The viral marketing for 10 Cloverfield Lane almost feels more persistent and pervasive than the marketing campaign for Cloverfield — though as many of you will remember, those promotional puzzles weren’t really related to Matt Reeves’ monster film, but that doesn’t exactly seem to be the case with 10 Cloverfield Lane. A new piece of viral marketing fun has arrived online, this time offering a text-based simulation game (think Oregon Trail, minus the images) that challenges users to stay alive in an underground bunker for as long as possible.
Bad Robot unveiled a new trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane during last night’s midseason premiere of The Walking Dead, and although producer J.J.

So far, it's proved successful, and now Amazon has officially given the green light to 'Alpha House' season 2, in addition to series orders for six ot
“They don't make 'em like that anymore!”
That's what my old man always liked to say when we'd watch a black and white Hollywood classic. Sometimes he meant it as a sign of respect. Sometimes he meant it to mean, "Wow, that was super cheesy."
George Clooney's 'The Monuments Men' goes right down the middle.
It’s not every day that an actor of John Goodman’s caliber hosts ‘SNL,’ but whatever the odds, it’s not nearly as uncommon as him being joined by Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro for a holiday-themed sketch that sees the three silver screen icons re-imagined as tough-talking guys on the way to visit the baby Jesus. Yep, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas …
We're midway through 'SNL''s December 2013 run after 'Anchorman 2' player Paul Rudd's star-studded turn with One Direction this past weekend, leaving 12-time host and 'Inside Llewyn Davis' star John Goodman up to bat with Kings of Leon.
