Earlier this week during the Superbowl, film fans were pleasantly suprised when not only a trailer and first image for J.J. Abrams’ The Cloverfield Paradox was released but the entire movie also dropped on Netflix that very evening!

Last night, cast members and J.J. himself were in London to talk about the movie, the secrets that surround it and why it was the perfect time to drop the movie onto Netflix keeping up the secrecy that surrounds the Cloverfield franchise.

Below are soundbites from the evening along with the full Q&A which was streamed live on Facebook. Those in attendance were Producer J.J. Abrams, Roger Davies who plays Michael, David Oyelowo who plays Kiel and director Julius Onah.
