After the massive success of Universal Pictures' Jurassic World at the box office, fans are hungry for more dinosaur action. If you have ever wanted to see what would happen if a swarm of angry pterodactyls attacked a major U.S. city, then you're in luck, because today we have four exclusive photos from 3rd Films' upcoming thriller Terrordactyl, which is set for release sometime in 2016. These images show the chaos these creatures cause in the heart of Hollywood, with one image showing the Capitol Records building on fire, the same building aliens destroyed in the 1996 classic Independence Day.
When a meteor shower rains down outside Los Angeles, Lars (Christopher John Jennings) and Jonas (Jason Tobias), two friends stuck in tired, boring lives, head out to find one and strike it rich. After recovering one, they start being stalked by Terrordactyls, ancient flying reptiles, that launch a full-on assault on the city. They go on the run, trying to survive, where the unlikely heroes, along with Candice (Candice Nunes), a tough-and-sexy bartender, Valerie (Bianca Haase), her sultry roommate, and Sampson (Jack E. Curenton), a constantly drunk and sassy ex-marine, soon discover that there's more to the meteor than meets the eye. They must learn to put their differences aside, and fight back to make the Terrordactyls extinct once again.
The supporting cast is rounded out by David Landry, Victoria Summer, Aubrey Wakeling, Adam Key and Kevin Keator. Don Bitters III and Geoff Reisner make their feature directorial debuts with Terrordactyl. Don Bitters III previously worked as a visual effects artist, working on TV shows such as Betas, House of Cards and new programs Quantico and the highly-anticipated Supergirl.
3rd Films hasn't issued a release date for Terrordactyl quite yet, but the film is expected to arrive sometime in 2016. It isn't known if the project has a distributor lined up yet, or if it will even get a theatrical release. Judging by these photos, this project could be a perfect fit for Syfy and their series of original movies such as the lucrative Sharknado franchise, but we'll have to wait and see where this project lands.
While we wait for more release details and the first trailer, check out our four exclusive photos, along with four more images that debuted on Dread Central back in August.
