A prequel/sequel/interquel to Cloverfield.
Taking place before, during, and after the events of Cloverfield, a small group of soldiers are enlisted to track down the LSA (Large Scale Aggressor) and alert the United States of the next incoming attack from the creature. But after the Hammerdown, things become more convoluted when the Large Scale Aggressor survives the bombing and continues to wreck havoc along the area, with more tumultuous surprises along the way.
MPAA: Rated PG-13 for intense sequences violence, disturbing images, peril, and strong language.
(I was aiming for either a Godzilla 2014 style movie with dark and gritty elements to the movie instead of going with the found footage style, though there can be exceptions.)
Major Michael Roberts - A hard-nosed man in his 40's to 50's and leader of the Alpha squad in his group that is given the task to track down the creature while he was returning home after a 2 year tour.
SSgt. Donald Mason - A witty and friendly early to mid 30's soldier who is overly curious about the events of Cloverfield and is Roberts's right hand man.
