Shadow within the Cloud Trailer: Chloe Grace Moretz fights monsters in World Struggle II

Chloe Grace Moretz kicks a serious bum in her new action film.


Vertical Entertainment has released the official trailer for the WWII science fiction action film Shadow in the cloud. The film is directed and co-written by Roseanne Liang and Stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Nick Robinson, Beulah Koale, Taylor John Smith, and Callan Mulvey. The official trailer comes just a week after Moretz shared the Shadow in the Cloud teaser on Twitter.


The trailer for Shadow in the Cloud gives us a longer glimpse into the film directed by Moretz. Just based on what is offered to us, I cannot deny that the premise looks fascinating. We meet Maude Garrett (Moretz), a British pilot and mechanic who is tasked with maintaining an important package. She hops with a ragged, all-male pilot team, which Maude brings under the aircraft in a special cockpit, from which she has a view of the airspace below. When Maude tries to hold her own against the boys’ misogynistic rifts, she also has a battle with enemy planes and gremlin creatures trying to get on board. It is very reminiscent of that William Shatner Twilight zone Episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” except Maude has a few types of monsters to fight.

When Collider’s own Perri Nemiroff spoke to Moretz and Liang at TIFF last year, the actor shared why she boarded Shadow in the Cloud.

“I’m a bit sadistic. I enjoy jumping into projects that I know are going to be a little rough, that I know are going to kind of kick my butt. I think that’s kind of Business card for me. Oh great! Will it be brutal for me to jump in this one? Let’s get started! ”Honestly I was excited! I think Roseanne kind of explained my brain as a bit of a technical brain, and I agree with that completely too, and I think this type of movie really got me to sink my teeth into this side of balancing the plates of pretty much playing alone with just voices in my head, literally trying to exist in a tiny bowl and making it interesting and being able to move the story forward with very minimal things around me. ”

Shadow in the Cloud arrives January 1, 2021 on video on request. Check out the official trailer below. For more information, visit Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video in December.
