Gareth Edwards' Monsters

If you followed my coverage of the Cannes Film Festival this year, you may remember hearing about a sci-fi film I caught while there called Monsters. If you haven't heard about it, listen up, because this is important news and you won't want to miss seeing this great movie in theaters. SlashFilm says that Magnet Releasing, the genre arm of Mark Cuban's Magnolia Pictures, has set an October 29th release date for Monsters. The indie distributor picked up the film after it's debut at the SXSW Film Festival, which is where all the buzz for this sci-fi indie film first began (read my review). I'm assuming this will be a limited release with expansion.

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:
