Monsters of California trailer: a sci-fi adventure directed by former Blink 182 member Tom DeLonge is coming to theatres and VOD
Sixteen months have passed since we saw a teaser trailer for the sci-fi adventure Monsters of California, which marks the feature directorial debut of Tom DeLonge, the guitarist and co-lead vocalist in the band Blink-182. At that time, we had no idea when Monsters of California was going to be making its way out into the world… but now we do. The film is set to receive a theatrical and VOD release on October 6th, and with that date less than a month away a full trailer has arrived online. You can check it out in the embed above.
DeLonge’s interest in UFOs, the paranormal, cryptids, and conspiracy theories is very well known, and his research in those areas was put to use when crafting the story for Monsters of California with co-writer Ian Miller. The film follows teenager Dallas Edwards and his misfit friends as they attempt to unearth answers to a series of mysterious, paranormal events happening around Southern California. As they peel back the layers on this onion of the unexplainable, they unravel the extraordinary secrets held within the deepest levels of the Government.
Richard Kind (Mad About You), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Arianne Zucker (Days of Our Lives), Gabrielle Haugh (Jeepers Creepers 3), Sports Illustrated model Camille Kostek, and newcomers Jack Samson, Jared Scott, and Jack Lancaster star.
DeLonge had this to say about Monsters of California: “Anyone who knows me, or follows me on social media, knows I’m no stranger to the paranormal, which is why directing Monsters of California was a no-brainer. The film takes my fascination with the unexplained, combines it with the skate culture I grew up a part of, and tosses in my ridiculous sense of humor that millions got to witness during my Blink-182 days. In recent years, I’ve had the good fortune of helping the Government remember how much they care about UFOs through the work we do at To The Stars, and it’s that experience which helped inspire this movie. I can’t wait for audiences to see the f**ked up fun adventure these kids go on.”
Monsters of California is coming to us from The Cartel and Striker Entertainment, in association with To The Stars Inc, a division of DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science. DeLonge produced the movie with Stan Spry and Eric Woods of The Cartel. Anthony Fankhauser co-produced for The Cartel and Russell Binder co-produced for Striker Entertainment. DeLonge also wrote and performed the score.
