Perhaps the general public is getting tired of alien invasion movies. There do seem to be a lot of them out there. But District 9 did very well at the box office and was critically acclaimed (nominated for 4 Oscars) so maybe we aren’t all that tired of the genre.
The latest is a movie called Skyline, and a trailer for the film just arrived online. Apparently it debuted at Comic-Con this year, but for those of us who didn’t make the trek to San Diego, we now get the chance to see it. And it is impressive to say the least.
Synopsis: After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherwordly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.
Look for Skyline in theaters November 12.
