Sony Pictures has released this great new trailer for Battle: Los Angeles. Over the last few years I’ve seen so many Sci Fi/Action movies where the advertising campaign was better than the actual movie, fingers crossed this won’t follow that trend and it will be a good’en! For those that don’t know Battle: Los Angeles is an alien invasion story presented as an intense present-day war movie, seen from the perspective of a group of Marines. It’s been described by lazy journalists some as ‘Blackhawk Down’ meets ‘Independence Day’. I’m bracing myself for some awesomeness – this looks great! Battle: Los Angeles is in cinemas March 2011.

When unknown forces put the City of Angels under attack, it’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to come to the rescue. As the invasion hits the streets of L.A., the Marines become our first and last line of defense against a highly powerful enemy. Bridget Moynahan (I, Robot), Michelle Rodriguez (Avatar) and Michael Peña (World Trade Center) co-star alongside an ensemble cast including Ramon Rodriguez and Ne-Yo.
