Almost a year after its big Netflix debut after the Super Bowl last year, the Paramount thriller The Cloverfield Paradox is finally coming home on Blu-ray and DVD this week, with it available for purchase on February 5. Today, we have an exclusive look at the movie, which goes behind the scenes with actress Zhang Ziyi.
Zhang Ziyi is seen working in a giant water tank during one of the thriller's most climactic moments. It was a challenge to shoot, and it also required a lot of exercise. The actress had this to say about her time spent on set.
"I have never acted in this type of film before. I was very curious about it. I have some intense underwater scenes. Two days of shooting in a small tank. It was tough because you have to carry weights in the water. You have to do a lot of stuff in the water. For me it was kind of like exorcise. It was also unique to see. When Julius asked me to come and join the fun, he said 'You will be kickass.' I said, 'Yes, I will do it.'"
