‘Battle: Los Angeles’ Trailer Brings The History, Then Blows It Up

There are a lot of explosions in this trailer. It seems like most of the movie is going to be viewed from behind the cloud of powered concrete where a highway pylon used to be. That’s a good thing.

There’s a blending here of antique footage and a CGI update on Independence Day. It seems a little striking that there’s no dialog or acting moments in the marketing here, but it’s also difficult to think of Aaron Eckhart giving a bad performance.

Thanks go out to the marketing team for Space Invaders: Battle: Los Angeles for warning us to get out of the city ahead of time. I’ve already done my part by leaving way back in 2007. The signs were all there, people. [Apple]
