Entertainment One announces that it will release the DVD & Blu-ray of Monsters: Dark Continent on Monday 31st August 2015. A limited edition special steelbook edition alongside a DVD double pack of both the original Monsters and Monsters: Dark Continent will also be available on the same date.
Directed by Tom Green, Executive Produced by Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) and starring Johnny Harris (Atonement, Snow White and the Huntsman, War Horse), Joe Dempsie (Skins, Game of Thrones, The Damned United) and Sam Keeley (This Must Be The Place, What Richard Did, The Borgias), Monsters: Dark Continent is the nerve-shredding sequel to cult sci-fi thriller Monsters.
Ten years on from the events of Monsters, the ‘Infected Zones’ have now spread worldwide. In the Middle East a new insurgency has begun. At the same there has also been a proliferation of Monsters in that region. The Army decide to drab in more numbers to help deal with this insurgency.
After a NASA deep space probe crash landed in Mexico, menacing extra-terrestrial life forms emerged. Now, so-called ‘Infected Zones’ have spread around the globe. With humanity in retreat in many parts of the world, the US is moving to protect its overseas interests. Giant, terrifying sand bugs infest the Arabian Desert, so troops have been sent in to firebomb the creatures, carting their bodies away on giant trucks to be incinerated. In this hostile environment, two soldiers are sent on a high-risk rescue mission.
Gareth Edwards’ original Monsters was nominated for a BAFTA and led to him directing the recent Godzilla reboot and the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One. He returns as executive producer of this gripping continuation of the story. Monsters: Dark Continent is the directorial debut of another up and coming talented filmmaker, Tom Green, who shot much of the film on location in the extraordinary landscapes of Jordan.
