Review Ethan / 2023-01-21 22:13:04

Three years after making its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Anthony Madler’s Monster will receive its global release exclusively on Netflix in May 2021. The entire plot and cast of the legal drama are available to you, as well as a trailer and release date.

Anthony Madler will direct Monster, a Netflix Original legal-drama movie. It is based on Radha Blank's screenplay, Cole Whiley and Janece Shaffer. Before Netflix acquired the distribution rights for Monster, the movie was still called All Rise. Monster's title change is in keeping with the original screenplay.

Given the current social unrest in the USA as we’ve seen with the Black Lives Matter movement, and the historic oppression of African-Americans the release of Monster on the world’s largest streaming platform will spark lots of interest.

Monster will be released worldwide on Netflix Friday, May 7, 2021, according to confirmed sources.

Monster premiered its first time over three years ago at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Monster was then known as All Rise.
