Below is the trailer for Battle Los Angeles, from director Jonathan Liebesman (Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning), a movie that was originally pitched as something akin to Cloverfield in Los Angeles. As you can see from the trailer, however, it’s more like Cloverfield meets Black Hawk Down meets every Roland Emmerich ever made. It’s just a tremendous amount of destruction and explosions and a couple of shots of Michelle Rodriguez holding a gun. Mostly, though, just destruction. And some sad, plaintive music. It’s gonna be absolutely old-man balls ridiculous.
I’m kind of looking forward to it.
