This is the new international trailer for Battle: Los Angeles, from Jonathan Liebsman, (acclaimed director of… uh… the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake), starring Aaron Eckhardt and Aaron Eckhardt’s chin dimple. I hope you like alien-invasion movies, because there’s going to be a lot of them. Besides this one, which makes Roland Emmerich all misty with nostalgia, there’s Skyline, Battleship (the ships fight aliens, if you’ll remember), JJ Abrams’ Super 8, and probably a couple more I’m forgetting. So far I have to rank Battle: Los Angeles slightly above Skyline on account of the trailer not having awesome dialog like “NO!”, “LOOK OUT!”, and “THEY’RE COMING THIS WAY!” every three seconds.
All in all, not a bad trailer for something that’s probably going to suck big monkey nuts. I see that Michelle Rodriguez is the first actor listed on the IMDB page, yet is nowhere to be seen in the trailer. But how will I know if she fights back with a defiant sneer??? Stop playing coy with me, Battle Los Angeles, I came here to chew gum and see hardcore Latinas, and I’m all out of gum.
UPDATE: Here’s the much better domestic trailer. At least it looks pretty.
DOUBLE UPDATE: Here’s a screencap of the alien, courtesy of WWTDD. Don’t click if you don’t want to see it, duh.
