‘Monsters’ Poster Unleashed

Magnet Releasing has unveiled a brand new theatrical poster for the highly-anticipated indie film Monsters, which will be released in theaters on October 29. Click on the new poster image below to access our poster gallery for this new film, directed by Gareth Edwards, and you can read the full synopsis below.

Monsters Poster #3

The breakout hit of this years SXSW, Gareth Edwards' groundbreaking new film is as much a poignant contemporary romance as it is an epic science fiction adventure. Shot with just a five person crew and a cast of two, Gareth Edwards' team traveled through Guatemala, Belize and Mexico, finding and utilizing their locations and supporting actors as they went. The result is a film as cutting edge as it is classically composed, as emotionally satisfying as it is visually stunning, and the bold announcement of a major new talent.

Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures... Our story begins when a jaded US journalist (Scoot McNairy) begrudgingly agrees to find his bosses daughter, a shaken American tourist (Whitney Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.

Monsters was released October 29th, 2010.

        Yes, comparisons to Cloverfield and District 9 will be made, but certain similarities, cliches, and themes run through numerous films of the same genre. Check out the Horror Film Formula for a prime example. Same premise, different levels of gore, partying, hot blondes, and stereotypes.

        As for the poster: It's intriguing and raises anticipation.

            And plus, something is always going to remind you of something.

              As C.S. Lewis said, "Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it."

              Great quote but as time passes it becomes less and less true. Things now adays are original because someone finds a new way to tell an old story.

                    This looks like a Sci-Fi channel original movie.

                        What I like for is how 'well' they tell the story, and if it adds it's own unique twists to classic plots. If it accomplishes that, I can safely say it was good, even if it's been done before to a lesser degree.

                          @Jimthar, this does have similarities with D9, and several other recent films for that matter, but whats wrong with a movie inspired by another movie? Just because they are similar doesn't make a movie unoriginal. Not saying that this film will be original or anything, just saying we can never call anything unoriginal due to a few plot similarities. If that were the case, then a lot of superhero movies are unoriginal. As movie fans you should understand by now that any partially original film we get, we should count as a blessing, as they are getting rarer by the day.

Lewis said, "Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it."

                              I think "fire in the sky" is like the best UFO movie ever made. but others will think im old fashion and give district 9 the win, or transformers, lolz some might even say "independence day" was good. you cant really compare a big monster movie like "cloverfield" or gonzilla cause those ar'nt aliens "signs" was creepy but the story was just flat. so hopfully "monsters" will be a good UFO movie.

                                Everything's a rip off or copy or..."reimagining" eh hm..or something else. And I'll go see it.

                                  Everyone's favorite movie is a rip off or derived from another movie. It's a cold, hard truth.

                                    is it me, or does this sound a lot like DISTRICT 9?? distant location.....small cast....alien 'quarantine zone'.....military control.....lone hero......etc.

                                    sorry but it just sounds like a D9 ripoff to me.

                                        You know what producers and companies do every Monday? They look and see what was the #1 movie was that weekend and they ask themselves what they can do to make a movie that is like the current money maker. In a year or two you'll see flicks like Inception and Avatar.
