A new United States poster for Gareth Edwards‘ upcoming independent creature movie, Monsters, has been released online.
The movie tells the story of a journalist who needs to find his boss’s daughter and bring her home, which requires navigation through a quarantined zone in Central America where alien creatures crash-landed within a NASA probe six years prior and have evolved into incredible and dangerous beings that both the American and Mexican military forces struggle to find a way to contain.
We recently shared with you a trailer and clip from the movie (Read: Watch Now: â€˜Monstersâ€™ Trailer & Clip Offer â€˜District 9â€² Vibes ), which is said to have only had a budget of around $15,000, give or take. The movie is set to premiere in limited release on October 29, 2010.

Starring Scoot McNairy (â€œIn Search Of A Midnight Kissâ€) and Whitney Able (â€œAll The Boys Love Mandy Laneâ€).
The breakout hit of this years SXSW, Gareth Edwardsâ€™ groundbreaking new film is as much a poignant contemporary romance as it is an epic science fiction adventure. Shot with just a five person crew and a cast of two, Gareth Edwardsâ€™ team traveled through Guatemala, Belize and Mexico, finding and utilizing their locations and supporting actors as they went. The result is a film as cutting edge as it is classically composed, as emotionally satisfying as it is visually stunning, and the bold announcement of a major new talent.
Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creaturesâ€¦ Our story begins when a jaded US journalist (McNairy) begrudgingly agrees to find his bosses daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.
