The theatrical trailer for Jonathan Liebesman’s Battle: Los Angeles is now available online.  Starring Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, and Michael Pena, the film is of the “alien invasion” variety and follows a Marine staff sergeant (Eckhart) as he and his team take on the unwelcome guests.  A few months ago, the film premiered a great teaser trailer.  While the theatrical trailer doesn’t quite live up to that stellar cut, it’s still an effective and suspenseful 2:30 minutes that manages to raise my modestly high expectations for the film even higher.

To check out the trailer for yourself, hit the jump.  Battle: Los Angeles hits theaters March 11, 2011.

Here’s the trailer [via Yahoo! Movies]:  For all of our previous Battle: Los Angeles coverage, click here.

Here’s a 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 and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before.

    This is a movie that cannot be waited for. I won’t have it. Must see. Now.

    Okay I am the cynical bastard that gripes about every little thing, and that was pretty wicked awesome. There’s nothing to complain about that’s been seen, and that ending electric blue skies is a great ending tag line. Although I do have two primary concerns first is I hope they’ve built a small sense of humor into things, that is to say its not built at times to be comedic but at moments the situation just has a grin or a off beat joke that just makes those few moments funny as all hell, secondly I hope this isn’t a world saving plot, that idea is just kind of too stupid and cliche to put into gear, one platoon amongst many, one battle out of countless, just give us x number of hours with said characters in this outrageous scenario and what they do and how they survive.

      Thanks for catching. Hopefully nobody ran off and bought a time machine because of my foolishness.

    What’s unrealistically funny is the pea shooter 5.56 round doing any damage to hulking aliens.

    The very serious and grim take on a alien invasion is a little disturbing and new territory. Hopefully it doesn’t takeway from the film. This is coming off as way more serious than black hawk down. (which had a macho action heavy element)

    More like saving private ryan meet’s independence day. A strange mix.

      Yeah 556 is a peashooter round? Really? That is just stupid, calling 556 peashooter is like calling a 500lb bomb a firecracker. just because there is larger/arguably better version dos’nt make it total crap. If the fictional battle la aliens can take a 556 close range and not feel it, I doubt a 7.62 or a 5.45 would fair much better. But I guess we should just make sure in the event of a alien invasion everyone has 12.7AP capable weapons instead. Right?
