Great Featurette for Gareth Edwards' 'Monsters' to Check Out
After months of waiting, Gareth Edwards' fantastic low budget sci-fi flick Monsters (watch the trailer) has finally started playing OnDemand (on your TV at home) thanks to Magnolia Pictures. They've been putting out tons of clips and promotion for the movie recently, but I found a featurette (via Vlicious) that I thought was good enough to feature this weekend. Everyone has probably heard that Monsters was supposedly shot on a $15,000 shoestring budget and this video gives you a brief look at what that was like and how Edwards and his cast/crew shot this. There's also another different featurette you can see here. Check this out below!
Watch the new featurette for Gareth Edwards' Monsters:
Monsters is written, produced and directed by Gareth Edwards, a big up-and-coming filmmaker who shot this on a shoestring budget in Mexico and did all of the visual effects on his own computer. The movie stars Scoot McNairy, who I've actually seen in commercials recently, and Whitney Able. Here's the basic concept: "Six years after Earth has suffered an alien invasion, a cynical journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through an infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border." It's a totally amazing film that I loved when I first saw it in Cannes. Monsters is available OnDemand now and hits theaters October 29th.
