New ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ Channels ‘Gears of War’ for Inspiration

March 11th can’t get here soon enough. Previously, Columbia Pictures has released two awesome trailers for Jonathan Liebesman’s Battle: Los Angeles, and we’ve seen even more extraordinary “real life” images from which the movie is based on — but what we’ve yet to see are some truly off-the-charts awesome images. This morning Empire scored a look at two new stills that look straight out of the “Gears of War” video game. Awesome is an understatement. In addition, inside you’ll find a new international poster that continues the theme of the alien “arrival”, courtesy of IMP Awards.

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.
