Monsters: Dark Continent

In an attempt to cash in on the buzz surrounding the release of Godzilla this weekend, the sequel to director Gareth Edwards indie sci-fi flick Monsters has just unveiled a trailer showing off more of the expanded world. Monsters: Dark Continent focuses on another Infected Zone in the Middle East, and this time it looks like we're spending most of our time with a military unit in the area. What I really like is the grounded approach to how society is living as there are monsters all around the world. There's a shot of a dogfight facing what appears to be a small monster, and this might not be too bad of a sequel. Watch now!

Here's the trailer for Tom Green's Monsters: Dark Continent from IGN:

Monsters: Dark Continent is the sequel to Gareth Edwards' Monsters. Tom Green ("Misfits") makes his feature directorial debut with a script from Jay Basu. Johnny Harris (Welcome To The Punch), Sam Keeley (What Richard Did) and Joe Dempsie ("Game Of Thrones") star in the film which moves the action to  another Infected Zone, a U.S. military-dominated Middle East, where a soldier is looking for his lost comrade. Vertigo Films has slated the sequel for release in the United Kingdom in September of 2014, but there's no indication of when it might make its way to the United States. Stay tuned for anymore updates.

huh, you mean Spring Breakers or the fact that a director who made the 1st movie isn't making the 2nd.... Alien vs Aliens ... all i gotta say

It was cool until they showed the monsters. The good thing about the original was the buildup of tension and suspense by not showing the monsters...

Then the crushing disappointment at the end when you see how stupid they look

they looked like deep sea creatures... hows that stupid.. you must think the monster from Super 8 was amazing... hahahaha

shane willett on May 15, 2014

Yes, deep sea creatures... BUT THEY WERE ON LAND! tentacles can't support that weight. They looked like cheap octopus puppets controlled by an amateur puppeteer. And no I wasn't impressed by the Super 8 alien either.

Super 8 monster was a test, cuz it was bad, it looked like the 1st alien you see in men in black movie or something... I agree the monsters weren't original they looked like a octopus meets jellyfish.. so i can see when an animator creates something, it shows what they are referencing.. But they also looked a lot Chtuthlulu so that was cool ??? sorry you didn;t care for it

It's Cthulhu not Chtuthlulu.

Lagoya on May 15, 2014

12

Um they look a lot better than the monsters in the first film.

Mr Chatterbox on May 15, 2014

100% right you are... you only see the destruction the monsters left behind, it's not until the last 10 minutes you see them at the gas station and your like ' Holy Fuck, run"

shane willett on May 15, 2014

14

not really, at the end you realise that you just wasted an hour and a half of your life just to catch a glimpse of some land octopus.

Lagoya on May 15, 2014

I see your on the Landshark committee, I represent the cephalopod committee and we try, we try....

shane willett on May 15, 2014

AGREED!

The bad thing about the first one was that it was called "Monsters" but hardly had any monsters in it.

Brian Sleider on May 15, 2014

18

Is this gonna be a standup fight or another bughunt?

Dan Hibiki on May 15, 2014

wannabe Starship Troopers

shane willett on May 15, 2014

Was that real? The voiceover sounds like a Ludacris album intro.

Brian Ricci on May 15, 2014

21

This will be terrible just like the first one.

Lagoya on May 15, 2014

22

The first one was good, in the fact that he wrote, directed and edited it all himself.. what have you done with your life.. nothing close to his...

shane willett on May 15, 2014

23

Come on man.. just because he didnt like the film you have to get personal and de-evaluate a guy you dont know? Bad habit.

Welcome to the internet, where if your opinions differ, you are a stupid piece of shit who should never be allowed to speak.

Brian Sleider on May 15, 2014

25

Well lets critique your work... it's like if you have nothing good to say, than shut the fuck up!

shane willett on May 15, 2014

26

So yeh you are either an asshole, stupid, or a troll.

Brian Sleider on May 15, 2014

27

how about a stupid ass troll?, they do exist, rare but are amongst the living,,,

shane willett on May 15, 2014

28

You are welcome to self identify. I will just ignore you like I do that guy who always has a Tom Hardy pic for is avatar.

Brian Sleider on May 15, 2014

Im just messing with you,, i could care a less what you like or don't ... have a good one. Just bored having a go with you.. take care buddy.. just all in internet fun! movies suck, some rule... bam!

shane willett on May 15, 2014

30

no im just having a go, your entitled to your opinion, it's just the last 5 minutes of work... bored ...so I trolled a lil'

shane willett on May 15, 2014

31

No, it's sad when people act like they know cause they saw a bunch of movies or went to art school. I have worked on actual sets, I am currently working on a screenplay, it's not easy, but it is easy to talk shit about a movie.. it's funny how people who have little to no experience or the most experienced ...

shane willett on May 15, 2014

32

I de-evaluate life? Haven't you watched the Cosmos?

shane willett on May 15, 2014

33

And that means what? That no one who hasn't made a movie can critique a movie? Your horse, its too high, get off it. The first one was OK. It is ok to dislike it.

Brian Sleider on May 15, 2014

34

I hate equestrians... they bite

shane willett on May 15, 2014

35

the fucking VO is fucking stupid.... WTF ?

shane willett on May 15, 2014

36

Something we both agree on lol

Lagoya on May 15, 2014

37

Horrible.... how could Gareth Edwards allow this to happen... pure shit, a rap VO about sand bugs... this feels like its going to be a modern day Star Ship Troopers.... as soon as something original happens, money hungry producers who know nothing fuck up a good thing ...

shane willett on May 15, 2014

38

Can't believe Edwards let this happen Trailer's just a vehicle for some dude's rappin' Over clips of a copy of Starship Troopers Ripe for milkin' by them fat-cat producers

Benjamin Hunter on May 15, 2014

shane willett on May 15, 2014

Well that was a shitty trailer, but I am excited to see this. Was hoping for a Sequel hope they gives us more info on the monsters, and more monster action.

Brian Sleider on May 15, 2014

41

Whoa, Sandworms! I hate em myself!

Rock n Rollllll on May 15, 2014

42

That VO is terrible.

DAVIDPD on May 15, 2014

43

I really liked the first one. Not sure about this one though. And that VO, geez.

Nielsen700 on May 15, 2014

44

movie looks good. the ghetto narration is AWFUL.

dan on May 15, 2014

45

the VO is fucking HILARIOUS. MONSTERS was magical because Edwards transcended the shoddy vfx, acting and plot by presenting his incredible talent as a one man show.
