Aliens are all the rave these days. It seems like since District 9 swept audiences across the country, studios are all about greenlighting big-budget alien war films that would normally get thrown into the scrap heap. This weekend we’re getting one of those with Skyline, and now we’re getting the first look at next March’s big alien film, Battle: Los Angeles.
While Skyline takes more of the pedestrian approach, Battle: Los Angeles looks to be taking more of the military style. Here’s the official synopsis.
For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world – Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before.
This film also has a slightly bigger cast, as Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, and Bridget Moynahan star. Check out the full trailer after the jump, and join the fight on March 11th.
