Hope its better than Skyline, because it looks exactly the same.
Well it was made by the same special effects company Hydraulx which is own by Greg and Colin Strause, the directors of Skyline, in fact Sony Pictures is threatening to sue the brothers over using resources they had gained while working on Battle: Los Angeles without their consent to make Skyline.

This one being told from the perspective of soldiers fighting the alien threat should make it an improvement over Skyline which is told from the perspective of douchebag partygoers witnessing the alien threat.

Sadly, I worry that some may overlook it since it looks so similar to Skyline and they are reminded of those horrible memories. A shame since Battle: Los Angeles looks like it'll be the better of the two movies.

Of ALL the SCI FI themes out there, the one I LEAST expected to make a comeback was the Alien invasion one. Just amazing.

Re: Battle: Los Angeles Trailer

^ Okay, that was awesome. Thanks for posting that. I was cautiously optimistic before but this is definitely a must see now.

I like that it's sort of a reverse Starship Troopers with us being the Bugs being invaded by the Mobile Infantry dropped from space in their power armor.

They would have been better off calling it 'The Battle of Los Angeles' if they wanted to keep it connected to that event.
They probably didn't want to even look like they nicked the title of an album by Rage Against The Machine.
