Via Comicbookmovie, we're happy to present the teaser trailer for the British sci-fi sequel to the 2010 hit film, Monsters, with the Thor sequel-like title of Monsters: Dark Continent.

As is usually the case with teasers, not much of the plot can be inferred from the minute-long clip; despair not, my friends, for we have a handy official plot synopsis just for you:

Seven years on from the events of 'Monsters,' and the "infected zones" have spread worldwide. Humans have been knocked off the top of the food chain, with disparate communities struggling for survival. American soldiers are being sent abroad to protect US interests from the Monsters, but the war is far from being won.

Noah, a haunted soldier with several tours under his belt, is sent on a mission: an American soldier has gone rogue deep in the Infected Zone, and Noah must reach him and take him out. But when Noah's unit and transport are destroyed, he finds himself with only a young and inexperienced cadet for company - the brother of the man Noah has been sent to kill.

The two soldiers must go on a life-altering journey through the dark heart of monster territory, accompanied by a young local woman to guide them. By the time the three of them reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront the fear that the true monsters on the planet may not be alien after all.

Directed by , known for the popular Channel 4 series Misfits [as a side note, I greatly recommend that show to anyone who likes dark comedy, bizarre superpowers and raunchy humor], Monsters: Dark Continent is also being produced by up-and-comer , who helmed the first Monsters movie three years ago (he's currently directing Godzilla, slated for a May 2014 release). , of Skins and Game of Thrones fame, stars alongside .

Check out the tease below, and tell us what you think in the... ah, you know where.

Monsters: Dark Continent will hit theaters on an unspecified date next year. We'll keep you posted!
