t have much to do with the Cloverfield portions. Like Paradox, 10 Cloverfield Lane was made a part of the franchise later in production. The Cloverfield stuff is arguably the worst part of the movie, but it doesn’t get in the way of the enjoyment. So, really, the strategy is 50-50 right now. We know of at least one more Cloverfield movie that’s on the way, and it’s just as secretive as its predecessors. Whether or not it’s more of a 10 Cloverfield Lane or Cloverfield Paradox, we’ll just have to wait and see.
