You know, the guy who directed the surprise blockbuster of 2014, Godzilla, that Gareth Edwards? Well, before he resurrected Godzilla, he did a film in 2010 called Monsters, about some monsters who are trying to get across the Mexican border and into the US. The sequel to that film (without Edwards) has released their sequel trailer and this looks impressive, in more ways than one. Please, think of films that the following footage reminds you of, where you have seen certain looks or shots before:
At least threefold.
Like the word "monster," however, "alien" has a political overtone that must be clarified and we can be sure this film will do it. In Cowboys and Aliens (Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig), as you may recall, there was a little Mexican boy who clearly was not a symbol for the aliens in that film, although "illegal aliens" can be applied to Hispanics illegally crossing the American border; that film was concerned with the Nazi implications of what's happening in the country, along with the slow degrading of the US-British alliance (thanks, Obama) and those two political changes in America is what is alien to the US.
