Six years after alien was found in our solar system. The ship that was bringing a sample of the life back to earth by NASA crashes in Central America. This is the tale of the fallout of the crash.
After the probe crashed in Mexico, new forms of life started to pop up. Half the country was then put into quarantine as an infected area. Monsters tells the story of a journalist who takes a tourist through the infected area. It’s like District 9, only probably not as good.
No trailer, but there is this film clip:
Writer/director Gareth Edwards made the film on a relatively small budget (look at all those big name actors!) but was still able to make the special effects look professional. The film is reportedly more of a romance with monsters in the world around the couple than a true monster film.
Who’s It For?
No word of rating yet, but probably R.
Movie Release Date
October 29, 2010
Who’s In It?
Whitney Able … Samantha Wynden
Scoot McNairy … Andrew Kaulder
Director Gareth Edwards created all the special effects on his laptop. Check out the clip. How the heck did he do that? I can barely understand the wizardry that makes naked ladies appear.
Skyline, District 9
What’s Good About It?
Smaller budgets don’t always equate to crap films. With the advancements in technology over the last few years, more and more filmmakers have access to quality special effects on a shoestring budget. The clip looks good. Hopefully the whole film is of the same quality.
What’s Bad About It?
There isn’t too much known right now. It did screen at SXSW, so you can find some reviews online, but I’m avoiding them for now. I want to see it for myself.
Our Clever Prediction
Low box office, but there is a chance. I’m pretty sure the film is getting a wide release in October, so it could take off and become the next Paranormal Activity. I’m recommending you see it. And if you’re a pretty lady, I suggest you see it with me.
Darn, almost made it through the whole preview in a serious manner. Sorry Richie.
