With any alien invasion movie the one question that always stands tall is “what do the creatures look like?” I was kinda hoping to keep my eyes E.T. virgins until March 11 when Columbia Pictures releases Jonathan Liebesman’s Battle: Los Angeles — so much for that.
A new issue of Famous Monsters goes behind-the-scenes of the creation of “alien foot soldiers” with FX house Spectral Motion. If you want to see some heavy spoilers, take a trip indie and enjoy! I can only wonder if these are just some of the “smaller” aliens… what else does Liebesman have up his sleeve?
And seriously, how cool is it that this is kinda based on true events?
“For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world – Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before.”
