Looking forward to the upcoming alien invasion flick, Skyline? Then you may want to check out these new TV spots, images and poster for the movie, which Universal Pictures/Rogue Pictures has just released.

The plot of Skyline may not be the most original in the world – i.e., aliens invade Earth and the human population struggles to survive – but the high production values and impressive special effects on a relatively small budget have certainly grabbed the attention of sci-fi film fans.

To clue you in a bit more on what it’s all about, here is the official synopsis for Skyline:

After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherwordly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now the band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.

From the looks of these quick new TV spots, Skyline will be one of THE event movies of the Fall 2010 movie season. Check them out below:

Now check out the new Skyline poster and images that have been released:

Skyline is directed by Colin and Greg Strause (or “the Brothers Strause” as they’re often known) who missed the mark with their last directorial effort, Aliens vs Predator: Requiem. However, their experience with visual effects in films like Avatar, Iron Man 2 and 300 (to name but a few) is certainly reassuring considering how heavily Skyline relies on CGI.

The movie gives off a strong Cloverfield vibe with a dash of District 9 and a hint of Independence Day thrown in for good measure. Are those similarities an homage intended by the directors, or simply the formulaic by-products of a specific sci-fi sub-genre (invasion drama)?

Either way, we can always hope Skyline is as good as it looks and garners the same sort of interest and status as those aforementioned movies.

Skyline hits theaters on November 12th, 2010. In case you missed them be sure to check out the recent Skyline images along with an in-depth look at the production.

  1. I was really excited about this UNTIL I saw the brothers Strauss directing it, who made AVP Requim, perhaps one of the LOUDEST and LARGEST “F.Us” to alien/predator fans, which shouldn’t be together anyway, but what a HORRID film..I pray they learned a TON from that debacle and have turned out a good film here because they DO NOT know how to work with actors..as evidenced in AVPR, etc They’re masters of SPFX, CGI, etc. obviously and can do amazing things with NO BUDGET, but I’m now extraordinarily guarded about this as AVPR was just so HORRIBLE…I thought they were rightly run out of HOLLYWOOD, but then I remembered..FOX, they don’t care about ART, or decent standards, they care about MONEY..it’s funny too, they give AVPR a HARD R but won’t do it for Ridley Scott upcoming EPIC 2 part Alien Prequel..ARSECLOWNS…I hope it BITES them in the ARSE too, not via a bad film or showing but the knowledge afterwords..OH, if we’d ONLY…etc. however, I believe in RS and brother Tony and Sigourney being able to STOMP their feet a couple of times to get Fox’s executives crack smoking, dope snorting lunacy to LISTEN for once.

  2. I enjoyed AVP 1 because the story did give us more history of the two species, where AVP R did nothing. It was no better than a slasher film with the Predator as Michael Meyers. Plus the thing was so dark, I couldn’t see half the film.

    The first time I noticed the joining of these two franchises was in Predator 2, when the case on the Preds ship held an alien skull. Fans wanted the two to come together but we were disappointed?

    The trailers on this film look good, but trailers tend to show the best. Still, I want to see it.

  3. AVP 1 is one of the ost underrated movies of all time. AVP 2 just plain sucked. I watched it on DVD but couldn’t see what was going on and it wasn’t my TV (I enhanced the brightness just to be suRe!)

    So I couldn’t tell you if it was any good or not – but the darkness did not help its favour.

  4. (I hope you can see what’s going on in Skyline…)
