Trailer Watch: 'Battle: Los Angeles'

Moviegoers were treated to one of many new, upcoming alien invasion movies this past weekend when Skyline hit theaters, and now the floodgates are beginning to open just a tad bit wider since Sony has opted to use the Skyline release as an opportunity to showcase their new alien invasion film called Battle: Los Angeles by releasing one helluva action-packed trailer.

'Battle: Los Angeles'

Starring Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez and Michael Pena, among others, Battle: Los Angeles follows a marine platoon forced to square off against an army of alien ships invading Los Angeles. It's similar to Skyline in that both films are about aliens invading Los Angeles, but Battle: Los Angeles definitely looks like it brings a higher budget, more well-known actors, and some pretty nifty battle sequences. At first glance, it sort of looked like Ridley Scott was re-making Independence Day, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.
 
One aspect of these alien invasion films that hasn't really been explored with a great deal of realism is the way with which we would defend ourselves if ever put in a situation like this. Battle: Los Angeles looks like it wants to be a new kind of gritty war film; one that features humans battling aliens instead of each other, and I like that about it.  Looks cool from our end – what do you think?
 
Battle: Los Angeles hits theaters on March 11th.
