Gareth Edwards’ MONSTERS

In anticipation of the theatrical release of Gareth Edwards’ MONSTERS, Magnolia Pictures has tapped renowned comic artist Frazer Irving to create a one of a kind poster for the film!

Frazer Irving is a world renowned British comic book artist who first came to public attention in 2002 after winning the National Comic Awards and Diamonds Comic Awards’ “Best New Talent” prize for his work on the graphic novel Necronauts.  His more recent works includes Ironman: Inevitable and Silent War for Marvel, Klarion The Witchboy and The Return Of Bruce Wayne for DC, Days Missing from Archaia and Gutsville with Image. Frazer is also contributing the art for Grant Morrison’s current Batman & Robin arc “Batman and Robin Must Die!” for DC Comics.

MONSTERS: Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures… Our story begins when a jaded US journalist (McNairy) begrudgingly agrees to find his boss’ daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.

MONSTERS is currently available on Video On Demand, iTunes, Xbox Live, Playstation Marketplace, Amazon and Vudu; in theaters on October 29th.

Synopsis:
I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS is the improbable but true story of a spectacularly charismatic conman’s journey from small-town businessman to flamboyant white-collar criminal, who repeatedly finds himself in trouble with the law and on the lam, brilliantly escaping from the Texas prison system on four separate occasions – all in the name of love.

Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) leads a seemingly average life – an organ player in the local church, happily married to Debbie (Leslie Mann), and a member of the local police force.  That is until he has a severe car accident that leads him to the ultimate epiphany:  he’s gay and he’s going to live life to the fullest – even if he has to break the law to do it.  Taking on an extravagant lifestyle, Steven turns to cons and fraud to make ends meet and is eventually sent to the State Penitentiary where he meets the love of his life, a sensitive, soft-spoken man named Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor).  His devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the perfect life together prompts him to attempt (and often succeed at) one impossible con after another.  Told with an uncanny sense of humor and a lot of heart, “I Love You Phillip Morris” is an oddball tale of what can happen when the legal system, a daredevil spirit and undying love collide.
