New quad UK teaser poster for Gareth Edwards’ MONSTERS
There are few upcoming releases I can recommend as highly as Gareth Edwards' MONSTERS. Team Gordon and the Whale went more than a little nuts for the film at both March's SXSW and June's Los Angeles Film Festival. The film's premise is deceptively simple - in a not-too-distant future, aliens have landed on Earth and been confined in "the infected zone" in the top section of Mexico. Despite the looming specter of such creatures, much of human existence seems to continue with little concern for the (supposedly) confined creatures. Of course, that's a little different when you need to venture through the zone to get to the U.S., and that's just what our thrown-together pairing of Scoot McNairy's Andrew Kaulder and Whitney Able's Samantha Wynden have to do. It's not just a film about aliens - it's much, much more. And to get you excited for the film's October release, we've got a look at new teaser poster from the UK for the flick.
Though the indie probably will not have enough bank behind it to launch a full-scale viral marketing campaign that this new poster would fit nicely into, a la DISTRICT 9, this quad poster is an encouraging start. Not only does it capture the tone of much of the signage you will see within the film, it also gives you a small glimpse of what those titular monsters look like. Check out the full poster after the break!
MONSTERS will see a limited theaterical release on October 29.
