Skyline gets second trailer

“Once you look, it grabs hold…”

Skyline

Skyline, the tiny budget but massive scale sci-fi from the directors of Aliens Vs. Predators, has debuted its second trailer online.

Though a lot of the footage will be familiar to those who were at this year’s Comic-Con, and there are a few shots repeated from the flick's first trailer, there’s also a wealth of new material here to give us the goosbumps.

Set in Los Angeles, the film follows a collection of people who desperately try to survive when alien forces descend across the globe. Using a bright light to paralyse human beings, these evil ETs then abduct people into giant space crafts.

Check out the trailer below;

Considering Skyline was shot on a miniscule budget by sibling directors Greg and Colin Strause, it really doesn’t show. That’s mostly thanks to the fact that the bros have their own digital effects company, which makes Skyline look seriously slick.

There’s the obvious shadow of Transformers lingering over the project (those giant, metallic aliens have Decepticon written all over them), but hopefully the brothers Strause have crafted something that can stand on its own.

Skyline opens in cinemas on 12 November, 2011.

      I cant believe those dipsh/t brothers got another job after the farce that was AVP:R. Two things though, it looks quite fun but seems like all of the money shots have been used in the trailer. You gotta love the fact that alien spaceships are taking over the world and people still find the time in the thick of it to have a lovely kiss. Brilliant.
