When the girl in 10 Cloverfield Lane went upstairs to do a repair she came across a letter that appeared to be from a Japanese company. What did that have to do with the story.


It's an easter egg.

That company is part of the original Cloverfield movie. The company is the one that drills and releases/awakes the Cloverfield monster. The main character was also leaving to work/live in Japan.

The letter has no affect on the plot for 10 Cloverfield Lane. The two movies exist in a parallel dimension of each other, like any number of anthologies (Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, etc).

  • @brettfromla no, it does not. Lane takes place post 2014. Cloverfield in 2008. And Abrams explicitly called it like a Twilight Zone idea. And the director says it's in a different timeline.
