Undoubtedly planning to use today's theatrical release of Skyline as a launching pad, Columbia Pictures has released the first trailer for Battle: Los Angeles online, which stars Aaron Eckart and Michelle Rodriguez. The alien invasion film sees release on March 11, 2011.
What's really interesting about the timing of the trailer's release is its proximity to the Strause Brothers' film, which you may recall came under fire from Columbia's parent company, Sony, a few months back. Sony claimed Skyline stole ideas from their film, and that the visual effects company that worked on both projects was unauthorized to use the same equipment on the lower-budget production.
Regardless of controversy, see what you think of the teaser below and hit the jump for a synopsis!
