Teaser trailer for Battle: Los Angeles lands

Columbia Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for its forthcoming alien invasion flick Battle: Los Angeles. And it looks pretty damn good too. *Update* I’ve also added the international teaser, which has a very different look and feel.

The movie sees aliens invade and conquer the world in a wave of devastation and destruction. the only hope for mankind is a group of Marines who make the city of Los Angeles the scene for one final assault on the unwelcome visitors.

The always excellent Aaron Eckhart leads the charge, with the battle hardened Michelle Rodriguez good for a punch or two, and Michael Peña, Joey King, and Bridget Moynahan also showing the aliens who’s boss.

The movie is out March 25th.


For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world – Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before.
