Aliens Attack in this First Trailer for Battle: Los Angeles

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
Today is a big day in the world of science fiction films. The trailer for Jonathan Liebesman's Battle: Los Angeles is debuting courtesy of Trailer Addict and the reel is quite the cinematic experience. Reminiscent of the upcoming Skyline, aliens do not come in peace, but on a tidal wave of warfare. Have an early look at the two minute clip inside and pay close attention to the music, which is initially quiet and then something much more sinister later.

The synopsis for Battle: Los Angeles is here:

"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" (Trailer).

Release: March 11, 2011.

Director: Jonathan Liebesman.

Writer: Chris Bertolini.

Cast: Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Mynahan, Joey King, Michael Pena, Lucas Till, Noel Fisher, Jim Parrack and Taylor Handley.

The excellent trailer is here:

*It is interesting to note that writers and filmmakers in general really know the psychology of their viewers. There is an innate mistrust of people or in this case species, which we do not know. The filmmakers of Skyline and Battle: Los Angeles know this. They are exploiting viewers fear of the unknown to draw audiences. But, would an alien race really be harmful or something else? It is hard to say, without more evidence.
