According to this article, Colin and Greg Strause’s alien invasion movie “Skyline” is so awesome, so downright genre-rific, that film sales and distribution company IM Global is already pitching a “Skyline” sequel to buyers at the Toronto International Film Festival, or TIFF to the cool kids out there.
I gotta admit, “Skyline” is an intriguing looking movie (trailer below), and out of all the alien invasion movies invading (ahem) theaters this year and in 2011, it’s probably the cheapest thanks to its mostly isolated location (a skyscraper), with much of the “outside world” rendered in CG.
Still, a sequel already? I suppose it doesn’t need as far to go to turn a profit as the other alien invasion movies, like Peter Berg’s massive “Battleship” or the expensive “Battle: Los Angeles”.
Starring Eric Balfour, Scottie Thompson, David Zayas, Donald Faison, Brittany Daniel, Crystal Reed, and directed by the brotheres Strause, “Skyline” follows a group of friends partying in a skyscraper when aliens begin vacumning citizens of Los Angeles into their ships. Things, as they say, go downhill from there.
