New Monsters trailer shows more alien aftermath (video)

Monsters is one of my most anticipated releases. Directed by Gareth Edwards in Mexico, it shows what a good filmmaker can accomplish, even with almost no money. All of the special effects were done by Edwards himself. Like 28 Days Later, it's a supernatural movie with monsters, but it's more about the psychology of the characters. Cloverfield 2, this is not. Still, it's one of way too many alien invasion movies coming out in the next couple years.

Men in Suits shows the men inside Hollywood's monsters (trailer)

When I was younger, the most interesting thing about Star Wars was how George Lucas made everything work. How did they fit a man into R2D2? Who played the Ewoks? Is there someone inside Jabba the Hutt? Men in Suits answers questions like those and helps us get to know the interesting men and women behind Hollywood's monster and robot suits.

ALIEN INVASION movies are taking over Hollywood! 16 of them! (FULL LIST)

Pack up your children and grab yer guns because aliens are going to be everywhere for the next couple years. Hollywood has always loved them, especially Steven Spielberg, but thanks to the success of District 9, Star Trek, and Avatar last year, a flurry of new alien projects are in development. Sadly, not a one of them is a sequel to Batteries Not Included. Maybe next year. I've left out a couple movies like Green Lantern since they are only somewhat alien related. 

Behold the full list below.

Monsters (a Cloverfield/Mist-ish drama) has an official trailer

Monsters has been building buzz for a while. The setup is pretty simple: aliens landed in Mexico some years ago and about half of the country is now quarantined with big walls while the U.S. and Mexican militaries battle the super-sized creatures. (See chart above.) A photojournalist (Scoot McNairy) has to travel through the infected zone to find a girl. Things don't go as planned.
