What exactly are we looking at in new Battle: Los Angeles poster?

Feb. 18, 2011by: Paul Tassi

I was skeptical of the concept, but BATTLE: LOS ANGELES won me over with its rather haunting trailer, even though I still think it fundamentally looks like Michael Bay directing DISTRICT 9.

My biggest concern stems from the aliens themselves, who from what I've seen are overdesigned to the point of being nonsense. I get that not all aliens probably have sleek looking ships, but these just seem like someone dipped a giant magnet into a junkyard, and decided to fly across the galaxy in with whatever stuck to it.

What is this thing? A ship? A city? One of their foreheads? I can't even tell, but I do know that Michelle Rodriguez will probably blow it up.

Speaking of blowing up, that's what you can do with this poster if you click on it and head over the Pimpin' Poster Palace. That was a flawless transition.

ya, isn't this what we see coming up at the end of the trailer?
it looks like it's crashing sideways and blowing up in this poster.
it also looks like you can see the image from this poster towards the end of the teaser

I think that this could be the giant ship we see coming out the ground in the latest trailer. Whatever it is though, it looks like we're kinda screwed.

Really

Based on the info i got about the aliens,which is probably a quarter of what you know given YOUR JOB.I would guess that the large machine we keep seeing in trailers/in this poster.Is some sort of water treatment plant/conversion plant,something to do with the water they want from us.

That's some funny writing there, Mr. Tassi. " seem like someone dipped a giant magnet into a junkyard, and decided to fly across the galaxy in whatever stuck to it. What is this thing? A ship? A city? One of their foreheads?"
