I’ve been a fan of director Gareth Edward’s film Monsters since I first saw the film during SXSW many months ago. I gave it a positive review and was particularly impressed with Edwards’ ability to craft a story, have interesting characters and have cool monsters all in the same film.
In the months following the film’s debut at SXSW it has picked up a distributor, played at several more festivals and should be coming to you soon enough. To help move that along and get you interested, Magnolia Pictures has released the first trailer for the film out into the wilds of the Internet.
In it you get to see a glimpse of what Edwards’ film has to offer and regardless of the comparisons to something like Cloverfield, Monsters deserves to stand on its own eight feet, er, tentacles. Watch the trailer and then watch the movie when you can. You won’t regret taking the chance.
Check out the trailer after the jump. And keep checking back here for all your Monsters info as I will be keeping track of this one and whatever Edwards does next.
