Aliens vs. Angelinos and Eckhart in the epic trailer for Battle: Los Angeles

01.11.2011

After a couple of early looks at the impending alien overtaking, the new trailer for BATTLE: LOS ANGELES finds the invasion in full swing, from the extraterrestrials' beach landing to the chaotic clash in, on, under and over all the streets in that Randy Newman song. It also introduces the human cast and... some other big things.

Aaron Eckhart leads the charge to defend the real estate, protect the innocents and ensure the possibility of more ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS squeakquels. He's assisted by Bridget Moynahan, Michelle Rodriguez, Michael Peña, the military might of the gat-damn Yoo-Nited States, and the energetic direction of Jonathan Liebesman (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE BEGINNING).

Check out the trailer below or in HD at Yahoo.

Extra Tidbit: The previous description of "BLACK HAWK DOWN meets ALIENS" seems pretty accurate, yeah?

Probably going to get minus'd into oblivion, but for some reason- I'm just not sold. I really don't know why. Sci Fi is my forte too.

Fucking wow!

The trailers are just getting better and better. If the movie matches the awesomeness of this trailer, we're in for one hell of a ride.

Because kids exist in the real world. "Hey, lets do a movie about the Earth being taken over, but lets leave out the millions of kids on Earth...thats way more realistic"...

Very cool trailer

These movies are always fun to watch and however they end up, good or bad, i'll watch them over romcoms anytime.
But i am kinda sick of rodriquez being cast in as it seems every movie and always playing the same character. WHY cant they cast the perfect man for these kind of films...MICHAEL BIEHN

If this film turns out to suck, give some kind of Oscar to the trailer makers.

WOW! This looks really good! It looks like a cross between Black Hawk Down, Independance Day, Cloverfield, War of The Worlds, District 9, Transformers, and probably a host of other films! Hope it's great!

Love the trailer. Looks like a great alien invasion flick and love the fact that Aaron Eckhart is leading the battle.

Having everything going to hell with the depressing music was also a nice touch. By the way, does anyone know the song from the trailer?

Can't wait for this movie.

HOLY SHIT

Love a good alien invasion movie. I like the oppressively dark and desperate tone the movie seems to convey. Let's hope they don't pull a BS ending like "computer virus saved the day" or "Justin Bieber music killed the aliens".

I will not be watching this trailer because the first trailer more than sold me on this film. Watching more would just be ruining what is bound to be a good film.

The cast is solid as is the director. I know people here hate reboots, sequels, prequels, etc. and TCM: The Beginning was all of those. Despite that, I thought that film was very good and definitely well directed. (Darkness Falls was shit but again, well directed. Just a real POS script.)

I'm excited for this.

Looks epic, but very serious in tone. So yes, it's more of Black Hawk Down meets War of the Worlds as opposed to Transformers meets District 9.

Eckhart has my vote for anything after 'Thank You For Smoking'.

The destruction in this looks realistic and devastating.

Don't get too excited...

I have a feeling that this is going to be a huge letdown and I don't quite understand how Jonathan Liebesman (the guy who did Darkness Falls) was chosen for the director of this movie.

The visuals look great, but have we heard a single line of dialogue yet? Obviously the way they are doing it is going to help sell the movie, but zero dialogue in trailers is usually a really bad sign. Don't get your hopes up too high...

Looks Pretty Sick

I think I will be enjoying this one. Looks like it has promise to actually invoke emotion from the audience.

I'm 50/50

Black Hawk Down? Yes. Aliens? I don't think so. This gave off a Transformers/War of the Worlds/District 9 vibe instead.

Alien invasion movie we've been waiting for..!!

given that it is only a trailer, i dont believe this movie can disappoint. this is the alien invasion movie i've been waiting for. I mean the best alien invasion movie to come out in the past 10 years happens to be an animation (monsters vs. aliens)
BATTLE : LOS ANGELES i have high hopes!
