For a time before this movie existed, if you searched for Battle: Los Angeles the top result was the Battle of Los Angeles, a real life event that took place back in Los Angeles in 1942 where the military shot artillery at "something" in the sky one night. Jump ahead to 2011 and now we've got Battle: Los Angeles - hmmm, a mysterious connection? On top of that badass Super Bowl spot for this sci-fi action movie, Sony has debuted an exciting new 63-second TV trailer that's pretty damn cool. Additionally, they released a "newswrap" video about the Battle of Los Angeles event and how it might all be connected. Check out both new videos below!
Watch the newest TV trailer for Jonathan Liebesman's Battle: Los Angeles:
Watch Sony's newswrap video about the 1942 Battle of Los Angeles:
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! I'll be there on opening day, will you?
