Skyline is the sort of movie that has not right being good…but it sure does look like it might be. Made on a minuscule budget (by modern standards) and created by Colin and Greg Strause the guys responsible for Aliens Vs. Predators: Requiem (oh the horror) you can see why I say that it shouldn’t be good.
However if this new trailer is any indication we could be looking at a Cloverfield/District 9 sized hit. The trailer, which is basically a shorter version of the one shown at Comic-con, depicts some of the alien invasion threat, as well as glimpse of the stars Donald Faison, Brittany Daniel, David Zayas and Eric Balfour. And it all looks pretty darn impressive.
Skyline opens on November 12th.
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.
