And by otherworldly enemies, of course, I mean aliens. Cowboys vs. aliens? What a novel idea! Below you’ll find a trailer for director Neil Johnson’s direct-to-video sci-fi actioner “Alien Armageddon”, a film which used to be called — wait for it — “Battleground: Los Angeles”. Borrow the concept from one movie, lift the title from another. The Asylum would be proud. Innocent ribbing aside, “Alien Armageddon” doesn’t look that bad, though I do have a serious soft spot for this kind of stuff. The large number of explosions certainly helps, too.
Do I have a short synopsis? Of course I do:
For years, UFO sightings have been documented around the world. What were once mere sightings have now become brutal attacks of epic proportions. As the human race faces total annihilation with every major city destroyed, only Los Angeles remains. Left with the task of saving humanity from extinction, a group of cowboys is the world s last stand in this Alien Armageddon.
“Alien Armageddon”, which stars Virginia Hey, Katharine McEwan, Ben Cain, Claudia Wells, and Julia Parker, invades retail shelves on December 6th, 2011. Take a peek at the trailer by directing your attention to the clip embedded below.
