First Engagement: Marines vs. Aliens in New Battle: Los Angeles Preview Clip
03.02.11 by BJSprecher
In previous clips and trailers, we've seen "meteors" splashing down off the coast of Santa Monica and gi-normous spaceships rising up from beneath buildings in L.A., but in the latest preview clip from director Jonathan Liebesman's (The Killing Room) upcoming sci-fi movie, Battle: Los Angeles, we get our first look at human-alien combat.
Written by Christopher Bertolini (The General's Daughter), Battle: Los Angeles is inspired by the 1942 "attack" on Los Angeles and centers around a group of Marines who lead the fight against an alien invasion. In this new preview clip, a squad of Marines led by Staff Sergeant Michael Nantz (Aaron Eckhart) enounter the aliens in their subterranean den beneath the streets of L.A. in a scene eerily similar to the first engagement between Colonial Marines and the xenomorphs in James Cameron's Aliens.
Michelle Rodriguez, Michael Pena, Bridget Moynahan, Lucas Till, and Ne-Yo also star.
