Looks like this is the month for alien invasion trailers. Last week we saw one for the low-budget Skyline, and this week comes another for the even lower-budget (how can that be possible?) Monsters, from director Gareth Edwards. But never has an alien invasion looked so awesome for so little.

Before you check it out, here's the official synopsis:

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.

Amazingly, the film was shot with a five-person crew and a cast of two in Guatemala, Belize and Mexico, using locations and supporting actors found along the way.

So what do you think?

Monsters hits theaters Oct. 29, 2010.
