Columbia Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for director Jonathan Liebesman’s alien invasion film Battle: Los Angeles and it’s fraking awesome. I absolutely love the way this teaser has been cut, and wait till you hear the song it’s cut to. Note to other studios, this is how you sell a movie in a teaser trailer.
If you’re not familiar with Battle: L.A., it stars Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), Michelle Rodriguez (Machete), Michael Peña (Eastbound & Down), Joey King (Ramona and Beezus), and Bridget Moynahan (Blue Bloods) star.
Check out the teaser trailer after the jump and tell me you’re not excited.
Battle: Los Angeles hits theaters March 11, 2011. You can watch it HD on Apple here.
Here’s the synopsis:
For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world – Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before.
