It was the impressive 2010 film Monsters that led to Gareth Edwards landing in the director’s chair for next month’s Godzilla, and this year the film gets a sequel in the form of Monsters: Dark Continent, which Protagonist Pictures is bringing to the Cannes Film Festival.
While we wait, check out some images of the titular beasts, one courtesy of our friends over on Bloody Disgusting, along with the teaser trailer!
Television director Tom Green (no relation to the funnyman of the same name) is at the helm of Monsters: The Dark Continent while original director Gareth Edwards executive produces along with actor Scoot McNairy.
Producers are James Richardson and Allan Niblo for Vertigo and Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken for Between the Eyes. Johnny Harris (Welcome to the Punch), Sam Keeley (What Richard Did), and Joe Dempsie (“Game of Thrones”) star.
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.
