Official Synopsis (Slashfilm)
Written & directed by Gareth Edwards
Starring Scoot McNairy (“In Search Of A Midnight Kiss”) and Whitney Able (“All The Boys Love Mandy Lane”)
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 bosses daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.
Magnolia Pictures’ genre arm Magnet will release the movie in New York and Los Angeles on October 29th 2010.
This movie looks EPIC, and what little I’ve seen of the creatures reminds me of H.P. Lovecrafts Cthulhu. Tentacled horrors from space anyone? Sign me up I want to see this movie.
