Vertigo Films has debuted an all-new trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent, the anticipated sequel to 2010’s beloved cult hit that is due to release later this year.
With Gareth Edwards’ upcoming directing slate brimming with blockbuster projects, Vertigo Films has passed the directing torch over to relative newcomer Tom Green — who previously worked on hit UK TV show, Misfits. And, in order to whet the appetites of eager fans, the studio also posted a brief synopsis for the upcoming sci-fi continuation.
“Two soldiers embark on a life-altering mission through the dark heart of monster territory in the deserts. By the time they reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront the fear that fighting the monsters is just the beginning of their war.”
Clearly, much has changed since that ill-fated and wayward NASA probe crash-landed in the Mexican desert. In fact, Monsters: Dark Continent is set to take place a full ten years after the events of the first film and will orbit around a trio of army troops. That trio in question — namely Michael, Franklie and Noah — will be played by Sam Keeley, Joe Dempsie and Snow White and the Huntsman’s Johnny Harris, respectively.
As the title suggests, the misunderstood extra-terrestrials are no longer confined to the militarised state of Mexico; instead, they have extended across the globe where pockets of alien creatures have begun to inadvertently cause havoc. Primarily, Monsters: Dark Continent will take place in the arid region of Jordan where our aforementioned trio will do battle with the elements, local militants and of course, the titular tentacle-y monsters themselves. Co-existence has never been easy, right?
Executive produced by Gareth Edwards, Monsters: Dark Continent will limber into theatres on November 28th, 2014.
