Infected Zone: Awesome Quad UK Teaser Poster for Monsters

I'm still not too fond of that title, but I am very fond this kick ass poster. Empire debuted the first UK quad teaser poster for Gareth Edwards' sci-fi film Monsters, which we've been raving about since first seeing it in Cannes. It was just given an October 29th release in the US a few weeks ago, and is due out in the UK in November, but they beat Magnolia to the punch with this first poster. I personally love these gritty, sign-like posters (especially for this film) and this one reminds me of a mix between 28 Weeks Later and District 9. I hope this gets a few of you more interested in this amazing sci-fi indie. And yes, that is a still from the film.
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 and will be pushing as much as I can through October. Visit the official website: monstersfilm.com.
