With Gareth Edwards’ new film Godzilla hitting theaters tonight, people are once again talking about his first feature, Monsters. Which means it’s a good time to debut the new Monsters: Dark Continent trailer. This sequel features Edwards as an exec producer, along with his Monsters star Scott McNairy. Tom Green directed from a script by Jay Basu, and this time the action moves to the Middle East, where US military forces are dealing with a different sort of “infected zone” full of monsters. Check out the new trailer below.
Seven years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have spread worldwide. Humans have been knocked off the top of the food chain, with disparate communities struggling for survival. American soldiers are being sent abroad to protect US interests from the Monsters, but the war is far from being won.
Noah, a haunted soldier with several tours under his belt, is sent on a mission: an American soldier has gone rogue deep in the Infected Zone, and Noah must reach him and take him out. But when Noah’s unit and transport are destroyed, he finds himself with only a young and inexperienced cadet for company – the brother of the man Noah has been sent to kill.
The two soldiers must go on a life-altering journey through the dark heart of monster territory, accompanied by a young local woman to guide them. By the time the three of them reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront the fear that the true monsters on the planet may not be alien after all.
