Battle: Los Angeles

Damn this looks so frickin' badass! Sony Pictures has just released a new, full theatrical trailer for Jonathan Liebesman's Battle: Los Angeles, the high-energy action flick described as basically Black Hawk Down meets an alien invasion in Los Angeles. Aaron Eckhart leads an ensemble cast of young Marines who are brought in to fight the aliens, and they meet up with Michelle Rodriguez and Bridget Moynahan along the way. I really like the characters and actors, I love the style and how insanely gritty this looks, I love all the action, the effects look great, I really love it, this is going to be awesome. Watch the new trailer below!

Watch the full theatrical trailer for Jonathan Liebesman's Battle: Los Angeles:

You can also watch the newBattle: Los Angeles trailer in High Definition on Yahoo

A young Marine platoon, lead by Aaron Eckhart, faces off against a surprise alien invasion in Los Angeles.

Battle: Los Angeles is directed by South African-born director Jonathan Liebesman, of Darkness Falls, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and The Killing Room previously, but he is really breaking out in a good way with this. The screenplay credit, according to IMDb, goes solely to Christopher Bertolini, of only The General's Daughter and Madso's War previously. Sony / Columbia Pictures will be bringing Battle: Los Angeles to theaters everywhere starting on March 11th this spring! Doesn't that look awesome or what?

@Josh: Agreed. I'm hoping for a film that's worth watching. Still, the trailers--this and the first--are freakin' awesome, and really grab the attention. Whoever cut them definitely knows their stuff. Oh, and what's with the "I don't want a happy ending" moans from some people? Jeez....had a bad day at work or something?

Marc McKenzie on Jan 12, 2011

Yes please.

If the movie doesn't manage to live up to the trailers, I might have to go out and club some baby seals.

Do they just recycle the same clip of michelle rodriquez in every war movie with aliens? I guess she must be doing something right. Other than that i like the trailer.

that was frickin awesome. hope the movie is just as good.

wow... goosebumps!!!!

locos on Jan 12, 2011

16

EPIC!!!!! I just had a spazz attack from how kick ass that trailer was. Clearly a socio/political message that is a needed slap to the face of the US of A too. Wow!

Brandon on Jan 12, 2011

17

I don't see how an action flick would be a slap to the face... but I agree it looks like there might be some sort of message there.

Phillip Gockel on Jan 12, 2011

18

the exact opposite. its saying hey america you're bad ass. keep it up

jeff on Jan 12, 2011

Funny, that's kinda the "message" I got out of it too. LOL

John Doe on Jan 13, 2011

exactly, the only thing that could fight America is aliens from space

i second that. looks like GLaDOS might be making a cameo.

Fuck!!! I was in the middle of watching it and then I had to go somewhere, so I put my laptop on sleep only to come back and find that it's not available anymore! FUCK!!! I really wanted to watch the rest of it too.

esophus on Jan 12, 2011

28

I was half expecting "Mad World" to start playing the whole time I watched the trailer. I would also love to see, if this gets franchised, the sequels set in other major cities, ie Battle: Hong Kong, Battle: Paris, Battle: London. Pretty damn incredible.

David on Jan 12, 2011

nevermind its working.

esophus on Jan 12, 2011

Epic is an understatement!

esophus on Jan 12, 2011

um.. i usually watch these at work... can u embed these???? LOL

That soldier smiling at the end of the trialer should be taken out. Too much info.

A-MAZ-ING

Now THIS trailer actually gave me goosebumps, unlike the teaser.

Rasta on Jan 12, 2011

35

wow - what hit me was the intensity of the action and how (even though it's an sci-fi story) they've captured the fear and horror of war. this is going to be epic. (i'm already wanting this on bluray!)

The Aliens coming in from the ocean toward the reporter gave me chills. Hope this is actually decent. There have been too many good trailers for awful films lately.

Traveler on Jan 12, 2011

37

Chilling. But we better not win, that would be stupid...

Cruzer on Jan 12, 2011

38

i'd be surprised if there was a "winner" by the end. i think (as others do) this war has the potential to span more than one movie.

But why?

John Doe on Jan 13, 2011

I love that song. The song was playing in my head the whole time i was watching this trailer. This looks like the way you do an Alien Invasion film. This may be the best one since INDEPENDENCE DAY.

Joe on Jan 12, 2011

its called "The Sun's Gone Dim" by Johann Johannsson. if you were wondering.

What a fitting song title. +1 for being on the ball with the info as well Xerx because that's exactly what I was scrolling through the comments for. Thanks.

floppytall on Jan 12, 2011

43

Gotta admit Xerxexx, that the song was a perfect fit for this trailer and the first teaser. I hope the movie is good, because these trailers have been excellent. Whoever put them together did a damned good job.

Marc McKenzie on Jan 14, 2011

44

Looks great. I fear for an Independence Day ending though...

Peter on Jan 12, 2011

45

me too

srdiaz on Jan 12, 2011

46

pete - what i REALLY fear is a "war of the worlds" ending. i hope they don't find out that that the aliens have some simple weakness to something.

Anonymous on Jan 12, 2011

47

that ending was awesome. it was awesome in the book (HG Wells at his finest) and awesome in the movie. humanity couldn't save itself. they would have been obliterated except for the aliens' lack of tolerance to bacteria

Josh on Jan 12, 2011

it was good ending for that film - i want something more original -even if it's the end of humanity.

Black Hawk Down meets District 9.......if it has good acting and story ....than in should be epic

I am really looking forward to this movie!

Omar Cavazos-Hi on Jan 12, 2011

Ok, now I'm excited. The other 2 trailers were meh. This looks epic.

Kimbo748 on Jan 12, 2011

This trailer alone captures the hopelessness that that one movie that I already forgot the name of lacked, the one with the dude from Scrubs.

Carlos on Jan 12, 2011

Independence day meets War of the worlds.

Dhiram on Jan 12, 2011

Godamn this is how you make an alien invasion movie. Frickin epic.

JimD on Jan 12, 2011

That's a damn fine trailer for a movie with a damn lousy name.

DCompose on Jan 12, 2011

EPIC! When the song begins to play... just epic!

Isildur_of_Numenor on Jan 12, 2011

59

Yeah they should cut the smiley dude out at the end of the trailer saying wee done it and the big what ever it is thing comming out of the groung looks a bit "War of the worlds" to me in a sense that they have been there for a while. But yeah a quality trailer and i bet a good fun invasion film.

Oioi on Jan 12, 2011

I'm sure the trailer will be great but I'm going to force myself from watching it. I deliberately avoided the final two trailers for District 9 and I know the film was better for going in blind. The trouble when filmmakers put iconic shots in a trailer is that you then look for them in the final film, which in my mind detrimentally affects your viewing experience. I'm certainly looking forward to seeing the film.

Payne by name on Jan 12, 2011

payne, i've watched this trailer several times and each time i watch it, the scenes are riveting.........this is gonna be a GREAT movie.

I think this is going to be great, I am actually in this trailer. I am in the armory between :43 and :47

Looks good but it better not have a dude that changes into an alien at the end

Anonymous on Jan 12, 2011

It's sad that the end credit sequence was the best part of Skyline. They should have made THAT the movie. Dude turns into an alien and wrecks shit up would have been a much better story.

TenaciousV on Jan 19, 2011

Trailer looks great, but that's the same thing a lot of people said about Skyline. I hope this movie is a lot better than that crapfest.

i was just on youtube watching this trailer in HD and one person had this comment: "is that stephen hawking singing the song?" the more i listen to it, the more it sounds like him.

Anonymous on Jan 13, 2011

the guy who sings it Icelandic...just sayin.

hey, buddy! don't take the comment the wrong way - i dig the song and think it's perfect for the movie. when i was watching it on youtube i just scanned the comments for anything interesting/crazy and i saw that steve hawking comment. it hit me as funny because the voice kind of sounds like him. hope i didn't rustle your feathers!

The trailer wasnt that great but i do still want to see this tho. Why is Michelle Rodriguez always the same character in movies lol. Glad to see Aaron Eckhart in this, if you ask me, he was the best in actor in The Dark Knight.

I'm in. Only red flag is timing. March = Bad films. Hopefully not a sign.

writebrained on Jan 14, 2011

98

Then maybe this one will beat the odds and be a great March film. Heck, getting a summer blockbuster-type film in March has got to be good, right? Only thing to do now is wait and see, I guess...and keep re-watching the trailer(s)!

Marc McKenzie on Jan 14, 2011

99

well this is for sure not like skyline, the whole movie doesn't "happen" in an apartment with Sg.Batista on the case (mios dios)...it looks good, it will be good. Good enough to say "i want my money back".

I thought 300 broke that trend.

Has anyone here ever played PS3's Resistance Fall of Men ? This looks like the movie, if the idea comes from that, it'll be great.

Zephyr on Jan 15, 2011

102

How can you say you like the characters? There's barely any semblance of character development in the trailer. Limited dialogue is a concern here. I've heard the script is cliche-ridden.

ASFan on Jan 15, 2011

Scary!

Battle Los Angeles: Big Brother's Latest Big Budget Brainwasher Last Saturday we used a gift card to go and see the new "Battle: Los Angeles" flick, a psyops collaboration between Pentagon war profiteers and TinselTown CGI geeks in which a Few Good Men accompanied by a couple of forgettable kids and has-been hotties Hoo-Rah their way from product placement to product placement in what is no doubt the first installment of a perpetual war for our planet's most precious resource (in this script water, not oil). Aside from making millions for Hollywood movie moguls, the purpose of this propaganda piece is to reverse the American military's real-world role as a resource aggressor and, during the suspension of disbelief, imprint on the minds of the audience that sacrificing our sons and daughters if not ourselves in an endless and ever-expanding war for riches and resource control is both honorable and a patriotic obligation.
