This is not like District 9. It has no similarities to District 9 at all. But it's as good as District 9. Just wanted to get that out of the way. Magnet has debuted the second trailer for Gareth Edwards' incredible low-budget alien sci-fi film Monsters on Apple. It's a tough movie to sell, and they're really overhyping the action, but it's not actually an action flick. The story is actually about these two people, the characters and what they go through, not the action and aliens killing people and so on. That said, it's a brilliant film and still one of my top suggestions to see. Just make sure you don't go in expecting something like D9. Check out the trailer!

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.
