The first trailer for the alien invasion film 'Battle: Los Angeles' can be found here
The movie might suffer a little from audience fatigue given the similar setting and premise to this month's 'Skyline' (aliens invade Earth as seen primarily from the perspective of LA), but the quality of the acting talent involved is certainly improved; no offense to Turk from 'Scrubs.' The two films even share the same VFX artists (the Strause Bros. directed and did the FX for 'Skyline').
The director's short catalog of mostly bad horror films doesn't exactly inspire confidence, although the low-budget psychological thriller 'The Killing Room' was surprisingly tense for being primarily set in the one room that gives the film its name:
- Genesis and Catastrophe (2000)
- Darkness Falls (2003)
- Rings (2005)
- The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)
- The Killing Room (2009)
It's sort of a sad testament to the number of films shooting elsewhere nowadays that a film set in and featuring Los Angeles in the title is shot in Louisiana with the LA skyline done entirely on green screen, especially since it's not hard to find Marine bases near Los Angeles to borrow your vehicles and extras from.
