Yup. My hometown is getting destroyed by aliens. Again. Kind of puts the traffic and those annoying Santa Ana winds into perspective.

A rather nicely done, battle effects heavy teaser trailer for “Battle: Los Angeles,” an apparently military-themed alien invasion flick scheduled for this spring from Sony.

If this reminds you a bit of the movie, “Skyline,” being released today, Mike Fleming points that the makers of this film apparently feel that’s no coincidence and that there’s been talk of some possible legal action. Personally, I think everyone should just be grateful that the novel, The War of the Worlds, is now in public domain in the U.S., or the H.G. Wells estate could be suing the heck out of everybody.
