New Still Images from Battle: Los Angeles, Plus a Pair of Games
02.18.11 by BJSprecher
Sony Pictures has released a selection of new still images from director Jonathan Liebesman's (The Killing Room) upcoming sci-fi action movie, Battle: Los Angeles, that show a beleaguered U.S. military and a devastated Los Angeles. Written by Christopher Bertolini (The General's Daughter), Battle: Los Angeles follows a team of U.S. Marines on the front lines in L.A. as they attempt to rescue civilians and combat the alien invaders whose goal it is to wipe out all of humankind so that they can pillage our planet for its resources. Aaron Eckhart and Michelle Rodriguez lead the cast that also includes Michael Pena, Bridget Moynahan, Lucas Till, and Ne-Yo.
In other Battle: Los Angeles news, Sony is giving fans the opportunity to join the fight against the alien invaders in a pair of new online games. If mindless destruction is your game style of choice, there's a new first-person shooter that allows you to mow down aliens with a click of your mouse. It's a pretty low brow game, but it does offer a "sneak peek" of sorts at some of the different types of xenomorphs in the movie. If you're more into tactical games, there's also a new Facebook app that allows you to plan missions against the invaders with a chance to win prizes such as a Sony PS3, a Blu-ray player, gift cards and more.
