I remain concerned that the marketing for Monsters is going to eventually disappoint people by pitching a much larger scale movie than Gareth Edwards made, but I must admit that I do love this new US one sheet for it (check it out in full below). Luckily the official synopsis tempers any lofty expectations for a full bore alien invasion movie:

"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 boss' daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border."

Magnolia will be putting Monsters in theaters this October 29th. I highly recommend you check it out when they do.
