Movie Trailer: Skyline

At Comic Con, we saw the first footage from a small sci-fi thriller called Skyline, written and directed by the Strause Brothers. The alien invasion film was made on a small budget, but has fairly large-scale ambitions. Now you can see the same trailer we caught at the Con, after the break.

It takes a minute for this trailer to kick in, but there's a suggestion that things might get interesting when we start to see the action at the end. Sure, there are a lot of recent and iconic sci-fi films being referenced here (and in the other footage screened at Comic Con) but I remain curious to see what this one is really all about.

Here's the official synopsis:

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 is directed and produced by the Brothers Strause (Alien vs. Predator: Requiem), whose company Hydraulx has provided visual effects for Avatar, Iron Man 2, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and 300.
