With director Jonathan Liebesman’s Battle: Los Angeles opening next weekend, I got to speak with most of the cast at the Los Angeles press junket. As most of you know, the film tells the story of an alien invasion as seen through the eyes of a Marine platoon headed up by Aaron Eckhart. The film also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, Michael Pena and Ramon Rodriguez. You can watch some clips and read the full synopsis here.
Anyway, every day this week you can expect a new video interview and I’m starting with Eckhart. As the leader of the troop of Marines sent to Santa Monica to protect and evacuate the people, Eckhart delivers an awesome performance. During the interview, Eckhart talked about the intense boot camp they all went through, how the film compared to what he thought it would be, filming in Louisiana, and I asked him about his photography and karaoke. Hit the jump to watch:
Finally, I’m happy to report I really enjoyed Battle: Los Angeles. Definitely worth seeing.
