This battle will take us some time to forget. It will be fought next year and it is easily the most anticipated film of next year and with the best trailer out there in ages. The trailer’s effect has been heightened by the music Sun Goes Dim. It really creates a lot of ripple effects of thought in the trailer, which is quite rare in these alien invasion films.
There is no way anything like this would be attempted again. It still looks like a younger brother to District 9. The film has been described as Black Hawk Dawn meets Independence Day.
Here is an official synopsis to the film.
Battle: Los Angeles revolves around a Marine staff sergeant (Eckhart) and his new platoon’s battle against an alien invasion on the streets of Los Angeles. The movie is presented as an intense real-time war movie from the perspective of the Marines. It has been described by some as Black Hawk Down meets Independence Day.
The director has the following of the fanboys, but serious critics might be weary of this film. It will be expected to have something meaningful to offer and we will surely keep you posted.
