Director/producer/effects wizards Colin and Greg Strause have released a couple of images from their upcoming feature Skyline. The poster (header) is pretty cool; the tagline “Don’t Look Up,” not so much. But I’m a sucker for anything alien creepy, and this seems to fit the bill.
Skyline follows a group of friends awakened after a late night party by an eerie, bright light. Outside, people are being drawn to the light and sucked up into the sky. You can get a visual and some sound effects on that here or if that’s too much work for a Friday, just check out this image:
The friends have to figure out how to save humanity from being destroyed, disappearing or ground up as cloud food and rained back upon them (that one’s a guess). Hmm, I wonder how they do that while staying inside? Let’s place bets on creating an alien ear-piercing sound like a dog whistle, that sends them scurrying back to their home planet.
Skyline stars Eric Balfour, Donald Faison, Scottie Thompson and Crystal Reed and opens November 12, 2010.
