Looking for a handy list of the science fiction films still to look forward to this year? Then here's the post for you...
The year's nearly half over, and we've already experienced a range of genre movies, some great, some less so.

Here's a pick of 11 of our favourites, plus a selection of honourable mentions at the end, which includes films that don't yet have a firm release date in the Us or UK.
In terms of sheer entertainment value, Edge Of Tomorrow could be this summer's dark horse. That it's based on a relatively obscure Japanese novel (All You Need Is Kill - the film's original, far less »

In Monsters: Dark Continent, the sequel to director Gareth Edwards’ 2010 feature film debut Monsters, the soldiers huddled inside a Humvee have a lot to worry about.

An atmospheric new trailer has landed online for Monsters: Dark Continent. Dusty, ominous and offering a first glimpse at the sequel's new 'sand bug' monsters, it's like Gareth Edwards' first film has collided with The Hurt Locker and Cloverfield. In other words: it looks freaking awesome. Set seven years after the first film, Monsters: DC finds the world now made up of a patchwork of 'infected zones', through which two soldiers battle for survival. Check out the trailer below... Directed by Tom Green and starring Johnny Harris...

Just as its creator's latest, Godzilla, hits the big screen, a first proper look at where Gareth Edwards' Monsters go next with the teaser trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent arriving online. 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, has clearly long since been jettisoned in favour of the Starship Troopers approach to extra-terrestrial management.Reads the synopsis: "Two soldiers »
Today we have a full trailer for the upcoming sequel to "Monsters," called "Monsters: Dark Continent," starring Johnny Harris (Welcome To The Punch), Sam Keeley (What Richard Did) and Joe Dempsie ("Game Of Thrones"). Check it out below. Plot: Six years ago, a Nasa probe returning to earth with samples of an alien life form, crashed over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear, and half of Mexico was quarantined as an infected zone. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"... The story begins when a Us journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the Us border. The new movie is directed by Tom Green (Misfits). A release date has yet to be announced. Trailer: »
For obvious reasons, Vertigo have released another trailer for the follow-up to the Gareth Edwards movie Monsters. If you don’t know the story, British filmmaker Gareth Edwards (my personal hero!) created the movie 2010 Monsters completely off his own back, wrote it, directed it, edited and, did all the CG for it and due to its success, caught the eye of Warner Bros. who got him to make their new low-budget movie called Godzilla (out now!)!!
Although Edwards only has an Executive Producing credit for Monsters: Dark Continent, we’re still very excited to see what new director Tom Green will do with the project. The first trailer was released August last year and we’ve not really seen much since but the sequel us set to hit UK cinemas September 26th. The cast includes Johnny Harris (London To Brighton, Welcome To The Punch) Sam Keeley (What Richard Did) and »

A new trailer has been unveiled for Monsters: Dark Continent.
The promo teases new giant sand bugs and alien combat, while a spoken word poem plays in the background.
The film is expected to be released in the UK in September. There is currently no release date set for the Us.
The giant monster movie on everyone’s mind right now is undoubtedly Gareth Edwards’ gritty blockbuster take on Godzilla, which opens in theaters tonight following about a week of steadily strong reviews (including ours). So, in that sense, the timing couldn’t be more perfect for Protagonist Pictures to release the first trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent, a sequel to the indie monster movie that put Edwards on the map.
Sadly, given his commitment to Godzilla, Edwards was unable to return for the follow-up, so Joe Green (Channel 4′s Misfits) is taking over behind the camera. Green is working from a script by the largely unproven Jay Basu (little-seen The Dinosaur Project), with a cast that includes Joe Dempsie (HBO’s Game of Thrones, BBC America’s The Fades), Johnny Harris (The Fades, Snow White & the Huntsman) and Sofia Boutella (Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming The Secret Service).

There has been a lot of talk this week about "Godzilla," and in particular, how the big budget monster movie actually doesn't have all that much of the titular lizard in the actual movie. At least not until the third act, and even then... But for those that saw Gareth Edwards' debut film "Monsters," it's no surprise, as that low budget thriller also kept the creature at bay (though with arguably more satisfying results once it was revealed). Anyway, a sequel to "Monsters" is on the way, but Edwards is only executive producing with a whole fleet of people ready to bring more scares. Tom Green ("Misfits," "Blackout") gets behind the camera for this Jay Basu penned story which now reorients the focus to the Middle East, where the U.S. military is confronting another "infected zone." And basically, it's a lot of monsters emerging from the sand with »

In an attempt to cash in on the buzz surrounding the release of Godzilla this weekend, the sequel to director Gareth Edwards indie sci-fi flick Monsters has just unveiled a trailer showing off more of the expanded world. Monsters: Dark Continent focuses on another Infected Zone in the Middle East, and this time it looks like we're spending most of our time with a military unit in the area. What I really like is the grounded approach to how society is living as there are monsters all around the world. There's a shot of a dogfight facing what appears to be a small monster, and this might not be too bad of a sequel. Watch now! Here's the trailer for Tom Green's Monsters: Dark Continent from IGN: Monsters: Dark Continent is the sequel to Gareth Edwards' Monsters. Tom Green ("Misfits") makes his feature directorial debut with a script from Jay Basu. »

Review Mark Harrison 15 Apr 2014 - 06:37
A horror movie set in space? Mark reckons you might find some of the various components of The Last Days On Mars a little familiar...
It wouldn't have been hard to slap a “The Thing Meets Gravity” or a “28 Days Later in space” strapline on the marketing campaign for The Last Days Of Mars, but it's arrived with markedly less fanfare than most mainstream horror movies released this year, pushed back from its intended release last September.
The film is a nuts-and-bolts sci-fi horror flick that played out of competition at last year's Cannes film festival, during directors' fortnight, but it's the interesting way in which it's been executed that marks it for such distinction, more than any real sort of innovation or unpredictability.
Based on The Animators, a 1975 short story by Sydney J. Bounds, the film takes place over the last 19 hours of »
Director: Ruairi Robinson.
Running Time: 98 minutes.
Synopsis: A group of astronaut explorers succumb one by one to a mysterious and terrifying force while collecting specimens on Mars.
The Last Days On Mars revolves around the first manned mission to the red planet, presumably set sometime in the near future. In literally the final hours of their six-month long mission, a group of astronauts make a groundbreaking discovery: fossilised evidence of bacterial life. Intent on not returning to their home planet empty-handed, the group undertake a rogue mission to collect samples, and all kinds of hell breaks loose as a mysterious presence starts to off them one by one.

On the last day of the first manned mission to Mars, a crew member of Tantalus Base believes he has made an astounding discovery – fossilized evidence of bacterial life. Unwilling to let the relief crew claim all the glory, he disobeys orders to pack up and goes out on an unauthorized expedition to collect further samples. But a routine excavation turns to disaster when the porous ground collapses, and he falls into a deep crevice and near certain death. His devastated colleagues attempt to recover his body. However, when another vanishes they start to suspect that the life-form they have discovered is not yet dead. As the group begins to fall apart it seems their only hope is the imminent arrival of the relief ship Aurora. Directed by Ruairi Robinson, »
