'10 Cloverfield Lane' Trailer: J.J. Abrams Returns To a Cult Hit

Cloverfield, the 2008 thriller produced by J.J. Abrams, became a cult classic soon after its release, and is now getting a sequel, once again produced by the Star Wars: The Force Awakens director. The first trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane arrived on Friday (Jan. 15).

Directed by Dan Trachtenberg, 10 Cloverfield Lane finds John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr. holed up in some sort of underground bunker. Why are they there? How much of it has to do with the original Cloverfield? And why do these kids want to break bottles off in Goodman's face and try to escape?

10 Cloverfield Lane hits theaters on Mar. 11, at which point Abrams' Star War: The Force Awakens might have left theaters. Maybe, but probably not.
