10 Cloverfield Lane: JJ Abrams’ nod
Early fans will no doubt have noticed: JJ Abrams places personal winks in all of his works. In addition to references to other films, he systematically places a nod to his grandfather who passed on his passion for cinema to him and gave him his first super-8 camera.
10 Cloverfield Lane is no exception to the rule. So, at the start of the film, Michelle refueled in a gas station called Kelvin. This name appears in several films directed or produced by JJ Abrams. And for good reason, it’s his grandfather’s name : Harry Kelvin. In the movie Mission Impossible 3, Tom Cruise intercepts a letter intended for H. Kelvin.
