After flying under the radar, the upcoming sci-fi action film Battle: Los Angeles premiered a strong teaser trailer last night that should get people talking. It’s a bold trailer without dialogue, haunting music, and lots of explosions. It was even willing to risk not giving the title at the end. There’s now an international trailer online and it takes a more standard approach: voice-over guy, aliens attack, lots of explosions. Sometimes that can work too, although I definitely premiere the US version.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, Battle: Los Angeles stars Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Ramon Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, Ne-Yo, and Michael Peña. It opens March 11, 2011.

Here’s the official synopsis for Battle: Los Angeles:
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.
