Hasn't Hollywood reached its saturation point with alien disaster flicks? Apparently not, because next year will bring Battle: Los Angeles. Set in 2011, the film follows a series of events as extraterrestrials raid Earth, and one country after another succumbs to their attacks. Aaron Eckhart stars as a Marine staff sergeant trying to protect LA — the only city still standing. Bridget Moynahan also appears (apparently as the movie's damsel in distress), along with Michelle Rodriguez, who will be doing her signature tough-chick shtick.
The film sounds like typical blockbuster material, but the trailer bombards the senses (in a good way). They've packed in an insane amount of special effects, the music's incredibly eerie (and surprisingly moving), and we get just a peek at the alien life forms without giving too much away. I'm convinced, how about you? The movie lands on March 11, 2011, but watch the preview when you read more.
