I am posting this merely because Columbia Pictures had the audacity to release it. Below is a two second “snippet” from Battle: Los Angeles, which was previewed at Comic Con on Thursday in longer form.
Now, if you’re upset you aren’t down in San Diego, spending your hard earned money to wait in line for hours upon hours just to see a trailer don’t get too down on yourself. Today there was an alleged eye-stabbing in the convention’s 6,500 seat Hall H as one conventioner wouldn’t switch seats. Yes folks, he was allegedly stabbed in the eye by this man. That’s how important trailers have apparently gotten. As for the movie? He’ll probably just download the torrent.
Moving on, sit back, in your safe (I hope) environment and enjoy a solid two seconds of footage. I have uploaded this one to YouTube so I don’t run the risk of you having to watch 15-30 seconds of pre-roll before watching this video. Then again, I won’t blame you if you don’t hit play at all… however, you’re already here so have at it.
Battle: Los Angeles is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Darkness Falls) and stars Aaron Eckhart and Michelle Rodriguez. The film is an alien invasion feature actually based on a true story. It’s set to hit theaters on March 11, 2011.
