After turning up in 2016 with South African western, Five Fingers For Marseilles, director Michael Matthews returns with Love and Monsters with Dylan O’Brien and Jessica Henwick. Paramount Pictures is rolling out the film to home theaters beginning October 16.
Seven years after the Monsterpocalypse, Joel Dawson (Dylan O’Brien), along with the rest of humanity, has been living underground ever since giant creatures took control of the land. After reconnecting over radio with his high school girlfriend Aimee (Jessica Henwick), who is now 80 miles away at a coastal colony, Joel begins to fall for her again. As Joel realizes that there’s nothing left for him underground, he decides against all logic to venture out to Aimee, despite all the dangerous monsters that stand in his way.
Michael Rooker and Ariana Greenblatt also star.
