Right off the bat this trailer for Gareth Edwards‘ Monsters (Magnolia, 10.29) suggests District 9. Which obviously encourages. The Mexican locations (actually Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico and Texas), the scattershot cutting, the raggedy-ass look…you can just tell. The only thing that gave pause was the “awesome!” quote from Ain’t It Cool. It’s almost an Armond White thing with those guys. If they’re batshit over a new film, there’s a decent chance I may not be.
