What happens when aliens (from space) invade Los Angeles? Battle: Los Angeles, that’s what…
Plot Summary: “Battle: Los Angeles” revolves around a Marine staff sergeant (Eckhart) and his new platoon’s battle against an alien invasion on the streets of Los Angeles. Rodriguez will play Crpl. Adriana Santos, a member of a radio battalion. Pena plays the father of a boy the Marines find along the way, and Moynahan plays a veterinarian.
While this movie takes place in the near future, there actually was a Battle of Los Angeles back in 1942, that the first movie poster references.
The Battle of Los Angeles, also known as ‘”The Great Los Angeles Air Raid”‘, is the name given by contemporary sources to the imaginary enemy attack and subsequent anti-aircraft artillery barrage which took place from late February 24 to early February 25, 1942 over Los Angeles, California. The incident occurred less than three months after America’s entry into World War II as a result of the Japanese Imperial Navy’s attack on Pearl Harbor.
