Empire has a new UK poster and images from writer/director Gareth Edwards’s “Monsters”. It’s a clever little monster movie, kind of a cross between “District 9″ and “War of the Worlds”. The film is due out in limited release October 29th from Magnolia Pictures.
Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures… Our story begins when a jaded US journalist (McNairy) begrudgingly agrees to find his boss’ daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.
Starring Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able.
