Check out this new trailer for Skyline, an alien invasion flick coming out November 12th, 2010 (so it’s not that long of a wait). This past Comic-Con, on the side of one of the hotels (the Marriott I think…?) There was a huge building size poster for the film. Later on I swear I remember seeing what looked like people shaped foam being released into the sky from the hotel. Maybe I was imagining it… didn’t get much sleep then… not much food either… whiskey may have been involved….
Here’s a synopsis I found on the interwebs:
In the sci-fi thriller Skyline, strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth.
Skyline is directed and produced by the Brothers Strause (Alien vs. Predator: Requiem), whose company Hydraulx has provided visual effects for Avatar, Iron Man 2, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and 300.
It looks interesting, but some parts of it seemed reminiscent of ID4… and you remember how well crafted of a story that was (how does an Apple laptop take down an entire extraterrestrial civilization with interstellar capabilities???).
