Just How Mega Is 'Mega Spider'?

So just how mega will director Mike Mendez's Mega Spider be? Really stupid epic mega if the film's new advertising art is any indication. And movie ads never lie, right?! After the jump, check out the full image that was just unveiled at this year's American Film Market.

Our friends at Shock Till You Drop nabbed the following pic at AFM, from which Shock's been posting quite a few first-looks at actors like Nicole Kidman, John Cusack and Jessica Biel in upcoming movies. But none of these folks matter when there's a ten-story tall spider in da house!

Here's another image of the film's angry arachnid in the middle of L.A. traffic. According to Shock -- which offers the following synopsis -- Mendez is currently in post-production on Mega Spider, which stars Greg Grunberg, Lombardo Boyar, Clare Kramer and Ray Wise...

Surviving extermination by nuclear eradication, a horrible alien mutation in arachnid form is now growing at an exponential rate and making its way toward downtown Los Angeles. Hot on its spindly heels is a crack military unit with absolute authority, lead by an obsessively driven commander and his beautiful but lethal sidekick.

Unfortunately for them, this mutant spider has an array of deadly defenses including the ability to virtually disappear through camouflage. But the creature's real adversary quickly turns out to be a hot-shot local exterminator armed only with cocky attitude, some fast one-liners and his home-made gadgets. Joining forces with the military team, this blue-collar hero sets out to exterminate what has now become a monstrous 10-story tall MEGA SPIDER.
