Before Gareth Edwards directed Godzilla, he made a fantastic little indie thriller called Monsters. There's a sequel to that movie that was made called Monsters: Dark Continent, and a really cool new trailer was released for it. The sequel is set in the Middle East where the U.S. military is forced in a situation where they have to deal with a horde of monsters in an infected zone. Edwards was an executive producer on the film, and it was directed by Tom Green. The movie looks like it will be pretty awesome. I really liked what I saw in this trailer, and I'm excited to see more from the movie. Here's the synopsis:
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.
There's no U.S. date set yet, but thanks to IGN for the trailer!
