Nowadays, Easter eggs in movies are like bread and butter - you rarely see them apart. As a lover of superhero films, I live and breathe Easter eggs. So when I went to look back at Cloverfield, I wondered if there were any Easter eggs to be found. It was made in a time when Easter eggs weren't really important. Luckily, there were some that I found particularly interesting.
Cloverfield was a surprise hit. It was a film that no one knew anything about when it was announced and released a few months later. Of course, there were some that didn't enjoy the movie (it being the "found footage" genre and all) but for the most part, critics praised the film. In short it was one of the best examples of a found footage movie done right. There were thrills, chills, twists, turns, and a terrifying giant monster to boot (and for those of you keeping score at home, yes, I did just quote the Spider-Man video game for Playstation 1).
Fortunately for us, J.J. Abrams hasn't forgotten about the original Cloverfield, and decided to make 10 Cloverfield Lane in secret. Then it was announced in January and drops today. Sound familiar? The reviews are in for the movie as well, and it looks to be another success, but be warned, don't go into it expecting a monster movie. It's more of a thriller than anything else. As a matter of fact, it may not even need the "Cloverfield" name, as it really stands as its own creation. But because it technically bears the same name, I'm including it as a franchise.
So here are 10 Easter eggs from Cloverfield Franchise
10 The Bad Robot
9 King Kong
8 Fun with the Cast and Crew
7 "It's Still Alive"
6 Giant Ant
4 The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms Reference
3 Chapter 17
2 Double-Sided Poster
1 The Fall
This was my favorite moment in Cloverfield. After the main characters are seemingly dead, we are shown a shot of Hud and his girlfriend on a ferris wheel. The camera moves around a bit, and shows a brief shot of the water on the horizon. I'm proud to say that I caught this easter egg on my first watch. If you look closely, you can see something falling from the sky into the water. Originally, I thought this was the monster potentially coming from outer space, but I found out that it was actually a satellite that fell. The satellite falling is actually what ended up waking the Cloverfield monster in the first place. Houston, we have a problem.
