Cloverfield Celebrates 15th Anniversary

Cloverfield came out 15 years ago today.

2008 Cloverfield

JJ Abrahams’ Cloverfield, directed by The Batman‘s Matt Reeves, hit theaters 15 years ago today on January 18th, 2008. The Godzilla-Esque monster movie stars Lizzy Caplan, Jessica Lucas, T.J. Miller, Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, and Odette Yustman. The movie would make $172 million worldwide on a $25 million budget. A franchise was built around the movie, and two films were spun-off, 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane and 2018’s The Cloverfield Paradox. A direct sequel to the first film is currently in development.


As a group of New Yorkers (Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman) enjoys a going-away party, little do they know that they will soon face the most terrifying night of their lives. A creature the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city, leaving death and destruction in its wake. The friends use a handheld video camera to record their struggle to survive as New York crumbles around them.
