Dinosaurs vs. Aliens is really a project that needs no introduction. It centers on dinosaurs battling an alien invasion, you know, during dinosaur times. Men in Black director Barry Sonnenfeld and comics writer Grant Morrison have teamed up to create the motion comic program, and now a trailer has landed online. It provides only brief glimpses at the illustrations, but if anyone wants to see dinosaurs taking on alien invaders, here’s your chance. Sonnenfeld hopes to turn the idea into a feature film, and he previously told Steve that it’d be a photorealistic CG movie in 3D. Time will tell if the financing comes together to get Dinosaurs vs. Aliens on the big screen, but for now we’ll see the story play out in the motion comic format. A graphic novel adaptation of Dinosaurs vs. Aliens is also on the way via Liquid.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Dinosaurs vs. Aliens debuts on Yahoo! on July 23rd.

Aliens” is a motion comic version of Liquid’s upcoming graphic novel based on a secret world war battle that was never recorded in our history books.
