I'VE been away for a while, but in my absence, one of the things that has caught my eye has been the trailers for Battle: Los Angeles.
The idea is Earth is invaded by aliens and we follow some US soldiers as they fight back, sort of like Black Hawk Down but with science fiction and monsters. Or, if you like, Shock and Awe but we are the people on the receiving end.
It looks the part, and while we’ve been here before (Skyline anyone?) and been disappointed, the fact that Aaron Eckhart is in it given me more reason to hope as he is a stamp of quality all by himself.
Here’s the latest footage of an alien ambush (with the dog making me think of The Thing) and the original trailer too. What do you think?
