Magnet Pulls In Monster and Centurion
If you've been checking Cinema Blend this past week you'll have seen all kinds of news and reviews coming in from SXSW and ShoWest courtesy of our fearless leaders Josh Tyler and Katey Rich. Earlier today, Josh posted a review for Monsters, an alien infestation flick set in northern Mexico, sorely lacking in plot and the aforementioned aliens.
But according to THR, Magnet Releasing was, "blown away by Monsters" and therefore is going to be bringing it to the general public. Exactly when and in what capacity, wide release, limited, or direct-to-DVD, has yet to be determined, but despite Josh's misgivings about the film, it sounds like there's enough positive going on for it to be enjoyable. Keep your fingers crossed for at least a limited theatrical release.
Swept under the rug by THR is that Magnet also picked up director Neil Marshall's latest film Centurion which follows the legendary 9th Roman Legion on the path to their disappearance. Anyone who's seen the trailer for this will know just how awesomely badass it looks so this should be big news coming out of SXSW. There are very few reviews as of yet for the Descent director's latest effort, but chances are, with the muscle he had in front of the camera, and the talent he had behind it, Centurion will be a sure fire hit.
More on when we'll be able to see Monster and Centurion for ourselves when the news becomes available.
