J.J. Abrams on 'Cloverfield' franchise

When the original 'Cloverfield' opened in cinemas in 2008, secrecy surrounded the production so much that the first trailer released didn't even include the title of the film. 

The trailer to the supposed sequel, '10 Cloverfield Lane', arrived unannounced with nobody outside J.J. Abram's production company Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures knowing of its existence. 

It showed a homely scene of a family interacting together, but then tensions ignite and the lead character

Michelle (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead) makes a break for the outside world - while being warned not to. The film, directed by Dan Trachtenberg, isn't shot using home video cameras like 'Cloverfield', prompting fans to ask the question of how the two are connected. 

Speaking in an interview, Abrams, who recently had huge success with 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', said '10 Cloverfield Lane' was linked to 'Cloverfield' but had an original story and original characters.
