We were beginning to think everyone had forgotten about Monsters: Dark Continent, the sequel to Gareth Edwards’ original alien/monster/plants movie Monsters…
But lo and behold, here’s a new trailer and image. And while it looks a little gung-ho, it does lokk very impressive too.
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.
Monsters: Dark Continent was directed by Tom Green, executive produced by Gareth Edwards and stars Johnny Harris, Sam Keeley, Sofia Boutella and Joe Dempsie.
It arrives on earth on April 17th, 2015
