Battle: Los Angeles gets a new international poster (and title)

01.25.2011

Apparently people around the globe aren't that concerned if aliens are invading Los Angeles. While BATTLE: LOS ANGELES focuses on the SoCal specifics of a worldwide alien invasion, Sony Pictures felt the title wouldn't exactly draw international audiences so they've retitled the film WORLD INVASION with BATTLE: LOS ANGELES being used as a subtitle. Just a friendly reminder that, Hey these aliens are attacking all of us, okay, not just the Kardashians, paparazzi and the rest of the Los Angeles population (in fairness, I don't expect anyone to give a shit about aliens blowing up New Jersey and that includes most New Jersey residents).

We've got a new international poster for the newly monikered WORLD INVASION that swaps out the floating surfers in the US version for the more universal theme of being stuck in traffic. (Strangely, I've never seen the traffic in Los Angeles so light...)

Umm...

This poster makes it sound as though Los Angeles has invaded the world and we have to battle it?

*Sigh*

Not sure which offends me more, the fact that Sony thinks "international" territory is stupid or the fact that "international" have really proven to Hollywood that their knowledge of upcoming movies is so shallow that they need stupid in-your-face titles to draw them into a cinema. I live in Malaysia and I see plenty of shit like this happen. TDK was titled "Batman : The Dark Knight", AVPR became "AVP2" and Tangled is known as "Rapunzel : A Tangled Tale" here. Geez.

Oh, and the poster looks

Oh, and the poster looks really dumb. There's practically no chaos in the streets. Just a bunch of people driving and watching the "very ordinary fireworks" in the skies.

I'm with DarkElfa, if the movie works, it would be cool to have a sequel running parallel to the events in this film elsewhere....let's just hope it's not Battle Delaware or Battle Idaho (no offense, of course, to the fine folks of Delaware or Idaho).

the poster is horrible, and the new title is even worse than the first one...
this movie will hit rock bottom real quick, and thank God for that...

Irks me that they filmed most of this in Louisiana instead of LA.

So films about New York they film in LA (read Spider-Man Reboot!) cause it's cheaper. And then films like this they film in Louisiana. Wonder if they'll go full circle and shoot a Louisiana pic in New York. Probably not, they'll just get that done in Canada somewhere…

This guy I know just had an operation for bowel disease and just like him this new title is missing a colon.

Could it mean they plan on more movies? World Invasion: Battle Berlin?
But I agree with the rest of the folks, bad idea adding "World Invasion".

Well done Sony pictures, for taking what was a punchy and catchy title (Battle L.A just had a really nice ring to it) and turning it into a low budget Syfy channel original...

I suppose this means The Asylum will have to work a tad harder at a terrible title themselves for the inevitable rip off.

Too much.

Personally, I prefer Battle L.A.. Adding World Invasion is unecessary. Or they could have just cut the whole LA thing and only stick with World Invasion.

Can't wait for the movie, but that World Invasion title is crap.
