TIFF 2010: Monsters Q&A with director Gareth Edwards and cast
Monsters, directed by Gareth Edwards, was one of my top picks for this year’s TIFF. I had heard some good things about the film – some were calling it this year’s District 9, made at a fraction of its budget. Going in, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. It turns out that aside from the fact that Monsters and District 9 both feature their aliens in a ‘real-world’ setting, the two films have almost nothing in common. In actual fact, Monsters totally surprised me — it is unlike any other sci-fi monster movie I have ever seen.
I will be posting a full review soon, but for now please enjoy this video of the Q&A session from the film’s TIFF premiere. The Q&A was hosted by the Midnight Madness Festival programmer, Colin Geddes, and features Gareth Edwards and the two leads – Whitney Able and Scoot McNairy.
