Good news: Gareth Edwards' well-reviewed film about aliens quarantined in Mexico, Monsters, is getting a limited release. The film, which generated plenty of awesome buzz at SXSW, is coming to NYC and LA.


On October 29th, Monsters will be released in select theaters in New York City and Los Angeles. The reviews for this alien adventure have been pretty positive. So let's support this film, in the hopes that it'll expand to more cities nationwide.


Here's the official synopsis:

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.
