By now we've all seen the trailers for "Skyline" - a low(er) budget scifi job due out in November from FX pros The Strause Brothers. Thus far, the "tease" has been that it's a more narrowly-focused, harder-edged "Independence Day" with funkier-looking alien spaceships that vaccum people up rather than incinerate cities. Solid pitch, to be sure, but it needed a little something else to really "pop" for me.
And so, as if on cue - a bigger, more-revealing "Skyline" trailer with one reveal in particular that sounds an awful lot like "pop." Take a look:
The Alien Invaders are... GIANT MONSTERS. Or, at least, they brought some with them. But the important thing is... GIANT. FUCKING. MONSTERS.
