MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT Trailer Features Monsters, Monsters and More Monsters

Part of the reason Gareth EdwardsMonsters was such a remarkable film was because you walked in expecting an action-heavy alien invasion-type movie, but wound up getting a layered, moving relationship drama with the ever-present threat of the title characters relegated to the background.  Not everyone appreciated the unique take, but for those of you who were hoping for more monsters, it looks as though you’ll get your wish in the Monsters sequel, Monsters: Dark Continent.

We’ve got a brand new trailer for the second film and in just over two minutes of footage, there’s already significantly more creatures, action and destruction than in the first one.  Hit the jump to check it all out in the Monsters: Dark Continent trailer for yourself.  The film is due for a theatrical release in the UK on November 28th, but, at the moment, Monsters 2 does not have domestic distribution.

Based on this trailer, Monsters: Dark Continent will take a very different approach to the situation than the first film.  When I first heard about Monsters, I did hope Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able would have more alien encounters while making their way into the US, but I was pleasantly surprised by what I got instead.  After the first film’s success, it is a little disappointing to see the trailer for the sequel essentially doing the exact opposite and absolutely drowning the viewer in creature after creature, but, at the same time, a piece of me still wants to see this play out on a disaster movie level.

However, what we do get in this trailer raises one major concern; will Monsters: Dark Continent wind up with a story and character development deficit due to all the action?  This trailer certainly doesn’t suggest the new narrative’s got anything special about it.
