First Clip from Battle: Los Angeles

I’m not sure if this first clip from Jonathan Liebesman’s “Battle: Los Angeles” is indicative of the movie as a whole, but if it is, it certainly seems to be trying to live up to the hype of being “Black Hawk Down” with aliens. The thick fog was a nice touch, too. Then again, once the aliens appear with their hand-cannons shooting lasers, you’ll probably stop thinking this thing can possibly be real pretty quick.

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.

The street fighting commences March 11, 2011.
