Mayhem 2014: ‘Monsters – Dark Continent’ Review

4 November 2014 11:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Johnny Harris, Sam Keeley, Joe Dempsie, Sofia Boutella, Kyle Soller, Nicholas Pinnock, Parker Sawyers, Michaela Coel, Rajinikanth, Jesse Nagy | Written by Tom Green, Jay Basu | Directed by Tom Green

Back in 2010, the Mayhem Festival hosted a screening of Gareth Edwards’ micro budget debut Monsters. Edwards was in attendance and took part in both a Q&A, and held a “masterclass” session in which he discussed the approach he’d taken to creating such an ambitious picture on such a low budget. It was a fascinating insight, and a privilege to listen to such an energetic, enthusiastic young director. Flash forward to 2014, and things are looking very different for that young director. He’s already released his updated Godzilla – a film which shares a significant amount of DNA with Monsters – and is moving on to both a Godzilla sequel, and an as yet untitled Star Wars spin off feature. Not bad at all. »

‘Monsters: Dark Continent’ Review: Not Even Aliens Can Make This Metaphor All That Meaningful

27 October 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Gareth Edwards’ 2010 film Monsters presents a refreshingly subtle allegory via the slow-building romance of two developing characters amid gorgeous cinematography and a world with a growing extraterrestrial population. Edwards went the Godzilla route for his follow-up and passed the sequel torch to first-time film director Tom Green for Monsters: Dark Continent. Green frustratingly takes Dark Continent in a grandiose political direction resulting in a film that lacks nuance and the specifics to back it up. Ten years after Monsters, the Middle East had become the new “infected zone” in need of some good ‘ole American intervention. The United States has been dropping bombs on the worst of the infected region in an attempt to eradicate the creatures unsurprisingly killing innocent civilians in the process. This logically makes the locals hate Americans even more, and the ongoing war in the Middle East now has a whole new level of tension.

Monsters Dark Continent review: 'A crushing disappointment' - Lff 2014

17 October 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Tom Green; Screenwriters: Tom Green, Jay Basu; Starring: Johnny Harris, Sam Keeley, Joe Dempsie, Kyle Soller, Nicholas Pinnock, Parker Sawyers; Running time: 123 mins; Certificate: 15

Produced on a shoestring budget with prosumer camera gear and bedroom-made digital effects, Monsters was a minor miracle of a film. Its director Gareth Edwards is now in charge of the Godzilla franchise and working on a Star Wars spinoff, and it's easy to see why when you look back at his 2010 breakthrough. Focusing on two lost souls wandering through Central America's infected zone after an alien invasion, it juxtaposed an intimate human story with bigger sci-fi ambition. Terrence Malick meets monsters from outer space.

Unfortunately, all this subtlety goes out the window for sequel Monsters: Dark Continent, which chooses to make war not love. Edwards remains as executive producer, but directing chores are handed over to Misfits helmer Tom Green, who co-writes with Jay Basu. »

Sitges 2014 Review: Monsters: Dark Continent, An Intense Yet Alienating Ordeal

13 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Four years after Gareth Edwards exploded onto the sci-fi scene with his inventive and industrious indie alien invasion flick Monsters, first-time director Tom Green delivers a sequel that bears little resemblance to the original, in tone, content or invention.Reportedly set 10 years after the events of the first film, Monsters: Dark Continent introduces us to a tight-knit unit of Us Army recruits, headed to the Middle East to continue an unspecified conflict. Parkes (Sam Keeley) and his buddies ship out for their first tour, only to be greeted by Staff Sergeant Frater (Johnny Harris), a shredded and shellshocked commanding officer barely clinging to his sanity.Inevitably, the unit's largely irrelevant mission goes awry, and Parkes, Frater and the dwindling number of surviving teammates must successfully traverse...

Film Review: ‘Monsters: Dark Continent’

12 October 2014 7:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The slippery, multi-tentacled creatures seen in Gareth Edwards’ “Monsters” have adapted to Earth’s harshest environments, migrating from their Central American infected zone to other parts of the planet in “Monsters: Dark Continent.” Not so much a sequel as another stultifying character drama set in a world overrun by aliens, this 10-years-later spinoff switches directors and genres, as first-timer Tom Green (building on experience from British TV’s “Misfits” and “Blackout”) helms a taxingly over-earnest war movie set in an unspecified Middle Eastern country, where American soldiers deal with insurgents while the menacing MTRs (as they’re now called) lumber about in the background.

Though the human characters from “Monsters” are long gone and only a modified version of the creatures remain, Green’s film should benefit from brand recognition worldwide, sparking international sales and audience curiosity for a film that otherwise wouldn’t much interest moviegoers.

Monsters: Dark Continent Gets Its World Premiere

9 October 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Last year, Empire hosted the BFI London Film Festival's Laugh Gala.

Cast, crew and an array of expectant eyeballs were in attendance for the film’s world premiere.Co-writer / director Tom Green was on hand to introduce his cast of G.I.s and his loyal production partners at Vertigo Films, before smashing a metaphorical champagne bottle on the IMAX screen and launching his extra-terrestrial mayhem out into the world.Unlike Gareth EdwardsMonsters, this one is a straight-up war film that by turn channels The Hurt Locker, Generation Kill and Tremors.

24 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Game of Thrones actor Richard Dormer and Harry Potter's Michael Gambon can be seen in a second promo for the crime thriller, which also stars Jessica Raine (Call the Midwife) and Johnny Harris (the This Is England series).

DS also has a behind-the-scenes video teaser, in which Fortitude executive producer Patrick Spence discusses the 12-parter's "unsettling tone".

Fortitude centres on a mysterious death in the Arctic Circle and has been shot on location in Iceland and the UK.

Devised by Low Winter Sun writer Simon Donald, the series will air on Sky Atlantic in 2015.

Gotham, Peaky Blinders, The Flash: 17 autumn TV shows you will love

15 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The evenings are getting shorter, you've already seen the first festive cards for sale at your local supermarket and The X Factor is back on Saturday nights. To borrow a phrase - winter is coming.

But don't despair, because there is much more to autumn TV in 2014 than Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell bickering over a bunch of karaoke singers. Don't believe us? Check out our list of 17 must-watch shows, which mean that you might as well cancel your plans until Christmas.

1. Glue - E4

A bloke from Rizzle Kicks, a writer from This Is England and lots of horses. It doesn't sound like an obvious hit, but Glue is most definitely worth getting excited about.

Skins crossed with Midsomer Murders and an added sinister, bleak edge, is probably the best description for this eight-parter, which will have you hooked from its full-on (and full frontal) opening sequence.

Latest ‘Monsters: Dark Continent’ UK Trailer

2 September 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Gareth Edwards may be tangling with bigger monsters and franchises in the form of Godzilla and Star Wars, but his very own Monsters continues forward in the form of Monsters: Dark Continent, directed by Tom Green. Green is responsible for some of the best episodes of the fantastic first two seasons of Misfits so hopefully his style will translate well to the monster focused sequel. Those worried about Edwards’ departure should note that he has given the project his full blessing and has even stated “I better watch my back,” in terms of the sequel’s quality. There’s still a lot of human drama in this sequel, as a group of soldiers venture into areas swarming with monsters, but we also see a lot more of the monsters themselves. Skins and Game Of Thrones star Joe Dempsie, leads the cast in what looks to be a genuine extension of the original. »

Watch: UK Trailer for 'Monsters: Dark Continent' Heads into Combat

2 September 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"Killin' martians, baby." The most recent trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent, the sequel to Godzilla director Gareth Edwards' breakthrough indie sensation, showed off the larger scale story at the center of the follow-up. Now we get to see even more action as we follow a group of soldiers tasked with taking down some of the creatures across the globe. Thankfully though, it doesn't seem like they've completely thrown out the character-driven angle that made the first film so great as there seem to be hints of drama akin to Zero Dark Thirty or Black Hawk Down. This actually looks pretty decent, so we hope it ends up in the Us. Here's the new UK trailer for Tom Green's Monsters: Dark Continent from Vertigo Films UK: Monsters: Dark Continent is the sequel to Gareth Edwards' Monsters. Tom Green ("Misfits") makes his feature directorial debut with a script from Jay Basu. »

New Clip For Monsters: Dark Continent Takes The Alien Action Global

2 September 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Vertigo Films has debuted an all-new trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent, the anticipated sequel to 2010’s beloved cult hit that is due to release later this year.

With Gareth Edwards’ upcoming directing slate brimming with blockbuster projects, Vertigo Films has passed the directing torch over to relative newcomer Tom Green — who previously worked on hit UK TV show, Misfits. And, in order to whet the appetites of eager fans, the studio also posted a brief synopsis for the upcoming sci-fi continuation.

Two soldiers embark on a life-altering mission through the dark heart of monster territory in the deserts. By the time they reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront the fear that fighting the monsters is just the beginning of their war.”

Clearly, much has changed since that ill-fated and wayward Nasa probe crash-landed in the Mexican desert. In fact, Monsters: Dark Continent is set to take »

New Trailer For Monsters: The Dark Continent

2 September 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The handiwork of a debutant director, Tom Green, and shot on location, in Jordan, with a small cast and big ambitions, Monsters: Dark Continent shares many things with Gareth Edwards’ original film. That DNA extends, of course, to the tentacle-y aliens themselves, flaunted in all their extra-terrestrial magnificence in the movie’s new trailer.Set ten years after Monsters, the Edwards exec-produced ‘continuation’ heads east, where a new strain of alien sand bugs have taken up icky residence. Combat troops Noah (Johnny Harris), Frankie (Joe Dempsie) and Michael (Sam Keeley) are in on the bug hunt across Arabian deserts and into the maws of death.With a whole mess of years elapsed since that Nasa probe crash-landed in Latin America, the aliens have adapted efficiently to their new environment. Environments, actually. There are now infected zones dotted across the globe and the idea of harmonious co-existence, touched on in the first film, »

Ahead of its release this November, a new trailer has arrived online for Monsters: Dark Continent, director Tom Green’s follow-up to Gareth Edwards’ cult 2010 breakthrough Monsters, and you can check it out below after the official synopsis….

Ten years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have now spread worldwide. In the Middle East a new insurgency has begun. At the same time there has also been a proliferation of Monsters in that region. The Army decide to draft in more numbers to help deal with this insurgency.

We follow four fresh new recruits from Detroit as they all excitedly look forward to performing what they were trained to do. At first it all seems like a game to them but things quickly change when they are given a special mission: to rescue five soldiers who have been lost deep in the Infected Zone.
