Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien is running from creatures again in upcoming adventure-horror film Love and Monsters.
The official trailer has arrived for the film, which has O’Brien playing a guy who, seven years after all manner of giant creature took over the world in the Monsterpocalypse, decides to travel 80 miles across an infested land to find his high school girlfriend (Jessica Henwick, Iron Fist).
Produced by Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy and marking the sophomore feature for director Michael Matthews, who previously helmed underseen South African western Five Fingers for Marseilles, Love and Monsters looks like a lite bit of entertainment. Paramount’s releasing this one straight to home entertainment, which used to suggest a bit more about the film’s quality but has now become a much more safer bet for studios. Could be fun.
Love and Monsters, also starring Michael Rooker and Ariana Greenblatt, hits US digital platforms on October 16th.
Official synopsis for Love and Monsters:
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. The fun-filled and action-packed adventure also stars Michael Rooker and Ariana Greenblatt.
