Fans are still trying to decipher all the clues from The Cloverfield Paradox, a new installment in the Cloverfield franchise just released on Netflix after the Super Bowl. No one was expecting the newest episode to be released when it was. In fact, most media publications expected the movie to come out in April. But we were excited to see that all our predictions were wrong and the movie is now here. But what is the timeline for the movie? How does it fit with the chronology of the rest of the movies? Read on to learn all about the chronology from the movie. This article has spoilers for all three Cloverfield movies.
The producers of The Cloverfield Paradox haven’t come right out and shared the exact chronology of the movies in the franchise and the scenes in the movie. But based on fan theories and clues hidden in the series, we’ve come up with a best guess. And it involves multiple dimensions and timelines.
Chronologically speaking, Cloverfield happens first, then 10 Cloverfield Lane, and then The Cloverfield Paradox. But certain events in The Cloverfield Paradox actually cause a backwards causality, meaning they create time paradoxes with the future actually affecting the past. This can only be reasoned out logically by assuming we’re dealing with multiple timelines and dimensions. So, let’s take things a little differently. Note: This timeline is based on the idea that the Shepard accelerator ripped a hole in the spacetime continuum and affected multiple universes, even reaching into the past.
In the sense of cause-and-effect, the first thing to happen occurs in The Cloverfield Paradox. The world is very low on power and on the verge of a huge world war. In a last-ditch effort to create free energy, they try to start a particle accelerator in space. But just as was warned, it created a “Cloverfield Paradox” and ripped open the space-time continuum. This caused the following:
The space station and accelerator were sent to a parallel dimension, where they fought to get back to the prime universe.
The spacetime rip sent a monster back in time, either to 2008 where it wreaked havoc in Cloverfield, or before 2008 where companies experimented on it and then it wreaked havoc in Cloverfield.
The spacetime rip sent a different species of monsters (i.e. aliens) to 10 Cloverfield Lane, which occurs at some point later than Cloverfield.
The spacetime rip also sent full-sized, huge …
