Battle Los Angeles Movie

Actor Aaron Eckhart got the lead role in Battle Los Angeles, an upcoming sci-fi action movie directed by Jonathan Liebesman. The film follows a Marine platoon coping during a sudden and unexpected attack by an alien force. The film is somewhat inspired by a real event that took place in Los Angeles 1942. It involved a large-scale anti-aircraft artillery barrage against unidentified glowing targets. Japanese fire ballon or real aliens? It’s still a mystery:


But Jonathan Liebesman’s Battle of Los Angeles is only loosely based on the event, it’s not a period movie, and aliens are more than likely to show up:

“When unknown forces put the City of Angels under attack, it is up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to come to the rescue. As the invasion hits the streets of L.A., the Marines become our first and last line of defense against a highly powerful enemy.”
