Well, the blockbusters for this year are finally starting to trickle out. First up is Battle: Los Angeles, which hits screens Friday, March 11th. You might recall this film as the one that Sony thought the crew from Skyline might have re-used some of the effects shots for… hopefully that will be the only connection between these two films that both seem to focus on an alien invasion of LA.
Battle: Los Angeles is directed by Jonathan Liebesman who like Neill Blomkamp director of District 9 also comes to us from Johannesburg, South Africa. Jonathan Liebesman whose previous gigs include Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and Darkness Falls seems to be an interesting choice for a $100 million sci-fi epic given his genre background; he also has been tapped as the director of the Clash of the Titans Wraith of the Titans. (*Insert tired release the Kraken joke here*)
