Today Apple posted a trailer for yet another alien invasion movie BATTLE: LOS ANGELES. Not much is known regarding the plot of the film except the short synopsis about a Marine platoon facing off against an alien invasion in Los Angeles. According to Apple and the end of the trailer the film is looking to release on March 11, 2011 and stars Aaron Eckhart, Bridget Monynahan, Michelle Rodriguez and Michael Pena. The film was directed by Jonathan Liebesman and was written by Christopher Bertolini.
I have to say that before watching this trailer my excitement and awareness of the film was relatively low, but after watching this trailer I am almost completely turned around. I think the film looks like it is going to be a ton of fun, and actually blows the teasers for the recently released SKYLINE out of the water in my opinion. The brief glimpses of the aliens in the film kind of give off a Terminator vibe, and even kind of evokes the action heavy scenes of DISTRICT 9 and the music used in the trailer fits and builds tension perfectly. If the trailer succeeds only at one thing it’s that it has at least sold one ticket for release day! Head on over to Apple or watch the embedded video below for the trailer!
