If you don't remember the 2010 alien invasion film Skyline, or you never saw the wretched movie, consider yourself lucky. But since the film pulled in over $66 million worldwide on a budget of just $10 million, that means a sequel is coming. The end of the first film hinted at a pretty damn wild and crazy continuation since one of the leads was sucked into the mother ship of the invading alien race and turned into a half-human, half-alien hybrid. Now the teaser poster revealed on the developing sequel's Facebook page seems to hint at the story continuing from that point, which actually doesn't sound wholly uninteresting. More info below!
Here's the sales poster for Beyond Skyline, from the original 2010 film's Facebook page:
The film is being sold at Cannes Film Market, so there's no guarantee we'll ever hear of the project again, but the image piques our interest, even though a sequel still seems completely unnecessary and unwanted. The original film from directing duo Greg and Colin Strouse (who have more talent in visual effects than storytelling) was empty of any substance and merely looked nice, but maybe a sequel can tell a better story? However, this time it will be Liam O'Donnell, writer and producer of the first film, behind the camera, so we're not all that hopeful this will be better than the first film. Anyone care about Beyond Skyline?
