New Monsters: Dark Continent trailer lands online: watch now

An atmospheric new trailer has landed online for Monsters: Dark Continent .

Dusty, ominous and offering a first glimpse at the sequel's new 'sand bug' monsters, it's like Gareth Edwards' first film has collided with The Hurt Locker and Cloverfield .

In other words: it looks freaking awesome.

Set seven years after the first film, Monsters: DC finds the world now made up of a patchwork of 'infected zones', through which two soldiers battle for survival.

Check out the trailer below...

Directed by Tom Green and starring Johnny Harris and Sam Keeley, Monsters: Dark Continent is due in cinemas on 26 September 2014.
