Teaser: Machinima Kaiju Web Short, “ENORMOUS”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
Premiering Thursday, March 20 on Machinima’s YouTube Channel is the short film adaptation of Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour’s graphic novel ENORMOUS. Written by TROLLHUNTER’s André Øvredal and directed by BenDavid Grabinski (THE COST OF LIVING), the monster movie tells of a post-apocalyptic world in which humans are now the bottom of the food chain and massive insect-like beasts have taken over. Get your first taste of this ravaged land and the creatures who roam it, below.
ENORMOUS picks up years after E Day, the worldwide attack of massive insect like beasts, as the remaining humans from all walks of life must band together to survive and fight back against the monstrous invaders. Viewers are introduced to Ellen (Ceren Lee), a mother who has lost her child, and watch as she prepares to play a major role in the human resistance. The cast also includes Steve Braun (Wrong Turn 2), and Erica Gimpel (Veronica Mars).
Grabinski proved up for stylish action with aforementioned short COST OF LIVING. Working alongside Øvredal, it seems ENORMOUS might be a healthy dose of monster mayhem in the current Kaiju resurgence.
