Fresh from the inbox, here is the poster art for Monsters, a new science fiction/horror from Magnolia Pictures. In the same vein as District 9 and Cloverfield, this certainly seems promising. Directed by Gareth Edwards, who from what I can tell also does digital FX work, it certainly seems as if this one is going to be quite polished. For those unaware, the plot synopsis is as follows…

Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures… Our story begins when a jaded US journalist (McNairy) begrudgingly agrees to find his boss’ daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.
I’m pretty hyped up from the still photos shown here:
