Magnolia Unleashes ‘Monsters’ This Halloween

Magnolia has announced an October 29 Halloween release for Gareth Edwards’ Monsters (review), which premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and this summer’s LAFF. Described more as a sci-fi drama, the pic begins six years after a NASA probe crashes, bringing alien life forms to Earth. A journalist agrees to escort a shaken tourist through an infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border. No trailer has been released, but there is a clip you can check out here.
