New Trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent
I hated Godzilla but I enjoyed Gareth Edwards' Monsters. It made sense for me that Monsters focused on the humans. It was a small budget, Indie film. I stand by my disgust at Godzilla though. With a movie like that, I want to see more of the monsters and less of the humans. AND if you have to make it more about the humans then their characters and storylines need to be worthwhile. With Monsters: Dark Continent I can already tell there is a bigger budget and will be more monsters. Edwards isn't directing this but rather is just an executive producer. I'm not delusional enough not to know where the focus will be in this movie and I'm fine with that. For me, what works in Monsters doesn't work for a Godzilla movie (at least not one that I want to see). I think the focus of both films should be different. To be honest if Monsters: Dark Continent is like what Godzilla 2014 was, then I actually might enjoy it. That might seem weird but logically it makes sense to me. I think these movies lend more for the humans being the focus than Godzilla does. But we'll see.
[quote]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.[/quote]
