When first announced at Comic Con this past year, I had trouble seeing Skyline as anything but another War of the Worlds. It no longer matters. After watching this second trailer today, I’m certain I’ll be in theaters to witness this one.
Sometimes I enjoy a thoughtful storyline with deep, complex characters that I can relate to. And sometimes I want to stuff popcorn in my face and watch aliens wreak havoc on the world. Skyline appears to be the latter kind of movie. Judge for yourself if you’re okay with that.
In the sci-fi thriller Skyline, strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth.
Skyline stars Donald Faison, Eric Balfour, David Zayas, Scottie Thompson, Brittany Daniel and brothers Colin and Greg Strause are directing. Look for it in theaters November 12.
