Must Watch! First Epic Us Trailer for Gareth Edwards’ Monsters

Okay, so this movie hit our radar last week or so when we posted the first poster for the film. A breakout hit coming out of this year’s SXSW, newcomer Gareth Edwards’ groundbreaking new film is a poignant, contemporary romance wrapped within an epic science- fiction adventure.

The movie was considered visually stunning, and a bold announcement of a major new talent. I have to say, move the fuck over Neil Blomkamp and Matt Reeves, because your monster/alien flicks do not hold a candle to this masterpiece. I can’t wait to see this film, I mean I can’t wait.

Check out the trailer below and see what I am talking about.

Great First Poster for Gareth Edward’s Monsters

A breakout hit coming out of this year’s SXSW, newcomer Gareth Edwards’ groundbreaking new film is a poignant, contemporary romance wrapped within an epic science-fiction adventure. Shot with just a five person crew and a cast of two, Gareth Edwards’ team traveled through Guatemala, Belize and Mexico, finding and utilizing their locations while supporting actors as they went. The result is a film, “as cutting edge as it is classically composed, as emotionally satisfying as it is visually stunning, and the bold announcement of a major new talent.”

Now Magnolia Pictures has released the first poster for the film, which you can see below. The movie’s plot synopsis is as follows:

HollywoodNews.com: Gareth Edwards’ latest film, “Monster,” has just released the official poster for the film.

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.
