That Was Fast: New & Totally Different International Trailer For ‘Battle: Los Angeles’

That Was Fast: New & Totally Different International Trailer For 'Battle: Los Angeles'

We’re not movie marketing experts or anything but something tells us it’s probably not the best idea to start the rollout for your alien invasion flick on the same weekend another invasion alien flick hits theaters with a similar premise and directed by the same guys who did the visual effects work for your film. Just saying.

Anyway, hot on the heels of the domestic trailer for “Battle: Los Angeles” a completely different international trailer has landed for the upcoming film and while it’s a pure piece of slick eye candy that has us mildly optimistic, that goodwill is also dampened by the presence of Ne-Yo. The Jonathan Liebesman directed film also stars Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, Michael Pena, Lucas Till (”X-Men: First Class”) and Ramon Rodriguez (”Transformers 2”), and tracks the leader of a Marine platoon trying to make it across a battle-ravaged LA in the midst of a global alien invasion. In short, shit is going to blow up real good.

“We Can Not Lose Los Angeles”…d’uh. Where would great movies like this come from then?

I really enjoyed the B&W stock footage shot of German soldiers protecting Los Angeles at the beginning of this trailer…I hope the film can maintain that level of comedy


I’m sure this was done on purpose. It further highlights how completely retarded Skyline looks.
