Ten stories are woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only to terrorize unsuspecting residents.
Nakashima is set to direct the live-action adaptation of manga Shingeki No Kyojin aka Attack on Titans, which describes a world where voracious Titans have suddenly appeared, forcing humanity to live inside wall-protected cities. All we know so far, “the manga’s sizable cast of characters will be whittled down to focus on a singular protagonist. Nakashima is still trying to work out how to depict the giants – full CG or motion capture?“. Also, the director stated it would be quite different from his previous films, it sounds pretty ambitious.
A giant radioactive monster called Godzilla appears to wreak destruction on mankind. The story begins in the 50s, when humans accidently awaken a prehistoric creature. To kill the monster, nuclear missiles are fired at it in the Pacific. When that fails to kill it, its existence is concealed from the public. Decades later, Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston), a scientist at the Janjira nuclear plant, discovers an anomaly in sonar patterns and signaling. A tragic accident at the plant involving Joe’s wife Sandra (Juliette Binoche) tears the Brody family apart. Eventually, Lieutenant Ford Brody (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and his father Joe decide to investigate the Janjira collapse.
When five college friends (Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams) arrive at a remote forest cabin for a little vacation, little do they expect the horrors that await them. One by one, the youths fall victim to backwoods zombies, but there is another factor at play. Two scientists (Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford) are manipulating the ghoulish goings-on, but even as the body count rises, there is yet more at work than meets the eye.
As a group of New Yorkers (Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman) enjoy a going-away party, little do they know that they will soon face the most terrifying night of their lives. A creature the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city, leaving death and destruction in its wake. Using a handheld video camera, the friends record their struggle to survive as New York crumbles around them.
After a powerful storm damages their Maine home, David Drayton (Thomas Jane) and his young son head into town to gather food and supplies. Soon afterward, a thick fog rolls in and engulfs the town, trapping the Draytons and others in the grocery store. Terror mounts as deadly creatures reveal themselves outside, but that may be nothing compared to the threat within, where a zealot (Marcia Gay Harden) calls for a sacrifice.
In the age of heroes, a mighty warrior named Beowulf (Ray Winstone) arrives at the court of King Hrothgar (Anthony Hopkins) and offers to rid the kingdom of a vicious demon called Grendel. He successfully slays the beast but thus incurs the wrath of Grendel's mother (Angelina Jolie), a creature as vicious and vengeful as she is seductive.
