Before Gareth Edwards joined the likes of Godzilla, he directed a lower budget monster movie with Monsters.
The movie saw Earth invaded by giant alien monsters and followed two people as they made their way through the infected zone.
It wasn’t bad, and now we learn that a sequel is in the works with a new director attached, Tom Green.
The first trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent has been released. The movie takes place seven years following Monsters this time centering on a pair of soldiers.
Seven years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have spread worldwide. Humans have been knocked off the top of the food chain, with disparate communities struggling for survival. American soldiers are being sent abroad to protect US interests from the Monsters, but the war is far from being won. Noah, a haunted soldier with several tours under his belt, is sent on a mission: an American soldier has gone rogue deep in the Infected Zone, and Noah must reach him and take him out. But when Noah’s unit and transport are destroyed, he finds himself with only a young and inexperienced cadet for company – the brother of the man Noah has been sent to kill. The two soldiers must go on a life-altering journey through the dark heart of monster territory, accompanied by a young local woman to guide them. By the time the three of them reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront the fear that the true monsters on the planet may not be alien after all.
