It’s called Monsters. And with a budget of just $15 million (yeah I know…just, hah!…but that’s cheap by Hollywood standards….really), extra terrestrials, and a gritty realistic look I suppose it was inevitable that I thought of District 9 when I saw the trailer.
Six years ago previously, a NASA probe returning to earth with samples of an alien life form, crashed over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear, and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”… The story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.
Yup, might have to see this one.
