Battle: Los Angeles Faux News Documentary and Viral Video

The aliens are coming! The aliens are coming! And they’ve been here for quite some time, if this news documentary on alien visitations are correct. Plus, the first of what I suspect will be plenty of “viral” marketing attempts by the studio. The viral stuff kinda reminds me of “Skyline”, actually.

For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world – Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before.

Starring Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, Aaron Eckhart, Joey King, Michael Peña, Lucas Till, Noel Fisher, Jim Parrack, Taylor Handley, Taryn Southern, Cory Hardrict, Ramon Rodriguez, Ne-Yo and directed by Jonathan Liebesman.
