Over the last few days, you may have seen promos from Netflix for the sixth installment of the Cliff Beasts movie franchise. If you’re wondering why you’ve never heard of the first five films, that’s because they don’t actually exist!
The Cliff Beasts promos — which include a teaser, a timeline video, a retrospective and posters — are actually for the new Judd Apatow movie called The Bubble. The clever marketing advertises the movies within the movie.
In Apatow’s The Bubble, which may be arriving on the streaming service on April 1st, the cast and crew of the Cliff Beasts blockbuster action franchise attempt to shoot a sequel while quarantining at a posh hotel.
Judd Apatow serves as director, co-writer and producer via his Apatow Productions. Pam Brady (Hamlet 2, South Park) is the co-writer. The executive producers are Barry Mendel, Donald Sabourin and Brady.
For the fun of it, this is how Netflix describes Cliff Beasts 6: The Battle for Everest – Memories of a Requiem (pfew!), followed by the posters and more info on each installment.
“Humankind is threatened once again by a dinosaur species: Cliff Beasts. The team must reunite, after 5 long years, to battle the Cliff Beasts – but this time on Mount Everest.
“Cliff Beasts 6: The Battle for Everest – Memories of a Requiem finally arrives in theaters on Friday, April 1, meaning fans get to catch up with Dr. Hal Packard and the ragtag group of brave scientists and adventurers that have made the Cliff Beasts franchise so successful.”
Before the heroic escapes… Before the thrilling science-based action… Before the heartbreaking deaths then resurrections then deaths again…
Relive the epic sci-fi franchise starting with the 2009 original where mankind became threatened by a new kind of beast.
It’s urbanites vs. herbivores and also carnivores when Dr. Packard’s team seeks to scrape the sky of Cliff Beasts in the big city.
The Cliff Beasts return — and are killed again — in the critically-seen sequel.
Following the destruction of Scarsdale, the team faces a new species of Cliff Beast emerging… from the deep!
The Beasts say ahoy to a titillating tidal wave of underwater dinosaur fights.
True Beasties have seen all five directors’ cuts of the fourth installment, which finds the Beasts attacking Beijing for creative reasons and not a blatant attempt to reach the Chinese market.
Notably, CB4 is also the last film to star Carol Cobb before her departure.
After accidentally turning off Earth’s gravity at the end of Beijing Beast, the Beasts had nowhere to go but up — to space! — in the cosmic crown jewel of the summer of 2019.
So get ready, 2022. Carol Cobb renegotiates her way back onto the team — alongside fresh faces Dieter Bravo and Kristal Kris — in this spring’s hotly-acknowledged tentpole.
Shot entirely during Covid. Coming April 1.
