Monsters Dark Continent directed by first timer Tom Green is the much-anticipated continuation to Gareth Edwards’ critically acclaimed film Monsters is out in UK cinemas now.
Directed by BAFTA winner Tom Green in his debut feature, Monsters Dark Continent stars Johnny Harris (Welcome to the Punch, ‘This is England’ series, London To Brighton), Sam Keeley (What Richard Did; forthcoming Ron Howard feature Heart of The Sea), Joe Dempsie (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Skins’), Kyle Soller (Anna Karenina), Parker Sawyers (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) and Nicholas Pinnock (Captain America: The First Avenger).
Gareth Edwards who has been very supportive of Tom Green adds: “Monsters was a very personal film to me, so it’s been a surreal honour to have such talented filmmakers and actors work so hard to create such a beautiful and heartfelt sequel. Tom Green has taken the organic filmmaking spirit of the original and created something very unique and incredibly bold. I think people will be very surprised by the film. It is uncompromising in its storytelling and as a result creates a very realistic and believable world. The visual effects and cinematography are impeccable; there isn’t a bad frame in the movie. This combined with such soulful performances from the main cast, makes for a really impressive debut film… Think I better watch my back!”
Ten years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have now spread worldwide. In the Middle East a new insurgency has begun. At the same time there has also been a proliferation of Monsters in that region. The Army decide to draft in more numbers to help deal with this insurgency.
We follow four fresh new recruits from Detroit as they all excitedly look forward to performing what they were trained to do. At first it all seems like a game to them but things quickly change when they are given a special mission: to rescue five soldiers who have been lost deep in the Infected Zone.
The main focus of their mission is human but they are instructed to take down any creatures that get in the way along the route. We have generally learned to live along side these giant creatures as much as any other land based animal. The military only strike to control numbers. Venturing deep into the IZ, the young troops embark on a life-altering mission through the heart of monster territory. By the time they reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront themselves with the true horrors of eradicating the alien threat.
Produced by Allan Niblo and James Richardson (Monsters, The Sweeney) of Vertigo Films and Rory Aitkin and Ben Pugh of 42 (Welcome to the Punch, Shifty) the screenplay is written by Jay Basu and Tom Green. Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla), Scoot McNairy (Monsters, Argo, 12 Years A Slave) serve as Executive Producers.
