Episode 03: Cloverfields

On the eve of a new film, hosts Coleman and Kyle dive into the cult phenomenon 'Cloverfield' and its impact on the film industry and giant monster movies in general. We break down some rumors and now confirmed spoilers for '10 Cloverfield Lane,' and can't help but be a little angry at the bait and switch producer J.J. Abrams and company Bad Robot have pulled on us. Either way, we're excited to see the new film and to have this series continue, even if we're hesitant on the direction it might be going. At least it's given everyone an excuse to go back and check out the excellent first film!

Break out your night vision equipped handy-cams and watch out for falling debris in this week's exciting episode of Tokyo Lives: A Giant Monsters Podcast where we discuss all things 'Cloverfield!'
