And you thought AndyatTheMovies.com had died a wintery, frozen death! I think not! I’m back from the holidays and I’m ready to bless your buns with the first Trailer Tuesday of 2011. Just think, only 92 more Trailer Tuesdays until Jesus returns and the world gets engulfed by the sun!
Two months ago, amidst the Naked Harry Potter Scandal, I posted a trailer for Battle: Los Angeles with a hearty pronouncement the sci-fi action movie, due in theaters on March 11, 2011, was nothing short of cinematic Viagra. Lo and behold, a new trailer (30 seconds longer!), one that gives a little more insight into the story, has popped up on the web and my declaration of excitement still stands. Maybe it’s the single digit temperatures here in Northern Utah, but Battle: Los Angeles feels like summer come early, and, honestly, if you can’t get excited about Marines and an alien invasion, it’s time to check your pulse and pull your head out of your netherregions.
Again, my nerd radar is going bonkers with all the sultry CGI, explosions and military-meets-aliens goodness, as well as the casting of Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), but the realist inside knows this is a March release and that begs the question: Smart scheduling by the studio, or lack of confidence? I’m not sure I have an answer to that quandary, but I do know I’ll see this opening weekend.
Check out the trailer after the jump and let me know what you think. Yay or nay?
