As I mentioned previously, there are a ton of alien invasion flicks in development right now, and here’s yet another one to add to the list. The first time anyone had really seen or heard anything about Skyline was at this year’s Comic-Con, and now the first teaser trailer has been released online. It seems to be a pretty straightforward Independence Day-esque tale about hostile aliens coming to Earth and obliterating the planet.
According to the plot synopsis, strange lights appear in the sky above Los Angeles, drawing people outside and then sucking them up into oblivion. The trailer doesn’t show all that much, but it’s certainly enough to get me interested. Skyline is directed by Colin and Greg Strause, who previously directed Aliens vs Predator: Requiem. They are also doing visual effects for another upcoming alien invasion movie, Battle: Los Angeles. What do you think, does this have potential or will it just be a mindless CG-fest? Skyline hits theatres on November 12th; check out the trailer after the jump.
